We use Fipronil. This product is outstanding; social insects like ants and cockroaches, after contacting the product, carry it back to their nest and pass it on via feeding and grooming.
Most Pest Controllers won’t spend the money to use Fipronil, but we do; that’s how we can get the job done effectively and offer a solid warranty and your money back. *
Note: Synthetic Pyrethrum products may also be used on the exterior.

It may cost us three times more compared to inferior products on the market, but it creates happy clients and dramatically cuts warranty call backs. WIN WIN!!
When it comes to ants, if you see a few, it won’t be long until your home is over run by them. This is because ants leave a pheromone or scent trail for the colony to follow to a source of food such as a kitchen, pantry and bathrooms.
Here in Australia we have about 3000 species of Ants. Some of the common ants you will find around your home or workplace are:
-White footed House Ant
-Black House Ant
-Coastal Brown Ant
Our Service covers all Ant species.
Successful control of ants requires experience, the best products and thorough knowledge of their nesting and foraging habits.
A comprehensive inspection of the property is conducted to locate and treat the nest. As the nest is the source of the ant infestation, it is usually the most effective way to treat the ant infestation.
We apply liquid product to create barriers to the exterior and interior of the dwelling during our general pest treatment to deter ants from entering your home.
After your treatment it may take up to 3 to 6 weeks to gain control.
Please get in contact with us now to beat your ant problem!
Adult Carpet beetles are small with compact, oval rounded bodies. Legs and head are not obvious, often being hidden under the body.
Larvae are short (4-7mm long, depending on species), brown and covered in bristles; they move slowly. As they grow they moult, leaving cast brown skins.
Larvae of Carpet beetles feed on dry materials of animal origin such as wool, fur, silk, felt, dried meat and carcasses. Carpets, rugs, under felt, wall hangings, clothing, wool insulation and insect collections are frequently damaged. Variegated and Black carpet beetles are the most widespread and damaging species.
If an infested article is transportable, remove it from your home for disposal or treatment by DCPC, there is a DIY method of treatment, wrapped in plastic and deep-freeze it for 2 weeks.
Chemical treatments are recommended if the carpet beetles are found eating your carpets, skin mats or clothes.
This service involves a light treatment to all natural fibre carpets, with a Pyrethrum product. We will service around and under all furniture. We recommend treatment to the interior of all linen cupboards and wardrobes.
We will thoroughly explain the process and ways you can help to keep on top of infestation.
An inspection may be required to the roof void or subfloor, if storage is present, to determine if affected by the carpet beetles. If activity is found, treatment to these areas is included.
In Australia we have approximately 450 species of Cockroaches, and thank goodness only about 6 of those are serious pests. These include:
- German Cockroach
- Australian Cockroach
- American Cockroach
- Oriental Cockroach
- Brown Banded Cockroach
- Smokey Brown Cockroach
Cockroaches enter homes to find shelter, water and food. Once they have infested an area they can multiply quickly, posing a threat to your comfort and health. It is important to get rid of Cockroaches before a serious infestation occurs.
Cockroaches are known to carry bacteria that can result in food poisoning, diarrhea, allergies and skin rashes. They are also known to carry salmonella. In largely infested sites they really STINK, we are able to smell them when we are at the front door.
There are a number of ways that you, the homeowner, can help to prevent Cockroaches. Some of these include:
- Proper food storage
- Sealing holes and cracks
- Limiting moisture in the home
- Don’t leave unwashed dishes in the sink
- Starving them of food will greatly reduce Cockroach numbers
For more information on how you can help keep cockroaches out, please get in contact with us, we are happy to give FREE ADVICE.
When you engage Dylan Cope’s Pest Control, we assess the infestation and determine the best possible treatment for the types of Cockroaches in your home. Our treatments are perfectly safe for humans and pets and environmentally friendly.
Steps to Controlling Cockroaches
During your treatment we are looking for signs of Cockroaches. We look for live and dead cockroaches, droppings and egg capsules in areas that they are attracted to.
- Behind stove, oven, fridge, dishwasher, appliances, cupboards and sinks.
- Wet areas such as bathroom and laundry in cabinets and drawers.
If your dwelling has a subfloor or roof void, they are inspected to determine the extent of the cockroach infestation and treated accordingly.
Liquid, powder and baiting products are effective in controlling cockroaches but are
safe for humans, pets and environmentally friendly.
