What is Pest Control?
The prevention and eradication of pest infestations is accomplished through the practise of pest control. It supports a healthy atmosphere and preserves the property’s structural integrity. Exclusion, repulsion, physical removal, and chemical methods can all be used to control pests. Here at Brisbane Terminator, we are the industry leading team when it comes down to pest control in Ipswich.
Benefits of Pest Control
Pest control is an efficient way to prevent pests that can potentially cause health issues and structural damage on any property. Controlling the infestation can mitigate the risks of costly repairs and other health-related issues. Pest control can help property owners to:
- 1. Determine pest activity and the source of the infestation.
- 2. Maintain a secure and healthy working environment for staff, clients and people.
- 3. Reduce the risk of contracting pest-borne illnesses.
- 4. Prevent intrusive visitors like termites, ants, and cockroaches that might harm a company’s reputation by entering.
- 5. Stop pests from harming physical assets.
The 3 Most Common Types of Pests
Unknowingly, pest infestations can happen in any area of a property, including the perimeter, basement, indoor areas, ceiling, etc. Pest inspections can help licensed pest control professionals identify potential pest problems and design control strategies. The most common types of pests identified during inspections are the following:
Termites are common in locations with wood, plaster, metal siding, and insulation, as well as places with favourable climates for their nesting. Government statistics estimate that termites alone cost the ANZ economy $3 billion in property damage each year. Termites attack the building’s support beams, floor joints, posts, ceiling joists, and wall studs, among other structural components. Swarming is one of the easiest methods to identify a termite infestation. When winged termites first appear within the property in the spring, swarming takes place. A termite inspection is advised to make sure that, if termites are present in the building, the infestation may be stopped right once.
Due to their tiny size and need to be close to a food supply, bed bugs are typically found in places that are frequently visited by people. Bed bug infestations can occur in hotel rooms, flats, college dorms, home bedrooms, and even business buildings. According to pest control statistics, 1 in 5 Australians have had bed bug infestations in their homes or have knowledge of someone who has. Bed bug bites can result in painful, red welts that put you at risk for secondary infections if you touch them.
Rodents can enter through foundations, floor, or wall cracks, property holes, pipes, or other openings. About 20% of the world’s food supply can be consumed or contaminated by it, and it can also result in the dangerous illnesses rat-bite fever, salmonella, trichinosis, murine typhus, plague, and leptospirosis. By gnawing on cables and leaking flammable or dangerous substances, rodents can seriously harm property, even starting fires. Maintaining a clean facility and following safe food storage recommendations helps solve these issues.
