Protect your outdoor area against uninvited guests

23 Nov 2016

How can we Help?

With the weather warming up, the household will be spending more time outdoors. That’s right! The Great Aussie Barbecue Season is almost here meaning long sunny afternoons in your outdoor area. It’s time to start thinking about pest control.

Sunday afternoons in Perth are meant for relaxing. What better way than having a few drinks in sun or putting on a BBQ for friends and family. Food on the table means the picnic pests will start swarming so here are some quick tips to keep your outdoors safe from uninvited guests.

Spiders

Everyone has at least one friend who is extremely afraid of spiders. That feeling of something crawling over your skin, is never nice especially when it could be an eight-legged insect. Spiders are sure to cause panic when dropping in unannounced.

Keep your outdoor area web-free by regularly cleaning any dark crevices they could be hiding in. Australia is home to some of the deadliest spiders in the world, so if you spot a problem it’s best to get on top of it quickly by calling in a pest control specialist.

Ants

These little creepy crawlies love the outdoors, meaning any outside activity is going to be under threat from these chronic party crashers. Ants are sociable bugs never going anywhere by themselves, so if you see one you can be assured there’s more on their way.

While they are small in size, they can actually cause some pretty big problems. The easiest way to keep them away is to keep your food covered up, as there is nothing worse than coming back to your half eaten potato salad and finding it swarming with ants. If you discover any nests being built, get these pests under control quickly before the whole neighbourhood moves in.

Mosquitoes

After a particularly wet winter in Perth, this summer is set to experience a mozzie onslaught so make sure defend yourself appropriately! Not only do they leave you with an itchy reminder you’ve been their latest, they can also carrier some pretty nasty viruses.

Mosquitoes breed in water, so keep an eye out for any possible infestations. Make sure you avoid getting bitten by keeping the fly screen doors closed and your indoors protected. If you’re outside also use mosquito repellent on any exposed ski and light mosquito coils or citronella candles around your entertaining areas as a deterrent.

Flies

There’s nothing more irritating than a fly buzzing around your face. They’re a common summer pest that is sure to arrive at the most inconvenient time, did someone say party?

Unfortunately, they always come bearing gifts in the form of some pretty nasty diseases as they spend a lot of time around waste and faeces. Keep your outdoor area fly free by keeping a lid on any rubbish bins, and covering up any plates food. Ensure the fly screens are always kept closed to avoid any slipping in and creating a problem indoors.

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.
