Central Coast Pests
The humidity on the Central Coast makes it a breeding ground for termites or white ants, and as such it is a good idea to have termite inspections conducted on a regular basis every 3 to 12 months, depending on how much wood there is in the building and whether there have been previous termite issues.
According to independent surveys, about 34,000 homes in Australia are infested by termites each year. The average cost households spend to rectify termite damage is a hefty $10,000.
Termites, or white ants as they are sometimes called, threaten households all over mainland Australia, and buildings situated in almost every area run the risk of infestation. That is why you cannot find insurance providing coverage for termite damage.
Termite colonies frequently hide in wall frames and roofs, eating timber frames and other structures or objects made of wood or cellulose in or close to the home. An inspection conducted by an expert can identify the problems and pinpoint the most suitable treatment for your situation.
Flick Pest Control Central Coast provide several termite protection packages and white ant treatments tailored to your individual situations, all of which respect the strict rules of Australian Standard AS 3660.2 – Termite Management.
Inspecting for and Removing Possums
Buildings and roof voids often attract possums due to the shelter, warmth, water and nearby food sources they provide. As they are a protected species in Australia, there are many stringent rules governing the treatment of possums. Hurting or killing a possum is illegal and you can be heavily fined for doing so.
Here at Flick, we do not catch or trap these creatures. They are territorial and must be released within a 50 metre radius of where they are found. This means it is crucial to address vulnerabilities in your structure and seal entry points to prevent the possums from returning.
How We Can Help
A Flick pest control expert will first undertake a careful inspection of your property and then recommend the most effective and most value-for-money option for your situation. On occasion, there may be more than one treatment option open to you.
Some measures might include excluding the possums from your home by proofing the property and surrounding area. In many circumstances, deterrents can discourage possums from returning once they have been removed.
A trapping system is another possibility. Trapping is tricky as great care must be taken to ensure possums are not harmed, so this option tends to be used as a last resort.
The red back spider is one of Australia’s most feared creepy crawlies. While red back spiders can be found in all Central Coast areas and the surrounds, they are rare in Tasmania due to the cold. The species is one of just three identified as hazardous spiders resident in Sydney. The other two dangerous species are the funnel web spider and the white tail spider, although the latter is rarer and less dangerous.
What To Do With Our Advice
