Bug Free Homes
Our bug-free teams have been servicing Sydney and its surrounding suburbs for decades. We know exactly how to handle bug infesting Sydney homes.
Sydney has structures and houses built in the 1950s and 1960s. This means that keeping your home or commercial property bug-free may not be as simple since in some cases, a bug infestation may be caused by neighbouring buildings or homes that may be badly infested. At Masters Pest Control Sydney, we also inspect the surrounding areas and provide the right strategy to stop any pest infestations once and for all.

Prevent common bugs in Sydney
- Clean or remove damp areas that may become a breeding ground for bugs.
- Check if you have any leaking pipes and get them fixed.
- Fix drainage around your property to ensure water diverts away from the property and not enter the sub-floor.
- Increase the flow of air going to the sub-floor, putting additional vent. Air that passes beneath the property is a great way to dry the sub-floor.
- Make sure no plants or large trees are leaning towards the perimeter of your home.
- Don’t leave wood and old branches on the ground. Remember, termites use moist wood as a breeding ground. Also, keeping your yard clean will help reduce the chances of termites and spiders entering your property.
- If you have good passive vents and still have a damp sub-floor, you can install a motorised sub-floor ventilation system. (Note: We have done several building ventilation works, and they work incredibly well to prevent termites. Consult our team for advice.)
If you suspect the appearance of termites around your house, it is strongly recommended that you should not ignore the sign and take immediate action. The longer you delay taking action, the more destruction termite may cause to your house structure. Termites are one of the biggest threats to properties in Australia. Experts suggest that 2 in 3 homes are exposed to a termite issue. Termites cost Australians an average of $1.5 Billion in property damage repair and removal every year. If you haven't had your property damaged due to termites, then you might need to take steps to ensure it never does happen.
The first thing you should do is to have a bug expert do an inspection. A termite inspection is a visual inspection of all the accessible areas of your property to determine any present activity from timber destroying bugs or organisms. At Masters Pest Control Sydney, our inspection process covers the whole building, inside and out and includes any basements and areas of the crawlspace, if any exist on the property.
The traditional way of the termite inspection is a visual inspection. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to detect termites using only a visual inspection of the location. Our bug expert will use a thermal detection process as a new step in the business. This is a really innovative way of checking whether or not you have been attacked by termites and is deservedly getting more and more attention now. Of course, proper inspection is required, especially when looking into new homes that you think of purchasing or maintaining your current home not to get infested. The thing that sets thermal detection apart from the traditional form of inspection is that it gives the pest controller the ability to spot a termite problem before any signs visible with the naked eye formed.
- Look at reviews and recommendations from other satisfied customers. Most of our clients come from referrals from our previous customers. We do such good work that a handful will regularly leave comments and reviews for us. We pride ourselves on ensuring professional, quality service.
- Check if they use child and pet safe pest control. Professionals use different bug control solutions to fight cockroaches, rats, spiders, ants, termites, and more. We assure you that our pest control methods are child and pet-friendly. In addition, we ensure that there is no residual effect that may cause any negative effect on the environment.
- Review the terms & conditions and look for a bug control guarantee. We guarantee to provide a unique solution that removes the need for a follow-up bug treatment. Take note that any follow-up treatments can be costly.
Protect your home
To protect your property away from termite, you should regularly inspect your home and always try to ensure no rotting wood, mud tubes, or any visible termite presence around your home. Although at the time, getting rid of rotting wood may seem a bit annoying, when you think about the cause you are doing it for, you will gladly give some of your time to get it away from your home.
Stagnant water and moisture are major sources of food for termites, so make sure that you have dried all moisture and diverted away from any water from your household through the gutters to prevent the growth of termites. Like all other living beings, Termites cannot survive without water, so they have no ground to grow if you cut down the sources.
Make sure that there is no firewood or lumber stacked near your home. Some properties use wood as a means of staying warm during the winter, and although this is a great idea sometimes, it can backfire, especially if the woods have moisture on them. Ensure that you keep all the firewood at a safe distance from your home to ensure no termite infestations are coming to you soon.
You can also remove all of the old building wood, discarded fencing or ground stakes that may be located around your house. They are unusable anymore and can also trigger a termite infestation, so there is absolutely no point in still keeping them there.
