St Albans is a great eastern suburb of Melbourne to live in. Our community is made up of a large number of different nationalities. In fact did you know that over 50% of our population was born overseas?
With our population coming from overseas, they are quite unaware of the pests that we have here in Australia.
St Albans residents are quite shocked to find spiders, rats and other bugs in their homes. This is something they just haven’t experienced overseas.
When they come across these pests they don’t know how to get rid of them or even where to start. This is why so many locals in St Albans call professionals like Jim’s for advice and treatments.
Jim’s Pest Control St Albans – common pests we find
St Albans has a wide range of pests. Some are quite sneaky and you won’t realise you have them until they are overrunning you home or business.
Cockroaches are common in the area and most kitchens will have one or two. These pests will rapidly breed if left alone.
Did you know that a cockroach egg sack can contain up to 32 babies? This enables cockroaches to breed fast and will often only take months to overrun a kitchen.
Other pests that are common in the areas include rats, mice, spiders, fleas, bedbugs, possums and birds.
We at Jim’s Pest Control St Albans have effective solutions to all of these pest problems.
Spiders pose a safety threat to locals
Spiders pose a real safety risk to locals in the area. Red back spiders are common and almost every house has one or two.
They usually tend to stay outside where they can catch food in the form of insects like mosquitoes and flies. During the daylight hours they tend to hide away from predators like birds.
When dusk arrives they will then venture out of their hiding spots and tend to their webs. Catching flying insects is easy for them, as the waterways in the area provide and abundant supply.
It is not uncommon for locals to be bitten by spiders when they pick up items left outside. This becomes a real concern for children who unknowingly pick up toys that may be a spider’s home.
Our technicians recommend to all clients to check toys and play equipment before allowing children outside.
If they are really concerned about spiders, then Jim’s Pest Control recommend that you have your yard treated often.
