Yearly Pest Control
Having your pest control done once a year plays a big part in keeping cockroaches, silverfish, spiders and ants out of your home. Using a licenced pest control company will ensure you get the right advice and environmentally friendly products used within your home.
Dealing with Cockroaches
With cockroaches, it’s best not the let them become established within our homes. Getting rid of cockroaches is a lot harder than preventing them, so a regular cockroach treatment will keep them at bay. A tell-tale sign of a cockroach problem is a bad odour. An experienced pest controller can pick this up as soon as they walk into a house. With an infestation, a back-up treatment and inspection is required in order to eliminate the problem. Some rules set out by the technician will have to be followed to successfully remove cockroaches from your home.
The same goes for other insects that may have become a nuisance in and around the home. Silverfish are treated with the same insecticide as that used for cockroaches, but the areas to be sprayed would be in bedroom cupboards and book cases. In some areas where a spray can’t be used. The use of a powder with an insecticide in it would be used. Silverfish can damage books as well as clothes. Early detection is important they can breed at a high rate and should be treated by a professional pest control company as soon as possible.
Eliminating Spiders and Ants
Spiders and ants are a problem for home owners on the inside and outside. Ants are active pretty much all day and night, but spiders tend to hide during day light hours. Spiders will spin a web and wait for the prey to get caught. Meanwhile, ants will constantly go looking for food and they will go just about anywhere to find it. When dealing with an ant problem, it’s important to keep sugar and foods in closed containers. This will help to eliminate ants from entering a home.
Environmentally Friendly Pest Control Treatment
A professional pest control company would use sprays that are odourless and environmentally friendly. This is better for all occupants that live in the house and is also better for the environment. There are also rules and regulations set out by Queensland health that all pest control companies have to abide by.
