Since 2011, Jim’s Pest Control has been helping Wollongong locals with pest problems. We have treated thousands of homes and businesses, successfully eliminating pests in the process.
Our techs servicing the area are trained in all aspects of pest control, and that places our clients at a distinct advantage as we can identify more pressing pest problems.
For instance, a client called us out to perform a routine general pest treatment. As the tech was performing his pre-treatment check, he noticed some subtle signs of termites in a wall.
He quickly went out and grabbed some termite inspection equipment from the vehicle. Soon he was able to confirm that there was a termite colony hiding in the walls.
The client was completely unaware that termites were munching on their home.
If our tech were not fully trained in all aspects of pest control, he would have easily missed theses signs. It would have been an unmitigated disaster for the client if left unchecked.

Our moist coastal environment are the Illawarra provide the ideal conditions for ants. They breed up in significant numbers during the summer months.
Most people think all ants are the same, however this is not true. Ants can be split into two separate categories: protein eaters or sugar eaters.
It is critically important to the success of any ant treatment that you discover which ones you have. If not, the treatment plan you put in place is likely to fail.
Our local pest control services techs are experts at working out which ones you have. As a plus, our ant treatment prices start from as little as $120. This price will vary though depending on what species you have, the size of property, and the treatment measure deployed.
Bees are a vital part of our environment and have an important role to play. Therefore, at Jim’s Pest Control we are committed to capturing and relocating bees where possible.
We work closely with local beekeepers to ensure our captured bees have a forever home to go to. Being committed to bee conservation is why more Wollongong locals prefer to use Jim’s.
Unfortunately, in some cases, it will not be possible to capture and relocate them. If the beehive is in an inaccessible area the only option may be to terminate them.

The cost of bee extermination starts at $120 and prices may vary due to accessibility and location.
Removing bees live and relocating them to their forever home can be more expensive.

Spiders terrify most people; just the thought of them in your home is enough to panic many. However, in most cases the spider spotted is harmless and often trying to run away from you.
When people get bitten by a spider it is often due to the spider defending themselves. They do not actively seek you out, looking to cause you harm.
To put it simply, people are just not in their food chain.
That said, having spiders lurking around your home is a concern for most people. In these cases, we recommend that you have a spider treatment performed.
This involves applying a repellent chemical barrier around your home or business. If the spider decides to cross it, they will soon be adversely affected by the treatment.
The cost of such a treatment starts from around $180 but may vary depending on the size of your building. A good barrier treatment can keep these pests at bay for 6 to 12 months depending on the site.
Pigeon or bird control
Pigeons, and the diseases they carry, are a real health issue for Wollongong residents. Their droppings are the main cause of concern.
With everyone in the area going “green”, we are installing more and more solar panels. Unknowingly though, we are creating the perfect shelter for pigeons.
Solar panels are just the right height for them to nest under. It provides shelter from the sun and weather as well as protection from predators.
This is the main reason why we are seeing an explosion in pigeon numbers.
Jim’s receives calls daily from distressed locals who are sick of being woken by their cooing. Locals in the area know that Jim’s Pest Control’s techs are the experts at eradicating these problem birds.
In most cases some bird proofing of the solar panels is sufficient, but in some cases the birds may need to be culled. Either way, Jim’s will be able to help you, and we’re fully licences to carry out whichever method is required.
Cute and cuddly is how most people would describe possums. Wollongong residents will entice them into their yards with food as they think they are helping these animals.

Trapping and removing possums prices start from $220. Theere may also be a daily trapping fee as by law we must check the trap every day.
