Are there pests in your life? Are you tired of seeing pests invade the food in your pantry? Are you embarrassed to invite people over because of your pests? You do not have to put up with pests anymore. This article will teach you how you can get rid of your pests effectively and safely with a natural pest control in Sydney.

 

If you have children, explain to them the rules around the house for eating. Make sure that you designate only one area of the home for eating to help reduce any infestations that you may have. If all members of the house are responsible for what they do, you will have less of a pest problem.Non-Toxic-Pest-Control

Don’t keep food out. Every time you make a meal, make sure to cover it and even better, put it in the refrigerator or in an air-tight container. Pests are better at smelling than people are, and if they smell something tasty, they are going to come looking for it. Make sure you don’t leave food out too long.

 

Store flour, cereals, sugar, and other dry goods in sealed plastic, glass, or metal containers. This prevents invasions of pantry moths, weevils, ants, and even mice in your kitchen. Do not count on cardboard or other flimsy packaging to keep pests out. Mice can chew through them, and insects can penetrate tiny openings even plastic.Pest-Control

 

Do you have a problem with rodents invading your home? Walk around the perimeter of your home and try to locate small cracks that might be allowing pests inside. Fill cracks or install a metallic piece of mesh to eliminate those entry points. This is a great non toxic and organic way of doing pest control.

Be preventative, not just reactive. Yes, you want to eliminate those pest problems in a natural, non toxic and organic way, but be sure to also treat how the problem began in the first place. Is there a crack in your flooring that brought pests in? Get it fixed. Is there a habit that food is left out? Change the practice. This will keep these pests from coming back again and again.

Posted by admin

Yesterday we received a call from a chemist and his wife who live up in Newcastle. They wanted our advise on what to look for in a pest control company and what to stay away from. Since we service Sydney and not their area, below are a few things you should question when your looking for a pest control company.

Pest problems arise from time to time that may require you to seek help controlling the pest from a professional pest controller. It can be daunting to choose a pest control company. Don’t rush into a decision. Consider talking with several companies before deciding on one. Even if your pest problem is urgent, take time to look for a reputable and knowledgeable company that meets your standards.

1Research the internet for reviews of the pest control

company?

These days, one of the best ways is to jump on the internet and check reviews from the pest control companies in your area. That will give you an idea of they performance and how well they meet their clients expectations.

After selecting a few, give them a call, see how they answer the phone are they welling to discuss your pest problems, does it sound like they care or they just want to book you in?

 

 

Calling the pest control company?

Ask them what kind of products they use and if they are willing to send you the MSDSs(Material Safety Data Sheets) of the product that they normally use to deal with your pest problem. Are those products safe for your health, children, pets and the environment?

Ask them how they apply those products and where they will apply them?

Are they happy to share estimations of the cost up front?

On arrival

How much time will they spend on your property, are they rushing around your property, a good pest control company will spend a good 30 to 45 min around your property at the start of their service just to determine the, what issues you have, level of infestation and the hot spots.

2Can the company identify the pests, explain the extent of the infestation, and provide details about the pest and its behavior?

Are they willing to discuss low-toxicity options and reducing environmental risks?

Do they have a strategy or advices to give you at the end of the treatment to avoid getting pests in the first place?

Check they have sufficient insurance, accidents do happen and if they don’t have insurance, you are facing the hassle and cost.

Ask them about the service warranties, are they willing to come back if the pests do and will it be any additional cost?

3
On arrival again request MSDS and don’t feel afraid to ask for the pest control license of the technician.You will be surprise of the amount of cowboys that are out there that do not have a license and are practicing this trade.

At the end of the treatment don’t forget to jump on the net and review their performance and efficacy, poor or great. It is crucial that the general public know what types of companies are out there and how much they care about satisfying your pest control needs.

 

It may sound like a lot to ask but remember that your health and the health of your family is at stake.

Cockroaches Control in Sydney

Posted by admin

How to get rid of cockroaches in your home in Sydney?

The cockroach is believed to spread a range of disease-producing organisms to humans including salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus. Cockroaches prefer warm, humid conditions with a ready food source.

What are cockroaches?

Cockroaches are one of the most commonly noted household pest insects and there are many species of cockroaches. They feed on human and pet food, and can leave an offensive odor. They can also passively transport microbes on their body surfaces including those that are potentially dangerous to humans. Cockroaches have been known to be linked with allergic reactions in humans. One of the proteins that trigger allergic reactions has been identified as tropomyosin. These allergens have also been linked to asthma, there for a treatment for cockroaches needs to be eco friendly.

