Mcgraths Hill Termites
A Sydney dwelling survey of many hundreds of houses carried out in New South Wales from 1980 to 1983 shows that one house in every five Sydney homes had active termites or had a termite history. Mcgraths Hill is no different.
Identification of the Sydney termite species is important. as many species require no action and expensive control measures against these destroy client confidence in the pest control industry generally.
The dry wood termites present special problems particularly since soil barrier treatments are of no value here. Once a Sydney pest controller has given a pest client all the facts concerning the Termite infestation it is the decision of the client whether the termite treatment is done. It is normal practice to obtain more than one extermination quotation and the client should have the termite species identified.
What type of termites do I have?
Termites, insects belonging to Order Isoptera, are usually called white ants, however, apart from their social habit of living in colonies and consisting of several forms or castles, they do not resemble true ants.
Mcgraths Hill Termites are mostly pale Brown to White, have no constriction between thorax and abdomen, and have beaded antennae. reproductive thorns have two pairs of equal wings and one pair of compound eyes. Workers and soldiers are blind, sexless, and wingless and have thin cuticles that are sensitive to desiccation in dry or exposed environments.
Ants, on the other hand, vary from Brown to Black depending on the species. and have an obvious constriction between the thorax and their abdomen. Antennae are variable, but often characteristically elbowed. they have two pairs of wings, unequal so they can exist outside the more humid environment of The Colony.
Carpenter ants are true ants, some of which belong to Genus Camponotus and often occupy similar environments in trees to termites, But unlike termites, they are not sound timber Destroyers. Living indicates that they excavate for themselves.
3 Termite signs to look for:
The first sign to look for is discarded wings. You may not know it but Mcgraths HillTermites do have wings, they just get rid of them right away. what happens is that they may fly from one colony to another and if they decide that they will stay to build a new home, they actually discard their wings and leave them behind.
An interesting thing you may not know is that termites have very thin skin. They can dehydrate and dry out rather quickly and so they need to live in a super humid environment. Usually in more moist areas will be preferred by termites. The mud tubes are a way of maintaining their humid environment and moving around safely. The mud tubes are around pencil-sized and are often located in foundation areas of your property. Once inside, termites can create thousands of dollars of damage within your Mcgraths Hill home.
More difficult to spot because the termites are within the wood actually eating it. Eaten timbers can weaken the structure of your home. If you notice little tiny holes in timber anywhere it could be a sign of termite activity. Sometimes knocking on the wood to see if it sounds hollow can help. Bowed timber floors can be a sign as well as squeaky floorboards.

Hills District pest control. Mcgraths Hill pest services.
A favbourite feeding ground for mice and rats is around your garbage area. By keeping rubbish bags concealed and in a bin, you lower the risk of a mouse or rat infestation.
3 Rodent signs to look for:
The colour of fresh droppings is black and wet. When Mcgraths Hill rat and mouse droppings dry out and grow old and grey, they crumble readily when touched. Near food packages, in drawers or cabinets, behind sinks, in concealed spaces, and along rat tracks are the most likely places to find droppings. Most droppings will be found where the rats are nesting or feeding, therefore investigate the area around the new-found droppings to see if the infestation is still active (or new).
These are frequently found on food packaging or in the structure of a home. Comparing a gnaw mark you just saw with others on a similar material that you know is older is one approach to assess age. If the newly discovered marks are lighter in colour, it could indicate that the infestation is still going on. The nibble marks can also reveal whether you have rats or mice; greater gnaw marks suggest that rats have larger teeth. If you previously had a Mcgraths Hill mouse infestation but suddenly find greater gnaw marks, you may have rats. in your Mcgraths Hill home.
There is a Foul Odour
If rodents are active in Mcgraths Hill, cats and dogs (or even a pet rat or mouse) may become active and excited. This is caused by the odour of rat urine and is particularly common when rodents have recently entered a structure. Get a torch and search the area for rats or mice if you notice your pet pawing at an area in which it had previously shown no interest. If you have a huge infestation, you may notice a persistent stale ammonia odour coming from hidden spots, which indicates an active infestation.

