School Girl, The Banana & 80 Spiders.

Spiders in school girl’s banana.

 

For one girl in the United Kingdom reaching for a healthy snack like a banana could have taken a turn for the worse.

 

Hannah John took a banana to school to eat for morning tea and noticed that there was a hole in the skin of the banana, as you can imagine Hannah let out a terrifying scream once she had noticed that there were 80 tiny spiders in the banana.

 

In the United Kingdom they source there fresh fruit and vegetables from Costa Rica, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador, these countries house some of the most venomous spiders and could of potentially been a fatal experience for the young school girl who throw the banana in a bin outside of the classroom.

 

Fortunately we here in Australia we don’t source our fruit and vegetables from these countries but it doesn’t mean that spiders and other pests have not closed up shop in our fresh produce.

 

It is always vital to inspect all of our fresh fruit and vegetables for any sign of disturbance from pests and if found to throw out that produce in an outside bin to avoid any nasty mishaps or infestations occurring in your home.

ELIMINATE ENTRY POINTS We all know that pest do not come knocking on the door and waltz in, they do however creep in through broken window frames, broken tiles on your roof and cracks and crevices on the foundations of your home or business. Inspect your home or business and carry out any maintenance repairs which may be needed.ELIMINATE FOOD & WATER SOURCES Pests love a home or business which has food or water source available. Once finished in the kitchen clean all dishes and wipe down all bench tops. Avoid any water source you may have by regularly changing your pets water, or draining the water from your sink, fix any water leaks you may have in or around your home.
HOME MAINTENANCE Regular cleaning of your home goes a long way. Pests thrive on dust, food scraps and crumbs. Regular vacuuming and dusting of furniture will help control pest by eliminating their food source. Clean up clutter in your home as this is a good place for them to hide and breed.LANDSCAPING MAINTENANCE By regularly mowing your lawn, sweeping falling leaves and branches, cutting back branches which overhang your roof, pruning your bushes and over grown plants you will help eliminate pests from entering your home.

Bed Bugs and how to get rid of them!

Bed Bugs and how to get rid of them

 

Bed Bugs bites Sydney

We have all heard the term “sleep tight and don’t let those Bed Bugs bite” for some people that is exactly what happens when falling asleep.

 

So you have had a restless night tossing and turning as your flesh is been bitten. For those who have been bitten we know that those bites are painful and itch like crazy.

 

Bed Bugs feed on their host’s blood at night time while they are asleep as they are nocturnal. Fortunately for us humans Bed Bugs do not transmit any diseases. Once your room has Bed Bugs it can be tough to get rid of those pesky little buggers. Bed Bugs can live over 600 days without a blood meal and can reproduce over 10,000 offspring in their life time. Bed Bugs have an amazing sense of smell and will crawl out of their hiding spaces once they smell the presence of blood.

Bed Bugs hate the heat as it speeds up their life span causing them to die so they go in search of new hiding spaces.

 

Bed Bugs love a dusty and unkempt room and usually thrive on these conditions. We need to educate ourselves on the importance of hygiene and how we can prevent an infestation occurring.

 

Redline Pest Control uses the integrated pest management program when dealing with Bed Bugs.

 

Bed Bugs and how to get rid of them.

 

Redline Pest Control will ask that customers wash all their Fabrics, sheets and clothes in hot water than put in a tumble dryer, if you don’t have a dryer hang on clothesline before we get there, that way the room is ready for the treatment to begin.

 

What do we do when we inspect for Bed Bugs? Well we grab our UV flashlight and comb over mattresses cracks and crevices, bed frame cracks and crevices, bed skirtings, curtains, carpet, rugs, furniture, pillows, bedside tables, tall boys, dresser drawers, power points, window frames, door hinges, behind picture frames which are hung on the walls, alarm clocks and any other electrical products.

 

Redline Pest Control will spray and wipe down all surfaces, IE, tall boys, bedside tables, window frames and sills. We have a steamer and we steam every inch of the affected room/s, we add a special chemical which is designed to eliminate Bed Bugs to our steamers. We also ask the customer to vacuum once we leave and 14 days after the treatment has been carried-out.

It’s spring time and the pest have arrived!

 

Pest treatment Sydney

Spring has begun and as it is warming up so has the abundance of pest crawling in to your premises.

This is the perfect time to have a general pest treatment done on your home to avoid an infestation occurring in your home.

With Bees and Wasps swarming through your yard and your little ones out playing in the fresh air this could be a hazardous as they pack a painful sting and in some cases the sting has been known to give some people an allergic reaction causing fits, rashes, welts and in some cases even cause a person’s air way to close and stop breathing.

While cockroaches breed all year round they tend to breed at a rapid rate in the warmer months.  Cockroaches breed every 3 to 6 weeks and will usually have anywhere to 30 to 40 eggs in their capsules and if you multiply that with how many female cockroaches you already have, you could have an infestation before you know it. Cockroaches carry a bacteria that can be harmful to not only yourself but to your love ones too. Cockroach droppings contain the Staphylococcus, Salmonella and streptococcus virus.

Silverfish love warm dark damp places like your bathroom, kitchen, basements and boxes you may have stored in your premises. While Silverfish are not harmless they can cause havoc by eating through your clothes, Cellulose, carbohydrates, shampoos, books which have glue binding, sugars and starches, linen, silk, cotton and dead insects.

Let’s face it we all hate spiders and with spring here now are the time for spiders to come out and play. Whether the spiders in your home are non-poisonous or poisonous we never want to put our love ones at risk of been bitten. Being on the receiving end of a spider bite is no fun at all, while some spiders have no poison in their bites they can leave a nasty bite which can cause an infection which could lead to amputation of where the bite took place while poisonous spiders can lead to death if not treated in a swift and prompt manner.

Unfortunately no home is safe when it comes to an infestation of Rodents, Rats and Mice not only breed prolifically but they are disgusting to have around, also bring bacteria sickness and diseases which will harm your loves ones.

Rodents thrive when there are food sources, water and shelter.

What are some of the signs that will indicate that you have a rodent problem?

Scratching noises in the roof, droppings around your premises, darkish run marks on walls and plumbing pipes, damages to food packaging, skirting boards and cables been eaten through.

Why is important to have regular pest treatments on your home.

Pest Treatments Sydney

While it can be daunting to people who have never had a pest treatment done getting a pest treatment on your home is vitally important.

I came across an article of an elderly woman who lived alone in a 5 bedroom home and hardly ever went in to her spare bedrooms. Her son had come over and decided that he was going to go into that room. What he had discovered was something unimaginable, there were over 5000 wasps which were imbedded in the pillows and blankets causing a huge 3 foot high nest.

The pest controller who took on the grizzly challenge said he had never seen anything like this before and that the largest wasp’s nest he had seen was the size of a tennis ball.

At one stage during the 2 hour operation the pest controller had around 2000 wasps circulating him and was thankful he had bought his protective gear that day.

It is important for home owners to have regular inspections on their homes by walking through their premises and inspecting for any signs of pest infestations that may occur.

A lot of our customers have regular maintenance pest treatments between 6 months to 12 months. We recommend that every home should have a pest treatment every 12 months that way you are being proactive in avoiding any pest infestations.

If you are due for your maintenance pest treatment or you have started seeing pest in your home call Redline Pest Control on 02 9920 0790 or 0426 002 007 alternately you can email us on info@redlinepestcontrolsydney.com.au
