The beautiful and constantly developing Maitland Region of the Hunter Valley is a known hot spot for pest activity with Hunter and Coast Pest Control’s experienced Professional Pest technicians spending almost half their time servicing the region for all the major pests this area of NSW has to offer – if you can think of a pest, the Maitland Region has it and this is due to a range of factors from the warm dry summers, the beautiful low-density acreages that provide plenty of pastured land for snakes and wildlife that bring with them their fair share of ticks, fleas, bird mites, mosquitoes, cockroaches and ants (to name a few!) The Maitland Region is managed by the fine folk at Maitland City Council who have delineated the region into 5 wards – north, south, east, west and central. Coming from Newcastle the region of Maitland begins at the East Maitland and Thornton area with Thornton being the home of one of the most popular housing developments “Somerset Park” (which was helped along by the marketing of Newcastle’s favourite son, Andrew Johns) this development is a pest control hotspot especially redback spiders which have adapted to finding shelter underneath wheelie bins and children’s play equipment, especially trampolines. Responsible homeowners in the Thornton area often contact us to organise thermal imaging camera termite inspections, termite barrier systems and general pest sprays for their properties.
