Pest Control Epsom and Ascot


Professional Pest Services in Epsom and Ascot from Go Pest

Go Pest Bendigo provide professional pest control services throughout Central Victoria to homeowners and businesses.

We are fully licensed and insured to provide a full range of pest control and termite services in Epsom and Ascot, including:

Spiders, cockroaches and ants are some of the common pests homeowners call us about. To keep these pests and other crawling insects from entering the home, we recommend having a general pest treatment, known as a ‘spider spray’, every year. Scheduling this service at the start of spring minimises the number of pests that can find their way indoors. 

Termites on the other hand are active all year round and are a continuous threat to building. This is why it is strongly recommended that homeowners have their property inspected for termite activity every year. Combining this annual termite inspection with a general pest spray is an option that is popular with many of our customers. 

For commercial properties, customised pest management plans are created, taking into account the needs and requirements of the individual business. At Go Pest we appreciate the need for thorough documentation and pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of paperwork, ensuring local businesses meet regulatory their requirements. Restaurants, cafes, hotels, schools and aged care facilities are just some of the businesses we partner with.

Termite Inspections, Termite Treatments and Termite Protection in Epsom and Ascot

The subterranean termites that attack the timbers in people’s homes are incredibly difficult to spot; a thin line of mud and an area of brown dust could actually be the mud tubes and nest of a thriving termite colony. Without knowing the signs to look for, termites activity is very difficult to identify. 

This is the reason why it’s important to have a professional termite inspection every year. Termites act quickly, and can cause significant damage to a property in just a few months. Having an annual inspection will identify any termite activity, as well as identify potential areas where termites could gain hidden access. The comprehensive report will outline measures to be taken to minimise the potential for termites entering the building. If termite activity is found, a number of termite treatment options will be discussed, taking into account building type and soil conditions.

The most effective way to protect your home from termites is to install a termite protection system. This will usually mean installing a bait/monitoring system or treating the soil around the property with a termiticide. Both systems work by intercepting termites as they naturally forage in the soil, making it almost impossible for termites to access the property without being detected.

Key Pests in Epsom and Ascot

Ascot Bushland Reserve is a hotspot for termites, making homes in Ascot and nearby Epsom under significant threat of termite attack. As termites are active all year round, they should always be regarded as the top pest in the area.

During the warmer months, white-tailed and huntsman spiders can find their way indoors, along with cockroaches and ants. Pest activity will always be higher from spring to autumn when conditions are the most favourable. 

Homeowners and business owners will often notice rats and mice, as the weather cools down and rodents head indoors to make a warm nest for the winter. As rodents are smart creatures, it’s important to understand their behaviours and so a professional rodent treatment is generally the best way to get them under control. 

About Epsom and Ascot

Epsom is a developing northern suburb of Bendigo that lies at the junction of the Bendigo and Piccaninny Creeks, 7 km to the north of Bendigo CBD. The Dja Dja Wurrung are the traditional owners of the land. During the 1850s the land was mined for gold, reaching its peak in the 1860s. Once the land had been exhausted, many miners took to farming and growing produce. 

During this time, the soil revealed excellent clay, which enterprising immigrant George Guthrie saw as an opportunity to create a pottery works. The Bendigo Pottery (pictured above) was opened in 1858 and today remains open for pottery workshops and as a historic place of interest.

The settlement of Ascot is separated from Epsom but the railway line. Like Epsom, the settlement was named after an English location famous for horse racing, most likely due to its proximity to the Bendigo racecourse.
