With spring well and truly upon us now, pests have become very active across Benowa. Spring is the breeding season so a few pests can become hundreds quickly infesting homes and businesses in the area.
Recently we conducted a pest control service at a home in Benowa. Our customer had discovered a large number of ants climbing the walls around the front door and porch area. In addition, they noticed cockroaches scurrying around the home at night. They had tried to use products from Bunnings but this did not stop the pests.
We were able to locate the source or nest of the ants and effectively treat these pests with a gel and baiting product. We sprayed the affected areas inside the home and applied a barrier around the home to stop cockroaches. The good news is that this has stopped these pests from returning and our customer is very pleased.
The recent rain and warmer weather is perfect for these pests to thrive in. This is why it’s important to apply a pest control treatment now before it becomes a big problem.
Ant Control Benowa
As mentioned, ants are highly active right now in Benowa. These pests can easily access a home via cracks and crevices around doors and windows, setting up home in your home.
Typically, they will be found in wet areas such as the kitchen, laundry, bathroom and toilet rooms of a home. They are looking for food and water and a place to live. Once inside, they can multiply and become an annoying problem.
