Common Types of Pests
Rats - Rats are a kind of medium-sized rodent with long tails. Rats gnaw on practically any property fixture; they can damage plastic and wood, sometimes even weaker metals and concrete. They are known to gnaw through pipes and wirings, causing water leakage, electricity disruptions, and sometimes, even fires. Rats eat practically anything and they carry disease with them. For these reasons, rats are some of the most destructive pests to have and they cost billions of dollars in property damages every year.
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 in 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, they also give people a good scare. Arachnophobia or fear of spiders, is one of the most common phobias in the world.
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
To keep pests from infesting your property, make sure to keep things well-maintained and keep your property dry. Fix your pipes to ensure you have no leaks. Get rid of any damp areas as they are a common breeding ground for pests. Make sure water doesn’t enter your property, even on the sub-floor. Adding a vent to increase air circulation can help keep your sub-floor area dry. Also, avoid leaving any wooden object or surface damp.
Moreover, keep the surrounding areas of your property clean. Plants and trees attract pests; so make sure large plants and trees aren’t leaning into or over your property. Keep your yard clean to prevent spiders and termites from entering your property.
Lastly, observe proper food storage. One of the biggest reasons pests enter your property and build nests there is because they find food and water sources which allow them to build comfortable homes. Seal food tightly in containers and always wipe down surfaces like kitchen counters and dining tables clean from crumbs or food smudges after eating.
