Seagull Control Solutions

Are seagulls ruining your building? Are they covering your customers’ cars with droppings? We provide bird control solutions that will last a lifetime.

Fix Your Seagull Problems 

While seagull control is associated with the pest management industry, controlling seagulls is not at all similar to controlling insects or other vertebrate pests. This kind of problem requires specialist intervention, and an in depth knowledge of bird control regulations. We use a wide variety of proven methods to control, deter and manage nuisance seagull problems. We also have a significant amount of experience, having undertaken large commercial programmes in Rotorua and the wider Bay of Plenty.

“Flock Off” Bird Spike System

Our “Flock Off” seagull control systems are perfect for use on any building profile or shape, whether it’s a residential home or commercial/industrial building. It doesn’t cause any damage to your roof or edging either.

On top of this, our system is humane and doesn’t actually physically hurt the seagulls, unlike some other approaches.

We have had many clients over the years approach us after trying these other methods and have been impressed with the long term results from using our “Flock Off” bird spike system.

Our seagull spikes are made of high quality stainless steel (beware of cheap imitations) on a thick plastic polymer backing. They are not designed to harm the seagulls, as they are flexible and bend when light force is applied. This proven design effectively deters seagulls from landing on the ledges.  They are also relatively low profile and barely visible when applied to buildings.

Of course, there are other approaches using bird scaring devices and mechanical deterrents. From our experience however, these do not work in the long term. This is because they can wear out over time, and have limited effectiveness as the birds become familiar with these systems.

Deter Seagulls With Commercial and Residential Application

Some examples of commercial building installations are:

  • Rotorua Central Mall
  • Mitre 10 Rotorua
  • Lakes District Health Board

Ant Control

New Zealand has 40 species of ants, with pest control methods varying depending on the species you are dealing with.

Ants and Insect Control Rotorua

Ants are an irritant when they come into the home looking for food. The most common species in NZ, the Garden Ant, is not thought to carry disease, however it’s impossible to know where the ants were last foraging for food. It is advised therefore to take steps to prevent them entering your home and food cupboards. You can do this by keeping all food in airtight containers and cleaning up all food and drink spills.

Controlling ants can be difficult as they can enter your home or office through even the tiniest cracks in their quest for food and water. Ants can nest almost anywhere: in lawns, walls, stumps, even under house foundations and foot paths.

Don’t ignore the ants around your home or business as an ant can live a relatively long lifetime and depending on the type of ant some can live for over a decade.

While it’s tempting to kill an ant when you spot one, it is more important to track that one ant back to the nest. It will take you right back to the Queen(s) and larvae, so you can take them all out at once. Most DIY ant control products are short-term as they will only kill the ants you see. Plus, many home remedies don’t account for the fact that different kinds of ant infestations require different treatments.

It is true that sprays, poisons and other DIY ant control products can help to deal with smaller ant problems. However, it is advised to get professional pest control services to effectively deal with larger, multiple or tropical ant infestations. Our solutions are much more effective, as we can knock out the nest once and for all.

Flea Infestation Removal

Fleas & flea infestations can be difficult to get rid of with off-the-shelf solutions.

Fleas & Flea Infestations

Fleas are a common problem in New Zealand homes, especially for cat or dog owners. They have the possibility to transmit disease, however flea bites are the most common concern to people and pets.

Fleas can also be a problem when moving in to a new home, as the cocoons can remain dormant for two years or more before becoming active again. It is common for infestations to be awoken by the vibration of footsteps when people move in. They can move around fairly quickly as well, able to jump distances up to 200 times their body length. This is the equivalent of an adult human jumping 400 metres!

Flea Treatment for the Home

Adult fleas often find their way into your home on pets, but flea eggs, larvae, and pupae largely live and develop in the pet’s environment – your home.  Effective flea control means treating your home, as well as the fleas on your pet.  We understand the flea life-cycle and are uniquely qualified to remove these small pests from your home. Not only that, we ensure that the next generation of fleas does not develop.

Borer and Termite Removal

Borer damage can have long lasting effects, with the strength and value of your property at jeopardy – don’t leave it any longer.

Termite and Borer Removal

Termites and Borer can weaken timber, so can threaten the structural integrity of your home or workplace over time.

Borer Control

There are 7 species of borer in NZ with the most common being the Common House Borer. Small holes (2-4mm) on the surface of timber and piles of fine sawdust are sure signs that you may have borer in the furniture or timber of your home.

Borer attacks untreated and damp timber and treating infested areas is often easier said than done. Wood must be stripped and treated directly to completely remove the pest. This is because airborne treatments only kill the flying adult insects and will not remove the larvae inside the timber.

Termite Control

Termites live in large colonies ranging into the thousands. These invasive species damage wood, so they can pose a significant threat to New Zealand timber, homes and economy.

In order to identify a termite infestation, we perform inspections and may employ monitoring stations. After highly active areas are located, we utilise a range of methods including bait stations and liquid solutions to address problem areas and eradicate nests.  We also provide recommendations for reducing possible termite food sources such as woodpiles and addressing moisture sources.
