Common Pests in Adelaide
Despite the dry weather, Adelaide’s wet winters make termites a very real threat. Ideally, termite inspections should be carried out on homes every 12 months, the actual duration depending on how much wood the home is made of, and whether it has a history of termite problems. Termite colonies often proliferate in roofs and wall frames made of timber. These insects eat away at the timber frames, as well as any other items made out of wood or cellulose. A termite inspection is necessary before carrying out the actual treatment on the property. In addition, it is advisable to administer a liquid perimeter treatment to the property in order to prevent termite issues from escalating.
If flooding has recently occurred, the treatment should be repeated. Before buying a new house, a professional pest inspection is essential in order to prevent the need to spend thousands of dollars trying to repair structures damaged by termite infestations. Serious structural damage can be extremely costly to repair if termite infestations are not identified and eradicated early on.
Possums may look adorable, but they can be a real nuisance if they infiltrate your home. As well as sleepless nights as possum families run through your roof, Possum urine and droppings can be hazardous to health. Possums in South Australia are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, so harming them can result in you being made to pay heavy fines. A licensed pest manager from Flick can make a house call, set a trap on the roof of your home and catch the possum.
Arachnids such as the venomous Redback spider not only look scary, they are also dangerous to humans. Spider control treatment is often necessary to keep them at bay and off your property. A qualified Flick technician can treat the danger zones in your home including cracks and crevices, lighting, doorways, external window areas, under seating and around down pipes. Such treatment can prevent spiders from proliferating and overrunning your home.
Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.
Rats & Mice
The relative warmth of Adelaide’s climates makes it an attractive environment for rats and mice to thrive, but these pests often infiltrate homes and set up camp in wall cavities and roofs. They can wreak havoc on your property as they chew through structures and furniture in hopes of locating food and sites for nesting. Their droppings can also cause myriad health problems. If you live close to restaurants or any other businesses related to food, you should be particularly wary of rat infestations. Flicks Adelaide’s pest control team inspects homes for rats and mice. We also supply commercial rodent control solutions suited to restaurants and similar businesses.
