End of Lease Pest Control

Landlord vs Tenant – who should pay for the rental property pest control?

The Residential Tenancies Act states that the lessor shall ensure that the Rental Property at the commencement of the tenancy is clean and fit to live in and that the Rental Property is to be maintained so that it remains fit to live in (not clean).
Unless it is stated in the agreement, the landlord is responsible for general pest control for ants, cockroaches, fleas, silverfish, spiders and also for termite protection.

However, the tenant could be responsible for pest control fee if they have actively encouraged a pest infestation. For example bed bugs that might be resulted from travelling, rodents as a result of unclean environment, or fleas originated from tenant’s pet(s).

If as a tenant you are responsible for the pest control treatment, you are allowed to choose your preferred pest company, as long as the treatment is carried out according to the rental agreement. The rented property has to be vacant and has to be done after the carpet has been cleaned. It is in your best interest to organise the pest treatment, otherwise, the real estate agent has the right to not sign over your bond.

If you require End of Lease Pest or Flea Treatment, we could help in providing a prompt, effective and affordable treatments. We have been partnering with landlords, real estate agents and tenants to ensure a pest free premises! Contact us for a free no-obligation quote.

Flea control

Fleas normally become a problem when there are pets in the premises. The main flea species in Australia are cat flea, dog flea, and human flea.

Fleas are small (adult fleas range from 2-4mm), wingless, brown colour and oval shape external parasites.  They have small antennae and mouthparts for piercing and sucking. Fleas able to jump more than 200 times their body length. Depending on the species, fleas feed on human and/or animal’s blood.
Fleas required treatment because they can spread thymus disease, transmit tapeworm larvae, and are also known for transmitting plague from wild rodents to humans.

There are four stages that make up the life cycle of a flea: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The eggs are tiny, white and oval shaped. Adult females lay 4-8 eggs in a cluster on the host animal after a blood feeding. These eggs are commonly found indoors in floor cracks, crevices, skirtings, edges of the rug, furniture and especially pet beddings.

These eggs then transform to a translucent worm-like larva that is covered in bristles. Larva feed on organic matter such as dead skin, hair, faces of the adult fleas. The next stage larvae begin weaving a cocoon and become pupae.

These Pupas grow into adult fleas inside a cocoon that sticks to pet hair, carpet, dust, grass cuttings and many more until they sense vibration, pressure, heat, noise or carbon dioxide that signifies that a potential host and blood source is near.

When adult fleas emerge from their cocoons, they are ready for their first blood feed. They are active, crawling and jumping in hair or fur. Fleas must feed on blood before it is capable of reproducing. Overall, the cycle from egg to adult takes from approximately two weeks to eight months. Under ideal conditions, then female fleas can multiply over 1/4 million fleas in just one month!

If you see signs of fleas (egg or adult) or you experience symptoms of flea bites, such as itchiness at the bite site; red and swollen lump that develops within half hour of being bitten; blister at the site of the wheel that appear one day after and bites primarily on the legs and feet, feel free to contact us to confirm whether you have flea problem at your property.

Depending on the severity, we might need to visit your property to identify which stage of the flea life cycle before deciding on a treatment method. Our technician might also need to treat some outdoor areas and subfloors. Contact us for a free no-obligation quote for your flea treatment.

REMOVING WASP NEST

It is a dangerous task to remove a wasp nest. This is because the wasps in the nests always feel threatened hence they become abnormally aggressive. As a method of defending themselves, they react by stinging you and any person who could be around.

To do away with wasps, instead of removing the nest, you ought to treat it together with the nesting wasp. Professionals at Positive Pest Solutions will effectively eliminate the wasps and ensure you are safe from stings.

Regular checking for nests: the nests are golf size or walnut size when they begin to form. At this early stage, the wasps are few and easier to treat.

Bins safety: bins, which are kept outside, should be tightly fitted with lids. Keeping bins a distance from windows and doors would also reduce the presence of wasps.

Have you ever wondered where cockroaches come from despite having tidy surfaces in your home? Relax, here we explain the genesis of cockroaches in your home, and how you can control them.

Cockroaches are insects that comprise of more than 4600 species of which 30 of the species are associated with human habitats.

WHAT ATTRACTS COCKROACHES AT HOMES?

Our homes can provide ideal thriving conditions for cockroaches. The requirement for cockroaches to breed and grow includes food, warmth, moisture, and shelter.

Here are some control measures:

Sealing the cracks: cracks and hidden spaces act as a breeding point where cockroaches lay their eggs and further their reproduction. It is necessary to seal such crevices and cracks using materials required to prevent further reproduction.

Clean food materials. Cockroaches love to nest in the kitchen where they can have access to food and water. You should clean the food particles and drinks that have spilt over immediately and leave the surface as clean as possible. This will deny the cockroaches something to eat hence starving them to death.

Seal the broken water pipes: cockroaches need water for their survival, and it is necessary to seal all the broken ducts that may be dripping water. Furthermore, they are attracted to damp and places that have a lot of moisture. Thus, apart from sealing the broken pipes, it is advisable to drain the stagnant liquid around your home.

Empty the bin frequently. Dustbin also acts as a medium that harbour cockroaches and even where they can get something to eat. You should drain the container more regularly to avoid providing a pleasant atmosphere where breeding can take place.

Trapping. Trapping is done using sticky traps that catch the cockroaches thus hindering their movements hence starving to death. The traps contain a food or pheromone attraction to entice the cockroaches on the sticky board. These traps should be kept in a place where cockroach runs regularly.

Cockroaches can be very embarrassing and are vital to eliminate them before they become an embarrassment to you. Cockroach control prevents them from further reproduction, and this can be achieved by following the above-highlighted step.
