Perth’s most common pest problems: Is your home at risk?

19 Aug 2016

How can we Help?

Perth is a great place to live and raise a family – after all, you can’t beat the beaches and laid back lifestyle. However, like anywhere, living in Perth means your home is vulnerable to infestation from various pests, some more often than others. Let’s take a look at some of the most common pests found in Perth homes.

Perth pests – A closer look

Ants – In Perth homes, it often takes something as small as a few crumbs left on the kitchen bench to find a lengthy ant trail the next morning. Although ant infestations are more common in summer, they can cause issues in the home all year round and can also cause unsightly mounds of sand to appear around the perimeter of the home. Make sure you keep all food items sealed and keep surfaces clear of debris to deter ants.

Mosquitos – Nothing spoils a balmy Perth evening outside than the annoying whining sounds and the tell-tale itch around the ankles which announces that the mosquitoes have arrived. As the weather heats up, mosquitoes move in and are annoying for pets as well as people. Make sure you keep stocked up with mosquito coils and repellent to avoid the irritation of mosquitoes.

Flies – ‘The flies are bad this year’ is a phrase which is often heard if you live in Perth. Although flies are expected in the warmer months, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending all day making sure no flies sneak through an open door or chasing them through the house with fly spray. Flies can also cause issues for your pets as they can bite and cause infections. Make sure you have secure flyscreens over all windows and keep rubbish clear from the perimeter of the house to avoid attracting flies.

Cockroaches – Another pest that is common to Perth homes are cockroaches and it’s a sure sign that you have a problem when you see a cockroach run for cover when you turn on the light. In between pest inspections, have some cockroach baits on hand and keep food items sealed and secured.

What our Clients say

We had an appointment scheduled very quickly and easily with Bug Busters. Aaron was on time and a true professional. He was knowledgable, open, and explained the whole process easily and clearly. Gave us a guarantee that our problems would be solved and if there were any future issues he would attend to them himself with the utmost expedience. Aaron was a real pleasure to work with and i feel significantly more comfortable after working with him. Would recommend their services to anyone who needed them.

Chey Bowers

I found the young man named Deryn who came to deal with our rodent problem to be extremely polite, personable and knowledgeable. He was on time and friendly and knew a lot about the behaviours of the rat species. I would highly recommend Bug busters and will definately them for future pest problems when they arise.

Sarah Garrett

Bugbusters installed termite traps around my house and shed many years ago. Every 3 months the traps are inspected for any termite activity. At intervals the house, ceiling and shed are are checked for termites. They have also dealt with wasp infestations and put rat baits in the ceiling.. Their operatives have always been helpful and friendly. I would recommend Bugbusters to anyone.

Margo Beilby

I have used Bug Busters on a number of occassions over the last 15 years. The last time only a few days ago.. Derryn was absolutely client focussed; professional; neat and cleaned up impeccably my jarrah floors that had just been re varnished. I have no hesitation to recommend this company.. Five stars from me. Paul Vic Park.
