Keep your loved ones safe from pest borne diseases

Are cockroaches dirty?

 

Do cockroaches carry diseases?

 

Are rats & mice dirty?

 

Do rats & mice carry diseases?

 

Can I get sick from rat & mice droppings?

 

No one likes the sight or the knowledge that there home has been invaded by pests, however it is not just their appearance that causes alarm to many home owners. Protecting your home from pests & pest borne diseases is a major part of keeping your loved ones safe, which is why it is essential that when you do have a pest issue you call in the experts rather than trying any DIY pest control. Pest Control technicians are trained to look for active and potential pest issues that could arise in your home.

Pests live in conditions that we would consider unhygienic like sewers & garbage areas… No one would not allow our children to play in these places!

With this in mind no one would want pests living in our homes spreading diseases they may be pick up from their environments

With our busy lives we can sometimes we forget just how unhealthy it is to have these pests sharing our homes.

It is for this reason we are going to mention a few pests and the impacts they can have on our loved ones, to ensure you are keeping a healthy living environment.

Cockroaches

Many people consider cockroaches to be one of the ugliest pests around, however their appearance

Cockroaches are probably one of the worst offenders when it comes to causing illness and diseases. Cockroaches live and travel through sewers in their journey to your home. They enter the house via drains looking for food and a more comfortable living environment.

Cockroaches leave bacteria, pathogens and parasites as they scuttle across your floors, benches, inside your cupboards & near or on your food!

Cockroaches also leave droppings, urine and decaying bodies which break down and become particles of dust that we breathe which affects our lungs and causes allergies.

It has been proven that cockroach ‘dust’ is worse for asthma sufferers than normal dust, cat or dog hair.

Mice

Their appearance maybe less offensive in some people’s eyes but they are next in line when it comes to potential health risks.

Mice basically set up home inside your home and will constantly look around your home looking for food. Even if food is not readily available and sealed up tight they will still contaminate your home.

Mice dribble urine continuously, as they move around your home they are leaving drips of urine on all surfaces they cross.  This steady stream of urine means diseases they carry such as meningitis or salmonella are being left behind on your countertops, floors and inside the cupboards near or on containers, cans, shelves.

The scariest part of this is that as the urine dries almost immediate it is invisible to the naked eye, which means you could be cutting meat, vegetables, preparing baby bottles on urine stained surfaces.

Rats

The Bubonic Plague which killed over 50 million people in the 14th century was a disease that was spread by rats. Rats have strong and powerful teeth and will gnaw on pretty much anything to gain access to food and water.

There are several diseases which can be transmitted via rats

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Plague
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Salmonellosis
  • South American Arenaviruses
  • Tularemia

Many of the these do not occur here in Australia however as overseas travel is common where these diseases can be a problem, it is essential that you are aware of the risks and take precautions to prevent contracting any of these illnesses. Knowledge is your best weapon, be aware, it just may save your life or that of your loved ones!

Diseases by rats can also be spread by inhaling evaporating rat waste. Be wary of droppings that are on dusty surfaces. There is a risk that illnesses can be spread through dust particles that become air borne during the cleaning phase.

What is the best way to clean up rat droppings?

Ensure you remove any rodent droppings as soon as possible using gloves and throw away all materials used to collect the droppings.

Place the droppings in a zip lock bag and dispose of immediately as there is a risk that diseases can be spread when dust in your home is contaminated by a rodent’s urine or droppings.

When it comes to rodents and the problems they cause, disease is one you really do not want to ignore. The tool to any rodent infestation is to be safe and responsible.

If you have a rodent infestation and need to clean up their droppings, air out the room and use a face mask. This will prevent you from breathing in any air borne illnesses associated with rodent droppings.

If you have a current rodent infestation, have it treated by a professional pest control. Pest Busters Sydney recommends waiting until you stop seeing activity or hearing noises then begin the cleaning process and seal up any entrance points.

Protect your loved ones with Pest Busters Sydney.

BEDBUG PEST CONTROL 

Vampires of the insect world

Need Help with Bed Bugs?

 

Bedbug pest control Sydney – Bed bugs are mostly associated with human beds where they are often found hiding during the daylight hours. Bed bugs come out to feed at night and are attracted to body heat. The bite of a bed bug itself is normally painless; however, about 80% of the population will develop an allergic reaction to the bite. The bite can cause general swelling that extends beyond the area of the bite leaving no red spot at the bite point.

 

What do bedbugs look like?

 

Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown, oval and flat. They are about 5-6 mm long or about the size of an apple seed.  In the early stages of their life cycle, bedbugs are almost transparent until they start to feed. As they feed their bodies swell and appear to be red in colour due to the blood they have ingested. An unfed bedbug would usually be a cream colour.

The Young:

 

  • Small and colour-less.
  • General body appearance of adults.
  • Turn red or purple when engorged with blood.

Adult:

 

  • 4-5 mm long.
  • Reddish-brown in colour.
  • Wingless (oval structure in their place)
  • Flat, oval shaped body.
  • Body appears to be shiny.
  • Piercing/Sucking mouth parts.

What do bedbugs eat?

 

Bed bugs preferably feed on human blood, but they can also use bats, poultry and other birds as hosts.

How many eggs can a bedbug lay?

 

An adult Bed bug under good conditions, can live over 300 days. Female bed bugs lay their eggs in cracks and crevices or on any rough surface. The female bed bug lays one to five eggs a day and may lay 200 to 500 eggs in her lifetime.

What is the life cycle of a bedbug?

How are ants treated?

 

Pest Busters Sydney uses a product that is specifically designed to eradicate not just the surface ants but the entire nest of ants.

Internally

A low toxic bait is placed in areas where ant trails have been seen. The ants feed from the bait and carry it back with them to the nest which is designed to kill the colony and Queen.

Externally

External ant treatments are conducted with a product called Termidor. The benefit of this product is that as ants cannot detect that the spray is an insecticide they carry it back to the nest where the chemical is transferred among the other ants in the colony which in turn eradicates the entire nest of ants.

How can ants be prevented?

 

Ants usually come inside your home or business looking for food. They are attracted to sweet and sticky substances.

Internally

  • Clean up spills and food crumbs
  • Empty rubbish bins
  • Feed pets outside and wash their feed dishes daily
  • Store food in pest-proof containers
  • Rinse out jars and containers before placing them in rubbish/recycling bins

Externally

  • Keep trees and shrubs near your house trimmed
  • clear gutters and storm drains
  • Look out for new ant mounds or nests around your home
  • Keep garbage bags sealed
  • Keep the lid of the garbage bin closed
  • Seal around doors and windows where ants could enter
