Why do I have cockroaches in my clean house?

Cockroaches have established a cohabitation with people and are highly regarded as pests. Their role in transmitting diseases to people is a serious concern and the main reason for their pest status. Cockroaches contaminate food products, utensils, and preparation areas with droppings, cast skins, empty egg cases, dead bodies and vomit on surfaces. Many people are annoyed or scared by the sight of cockroaches; some find their presence abhorrent. When a large cockroach infestation occurs, an unpleasant odour develops due to the secretions from the mouth and cuticle.

Some people are allergic to cockroaches, which can bring positive skin reactions in sensitive people and cause asthma attacks in asthmatics. The allergen can be ingested with contaminated food or inhaled when dry faeces become part of the dust. Did you know that cockroaches have been known to bite? It is rare, but incidences have been recorded. The health threat posed by cockroaches that close cohabit with people is considered by moist to be extremely serious. Cockroaches are likely responsible for many transmissions of human diseases like Salmonella food poisoning.

Important pest species:

  • German Cockroach
  • American Cockroach
  • Australian Cockroach
  • Smoky Brown Cockroach
  • Brown-banded Cockroach
  • Oriental Cockroach
Why are ants invading my home?

Ants are social insects that live in more or less permanent nests. Their colony sizes can carry enormously but are primarily located in soil, wood or among rocks. Being common intruders in and around homes, ants are familiar insects to people. You will often see ants around foundations, walls, roof voids, kitchens, lawns and gardens, and decaying timbers and rockeries. Typically, you will see worker ants foraging from the nest for food and water, travelling on well-defined scent trails with pheromone secretions. More generally, ants rely on smell, taste, hearing, touch or sight for communication and direction.

Ants are highly regarded as nuisance pests in and around homes. Small mounds from their excavations can quickly become unsightly on garden paths, balconies, and around skirting boards and architrave bases. Occasionally, the excavations under paths can be sufficient to crack the concrete. Trailing ants in and around homes are considered unsightly by many. As well as a general nuisance pest, ants can present a health risk. They are known in some instances to carry on their bodies or in their digestive tract, disease organisms causing dysentery and pathogenic bacteria like Salmonella.

Ants are known to scavenge in kitchens and other food-handling areas, garbage bins, dog faeces, and other possible sources of disease organisms. Some ants can also bite and sting people. It would be best if you noticed their potential for transmitting diseases to people. 

Small Brown Ants:

  • Argentine Ant
  • Coastal Brown Ant
  • Pharaoh’s Ant
  • Odorous Ant
  • Singapore Ant

Small Black Ants:

  • White-footed House Ant
  • Black House Ant

Larger and Other Ants:

  • Carpenter Ants

Why are people scared of spiders?

Spiders are not insects but can be a pest to many people causing considerable discomfort. Just the thought of them can send shivers down the spine of some people. Some people struggle with sharing their environment with them, which can be a constant source of fear and irritation in the home. Few people can comfortably endure their presence in and around their homes. Most spiders aren’t dangerous but are considered a severe nuisance primarily because of their webbing. They are drawn to warm areas with low disturbance, like in and around air conditioning units and high up on cornices and eaves of your home. We can check for early signs of an infestation and act quickly with a highly effective and targeted treatment for your home. Please note that control of ground-dwelling and hunting spiders relies on the direct contact of the spider with the insecticide.

Common House Spiders:

  • Redback Spider
  • Black House Spider
  • Red House Spider
  • Cellar Spiders (Daddy-long-legs)

Hunting Spiders:

  • White-tailed Spider
  • Huntsman Spider

Ground-dwelling Spiders:

  • Funnel Web Spiders
  • Trapdoor Spiders
  • Mouse Spiders
  • Wolf Spiders

Garden Spiders:

Should I be worried if I have silverfish?

Silverfish are primitive, agile, fast-running, scaled-covered wingless insects. They enjoy the undisturbed areas of your home, like bookcases, storage rooms and roof voids. Silvery in appearance, their bodies taper at the rear to have a fish-like appearance. They have long and slender antennae with three long appendages conspicuous from the rear. Silverfish are not a problem in small numbers, but a large infestation can severely damage property. Moist environments provide excellent breeding grounds for silverfish, so fix leaking pipes and taps. They are destructive feeders and a severe problem in large numbers by damaging books, photos, paintings and more. They love to eat any household items containing starch or cellulose.

Do fleas live on humans?

Fleas are small, terrible, bloodsucking parasitic insects that love to feed on pets, livestock, birds, and people. They can be a real problem in homes, especially with pets, and may cause severe irritation. Their role in disease transmission is well documented and justly earned them a reputation as a public health risk. When conditions are favourable, fleas can reach plague proportion and are difficult to control without the help of a professional. Regular flea treatments for pets are your front line of defence, so speak to your Vet. Fleas thrive in moist, humid and shady areas like wood piles and tall grass. You will find them in and around pets’ bedding and carpet in your home, and your pet may pick them up in the yard, dog parks or a walk around the neighbourhood.

Important pest species:

  • Cat Flea
  • Dog Flea
  • Human Flea
  • Oriental Rat Flea

What are the three common rodents?

Rats and mice are severe pests for people because they eat what we store and diseases they can bring into our homes. These well-adapted rodents live close to us sharing our food and shelter. Throughout history, rodents have been responsible for enormous losses of food and human life owing to their ability to transmit diseases to people. These cunning but cautious pests have successfully exploited our urban environments for years. Rats and mice are adaptable, omnivorous scavengers. They are agile and primarily nocturnal but may range during the day if the population is large or there is little danger. Rats and mice are competent climbers who can scale rough walls, pipework, and trees to access your home. Are you worried about rats and mice in your home? Rodents can wreak serious havoc. Rats and mice can damage your health and property, resulting in a loss of income and severe repair bills. Rodent control is essential to avoid many serious diseases or illnesses that they are known to transmit.

