Jim’s Pest Control offer all pest services to Newcastle and surrounding towns and suburbs in the Hunter Valley. Our local techs servicing the area are experienced, fully trained, and insured. You can trust the Jim’s name to help you with any pest problem.
Why is a pest inspection important?
Jim’s has been helping Hunter Valley residcents with their pest problems since 2011. In this time, we have helped thousands of residents to exterminate and control their pests.
At Jim’s, we are committed to ensuring our techs are trained in all aspects of pest control. This extensive training has often resulted in our technicians being able to identify other pest problems whilst dealing with the initial report.
For instance, one of our techs was called out to perform a routine bee removal service. The bees had been able to gain access to the clients converted garage. However, when our technician entered the area, he soon spotted some termite mud leads going up a wall.
Because of his expert training and experience in termite identification, it was easy for him to spot this more pressing problem.
The client had no idea that they had termites munching on their walls.
So, a simple call out to save some bees resulted in saving the client’s home from being destroyed by termites.

Our local techs have been fully trained in all aspects of pest control. This extensive training enables us to offer you any pest control service that you may require.

Pests treated by our Sydney service include:
Spiders are something that most people are fearful of. In the case of some spiders their fear can be justified. If spiders are bothering you, then you may want to have a spider treatment. Your local tech will come and spray a repellent chemical around your home or business.
It forms an invisible barrier that the spiders cannot cross. If they are stubborn and do cross, they will soon succumb to the product. A good barrier spray can keep these scary little creatures at bay for 6 to 12 months. Costs start from around $180 and will vary in accordance with the size of building and areas that need to be sprayed.
Mice and rats can be quite difficult to control. Many attempts are made by locals to control these vermin with little success. Eventually Jim’s Pest Control will need to be called in. Our local techs are the experts at exterminating these pests. You can be assured that we have the most up-to-date products available that are known and proven to deliver exceptional results. In fact, rodents have even been observed crawling over regular DIY shop-brought baits just to get to ours.
Treating rodents can be done for as little as $160 for a one off treatment. However, a more extensive treatment may be required which will affect the overall price. Warranties are usually given on more extensive treatments. Because of our reputation, many Newcastle residents call Jim’s Pest Control to get their rats and mice dealt with quickly and efficiently.
Ants are one of those truly annoying pests that you can not seem to get rid of. Our moist costal environment provides the ideal conditions for them. There are many different types of ants and often, only an expert can tell them apart. It is important to establish what type of ant you have because their feeding patterns will be different.
This will obviously affect the effectiveness of any treatment. Your local Jim’s Pest Control understands this and has spent months learning about the different ant species. For example, they know the difference between a protein eater and a sugar eater, and what ant baits should be used where.
Our ant treatment prices start from as little as $120. Obviously, the price will depend on what species of ant you have, the size of your property, and the treatment measure deployed.

There is nothing more annoying than spotting some fleas bouncing around your home or back yard. Their eggs can often stay dormant for up to 9 months. As soon as a human or an animal enters the area, they will sense the vibrations and hatch instantly.
It is not uncommon for a vacant house to be infested with these critters. Jim’s Pest Control often get phone calls from Newcastle residents who have just moved in and discovered fleas.
Pigeon or bird control
Pigeon’s and other birds are becoming an emerging pest problem experienced by Newcastle residents. With most of us looking at using green energy, it has been a windfall for pigeons.
Did you know that the height of solar panels is ideal for pigeons to nest under?
Yes, that is correct, pigeons have worked out that solar panels are a great place for them to raise a family. It helps them shelter from the elements and predators. It has led to an explosion in pigeon numbers. While they pose no great threat to human life directly, they do carry some very nasty diseases.
Their constant cooing is also very annoying and often starts before dawn. Jim’s Pest Control are the experts at stopping these birds getting under your panels. In some cases, we may even need to remove the pigeon population by the means of culling. We are fully licensed and insured to carry out this work, and all shoots are checked in with the local police beforehand.
Have you ever been stung by something mysterious? Often you will not see the perpetrator. When this happens, your local Jim’s Pest Control technician knows it is likely to have been a wasp.
These sneaky little critters seem to wait in ambush for you to walk past. If the truth be known, they are only protecting their young from predators.They often set up nests under eave lines and plants. It can be hard to spot where they are coming from, and this is where the expertise of your local Newcastle pest tech will come in handy. Prices for wasp nest removal and control will always depend on the wasp species and location. A simple, small nest could cost as little as $120 for removal.
Where possible, we will always go down the path of bee removal and try to capture bees, then relocate to a beekeeper. They are especially important creatures and have a vital role to play in our environment.
However, unfortunately in some cases it will not be possible, and they may need to be exterminated. This is often the case when a bee hive has moved into a wall cavity. It is almost impossible to remove them successfully and often results in great expense to the property owner.
Your local Jim’s Pest Control technician will be able to work out if they can be saved or not. A simple bee extermination starts at $120. Prices may vary due to location and accessibility. Bee removal is more expensive as the bees will need to be captured, relocated, and re-homed.
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with welts all over your body from being bitten by buzzing little blood suckers? The culprit during the summer months is likely to be a mozzie (mosquito).
Jim’s Pest Control is one of the few companies in Newcastle that can offer a real solution to these problem pests. We have treatments such as undetectable barriers, which are placed where they land to rest. The mosquitoes the simply ingest some of the chemical which quickly finishes them off. Having a mosquito-free summer is why so many Newcastle residents call Jim’s Pest Control for a mosquito treatment.
While possums are cute, furry little creatures that people love to feed, they can become a nuisance. Possums that are provided with an ample food source will soon look for a place to live close by. Often, they will move into nearby roof voids. If you have ever had a possum in your roof, you will know how noisy they can be, especially in the early hours of the morning.
However, as they are a protected species, you must have a relevant permit to capture them. All Jim’s Pest Control Newcastle technicians have the correct permits. While they are being held in cages, you can arrange for their access points to be sealed up before their release. Possum removal and trapping starts at $220, but there is likely to be a daily trapping fee too. The state law requires the traps to be checked daily by a permitted person.
Silverfish are one of the seemingly invisible pests. You only discover you have them once you spot holes in your clothing. They can be tricky to treat as you are unlikely to know where they originate. Commonly you will spot silverfish living in the bark on trees, and they frequent bark chips as well. Potentially what you do in your garden may make it a suitable habitat for silverfish. Once established, they will invade your home.
A general pest treatment performed by your local Jim’s Pest Control technician is often enough to keep them at bay. The cost of a silverfish treatment is around $220, but may vary depending on size of house and site conditions.
