Tips for keeping your home pest free

Tips for Keeping Your Home Pest Free

If you’re screaming in terror at the sight of a spider, cockroach or something even bigger, All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control is here to help with some tips for keeping your home pest free. 

In this blog we’re going to give you a few tips on keeping the pests away and also some signs to look out for if you think they’re residing in and around your home. 

To find out more please see our blog below. If you have any further questions or would like to organise a booking, please get in touch with All Corners by calling us on 0439 722 914 or send us an online message here

Signs of Pests in Your Home 

While some pests can be obvious to see, here are some less obvious yet important signs to look out for when cleaning your home: 

  • Little droppings in the back of cupboards 
  • Chewed cardboard boxes and packaging 
  • Sightings of silverfish in wardrobes 

If you’re unsure if what you have found is related to a pest, please contact us on 0439 722 914 and we will do our best to help. 

Tips for Keeping Pests Away From Your Home 

People are spending more time at home and may be noticing pests more than they usually would. It’s also highly likely there may be more dishes being used and garbage building up as well.  

It is an important practice to help minimise bug issues by limiting food sources and harbourage points by regularly doing the dishes, taking out the rubbish and general cleaning practices. Cockroaches thrive in these sorts of conditions and a more regular pest treatment may be required to keep them to a minimum. 

We have also noticed recently, an increase of stored plastic bags shoved under the sink or in the food cupboard. This offers a perfect breeding ground for cockies, so we suggest keeping the bags folded neatly and only storing what you need.  

How We Can Help With Pest Problems 

If you’re experiencing any pest issues, contact us online, through our Facebook page, or by phoning 0439 722 914 with any concerns you have and we can provide specific advice for your situation.  

What to Expect During A Pest Inspection 

Before we come out to your home, we will have a chat with you about the bugs and insects that you have noticed so we know what to specifically target. 

We carry out a standard pest inspection of your home internally and externally to cover the most general nuisance bugs including cockroaches, spiders and ants. Find out more about what is done during a pest inspection here.

We also offer tailor-made packages and prices to suit individual needs. Please contact us to find out more.

How to Tell if You Have Termites

How to Tell if You Have Termites

While you don’t want to have these little guys burrowing in your home, here is how to tell if you have termites. 

The team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control can help out with regular inspections but you can also be on the lookout for any suspicious activity including damage in and around timber areas of your home. 

Prevention really is the best way to protect your home. If you need some advice or you want to make a booking, please get in contact with All Corners by calling us on 0439 722 914 or send an online message here

Termite Activity  

Termite activity can be hard to detect for an untrained eye. We recommend regular termite inspections at least every 12 months by a professional termite manager.  

But there are some things people can look out for in between regular inspections including: 

  • Termite mud leads on timber. 
  • Termites foraging through mulch in garden beds. 
  • Damage to timber fences, retaining walls or timber inside the home.  

If suspected termite activity is found, the biggest thing to remember is not to disturb them. We need them to be working and foraging in the area for an effective treatment to take place.  

Termite Treatment 

Termite treatments vary depending on the species of termites, where the activity is located and the building design of the home. Please, never try to deal with termites by yourself, always call in a professional. If not dealt with correctly, they can cause more damage and make repairs even more expensive down the track.  

Thankfully Zac didn’t have termites in or around his home, but we carried out a termite inspection as he wanted to make sure his home and investment were free of any issues. Here is what he said about working with All Corners;  

Client Testimonial: 

“All Corners are outstanding! We have used them while renting and now for our own home for carpet cleaning, pest sprays and termite checks! They are well priced and extremely accommodating! Ashley and Jason’s work is always top shelf, timely and informative, so we’ll be going back time and time again! Keep up the great work guys.” 

Zac R.

Termite Inspections  

We highly recommend that homeowners undertake regular termite inspections of their homes and maintain their termite management plans including physical or chemical barriers or baiting systems. You can keep an eye out for any suspect activity and notify us so we can check it out. Call us on 0439 722 914 for further advice.

Pest Inspection Coverage  

We like to find out what pest issues our clients are having before we start the job. This is so we can target really specific areas and pests that are being a nuisance.  

Kay came to us because her family was having issues with ants and spiders, mainly externally, which we treated. We also covered extra areas like the kids fort, as spiders were harbouring there too.  

Finding out what issues our clients are experiencing can help us with our pest management plan and treatments, providing a better outcome for the client.  

Here is what Kay had to say about her experience with All Corners; 

Client Testimonial: 

“Ashley has done a fantastic job with great service from the first phone call to completing our pest control. He was polite, thorough and efficient. He asked questions and found out exactly what we were needing to have done and also providing great value. We would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for pest control. We had our house and shed done, but he also took care of the kids cubby house which was really nice of him to do, Thank you Ash.”

Kay W.

The Best Time of Year for a Pest Treatment

The Best Time of Year for a Pest Treatment

Have you kept up with your regular pest control? The best time of year for a pest treatment is quite often when the weather warms up but that may not stop other issues from arising. 

All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control can help with keeping on top of regular pest treatments, ensuring that the critters are kept away from you and your family as much as possible. 

For any big questions or concerns, please get in touch with us here at All Corners. You can also make a booking for an inspection or treatment by calling us on 0439 722 914 or sending an online message here

When to Get a Pest Treatment 

Pest activity increases around the home as the weather starts to warm up in Spring, although they can be an issue throughout the year depending on weather conditions and patterns, breeding cycles and local environmental factors.  

