Terminating pests necessitates identifying them and using safer pesticides for effective bug control. Knowing ticks from termites helps alleviate long-term menace.
Managing pests require informed decisions to either opt for routine home solutions or stave them off professionally.
Clean: Keep edibles off the floor; wrap up food stored in larders and regularly clean up shelves.
Dry: Fix leaky taps and dry out leaky water puddles around homes, gardens and office corridors.
Fix: Seal off holes in walls, chipped doors and openings around windows, and cracked pipes.
Identifying mosquitoes from mites helps in preventing them to breed. Ticking off ticks is to avoid them from entering your homes by sprucing up your backyard regularly.
But, cyclical pest infestations warrant professional help. Termites are a nuisance and proliferate in almost all weathers conditions. The dry wood variants thrive in winter and also across subterranean climes.
Cockroaches, ants, chiggers, fleas, flies, mites, mosquitoes, meal moths, spiders, rats and mice can trigger long-term health hazards.
Termites control is essential as these are moisture sensitive bugs and if left untreated can escalate costs of replacing fitted furniture, kitchens and bathrooms.
Besides regular termite checks and follow-up inspections, Australian Standard 3660 prescribes soil treatment, termite baiting, dusting and foaming to make premises termite resistant.
With pests relocating within premises, spraying them down is definitely a futile solution.
