  1. Termites
  2. Ants 
  3. Spiders

Its proximity to large areas of bushland and forest makes Shailer Park a hotspot of termite activity. Warm, humid conditions create the ideal habitat, meaning people’s homes are constantly at risk. Annual termite inspections are the most effective way to keep your home safe from termite attack. 

Ants often make their presence felt in the spring and summer months, causing a nuisance indoors and outside. Very few homes will escape them! However, our general ant treatments are designed to be used against a wide range ants, including those in the Shailer Park area. For tricky ant problems, a specialist ant treatment from AllPro Pest Control can provide a long-lasting solution.

Homeowners whose properties are close to Kimberley Forest Park may find that spiders are an issue. Spider problems are easily resolved by having a general pest treatment once a year, usually in spring.  

Of course, while these might be the 3 key pests, cockroaches are problem for everyone – no matter where they are!

Termite Inspections and Termite Treatments - Shailer Park

With termites capable of causing significant damage to a property in just 6 months, taking steps to prevent termite entry is essential for any homeowner. With plenty of food sources in the nearby forests and bushland, Shailer Park residents should be aware of the significant risk posed by termites.

Having your home inspected for termite activity at least once a year is the minimum requirement. However, to really protect your home you need to install a termite management system. A number of termite treatment options are available, including liquid soil treatments that are injected into the soil around the home or termite baits that are installed in secure bait stations.  

For those living in the highest risk areas, especially those close to bushland, having a termite inspection twice yearly is strongly recommended.
