Spider Control in Murray Bridge

Pest Services


Spiders play an important part in nature’s ecosystem, feeding on other insects and creatures we might call pests. But while spiders can be useful for keeping pests out of your garden or home, this helpfulness turns to nuisance when you start finding spiders inside your home.

Many species of spiders love the nooks and crannies in your house. But once those areas fill up, they may start to venture into the more visible areas, and that’s where you may come across them.

Spider control is important to prevent these creatures from ever taking up residence in your home in the first place.

Get rid of spiders inside and around your home

Terminix Pest & Weed Control Pty Ltd understands the need and want to keep spiders where they are supposed to be—outside. To control spider populations and reduce the likelihood of them entering your home, we apply a liquid insecticide treatment to areas like along the perimeter of your house, inside sheds, under furniture and in the cracks and crevices of your home.

We can also apply insecticidal dust to the roof and subfloor voids to help flush spiders out from these areas.

leave spider removal to the professionals 

Terminix Pest & Weed Control Pty Ltd would also like to remind you that while spiders are small and not usually harmful to humans, certain species can have very painful and, in some cases, deadly bites. It’s better to have a professional come perform spider control for your home than to risk getting bit yourself.


There are over 1300 ant species throughout Australia, but only several that pose a pest problem to our homes and family. These problems can include contaminating food when they are foraging and feeding in our kitchens and pantry’s. Or just being a nuisance as they trail and build nests along our paths and in our gardens.

What many people do not realise is that ants are also notorious for causing electrical shortage and damage to electrical wiring and appliances as they like to congregate in and around these places. This can be a very expensive even dangerous problem to have in your home.

how do we control ants?

The first step to controlling Ants is for our experienced technicians to identify the species. Once this has been done the most effective control methods can be used. These include;

European wasps

There are a variety of different wasps that can call our homes or businesses. Unfortunately some wasp species, such as European Wasps can be deadly. The European wasps are generally located in vents or in the garden and have a nasty sting.

Other Wasp species

Other wasp species, including mud wasps and paper nest wasps, nest on bricks and under the eaves of the home. Never try and destroy the hive as when wasps are provoked they can often attack.

How to control?

Wasp treatments involve treating the wasp nests with insecticide. This should only be done by an experienced Pest Control professional, who has the knowledge and personal protective equipment to ensure the job is done safely.

The Dreaded Cockroach

There are many species of Cockroaches, but some can pose a serious health risk in and around your home. This is due to their indiscriminate feeding from sources such as sewers, drains and garage areas alike, which brings them in contact with diseases.

These diseases can include:

Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures and are therefore rarely seen during the day, unless there is a large infestation so if you are seeing them during the day, you more than likely have a huge problem.

How to control?

Cockroach control starts with the elimination of the infestation through a number of methods. These include;

The humble cockroach is believed to be one of the only creatures that would survive a nuclear attack. Using supermarket roach bombs wont really fix the problem and can be quite dangerous to use if not handled correctly.

Terminix can TERMINATE your roaches giving you peace of mind that the problem has been eliminated.


Fleas are a nuisance pest that are brought into our households by pets, mainly cats and dogs. Their bites can be an annoyance to not just our pets, but also to humans as some people can have nasty reactions which result in welts and rashes. On top of this fleas are also carriers of vector diseases such as bubonic plague.

how to control?

To control fleas the first step is to establish the cause of the infestation, which could be by neighbouring animals passing through the area, quite often feral cats.

The next step is to treat all infested areas using liquid insecticides in yard areas and in buildings, and dusting insecticides in void areas such as subfloors. Follow up treatments are recommended to ensure the infestation is eliminated.


Bees are an integral part of nature and the source of life for many living creatures, but unfortunately they become a pest when they decide to infest vents, chimneys and any other crack or crevices around our homes.


A bee’s sting is not only painful, but it can also be deadly for some people. Even if you have been stung before with no real side effects other than a little pain and swelling, you can develop an allergic reaction later in life. With this being the case you should not attempt to remove a bee hive on your own. Call in the professionals…

how to control bees?

When removing bees an insecticidal dust is dusted into where the bees have established themselves which will eliminate the hive.

It’s important that after the bee hive has been eliminated, the entry point where the bees have gained access is blocked off. This needs to be done as soon as possible as other bees will smell the honey and try to set up home in the same spot. This may involve fitting vent screens, sealing off chimneys or re-mortaring holes in masonry walls.
