https://a1pestcontrolcanberra.com.au

Everyone has heard that a man’s home is his castle right?
What about if the castle comes under attack silently without you even suspecting there was a problem!

Canberra does not get the name bush capital for nothing its surrounded by bush termites favourite food but as Canberra expands the trees are cleared for housing the termites go looking for more wood yes your castle!

 

 

PREVENTION IS CHEAPER THAN CURE!

An annual inspection is what is needed to inspect your property in either 2 ways:
– visual inspection – looks for evidence that they are already there by tapping and using a moisture guage
– thermal image inspection – finds termites BEFORE they do damage uncovering termite movement, moisture, body heat & underlying house faults eg leaking behind walls etc

 

IF WE FIND TERMITES HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS

Discuss and show you where the termites are and what process
is needed to combat the problem and cost involved.
– we then chase the termites out so they travel back to the
nest to kill the other termites
– we install chemical termite barrier which has 8 yrs 2M dollar assurance that the termites are gone for good.

Tis the season… for European wasps and bed bugs

European Wasp

It’s that time of year again European Wasp Pest Control will be needed, keep an eye out.

The sun is shining and the weather is warming, and if you haven’t seen them already, it won’t be long before you’re swatting flies, running from wasps, screaming at cockroaches and spiders, and hearing the familiar scratching of possums (or mice) in the roof.

“At this time of year you’ll want to be on the lookout for mice, cockroaches and European wasps,” says Jenny Jordan director at A1 Pest Control Canberra. “European wasps are a growing concern in Canberra.

They build their nests underground or in trees, at the entrances to houses and even inside walls. And when they sting you, they don’t die. They go back and tell the nest they’re under attack and then come after you and unlike the bee one sting and they die the European Wasp will sting up to 9 times!

They’ve evolved, so traditional methods of hitting them with boiling water or a can of bug spray doesn’t really help. Off-the-shelf just isn’t strong enough. Stay right away and call a licensed pest control specialist.”

Another pest to be wary of this season is bed bugs. Jenny warns that when you head out on holidays or stay in a hotel, bed bugs can ride on your luggage all the way home and then infest your house.

“Once they’re inside your house,” she says, “they’re really hard to get rid of. They hide in the cracks of walls, in the ceiling, on curtains and in your mattress.

They anaesthetize the area where they will bite, so you don’t feel them biting you. The only way you might know they are there is the tell-tale spots of blood on the sheets or raised bites on your body. Eradicating them requires more than treating one room – they just move to another room. You have to treat the whole house.”

Bed bugs and European wasps are just two types of creepy crawlies that the team have been treating for years.

Many of our VIP clients include a long list of happy (pest free) home owners, new home buyers, renters, property investors, builders, real estate agents, schools and government agencies.

A1 Pest Control Canberra pride themselves on using both family, pet and environmentally friendly chemicals, and have been using thermal imaging technology to help with their initial pest investigations.

“Thermal imaging is amazing,” says Jenny. “It basically allows the technician to see through the whole house with the click of a button. Traditionally you would walk through the house and look for signs of infestation, tap walls and rely on your senses and experience. Now we have science to confirm everything.

Thermal imaging allows us to detect the body heat, movement and moisture of pests like termites anywhere in the house. And while we’re at it we often pick up issues with plumbing or maintenance and alert the owner. It’s very efficient.”

The team now use thermal imaging in places where termites have been previously or where people want a more thorough inspection done to have peace of mind.

Our company is one of the largest suppliers of BASF Termidor chemical barriers we put these barrier in due to the safety net of the $2M 8 year warranty against termites returning.

If you’re interested to have someone look behind the walls and in the ceiling of your home, or you need termite inspections, termite barriers, or European wasps, mice, cockroaches, ants, bed bugs or any other creepy crawly taken care of you can contact our team on 0407 065 413 or visit A1 Pest Control Canberra.

7 Hot Tips for Summer Pests in Canberra

Cover up: Wear shoes and gloves while gardening. Funnel web, red back and white tail spiders love tunneling in dirt.

Seal food: Cockroaches vomit and excrete into unsealed food in pantries, which once eaten can make you very sick.

Keep it clean: Rats, mice and cockroaches love open food. Try not to leave dishes out overnight or food crumbs on the floor. They’ll smell it and find any way to get in.

Cut grass: Fleas love long grass. Keep grass short to avoid infestations in the house.

Prune trees: Possums and rats climb from tree branches onto roofs. Keep trees cut back.

Rake fruit: Fallen fruit from fruit trees is enticing for pests. Rake it up regularly.

Get regular inspections: Did you know most home insurance policies don’t cover termite damage? Avoid tens of thousands in possible damages by making sure these pests aren’t silently ruining your home.

