Problems associated with pests can be divided in two categories; (a) Health pests and (b) Economic pests.

Termites for instance are economic pests causing upwards of thousands of dollars damage to a home. Cockroaches, rats and mice are health pests causing many forms of illnesses to people and pets through contamination of food, utensils and surfaces. Conversely, rats and mice are also economic pests responsible for gnawing through electrical wires, water pipes and food.

Our Cockroach Treatments can be spray free as all we target are the cockroaches. There is no need to empty cupboards or leave the house as there is no unpleasant odour or spray drying time. In a business environment we can work around you with care so that there are no problems for you, your staff or customers.

Some pests such as termites, rodents and product pests like meal moth and weevils cause economic damage that can run into thousands of dollars in repairs and product loss and in the case of the workplace, can cause failure of audits, breaches of regulations and unhappy memories for customers.


It is important to us when managing and controlling these pests that it is done with minimal disruption to not only your home, family or business but the environment as well.

This is what Sanctuary Pest Control and Termite Management does best and we can be relied upon to be there whenever you need us and have a solution to whatever your problem is!
