Common Pests in Cairns
Cairns’s humid climate means Termites can thrive easily. Termite inspections are best performed every 3 to 12 months on homes in Cairns, depending on how much wood is in the structure of the home and whether it has fallen prey to termites in the past. Termite colonies often conceal themselves in timber wall frames and roofs, eating the frames and any wood or cellulose structures inside or just outside the house. One of our experts can perform a thorough termite inspection on your property and then treat it accordingly. We recommend treating your property with a liquid perimeter treatment to prevent termite problems from getting out of hand. If flooding occurs, the treatment should be reapplied to ensure the home remains protected. When buying property, a pest inspection is key to saving yourself from having to pay for costly repairs. A termite inspection can prevent termite infestations from causing structural damage to your home, which is very expensive to repair.
Despite their friendly appearance, possums are called pests for a reason. If they decide to live on your property, beware of their droppings and urine, which can damage your health. These animals sometimes chew through electrical wiring, which costs a lot to rectify. Possums are native animals and the Nature Conservation Act 1992 forbids anyone from harming a possum in any way, or keeping one without authorisation from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment. Anyone found guilty of breaching these rules will be fined heavily. A licensed pest manager from Flick can visit your property, install a trap on your roof and catch the intruding possum.
The deadly Redback spider is common in Cairns and the surrounding areas. Our team’s spider control treatment can keep these arachnids out of your home. A Flick technician will treat lighting, doorways, cracks and crevices, external window areas, under seating and around down pipes to stop spiders from proliferating in your home. Call our Cairns team for spider control for your home at 07 4049 1900.
Australian and American cockroaches are a painfully common sight in hot and humid Cairns. The smaller German cockroach is often found infesting electrical appliances. Cockroach droppings can be anathema to those with asthma and allergies. Without a proper fumigation treatment, cockroach problems are stubborn and difficult to eliminate. Our team’s cockroach eradication method involves the use of cockroach bait gels in tandem with low toxic formulations of pesticide fumigation. This method is a safe way to combat cockroaches in the long term.
Rats & Mice
Cairns’s tropical climate makes it a hotbed of rats and mice, which often hide in the roofs and wall cavities of houses. Rats can destroy everything they chew through as they search for food and nesting sites. Their droppings can also pose health hazards. If you live close to restaurants and other food businesses, your risk of rat infestations escalates. Flick’s Cairns pest control team rids houses of rats and mice and also provides commercial rodent control aimed at restaurants and other food businesses.
