Cockroaches

The approximate number of known species in the world is 35 hundred and in Australia 400.

 Type of metamorphosis is gradual.

  Types of Cockroaches

 

 German cockroach- where are they found?

   German cockroaches live mainly indoors, near food areas and water sources they can be found in most residential properties within kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. Adults and nymphs congregate in very small spaces including cracks, small crevices, door hinges dishwashers, and even control panels. The population  typically consists of approximately 20% adults and 80% nymphs

 adult life span- 6 months

 egg to adult- 100 days

 size- 10 to 15 mm

  Similar cockroach:  Brown-banded cockroaches are a smaller size but with two light coloured bands across their wing and abdomen. These cockroaches tend to live inside in many dry areas such as bedrooms and living rooms.

 

 American cockroach - Where are they found?

American Cockroaches along with other large peridomestic Cockroaches tend to live outdoors in leaf litter and around drains and sewers. Apart from entering buildings by accident they can be found in moist areas indoors and in sub-floors. Interesting they also thrive in roof voids,  despite the heat and lack of water, hiding in the insulation

 adult life span- one year

 egg to adult-  600 days

 size- 35 to 40 mm

  Similar Cockroaches: The Australia cockroach which is very similar but has short light coloured lines on the edge of the upper four wings and the smoky Brown cockroach which is similar in size but has a uniform shiny dark brown colour without the yellow perimeter band on the pronotum.

 

 Oriental cockroach - where are they found?

 Oriental cockroaches are typically outdoor species seeking moist areas, so they will also thrive in moist sun floors. they will enter buildings in weather extremes of hot and dry to cold and damp

adult life span- 6 months

egg to adult- 350 days

size- 22 to 27 mm

 Not easily confused with other cockroaches as they are dark brown to Black. The male's wings cover only three-quarters of the body and the female has greatly reduced wings, they are often confused for a nymph.

Termites

Termite Control

3 Signs to look for:

Discarded Wings

The first sign to look for is discarded wings. You may not know it but Termites 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.

Mud Tubes.

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 damage within your Sydney home.

Wood damage,

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.

Rodents

Rodent Control

Rodents (Mice & Rats) - Where are they found?

In Sydney suburbs, Mice & Rats typically live outdoors but venture inside properties during the cooler months to seek shelter. 

 

Problems associated with Mice and Rats

Mice and Rats breed very quickly turning a small problem into a large scale infestation. One female can average between 5-10 litters per year, having on average 6-8 babies per litter. Combined with the known diseases they carry, they can also cause substantial damage by gnawing on PVC plumbing pipes,  electrical wiring, air-conditioning ducting and furniture.

Birds & Lice

There are five main pest species in Australia, all being introduced and forming less than 1% of all 450 species found in Australia. They comprise of: German, Smoky-brown, American, Australian and Brown-banded. 

Bird & Lice Control

CONTROL: Inspection is a very important part of cockroach control.  Have you noticed any particular trouble areas?  Inspect all known cockroach harbourage areas such as: 
 

  • cracks and crevices in and around kitchen, bathroom and laundry and meal preparation sites if on a commercial building

  • behind hot water services

  • electrical appliances such as ovens, refrigerator motors, microwaves, stereos etc.

  • door hinges

  • behind wallpaper or ply veneer boards

  • drains and plumbing; and

  • roof voids


All Guard will treat cracks and crevices in all of these areas and any other harbourages with insecticidal dusts to flush out the cockroaches and/or in conjunction with residual sprays such as Diazinon or Chlorpyrifos. If a non-fuming treatment is required, we will use dust only or a synthetic pyrethroid spray such as Cislin 10 or Bestox. Heavy infestations may require a misting or a gassing for a faster kill. 

IDENTIFICATION:
The adults are 10-15mm long and are tan to medium brown coloured with 2 parallel dark stripes on the head section (Pronotum). The nymphs are very small, dark and beetle-like when they first emerge from the capsule and within a few weeks grow more slender and lighter coloured. They have a light stripe down the centre at this stage of their development. Signs of infestation include cast skins, dark regurgitation and faecal droppings in corners and door hinges of cupboards. Their droppings are tiny and resemble fly-specks. They are often confused with the Brown-banded Cockroach which is lighter in colour, lives outdoors or indoors in dry environments and can fly.

What are fleas 

Fleas

Flea identification:  Fleas are a reddish/ brown, wingless blood-sucking parasite type of common household pest. Sometimes they are mistaken for bed bugs in the western Sydney area. Fleas range from 0.5 mm (from birth) to about 3mm 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 have the ability to jump many times their body height.

In western Sydney, 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, 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.

Where are fleas found?

How did I get fleas?

Stray cats are a large source of spreading Fleas as they have no boundaries. Wondering in and out of many 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.

Fleas like to stay on an animal's underbelly and thus can easily be transferred to your carpet when your pet lies down. 

   Getting the best result from a flea treatment.

Vendors, tenants and homeowners preparation work required prior to chemical application.

Interior:

Prior to having professional pest treatment for fleas, it is essential that the 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 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 (as chemical DOES NOT Penetrate flea eggs) - 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 expert finishes the flea treatment you will notice huge improvements.

 

Exterior:

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.

 

Pets:

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 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 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.
