Sydney Pest Control and Bee Removal

FAQs

As avid, trained beekeepers with the Beekeepers Association of NSW we catch bee swarms as our first and only option for eradicating a bee pest problem. We never spray (destroy) bee swarms and treat them with the respect they deserve as essential members of our ecosystem. See our Ethical Bee Removal service for details: (insert link to page)

No, we use specially formulated gels inside kitchen cupboards and apply a dusting treatment in cracks and crevices where necessary. We do request that you put away any utensils and cover any food left out in the open to avoid contact with these items.

No, all chemicals we use are safe for use on and around plants. However, we do not apply any chemicals near vegetable gardens or fruit trees, or where bees may collect pollen to make honey. We are bee-friendly in every possible way and our preference is not to apply chemicals on flowering plants. See our Ethical Bee Removal service for details: (insert link to page)

This largely depends on the type of pest and the degree of infestation. Generally, most will start to decline in numbers within 2-3 weeks. However, where treatment is reliant on using baits, this may take longer to allow the bait to make its way through an entire colony.

We only use pesticides derived from natural products such as pyrethrin which is produced by the flowers of the Chrysanthemum plant. Prior to any treatment, we evaluate your unique situation and advise any precautionary measures necessary to avoid risk to you, your family, pets and colleagues. We can also recommend non-chemical methods to ensure the condition of your site is not conducive to attracting pests in the first place.

Only chemicals approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) are used for any treatment. These chemicals undergo many years of vigorous scientific testing before they can be used in domestic or commercial situations. Upon request, our technician can provide Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on each chemical for peace of mind.
