Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

There may not be many residential properties in Blantyre, but its environment may attract unwanted insects. Here are some of the pests to watch out for in Blantyre.

Cockroach Control in Blantyre

Cockroaches are common household pests and are active at night. They are also more active during the warmer months. However, their breeding period is during the cooler months. This means residential and commercial property are at risk for cockroach infestation at any time of the year.

Some cockroaches, such as the German Cockroach, may require several treatments, to break the breeding cycle of the infestation. In general, cockroaches are difficult to kill because survive without a head for a week and survive around 40 minutes under water. The best way to deal with a serious cockroach infestation is by hiring a professional exterminator.

Ant Control

Another common household pests, ants can be active all-year round. They are drawn into residential and commercial spaces by the presence of food and water. Because of their small size, they can fit through any crevice or gap.

The sight of ants is unpleasant. They can spoil food and invade wall and roof voids, and electrical equipment. While they don’t spread diseases, they can get dirt and other unhygienic substances inside the house. Ants also bite, with some species causing severe pain.

Treatments for ants can be challenging because there are more than 12,00 species of ants and each treatment is different.

Wasp Control

Wasps are intimidating and frightening because they can inflict severe pain through their bite. A wasp sting can also cause allergic reactions in some people. They build larges nests that look unpleasant and inconvenient. Wasp control is difficult and dangerous, which is why a professional pest control service is recommended.

Rodent Control in Blantyre

Mice and rats are small that they can slip through a home or commercial building through small cracks and crevices. In particular, mice can contract their bodies and squeeze through a crack as small as 6mm in diameter. This size compared to a pencil.

Once they get inside, rodents can cause serious damage to furniture and fixtures around the home, including walls, window frames, and electric cables. They have developed an ability to thrive in urban environments. In residential properties, they live in wall cavities, cupboards, boxes, furniture and in gardens. Rodents also target commercial properties, especially those with waste and open pastures.

Rodents also carry diseases, making them a health risk for humans and pets. These diseases include leptospirosis, rickettsial diseases, typhus and trichinosis.

Spider Control in Blantyre

Australia is home to thousands of species of spiders, but most of them are harmless. However, even the harmless ones can cause discomfort in most people as they leave cobwebs and unsightly nests around the house.

A fear of spider is real for many people, which is another reason to act if spider(s) is spotted in the home. With so many types of spiders, it’s difficult for ordinary people to identify them. The safest and most effective way to deal with spider infestation is by hiring a professional pest control service.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are one of the deadliest pests out there as they can transmit various diseases through biting and sharing of blood. These diseases include Barmah Forest Virus, Dengue, Malaria, Zika, and more. Even without the risk of diseases, a mosquito is quite uncomfortable as it is accompanied by pain, and redness and swelling on the bite area.

Thanks to our hot summers and various breeding conditions that mosquitoes prefer, treating mosquitoes needs a multi-pronged approach. Call professional exterminators who will visit your property, find the breeding sites and apply the property treatment and preventive solutions.

Termite Control in Blantyre

Termites, like ants, are social insects that live in large colonies. They are sometimes called white ants because of their resemblance with ants. However, these two pests have little in common from an evolutionary perspective. In truth, termites are more closely related with cockroaches.

Termites are active 24/7 throughout the year. They eat wood and the cellulose contained in paper and timber-based products. The timber is usually eaten from the inside out, leaving a paper-thin shell outside. On residential properties, termites may feed on finished wood such as door frames, skirting boards, subfloor timbers and framing.

If you suspect a termite infestation in your property, have a timber pest inspection done by a licensed pest control service, who should provide you with a comprehensive report completed with a recommended treatment and future control methods.

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Scenic Rim area, where Blantyre is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Blantyre is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.

The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Blantyre.

  • A coastal environment like Wynnum is prone to termite and vermin attacks.

  • The number one thing that attracts termites is water or moisture. It is almost a guarantee that if a home has water leakage problems, it will soon be invaded by termites, if it hasn’t been already.

  • Damage to homes, whether made from weatherboard, is likely if termites, or white ants, are left unchecked.