Bird Lice and Humans
Once in the living area of a Mcgraths Hill house, the mites bite people in search of food. The mite, therefore, bites the human skin and injects saliva which leads to irritation. As a result, the skin becomes itchy, swells, and has raised pink spots on the skin. When the spots start to appear, it is then that people realise they may have been bitten by a bird mite!
How Did I Get Bird Lice?
Domestic birds in Mcgraths Hill, like chickens and parrots, may carry these lice on their feathers and bodies. When the parasites infect pets or wild birds in the house, they may cause problems for homeowners, as well. Nesting sites close to vents and windows or pet cages indoors give bird lice easy access to living spaces.
How Serious Are Bird Lice?
While most bird lice species stay on their avian hosts throughout their lives, Mcgraths Hill residents still have issues with the pests. The parasites sometimes bite people who handle infested birds.
They do not carry diseases dangerous to humans, but severe infestations can be fatal for poultry or pets.
Controlling these Mcgraths Hill pests begins by identifying the source of the infestation. Due to a large number of bird lice species and their rapid rate of infestation, All Guard Pest Control professionals will need to be consulted to manage the population.

3 Bird mite signs to look for:
Itchy Irritable Skin
Itchy bites are a sign of a bird-mite infestation. The bite regions are extremely itchy, particularly late at night or early in the morning. A 'crawling' sensation is occasionally reported as a symptom induced by the mites injecting saliva during feeding.
Little dark spots
Bird mites (another name for Bird lice) have a yellow coloured body that is less than 1mm in size and 8 legs. Surprisingly, once the mite had a feed of the bird’s blood, its body changes colour to dark red or black, eventually. Also, look for masses in the corners of a room or closet.
If you're scratching a lot and feel a crawling sensation in your hair, it could be bird lice. The mites when feeding can be quite irritating and you will know if they are present.

Mcgraths Hill Flea Treatments
Flea identification: Fleas in Mcgraths Hill are a reddish/ brown, wingless blood-sucking parasite type of common household pest. Sometimes they are mistaken for bed bugs in the Mcgraths Hill area. Fleas range from 0.5 mm (from birth) to about 3.5mm in length (adults). They survive by biting/ ingesting the blood of their host, causing itchy irritated skin. Some people can even be allergic to their bite. They have a rather tough exterior for their size and also have the ability to jump many times their body height.
Where in Mcgraths Hill are fleas found?
In Mcgraths Hill, the most common places fleas are found is on the back, neck, and underside of cats and dogs. Fleas live both internally and externally, favouring subfloor or decking areas.
Fleas live and breed around western Sydney in warm moist places, so infestations are usually worse in the summer. The closer to the Blue mountains area the warmer and moister the air can tend to be, so expect to find more common household pests in these areas.
Rural suburbs like Richmond, Windsor, Pitt Town, Annangrove, Berkshire Park, Bligh Park, Cattai, Freemans Reach, Kurrajong, Maraylya, and Penrith tend to hold a slightly higher rate of this pest infestation because of their set location and temperate climates. They are an unwanted pest in most cases.

How did I get fleas?
Stray cats in Mcgraths Hill are a large source of spreading Fleas as they have no boundaries.
Wondering in and out of many Mcgraths Hill properties and homes without being kept in specific areas. Many commercial properties have stray animals that can be a common cause of flea transfer.
Fleas may hop onto your pets’ fur from another infected pet or from infested dirt or grass outside.

