These are the top dangerous pests in Canberra that need pest control.

1) Termites, even though they are blind they have an acute smell for timber; the nest the “Queen Termite” produces up to 30,000 live termites PER DAY.

HOW TO STOP THEM?

Having a termite barrier and an annual inspection to detect them early before they do damage.

2) Birds like starlings and pigeons when roosting on rooftops near air conditioning and water tank poses potential health issues to humans.

The mess and the smell get bad and devalue your property, e.g. house or your car. The Duco can be permanently damaged. **Also, birds nesting attracts other pests.

HOW TO STOP THEM?

Regular pest control management for commercial properties.

4) European Wasps or Bees are dangerous to humans, especially when you get too close to the hive. For the EW, walk very slowly past the hive as they will signal the hive, and they will all attack, stinging each up to 9 times per wasp. Bees we try to call in the beekeeper if the hive is easy to relocate

DAMAGE BILL – It could cost a life if you, your child, or your pet is allergic to their sting.
