Possum Catcher Pest Control Canberra Call 0407 065 413

There has been a larger than ordinary possum calls outs this winter. Many reasons for this as Canberra expands to make way for buildings and housing destroying possum habitat and food source they are heading into suburbia and that is when it becomes a problem.

Who would blame possums for wanting to keep warm in Canberra winters!

Our team is one of the few pest control companies that are fully licensed by TAMs to trap and release possums. As a bonus, we will also repair minor entry points of the possum when it is a small job with easy access.

We will not set traps over the weekend as we do not work on Sunday to release them which would be cruel.

As you can see in the video possums are protective and also territorial and they normally travel in pairs and will regularly, fight with their partners or fight over food but believe me they are a big pest especially while you are sleeping.

FLEA PEST CONTROL CANBERRA

Fleas are small wingless but agile insects who live by consuming the blood of their hosts. They are external parasites who look for mammals and birds to survive.

FLEA LIFE CYCLE

Adult fleas grown to about 3mm long and usually brown to dark in colouring. They can flatten their bodies sideways enables fleas to crawl or burrow through the fur or feathers of their hosts hanging on by their strong back claws designed to grasp onto their hosts.

Flea mouths have been adapted to pierce skin and sucking blood and as they lack wings they can jump 50 times their actual body length 18 cm vertically and 33 cm horizontally.
Flea bodies are covered with hard plates known as scierites, which are covered with a multitude of hairs and short spines, directed backwards to assist its movement on the host.

Pet owners in Queensland BEWARE

Fleas love it when its warm, both temperature wise and for living conditions but pet owners should be aware of the risks associated with pets in these hot climates.
The fleas can breed about just everywhere: carpets, rugs, throws, sofas, lounges, inside and outside the home. They will also find their way into furnishings, cracks in the floorboards and upholstered furniture.

Flea eggs and larvae can run rampant; the larvae feed not only on mature adult faeces, which contain dried blood, they also eat organic matter especially in bedding and carpets.

Pets should be regularly groomed.

By grooming and regularly maintaining them especially if they are playing and walking in grasses a suggestion is that you comb the pet with a flea comb. Scratching or biting behaviour by pets is often a hint that they have fleas, and need treatment asap.

A rule of thumb is that fleas can be carried by just about any hairy animal. Because fleas are parasitic, they can leave uncomfortable itches or rashes on skin particularly worrying when the home owner has small children.

Flea bites and what happens if left undisturbed

Flea bites cause a slightly raised swollen itchy red spot to form with a single puncture point at the centre like a mosquito bite surrounded by reddened haloes.

Fleas carry viruses and bacterial diseases, even bubonic plague as well as transmitting host of diseases and even tapeworms.

Undisturbed and without a blood meal, fleas can live for more than 100 days and on average live between two and three months.

The reason fleas are not a more common problem for humans is due to our lack of body hair.

SPIDERS KEEPS A WOMAN HOSTAGE IN DUFFY!

http://a1pestcontrolcanberra.com.au

As strange as it seems we often get people that are terrified or allergic to spiders we took a call at the start of the week from a woman in Duffy that was literally inside her home as a hostage and too scared to venture past her front door for fear that it would jump on her.

Bob sent the team out so she would be spider free and did a general pest spray in and around the house.

What many people do not realise is that many spiders like bushes and trees or they make their web around the guttering or roof line. When a pest treatment is done many people would run out with the broom and get rid of the web….WRONG

LEAVE a WEBS up for at least 3-4 weeks as they contain residue from the treatment and it will keep on killing the spiders. Spiders are blown in by the wind and are pretty much lazy and do not always spin another web if they see a web not being used they will then move in.

FACT did you know that some spiders can have as many as 100 baby spiders!!! Do the math if you have many spiders you have a BIG problem.

This will make you squirm…
