Common Pests in Bowen
Termites are prevalent in Bowen, and homeowners should schedule termite inspections every 3 to 12 months, depending on the volume of wood the house is made of and whether there have been problems with termites prior. Termite colonies are often clustered in timber wall frames and roofs, and they devour the timber frames together with any wood or cellulose objects in the house. One of our pest control experts can perform a full termite inspection on your property, and then administer treatment to your house. It is advisable to deter termites with a liquid perimeter treatment before they become a problem. If there has been recent flooding, repeat the treatment to ensure protection is maintained. When buying property, a pest inspection is critical. A termite inspection conducted by an APC and Flick professional can save you a lot of money on repairs. The structural damage that termite infestations can cause is very costly to repair if not halted early on.
No matter how cute you think possums are, don’t lose sight of the destruction they are capable of. Their urine and droppings can negatively affect your health. They sometimes have the habit of nibbling through electrical wiring, which homeowners then have to fix at a high price. Native to Australia, these animals are protected by the Nature Conservation Act 1992. Harming them in any way is forbidden, as is keeping them without permission from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment. Break these rules and you could find yourself slapped with a very heavy fine. A licensed pest manager from Flick can make a house call and set a trap on your roof. Before you know it, the possum will have been caught.
The Redback spider is highly dangerous, and Bowen sees many of them. Our team can keep your home spider-free by administering a spider control treatment on your property. Cracks and crevices, doorways, lighting, external window seats, under seating and around downpipes will be treated by your Flick technician to ensure they do not proliferate and take over your home.
Australian and American cockroaches are a common sight in Bowen, as is the smaller German variety, which has the habit of invading electrical appliances. Cockroach droppings can be terrible for people with asthma or allergies. Cockroaches are extremely difficult to get rid of unless a proper fumigation treatment is used. Our team combines cockroach bait gels with low toxic formulations of pesticide fumigation to control cockroaches in a manner that’s safe in the long run.
Rats & Mice
The warm weather of Bowen makes it easy for rats and mice to survive. These rodents are often spotted in roofs and wall cavities, and the amount of havoc they wreak is considerable when they gnaw their way through everything in a home in their quest for food and nesting sites. Their droppings can also cause health problems. If you are located close to restaurants or other businesses that work with food, your risk of rat infestations is higher. Our pest control team gets rid of rats and mice in houses, and also provides commercial rodent control suited for businesses such as restaurants.
