A guide to our listing -

At Total Pest Management we keep an accurate record of the pests we have treated and the locations we have seen them. Overall Townsville and its suburbs are very similar in the type of pests and infestations we see. 

We have created this guide to demonstrate seasonal averages of pests we have treated in an area so residents can gauge the type of treatments they may require for their property.

The number of pests is very much guided by factors which may include weather, food availability, disturbance of ground and introduction of pests via transportation (they literally hitch a lift on something).
