It goes without saying – pests in the home can be a serious nuisance. What makes it even worse is not knowing what the exact issue is.
Our pest control Brisbane service is a comprehensive solution that ensures your home remains pest-free, but employing preventative measures is always a good idea.
Finding signs of pests can be difficult, but we have some expert tips to help!
Here are some of the most common indications that pests are hiding in your home.
If you’ve noticed a musty, oily odour in your home, this is a good sign that you may have cockroaches beneath the floorboards (or even somewhere more visible!). If you can smell ammonia odour, there’s a good chance you may have rats or mice. Think you’ve got a problem? Our pest control services will get rid of cockroaches or rats pronto!
If you’ve spotted “coffee ground” looking dust around the home – this is a sign of cockroach activity. The coffee ground looking leavings are actually cockroach faecal matter and if you notice it, then it’s time to call in the pest control!
3. Holes or dust
If you’ve noticed any unusual holes on the outside of the home, tunnels through wood or unusual wood dust, termites may be the problem. Papery or hollow sounding wood and clicking sounds from within the wall are all tell-tale signs of termites.
4. Pantry problems
If you have found moths in the pantry this may be a sign you have weevils. Don’t worry too much – weevils aren’t unsafe to consume – but they can be an annoying thing to have in the house. Our pest control Brisbane service can help eradicate the issue for you, but a good prevention method is to ensure that food (especially cereals and flours) are left in air-tight containers, rather than in an open packet.
