Termite Control Sydney
Termites cost Australians millions of dollars each year due to the damages they cause properties. This is the reason we recommend regular building and pest inspection and termite treatments. In addition, our pest control team offers termite control services:
Pest spray is the number one weapon in the arsenal of a pest control expert. Without it, our pest exterminators would resort to less efficient methods for pest control. A lot of pest sprays are available to consumers in the market. These pesticides, insecticides, and even fungicides can effectively deal with the pesky critters in the long term. While these pest sprays are readily available, it does not mean they are harmless. Incorrect and careless application of these substances may affect the health of family, pets and the environment.
Professional pest controllers have access to industry-grade pest sprays. However, as a family-owned business, we understand the effect of some pest sprays on human health and the environment. At Masters Pest Control, we are committed to only using safe and environmentally-friendly pest control solutions. That is why our pest sprays of choice are Termidor and Pyrethrum.
Termidor is a professional pest spray product formulated to deal with native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and dry wood termites. These termite species thrive in the ideal Sydney climate.
Termidor works by using an advanced nonrepellent liquid technology that takes advantage of natural termite behaviour. This liquid is undetectable for termites as they cannot see, taste or even smell the solution. As a result, termites will unknowingly come into contact and ingest Termidor, inevitably killing them.
The “Transfer Effect” observable in termites makes Termidor doubly effective as termites are very social insects that live in large colonies. Through a process called trophallaxis, termites transfer food throughout the colony. Thus, termites will take Termidor back to the colony, feeding even the termites that have not been in direct contact with the pest spray.
Pyrethrum is our general pest spray of choice. It is an organic insecticide with key ingredients found naturally in nature. It is made from the plant Tanacetum cineraria folium, also called pyrethrum daisy, a species of the chrysanthemum plant family. The substance is found in the flower heads and is a natural pest deterrent. In addition, pyrethrum can break down easily, making it one of the best environmentally-friendly pest sprays.
The pyrethrum works by affecting the central nervous system of cockroaches, mosquitoes, spiders and other similar insects. This pest spray will cause a behavioural reaction that makes these insects avoid the area in low doses. In higher concentration, the spray will remove the insects’ ability to move and eventually kill them.
Why are termites so common in Sydney?
Sydney is a breeding ground for termites because of its climate and environment. There are at least 300 species of termites in Australia alone. Termites are one of the most common pests found throughout Sydney and the rest of the country.
Termites are found throughout the year but swarm during certain seasons. The common subterranean termites typically come out during spring and summertime. These insects prefer a warm climate and are often found in moist or damp areas. Meanwhile, dry wood subterranean termites come out by the end of summer or during the fall season.

9 Tips to Protect your Property
For honest, friendly and reliable pest control service, request a FREE quote or schedule an immediate on-site inspection.
As homeowners, we all have experience dealing with pests. From tiny creepy crawlers like termites to small animals like rats, these pests can damage your property if not addressed quickly. So having a regular pest examination and treatment is a no-brainer. And yet, not everyone is convinced that pest control is a necessity.
There are a lot of misconceptions on pest control circulating the internet. To help you separate the facts from fiction, let our pest control experts at Masters Pest Control shed light on some of these myths. In addition, here are tips to help protect your property.
1. You don’t need pest control if you don’t see pests.
Not seeing any crawling critters is not evidence that they are absent. In fact, pests are actually good at hiding in your home’s nooks and crannies. Termites, for example, can build their homes deep underground and may have eaten the inside of your home before noticing them.
2. Termites only eat wood.
You would be wrong to think you are safe from a termite infestation if your house is not made of wood. Termites eat wood, but what they are really after is cellulose, the material wood is made of. These pests will feed on anything made of cellulose—books, documents, clothes, photographs or any plant by-product.
3. Cockroaches only live in dirty homes.
While these pesky critters prefer damp and dirty places, it doesn’t mean that a clean home cannot have cockroaches. As long as they have food and water to sustain them, they can live in a clean, well-maintained home.
4. The most effective bait for rats is cheese.
Multiple cartoon shows from our childhood show that cheese can entice rats into traps. In reality, rats will eat anything, but they prefer sweeter food, such as fruit and grain. So next time you are setting a trap, you might want to put a bit of cereal or peanut butter instead.
5. Your cat is the best rat control, expert.
We recognize your pet cat and all other pet cats in Sydney as our partner in the pest control industry. However, there are some areas in your home that even your pet cat cannot reach. Rodents also reproduce quickly, and your cat may miss them all.
6. Pest control in Sydney is expensive.
Pest control price actually depends on the type of treatment you are getting and the size of your home. Pest control in Sydney is actually affordable. The most expensive is termite treatment largely because of the extent of the damage they could do to your home.
7. Pest control chemicals are toxic.
Innovations in the pest control industry have led to the development of green pest control methods. Our experts at Masters Pest Control put your health and safety as our top priority. We use a low-toxicity and environmentally-friendly pest control treatment method that is safe for your family but still effective against pests.
(RELATED: Child-friendly and pet-friendly pest control)
8. Store-bought pesticides work just as well.
Off-the-shelf insect sprays can be effective for small infestations but not enough for large-scale ones. Pest control experts have the license to use stronger-grade pesticides that are more effective than store-bought sprays.
9. Professional pest control is a waste of money.
Many homeowner fears about pest control come from the misconception that the pests come back anyway, even if you hire a pest control expert. However, effective pest management goes beyond just spraying pesticides and calling it a day. Pest control experts will place safeguards to prevent the infestation from recurring and may even offer a warranty.

