    How to Deal with Common Summer Pests in Australia

    As the Australian summer begins, it's not just about enjoying the beautiful weather and sunny beach days. Unfortunately, summer also signals a significant increase in pest activity. In Australia, the warmer months are the most active period for pests, as the heat creates ideal conditions for them to find food and reproduce. This means you're likely to encounter them more frequently than in winter.

    In this article, the team at Coastwide Pest Control is highlighting the summer pests you need to be aware of and offering tips on how to prevent and deal with them. Let's get started!

    General Pests

    Summer, with its warm weather, acts as a catalyst for the activity of various general pests. This season witnesses a significant increase in the presence of creatures such as cockroaches, fleas, ants, spiders, termites, and more, making vigilant pest control more important than ever. At Coastwide Pest Control, our experienced team is well-prepared to handle a wide range of common pests, ensuring your summer days are comfortable and pest-free.

    • Cockroaches are known for their resilience and can pose a significant health risk by spreading bacteria. Our team uses targeted treatments to effectively manage these pests, even in the hardest-to-reach places.
    • Silverfish, while harmless, can be a nuisance, especially in damp and dark areas of your home. We offer solutions to keep these pests at bay.
    • Spiders can range from harmless to potentially dangerous. Our team can help identify and control spider populations around your home, ensuring safety and peace of mind.
    • Termite Inspections, Reports, and Treatments are crucial, especially in summer when termites are most active. We provide comprehensive services to protect your home from these silent destroyers.

    The Importance of Regular Pest Inspections


    During summer, possums actively search for better shelters and food sources, often invading homes in the Central Coast, Lake Macquarie, and Newcastle. The presence of possums in residences can be troublesome, causing damage to electrical wiring and timber and posing health risks with their droppings and urine. Coastwide Pest Control specialises in managing possum problems. Our services include:

    • Possum Capture and Release (within 25 metres of capture point)
    • Identifying all entry and exit points
    • Implementing proofing to prevent future possum entry

    Steps to Decrease your Chance of a Summer Pest Infestation

    Summer brings with it an increased likelihood of pest infestations, but there are proactive steps you can take to minimise this risk.
    Here are some effective measures:

    • Seal Your Home: Check for cracks or holes in exterior walls, particularly around doors and windows, and repair them to prevent pests from entering.
    • Maintain Kitchen Hygiene: Keep your kitchen clean by promptly clearing crumbs and spills, as these can attract pests. Regular garbage disposal and sealed bins are also crucial.
    • Manage Moisture: Fix any leaky faucets and ensure proper drainage around your home to reduce excess moisture, which can attract pests.
    • Yard Maintenance: Regularly trim vegetation and clear debris from your yard. Overgrown plants and accumulated debris can be ideal breeding grounds for pests.
    • Professional Pest Inspection:** Consider scheduling a professional inspection, particularly if you live in an area prone to specific types of pests.

    By implementing these measures, you can enjoy a more pest-free summer in your home.
