Common Pests in Port Stephens
It is recommended that pest inspections in the Port Stephens region be carried out every 3 to 12 months. The exact frequency depends on how much wood the property contains, and whether it has a history of termite problems. Port Stephens is a high risk area when it comes to termites. Termites can severely damage the structure of a building made of cellulose or timber. It is crucial to detect termites through preventative screening, as catching a termite problem early can drastically lower repair costs.
Termite colonies often hide in roofs and timber wall frames. They eat the timber frames as well as any wood or cellulose material in or near the building.
The humidity in Port Stephen makes it easy for termites and white ants to proliferate. Termite inspections should be carried out every 3 to 12 months, varying according to the amount of wood in the home and whether there have been prior run-ins with termites.
A pest control professional from Flick can inspect your home and then prescribe the best treatment for your situation.
A liquid perimeter treatment when applied to your building can be highly effective at deterring termites. After a flood, it is important to re-administer the treatment in order to ensure protection does not lapse.
It is a good idea to have a property inspected for pests before a purchase, as a professional termite inspection can rescue you from having to lose thousands of dollars repairing the property later. Termite-inflicted structural damage can be very expensive to rectify.
Catching and Removing Possums
Possums might look sweet, but you do not want these critters to take up residence in your home. Possums do not make the best housemates, and their urine and droppings can be dangerous to health and also ruin ceilings.
Possums are native Australian animals and so accorded protection by the Nature Conservation Act 1992, which forbids people from harming them. Keeping them captive without first obtaining approval from the Department of Natural Resources and Environment is also not allowed. Heavy fines await those found guilty of infringing the law. A licensed pest control professional can make a house call, lay a trap on the roof of your building and safely capture the possum.
How To Proceed with Our Advice and Help
It’s important to do your part by making sure all possum droppings are removed. When cleaning, take care not to come into direct contact with the waste. Wear protective gear and make sure hands are washed throughly at the end of the operation.
Search for all the points at which possums could be entering the property and seal them off. Be alert to possums even after all this is done, and arrange for a return service call if needed.
Give us a ring at 02 6109 4190 or make an online enquiry and we will help you to get rid of your possum issues.
Spiders are not just scary, they can also be highly dangerous to humans. For instance, the red back spider is a common sight in Port Stephens and can present a major threat to humans. Our team can eradicate spiders from your home with professional grade spider control treatments.
To keep spiders out, a Flick expert will treat crevices and cracks, around downpipes, external window areas, doorways, under seating and lighting. This will stop spiders from multiplying and invading your property.
