Common Pests in Darwin
Darwin and the Northern Territory in general are termite prone areas with homes at high risk of infestation. Termites and borers can cause significant structural damage to buildings constructed of timber and cellulose material. Early detection by conducting preventative inspections on the property can reduce the cost of repairs. Specialising in Termite control, Flick is Darwin’s only authorised Termguard Termite Reticulation System provider. Termite inspections should be performed on homes every 3 to 12 months, depending on the amount of wood used in construction, and if there has been white and issues in the past. Termite colonies can be found hidden in timber wall frames and roofs. They eat the timber frames and any wood or cellulose found in and around your house. Subterranean termites can be difficult to detect in the early stages of infestation and require an expert to perform a termite inspection and subsequent treatment on your home. It’s a good idea to prevent termites with a liquid perimeter treatment to protect your home before they become a problem. 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 structural damage caused by termite infestations. Serious structural damage can be extremely expensive to repair if termites are not identified and eradicated early on.
Whether it is the famous Redback spider or the more insidious White Tailed spider, our team can come out and perform a spider control treatment to keep them out of your home. Your Flick technician will treat cracks and crevices, under seating, around down pipes, lighting, doorways, as well as external window areas. This will prevent them increasing in number and invading your home. Call our Darwin team for effective spider control to protect your home on 08 8914 1600.
Both Australian and American cockroaches are common in Darwin as well as the smaller German cockroach which likes to invade electrical appliances. The Brown Banded cockroach is also quite prevalent and is difficult to kill with off the shelf cockroach sprays as they are very resilient and are prolific breeders. Our team uses a combination of cockroach bait gels and low toxic formulations of pesticide fumigation. This provides a safe long-term cockroach control solution.
Rats & Mice
Rats thrive in tropical climates and are commonly found in Darwin homes especially those close to the coast, living in roofs and wall cavities. Rats can cause an enormous amount of damage as they chew through everything looking for food and nesting sites, and leave droppings that can be a health hazard. Mice are also a large problem eating through electrical cords, clothing, and contaminating food which leads to food poisoning. If your house is within a few blocks of restaurants or other food related businesses, there is a higher risk of rat infestations. Flicks Darwin pest control team deals with both rats and mice in the home as well as provide commercial rodent control for restaurants and related businesses.
