Common Types of Pests in Oakville
Termites - Termites are tiny ant-like crawling insects that eat wood. These pests are small and white in colour. They like to hide inside wood wooden beams, walls, or furniture and can go undetected for a long time. The only way to know you have a termite problem is when you probe or lift wood to look for hollow spots. Sometimes, people only realize they have a termite infestation when there’s already a swarm of them or there are already sizable damages to property. For this reason, Australians spend billions of dollars every year in property damages due to termite infestations and property owners spend as well on termite treatment and prevention.
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 small eight-legged arachnids that feed on insects. They’re also some of the most prevalent pests found in Australian properties. They usually 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. Not only are their webs unsightly and dirty, but they also give people a good scare. Arachnophobia or fear of spiders is one of the most common phobias in the world.
Rats - Rats are a kind of medium-sized rodent with long tails. They have huge front teeth and they gnaw on almost anything. This means they can easily chew through plastic and wood. Sometimes, they can also damage weaker metals and thinner concrete. Because of this, rat infestations can cause holes in pipes and broken wires, which can result in water leakage, electricity disruptions, and sometimes, even fires. Rats also eat almost anything they come across. And because they are dirty and carry disease with them, if people accidentally eat food that has been contaminated by rats, they will become sick and will require medical attention. For these reasons, rats are some of the most destructive pests to have. Every year, the Australian property owners billions of dollars in damages alone.
Bed Bugs - Bed bugs are small, brown parasites that feed on animal or human blood. They are tiny and flat so they can easily slip into mattresses, headboards, or bed frames and can go unnoticed for a long period of time. Bed bugs like to come out and bite people at night to feed on their blood. After feeding, bed bugs can leave behind itchy welts on the skin. These can be mistaken for skin rash or allergies, making it harder to detect whether one has bed bugs in their homes.
How to prevent pests
Food and water attract pests. Having food or trash as well stagnant water or damp areas are likely to breed pests, causing an infestation. As such, the best way to stop pests before they infest your property is to keep your property clean, well-maintained, and as much as possible, dry.
Fix broken pipes to avoid leaks. Remove damp areas to discourage pests from breeding. Prevent water from flowing into your property, even on the sub-floor. Add a vent to increase air circulation in your sub-floor to help keep the area dry. Also, avoid leaving any wooden object or surface damp.
Also, regularly inspect your surrounding areas. Plants and trees attract pests; so make sure large plants and trees aren’t leaning into or over your property. You should also keep your yard or garden clean to prevent spiders and termites from entering your property.
Lastly, be mindful of food lying around your property. Food attracts pests, especially when left alone for long. Always store food properly in sealed containers and always clean surfaces where you put food, like kitchen counters and dining tables. And don’t forget to take out the trash.
