“Hi, I’m Bruce from A1 Pest Control in Wahroonga & we’ve got a big problem with termites. The termites have gone all the way through this house.

We’re suspecting they are from these large gum trees. So we’re using an extra long bit, a 600 ml bit to get through to the centre of the colonies and the termites have gone up between the brick cavities and there’s a lot of areas where we can’t access.

So a bit of a problem at play so we’re using a Termidor termite barrier and Sentricon Always Active termite baits.”

Are rodents infesting your Wahroonga property? We can help you. Our commercial grade baits are sure to handle your rodent issue. Give us a call today.

This prime location was first settled around the year 1822 by the convict Thomas Hyndes, who eventually became a well known and wealthy landowner.

There were many orchards scattered in the area, and it began to prosper.

After the railway was built it became fashionable for the wealthy members of society  to build large mansions in the days leading up to the Great Depression.

A common misspelling of this leafy suburb is “Wahroongah” and has neighbouring suburbs of Hornsby, North Turramurra and Thornleigh.

Your home or business could be protected by a trusted local firm.

Wahroonga Termite Control

Controlling termites can be a difficult task, for efficient termite control we suggest regular inspections of your property, at least once a year in cooler areas and twice a year in the milder areas of Sydney.

Video Transcript:

“So, this house is in Wahroonga, which is the the Upper North Shore of Sydney. It’s had quite a bit of termite damage, and we’re looking at probably the source of the problem.”
These large gum trees which we’re going to drill and treat, we’re putting some termite bait stations in. Yeah, so it’s pretty typical of a house in the the Upper North Shore. It’s a little bit run down, but it’s certainly got some termite problems because of the double brick construction.”
“The Upper North Shore is part of the Northern Beaches Council, as a matter of fact, and this area lies between Chatswood and Hornsby in Sydney’s northern suburbs.”
So it’s Bruce from A1 Pest Control Wahroonga”

Video Transcript:
“The termites have had a field day with this house, and as you can see, there’s some damaged timber there where they’re last seen live, but this house has had a history of termites.”
“I remember when we first came here and did our first treatment over five years ago, there was some termites in that door frame that’s been replaced, and to make it worse, the wall linings of this house were all timber.”
“All the walls at the front of the house were infested, and they’ve been since replaced, and that’s treated timber that’s gone in there. This is still the original wall linings, and to make it even worse, we can’t get in under this area here, so I recommended that we gain access, and perhaps, replace these timbers with treated timbers, because there’s a lot of areas we can’t get to.”
“Hopefully, the always active, the Sentricon always active, and the Termidor will do its job, and it’s one of those jobs where you have to be very particular in the application where it’s applied, and where it cannot be applied. So there’s some limitations on this property, but we’re going to be trying for the the best possible result.”

Termite Inspection Wahroonga 

Wahroonga is classified as a high risk for termites, as is the rest of Sydney. A1 Pest Control service Waroonga present 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 Wahroonga

If you rent a domestic house or commercial building, it is important to carry out a flea treatment once the lease runs out.

Video Transcript:

“Hi, I’m Bruce from A1 Pest Control Wahroonga. We’re here doing an end of lease flea treatment.”
“So the tenant has had animals, and they need a spray to make sure there’s no signs of any fleas. So we’ll be doing a really thorough inspection, the treatment, and of course handing over the certificate once we’ve completed the job.”

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.

"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 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."
