Did you know that the residents in your home are not only the human and animal variety? Many people believe if there are no pests to be seen they must not be there! Unfortunately this is not the case. Just like us, all pests need shelter and some just happen to believe that your home is the perfect spot.
A clean house is not necessarily a pest-free house. Pests don’t actually care how clean and tidy your home is, they are simply looking for shelter and nesting areas. Cracks and crevices in and around your home make perfect places for pests to hang-out. Now there are many DIY treatments which homeowners use to attempt to reduce pest activity around the home. The myth that mice love cheese is unfortunately only reserved for cartoon characters. Mice actually have a sweet-tooth and like foods with higher sugar content. DIY treatments can only give limited, short-term results. Only a thorough, professional Sandgate Pest Control General Pest Control Treatment will keep all of your creepy crawlies out of sight for 12 months. We believe these professional treatments actually save you time and money because these treatments are treating all of the creepy crawlies you can’t see behind enclosed walls and cracks and crevices.
Termites are a real threat to our homes in South East Queensland. Again, just because you can’t see them does not mean there aren’t busily eating away at the timbers in your home, fence or tree stumps in your yard. Termites never sleep so they have a lot of time to eat! The Australian Standard recommends Annual Timber Pest Inspections and the installation of a protective treatment around the home.