Pest Information Sheets and FAQs
Servicing a variety of pest types for all properties
Silverfish can get into unopened food packages. They eat carbohydrates (starch, cellulose and sugar), glue in books, shampoos, soaps, silk, linen, and plants. They also eat mould, fungi, and dead insects.
Silverfish (Latin name Lepisma saccharina) is an insect that can grow up to 12-20 mm in length. They have a teardrop-shaped body. Its colour varies from white to brown-grey or bluish-silver. They look and move similar to fishes. Silverfish have two long antennas on top of their head and three long bristles on their rear.
Where can you usually find silverfish?
These insects can live in most climates, but they prefer dark and moist places such as attics, basements, laundry rooms, garages, storerooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Silverfish can be commonly be found hiding under the sink or in bathtubs, bookcases, closets, doors, and window frames. They also hide in storage boxes full of clothes or papers.
Female silverfish can lay from 2 up to 20 eggs per day, depending on the species. They can lay eggs during any period of the year. It usually takes 3 to 4 months for them to grow from larvae to adulthood.
Silverfish Pest Control
There are two ways to get rid of silverfish. It’s either chemical or natural silverfish pest control.
Chemical pest control is more expensive and can be harmful. By choosing natural pest control, you will get a safer treatment that won’t do any harm to you, your children and your pets. There is a wide range of solutions and traps for this kind of insects that can be bought at stores or made at home.
Natural Silverfish Pest Control
The first step is to inspect every nook and cranny where there may be a silverfish infestation. Silverfish are typically found near their food source. The next step is to select the pest control product that you will need. There are many available solutions available over-the-counter such as the following:
- Citrus sprays – Citrus is used to prevent and repel bugs. Most insects like silverfish don’t like citrus smell. You can use the citrus spray in areas that are infested by silverfish.
- Silverfish don’t like spices like bay leaves, whole cloves, and sage because of their strong scent. Place these spices in a thin sachet in an infested area.
- Mothballs – Insects like silverfish can’t stand mothballs. A good way is to place them where insects are seen often.
- Diatomaceous earth – A white powder lethal for pests and causes dehydration to silverfish.
- Lavender oil – Mix a teaspoon of lavender oil with water to repel silverfish.
- Cucumber – Place thick slices of cucumber in infested areas.
- Cedar – Place cedar shavings in infested areas to repel silverfish.

- Liquid pyrethrin is the most commonly used chemical product for silverfish extermination. By spraying it on the cracks of furniture, doors and windows, you will be able to kill adult silverfish.
- Boric acid is another solution for killing silverfish. It is a chemical powder that can be used in small amounts on infested areas.
Note: If you choose to use chemical products to get rid of this pest, you have to know that you will pay much more by buying silverfish pest control products. You also have to be aware that using chemicals will not guarantee success.
Baits And Traps for Silverfish
There are many traps on the market that can be used for silverfish extermination and they can be cheap and safe to use. One of them is moist and rolled up newspapers. You tie them with elastics and leave them overnight to catch these bugs. Next day, they might be full of silverfish and you just throw it in the garbage outside the house. Repeat this method every night until you rid of them all.
Take the glass jar and mask it with a tape. You can fill it with bread or with water, and few teaspoons of sugar. Place that jar near infested places. Silverfish will climb up the tape and will fall in the jar. They will die in the jar because they are not able to climb up the glass jar.
Sticky traps are also effective and you can buy them in any local hardware store. These traps attract bugs which then get stuck in glue. For silverfish baits ,you can use moist cotton and starchy food items to attrack these pesky insects.
Why should you stop a silverfish infestation?
You should act fast when it comes to taking care of silverfish infestations. These insects reproduce very quickly and are harder to exterminate than most people believe. If you don’t treat the infestation quickly, they will cause damage to your home and make it much expensive to get rid of them. Masters Pest Control Sydney can help you get rid of these insects using a combination of natural methods and safe chemical pest control treatments.

