Got an irrational fear of spiders or insects? Worried about termites ruining your new home? Wollongong has a range of experienced pest controllers who will make sure your home is free from pest infestations. Cockroaches are one of the most common pests around and ensuring your home is clear of excess rubbish and waste will lower the chance of an infestation. But if they are becoming a problem, get your local pest controller to perform a treatment in your home or business. Your cockroach problem will disappear. Pest controllers use a number of techniques and solutions to remove insects. Some treatments require you to vacate the building for a time while other simpler methods don’t. Having different options available, allows you to choose the most appropriate pest management method for your home. Exterminators will inspect your property to uncover the type of insect problem you have and will recommend a number of possible solutions. Possibly the most hated and feared of all household pests is the spider. Australia is home to more than 2400 spider species and some of the most dangerous can be found in the Wollongong area including funnel-web and redback spiders. If you notice signs of webbing around the home it can be an indicator of spider activity in your area. They are often a risk to pets and children and getting a spider treatment can prevent unfortunate accidents. Of course spiders and cockroaches aren’t the only insects that can invade your home. Ants, bed
bugs, fleas and a variety of other pests can infest and cause nightmares. While ants are mostly harmless, they tend to spoil food and can have a painful bite. However, bed bugs and fleas can have a bigger affect on you and your family’s health. Bed bugs will hide in bedding and feed on you while you sleep. Fleas also feed on human blood, but they commonly feed on cats and dogs as well. Both of these pests can cause health issues like asthma and infections, or transmit diseases to humans and parasites to pets. Domestic rats and mice can be an adorable addition to your home, but as wild animals they are a pest and can carry diseases into your home. They also bring a range of other issues like property damage, bad smells and can cause allergic reactions in some people. Of course, baiting and trapping rodents yourself is an easy option, but if the infestation is too large then getting an exterminator to remove them will ensure the best results. When spring and summer come around, bees, wasps and flies make their annual comeback. Pest controllers can clear out any hidden nests or hiding spots and remove the annoyances from your life. Simple steps like removing food scraps and waste can reduce the chance of pests. But if you find yourself with an insect or rodent problem, contact a local pest controller and have the experts remove the infestation from your home or business.
