Cockroaches consume almost everything that you can imagine. It’s no wonder these pesky buggers can outlive dinosaurs and survive the ice age. Cockroaches get into premises in a number of ways. Most commonly, they are brought in via cardboard boxes while moving or when you get deliveries.
Roaches thrive in dark crevices, stacks of paper and exposed wood grains (found within cabinets). Depending on the extent of the infestation, the right treatment should be employed, to have any chance of eradicating the cockroach infestation. To get some additional information you should read this.
The first signs of a cockroach infestation usually are their droppings or frass. They also produce a sour pungent smell which you can normally associate with the damp smell emitting from under your kitchen sink cabinet. The heavier your infestation, the smell will also be more pungent.

Termites, though tiny are a huge problem. They cause trillions of dollars in damage each year. Once termites find a way into your property, they will not stop till they consume all cellulose within your premises. These tiny pests are extremely organised and systematic in their approach to get their food source.
Just like any organism, termites do everything in their ability to survive. Each time a nest is threatened with extinction, the queen will go into survival mode. To sustain their species, the Queen termite will produce winged reproductives, also known as alates or swarmers. Home-owners will usually find them flying around a light source after a heavy downpour. These winged reproductives have one purpose, it is to find a suitable environment to start a new nest or colony. One male and female will tunnel into the soil, close to a food source to establish their very own colony.
As time goes on, this new colony will grow larger and much more established. A mature nest can consist of millions of termites. A single mature nest can also have multiple kings and queens. A threat to a nest can come in numerous ways.
- Heavy Rain – Potential Flooding Of The Nest
- Pesticide Application – At An Infestation Within Your Home
- Construction – Soil Disturbances Near A Termite Nest
- Seasonal – Nuptial Flight
