Termites are a destructive pest that can wreak havoc on your property in a very short amount of time. Not only can they cause thousands of dollars in damage, but they can contribute to the structural instability of your home, and they can do this all without you even knowing they’re there.
Mice are common pests here in Australia, and they can bring with them a host of diseases and bacteria, making them more dangerous to you and your family than you would expect based on their tiny stature. They can also cause some serious damage to your property.
Spiders are one of the most common fears for people around the world. Here in Australia, most of our spiders are harmless to humans, although there are some that are incredibly dangerous. Funnel web spiders, red backs and tarantulas can all pose a threat to you, your children and your pets, so it is important to get rid of these species right away.
It only takes a pair of mice to lead to a full blown infestation. Mice are able to give birth as soon as two months after they are born (which is about 20 days after the parents mate), and can breed up to ten times a year. They are rodent vermin known to carry disease, eat and infect food, and destroy the home.
Possums are quite common here in Australia, and they can cause serious damage to your home if they take up residence in your roof or attic. They are notoriously crafty and difficult to get rid of, and they are protected in New South Wales. You’ll need to carefully follow the requirements set out by the state regarding their removal to avoid having to pay hefty fines and penalties.
Cockroaches are a problem for every household at some point. Understanding this problem and finding solutions can be difficult though. Why? Well, asking your family, friends or neighbours about cockroaches will mean telling them you have cockroaches. Finding out about cockroaches will mean your family, friends or neighbours admitting to having had cockroaches. Most people will run a mile to avoid that conversation!