German-Cockroach-german-cockroaches-german-cockroach-control-cockroach-control-sydney-cockroaches-control_01Cockroaches leave chemical trails in their feces, as well as emitting airborne pheromones for swarming and mating. These chemical trails transmit bacteria onto surfaces. Other cockroaches will follow these trails to discover sources of food and water, and also discover where other cockroaches are hiding. Thus, cockroaches can exhibit emergent behavior, in which group or swarm behavior emerges from a simple set of individual interactions.

Cockroaches are generally omnivorous that basically mean that they can eat anything.

Cockroaches Control can be difficult in Sydney. By nature, cockroaches are survives that breed really quickly and that means that if you see a few crawling around they can easily become hundreds in a matter of weeks.

Cockroaches may spread a range of diseases.

It is believed that the cockroach may be a reservoir for a range of bacteria including salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus. The cockroach can also harbour viruses.

German-Cockroach-german-cockroaches-german-cockroach-control-cockroach-control-sydney-cockroaches-control_02-236x300Like the household fly, the cockroach will eat virtually anything ranging from food spills on a kitchen floor to fecal matter. Ingested bacteria can survive in the cockroach’s digestive system, sometimes for months or even years, and are passed in its droppings. Cockroaches will vomit and defecate on food and it is thought that disease may be transmitted to humans when humans eat food contaminated by cockroaches.

Recent research suggests that the cockroach may also be associated with human allergies and that is a fear factor to be acknowledged.

 

Where cockroaches live and there common hiding spots in your home?

Cockroaches prefer to live in kitchens and other food preparation areas, so they can feed off food spills and have access to water. Hiding spots for the household cockroach include:

  • Cracks in walls
  • Confined spaces, such as behind the refrigerator, in a pantry or underneath a stack of magazines, newspapers or cardboard boxes
  • Any furniture items that are generally left undisturbed
  • Kitchen cupboards
  • Below sinks
  • In the dishwasher
  • In the Microwaves
  • Around hotwater systems
  • In drains and grease traps
  • Gardens

Getting rid of cockroaches in Sydney can be quiet difficult.

Here we offer homeowners these tips to protect their families and properties from cockroach infestations in Sydney:

  • Keep a spotless kitchen and other food preparation areas. Clean behind and under appliances regularly, as these are favourite hiding spots for cockroaches where crumbs and trash are more likely to build up.
  • Do not leave fruit or food on the kitchen benches overnight.
  • Keeping all food stored away in sealed containers.
  • Dispose of garbage regularly and store in sealed containers.
  • Vacuum. Early and often is best for reducing harmful cockroach allergens.
  • It is also helpful to seal off any entry points, such as holes around baseboards, between kitchen cabinets, pipes, doors, and windows with some steel wool or copper mesh and some cement, putty or silicone caulk.
  • Keep basements and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry
  • Don’t water the cockroaches! Cockroaches can survive months without eating, but they need a daily source of water to thrive. Never leave water in the sink, in dirty dishes, or other areas of the house. Check other sources of water as well, such as leaky plumbing, under- refrigerator dampness, and concrete sweating. Wipe all traces of water from the sink after you’ve done the dishes and wipe down the bath area after use.
  • Thoroughly clean the house at least weekly.
  • Clean regularly underneath the fridge, stove, toaster and other movable appliances.
  • Do not leave out pets’ food or food scraps in pet bowls.
  • Clean up any food spills promptly.
  • Repair any holes, cracks or gaps in the walls, skirting boards and inside cupboards.
  • Don’t stack newspapers, magazines or cardboard boxes anywhere in the house.
  • Clothes and other household articles should not be kept on the floor.
  • Screening windows and doors.
  • Keep compost bins screened and away from the house.
  • Try to keep rubbish bins away from your house.
  • Trim bushes near air vents to keep cockroaches from getting into the house.
  • Keep your yard clean and rubbish free and make adequate arrangements for both liquid and solid waste disposal.

Act quickly. If you find evidence of an infestation, contact a licensed pest professional to inspect and treat the cockroach problem with an organic cockroach control treatment. Once you’ve seen cockroaches in your home or apartment, odds are there are many more out of view and if left unattended for a long period of time may result in getting rid of cockroaches, that more costly for you.
