There is no better time than right now to protect your home from nasty, annoying pests that like to invade and infest your home during the warmer months.
Treating your home professionally this spring will ensure that your home is 100% protected against cockroaches for the next 12 months. Cockroaches of all species are expected to be a big problem throughout Sydney this season.
This picture is a great example of why it’s important to have your home treated by Amalgamated Pest Control. The pests you can see in this picture are German Cockroaches, and were taken at a home we recently treated in Wentworthville.
The problem started when the home owner brought some German cockroach eggs into the home from items which were briefly in storage. German Cockroaches are often introduced into a home unknowingly by the home owner in this way.
Don’t wait until it’s too late!
One problem with curbing German cockroach activity is that they are often not really noticed until they are just about out of control. Luckily for this customer, they called Amalgamated Pest Control Sydney. Not only can we control German Cockroaches with ease, we were also able to give them a 12 month service warranty on the treatment, which includes our Guaranteed Gone promise: If the pests come back, so do we!
German Cockroaches will mostly be found in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry – areas of the home where food and water can be found. It’s well known that cockroaches can survive for long periods without food, but did you know that without access to water they will die in a short period of time? Our treatment will focus on these areas of your home – where the pests would live – to ensure that they won’t be there for at least the next 12 months.
Another cockroach that is commonly found in homes around Sydney is the American Cockroach. This pest tends to hide out in sub-floors, wall cavities and roof voids.
This photo was taken in a roof void of a home that had not had pest control treatment in a long time, resulting in an extensive cockroach infestation.
American Cockroaches droppings look similar to the untrained eye to mice droppings, which prompted this customer to call us because they believed they had a problem with mice. Once we completed our inspection, it was obvious that the problem wasn’t actually mice. We carried out our treatment for these pests, targeting roof void, wall cavities and sub-floors and ended up flushing out too many cockroaches to count.
Why wouldn’t pests want to live in your home?
One of the major problems with structures such as houses is that they are a perfect environment for pests. Think about it from a cockroach’s perspective. Inside a roof, under a house or in the cavities of a home is a great form of shelter, which is protected from the outside elements and predators and allows their population can continue to grow unchecked. It often also allows great access to food and water.
Populations that go unchecked can rise to large numbers very quickly due to rapid breeding cycles. Also, as many of these pests are introduced from their original environments such as sewers, they carry and can transmit diseases including salmonella and diptheria, contaminating food and food utensils while you sleep.
If your home is not treated by professional pest controllers, then pests like these will more than likely be living in areas you cannot see. They are nocturnal, so they will be out and about at night time, foraging around your home looking for food and water, crawling over bench tops, through drawers and cupboards in areas like your kitchen and bathroom.
When you wake up in the morning you will most likely have no idea that these pests have been crawling all over your knives and forks, on your plates, in your glasses or, even worse, crawling on your toothbrush. This is how they transmit diseases, and acan often be responsible for triggering allergies and asthma.