Signs Your Home Needs a Termite Inspection
The activity in your area
When buying a home, there are many factors and things to look out for, and one of those is the TIP index. The TIP index is short for the Termite Infestation Probability Zone index measured by the Australian Forestry Commission to help assess the termite activity of a specific area. If you are buying a home or live in an area where the TIP is high, then you need to take measures to ensure that your house is inspected periodically to prevent any damage that might be done due to termites.
Your home is made of wood.
One of the impossible things to do is to protect a property from termites. That's near next to impossible. If you are familiar with termites, then you are probably aware of the fact that, in most cases, they wouldn't care about how the exterior of the house looks. This is because sometimes, termites burrow through the soil and travel beneath the surface of the soil. This means that they can easily avoid the wooden poisoned parts of your home's structure, enter inside your property and start attacking the inside beams.
Your neighbours recently hired a bug control expert.
One clear sign that shows you that termite control in Sydney might be due is when such an inspection happens at your neighbour's place. The reason you should care is that once the neighbour contacts a termite bug control company in Sydney, the termites are likely to migrate in search of safer food sources and guess where they might end up? Yes, your guess is as good as mine.
You found a termite colony nearby.
Termites behave more or less like an army. So if you see a termite colony close to your home, then it's a sign that you have to take action. The most common type of termite species found in Sydney is the West Indian dry wood Termite which means that a single colony can contain well up to a million HUNGRY termites vying to eat up your property. Once you find a colony-forming anywhere near your property, you should give Masters Pest Control Sydney a call.
You found signs of termite infestation.
Apart from colonies, another sign that an inspection might be due is a visible sign of termite activity. If you see a mud tunnel or damaged wood and even swarmers, it's a telltale sign that you should call a Termite Control contractor immediately. One other important thing for you to know is that termites sometimes build mud tubes beneath the soil surface, and you sometimes need to be on the lookout for such tunnels.
Identify Any Termite Infestation
Termites eat away timber by consuming them from the inside out. Once they are done, what's left behind is just a thin veneer of timber or paint. So if you knock on a wooden area in your home and hear a hollow sound, that is a clear sign of termite damage.
Throughout the consumption activity of termites, they construct mud tunnels to trap heat and moisture. This allows them to create the perfect environment to protect their food source and safely travel to and fro. Usually, the mud can be seen behind plasterboards, brick foundations and architraves of doors. Unfortunately, these mud tubes can also cause timber to swell, making the fit of a window or door too tight. If you find it hard to open a door or close a window, this could likely affect termite damage.
As termites continue to munch on timber, the structural integrity of the material is degraded. If you look closer, you'll spot cracks in door jams and cornices. You will start feeling that the flooring beneath you has softened, and you'll notice that your vacuum goes through the skirting board.

1. Sawdust Residue
This typical sign your property may have termites or carpenter ants. The residue is usually found near timber structures and materials. If you see this, please inspect further and enquire about bug control services.
2. Cracks & Marks
Many bugs enjoy devouring your property. If they don’t eat it, they will most likely find another way to destroy it. As a result, mysterious damages to your property may start appearing – from cracks in the walls to holes in the roof, window screens and fences. In addition, the bugs enjoy leaving marks on the objects around your house and using them for food and nesting materials. Call Masters Pest Control for fumigation.
Your little bugs are gracious enough to leave behind some gifts for you to clean up. Their droppings, eggs, bloodstains and body parts, to be precise. If you see these remnants, then please contact Masters Pest Control immediately before they start to produce a nasty odour.
Have you noticed little nests? Or perhaps webbings that your not-so-friendly spider family live on. These little home could be anywhere! And if left untreated can grow bigger and bigger until it’s a major issue. One nest could mean there are three others around the house. Call Masters Pest Control for a pest inspection.
Rat Pest Control
Rodents, Rats and Mites
There is no doubt that rodents are the pests that any of us want to get rid of because they cause damage to our property and our health as rodents carry parasites known as rodent mites. Rodent mites are a less common problem for humans than bird mites and tend to be connected more frequently with industrial buildings or maybe warehouses than non-commercial premises.
Rodent mites have a lifecycle that lasts around two weeks. Adult and immature stages of rodent mites use rodents as the source of their food. If the rodent that acts as a host is killed or removed, the adult rodent mites left in the nest or on the dead host will leave the location and search for a new host. Rodent mites can go without a blood meal for nearly two weeks, and during that time, they can contact humans. While they cannot feed on us to complete their life cycle, they will still bite us.
