Homeowners in the North Coast like you can carry out a basic visual inspection of the premises of the home or office. In tropical climates similar to ours, pests can find a great environment to flourish. This is especially before and after the arrival of summer. It is during this time when you need to carry out a check for water leaks and the associated damage. Excessive moisture inside the walls and indoors often attract unwanted guests like termites into your house. According to our building and pest inspectors who serve customers in the North Coast, in addition to the 300 different species of termites seen in this part of Australia, the residents also face the issues of:
- Cockroaches – Australian cockroach, smokey brown cockroach and American cockroach are common variants seen in kitchens, under the sink, in basements as well as outdoors.
- Bed bugs – They are very difficult to detect due to their elusive lifestyle. Common indicators include waking up with itchy rashes and blood marks on the sheets.
- Ants – Black house, green or green head and fire ants are common pests observed in these areas. As per the inspectors, some ants can be very harmful to humans, for e.g., fire ants.
- Wasps – The Yellowjacket, European and English wasps make nests of chewed wood pulp and saliva. These pests start off small in size, with their growth often escalating in favorable conditions.
Coming to the solution for the aforementioned pests, thermal imaging is one of the latest technologies used by our experts at InspectIt Homes to identify and control pests along with choosing the right option among remedial measures.
