Common Pests in Gladstone
Termites are prevalent in Gladstone, and homeowners should schedule termite inspections every 3 to 12 months, depending on the volume of wood the house is made of and whether there have been problems with termites prior.
Termite colonies are often clustered in timber wall frames and roofs, and they devour the timber frames together with any wood or cellulose objects in the house. One of our pest control experts can perform a full termite inspection on your property, and then administer treatment to your house.
It is advisable to deter termites with a liquid perimeter treatment before they become a problem. If there has been recent flooding, repeat the treatment to ensure protection is maintained.
When buying property, a pest inspection is critical. A termite inspection conducted by a Flick professional can save you a lot of money in repairs. The structural damage that termite infestations can cause is very costly to repair if not halted early on.
They may look like friendly critters, but you don't want to share your home with a possum. Not only are their droppings and urine hazardous to health, they also enjoy chewing through electrical wiring, at a great cost to the owner of the property.
Possums are classified as native Australian animals, and the Nature Conservation Act 1992 protects them. You are not permitted to harm them or keep them without consent from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment. Break the rules and you might find yourself paying hefty fines. One of Flick's licensed pest managers can visit your home, set a trap on your roof and ensnare the guilty possum.
The dangerous Redback spider makes frequent appearances in Gladstone. Have our team visit your house to administer a spider control treatment, effectively keeping these deadly spiders out of your home.
Your Flick technician will treat external window areas, lighting, cracks and crevices, around down pipes, under seating and doorways. Treatment will keep the spiders from breeding and populating your home.
Call our Gladstone team for spider control that works at 07 4807 6934.
Australian and American cockroaches are a common sight in Gladstone , as is the smaller German variety, which has the habit of invading electrical appliances. Cockroach droppings can be terrible for people with asthma or allergies. Cockroaches are extremely difficult to get rid of unless a proper fumigation treatment is used.
At Flick, we use cockroach bait gels together with a lox toxic formulation of pesticide fumigation, a cockroach control method that is safe in the long term.
Rats & Mice
Rats and mice love subtropical climates like Gladstone's. These rodents often make their homes in roofs and wall cavities, and can wreak havoc on a property by gnawing their way through everything in search of food and nesting sites and scattering droppings that constitute a health hazard.
If your home is situated near restaurants or other businesses where food is handled, watch out for rat infestations as your risk is particularly high.
Flick's Gladstone pest control team gets rid of rats and mice in houses, and also provides commercial rodent control for F&B businesses and other related establishments.
