Pest Control Mermaid Beach
Another Gold Coast summer approaches and along with subtropical heat, humidity and rainfall, a multitude of species of animals and insects become far more active.
Not all this activity is welcomed by the species known as Humans, especially when the critters we regard as pests succeed in entering our homes in search of food and shelter.
The range of pests that invade homes and buildings on the Gold Coast include:
- Bees and Wasps
Some of these pests present temporary or potentially even permanent inconveniences that require pest control solutions.
In Queensland and Northern NSW the likelihood of termites invading the structure of your building - domestic or commercial - is very high and increasing.
"The majority of mosquito problems on the Gold Coast are caused by salt-marsh mosquitoes. Further mosquito breeding occurs in freshwater after periods of high rainfall. When high tides exceed about 1.6 metres at the Gold Coast Seaway, tidal marshes are flooded, triggering mosquito breeding. This occurs almost on a monthly basis. High rainfall events can also cause flooding of salt-marshes. Mosquito control is important as some species carry debilitating diseases such as Ross River Virus."
Native birds and possums are not necessarily regarded as pests; however, they also occasionally cause havoc or disturbances in offices, shops, cafes, restaurants, tourist accommodation, and our homes.
Mermaid Beach is a relaxed stretch of Pacific Ocean coastline that is popular with swimmers and surfers. It is home to 6000 residents and provides tourist accommodation including apartments, motels and resorts.
The nearby inland suburb of Mermaid Waters has a resident population of 12,000 living in homes beside Gold Coast canals and waterways. These two locations are regarded as some of the most liveable suburbs along our coastline.
Both suburbs are susceptible to hosting black ants & bull ants, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, spiders and termites. Given the number of motels, resorts and holiday apartments in Mermaid Beach, the area is occasionally susceptible to bed bug outbreaks. Bed bugs usually travel in suitcases, bags, backpacks, and they travel well. They need to be controlled before they get out of control so there is no need to throw out bedding and linen.
