Australia is blessed naturally with jaw-dropping natural wonders and attractions. The thriving professional culture of the dynamic cities here with an impressive quality of life and great outdoor lifestyle facilities make Australia rank among the best places on earth to live. But, every good thing comes with a few challenges as well.
Australia owing to its vast and versatile resources attract not just humans but pests of all kinds to its continent. It is true that pest problems are not restricted to any geographical limits. It is a problem people deal with worldwide. Nevertheless, Australia is the home to arrays and also some of the world’s worst and hardly spotted creepy crawlers.
Maybe not all these pests are direct threats to humans but cohabiting with them under the same roof or in close proximation to them can be challenging. Pest infestation always puts elderly people and children at risk. We all are vulnerable to it irrespective of age but they are the worst sufferers along with our furry friends (pets at home).
In addition to it, the financial issues that start arising for attending to the damages caused by pest infestation severely tax both the physical and mental health of the people.
The financial, mental, and physical stress of cohabiting with pests is too much to not take steps for their relocation or total eradication from the area (if necessary).
The list will contain a lot of pests that the continent harbours but the blog here sheds light on two small-sized but utterly annoying ones.
The world hail Australia as the “spider capital”, something not to feel very proud about. Over 2000 species of spiders find Australia their “home sweet home”. Though non-aggressive creatures, spiders crawling inside the home are not a pleasant and safe scenario. They play a crucial role in maintaining the eco-balance but inside houses and offices, they are the pests.
Hideous as they are to most people, dark hideouts are their comfort zones. They enter inside through gaps in flooring, windows, cracks and crevices.
Some common household spider posts are Huntsman Spiders, Funnelweb Spiders, White-tailed Spiders and Mouse Spiders. The largest spider is the Eastern Tarantula found in Australia.
Spiders don’t bite unless provoked or they feel threatened. But, tolerating their presence for this cannot be a sensible decision. Erase the threat by calling Al-Maani Pest Control to chase off spiders from your property via expert spider treatment services. Also, get rid of the creepy-looking cobweb they build at your place.
Any property owner hates them like anything for obvious reasons. Causing around $700 million worth of damages to households annually across the continent, these pests are pretty expensive!
Giant Northern Termite wears the crown of being the most destructive termite. Coptotermes happen to be the most hated termite in Australia due to their property devastating tendencies.
Termites feed on wood and harvested crops. There are three types of termites namely Dry Wood, Subterranean and Damp Wood.
Reports show that 1 in every 3 houses in Australia is infested with termites. Termite infestation needs immediate expert attention or the damages will be too expensive to bear. They lay around 2000 eggs each day!
