During the COVID-19 lockdown, most of us have focused on keeping the virus from invading our homes. Wearing masks, wearing gloves, frequent hand-washing, social distancing, and regular use of sanitisers have all become some part of the new normal. While keeping our families safe from COVID-19 is undoubtedly a priority, it is essential to continue to protect them from common pests that can wreak havoc in your home, whether through the threat of disease, contaminating food supplies, or possibly causing destruction.

You may have noticed more pests in your home since the lockdown started. This is probably not in your imagination. Many pests, particularly rodents, stayed in commercial areas where they had easy, low-risk access to food in sources such as dumpsters. However, as the lockdown has continued, these low-risk areas became less hospitable to them. Rodent populations have been starving, which even led to a mass exodus in some commercial spaces. While roaming bands of aggressive and hungry rats have not yet been a wide-scale problem in our area, the reality is that rats, mice, and even insects have been quietly moving from the commercial areas where they previously lived and into homes. Initially difficult to detect, by the time you begin to notice signs of these pests or even see them yourself, you could have a substantial pest problem.

Fortunately, there is no pest problem significant enough that Flick cannot provide you with a solution. We offer safe, environmentally friendly, non-toxic materials that are safe to use around your pets and your family, while still targeting the pest population in your home.

As with all of our pest control services, our residential services begin with a thorough inspection. We look for areas where pests can invade and can provide exclusion services or give you instructions on how to exclude potential invaders. Flick can treat your home to target existing insect pest populations and prevent future infestations. We also include follow-up, so that we can tailor our services to your evolving needs during the lockdown. Our recently launched Home Protection Plans offer you four different pest control plans to choose from and the flexibility with scheduled monthly payments. To find out more call 1300 354 254.
