How To Repel Common Spring Pests

Spring is a great time in Australia, and it is also the season for many common pests and bugs to begin propagating, as they do every single year. There are all kinds of insects and small animals that like to set up home in our abodes, and with that in mind, here are some of the most common, along with recommended action to remove them from your property.



Spiders
First on our list, as this is the most dangerous insect that Australian people could encounter, and should you think you have a spider in your home, search online for affordable pest control service and let the professionals handle it. Always check your shoes before putting them on and be careful when putting your hand into any dark corner, as they could be anywhere. While not all are dangerous, there are deadly spiders about.

Rodents
Rats and mice are never far from a reliable food source and if they have set up home on your property, you might be able to catch a few with traditional traps, but the best way to remove them all is to call in a pest control company. If you make sure that your kitchen is always spotless, this will deter rodents and in the event you notice droppings, call in a pest control specialist, as rodents are carriers of disease.

Termites
Referred to as the "swarming season" for most species of subterranean termites. These pests can be found throughout the country, especially in urban areas. If your floors, ceilings and even walls sag, your home may have an infestation. It is best to let a professional handle them. You may call termite control Maroochydore has, if you happen to live nearby, as they are among the best to handle such problem.

Ants
Whether red or black, ants can quickly colonise your kitchen and the colony will continue to expand until you take action, and the professional pest control officer has the know-how and the equipment to exterminate the nest and also take precautions to see they never return.

Cockroaches
These hardy little creatures have been around for 50 million years and they are very hard to remove once they set up home. They are dirty creatures that harbour bacteria and disease. Handling them are best left to the pest control company. Like most other pests, cockroaches are always looking for a location with food at hand, so keeping a spotless kitchen is a good move, plus always clean under appliances and in those hard to reach corners.

Bees, Wasps & Hornets
These flying insects like to nest in concealed corners and the eaves of a roof are often ideal, as well as nesting in trees. In the event you notice an abnormal amount of bees or wasps, take a look at where they seem to be massing, as this would likely be a nesting site, and if you do find a nest, keep pets and children away from the area and call in a pest control firm, who can safely remove the insects. The pest control officer would try to rehome a bee's nest in a suitable location nearby, but wasps and hornets are professionally exterminated. For further reading on how to deal with a wasp nest, a quick search on Google should lead you to related articles.

As you can see, there are quite a number of insects and small animals that could decide to make your home their home, and the best solution is always to call in the professionals, as they can safely remove the threat.
