Pest Control, Removal And Extermination In Ringwood.

Ringwood is a suburb in Melbourne, Australia. It has many parks and reserves that, of course, make the region a great place to live in. As great as these public areas are, they, unfortunately, make the region very vulnerable to infestations of different pests, necessitating the full range of pest control in order to keep the critters at bay.

Why Hire A Professional?

You may be asking yourself, why do I need to hire an expert or professional to solve my pest problems. Although there is a host of home remedies that you can use to exterminate pests from your property, most of them have unpleasant side effects. The harmful chemicals involved in most of their remedies, for example, present a big health risk to you and your family. That is why you should always hire the services of a professional. Other reasons include:

Hiring An Expert Can Save You Time and Energy

A professional exterminator is highly trained to identify the type of pests that infiltrated your property, the extent of the infestation, and the most effective solutions within a few short minutes. That means that a professional pest control company will rid your home or office of pests in a jiffy.

You, on the other hand, may not have the expertise or the time to deal with the problem effectively. You will, therefore, use a lot of energy, waste too much of your precious time, and probably fail to eliminate the problem fully.

It’s Cost Effective

The upfront cost of hiring professional exterminators may appear unreasonably high, but it definitely gives you value for money in the long run. Tell you what; you would rather spend AUD $500 to eliminate a pest problem once and for all than be spending AUD $50 every month on chemicals and traps.

Get Professional Support

On top of having the equipment needed to eradicate the pests fast and effectively, PEST-ZAP pest control experts have tons of important information that you can tap into for your future use. We will readily explain to you how best to keep pests away from your property.

How Much Does Pest Control In Ringwood Cost?

Pest control in Ringwood can cost anywhere between AUD $100 and AUD $1,000: It all depends on the magnitude of the pest removal service. A home with 3 or 4 bedrooms, for example, may cost you about $295 for spiders and roaches. Rodents or possum removal for the same house will cost around $200 to $300. If you want a full building and pest inspection, you might need a budget of $600 or more.

Bottom line: There isn’t a one-size-fits-all cost for pest control in Ringwood. Everything ties down to the service provider, the type of pest, the extent of the infestation, and the size of the property.

Is Pest Control Safe For The Environment?

Yes, it is harmful to people and the environment as a whole. If you live near a stream or water source (a river, ocean, or pond), the pesticide from your home can runoff to the water sources and harm aquatic life in it. The pesticide can also turn into a gas or vapor and when inhaled by humans or animals, it can lead to poisoning. PEST-ZAP also offers offers a GO-GREEN (100% organic remedies) pest management plan option.

To Be Safe From Pesticides, Observe These 5 Precautionary Measures.

  1. Don’t allow your kids/pets anywhere near the pesticide.
  2. Only use chemicals that are approved for use in living areas and be sure to follow the label's instructions and safety warnings to the letter.
  3. Only dispose pesticide containers and any leftovers as per the guidelines specified by your local waste disposal authority.
  4. Never apply excess pesticide for any reason. Only mix as much as you need for a particular problem.
  5. Always store pesticides in their original containers even if you live alone. Cases of kids and pets accidentally consuming chemicals stored in food containers are reported every now and then.

What Types Of Pest Are Most Common In Ringwood?

To help understand the types of pest you could be potentially dealing with in Ringwood. Here is a list of some of these unwanted guests, for you to get familiar with.


These pests thrive in places with an abundant food source. Scientists recently warned that cockroaches are developing a strong resistance to pesticides, which makes it almost impossible to eradicate them on your own.


There are over 2000 spider species in Australia. Some are venomous and aggressive (e.g. Redback, Huntsman, Sydney funnel web, and White-tailed spiders), others are not. Their venom can cause localized pain, muscle and tissue breakdown, paralysis, and extreme swelling in humans. But even when your home is invaded by unaggressive spiders, having them on your window frames, ceiling, and verandahs, among other living spaces, can really ruin your peace of mind.

Bed bugs

These rust brown, flattened, thin, and wingless insects are some of the hardest pests to handle without the intervention of professional pest control services. These bed bug pests are able to hide in narrow cracks, they are extremely fast, and they multiply devastatingly fast.


In whatever you do, never destroy or even attempt to go near a wasp nest without consulting a trusted Ringwood pest removal expert. Wasps are venomous and when they bite, they can cause severe allergies to humans. Also, during autumn through summer, these insects multiply too fast and can even reach a population of 100,000 wasps in a single nest.

Rats And Mice

This goes without saying; rodents are the most disgusting pests. They can easily tarnish your reputation when they show up unexpectedly when your friends are over, or in front of customers in your business premises. They also destroy far more than they eat, put your pets in danger of contracting diseases, and give your property a bad odor.

Norway rats, roof rats, and house mice are the most common rodents in Australia, particularly in Ringwood North and all over the local area.
