Common Pests in Gosford
The humidity in Gosford during the summer season 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 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.
We 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.
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.
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.
The red back spider is one of Australia’s most feared creepy crawlies. While red back spiders can be found across the Gosford area and the surrounds. The species is one of just three identified as hazardous spiders resident in New South Wales. The other two dangerous species are the funnel web spider and the white tail spider, although the latter is rarer and less dangerous.
How to avoid spiders:
- Always use gloves when gardening or coming into contact with soil.
- Footwear should always be sensible, especially in the night.
- Watch out for spiders that live on the ground, particularly after undertaking landscaping or excavating activities.
- Do not leave toys unattended overnight as they might become nesting grounds for spiders.
