In an ideal world, pests would remain within strict boundaries; namely, outside of your home. At DNA Pest Control, we work hard to keep pests out of your home or business. We have years of experience handling the unwanted pests that appear time and again in the local area. For pest control in Nowra, we are your resident experts. Let’s take a look at some of the most common pests found in Nowra homes.


The most common types of ants found in Nowra homes are black and brown ants. These ants live in large colonies, so if you notice a few ants around your house, there likely are many more. These ants will not cause structural damage, but they are an annoying pest and will often find their way into your kitchens, munching on your sweets and other foods.


Fleas are a hard pest to spot, but their itchy, bothersome presence on your pets is undeniable. Your home is particularly prone to flea infestation if you have cats and dogs, but can make their way in even if you don’t have pets. Pest control in Nowra deals with these pests often, and we know how to root out the fleas–treating your carpets, linens, and other areas.


Most cockroaches are not harmful to humans, but they are a disgusting pest that no one wants to have. Cockroaches are a very common pest, and some species are capable of carrying germs. We use a variety of treatments and traps to make sure these little buggers get gone and stay gone.


By far one of the most common pests, termites can cause serious structural damage to your home or business if left untreated. As termite control experts, DNA Pest Control has years of experience treating homes for termites, and inspecting for signs of termite damage and infestation. Termite inspections can be performed visually, and it is a good idea to have these inspections done frequently.


Australia is home to a large variety of spiders, and notorious for some venomous species. Common home pests include black house spiders, white tailed spiders, and daddy long legs. As spiders can be unsettling to many, we know how vital it is to remove them from your property. DNA Pest Control experts utilise chemical treatments in the many nooks and crannies we know spiders may be found. We use extensive treatment systems which will ensure that you feel secure that these pests have been eradicated from your home.
