Growing up in the 80s and 90s there was an abundance of Christmas Beetles each year.
I remember on many occasions my brother and myself having competitions on who could catch the most Christmas beetles, needless to say my little brother would always win as he would forage for hours looking for the christmas beetles.
So why don’t we see Christmas Beetles like we use to when we were younger.
According to the daily telegraph Christmas Beetles are declining because of climate change.
Over the last four springs the climate has been somewhat dry and warm which means that with the ground being so hard the Christmas Beetle larvae is unable to crawl its way out from underneath the soil and therefore resulting in them being defenceless underneath the soil and dying.
Another major factor of the Christmas Beetle being on the decline is the removal of the eucalyptus trees as this is their main source of their food diet.
The larvae needs to be able to come up through the soil so they can reproduce and carry on their legacy.
Something I didn’t know was that according to records that about a century ago the Christmas Beetle was evident in Darling Harbour that they were actually called the Darling Harbour Beetle and that there was such an abundance of them that the tree branches use to hang in the water due to the branches being so heavy with Christmas Beetles.
So if you happen to see these little beauties please don’t step on them or kill them rather pick one up and inspect them, see what they look like, see their tiny robust bodies, let your kids pick them up and investigate.
Unfortunately here at Redline Pest Control we don’t spray in wet weather or break treatments up in wet weather as we don’t want your treatment to be washed away with the rain.
Whether it is light rain or heavy rain your appointment will be rescheduled if you have external areas included in your package.
Why do we reschedule the whole appointment when it rains?
We have proven methods that work and by splitting up a treatment you are not getting a full barrier against pests from entering your home.
We have tested and tried splitting treatments up when it rains and we simply don’t find that we get the best results for any treatment that has been split up.
Will you reschedule if it looks like it is going to rain?
At the end of each day and beginning of each day we check and monitor the weather in your local area and will determine if a treatment needs to be reschedule, if it is only cloudy we will still come out and perform the treatment.
What if it rains after my appointment?
If it rains within 4 hours after your appointment we will come back out to your premises and respray at no charge to you as we can’t help how the weather pans out. A note will be put in your client file that it had rained that day and that if any issues arises with pests that we will also come back out at no charge to you.
If it rains the night prior to your booking your service may be rescheduled as the ground may still be wet at the time of your booking. If the ground is wet the chemical will not bind and therefore will be ineffective and a waste of your precious hard earned money.
So can any treatments get done if it rains?
The following premises can be sprayed for pest control:
Commercial premises – as long as there are no external areas.
Units – as long as there are no external areas.
Houses – as long as there are no external areas.
German cockroaches, internal fleas, rodents, bedbugs, lice/mites.
As a business owner we all know the stress that comes with owning a business.
The last thing that is on our minds after a 15 hour day is pests and the havoc that they can cause.
In an ideal world we would love for pests to disappear rather than multiply.
What is your responsibility when it comes to pest control in a food premises?
As soon as you see any pest in your food business you must always contact a trusted pest controller who will provide you with not only a pest service which eliminates pest but also provides an appropriate pest management program.
It is by Australian standards that anyone in the food sector is to not only be trained in safe food handling but also must be on a pest management program which controls the threshold level of pests that enter your premises.
So you have this beautiful restaurant with beautiful food in a great part of Sydney don’t ruin it by letting pests take over and scare your customers away.
We often get calls from commercial clients who have tried doing pest control on their own or with someone who was cheap but didn’t know what they were doing and they were still experiencing pests.

In the dead of night cockroaches will come out of their hidey-holes and will gobble up anything in their sights.
Not many people know that cockroaches will not only eat the crumbs that they find but they will also munch on electrical cables, papers, hair, decaying matters and other organisms.
It is true that cockroaches can go around a month without food but cannot survive without water for about a week.
So what can our clients expect from cockroach control from Redline Pest Control?
Redline Pest Control will firstly inspect your premises to find out what species of cockroaches you have.
Once identified Redline Pest Control will treat those affected areas.
German cockroaches are the little goldy brown cockroaches. They will usually start off in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry areas as these areas are dark and moist. Once an infestation starts growing and harbourage places become over crowded the German cockroaches will spread to other areas of your home.
So what do we do to get rid of those dirty little cockroaches?
First and foremost the technician will access the level of infestation. The technician will spray the skirting boards and place a gel in the hinges of cabinets in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, any electrical appliances and high risk areas.
Unlike German cockroaches large cockroaches will usually live in roof voids and subfloors and will come inside to get there source of food.
What does Redline Pest Control do when getting rid of large cockroaches?
We will dust your roof void and if you have a subfloor, spray along the skirting boards of your home and along your fence lines, window frames, door frames, eaves and other high risk areas.
