Who else wants to end nightmare Cockroach problems –instantly and for good?

When you think about cockroaches what words come to mind?

Filthy

Putrid

Disgusting

Creepy-Crawly… just to name a few

No doubt about it… They are a repulsive pest!

But as much as you hate to admit it , Cockroaches are incredibly adaptable creatures in more ways than one. How adaptable? Just read on

  1. Are older than Dinosaurs
  2. There are more than 4000 species of Cockroaches throughout the world
  3. They can eat just about anything from sweets , starchy food, and meats
  4. Can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes so they are impossible to drown
  5. They can live for a week without their head! Now if that hasn’t made your stomach churn by now I don’t know what will!

Fact is here in Australia the amount of Cockroaches invading homes has increased in the last 3 years. And that has a lot to do with the warmer, drier weather of recent years.

That’s why.

If you live in Perth one of Australia’s hottest capital cities your home or office is a prime target for a Cockroach infestation. It’s not every day that you have to worry about them but one of the alarming aspects to Cockroaches is they cause a plethora of illnesses which include diphtheria, salmonella food poisoning, dysentery, and hosts of others.

Just remember…

Before deciding what to do with Cockroaches your next to step is to clearly identify them.

How many cockroaches do we have to worry about in WA?

Now your kids can play in the backyard safely without fear of spiders

At Pesti Pest Control we will ensure your backyard is a fun and safe place to be this summer, free from spiders, so you can enjoy a few cold drinks with your mates and family.

You’ve seen them popularised in Hollywood movies but unsurprisingly the humble spider gets more attention than most other creatures in the animal kingdom. If the biggest fear about being bitten by one is that you could transform into Spiderman for a day then that would be the greatest boyhood dream.

So let’s take movies aside for a second.

Truth is Spider bites are an unpleasant experience for any person. So whether you are a young child, adult, or even the family pet the sight of seeing an itchy red stinging spot on your body is enough to cause major concern for anyone.

And even if you don’t get bitten by one just the sight of a Spider crawling around your home is enough to send shivers down the spine of any normally sane person. These eight legged arachnids are always good to bringing out our deepest anxiety and fears.

Perth plays host to some of the most venomous varieties:

The Redback is the most well-known Australian spider and found in all areas except the highest mountains and deep in the ocean.

Only Female bite is dangerous. The venom attacks the central nervous system causing intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions and in severe cases  finally…Death.”

Since Redbacks rarely leave their web a human body part would have to touch their web directly to be on the receiving end of a bite because of their small jaws most bites are ineffective

Huntsman spiders are those big, hairy, scary, long-legged spiders we often find behind curtains, in the shower cubicle and under the car’s sun visor.

These timid creatures are harmless and will run from humans at lightning fast speeds.

The design of the legs allows the Huntsman to run sideways as well as forward.

Daddy Long-legs An ideal pet to keep in the house as they hunt, kill and eat Redback Spiders, House Spiders, Wolf Spiders and more. They have 3 body sections, not two like spiders, and their legs have seven sections which they can break off to surprise or distract a predator.

3 Things you can do to protect your family from a Spider invasion this summer:

  1. Before the onset of the hotter months spray under your eaves with a  professional surface spray  which will flush out spiders out of their hiding places
  2. Use a cobwebber to remove all webs in your outdoor patio areas and especially garages, pool fences, window frames & under fence capping
  3. Mix equal parts water and lemon juice in a spray bottle and spray any exposed cracks, door frames, or window frames with the solution.

Failing any of the above methods your next move is to call  our Spider Removal & Control Perth Team they are specialists in eradicating any infestation. Their pest control services includes dusting of the roof void were they commonly nest. We residual spray all external areas around gutters and eaves, along fence lines, pergolas, around windows and door frames and all other associated places where spiders are likely to live.

As you think about what you really need to rid your home of spider infestation you must begin to realise that you only have one choice to make, and that is to call the professionals at Pesti Pest Control.

Is your backyard an oasis or an Ant’s Best friend?

Is your backyard an oasis or an Ant’s Best friend?

Ant Control Perth

Here at Ant Pest Control Perth we know how much hard work goes into maintaining your outdoors.

That’s why for any proud homeowner you get excited when the backyard is looking spick- and- span. You’ve swept the brick paving and thrilled with the excellent job you’ve done.

By tomorrow morning your excitement will only be short-lived resulting in that deflated feeling once again. You discover all the messy soil sitting on your pavers is a result of those terrible Ants. They have been very busy indeed pushing their way from underneath your pavers to create their nests.

Incredibly they do this by having a dedicated army of soldiers and work in unison to win the battle of your patio, gardens, alfresco, and BBQ area.

Pretty frustrating isn’t it?

