Main Pests

Termites, ticks and spiders are the main pests in the this leafy suburb, mainly because of the leafs!  Homes near the bushy areas tend to attract these pests, as vermin love to be sheltered and hide from natural enemies. So it’s a great idea to get regular pest control and competent termite inspections in place.  So why not give us a call today to discuss further options?

History and facts about St Ives

St Ives is located towards the upper north shore of Sydney in NSW. St Ive was first visited by Govenor Arthur Phillip in 1788, they first made camp at what is now known as Hunter Ave. At some stage, St Ives produces a small scale timber industry, one can still see examples from this from the 30m high trees. The St Ives post office opened in 1885, the first school followed shortly  in 1889. St Ives, at first, were slow to develop due to its distance from the city but after world war 2 it has been on a steady incline of residents.

Ticks related to meat allergies?

More and more people in the northern beaches areas become aware that they’re experiencing allergic reactions to red meat. A severe local reaction to a tick is a risk factor for developing mammalian meat allergy (MMA). MMA is where a tick’s saliva changes one’s immune system to react to the meat of mammals – beef, pork and lamb. At Mona Vale hospital if someone walks in with a severe allergic reaction, the first question doctors ask is did you have any red meat for dinner and then have you been bitten by a tick? It is estimated that there are well over 500 cases in the Upper North Shore area alone. This number is so high that it is up there with the most  common food allergy, peanut allergy. The difference between MMA and other food allergies is that MMA has a delayed reaction of two and ten hours. Most reactions happen between 4-6 hours after ingestion.

Australia have a problem with Ticks on the whole eastern seaboard of Australia with about 50% of people at risk of getting MMA. The question is why is this allergy growing at such a rat and why is Sydney’s North Shore and Northern Beaches such hot spots? Some believe it to be the proliferation of possums and bandicoots,. When a tick feeds on a small mammal, it picks us a small amount of alpha-gal from its blood, which is transmitted from the tick’s gut into the human when the tick is pulled off (see how to do this correctly below).

Prevention is the best cure! It is best to get a tick treatment around your house before Tick season (August to March).

Video Transcript: So you have a tick how should you remove it?
Here’s my tick now this is what most of us will do. We’ll either scratch it off or reach for the household tweezers.
Now this is precisely the worst thing you can do.

As you remove the tick you squeeze it and all its contents go straight into your bloodstream.

From Clinical Immunologist Professor Sheryl Nunen of Royal North Shore Hospital: “What they need to know is “Household tweezers are tick squeezers.”

So what should you do? Well you should go to the chemist and buy a spray containing ether.

So, something like “Wart Off” or “Medi Freeze” skin tag remover.

Place the nozzle conveniently over the tick, spray feels cold.

Freeze the tick and wait about 10 minutes for the tick to die.

Once it’s dead, you can just brush it off. Freeze it, don’t squeeze it!  That would be hard guys. So that will kill the adults but what about the tiny ticks?  The little larvae or nymphs now these are my little larval ticks and for these I’m going to use a cream containing Permethrin.
Now this is basically the same kind of cream as you get for scabies. Let’s rub that in. Ticks will all die and soon you’ll be able to just rub them off. We dab them don’t grab them!”

Video Transcript:

Hi, I’m Bruce from A1 Pest Control, and I’m doing a tick control treatment at the moment.

We do a twin strategy, we coat all the foliage with the Biflex spray, and then we use a granular treatment called “Brigade” that treats the soil.

So if there’s any animals like bandicoots or possums entering the the yard dropping off fleas, sorry ticks, the ticks will be nullified straight away by the crystals which will last up to six months.

So if you live in the St Ives area and looking to get a tick treatment or tick control done, please give me a call.

It’s Bruce from A1 Pest Control in St Ives.

Termite Inspection St Ives 

St Ives is classified as a high risk for termites, as is the rest of Sydney. A1 Pest Control presents reports that consists of eleven pages and digital photos upon request, that outline the current state of your property.

Termite inspections are designed to detect termites at beginning stages to stop server harm to your house, once your house is inspected and the report is conducted we can then move ahead with termite control and treatment method if there is an issue.

It is highly recommended a termite inspection report is carried out at least once each twelve months and every three to six months for high-risk regions.

Pest Fumigation Service

Fumigation is one of the most effective approaches of termite control in the USA, as they are plagued by dry wood termites that only exist there. Fumigation in America requires the substantial use of toxic chemicals such as Methyl Bromide and tenting off the house for a number of days while the pest treatment takes place. There are several methods of managing a termite infestation, including baiting, chemical barriers, and fumigation. Don’t be deceived by the term “fumigation”. This method is rarely used on termite infestations in Australia and is a layman’s term used to describe a gassing technique that we don’t use (as it is too toxic). Gone are the days when you were forced out of the family home for hours and even days! The kind of treatment recommended is reliant on building construction and environmental conditions and depends on the species of termite. Not all techniques work on all kinds of infestation.

End of Lease Flea Treatment St Ives 

If you rent a domestic house or commercial building, it is important to carry out a flea treatment once the lease runs out. One of the most irritating types of pests in domestic buildings is fleas. The sources of a flea infestation are dogs and cats. “Grass” fleas or “Sand” fleas are misnomers for what is normally the cat flea, which attacks both dogs and cats.  Pets can easily pick up flea larvae, or grown fleas from other animals. They then rapidly transfer them into the home: infesting bed sheets, carpets, rugs, and other parts of the home. If your domestic or small business property needs end of lease flea treatment, do not hold back to consult with us, a pest control contractor you can trust.

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."
