Urgent Termite Treatment – Pest Control Miranda
What To Do If You Find Termites At Your Home – Termite Control Miranda
If you find active termites at your home during renovations or other discovery, it is very important to apply immediate and correct treatment to the termites.
Call your local termite specialist for advice.
Do not spray the termites with an insecticide from the supermarket or hardware store. You may kill a few of the termites, but the remaining up to a million termites will still be lurking, waiting for the next opportunity to recommence feasting on your home.
The wrong treatment will cause greater difficulty to remove the termites from your home and increase the damage and cost to make your home free of termites.
A thorough termite inspection should be conducted and a suitable treatment plan devised. It could include the use of termiticide dusts, foams, baits or liquid treatments.

When removing ticks use caution. Grasp between the ticks head and hosts skin with specialist tweezers or tick remover and slowly pull away. Do not squeeze the tick. Better still is to freeze the tick with a skin freezing spray from the chemist.

Make Your Home Rodent Free
What do you call vermin, rats or mice or just rodents
Rodents (rats and mice) are vermin and carry disease and bacteria. Their droppings can cause health issues, particularly to pets and children.
As well as spreading disease, they may introduce fleas, ticks and mites into your home.
Vermin, particularly the roof rats are very good climbers. Any trees adjacent to your house will provide easy access into the roof and then fully into your home.
Rats are neo-phobic, this means that they have a fear of new objects. They are very cautious and this has to be considered when setting up traps and baits.
There are ultrasonic devices that make claims to make your Miranda home rodent free and eradicate other household pests, but there is no scientific evidence to show that they work in real world situations.
Norway Rat – (Rattus norvegicus) also called the brown rat, sewer rat, street rat or wharf rat.
House Mouse – (Mus musculus) long snout, large round ears and a long hairy tail.
Roof Rat – (Rattus rattus) also called the black rat, ship rat or house rat.
Rodents actively taking the bait
How To Get Rid Of Rodents (Rats & Mice)
Vermin are a health issue to your Miranda home
To effectively eradicate rodents from your home, a thorough inspection is required.
The droppings of rodents (rats and mice) differ in size and profile and can be used to identify the location and type of rat or mouse.
Rats and mice leave gnaw marks as they try to keep the shape and sharpness of their teeth.
Rub marks along edges can also indicate rodent activity.
Sightings of rodents during the day can indicate a large infestation.
