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 mining and offshore oil sites. Our tailored services include but not limited to:

  • Understanding the mining site and/or oil rig
  • Understand the area, design and space to identify entry/hiding or breeding areas of pests
  • Understand storage facilities, including plant and equipment of how pests can infiltrate a site or migrate from (from moving plant and equipment)
  • How new plant and equipment, personnel and other moving objects come to contact with the site
  • 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 mining site along with the environment that you are surrounded by i.e. water, natural habitat, 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.

Pests commonly found within the Mining & Oil Industry

There are many pests that come into contact with mining or offshore oil sites. Common pests include cockroach infestation stemming from local food deliveries, ants, spiders, rodents and bed bugs, as well as any other pest issue that might arise

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

How we deal with Pests

Our staff are highly trained to carry out an audit of your mining or offshore oil rig. They treat every 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.

Standards and Compliance

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 but we can also adhere to any standard and compliance that you wish us to achieve for you.

Our Quality Assurance and Formal Accreditations

Scientific Pest & Vegetation Management operates a Quality system in accordance and compliance with AS/NZS ISO 9001 with formal accreditation programmed for the near future. Left is the necessary information.
