Common Australian Winter Pests
Last week, our friends at Pesky Possum Pest Control published a great article on the most common pests you will need to keep a look out for in the Australian winter. We think the article does a great job covering the most common Australian winter pests that we thought we would share a brief extract here on our site. There is a link at the bottom if you would like to check out the full article from Pesky Possum Pest Control.
Here are a few of the pests you need to be aware of in winter!
1. Mice, Rats & Rodents
Winter is peak season for mice, rats and rodents in Australia. As they are warm blooded, they spend winter looking for warm & cosy spots to stay warm. These spots are usually in your home.
When the weather starts getting colder spiders instinctively begin looking for somewhere to spend the winter. Leaves and burrows are great, but nothing compared to your warm, comfortable home. Look out for invading spiders this winter.
Cockroaches are most active in summer but that doesn’t mean a break in winter. Cockroaches are active all year round! Cockroaches carry germs all through your house and can be unhealthy.
Bedbugs live almost exclusively where it is warm, and in winter that is your home! Plus, bed bugs spread more actively during the winter months, meaning you have to be in the lookout!
