Living and running a business in the Brisbane area means home and business owners alike suffer from the dangers and pitfalls of Brisbane pests. Being specialists in Pest Control North Brisbane, we know that our temperate, subtropical climate is the perfect environment for nature and wildlife to thrive; which includes pests. In an ideal world, we would all like 2017 to be free of mosquito bites, scuttling cockroaches and annoying flying bugs. Here are our top tips to ensure your home or business have the best chance of staying pest-free this year.

Recap of what didn’t work in 2016 when it comes to Pest Control Ipswich

What were your top problems last year? Did you kitchen have a constant line of ants leading to your pantry? Or perhaps you just couldn’t get on top of that cockroach problem in your cafe. Through our Pest Control Ipswich we know that unfortunately no property can ever be 100% pest free, but it’s important to know what your top targets will be.

If you managed to catch those few mice with your own traps, and they haven’t returned, it’s instead important to focus on the methods that didn’t get the results you were after. If you’ve tried a few DIY ways to solve your pest problems and they keep coming back, it’s time to call in the experts.

Book your annual termite inspection

Too many Brisbane homes leave their termite protection to chance. If you haven’t read our recent article on swarming termites, make sure you’re familiar with the risks that come along with the warmer weather. The best protection against termites is to ensure you’re up-to-date with your annual termite inspections. That way if we find signs of an infestation we can address them early. This gives us a greater chance of success, less risk of damage to your property, and potentially less cost of treatment as the issue is still small.

Invest in a treatment plan
