Pests never seem to completely go away no matter what you do, and most often than not, your methods do not work because you’re using the wrong method on a specific pest or you’re not sure what kind of pest is infesting your home. A lot of home owners get confused especially with insects as some of them look very similar except for some distinct features, and if you’re not an expert, you can get confused pretty easily.
White ant termites are irritating pests which can cause great damage to homes and buildings, especially those that are made largely of wood. These pale-coloured insects can nest in your home and build a colony of white ant termites. If not prevented, they can immediately occupy a big space in your house.
White ant termites have pale, soft, and small bodies. They reside with a colony either in wood or in a soil, including wall cavities in houses and commercial establishments. When the infestation is not prevented quick enough, this can result in major damage to the household or in business establishments.
Fleas are an annoyance to both humans and pets and local households in Perth do not feel any different about it. Flea bites not only itch and burn, they leave red, swollen patches on the skin, similar to mosquito bites, and nest on pets’ furs, causing more unwanted fleas population. They leave more than one bite mark on the skin and it stays as is for several weeks despite ointment applications and first-aid treatments.
Termites are small dark coloured insects that live in large colonies with a number of different casts that usually live in a mound of earth. Termites are often confused with ants because of the similarity in their structures. Most of them feed on wood and are extremely destructive to plants and lumber based products, but they also have a good effect on nature as they help get rid of dead wood.
Bedbugs are small, brown insects which feed on human and animal blood for survival. They have bodies the size of an apple seed, flat in size when they are unfed and swollen and red after a meal. They produce a distinct smell through their glands on the bottom portion of their bodies. Bedbugs are not capable of flying, but they have a rapid pace and the ability to crawl on walls, floors, and ceilings.
Before you can begin the process of ant removal you need to identify the type of ant which is invading your home or property. There are a number of different steps in which you can take to find this out such as looking at their nesting habits to try and determine where they might be living.