As people start to notice an increase in activity regardless of season, it’s definitely the right time to look at getting professional pest treatment done.  

What is Involved in a Pest Treatment? 

Our standard pest treatment targets the main nuisance bugs, cockroaches, silverfish, spiders and ants.  

It is an internal and external treatment of the home including roof voids and wall voids, where possible.  

We can also tailor packages and prices to suit a person’s or business needs and to cover particular pests we are targeting.  

How Far Apart Should Treatments Be? 

We recommend treating a home at least every 12 months to maintain control of pest populations. This can increase to every 3 months in high risk areas such as cafes or commercial buildings.   

Pest treatments can vary on how long they last as they can be very dependent on weather and environmental conditions. Generally speaking, treating your home every 12 months helps to keep the pest populations at bay.

Where You’ll Find Spiders 

For some of us, these little (or not so little) guys with eight legs are what nightmares are made of. Living in Queensland, we have thousands of different species of spiders out there, so you will very likely see them in and around your home. 

Some of the most common species we see are the Daddy Long Legs, Huntsman, Golden Orbs, Red Backs, White Tails and the Black and Red House Spiders. You’ll find them in the garden, under furniture, in weepholes and on cornicing. They also like to frequent kids play equipment like trampolines and swings, so always check before letting the kids out and about in the yard. 

The good news is, not all spiders are dangerous, and they won’t go out of their way to hurt you if they are. Because some species look similar, it’s best to treat all spiders as venomous and just leave them alone. 

Treating Spiders Client Testimonial  

For Michaela at Kippa Ring, spiders were a bit of a concern around her home. We conducted a full pest treatment as well as treating the roof void, as this area is where a lot of insects like to breed. We also sprayed the cornices of her home where there were a lot of common house spiders webbing.  

“I am extremely happy with service. Ashley was great to communicate with and arrived onsite 20 minutes earlier than expected. He got in and got the job done. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for pest control services!”

Michaela I. 

All Corners also treat wall voids and carry out an internal and external spray as part of our standard pest control package targeting the four main nuisance bugs: 

  • Cockroaches 
  • Silverfish 
  • Spiders 
  • Ants

“We would definitely recommend All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control. The communication with Ashley to get a quote and book a time was easy and super quick to reply.

Looking Out for Termites 

The entire region of South East Queensland is a high-risk area for termite infestation. This is due to the hotter, humid weather we have which creates the perfect conditions for termites to leave the nest and forage for food.  

Termites are more active during the warmer months of the year and people will commonly see the Winged Alate Termites flying around between November and February. These termites are released from large colonies to try and establish further nests.  

Termite Inspections  

Home owners should undertake regular termite inspections of their homes and maintain their termite management plans – physical or chemical barriers or baiting systems.  

When dealing with termite infestations, each situation and treatment can be different. An experienced technician should be able to identify the species of termites they are dealing with and come up with a treatment plan to put in place for that situation.  

Prevention is the best way to protect your home. Call us on 0439 722 914 for further advice.

Client Testimonial Termite Treatment

We found a nest in a wall during a termite inspection at Christine’s Deception Bay home. She hadn’t had an inspection for a few years, so they had caused significant damage to her wall studding.

We treated the termite nest with Termidor foam, which we then allowed 21 days to work. When we returned to check the results, the termites were all dead. Treatment times can vary between homes, depending on the situation. We then put a termite chemical barrier in place.

Christine maintains her yearly termite inspections now instead of letting them lapse. This is important so we can make sure the house is still termite free and check for and locate any current termite activity on the property which we can treat and eliminate before it becomes an issue in the home. We send out reminders to our customers the month their termite inspections are due. 

“I have been using Ashley (All Corners Termite & Pest Control) for years now. He is so professional and punctual. I missed getting him for a couple of years and my house got infested with termites. Ashley exterminated them and did the house barrier for me. I’m not going to miss my yearly pest control again. He also sends a detailed invoice which is good to keep for when I sell my house.”

Christine M.

Regular Termite Inspections

Subterranean Termites, which you may also know as “White Ants”, are a destructive timber pest which often cause damage to homes and other buildings. 

They are quite common in the South East Queensland corner and are not easily seen by the untrained eye. A regular inspection of your property is the best protection for your home as it will help pick up termite activity at an early stage, potentially limiting the amount of damage they could cause.

An inspection will highlight risk factors around the home such as moisture build-up in timber, untreated or decaying timber sitting in your yard, termite barrier breaches and so on.

If you suspect any termite activity in or around your home, it is important that you do not touch or disturb the area until it has been seen by a pest management technician.

There are many ways to treat termites and every property and suburb is different. Things such as construction of a house or building can even determine how a treatment plan is designed.

We are familiar with all suburbs on the northside of Brisbane and can advise you on treatment options and plans for your home, just like we did with Kristina in Burpengary.

We offer combined job discounts on termite inspections and pest treatments saving our customers $88.

Termites are more active in the hotter and humid months of the year but are found foraging all year round in South East Queensland.

Having a termite management plan in place can reduce the risk of termite infestation, as well as reducing conditions conducive to termite attack around your home, such as removing tree stumps, limiting gardens against your home, fixing water leaks etc.
