Keeping your strata property pest-free in warm weather is imperative. A systematic approach can prevent costly damage and protect the health of homeowners and tenants. This is the season to be vigilant.
Flick Pest Control has over 100 years experience fighting Australian pests. We’re also part of the global Anticimex network, which allows us to tap into proven treatments from around the world. We keep the community safe using a proven and successful combination of local knowledge, great customer service and innovation.
Here are our three keys to ensuring that your strata property stays safe for residents.
Key #1: Book Rodent Control for Strata Properties
Rodents can affect strata residents living in units, townhouses, villas, and multi-storey buildings, damaging the property and impacting the health of residents. It’s important to maintain a pest-free and hygienic environment in common areas of a strata complex. The close proximity of residents in a strata complex means that a rodent infestation can spread quickly between each property causing costly damage. Keep your strata complex pest free with Flick.
Our team can target and monitor for rodents using SMART Digital Pest Control. SMART is an intuitive digital system that uses sensors to detect activity in real time. SMART also uses non-toxic catch boxes making them environmentally friendly and safe for residents and pets. We can tailor a solution to suit all premises.
Key #2: Watch Out for Termites!
Timber pests are active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and cause thousands of dollars in damage to properties every year.
Termites can affect the structure of the strata buildings and common property of a strata complex. It’s absolutely imperative to have annual termite inspections for a property and a prevention system in place.
Flick’s expert technicians are certified in termite detection and treatment. If we do find termites, we’ll devise a tailored treatment plan. That might be Termite Dusting, Baiting, Chemical Soil Treatment or a combination of all three.
Our Termite Interception & Baiting systems will also give you ongoing peace of mind that a property is protected.
Key #3: Schedule Regular Treatments for Common Pests
Spring and summer are always conducive to Australian pests – but particularly so with the deluge of rain we’ve had from ‘La Niña’. Cockroaches, rodents, ants, spiders and termites are all breeding more than ever, which means that you need to be extra careful that your strata property doesn’t fall prey to an infestation, suffer serious damage or trigger health concerns.
We recommend strata managers book a pest control treatment every 6 months to prevent common pests. For strata buildings, it’s crucial to treat the common areas such as the lobby, stairwell, gardens, communal bin areas and basements.