Even though there are no diseases transmitted to human through the bites, these bite marks still cause irritated and itchy feeling to our skin. Many ways can relieve the itch. However, no method can completely remove the irritation.
Since naked eyes cannot see all mites, it is difficult to identify whether rodent mites bite you. Hence, the best way is to get help from a professional pest controller. The pest controllers will do an inspection and create a treatment plan based on the specific situation.
Scabies mites habitat
The human scabies mite is the only arthropod in Australia known to infest human skin and cause a clinical syndrome. This mite species are found worldwide and only parasitises humans. It lives under the skin and causes a condition that is known as scabies. The scabies mites dig burrows to get under the skin and make tunnels through the upper layers of the skin using an enzyme that dissolves human skin.
Most scabies infestation is hard to diagnose in their early stages because as long as one month is needed for noticeable symptoms to develop. First symptoms occur only after the host has been sensitised and has developed an allergic reaction to their faeces, skin moults and saliva or the fluids present in the tunnels. The presence of scabies mites needs to be confirmed by a general practitioner before any treatment can begin.
You can mow your lawn and remove weeds regularly to prevent bringing outdoor mites indoor. You can also keep leaf litter at a fair distance from your house and keep your pets clean. These devices will also help you to reduce the occurrence of mites.
Sydney Pest Disease Carriers
Rats and Rodents
Rats are disease carriers. Rats are known for carrying many diseases, and some among them can badly affect human health. One disease coming from rats that threaten human health is the plague. This disease actually did cause an epidemic called Black Death decades ago.
Rodents are not ideal to have in our living areas due to their eating habits. Not only do they destroy food containers, but they also contaminate our food by leaving their excrement, urine and hair.
Rats cause physical damage. As rodents teeth keep growing constantly, they need to constantly chew or gnaw to stop them from growing too long. Their gnawing thus will cause physical damage to your furniture and equipment.
Natural Preventative Control
Preventive Bug Free Control
From cockroaches in the kitchen to spiders in the backyard, bugs can appear anywhere. To make matters worse, some bugs tend to multiply when summertime rolls around. In Sydney, there are so many incidents of insect invasion that locals have experienced in one way or another. As a result, households in the area have battled long and hard to keep creepy crawlers away.
Prevention is your best defence when dealing with bug problems. Boost your protection against vermin infestation by taking the appropriate steps toward bugs from the get-go. Masters Pest Control Sydney will guide you through the most basic steps towards bug prevention.
Time to Go All Natural
A few organic pest control measures can keep these creatures out of your house for good. To start, mix three parts fabric softener with two parts water and spray the mixture along floors and doors to deter cockroaches. We also suggest using a 50/50 solution made of vinegar and water to clean countertops and dining tables. This is effective in erasing the scent trails ants use to navigate their way around your food sources.
In addition, you can make your own natural rat deterrent using a half cup of water and 40 drops of peppermint oil. Spray the solution along the floor to stop rats in their tracks. You can also soak cotton balls with the solution and place them near various entry points in your house.
At our company, we do away with using harsh chemicals. Call us on 02 8007 4666, and we can give you a detailed guide in making your own natural bug sprays and repellents. If you have plants, we will advise you on certain species that effectively keep pests away.

Disease Carrying Bugs
People who have businesses in Sydney seem to be quite accustomed to having their homes infiltrated by bugs every season. Masters Pest Control Sydney has done exterminations all over the Sydney commercial business areas and is familiar with the common bugs that lurk around populated places. These can be anything from parasitic bugs to disease-spreading vermin. When you live in an area that boasts a warm climate for about six months every year, this scenario seems inevitable. Pests manage to sneak their way indoors, living off your resources right under your nose. The worst part is that you only find out until the damage is done. And then it's on to the next step, removal. But did you know that you can avoid all of the hassles if you take some time to do a few things in your day-to-day life?
Some Daily Commercial DIY Tips
By investing just a bit of time, you can skip the stressful ordeal of going through hell and back to eliminate bugs from your home. Prevent your living space from becoming a hotspot for these hellish creatures by properly storing and sealing food at all times. Ensure to wipe countertops, tables and all other surfaces clean to get rid of odours and particles as these attract pests. Dispose of your trash completely and regularly as well.
Remember to exercise caution all the time, particularly during the summer months, as this is the period when troublesome bugs thrive the most. But that does not mean you should take it easy in the middle of winter either. Common household pests such as rats, mice and cockroaches are still very active in the colder season.
