Common Pests in Townsville
Termites damage many properties in Townsville. Termite inspections every 3 to 12 months are advisable. Exactly how often depends on how much wood the house was constructed with and whether termites have been a problem in the past. Termite colonies are often found concealed in timber wall frames and roofs. These insects eat timber frames as well as anything made of wood or cellulose, whether in or near the house. One of our experts can organise a termite inspection and then follow up with the appropriate treatment for your property. A liquid perimeter treatment can prevent termites before they start causing trouble. If flooding occurs, the treatment should be repeated to ensure protection remains. A single termite inspection can be the key to saving thousands of dollars, as repairs to structural damage can be very costly.
No matter how cute you think possums are, don’t lose sight of the destruction they are capable of. Their urine and droppings can negatively affect your health. They sometimes have the habit of nibbling through electrical wiring, which homeowners then have to fix at a high price. Native to Australia, 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 Flick can make a house call and set a trap on your roof. Before you know it, the possum will have been caught.
The Redback spider is highly dangerous, and Townsville sees many of them. Our team can keep your home spider-free by administering a spider control treatment on your property. Cracks and crevices, doorways, lighting, external window seats, under seating and around downpipes will be treated by your Flick technician to ensure they do not proliferate and take over your home. Call our Townsville team for great spider control at 07 4766 2300.
Australian and American cockroaches are a common, unpleasant sight in Townsville, 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 Townsville 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. Flick’s Townsville pest control team gets rid of rats and mice in houses, and also provides commercial rodent control suited for businesses such as restaurants.
