Spiders

Australia is home to many species of spider, some carrying lethal bites. Canberra hosts many of these, with the most common household species being White-tailed spiders, huntsmen, redbacks and daddy long-legs spiders. The bites of some of these spiders can cause pain, swelling and itchiness, nausea, vomiting, headache, ulcers, necrosis and sadly, even death.

Cockroaches

Canberra has 20 or 30 types of cockroaches. They can spread disease by transporting bacteria from polluted environments, contaminating your food. These unsightly scavengers can cause allergic reactions in humans such as asthma, and can leave an offensive odour. Each female can produce up to 400 offspring.

mastotermes darwiniensis

Termites

There are several species of termites in Australia, the most common in Canberra is Coptotermes frenchi. The nest of these destructive pests are often detected in eucalyptus tree trunks, and without protection can make their way to the structural timbers of your home, poles and fences undetected, potentially costing you tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair. Most insurance companies will not cover termite damage. For information on our Termite inspections, click on the Termite banner of our website.

flea

Fleas

In Australia, these parasites feed on the fresh blood of humans, dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, ferrets, mice and rats. Their larvae feed on the faeces of mature fleas. The bite of a flea will cause itch, swelling and skin irritation. Fleas transmit diseases to their hosts, and helped cause the bubonic plague.
