Common Pests in Maryborough
Maryborough is considered termite prone areas with homes at high risk. Termites and borers can cause significant structural damage to any buildings constructed of timber and cellulose material. Early detection and preventative inspections carried out on the property can reduce the cost of repairs. Inspections should be performed every 3 to 12 months on Maryborough homes, depending on the amount of wood used in the construction of the home, and if there have been termite issues in the past. Following an inspection, the technician will provide a detailed treatment or prevention program and quotation; which may include recommendations for monitoring, baiting systems, chemical soil treatments and termite colony location and eradication. 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. You should engage one of our experts 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. Recent flooding has meant this should be repeated to maintain protection. When purchasing a property, one of the first things you should do is a pest inspection. A termite inspection by one of our professionals could save you thousands of dollars in repairs. Termite infestations can cause structural damage to a house and be expensive to repair if not picked up early on.
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 inside the roof 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 Maryborough. 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 down pipes, under seating and doorways. Treatment will keep the spiders from breeding and populating your home. Call our Maryborough team for great spider control at 07 5409 0600.
Australian and American cockroaches are a common, unpleasant sight in Maryborough, 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 Maryborough 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 Maryborough pest control team gets rid of rats and mice in houses, and also provides commercial rodent control suited for businesses such as restaurants.
