Pest Control Tips for Families and Business Owners
Hello and welcome to my anti-pest blog. Hi, my name is Corrie. I live in an old home in the middle of nowhere. Due to the gaps in my home and the fact that we are virtually surrounded by nature, all kinds of pests have gotten into my home over the years. In addition to the usual suspects such as cockroaches, ants, termites and mice, we have also seen feral bees and small marsupials get into our home. Through trial and error and the occasional help of a professional pest removal specialist, we have learned a wealth of information about pest removal. Explore this blog and learn through my experiences. I think you will enjoy reading, but most of all, you will enjoy your pest-free house.
If you've just seen a termite and you are afraid of insects, you may be wondering which eradication method you should use. Ideally, you want the most effective extermination method possible with the least amount of insect contact. Here are some ideas to consider:
Tenting is an intensive process. The exterminator comes to your home, covers it with an airtight tent and fills the tent with chemicals. The chemicals penetrate every bit of exterior and interior wood in your home, killing every last termite.
Pest birds like pigeons, myna birds or English starlings can cause real problems for your home or garden. They're irritating, they damage plants and harass pets, and they leave unsightly droppings that can even cause damage to gutters. Some also carry diseases. Despite these problems, many homeowners don't like the idea of killing birds -- and indeed, killing them can often cause more problems than it solves. To rid your garden of these pests without killing them, try some of these humane pest control methods.
Ants in your home can be a real nuisance. If your home is being attacked by ants, it is important that you take action. Below are some top tips to help you beat an ant infestation in your home.
Locate and Seal the Entry Points
The first thing you should do is carry out an inspection of your home in order to locate the point at which the ants are entering the property.
It's safe to say that Australia has more than its fair share of unpleasant little creepy crawlies, and even the ones that aren't actively trying to kill you can still cause a world of problems. Black carpet beetles may not be particularly scary, but these voracious insects can rapidly cause serious damage to your rugs and carpets (as well as other soft furnishings), so black carpet beetle infestations must be dealt with swiftly and effectively to minimise the damage and expense that they can cause.
Termites are small, white-coloured insects that go for the wood in and around your home. They can do a lot of damage to your wood deck, patio, and roof by building tunnels and making a new home in your wood. If you notice signs of termites, you might not want to use harsh chemicals. Here are some natural treatments for getting rid of the termites for good.
