Common Pests in Mareeba
Mareeba’s humid climate means termites can thrive easily. Termite inspections are best performed every 3 to 12 months on homes in Mareeba, 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 of 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 essential 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.
Possums are a beautiful part of Australia’s native wildlife, but they are able to pose a threat to your property and to themselves. Their urine and droppings can negatively affect your health. They also expose electrical wires, and can often become stuck within the roof cavity of your home. 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 APC and Flick can make a house call and set a trap on your roof. Before you know it, the possum will have been caught, temporarily relocated, and then set free again. The possum will be returned to your area, but we will provide homes for the possums, so they don’t have to find shelter in your home.
The dangerous Redback spider makes frequent appearances in Mareeba. Have our team visit your house to administer a spider control treatment, effectively keeping these deadly spiders out of your home. Your technician will treat external window areas, lighting, cracks, and crevices, around downpipes, under seating and doorways. Treatment will keep the spiders from breeding and populating within your home. Call our Mareeba team for great spider control at 07 4092 5500.
Australian and American cockroaches are a common, unpleasant sight in Mareeba, while smaller German cockroaches have a penchant for invading electrical appliances. Cockroach droppings can harm those who suffer from allergies or asthma. A proper fumigation treatment is usually needed to eradicate cockroaches. 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 Mareeba 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 Mareeba pest control team gets rid of rats and mice in houses, and also provides commercial rodent control suited for businesses such as restaurants.