The Best Solutions to your Rodent problem

Solutions to your Rodent problem

Rodent Problem in Canberra

It has been established that there are more than sixty species of rats in Australia, which occupy a wide range of the habitats across the country. Even though most of these are native species there are two rats (Black Rat and Brown Rat) which were introduced in Australia and have rapidly adjusted to Australian conditions. The Black rat which is the one that is more widespread and abundant is a commensal rodent and is commonly found in disturbed or degraded environments. This is the type of rat that is commonly spotted in cities and towns, and it is the one commonly responsible for the infestation of houses, sheds, warehouses and storage.

This is the type of rat that is commonly spotted in cities and towns, and it is the one commonly responsible for the infestation of houses, sheds, warehouses and storage.

Rodent Problems

A lot of rats are known to primarily feed on seeds, followed by an herbivorous diet. Since rats are generally omnivores, they consume a range of food items depending on the availability. Human activities such as clearing unsuitable habitats and planting cereal and other food crops are some of the factors which normally increase the optimal habitat and food resources for rats. Both the local as well as introduced species of rats are known to breed and spread very quickly. They also commonly infest crops and food storages, and this may lead to huge economic damage. In Australia, the eruptions of rat infestations are normally not very easy to predict and the circumstances leading to infestations of crops are not fully understood. Due to this variability as well as the unpredictable occurrence of infestations, the control rodents can be difficult.

This is why an integrated pest management approach can be the best approach to get rid of rodents effectively. In many cases the very first clue of a serious rodent problem is normally by spotting their droppings on the kitchen counter, in kitchen drawers, cabinets, or the pantry. If one area of your property is infested, it’s normally very likely that the entire neighborhood is infested too. This is one of the reasons why rodents can be very difficult for a homeowner to control. They are usually a community problem. It ca be more effective to get rid of rodents if all the homeowners in a community work together to eliminate sources of food, water, and shelter. Rodents can be very persistent in their efforts to invade the home, but you can deal with them effectively if you know their capabilities.

Best Solution for your Rodent Problem in Canberra

A good professional pest controller will provide you with the best advice and techniques which you can easily implement on your own. Some of the major steps to eradicate rodents include:

  1. Good Sanitation Measures. Always ensure that surfaces in the home are clean so as to avoid rodents being attracted into the space by smells of food.
  2. Rodent Problem Proofing the Home. A good pest control expert can also look at your home for opportunities and rodent proof certain areas that may be not obvious or accessible to the homeowner.
  3. Poisons and Baits. There are cases where the best treatment to the existing populations of rats and mice in your home is through chemical treatments. This is especially when the infestation is very wide spread.

In case you have noticed any signs of rats or mice in your home, do not hesitate to act.

Canberra Termites Control: Get rid of termites from your home

Canberra Termites Control

Canberra Termites Control

Canberra Termites Control. There is no doubt that the Australian vegetation is very diverse and dynamic. Everyday there are trees which die and at the same time new trees regenerate. Because of the many fallen trees and the dropped limbs, there are also shed barks and leaves which create a layer of litter in many woodland areas. Within this litter there is normally an amazing creature known as a termite. Termites feed on this cellular material and in the process convert it into soil. It has been established that there are around 2,500 different species of termites that exist around the world, and in Australia there are 350 species, but it is only 30 of them that are regarded as pests.

 

Termites normally have colonies which are well organized similar in so many ways to that of ordinary ants. In addition to having a king and a queen, they also have workers that take care of the feeding of the colony and soldiers that normally look after the protection of the colony. In most of our homes, we have kind of recreated the bush, and for this reason termites find a very perfect habitat in such places.

 

Canberra Termites Control At A1 Pest Control we have a team of expert who have specialized in termite detection and control. We normally identify a tree that is suspected to house the termites, drill into the trunk of the tree and place a temperature probe into the cavity to identify the location of the nest. This method is effective since the royal chamber, where the queen resides surrounded by the nursery, normally has a constant temperature of about 34 degrees C with high humidity. The tree that are mostly affected by termite damage are the almond trees and gum trees because they live for a very long time and as a result accumulate a lot of dead wood and barks as they are growing.

 

Canberra Termites ControlIn order to eradicate the termite nest, we normally use a controlling agent that is pumped into the nest and the hole sealed. We then lay a number of termite traps on your property in case there is still suspicion of the presence of termite activity in the area.We will then inspect these traps regularly so as to see if there is any termite activity. If we detect the presence of termites, we will use a large bait box that we normally install so as to concentrate the termite numbers. We normally put cells of wood in the bait box that put in place for about eight weeks, after which the entire colony is treated with a range of contact insecticides.

Get Canberra Termites Control at A1 Pest Control Canberra.

Even though you may be vigilant and also have put in place termite detection mechanisms, these destructive pests are still able to enter your home. One of the most visible indications may be slight discoloration of the surface of a wall, which is likely followed by warping in case it is wood paneling that is used for the wall lining.

Since termites are tropical insects, they normally create their own high humidity wherever they live. The damage caused by termites can be very huge and this is the reason why you should ensure they do not get a home in your property. Professional help is the best solution to termite problems since getting rid of them can be a very difficult process. In case you suspect you have a pest problem in your home, contact A1 Pest Control for Canberra Termites Control and we will act immediately.
