Termite - pest control.
termite pest controlWhile termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as "white ants," they are only distantly related to the ants. Many insects are confused with termites, especially ants. Termites are sometimes referred to as ?white ants? because of their pale appearance. Regular inspections are the most important part of controlling termites before they cause any damage. Termites (Isoptera) are an ancient order of insects whose origins date back more than 100 million years to the Cretaceous period. Although they are commonly called ?white ants?, the resemblance to ants is superficial and they are more closely related to cockroaches (Blattodea). Termites are social insects, working and living together in groups (colonies). Each colony contains several types (castes) which differ in body shape and behaviour, and each caste is specialised to perform different tasks. Termites have three principal castes are recognised: workers, soldiers and reproductives (the primary king and queen and sometimes supplementary reproductives). Australia is a big and varied country, from cooler temperate climates to wet tropical ones. Such variation is important to remember when considering termite control methods. Should one particular method work well for one house, it may not prove appropriate for a second. So when considering a termite management plan make sure it is the most effective method of treatment to protect your home.

Rodents - Rats and Mice - pest control.
Mice pest controlWhere there are humans there are rats and mice. Rodents have successfully adapted to survive and thrive around our homes, our place of business and our pets. We provide food and shelter for rats and mice to breed prolifically.

There is a lot you can do to help prevent rats and mice from entering your home by physically proofing entry points to the home. Trimming back trees and shrubs to prevent easy access and do not store personal belongings around the perimeter of your home because you may just find some uninvited rodents when you move them next.

If you have a rat or mouse problem you need to consider using a baiting program. A baiting program is the most cost effective way to quickly and easily get rid of rats and mice in your home without mess or fuss as long as you use the right bait and it is strategically placed away from children and pets.

Cockroaches - pest control.
Cockroache pest controlLike the household fly, the cockroach will eat virtually anything ranging from food spills on a kitchen floor to faecal matter. Ingested bacteria can survive in the cockroaches digestive system, sometimes for months or even years, and are passed in its droppings. Cockroaches will vomit and defaecate on food and it is thought that disease may be transmitted to humans when humans eat food contaminated by cockroaches. Recent research shows that the cockroach can cause strong allergic reactions in some people. A female cockroach lays between 10 and 40 eggs at a time. On average, the female can lay around 30 batches of eggs in her lifetime. The hatched young look the same as adult cockroaches, but smaller and without wings. Depending on the conditions and type, a cockroach can live for up to 12 months. These insects are cold-blooded and thrive in warm, humid conditions. The first step to take before any pest control treatment is carried out is to thoroughly clean all areas that could be harbouring cockroaches, this will also ensure the pest control treatment carried out will be most effective and longer lasting. There are many ways to treat cockroaches which will depend on the situation and type of cockroach which makes it very important to identify the species of cockroach before the treatment is implemented.

Spiders - pest control
Spider pest controlThere are more than 2000 different spiders in Australia. Only a few of them are dangerous: these include the red-back spider, the Sydney funnel-web spider and white-tailed spiders. Other spiders such as the wolf spiders and the large bird-eating spider look fierce but are not usually a danger to people. Spiders live almost everywhere, even in the Arctic and on mountain tops. They live where they can find food. They live on plants, near swamps, underground, in caves and in deserts. One kind of spider spends most of its life under water. Some spiders live in our houses, in sheds or other buildings. Others live on the outside walls of buildings or in the corners of windows. All spiders spin silk. Some make webs with the silk to catch insects for food. Some kinds of spiders do not make webs. They catch food by jumping on it. All spiders have hollow fangs and most use them to inject poison into their prey when they capture it. Spiders eat insects but some spiders eat tadpoles, small frogs and fish, and mice. Spiders sometimes eat each other. Female redback spiders often eat the smaller, male redback spiders. This is why it is very important to treat the house and surrounding yard including outbuildings, garden areas and fence lines because you may have a variety of spiders you are trying to treat in and around your home.

Ants - pest control
Ants pest controlAnts are social insects which form small to large colonies. A typical colony contains an egg-laying queen and many adult workers together with their brood (eggs, larvae and pupae). Workers are by far the most numerous individuals in the nest. They are responsible for nest construction, maintenance, foraging, tending the brood and queen, and nest defence. The workers are the most commonly seen caste, especially as they forage on the surface of the ground or when they are disturbed under rocks or other objects. However, in most species not all workers forage outside of the nest. Ants show a strong division of labour, where different workers perform different tasks within the nest and in some cases the specific tasks undertaken will depend on the age of the ant. The majority of ants are general predators or scavengers, feeding on a wide range of prey including other arthropods and seeds. Adult ants feed exclusively on liquid foods. They collect these liquids from their prey or while tending Hemiptera and other insects. Solid prey, that which is most often seen being carried by workers, is generally intended as food for larvae. Adults which remain in the nest, including the queen, receive much or all of their food directly from returning foragers in a process called trophallaxis. During foraging, workers collect fluids which are stored in the upper part of their digestive system (the crop). Upon returning to the nest, these workers regurgitate a portion of this stored fluid and pass it on to other workers. This is why ant baits are highly effective in certain situations where the ants take the strategically placed bait and transfer the bait throughout the colony. The only drawback with baiting is it does not usually give you an instant result but it can quite possibly give you a much better long term result instead of continuous spraying of chemicals.

Silverfish - pest control
Silverfish pest controlSilverfish are small, fast, wingless insects with a steel grey colour that gives them their name, often called carpet sharks They are long and flat with bristly protrusions at their abdomen. These fast running insects have become common inhabitants of our homes and are often found in dark sheltered areas. Silverfish are usually less than 20 millimetres in length and silvery-grey in colour. They are often found in relatively undisturbed areas (eg bookcases, storage rooms), where they may damage paper, fabrics and other materials. Female silverfish lay eggs singly or in small batches, and these usually hatch in 2 - 8 weeks. The hatchlings closely resemble the adult form and undergo a number of moults. Usually, sexual maturity is attained after about 3 - 24 months. Silverfish continue to moult periodically throughout their adult life, which may be as long as four years. Silverfish are agile, fast running, nocturnal insects that generally shun light. They are usually found in dark, undisturbed places but may range fairly widely throughout a given dwelling. Their inability to climb smooth surfaces often results in their being trapped in bathtubs and basins. Silverfish usually live and develop close to their food source in damp, cool places, though they have the ability to live without food for several months. This pest is one of the most difficult to totally eliminate. The more food available, the more silverfish thrive, so professional treatment is advised with high level of house keeping.

TESTIMONIALS

X-OUT PESTS (Sean) was extremely reliable, knowledgeable and was able to provide me with an understanding / overview of total house pest management. He took the time to explain my options and was honest enough to admit that there were no active termites ( I had been told previously in a building inspection that there were ) . He was very thorough in his investigations and I would highly recommend him. Thanks Sean for a great job !"
