If you have a home or apartment in Broadbeach, there’s a high chance that you’ve experienced seeing pests in and around your home.

Typical pests like ants, cockroaches, spiders and even termites can find their way into and around your home, causing discomfort and potential damage to your home.

If you manage a restaurant or cafe in Broadbeach, you probably already know that pests often find their way to the establishment, inside and out, causing licensing issues and potentially unhappy customers.

The good news is, Safehouse Pest Control have local knowledge of what pests are active and when and how to get rid of pests fast.

Recently, we conducted Broadbeach Pest Control Services at a highrise apartment in Broadbeach where our customer had discovered cockroaches and ants scurrying around the home. Despite the location of the apartment some 10 floors up from the ground, these pests had made their way inside.

We were able to locate where they were entering the home and took measures to treat the access point and the harborage areas in the home. We gave advice on sealing up cracks and crevices around the entry door to stop these pests entering. These pests have not since returned.

Spring is the peak season for pests so it’s not uncommon to see these pests active in homes and businesses in the area.

How do you control Spring Pests?

As mentioned, pests including ants, cockroaches and spiders are highly active at this time of year.

It’s important to get them under control quickly as they can cause damage to homes and create health issues for people.

Some ants can inflict a nasty and painful bite to an unwitting victim. If you suffer from anaphylaxis, treat the bite with an ice pack and call Triple 000 if you have breathing difficulties.

Cockroaches are not only unpleasant to look at but are very unhygienic. They can leave waste around the home and create issues in kitchens and food preparation areas. In addition, they can cause issues for people with asthma. They can quickly multiply in high numbers and infest a property without being seen.

Australia is home to some of the most dangerous spiders in the world including the Funnel Web and Redback Spider. Other species can create unwanted webs around homes, external areas and access the inside, hiding in cupboards and forming webs on cornices. If you notice a spider and are unsure what type it is, stay away from it and call your pest controller.

DIY Tips

Here’s a list of DIY tips you can follow to help reduce pests at your home or apartment:

  • Wipe up the kitchen bench after preparing food and dispose of waste items in a sealed bag.
  • Ensure all stored food is kept in sealed containers.
  • Repair any cracks or crevices in window frames and under doors. Seal these areas with a filler product or weatherstrip.
  • Repair damaged fly screens on windows.