What makes them dangerous?
Termites are a severe problem because they can cause damage both in and around your home. They are known to be one of the most destructive insect pests globally, and many homes and business have been destroyed by them over the years, causing significant financial losses to their owners.
We all know that termites will eat anything made from wood and destroy everything around. There may be a chance that you have termite in your home. If you find the sign of termite around your living area, act immediately to stop them before any further destroys occur.
What are the effective treatments?
However, never execute the treatment yourself by spraying insecticide. This method may work for other different pests, but termite. Termite treatment normally requires a professional plan as it is a long process and needs many efforts from both you and the pest controller. If you find the signs of termites around your house, leave them as they contact a pest controller. If you use insecticide on them, they will retreat to their home, and it will get more difficult for the later treatment. When the pest controller comes in, they will inspect to find out the location of the nest and identify the correct eradication method.
A hollow sound when you tap on your door? Check. Mud tubes trailing down the side of your wall? Check. These are two major red flags of serious termite damage and activity in your home. Reach out to professionals such as the team behind Masters Pest Control Sydney for a quick solution.
Following a termite inspection, exterminators devise a plan to remove these wood-eating insects effectively. There are numerous methods targeted towards termite control, each depending on how pervasive the problem is.
One such method is baiting. Constructed from wood, cardboard and any other material containing cellulose, these baits are soaked in pesticide. When termites eat the baits, they can carry toxic particles and transfer them to their nests. This is usually enough to poison the entire colony.
Another way to take control of a termite infestation is using repellents. Concocted from substances that are poisonous to termites, repellents discourage them from infiltrating specific areas and making more colonies in the inner walls of your house. Acting as a foolproof termite barrier, repellents can stop termites in their tracks.
The use of termiticides is yet another method that professional exterminators swear by. Termiticides such as Termidor and Premise are the most popular products used by established companies. Ideal for extremely infested areas, termiticides kill termites and leave no survivors. Hundreds of gallons can be pumped into the nests to kill eggs before they can even hatch to eliminate termites.
Methods for protection and provention
Physical barriers include those that are made of stainless steel mesh or sand and basaltic particles. These are wide sheets that are layered underneath the slab of your house. This type of barrier can also be laid around the perimeter of the slab and pipe penetrations. It is all based on your property’s needs.
Typically, physical barriers are made to isolate the pre-existing termite colony. The termite barrier provides termite protection from further attacks as it reduces entry points to a designated termite inspection zone. Physical termite barriers are commonly used for termite protection and termite control purposes for new construction projects.
On the other hand, chemical barriers are, as the name suggests, made with active ingredients. These can be anything from plastic barriers that are infused with termiticide or soil treatments. The formula works to kill termites until the entire colony is wiped out. Despite being lethal to termites, this type of barrier is designed to be safe around humans and animal.

Commercial Cockroach Killer
Removing contamination and pest infestations
Masters Pest Control has exterminated cockroaches all around the south-western business parks. In our experience, we have found that a proven method of protection against a roach infestation is removing all possible sources of water for these bugs. Complete any plumbing modifications, and don’t think twice if any leaking pipes or taps need repair. We come across a surprisingly large number of homes whose cockroach infestation problem could easily be prevented by fixing leaking plumbing. This is the perfect and most logical way to start your pest removal campaign.
Cockroaches are nasty pests. This is why cockroach control is a specialty of Masters Pest Control Sydney. As with most household pests, cockroaches need food and water to survive. These insects thrive in dark and damp places and are most active as the night falls. You would most often see them in your kitchen or bathroom, especially after the lights have been turned off for quite some time. Be careful not to leave food on the table and clean the area to eliminate food particles that could attract them.
But why is it that you can’t seem to get rid of cockroaches despite tidying up your space? The truth is that proper sanitation is not enough to remedy the situation. While having a can of bug spray is handy, it does not solve the root of the problem. Aside from being resistant to household insecticides, they reproduce in short cycles and significant numbers.