Unsurprisingly our team at Pesti Pest Control get calls across Perth every week to treat our clients Ant infestation problems.

They are on everyone’s radar as the #1 pest to get rid of.

Whilst Ants are far from a venomous insect if left untreated they are extremely difficult to completely remove.  Without doubt they are one of the most adaptable species on the planet with the innate ability of building their own nests and expanding it to a perfect size that suits their colony.

Are Ants capable of doing much damage? Good question.

To the average person it seems they are only capable of doing small amounts of damage but surprise – surprise they are capable of causing pavers to drop or become uneven from their burrowing action. Whilst Ants don’t have the destructive ability of Termites they are capable of travelling to other areas quite easily as they can get through the tiniest of cracks and enter areas that aren’t visible.

# 3 Things you can do to prevent them from entering inside your house

  1. Ensure you seal all gaps around downpipes with a waterproof sealant.
  2. Ensure you fill all gaps and holes with silicon wherever tiles meet your kitchen benchtop
  3. Clean up all food matter from paved and internal floors

What Measures can you take to stop them?

Whilst it’s a good idea to take some temporary measures to treat Ant infestations yourself such as pouring boiling hot water or sprinkling Ant repellent powder bought from your local hardware store. Chances are pretty high this won’t deter the colony at all.  You will find that the vast number of the colony will stay safe in their makeshift tunnel and easily migrate to another area in just a few weeks.

 How Skilled is an Ant Colony?

Their organisational skills as a colony are remarkable; they distinctly divide labour and form groups to get their work done. When these ants form an infestation, it gets difficult to handle them because you have to deal with a whole colony.  The colony will have many entrances and exits that come up from around your home and are often seen entering into your kitchen and through the roof.

Call In The Professionals

We sepcialise in Ant Pest Control  servicing all of Perth, our technicians have many years experience and are highly skilled in treating Ant infestations.  Specifically what we do is firstly dust the roof void and accessible cavities, treat the external perimeter of you house and flood treat your paved areas.

Pesti then directly targets nests and trails placing ant bait when necessary to cut out any ant colonies around your home.

As you think about what you really need to rid your home of invasive Ants you must begin to realise that you only have one choice to make, and that is to call the professionals at Pesti Pest Ant Control Perth.

 

At last Rodent Control Perth treatment at reasonable prices

Did you know that while you’re fast sleep there’s one intruder that does the most damage?

You’re probably thinking with a state of the art monitored security system, how could any intruder get through?

Good question.

But seriously. You know what’s worse than a Burglar – A pesky Rodent.

Perth Rodent Control

Since they are a nocturnal mammal they love sneaking around your house inconspicuously carrying out their destructive work. When most people think of Rodents they think of Rats & mice but it also includes squirrels, hamsters, and porcupines.

So whether you have lived in a country town or the city chances are pretty high that you’ve had an unpleasant encounter. Part of the problem with most rats; they can transmit numerous diseases like Salmonella, rabies and typhus, via their droppings, urine, and even harm your pets with a direct bit as well as carrying fleas.

Finding a cosy spot in your house is relatively easy for most Rats as they can easily pass through a hole or gap as small as 12mm where mice can even squeeze through 6mm gaps wide. They seek to build nests for their young, and are capable of producing ten or more pups every three weeks under ideal conditions.

What are the #5 signs of a Rodent problem?

You do have a serious problem on your hands if you see the following.

  • Rat droppings around your home,
  • brown stains on your walls,
  • noises in the dark (such as scratching sounds in the roof)
  • Evidence of gnawing
  • Nests or piled nesting materials in hidden areas.

What damage can they do to your property?

Rodents often cause damage to property and homes through their continuous gnawing action.  They often chew through electrical cabling which can cause fires through exposed electrical wiring.  There is often damage to decorative and other timbers in roofs, walls, skirting boards and ceilings. Rats and mice often destroy vegetable gardens and fruit crops in backyard gardens.

Here’s how you can solve your Rodent problems instantly and for good!

Now if you have tried every single preventive measure such as leaving traps and baits and the infestation still exists you should call the professionals at Pesti Rodent Control Perth now. Their technicians are highly qualified on how to quickly and easily remove rodents from your home.

First they will discuss your situation with you and then carry out a routine inspection of your property which is then followed by placing the bait stations in carefully chosen locations.

For successful control of rat and mouse populations, one needs to know where these rats and mice are nesting, travelling and feeding.  Correct placement of traps or baits based on typical rodent behaviour is critical to achieving the desired result.

For Best Results Pesti Rodent Control Perth recommends

You prepare for your rodent treatment as follows, to minimise the risk of re-infestation:

  • Store all pantry items in plastic containers – especially grains and flours
  • Keep pet food and water bowls clean when not in use
