Common Pests in Newcastle
Newcastle’s humid, oceanic climate makes it a great place for those who love the sea and sun. Unfortunately, the pleasant weather also makes it the preferred location for a range of household pests.
Newcastle’s humid climate makes it particularly easy for Termites to proliferate. Regular termite inspections are recommended every 6 to 12 months, depending on the amount of timber used to build the home and whether there has been a history of termite problems. Termite colonies are often located in timber wall frames and roofs. They eat timber frames as well as any cellulose or wood items in or near the home. A termite inspection by one of our experts can diagnose any problems and identify the best treatment for your property. A liquid soil treatment can help to protect your home before termite problems occur. In the uncommon event of a flood, the treatment should be repeated to ensure the property continues to enjoy maximum protection. When you’re considering buying a property, a pest inspection is vital. Termite inspections can save you thousands of dollars on repairing structural damage in a termite-infested property.
Despite their friendly appearance, you do not want a possum choosing your home for its dwelling place. Possums can be a headache to live with, and their droppings and urine can stain ceilings and represent a health risk. As native animals, possums are protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1980. Harming them in any manner or holding them captive without permission is prohibited. Breaking these rules can result in hefty fines. Flick’s licensed pest managers can inspect your property and install a trap so the possum can be caught without injury.
Spiders not only look frightening, they can also be downright dangerous. The Redback spider is one such example and is common around Newcastle. Our team can save your house from a spider infestation by administering an effective spider control treatment. In order to prevent spiders from proliferating and taking over your home, a Flick technician will treat danger spots including cracks and crevices, doorways, external window areas, lighting, around downpipes, under seating, along eaves, and through gardens. Get in touch with our Newcastle team at 13 14 40 for a spider control solution that works.
Like it or not, Newcastle is home to several varieties of cockroach including Australian, American and the smaller German cockroaches. The latter has a reputation for invading and ruining electrical appliances. Cockroach droppings can be a problem for those suffering from allergies and asthma. It is extremely difficult to eliminate a cockroach infestation without a professional eradication treatment. Our team’s methods include the use of cockroach bait gels as well as targeted insecticide application with a low toxic formulation. This is a cockroach control solution which is safe in the long term.
Rats & Mice
Newcastle’s warm climate provides rats and mice with a suitable breeding ground. These rodents are often found hiding out in roofs and wall cavities. They can cause serious damage to property caused by gnawing everything in their search for nesting sites and food. Rats and their droppings are also known to spread disease. To make matters worse, if you live in the vicinity of restaurants or food businesses, the risk of rat infestations is greatly increased. Flick Newcastle’s pest control team rids properties and homes of rats and mice. We also provide commercial rodent control solutions that can help restaurants and food businesses solve their rodent problems.