Getting the best result from a our Mcgraths Hill flea treatment
Vendors, tenants and homeowners preparation work required prior to chemical application.
Prior to having professional pest treatment for fleas, it is essential that the Mcgraths Hill householder does a thorough vacuum to all areas infected areas internally. Particular attention of vacuuming carpets, floorboards, including moving the furniture, skirting boards and any areas your pet may frequent.
The strong vibration of the vacuum moving over these surface areas helps flea eggs and pupae to hatch and allows us the best possible chance of having the fleas pick up the insecticide.
We require the hatched eggs to come into direct contact with the insecticide in order for the treatment to be effective and your home to become pest-free. Once our pest control experts finish the flea treatment you will notice huge improvements.
Lawns need to be freshly mowed or at low grass height. The vibration of the mower helps the eggs and pupae to hatch so the fleas can come into contact with the insecticide. If the soil is very dry, we encourage you to water the lawn prior to our arrival as this helps float any eggs to the surface so hatched eggs come into direct contact with the pest insecticide.
Washing all pet bedding is essential. Your pet should also undergo the proper veterinary product/s for flea treatment (Frontline, Bayer Advantus Soft Chews, and Nexgard are a few products that can be used) but your local Mcgraths Hill veterinarian would be able to provide you with what options best suit your circumstances. Obviously, long-haired pets may hold a greater challenge when it comes to the reduction in animal pests.
Chemical Application: A blanket spray using Bifenthrin chemical insect treatment is applied to the interior, exterior and subfloor. Pest reduction results are instantaneous. This Mcgraths Hill pest treatment is non-fuming and environmentally friendly. Where large flea infestation is present, secondary treatment may need to be carried out 1-2 weeks after the initial pest spray.
Note: Pets should not walk on areas treated until the chemical application has dried.

BEE & WASP CONTROL MCGRATHS HILL
Bee Pest Control Mcgraths Hill
Wasp Pest Control Mcgraths Hill
Bee Hive Removal Mcgraths Hill
Wasp Nest Removal Mcgraths Hill
Wasps and bees are useful insects, but because of their capacity to sting, they are commonly regarded as pests. Wasps, in particular, can be a nuisance in autumn, when they can disturb a variety of outdoor activities.
Many people wrongly refer to all stinging insects as "bees." Despite the fact that both social wasps and bees live in colonies ruled by queens and maintained by workers, they have distinct appearances and behaviours. It's critical to distinguish between these insects because, if they become a problem, different control strategies may be required.
When bees and wasps have nests in difficult-to-reach places, such as inside a home, inside insulation, high in trees, or in hard-to-reach places, professional services are required. The cost of these services varies depending on the exterminator service required, so contact All Guard to learn more.
Wasps have a slim body with a small waist and slender, cylindrical legs, and their skin is smooth and lustrous.
The most common varieties of wasps encountered by people are European wasps, Yellow-jackets, hornets, and paper wasps.
In comparison to wasps, bees have a larger body and are more hairy. For collecting and conveying pollen, their hind legs are flattened. Bees play a crucial role in pollination. Most fruits, legumes, and vegetable seed plants, as well as many ornamentals produced in our landscapes, rely on honey bee pollination for more than 80% of their pollination.
Wasp nest removal Mcgraths Hill
The first stage in wasp and bee management is identifying the bug and locating its nesting place. Wasp and bee control can be provided by a professional pest control company and one that is quite dangerous if self attempted. Mcgraths Hill bee and wasp removal are a speciality of All Guard Pest Control.
In September/October, after the queen has formed her colony and while the colony is still tiny, is the greatest time of year to control wasps. However, because nests are small, they are also more difficult to locate. Controlling wasp nests during the night, when they are less active, is the optimum time of day. Wasps have a hard time flying at temperatures below 5° C. Never seal a wasp nest unless you're positive no wasps are still alive within. If a nest is not discovered until autumn, control may not be essential because the colony will perish due to the impending temperatures.
Pest inspections are necessary by an experienced exterminator. At All Guard, we will educate you on all aspects of pest control for your specific bug problem.
We eliminate the top 10 pests and many more that can invade your home and create problems for your quality of living. Professional pest control services that really do deliver.
