Common Types of Pests in Windsor Downs
Termites - Termites are white ant-like insects that eat wood. They usually come in colonies and they burrow into wood crevices or hide within wooden beams, walls, or furniture. For this reason, termite infestations can go unnoticed for a long time. Very often, people are unaware they even have termites until they spot a swarm of them or there is already sizable damage to the property. As such, Australians spend billions of dollars every year in terms of damages, treatment, and prevention of termite infestations.
Cockroaches - Cockroaches are a type of pest that is found all over the world. Cockroaches are incredibly resourceful and resilient. They can live anywhere; they eat anything, and they breed under almost any condition. Even in the cleanest homes, cockroaches can exist. They find food and water almost anywhere and they will find a way into your property by crawling through doors, windows, and pipes. They also enter through holes or cracks or by hitching a ride in any object you bring into your space, like bags, packages, etc.
Spiders - Spiders are arachnids that feed on insects. They have eight legs and they spin webs. They are also some of the most feared pests in the world. Spiders are commonly found in dark, untouched, corners. Because spiders prey on other insects, they don’t pose a large threat to people. However, they are still unwelcome in our homes and offices. Not only are their webs unsightly and dirty, but they can also bite when provoked. Their bites can be poisonous and might cause mild itching, a rash, or even require hospitalization.
Rats - Rats are medium-sized dark coloured rodents. Rats have long tails and huge front teeth. They gnaw on practically anything, which means they can damage plastic and wood, sometimes even weaker metals and concrete. When rats infest a property, they bite through pipes and wirings, causing water leakage, electricity disruptions, and sometimes, even fires. Rats also eat human food and are known to contaminate them with various diseases. Eating rat-contaminated food will warrant medical attention.
Bed bugs - Bed bugs are small, brown parasites that feed on animal or human blood. Bed bugs usually hide in mattresses, headboards, or bed frames hence their name. They bite people at night when they sleep to drink blood, during which they become engorged. After feeding, bed bugs skitter away, leaving behind itchy welts on the skin. 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
The best form of pest control is prevention. Maintain your property well and keep it tidy and dry. Fix any pipes to avoid leaks and eliminate damp areas which are a possible breeding ground for pests. Don’t let outdoor water enter your property, even on the sub-floor. Add a vent to increase air circulation in your sub-floor and keep the area dry. Also, avoid leaving any wooden object or surface damp.
Besides maintaining your property, also regularly inspect your surrounding areas and make sure they are not infested with pests. Plants and trees also attract pests; so make sure large plants and trees aren’t leaning into or over your property. Maintain a clean yard to prevent pests from entering your property.
Lastly, store food properly. Keep food in airtight containers and always clean up after eating. Also, don’t forget to take out the trash. Pests love leftovers and dirt.