Liquid products are a tried and proven method used to control pests:
Benefits of Liquid Products:
- Bonds well to all surfaces
- Dries clear
- Won’t stain
- Residual lasts for many months
Dust products travel to where the pests hide into every nook and cranny. Wall and roof cavities are a real hot spot for cockroaches.
Benefits of Dust Products:
- Floats and bonds to cavity surfaces
- Flushes cockroaches out
- Fast acting
- Great residual, will last for months
Bait products can be applied in kitchens and bathroom cupboards, pretty much anywhere. It often removes the need for clients to empty their kitchen cupboards.
- Saves our clients hours of work
- Inconspicuous to the eye
- Remains palatable for months
These products are applied to:
Interior – areas treated
- Skirting boards in every room
- Cracks and crevices and cupboards
- Dust is used in the roof void and wall cavities, these areas are a hot spot for the larger cockroaches
- The dust offers great residual protection, the dust floats and covers every nook and cranny as the dust settles it bonds to every possible surface, making it a NO GO ZONE for Cockroaches.
Exterior – areas treated
- Perimeter walls
- Around doors and windows,
- Eaves and gutters up to the first floor
- Gardens and much more.
- If your home has a subfloor we crawl all the way in and treat cockroach harbourage areas. Whilst under your home we look for destructive pests or things of concern. Eg: water leaks.
- We know this is a space most homeowners don’t inspect; we will look after that for you.
Cockroaches – 6 months
German Cockroaches – 3 months Interior
Generally after a treatment you will see a lot more activity from cockroaches as they are dying and leaving the comfort of their hides.
Eventually, they will start to disappear around 2 to 4 weeks. From time to time you may see some cockroaches re-appear, be patient, as when they contact our products they will start to die, normally within a few days. If the problem returns so do we, under your service warranty.
Silverfish are a primitive, wingless insect with six legs. These insects are white to brown-grey or bluish-silver in colour, are teardrop in shape and measure 12mm -19 mm in length. You can identify silverfish by their tapered body and the appearance of silvery scales giving them ‘fish-like’ features.
These insects like to dwell in dark, damp areas such as garages, sheds, kitchens and bathrooms and are capable of thriving in most climates. You may find them trapped in the bottom of your sink.
They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing. Silverfish are commonly found in cupboards and in stored cardboard boxes.
SIGNS OF A SILVERFISH INFESTATION
Silverfish are nocturnal and move very quickly. They hide in dark corners and a severe infestation may go unnoticed for long periods of time, allowing for rampant growth. Holes in your clothes or curtains are often a sign.
You don’t want a silverfish infestation to take hold in your home. Therefore, you need to contact us as soon as you see any evidence of them. If you have an infestation you will need a professional to treat both the adults and their eggs.
We apply a liquid Pyrethrum product (safe for humans, pets and environmentally friendly) to the internal areas of your home including carpets, empty wardrobes, linen cupboard, kitchen and bathrooms.
In Australia we have many species of spiders, and to most homeowners, none are welcome! Spiders cause a lot of discomfort to people especially when sharing the home with them.
Although spiders can be poisonous they do not usually cause harm. In fact, since the successful introduction of anti-venom in 1956 there have been very few fatalities from spider bites. But we still do not want them around the home.
Some of the common spiders you may find around your home are:
- Sydney Funnel Web
- Red Back Spider
- Black House Spider
- Mouse Spider
- White Tail
- Garden Orb Weaver
- Daddy Long Legs
This starts with an inspection of your property to ascertain where the spiders are nesting and harbourage areas.
Treating spiders inside your home will involve applying a product to:
- Floor edges in all rooms
- Directly treat spiders and webbing
Is treated with Pyrethrum powder, pressure injected into the void. The powder will penetrate all nooks and crannies, controlling them fast.
We treat around windows, doors, eaves, gutters, external walls, gardens, fencing and interior and exterior of sheds and garages and any areas where spiders could be hiding.
Spraying all harbourage areas, leaving no areas for spiders to hide, treats the subfloor.
Ground Dwelling Spiders
For dangerous spiders such as Funnel Webs, Mouse or Trapdoor spiders we can use a non-repellent product, which does not aggravate them and prevents flushing them out. These products slowly kill the spiders and they die in their burrows.
We would only recommend a ground Spider service if the problem were severe, as it can be ineffective, at times, on small infestations. Ground dwelling spider services are not covered under our General Pest Service.
