Common Types of Pests in North Richmond
Termites - Termites are white ant-like insects that eat wood. Due to their small size, termites can burrow into wood crevices or hide within wooden beams, walls, or furniture without being noticed. For this reason, termites can create large-scale damage and only get detected when damage to property is already sizable. Such damages cost Australians billions of dollars every year and property owners spend just as much on termite treatment and prevention.
Cockroaches - Cockroaches are a type of brown pest found all over the world. Cockroaches are incredibly resourceful and resilient; they can crawl and they can also fly. They can live anywhere; they eat anything, and they breed in virtually any environment. They don’t only exist in dirty properties, though they are more common there. Even the cleanest homes can have cockroaches since these pests will find a way to get food or water wherever they can. They can also enter by crawling through doors, windows, and pipes or by hitching a ride in any object you bring into your space.
Spiders - Spiders are eight-legged arachnids which are some of the most prevalent pests found in Australian properties. They like to build webs in dark, untouched, corners of rooms and they prey on other insects. This means they aren’t the worst pests to have around, however, they are still unwelcome in our homes and offices. Not only are their webs unsightly and dirty, but they also are some of the most feared creatures in the world. Not to mention, they can bite if provoked, causing mild rashes or serious poisoning, depending on their species.
Rats - Rats are medium-sized rodents in black, grey, or brown with long tails. Rats gnaw on most things, from plastic and wood to sometimes even weaker metals and concrete. With rats in your property, they can gnaw through pipes and wirings, causing water leakage, electricity disruptions, and sometimes, even fires. Rats also carry disease with them and can cause illnesses especially when they contaminate the food people eat. For these reasons, rats are some of the most destructive pests to have and they cost billions of dollars in property damages every year.
Bed bugs - Bed bugs are little brown parasites that feed on animal or human blood. Bed bugs don’t have nests though they are known to hide in mattresses, headboards, or bed frames and come out at night to feed on people. They bite people to draw blood, during which they become engorged. After feeding, they can leave behind itchy welts on the skin which a mistake for rashes. Because bed bugs are really small and have flat bodies, they can fit into the smallest holes and can go unnoticed for a long time.
How to prevent pests
Pests are attracted by food and water and they build nests in dark and damp places. To prevent pest infestations, maintain your property well and keep it dry. Immediately fix leaking pipes and eliminate damp areas. Keep outdoor water from entering your property, even on the sub-floor. Add a vent to increase air circulation and keep your sub-floor dry. Also, don’t leave wooden objects or surfaces damp.
Also, keep the surrounding areas of your property clean and pest-free. A dirty environment will cause infestations, which can easily infect your property. Be wary of plants and trees as well. Because they attract pests, make sure they aren’t leaning into or over your property. And don’t forget to keep your yard clean to prevent spiders and termites from entering your property.
Lastly, don’t leave food lying around. One of the biggest reasons pests enter your property and build nests there is because they find food and water sources. Store food properly in sealed containers and always clean surfaces of crumbs, sauces, or food smudges. Also, regularly take out the trash.
