Common Household Pests

With any of Flick’s Home Protection Plans, customers can rest assured that their homes are shielded against some of the most common household pests. Our team of professionals is committed to providing effective pest control solutions and ensuring the comfort and safety of your living environment.


There are several species of ants commonly found in Australian homes, including the black house ant, white-footed house ant, and Argentine ant.

The black house ant, also known as the “little black ant,” is one of the most prevalent species in Australia. These ants are small and dark in colour, typically measuring around 2-3mm in length. They are attracted to sweet foods and are commonly found in kitchens and pantries.

The white-footed house ant, on the other hand, features pale-coloured legs and a dark body. These ants are slightly larger than the black house ant, reaching lengths of up to 4mm. They are also attracted to sugary substances and can frequently be found in the kitchen or bathroom.

The Argentine ant, a non-native species, is known for its ability to form large colonies that can span vast areas. These ants are light to dark brown in colour and vary in size from 2-4mm. They are highly active during the warmer months and are commonly found in gardens, around buildings, and near food sources.

During the warmer months, these species of ants exhibit increased activity levels. They become more active in search of food and shelter, as they have a higher demand for resources. It is important to take preventive measures to discourage these ants from entering your home during this time by keeping your kitchen clean, sealing any cracks or openings, and storing food in airtight containers.


Cockroaches found in Australian homes display certain characteristics and behaviours that contribute to their resilience and preferred environments. These pests are incredibly resilient, capable of surviving in a variety of conditions, making them a common household nuisance. They can withstand extreme temperatures, starvation for weeks, and even nuclear radiation.

Cockroaches are particularly fond of warm, dark, and moist environments. They are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements where there is ample access to food, water, and hiding places. These insects are nocturnal and will scuttle away when exposed to light, making it difficult to spot them during the day.

Apart from being a nuisance, cockroaches also present potential health risks. They are known carriers of bacteria, pathogens, and allergens that can contaminate food and surfaces. Cockroach debris, such as droppings and shed body parts, can trigger allergic reactions and exacerbate asthma symptoms, especially in children.

Controlling cockroaches in Australia requires specific strategies tailored to the species commonly found in the area. The German cockroach, for example, requires targeted baits and sprays in infested areas. Conversely, the American cockroach benefits from a comprehensive approach, including habitat modification, sealing entry points, and using insecticides selectively.


Spiders are fascinating creatures, playing an important role in the ecosystem by controlling the population of other insects. However, they can also pose threats to humans, making it crucial to address and understand these risks. In Australia, a country known for its diverse wildlife, several spider species inhabit its diverse landscapes.

One of the most notorious spiders in Australia is the redback spider (Latrodectus hasseltii). With its distinct hourglass-shaped red mark on the black abdomen, it is known for its venomous bite. Another species, the black house spider (Badumna insignis), commonly found in residential areas, may cause painful bites that often result in local swelling and discomfort.

Proper identification of spider species is essential for determining the risks associated with them. Misidentification can lead to unnecessary fear or negligent handling, which may result in bites or injuries. Therefore, it is crucial to seek professional assistance from pest control experts or local authorities when dealing with spider infestations.

Dealing with Extensive Pests

Flick’s Gold Home Protection Plan covers a wide range of pests, including caterpillars, crickets, earwigs, fleas, lice, millipedes, moths, stored product pests, rodents, slaters, ticks, and wasps. This comprehensive plan ensures that homeowners can deal with extensive pest infestations effectively.

To assess the extent of the infestation and determine the most effective method of elimination, our pest control technicians first conduct a thorough inspection of the affected areas. Once the assessment is complete, the next step is to choose the most effective method of elimination. This may involve the use of chemical treatments, traps, baits, or physical removal, depending on the specific pest and its behaviour.

Dealing with extensive pest infestations can be overwhelming, but with a comprehensive plan like Flick’s Gold Home Protection Plan, homeowners can ensure a pest-free and safe living environment.
