Common Types of Pests in Richmond
Termites - Termites are white ant-like pests that feed on wood. They burrow into wood crevices or hide within wooden beams, walls, or furniture and can go unnoticed for a long time. People only detect a termite infestation when they probe or lift wood for hollow spots. If not, property owners discover termite infestations only when there is a swarm of them or sizable damages to the property has occurred. Such damages cost Australians billions of dollars every year and property owners spend billions 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 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 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
Keep pests from infesting your property by keeping things well-maintained and keeping your property dry. Fix your pipes to avoid leaks. Get rid of damp areas to eliminate possible breeding grounds 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, store your food well. Pests enter your property and build nests there because they find food and water sources. Seal your food tightly in containers and always keep surfaces like kitchen counters and dining tables clean from crumbs or food smudges after eating.
