Peter is a lifesaver! He provided invaluable ongoing advice to us over the phone when we were dealing with a potential bed bug infestation, and came out to our property to have a look (free of charge). Such incredible service and advice - thank you!

After the shock of finding termites in our garage I felt my luck had turned when I got in contact with Peter from Hindmarsh Pest Control. Peter is upfront, knowledgeable and just a nice guy. When Simon and his team came to do the job they were extremely thorough and helped a heap by answering all my stupid questions. Could not recommend them enough. Thanks guys

Simon did a fantastic job and the proof I have already seen, with dead spider sightings already. If you hate these things as much as I do you know it'simportant to see the body to make sure they are dead. Thanks again and I will get him back next time!

We love everything about Simon's work. He's reliable, professional, good value and most importantly; he's thorough and honest.Our previous experience with a larger well known pest company left us disappointed after they did not install the termite bates adequately. There was also no personal service like Simon provides us.My partner and I highly recommend Simon for your pest & termite issues, we're so happy, thank you Simon 🙂

Simon gave me a quote two and a half years ago but I opted to go with another company much to my dismay and dissatisfaction. Recently because of the ongoing termite problems in my home I am employed Simon and he has baited and inspected. He was punctual, reliable and has a thorough understanding of his trade. He was very informative answered all my questions clearly and spent many more hours on my property than originally anticipated however did not alter his original quote that he had given me. I would highly recommend Simon and his company to anybody who has any pest problems in their home

We found the signs of termites in our home 4 years ago and of the companies my husband called, Simon from HPC was the only one who came out to inspect that same day, on a Saturday afternoon. Fortunately the baiting removed all activity and we have continued monitoring and regular inspections, and feel secure in Simon's knowledge and expertise to keep our house safe. Very professional, reliable and responsive service and we would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Excellent company which is thorough and professional in every aspect. The job was not rushed and the pest controller, Paul, listened carefully to my request. The pool area was treated for ants, and the rest of the property for spiders and other unwanted insects. We have used them before and I would not hesitate to use them again. Highly recommend Hindmarsh Pest control.

I had a spider problem just after the completion of building my new home. Simon suggested a spider treatment, which worked a treat and I now have him spray my property every year as a precaution. He is very thorough and professional and I believe in supporting small local business so I would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Successful bird management involves identification of the pest species, understanding bird behaviour and problem solving the unique situation you find at each site.

Bird management is often challenging due to working at height and the necessary safety precautions that must be implemented.

Bird management typically involves exclusion measures (bird proofing), although sometimes it is necessary to trap, bait or shoot problem birds.

It is important to understand which birds are classified as native bird as this impacts the management options.

All bird management activities are covered under the Animal Welfare Act

Decoys and electrified systems are two ways to prevent roosting birds

Bird proofing – the exclusion of birds from an area – is generally the preferred bird management method. This is particularly the case when buildings need to be protected from nesting and / or roosting birds.

A number of products and technique are utilised to bird proof buildings. The choice of product is heavily influenced by the nature of the area to be protected, the bird species, the bird pressure (the number of birds present) and the aesthetics required (some buildings require a low profile or ‘invisible’ product).

Products for ledges and narrow resting areas:

  • Bird spikes
  • Bird post and wire
  • Bird slope
  • Electrified shock system

For enclose areas (eg. warehouses):

  • Bird netting
  • Vinyl strip curtains / doors

The investment in bird proofing pays for itself when you consider the costs and risks of doing nothing – Why Pest Birds are a Problem?

Do you offer clean up services?

Solar panels can be easily damaged by nesting birds, especially due to their droppings which can be corrosive to metal components and significantly reduce the efficiency of the panels themselves.

Nesting birds also carry a range of diseases which can be transmitted through their droppings and the birds can also introduce bird mites into the roof void.

Hindmarsh Pest Control can install skirting around solar panels to prevent birds from nesting underneath, providing lasting protection from birds and ensuring solar panels deliver the performance expected. If there are additional problems from birds roosting on the roof, then additional bird repellent / exclusion products will be required.

Cleaning services?

Pest birds can cause a wide range of problems

Damage

  • Bird droppings are corrosive and cause damage to buildings and surfaces.
  • Droppings, nesting material and feathers, spoil products and goods for sale
  • Feed on agricultural and horticulture crops

Health Hazard

  • Birds and their droppings carry a wide range of diseases, such as Salmonella, E. coli, psittacosis and histoplasmosis
  • Birds also carry a number of parasites, including bird mites and lice
  • Large amounts of droppings on pavements can create a slip hazard

Economic costs

  • Regular clean-up costs
  • Lost product / goods
  • Repair damage to buildings

Environmental impact

  • Noise pollution: large number of roosting birds can create a significant noise issue

In Adelaide, the key pest birds are the pigeon (or rock dove) and common starling.

Other invasive pest birds include the English house sparrow and Indian Myna.

Native birds that cause a pest problem (and so have to be managed carefully), include the silver gull (seagull), sulphur crested cockatoo, corella, Australian white ibis and welcome swallow.
