Common Pest Control Issues

Living in New Zealand means enjoying the great outdoors, no matter where in the luscious landscape you reside. For home owners in Ahuriri and throughout the Napier area, you’ll surely take every opportunity to throw your windows open, taking in the cool breeze and keeping your home fresh.

Unfortunately, an open window is also an open invitation to flying insects, and you’ll want to take proper precautions to ensure that your guests aren’t unwelcome pests. Among others, consider hiring a professional pest control treatment team to save your property from the following winged contagions:


Though he doesn’t bite, the common housefly is a global pestilence to all who suffer his existence. Capable of transmitting illness not just on their body but in their saliva and faeces, houseflies are considered vectors of disease, and have been linked to outbreaks of cholera, typhoid, bacterial dysentery, and salmonellosis. While our part of the world may not suffer such epidemics, New Zealand’s pristine weather is equally attractive to fruit, moth, and blow flies – all of which are a nuisance better left treated than tolerated. (Did you know, flies regurgitate saliva to aid in digestion when they land – including on your food! Yuck!)


A reviled pest at best, Australia and New Zealand are home to over 400 different species of cockroaches. While many reside far from human sight, urban areas are especially prone to a variety of these horrid critters. Nearly impossible to eradicate without proper fumigation techniques, the first sign of a cockroach in your home or business is often an indication that an infestation is well under way. Rather than suffer exacerbating the invasion, entrust the safety of your home to the prompt and professional treatment of an expert pest control team.
