With a German cockroach treatment the technician will firstly inspect your premises to see the threshold of German cockroaches which are in your premises.  The technician will then do a skirting board spray and place gel in appropriate places such as cupboard door hinges, microwave, fridges/freezers, washing machines and other electrical appliances.


For German cockroach treatments a Redline Pest Control customer service agent will ask you what rooms you are seeing the German cockroaches in and how many you are roughly seeing each day. The customer service agent will then determine the level of infestation by your answers and will recommend which treatment is suited to your needs.

With rodent treatments we will ask you where you are experiencing the issue whether it will be internal, external or both. We will also ask you what times are you hearing the noise if you are hearing noises in roof void as this very well could be a possum. Rodents love their run paths and will often dart from place to place in a blink of an eye.


Internal Areas:


Bait will be placed in roof void if you are hearing noises, bait will be placed in cardboard bait stations and will be placed strategically behind furniture, fridges, washing machines, dryers and any other places that rodents will frequent.


External Areas:


When we bait outside for rodents we always try to look for places that the bait in cardboard bait stations can be strategically placed. If there is no place that the bait can be placed we will advise you that you will need to purchase lockable bait stations which is yours to keep and the best thing is they are reusable and all you need to do if you have a rodent issue again is to replenish the lockable bait station.

It has been reported yesterday that scientist from the Australian National University has stumbled upon a new species of the Funnel-Web Spider in Jervis Bay NSW.


What is remarkable is that the 5 cm female Funnel-Web Spider is roughly 25 to 30 years old and was found burrowed in a rotting log.

Dead carcasses and the blow fly!

pest pic


Monday I had a frantic call from a concerned client saying there was an unusual amount of blow flies swarming in her home and she didn’t know where they were coming from.


I asked her the usual questions like can she smell something decaying, was there any meat left out, does she have pets as maybe it is the food that they might not of eaten, to check to see if there was any animals on her property that may of passed. Nothing I asked was occurring so I asked one of our technicians to do an emergency job to investigate why this customer has blow flies in her home.


John arrived at the client’s home in Parramatta and searched the lawns, subfloor, and interior and made his way up to the roof void where he instantly smelled a decaying matter. Upon further investigations of the roof void he had found dead rodents in the roof void.


John removed two dead rodents but was unable to get the third rodent as it had slipped into the wall cavity. John advised the customer that he was putting the odour eliminating bag in the roof void and that it will suck up any bad smells that was in the roof void.


Our client had used a different pest controller to do a rodent treatment and when she had tried to call that pest controller he no longer had his phone in service.


Usually when pest controllers bait for rodents they will use bait that has a thinning agent in it so it coagulates the blood stopping it from releasing a bad smell.


Unfortunately for our client the bait that was used was a stock standard bait that you could get from the local hardware house which doesn’t have this thinning agent in it.


Needless to say our client was so happy that the blow flies have since disappeared and that we have found the source of the issue.

Cockroaches, Rodents and Flies can cause contamination by urinating and pooping over utensils, bench tops, containers and food which has been left out.  Unfortunately these pests carry a lot of harmful bacteria such as streptococcus virus, Staphylococcus Salmonella and streptococcus virus. Would you put your family’s health or life on the line? I know that I certainly wouldn’t put my family’s life on the line.


Bees and wasps may be great from an ecological point of view but what dangers can they bring when they have set up their hives in or around your home. For most of a simple bee or wasps sting will only cause small irritation but for others this could very will send them to the emergency department or even worse cause death.


Now is the time to prune those trees and bushy areas, clean up around the kiddies play equipment and keep the lawns cut short.


Why do we always advise customers to keep their lawns short and their yards neat and tidy?

Pest which are easily undetected cause can serious harm to you or your loved ones.
