Best Pest Management has compiled
some information on common pests found

These pests are found all throughout Australia and can carry
diseases with serious consequences such as salmonella,
gastro-enteritis, dysentery, tuberculosis, hepatitis, typhoid fever
and many others.
Diseases are carried on the legs and bodies of cockroaches and are
rubbed off onto food, cooking and eating utensils as they feed and
move around your kitchen, bathroom and other areas where conditions
Cockroaches like warm moist places and can be found in kitchens,
roof spaces, under houses, inside food stores, bakeries,
restaurants, hospitals, factories, garages, sheds, and especially
around drains and under leaf litter or bark litter outside.
Next time your Telstra technician pays you a visit, have a look
inside the junction pit. You might be amazed to find hundreds of
cockroaches breeding there. Another favourite hiding place for them
is inside the alarm system, especially in food stores and
restaurants. Some cockroaches will even make their home inside
refrigerator motors, microwaves, cordless jugs and cordless
Cockroaches contaminate, frighten the wife and kids, create bad
odours, cause allergic reactions in some people, and have even been
known to bite. Along with the rat, cockroaches are one of the most
efficient spreaders of disease and are prolific breeders, posing a
real threat to the health of yourself and your family.

If Termites Are found in your home the best thing you can do is
leave them alone and call a best pest management technician because
if you disturb their nesting area with bug spray etc then they are
likely to relocate making it hard to find them later and remove the
problem . Following Australian Standards 3660.2-200 , best pest
management technicians are required to give you a written report of
all treatment options for you to review and approve. Treatment could
be as simple as dusting but best pest management cater for bigger
treatments such as full in ground interception and baiting systems.
Once a suitable treatment has been agreed and acted upon best pest
management recommends annual termite inspections to keep your home
safe from termites

It can seem like a never ending job keeping up with spider and web
Most active in the summer months, spiders are out and about in the
evenings and nights, at the same time we humans are outside enjoying
the cool night air, and are sleeping with less bed linen than usual.
Best Pest Management can save you hours of work by spraying the
outside of your home and structures, as well as dusting the roof
space and other places where spiders like to make their home.
A rat is the world’s most resilient animal and is a major risk to
the health of the community. They can carry serious diseases such as
the plague, dysentery, leptospirosis and typhus fever.
Their fleas, lice and ticks can also adversely affect pets and
humans. Their excreta and hair contaminate food and utensils causing
Rodents can be controlled by denying them food and shelter, and by
trapping or baiting. Store firewood away from the sides of sheds and
fences where rats like to travel. Remove garden clippings and mow
long grass around the house and yard.
Block holes and other potential access points around all buildings
and at access points in the eaves and gutters. Store bulk pet food
in sealed containers.
Bee swarms are generally seen during spring, and when they decide to
settle in your yard they can be potentially dangerous for humans as
well as pets.
Do not attempt to treat them yourself using a store bought aerosol
spray can, water or smoke. You are risking your safety and that of
Wait till the bees have congregated in one place, and are no longer
swarming. This could take up to an hour or more.
If bees have entered your home or a shed looking for a place to
nest, close off the section they are in, and lock the doors so no
one can enter and place themselves in danger.
Call Best Pest Management as soon as possible to have the swarm
safely relocated or eradicated.
