Fleas can live on any warm-blooded animal, but seem to prefer to live on cats, dogs, possums, rats and other rodents. They can also be found on shoes, pant legs, blankets or where pets like to lay. Fleas can also transfer tapeworms and cause anemia in pets. Flea bites cause painful, itchy red bumps.

We treat all external pathways, patio areas, lawns and areas where your pets most frequent. As well as internal floor coverings including carpeted and tiled areas.

If you are having a flea treatment, we recommend that prior to treatment the property is thoroughly vacuumed, floors mopped, your petโ€™s bedding is removed and treated or replaced, plus your pets flea and tick treatments are up to date!

Using these methods we are completely confident that your property will be flea free and always offer a full 12 month warranty on this type of treatment.

Do houses with concrete slabs require a timber pest inspection?

Yes. The concrete slab is in contact with the ground. Termites can enter through gaps in the slab, through cracking and also through areas where the slab has been penetrated to install pipes for water, electricity, and drainage.

Extensions requiring an adjoining section of concrete slab may also create a gap for termites to enter the dwelling and have access to the internal structures.

Spring is the season for termite swarms - if you see termites on your property you can expect to only see more as the summer goes on.

Termite control is an absolute must if you suspect theyโ€™re in your house. Once theyโ€™ve found a food source (wood structures on your property) and established a colony it takes serious measures to remove them!

Here what you should do immediately if youโ€™ve discovered termites:

- Donโ€™t spray the termites with anything.
- Donโ€™t remove any wall material or damage any more framing or timber.
- Find yourself some masking tape or gafa tape and cover up any holes or cracks and call us immediately, the less disturbance the better and it is important for us to be able to identify the species of termite that you have just discovered to help us plan the best solution for eradication.

The most effective termite treatments start with a thorough inspection of the property to identify the species and the most effective method that suits your property and budget.

There are a number of eradication methods such as termite baiting, dusting, foaming, and liquid injection which we will discuss with you after the inspection.

Once the termites have been eliminated we will recommend the next steps to preventing future termite attack.

We use bait gels, liquid sprays, insecticidal dusts, and granules to control ants, and we are completely confident that your property will be ant free. We always offer a full 12-month warranty on this type of treatment โšก๏ธ

Fact of the day - Did you know that if you see cockroach's around your house it doesn't mean that your house is dirty. ๐Ÿ˜

This is a common misconception that we often hear. Even though thorough cleaning can help reduce the risk it won't eliminate them completely. Cockroaches are commonly found in buildings and homes because they prefer warm environments close to food and water. Unfortunately, cockroaches can cause allergies and trigger asthma attacks, especially in children. They can also spread nearly 33 different kinds of bacteria.๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Here are some tips to be rid of roaches ๐Ÿ‘‡

โžก๏ธ Clean up after all food preparation
โžก๏ธ Seal bins tightly and empty regularly
โžก๏ธ Regularly vacuum pet hair and clean bowls
โžก๏ธ Keep up to date with your annual pest control treatments

This week we started installing bird netting to some horse stables around the Gold Coast turf club. After 2 months of our pigeon trapping and removal program we have removed over 400 pigeons from this one stable and now by netting all of the stables we can assure pigeons will have no where to nest which will help prevent this type of large infestation in the future. The hardest part about this has been working around the horses as they are out training. We have used 19mm netting for this job as it is specifically for all species of bird.

Pigeons had set up multiple nests under the panels and all the panels where completely covered in droppings. We have removed the pigeons and nests and now we are installing bird proofing the panels to prevent other birds roosting under the panels. We will also arrange to have the panels washed down so the client can start get the most out of the solar panels again. Do you have solar panels ?

Through the week we returned to the Arundel property where we had the termite bait station feeding termites on the wall for the past 8 weeks. The termites have successfully been eliminated so we removed the box and cut open the wall to inspect the damage. In this case the client has been lucky and there is only minor damage in the wall. Our builder will now carry out the repairs and we have installed a full termite baiting and monitoring system to the perimeter of the property to ensure this doesnโ€™t happen again. This could have been a lot worse if left any longer. When was the last time you had your house inspected ?? Book now !! ...
