Scientific Pest Management has provided responsive and programmed pest management services across Australia for over 40 years.

We provide both audit and compliance services to building sites and properties for shopping centres, apartment and office buildings, commercial and residential assets. Our tailored services include but not limited to:

  • Understanding the building design to identify entry/hiding areas of pests
  • Understanding the chain of building suppliers
  • Building maintenance and exclusion practices for pest management purposes
  • Advice on good housekeeping and hygiene practices
  • Pest management inspections and monitoring
  • Physical control methods
  • Chemical control methods
  • Habitat/environment management

We do not provide the same strategy for each client – we actually understand your business, its demands, the premises along with the environment that you are surrounded by i.e. water, surrounding industries and businesses etc as no site is the same. We then tailor a pest management strategy around that. Also, your pest management strategy will evolve and change due to seasons along with different changes in the local environment.

How we deal with Pests

Our staff are highly trained to carry out an audit of your premises. They treat every business or company that they visit differently and tailor a programmed pest plan to suit the environmental factors, including seasons. We use technology as our helping hand to monitor and track incidents or to make changes to your bait stations in real-time. Your account manager and technician are then alerted in real-time in order to investigate any issues just in case any issues arise in between scheduled programmed maintenances.

You will then be provided with reports for your own purposes along with providing those reports to your customers.


Regulatory bodies and policies are implemented to ensure pest control for building and Property comply with the appropriate measures for prevention, detection and control of pests. Compliance with best practice standards and statutory obligations include, but not limited to:

  • AS 3660.1 – Termite Management - New building work
  • AS 3660.3 – 2000: Termite management – Assessment criteria for termite management systems
  • Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)
  • APVMA approved pesticides
  • Biocide regulations
  • Occupational Safety Act

Whilst structuring your pest management strategy, we will also understand your micro-business needs which includes legal, industry and business requirements that you need to achieve. For example, our practices meet Australian standards for pest management. We can also adopt a compliance relevant to a third party supplier as well.


It is essential that building and property managers comply with the necessary pest control regulations. Heavy fines and penalties apply if businesses do not adhere to local council and State Government regulations that ensure all areas are pest, vermin and contamination free. Some states require licensed pest control to ensure compliance with these regulations.
