Ascot – Brisbane is well known for its heritage, beautifully appointed homes and popular location just north of Brisbane.
Like all suburbs of Brisbane, Ascot has its fair share of pests becoming increasingly more active during the recent wet weather and hot days.
We’ve received a number of calls from residents in the area concerned with seeing more pests in their homes, particularly in the lead up to Christmas.
We recently completed a pest control service Ascot in a newly renovated Queenslander home. The homeowner was concerned with the high number of cockroaches in and around the home, together with ants.
Fortunately, we were able to identify the source of the problem and apply a treatment inside the home and around the home’s perimeter to stop the cockroaches. We also treated the outside areas and wet areas of the home, bathrooms and kitchen areas to stop the ants.
Our customer has advised there are no more cockroaches or ants shortly after. This home will be protected from these pests for the next 12 months for cockroaches and six months for ants.
Summer Pests Ascot
As mentioned, the summer season can bring an increased amount of pests to homes and businesses across the Brisbane area.
Higher temperatures and wet weather combined with humidity are the perfect conditions for cockroaches, ants, spiders and mosquitoes.
It’s important to protect your home as soon as possible before these pests breed up and infest your home or business.
Cockroaches are well known for creating an unsightly mess and are unhygienic and can affect some people who suffer from asthma. Spraying supermarket or Bunnings products typically do not work well and are expensive to buy.
A professional pest control service will target the specific pests and use treatment methods that are designed to stop these types of pests and create a barrier around your property.
Our cockroach treatment costs $145.00 and takes one (1) hour to complete. You may also consider having a General Pest service done to stop cockroaches, ants and spiders as well.
Ants can easily find their way into your home. You may notice them outside tracking up walls or around windows. This is a sign that they are attempting to gain entry to the home.
Our ant control treatment will stop ants outside. If ants are inside, we can apply treatment techniques to stop them fast.
There are things you can easily do to help reduce the chance of cockroaches and other summer pests at your home. These include:
- Ensure outdoor garbage bins are cleaned and rubbish is bagged and sealed.
- Clean the bin with a hose and disinfectant regularly.
- Seal up any cracks or crevices on windows and doors from the outside.
- Remove uneaten pet foods from bowls and clean.
- Clean any BBQ’s and remove grease spill waste.
- Ensure stored foods in the kitchen are kept in a sealed container.
