Joondalup Portuguese Millipede (Ommatoiulus moreletii)

Portuguese millipedes grow to their full length of 5 cm by their second year. Their unmistakable shiny black body and numerous legs makes them stand out in the aussie bush. During Summer, they lay their eggs after breeding. They moult again in Spring, lose their “mating legs” and become asexual until the next Summer. When threatened they release a yellow, foul smelling liquid full of “quinones” that contain hydrogen sulfide which stops predators. Although it stains clothes it is easily water soluble, although a mild irritant to eyes and sensitive areas.

Antipesto, a team of Millipede Control specialists in Joondalup that services residential as well as commercial buildings, has seen moist mulch areas attract them and at night they are able to crawl over paving and shorter lawns. As such they are more of a nuisance pest, but when infesting in their tens of thousands that is small comfort. They are attracted to light at night so outdoor lights can be a problem.

 

Best ways to stop Joondalup Millipedes:

  • Build a Millipede light trap (a light with a moat around it)
  • Get some chickens.
  • Get rid of mulch against the house.
  • Get some chickens.
  • Parasitic nematodes kill them and can be bought online, but are slow acting, costly and a short term solution.
  • Get some chickens!

Termite Pest Control

Taking Care of Termites for years

 

Antipesto Termite Control Perth specialises in the art of detecting and preventing termites. Termites that attack houses in Western Australia are subterranean, meaning they travel and usually live under the ground level. This makes them difficult to detect. Of course we have all the experience and termite detection tools to help you with your property and investment.

Perth Pest Questions

Here are some of the common questions our Perth pest control customers ask us. Still have questions?

Are your pest treatments safe for pets & kids?

All of our products used inside and outside your property are free from solvents, gases & aerosols. This means you will not smell or breathe in anything at all! Our water based products target insects only & our rodent treatment targets rats & mice only.

How much do pest control treatments cost?

Most pest control treatments cost between $240 to $450 depending on the package selected. Customers have annual or twice yearly pest treatments and target ants, spiders & cockroaches all at once. Our $290 Pest Special for Spiders, Cockroaches & Ants inside & out is our most requested treatment.

How do I prepare for my pest treatment?

Please leave spider webs and ant mounds alone so we can see where your pest probems are! Take any clothes of the washing line and shut your windows. Open up any sheds, garages and areas you would like to be pest free. Clear out any cupboards or inside areas you need treated also.

What should I expect after my pest control treatment?

There will be no smell. You should see a massive reduction of the pest population. Small areas may experience more pest activity up to two weeks as they are flushed out. Please leave sprinklers off for two days after your pest treatment, so ants wander out in search of water.

How often and when should I have my pest treatment?

Usually domestic home clients use our pest services once or twice a year, depending on location and target pest. It's smart to combine pests targeted all into one treatment. For example, a roof void treatment for rats is $210 by itself, but only $100 extra with any pest treatment.
