Keep An Eye Out For These Common Household Pests

Living in South East Queensland especially, the variation and sheer amount of pests that we are prone to experiencing verges on madness at certain points of the year, but the good news is that there are professionals who can step in to help when the going gets tough!

Professionals like the team here at Holloway Pest And Carpet! We do all of the up close and personal pest work so that you don’t have to. We know it’s not everyone’s idea of a good DIY task! To give you an idea of our services, here are some of the most common pests dealt with by our pest control in Toowoomba.


Termites are arguably the most aggressive and troublesome form of pest that you might have to deal with in your Toowoomba home. Termite colonies can conceal themselves for long periods and when left untreated, the damage that termites can do is in some cases irreversible. The earlier you can detect a problem and have a professional team come in to solve it, the better condition your home is going to be left in by the end of the procedure.


Spiders don’t necessarily damage the foundations of your home like termites do, but it’s fair to say that nobody in the world wants an invasion of them! Living in this country especially, you can never be too sure whether a certain spider is venomous or not, so the best course of action is always to remove the problem before it becomes an even bigger one! One spider everybody know to look out for is the dreaded redback, which are particularly common in Toowoomba.


Fleas can run rampant in the hot months, especially if you have multiple pets that are providing the perfect vehicle for them to come in and out of the house. The problem with trying to deal with them on your own is that the eggs can lay dormant without a host for a considerable about of time. A professional clean sweep is the best way to solve the issue.


The classic cockroach is an ever-present threat to any home. Cockroaches are attracted to food, which is why they’re seen most often scuttling across the kitchen floors. Cockroaches tend to hide out of sight during the day, coming out at night to search for food and multiply quickly if not dealt with effectively. At Holloway & Co, we specialise in treating these harmful intruders.

Rats and Mice

With winter approaching, Toowoomba is likely to see an increase in the number of rats and mice trying to enter homes. Because of the colder weather, rats and mice will look to homes and houses as great places to keep warm and find shelter. Areas like the roof voids and wall cavities with insulation are some of their favourite places to hide out. Because rats and mice typically burrow, they can cause damage to your property by creating holes in your walls and gnawing at electrical wiring.
