“Why should I have Pest Control carried out to my home in colder months” or “I will wait till it gets warmer”. These are quite common questions and answers we come across soon as the temperature gets cooler. These are fair questions and answers but “Don’t Be Fooled”. These little critters like warmth, especially Cockroaches and Rodents. Cockroaches breed all year round and they look for dark warm areas in our home where they can breed and nest like the back of our cupboards, cavity walls and ceiling voids. Come our warmer months, they start gaining energy and then you find that they start showing themselves around our homes and then they can be a bit of a problem. The idea is to treat our homes at least on a yearly basis to stop these pests breeding in our beloved home. You may have also noticed Rats, Mice and even Possums around your home in the cooler months. Well they too are looking for warmth and what better place to get it is in our homes. So at the quiet of night you might hear Rodents scratching and running about in your roof void or even behind your wall cavity or Possums thumping around inside your roof; these are smart little creatures as they will find any given entry point of your home to get into. If you are unsure of what you are hearing then be sure to call our office and one of our qualified serviceman can investigate to see what you have and carry out the appropriate action required. If it is a possum then our serviceman will safely catch it and return it to its natural habitat.
