Newcastle and surroundings have a humid subtropical climate, as a result of heavier rainfall in late autumn and early winter and are located along the east coast of new south wales nearby the sea and surrounded by the regions of the Hunter Region and Hunter Valley, City of Lake Macquarie, Cessnock, Maitland and Port Stephens Council.
This climate creates the perfect conditions for pest problems to occur. As the climate changes, more prolonged warmer weather occurs, which helps extend cockroach and spider seasons, and the cold snap of winter will always welcome rodents to a warm roof space or sheltered sub-floor.
Our Newcastle pest control company are experts in the region for pests and pest control treatments and techniques, offering safer chemicals and products for our treatments. Newcastle’s main pest problems are linked to the age of the city and construction materials such as weatherboards and houses on piers creating a more attractive harbourage area for cockroaches, spiders and rodents etc.
A humid climate and proximity to the sea also mean that summer and spring will bring on faster breeding cycles and more significant numbers of pests. This climate creates ideal breeding conditions for a range of household pests, often resulting in pest infestation and pest breakouts from pests.
