    Common Australian pests

    The Australian cockroach

    Originating in Asia, these cockroaches are predominately brown and feature a yellow border around the head. They are winged, may fly, feed on organic matter, and are often found in or around greenhouses.

    The American cockroach

    Commonly found in domestic environments, these cockroaches eat organic matter, food scraps, paper and clothes, and are one of the largest found in Australia. They are reddish brown in colour with 2 wings and are found outdoors but can still inhabit walls, subfloors and roof voids.


    Bedbugs can be a problem in any household and require vigilant cleanliness to isolate them and keep them under control. Bedbugs often transfer from one building to another through clothes, luggage and furniture.

    The German cockroach

    Although not limited to any specific area, German cockroaches tend to be found in kitchens and bathrooms and both domestic and commercial environments. They are small, light brown with 2 dark stripes on their head, and are not renowned for flying.

    The Oriental cockroach

    Medium in size and dark brown to black in colour, these cockroaches possess wings but cannot fly, climb walls or smooth surfaces. They are often found in sinks, baths, under the kitchen sink and in cold and damp areas.

    The honey bee

    The swarming of the honey bee colony usually occurs during spring when there is no shortage of pollen and nectar. When the colony becomes overcrowded, the queen bee will leave in search of a new nest that could be very close to your home, and will need to be dealt with urgently.

    The European wasp

    Most active in the warmer months, the European wasp can still be seen all year round and is attracted to meat and sweet food. It’s capable of stinging its victim more than once, each time injecting venom, causing a very painful reaction. This wasp's nest is often found in a wall cavity, roof of a house and also underground.

    The yellow papernest and common papernest wasp

    The common papernest wasp usually nests in tree branches, window frames or house eaves, whereas the yellow papernest wasp’s nest is usually hidden. Its nest is grey and oval shaped. These wasps are not aggressive towards people unless provoked and can sting more than once.

    House spiders

    Black to grey in colour, house spiders are commonly found in areas that provide shelter, food and security. They have round, tunnel-like webs with an entry hole, mainly feed on insects that fall in their webs, and will only attack people who attempt to move their nest. House spiders have a nasty but non-lethal bite.

    Redback spiders

    As one of the most well-known and poisonous spiders, the female redback spiders bite can cause severe illness or even death. These spiders love to hide under tables and chairs, especially outside. Females are easily distinguishable by their deep black body with a red strip on the top of their abdomen and males are rarely seen and are not lethal to humans.

    White tail spiders

    Dark grey or black in colour and featuring a white mark on the tip of its abdomen, this spider can become aggressive when touched or threatened. They have an extremely painful bite that can cause ulceration and necrosis in some people. Although mostly found outside, these spiders may take refuge on a bathroom wall or under furniture.

    The daddy long legs

    Often found in and around houses, under tables, television units, bookcases and in corners of rooms, and where they will commonly spin their webs. This spider can bite a human but its venom is certainly not the deadliest of all spiders but is deadly to other spiders, including the redback.

    The Norway rat

    The largest of the pest rat group, the Norway rat has a blunt snout, small ears and a tail shorter than its body length. Norway rats are widespread and can be found in locations that offer food and shelter, often nesting in wall and roof voids and other secretive areas with access to food and water.

    The roof rat

    Roof rats are smaller and more slender than Norway rats with a pointed snout, large ears and tails longer than their body. They are often found inside buildings, around docks, are more suited to cities, nest in roof and wall voids and like to consume fruit and vegetables.

    The house mouse

    Small and dark grey in colour with large ears, a pointed snout and a tail as long as its body length, the house mouse likes to nest in cupboards, furniture and the roof and voids in walls. They eat a variety of food and contaminate foods with their urine and droppings.
