Crawling Insects & Pests


Foraging worker ants cause a nuisance as they travel widely in search of food, following well-defined trails and clustering around the food source. They are attracted to sweet or fatty substances in kitchens, pantries, storerooms and warehouses. In hospitals they have been found feeding on septic dressings, soiled linen and excrement. They are obviously an unpleasant sight in food areas and may damage or taint food intended for human consumption.

Ants are the most prolific and successful group of insects. Their nests can be found almost anywhere and often only with the help of expert pest control technicians.

Bed Bugs

Bed Bug infestations are notoriously difficult to beat, without the careful inspection and treatment by a professional pest control technician, followed by a thorough, comprehensive treatment of all infested and adjoining areas.

Infestations are often detected by the welts and irritation caused by the bites, and the fecal smears and blood spots visible on pillowcases, sheets and mattresses. Typical hiding places are in the tufts, folds and seams of mattresses, and cracks in the box springs and bed frame. Heavier infestations often spread to behind baseboards, window and door casings, pictures, electrical switch plates, loose wallpaper, and in furniture upholstery and the pleats of drapes.

If you suspect you have a bed bug problem, please call us today.

Cockroaches generally don’t like light and if found in the home will be more common at night, usually darting away when you enter the room. If a large infestation is in the home, there is often a distinct odour. Droppings and vomit marks are normally visible on cupboards and hinges inside cupboards and drawers. The Australian cockroach is a very good flyer but mostly during warmer weather and prefers warmer climates, however it can survive indoors during colder weather as long as water is available, so warm, moist conditions are ideal.

They’re prolific breeders and if you see the signs, a thorough pest treatment needs to be done before the problem gets worse.

Fleas are an annoying insect that feed on the blood from animals including humans in their adult form. There are over 70 species in Australia but the most common are the cat and dog fleas. Most of their life cycle actually occurs off the pet, and they can lie dormant in their cocoons for several months waiting for any vibrations that may stir them into activity. It’s a common misperception that grass fleas or sand fleas are a different species. These fleas are just fleas that have been deposited onto the ground by the pet. If there are five on your pet there are usually many more out in the yard.

The adult flea can survive for over four months without a single blood feed and successful eradication often involves a treatment by a qualified pest technician.

Silverfish have a long slender body, flattened and normally 13-25mm, giving them a fish like appearance. They completely lack wings and have two antennae which move side to side like a fish, cannot climb smooth surfaces and are nocturnal. They can typically live for two to four years, prefering warmer temperatures and will die in heat over 40 degrees.

When indoors they can be found in roof and wall cavities, subfloors and in cupboards. They will eat foods like rolled oats, sugar, synthetic fibres. They can go for long periods of time without food, and signs of feeding are not obvious. They are fast and agile insects and this sometimes contributes to their downfall, as they often become trapped in bathtubs.

The formidable appearance and size of spiders makes them the most feared of all the creepy crawlies. However most spiders are harmless and avoid people. Among the most common found in Australia are the:
- Red Back
- Black House Spider
- Huntsman
- Funnel Web
- White Tail
- Daddy Long Legs.

You can read about each of these in more detail below to help identify them.

Ticks are common in many parts of Myanmar and can even be found around the garden. They have mouthpiece like a beak and a body the shape of a pear, ranging is size from 1.2mm as larvae to 4mm as adults. Due to their small size they can be difficult to see until engorged by blood feeding.

They require a host to feed, which can often mean the family dog or cat. Ticks usually do not climb higher than around 50cm in the vegetation and there is no evidence to suggest that they fall out of trees. If you live in a Tick prone area, keeping the garden free of dead vegetation and the lawn mown short will reduce the likelihood of an infestation, with regular professional pest control treatments.

Read more about the dangers of ticks.

