Common Types of Pests
Termites - Termites are white ant-like insects that eat wood. They are incredibly small so they can burrow into wood crevices or hide within wooden beams, walls, or furniture. For this reason, termites can go unnoticed for a long time and people don’t notice they have a termite infestation until they've wrought sizable damage. In Australia, termite infestations result in billions of dollars worth of damages to property every year. Such damages result in billions of dollars every year and property owners spend just as much on termite treatment and prevention.
Cockroaches - Cockroaches are brown pests that are found all over the world. They are incredibly resourceful and resilient; they can live anywhere, eat anything, and breed in almost any environment. Keeping a property clean is not enough to keep cockroaches out. They find food and water almost anywhere and they always find a way into a property. They can be crawling through doors, windows, and pipes. They can also enter through holes or cracks or hitch a ride via bags, packages, etc.
Spiders - Spiders are small arachnids with eight legs. They feed on insects and they’re also some of the most prevalent pests found indoors. Spiders like to build webs in dark, untouched, corners of rooms. Because they prey on other insects, they aren’t the worst pests to have around, however, they are still unwelcome in our homes and offices. Their webs are unsightly and dirty and they also scare a lot of people. Arachnophobia or fear of spiders is one of the most common phobias in the world.
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. Due to their size, they hide inside mattresses, headboards, or bed frames and can go unnoticed for a long time. They come out to bite people at night, during which they become engorged. After feeding, bed bugs skitter away, leaving behind itchy welts on the skin which are often mistaken 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
The best way to prevent pest infestations is by making sure to keep things well-maintained and to keep your property dry. Food and water attract pests so store your food properly and always keep your property dry.
Be mindful of your food stores. Pests enter your property and build nests there because they find food and water sources. Store food properly in airtight containers and always keep clean surfaces like kitchen counters and dining tables.
Also, fix broken pipes to prevent water leakage. Eliminate damp areas and make sure water doesn’t enter your property, even on the sub-floor. Adding a vent increases air circulation in your sub-floor which helps keep the area dry. Also, don’t leave wood wet.
Last but not least, regularly inspect your surrounding areas. An infestation nearby can easily affect your property as well. And be wary of plants and trees. They are great to look at but they attract pests; hence make sure they aren’t leaning into or over your property. And don’t forget to keep your yard clean and have sealed containers for waste disposal.
