Jim’s Pest Control has been helping Central Coast locals with pest problems since 2011. In this time, we have helped tens of thousands of customers to eliminate pests on their property.
Our clients are at a distinct advantage when using Jim’s. Every one of our pest exterminator technicians is trained in all types of pest control. This allows us to identify pest problems which our client maybe unaware of.
For instance, one of our techs was called out to perform a live bee removal. He removed the swarm alive successfully, but, because some bees had managed to find their way inside, he had to go in to treat them.
On his way in, he noticed some mud leads on a skirting board. From his training he knew it was likely to be termites.
This discovery was highlighted to the client who was unaware of the hidden danger this represented. After some more investigation by the tech, live termites were found.
If it were not for the fact that the tech was trained and licensed in termites, these subtle signs would have been missed. It would have been devastating for the client if these termites had remained untreated.
Jim’s offers all pest control services
Training our techs in all aspects of pest control is critically important. There is no use sending out someone who can do one service, but not another.
It should not matter what pest problem you have, your technician should be able to fix it. Even if it is an uncommon pest, your tech should still be able to help, or at least be able to call in for support from a senior expert.
This is why Jim’s Pest Control is fast becoming the local experts Central Coast residents rely on.
Spiders give almost everyone an uneasy feeling. They tend to sit in a corner and just stare at you. If disturbed, they can often rush towards you and send you into a panic.
If the truth be known, they are more scared of you. The reason they freeze when spotted is they are watching to see if you are going to come and squish them.
While it may look like they are running towards you, often they are just running to find a safe spot. Unfortunately, you may be in the direct path of the chosen spot.
To most people spiders are just eight-legged, scary beasts and they would prefer them not to be in their home or business.
If that is the case, clients may choose to have a spider treatment done. This involves our tech applying a repellent chemical to the areas they like to frequent. As it is a repellent chemical, they will sense it is there.
If they choose to cross this barrier, it won’t take long and they will be affected by the treatment.
For Jim’s Pest Control Central Coast, it is one of our most popular treatments. Prices start from around $180 depending on what areas need to be treated and size of building.
If the treatment is applied correctly it can keep spiders at bay for 6 to 12 months depending on the site

Pigeon or bird control
Pigeons are becoming a major pest issue on the Central Coast. With everyone installing solar panels to reduce their power bills, it has resulted in a dramatic increase in bird numbers.
The reason for this is that the solar panels installed on roofs are just the right height for pigeons to nest under. It provides shelter from weather and predators. The result has been an explosion in pigeon numbers.
Once a pigeon is born on a roof, their mind will be imprinted that this is their home. No matter what you try to evict them, nothing will overcome this imprinting.
Trying plastic owls, bird spikes, and other home remedies will often be unsuccessful. While they may have some initial effects, the overbearing urges will always win out.
To put an effective measure in place you will need the help of Jim’s Pest Control Central Coast. We offer obligation free quotes, so call us call today to find out more.
In some instances, the birds will need to be completely removed, and we have several options available to us. These bird control options include culling of the problem birds.

Wasps, unlike bees, can sting multiple times. Their stings can be extremely painful, and this multiplies by the number of stings you get.

Are holes magically appearing in your favourite clothes? It can certainly be a devastating experience to have your most cherished articles of clothing ruined. Even worse, finding the holes whilst you are out can be a source of sheer embarrassment. More concerning is not knowing how they appeared.
The likely culprit is going to be silverfish. These fast, but secretive pests only emerge in the wee hours of the morning.
Silverfish prefer to be in the garden, hiding under mulch and the bark of trees. When population numbers get too great, they move into the surrounding buildings. More often than not, that will be your home!
The best way of stopping them from becoming a problem in the first place is to put a chemical barrier around your home. This barrier can last up to several months and can help to keep them out.
If they are inside your home though, it may require a more extensive treatment.
The cost of silverfish pest control services start at around $220. This cost can vary so please call 131 546 to get a more accurate, obligation-free quote.
