Springtime in Tweed Heads can be a beautiful time of the year with plenty of outdoor activities to do.

It’s also the peak season for pests who are keen to make your home theirs at your expense. Homes on the coastal fringe and river areas can become susceptible to a variety of common pests who can quickly infest a home. The good news is that pests can be controlled and removed from your property.

Recently, we conducted a Tweed Heads Pest Services at a home on the Tweed River where our customer had discovered ants and cockroaches inside and outside their home in large numbers. Despite the fact the home was clean and well organised, these pests found their way in.

Cockroaches had entered the home in the kitchen and bathroom with ants also seeking food in the kitchen and on the window sills of the bathroom and living area.

We were able to locate the source of the pests and apply an effective treatment to stop and protect the home area moving forward.

What’s Included In The Service?

Upon arrival at your home, we will ask you where you’re seeing pests around the property.

Next, we will conduct a thorough inspection inside and out of the home to locate the harbourage areas of the pests and identify exactly what pests are present and the size of the problem.

Now we can formulate a specific solution that is tailored to the pest situation. Typically this will involve the use of chemicals formulated to stop certain pest species. We can also use environmentally friendly natural methods to control some pests. This will be applied to the target areas of the home including the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry. We will also apply the treatment to living areas and bedrooms if required.

If you or any member of your family suffers from asthma or respiratory problems, please advise us before we start.
We may ask that any pests be moved temporarily for their safety.

In addition, we will apply a barrier treatment around the perimeter of the house. This will create a barrier to stop pests crawling over the treated areas into the home.

Once the service is completed, we will advise you on what was done, how long it will take to dry, when you can reopen windows and return your pet safely plus DIY tips to keep pests at bay.

DIY Tips

There are things you can easily do to reduce pest activity and stop them from entering your home, these are:

  • Wipe up the kitchen after preparing food and dispose of waste items in a sealed bag for the garbage.
  • Ensure stored foods are kept in sealed containers.
