Protecting your Home

For all homeowners, the idea of their homes being overrun by pests is a particularly scary one. The problem is that various pests, once established, can be difficult to eradicate completely. This, in turn, can cause problems for you and your family.

Dangers Associated with Pests in the Home

Pests in the home can be dangerous to both the health of your family and the structure of your home. It’s also not just those pests that are easy to see that are a problem. Most pests prefer a dark environment where they have easy access to food and are less likely to be disturbed. For this reason, most pests come out at night when you are sleeping. Some pests, like termites, are not even discovered until the problem is severe.

The typical pests in the home, cockroaches, rats, etc. all carry disease and can cause some serious illness for your family. In addition, they can cost you some serious money – a pest’s idea of food is very different from our own – they can cause damage to clothing, food, books and even walls. The most dangerous of all pests in the Australian home is the termite – these can cause serious structural damage before you even become aware of them.

What Can you Do?

The best way to keep your home pest-free is to stay one step ahead of the pests. All the common-sense rules apply – make sure that food is inaccessible and that there are fewer nooks and crannies in which the pest can hide.

The next step would be to call in an expert pest control company a minimum of once a year to do a thorough pest inspection. You should also call them in if you feel that a problem may be developing. They will not only be on the lookout for pests but will also be able to tell you which areas of your home are vulnerable. They will check for holes and cracks in the exterior and give advice on sealing these up.

They will quickly identify any problem you have and also the extent of the problem and present you with a strategy for eradicating it. They have specialised equipment that allows them to pick up problems not visible to the naked eye, and treat them accordingly.

Treatment options will vary according to the type of pest and the extent of the problem. The pest control inspector will also suggest a programme to prevent a recurrence in the future. This is likely to include baiting and monitoring and follow-up inspections.

All of the inspector’s findings and recommendations will be presented to you in a comprehensive report allowing you to make an informed decision for the future.
