Rats living in and around your homes are potentially dangerous to your health through spread of disease such as Weil's Disease (Leptospirosis). This a bacterial infection, you can contract it if you come into contact with the urine, blood, or tissue of the rodents that are infected with the bacteria. This disease can be potentially fatal if contracted. Rats are also responsible for causing house fires all over Australia, they need to chew on hard objects in order to keep their incisor teeth short. This is often electrical wiring being gnawed on which can cause an electrical short and sparks, potentially starting fires in roof voids.

There are thousands of different species of spiders all over the world. The majority of spiders are not deadly to humans. though more dangerous situations can occur when us humans and our beloved pets come in contact with spiders such as the Redback spiders, trap door spiders, white-tailed spiders, mouse spiders, funnel- web spiders etc. The majority of spiders living in our homes are more of an annoyance particularly their webs which is an unsightly mess for most people. Ground dwelling spiders are nocturnal so they are very active at night, and like to hide out in sheltered places such storage area's in old boxes, timber stacks, garden mulch, kids play equipment, inside shoes etc. When working in the garden it's a good idea to wear gloves, and be very cautious moving sheets of iron and building materials you may have stored around your property. Controlling spiders in your home takes an integrated approach through chemical control by hiring a professional pest control company. Also cleaning webs down using a broom and vacuuming under couches, tables, behind curtains etc.
More about ticks
Ticks are found in a variety habitats across the coastal regions of eastern Australia and can be found all year round. Bandicoots are common hosts as are many mammals and pets like dogs are frequency infested. Paralysis ticks initially cause local itchiness and a hard lump at the site of the bite, followed by more serious symptoms presenting themselves over a number of days. These include flu like symptoms, rashes, an unsteady gait, weak limbs and partial face paralysis. Other problems associated with Paralysis Tick bites are allergic reactions ranging from mild itching and swelling to potentially life threatening anaphylactic shock. Children are the most susceptible to problems caused by ticks as they may not be able to communicate they have been bitten and so ticks can be feeding on them for a number of days by which time their symptoms are quite advanced.

Tips and information on pest control
Getting the most out of a pest control treatment in Cairns and having it done right the first time, is what we all want. Before your pest controller arrives at your property, it is a good idea to do a quick clean up. This will allow for a far better pest control treatment for you. Items such as clothing, shoes, kids toys, pet bowls etc, should be pick up off the floor or moved away from the wall edges prior to treatment. For external area's, having your lawn cut before we arrive is ideal especially when treating for fleas, ticks and ants around your property. Stored items against externals walls should be moved away temporarily, this will allow for a good clean continuous barrier around the external wall edges. At Homeguard Pest Services - Pest Control Cairns, we are always happy to provide advice on preventive measures you can do, which will greatly reduce pest infestations in your home.
There are a few things you can do to reduce the threat of termites around your home in Cairns. Firstly getting an annual or biannual termite inspection is highly recommended. Also removing dead trees, stumps and branches from your yard, keeping any stored timbers off the ground. Removing garden beds and foliage from direct contact to your building and repairing any leaking taps around your property. Bathrooms, laundry and kitchen area's should be checked for possible leaks or water damage, these area's are often the first point of entry when termites are active in your house. Air conditioning and hot water overflows should be plumbed into available storm water pipes where possible, or at least directed away from walls to prevent moisture from accumulating along slab edges. These are just a few jobs you can do around your house, that will greatly reduce conducive conditions for termite activity, in and around your property.
Some house sites around Cairns can pose unique challenges when considering a termite management system for your property. A lot of aspects of building design and construction will need careful consideration. Existing properties with low to ground decks around pools, patios with concealed slab edges, benched house sites utilizing retaining walls as part of the main structure. If your considering getting a extension built to your home, there will be potentially unprotected area's between new an existing structures where termites can gain access to structural timbers. Having a termite management system installed could save you major repair costs down the road. At Homeguard Pest Services - Pest Control Cairns, we offer a range of termite management systems from FMC, BASF and DOW to accommodate any building design and construction methods.
