You know what it’s like when family members invite themselves to your home without even saying anything and just assume that you have space for them and that you can put your life on hold while they stay for free inside your property. It can be difficult saying no to family but you must remain firm and remind them that they just can’t turn up out of the blue and expect you to put everything on hold. You have control over a situation such as this but imagine if an unwelcome guest came to live in your property and they didn’t care if you wanted them there or not.
This is a constant problem for homes and businesses all across Australia and these unwelcome guests are the many bugs and animals that decide to set up home in and around your property. You do not want to be having to pay pest control costs for something that is definitely not your fault and if you think that this is something that only happens to your neighbours then the following are just some of the top pests that might be deciding they want to stay in your house for a sustained amount of time.
- Rats & mice – They may look cute when you see them in cartoon movies but these pests can cause a great deal of harm throughout your whole property. For some reason they have a fascination with electrical and Internet wires and so they will gladly chew through them which will cut off your electricity and club your Internet. You then have to pay a professional to climb into the roof space and make the necessary repairs.
- Little tiny ants – They are so small and yet collectively, they are so devastating to any property. These little critters can pretty much go anywhere that they want and so they can completely infest your property and even cause you to move out. Even smaller than these are termites and these can cause extensive damages to your home and they can be incredibly difficult to get rid of if you don’t have pest control.
- Cockroaches – They are known for their ability to multiply quickly and cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time. In fact, cockroaches can often be seen in kitchens and other areas where food is stored or prepared, as well as in public places such as libraries and restaurants. Cockroaches can cause major damage by contaminating food with their droppings, which can lead to food-borne illnesses. They can also spread disease by coming into contact with people who are sick. Additionally, they can contaminate surfaces with their faeces, which can lead to hygiene concerns and additional damage.
This is why it is essential that if you notice any of these things above or any other animal staying for longer than you would like, you need to call out the local pest control expert who will rid you of these unwanted guests and hopefully they won’t come back ever again.