Important pest species:

  • Brown Rat (aka Norway Rat)
  • Black Rat (aka Roof Rat or Ship Rat)
  • House Mouse

Why are mosquitoes a health hazard?

Mosquitoes pose a significant threat to the health and comfort of people and animals. They are a scourge worldwide, causing millions of deaths every year. Within Australia, mosquitoes transmit diseases lethal to humans, like Dengue fever, Australian encephalitis and Ross River fever. The term biting is widely applied to adult female mosquitoes’ piercing and sucking feeding actions. Mosquito larvae can develop in any water found in and around the home, including garden ponds, pot plants, drains and gutters that hold water. Effective mosquito control starts with preventing breeding grounds, so remove any stagnant bodies of water you can. They can disrupt your life and social events with persistent buzzing and bites that cause allergic reactions. Mosquitoes are active during our hot and wet summer months and are incredibly irritating.

Important pest species:

  • Common Australian Mosquito
  • Dengue Mosquito
  • Domestic Container Mosquito
  • Saltmarsh Mosquito
  • Grey-striped Mosquito
  • Common Banded Mosquito
  • Brown House Mosquito

How do I stop flies in my house?

Flies are a pest in every sense of the word and pose real health risks in your home. The number of disease-causing organisms flies can harbour on or in their bodies is enormous. They can infest your home and spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli, with a few species known to bite humans and animals. Flies are very mobile and can freely move between decaying excrement or wastes to the food we eat and the surfaces we prepare it on. They spoil food, spread diseases, cause allergic reactions and irritate pests. Flies are a considerable nuisance to people and pets, especially during warmer months. A small fly problem, if left uncontrolled, can turn into a severe infestation in just seven days. Proper fly control is complex, and we follow several steps to identify and control breeding sites. Hiring a professional is the most effective way to prevent flies from your property.

Important pest species:

  • Housefly
  • Bush Fly
  • Lesser Housefly
  • Stable Fly
  • Blowflies
  • Flesh Flies
  • Vinegar Flies
  • Cheese Skipper Fly
  • Moth Flies
  • Biting Midges (aka Sandfly)

Do I have clothes moths flying in my house?

Webbing clothes moths will destroy wool and consume natural materials. The moth larvae eat the fabric, not the adult moths. They love to devour the keratin in natural fibres found in furs, silk, felt, feathers and hair. You will find clothes moths living in dark places, like inside wardrobes and fabrics to avoid the light. By the time you become aware of them, it is too late. They will eat your coats, sweaters, blankets, carpets, pillows and more. The infamous webbing clothes moth and its cousin, the casemaking clothes moth, are awful household pests. They can cause severe damage and can require the attention of a highly trained pest management technician.

Important pest species:

  • Casemaking Clothes Moth
  • Webbing Clothes Moth
  • Tapestry Clothes Moth

Are carpet beetles something to worry about?

Carpet beetles are widely known for the damage they cause to materials made from animals. There are several species in Australia but the most common ones encountered are the variegated carpet beetle and the black carpet beetle. Carpet beetles are more widespread than clothes moths due to their lower humidity tolerance. Only the carpet beetle larvae are destructive to natural materials. Still, they attack a broader range of materials than clothes moths. Carpet beetle larvae can feed on or in wool, fur, hair, silk, clothes, fabrics, carpets, rugs, underfelts, felts, insulating materials, dried insect specimens, animal carcasses, bee and wasp nests, and stored foods like dried meats, seeds, grains and cereals. The presence of flying or crawling adult carpet beetles strongly indicates an infestation. Sightings of damaged materials, sand-like larval droppings, bristly cast skins and even live larvae can confirm their activity. Where an infestation of carpet beetles requires treatments, it is best to engage the services of a highly qualified pest management technician.

Important pest species:

  • Variegated Carpet Beetle
  • Black Carpet Beetle
  • Australian Carpet Beetle
  • Furniture Carpet Beetle

How do I get rid of pantry moths and weevils?

We call collectively stored food pests the small weevils and moths that sometimes infest your kitchen pantry. In homes, you find infestations in food packages in the kitchen pantry or Ratsak baits in the ceiling or sub-floor areas. The accumulation of crumbs and other food materials under cupboards, white goods and furniture can sustain a substantial population of pantry moths and weevils. Breeding of these little critters occurs in the food packets used for long periods, life flour and rolled oats. These packets can be treated for a couple of minutes in the microwave, or you can throw them away into a garbage bin outside. You can treat these crawling insects yourself with an aerosol or surface spray. It is always good to keep food susceptible to pantry moths and weevils stored securely to prevent access. These insects can contaminate your stored foods with live or dead insects at all stages of their growth, cast skins and droppings. If you have an infestation of pantry moths or weevils that you can manage yourself, please do not hesitate to call us for professional help.

Stored pest species:

  • Rice Weevil
  • Granary Weevil
  • Maize Weevil
  • Common Hide Beetle

Ernest D.
Corinda QLD
Stepping on hard, prickly burrs sends a jolt through my body. Nasty Khaki weed had taken over my whole yard, and a normal bindy killer does not kill it. I have never felt safe applying chemicals. Some jobs are better left to the professionals, and this is one of them. I had to call Shaun at Jets Pest Control. He was professional and accommodating. If you ever have a similar experience, call Jets Pest Control.

“Thank you, Shaun. Every year, I find myself in despair when my lawn is attacked by the blasted lawn grubs again. I found treating and eradicating these pests very difficult. I love my lawn, and when the attack starts, I have to defend it. Jets Pest Control made a single application of Acelepryn. It protected my lawn from grubs and caterpillars all season.”