Pantry Pests

Pantry moths, such as the Indian meal moth are attracted to foodstuff as a place to lay eggs and feed, including dry goods, grains, nuts, flours, spices, and chocolate. The extent of moth damage depends on the degree of infestation. A large population in the house can be quite costly, where large amounts of food may need to be thrown away due to contamination from pantry moth webbing, cocoons, and droppings.

Often the first signs of pantry moths are too late to avoid contamination. Regular inspections and baits are an effective method of prevention.

We were really impressed by the service provided by Competitive Pest Services. We had a vile slug problem in our home. Slugs can be extremely dangerous (esp with babies crawling) as they can carry a deadly parasite Rat Lung Worm - CPS were one of the only pest companies I found to provide a slug service, understand the risks of rat lung worm and had even written an article about it. BUT... it didn't end there - we were impressed with everything aspect of their service - from the articles I found on website on rat lung worm and slugs, to great contemporary website interface, prompt customer service including booking confirmation emails and sms appointment reminders, polite phone manner, and of course the pest inspector Andrew. Also - amazing value for money with a winter deal they had going for rat treatment as well. It's the sort of service you'd never expect from a trade company. Highly recommended. read more

Very happy with this company. I had a serious problem with ticks in the garden. I have had no tick bites since they treated it 4 months ago. They dealt with it very punctually, efficiently and were very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them to anybody and will be using them again. My neighbours are all intending to use them.I used them as I found them when looking for pest controls and they were one of the few that mentioned ticks and I also loved their quirky website.. read more

We were unlucky to find ourselves in a terrible situation when a visiting family member introduced bed bugs to our home and to complicate things even further, my wife was also 8 months pregnant.When we discovered the bug, my wife went into a frenzy of panic as we are aware the difficulties of managing bedbugs. She rang many pest control companies that day, however none offered service even close to Competitive Pest Control’s standard. They were just so far above the standard of the previous companies we had contacted.It started by the amazing representative on the phone who diffused my wife’s panic and distress by demonstrating empathy and actively listening to every concern that she had. Additionally, she was extremely knowledgeable and she explained everything thoroughly, particularly relating to the confusion between the huge price differences and the different types of treatments that we had been quoted throughout the day. We decided to go with Competitive Pest Control simply based on this excellent service, however it didn’t stop there. Once we stated we were interested in going ahead, she immediately referred us to the General Manager, Matt due to the fact that my wife was so heavily pregnant. Matt decided that he would cancel his golf game that day and drive to Sydney (at least 2 hours+) and handle this one himself. We are so thankful that Matt gave up his golf day to address our problem. He turned up on time (always a bonus for any at-home services) and is one of the nicest men you’ll ever meet. He showed genuine concern for my wife and our situation and I knew at that point, we had chosen the right company.Matt was so incredibly thorough in his inspection, he went into every single nook and cranny in the house, every seam in every piece of fabric and kept me completely informed of everything he was doing. He was at our home for many hours and did not stop until he was absolutely satisfied that he had addressed our bedbug issue.He carefully explained post treatment instructions and has since followed up twice to ensure we are 100% satisfied.I cannot speak highly enough of Matt and Competitive Pest Control team.read more

I am very happy with the service provided by Competitive Pest Services. We initially had a comprehensive pest treatment for moths, ants and cockroaches, which was great. The moths, however, proved to be persistent, returning within a few weeks. One of the technicians, Allan, came back to see what more could be done. He was wonderful; a true expert. He took the time to get to the bottom of the issue, and great care to ensure all steps were taken to make certain the case was fully resolved to our satisfaction. Kayleigh in the office was also very helpful and responsive. I couldn’t recommend Competitive Pest Services more highly. Ask for Allan, he was brilliant!read more

We’ve noticed an almost immediate impact after less than a week. Highly recommend. Thank you CPS.read more

Adam went above and beyond. He was punctual, polite and took the time to do a thorough job. He noticed that we had a couple of wasp nests hidden, and even got rid of those for us.Super happy with the service and we will be happy to recommend CPS to friends and family going forward.read more
