Flying Insects & Pests


Honey bees were introduced to Australia by early settlers for a good supply of honey, but naturally a few escaped. Now they are found throughout Australia. Their size is about 1.3mm-1.6 mm and have very distinct yellow and black markings.

The honey bee defends its nests very aggressively and if you are stung, it is fatal to the bee, as the stinger pulls out the bee’s lower abdomen leaving the venom gland pumping in the victim. This is why they are a danger and a pest to humans: the sting cause local pain and swelling. Nests are usually found undercover or in cavities. Increased activity in a specific area or a concentration of bees to one area often means there is a nest nearby.

Clothes Moths

Discovering an infestation of clothes moths usually occurs too late - once you find a hole in a garment. However you if you see an adult moth flying about in your home, it could be time to check the closet. Moths like to live in dark spaces like closets and infest items like clothing and upholstery made of animal-based materials. Their larvae eat the fabrics and can leave stains from vomit and feces. A large population of moths in the home can become costly. If you suspect there’s moths in your home talk to our trained technicians about prevention methods and a treatment plan for your home.


Few pests are more annoying than flies. More than a nuisance, flies pose a serious risk to health, as the first responders to rotting food, especially meat. Fly infestations can spread diseases like Salmonella and E. Coli as they buzz from rotting matter, to surfaces to food, carrying their germs with them. Small infestations can quickly become serious problems with a rapid germination period, of sometimes, only seven days. If you’re experiencing more flies than usual, call Competitive Pest Services to inspect your property for a potential infestation and quick action plan to contain and remove the threat.


The signs of a mosquito infestation are annoying and clear - the high pitched buzzing and their bites. Only the females bite, for a blood meal to feed the eggs they’re about to lay. The immature stages of mosquitoes can be found in standing, preferably stagnant water. Small pools around the garden in watering dishes, containerised plants and many other places you may not be looking. Some people can have differing reactions to bites, from mild to intense inflammation. There are some measures you can take around the home to prevent mosquitoes however a professional inspection by our technicians can help with continued problems.


The common paper wasps are found all across southern mainland Australia from Southern Queensland, through New South Wales, down into Victoria and across to South Australia. They are 10-15mm long and will sometimes appear yellow in or red in colour. The wasp is a social insect and will usually have colonies of many individuals. They make their ‘paper’ nests by chewing nectar and using their saliva to form the nest.

The wasp is a beneficial insect around the home, they help control caterpillars, but they become extremely aggressive when approached or if their nest is disturbed. They can deliver a painful sting and the nests should be avoided during the day. Contact us if you have problems with wasps and our professional technicians will take care of it for you.

We were really impressed by the service provided by Competitive Pest Services. We had a vile slug problem in our home. Slugs can be extremely dangerous (esp with babies crawling) as they can carry a deadly parasite Rat Lung Worm - CPS were one of the only pest companies I found to provide a slug service, understand the risks of rat lung worm and had even written an article about it. BUT... it didn't end there - we were impressed with everything aspect of their service - from the articles I found on website on rat lung worm and slugs, to great contemporary website interface, prompt customer service including booking confirmation emails and sms appointment reminders, polite phone manner, and of course the pest inspector Andrew. Also - amazing value for money with a winter deal they had going for rat treatment as well. It's the sort of service you'd never expect from a trade company. Highly recommended. read more

Very happy with this company. I had a serious problem with ticks in the garden. I have had no tick bites since they treated it 4 months ago. They dealt with it very punctually, efficiently and were very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them to anybody and will be using them again. My neighbours are all intending to use them.I used them as I found them when looking for pest controls and they were one of the few that mentioned ticks and I also loved their quirky website.. read more

We were unlucky to find ourselves in a terrible situation when a visiting family member introduced bed bugs to our home and to complicate things even further, my wife was also 8 months pregnant.When we discovered the bug, my wife went into a frenzy of panic as we are aware the difficulties of managing bedbugs. She rang many pest control companies that day, however none offered service even close to Competitive Pest Control’s standard. They were just so far above the standard of the previous companies we had contacted.It started by the amazing representative on the phone who diffused my wife’s panic and distress by demonstrating empathy and actively listening to every concern that she had. Additionally, she was extremely knowledgeable and she explained everything thoroughly, particularly relating to the confusion between the huge price differences and the different types of treatments that we had been quoted throughout the day. We decided to go with Competitive Pest Control simply based on this excellent service, however it didn’t stop there. Once we stated we were interested in going ahead, she immediately referred us to the General Manager, Matt due to the fact that my wife was so heavily pregnant. Matt decided that he would cancel his golf game that day and drive to Sydney (at least 2 hours+) and handle this one himself. We are so thankful that Matt gave up his golf day to address our problem. He turned up on time (always a bonus for any at-home services) and is one of the nicest men you’ll ever meet. He showed genuine concern for my wife and our situation and I knew at that point, we had chosen the right company.Matt was so incredibly thorough in his inspection, he went into every single nook and cranny in the house, every seam in every piece of fabric and kept me completely informed of everything he was doing. He was at our home for many hours and did not stop until he was absolutely satisfied that he had addressed our bedbug issue.He carefully explained post treatment instructions and has since followed up twice to ensure we are 100% satisfied.I cannot speak highly enough of Matt and Competitive Pest Control team.read more
