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.

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.

Contact us today for a complete pest control service.

Some Information About Cockroaches

A cockroach can reproduce very quickly, growing from egg to reproductive adult in approximately 50 days, and the female can carry an egg sac which contains up to 50 eggs. They can hide within small cracks and crevices that are easy to overlook, such as microwaves, power points, between drawers, crevices next to dishwasher and fridge compressors.

Cockroaches are insects that comprise of more than 4600 species. 30 of the species are associated with human habitats, including the notorious German cockroach.

What Attracts Cockroaches At Home?

Our homes can provide ideal thriving conditions for cockroaches, even when cleaning is done everyday. The requirement for cockroaches to breed and grow includes food, warmth, moisture and shelter.

Here are some control measures our cockroach exterminator in Melbourne can advise you to put in place:

Sealing the cracks – Cracks and hidden spaces act as a breeding point where cockroaches can lay their eggs and further their reproduction. To start your cockroach pest control off right, it is necessary to seal all crevices and cracks using adequate materials to prevent further reproduction.

Clean food materials – Whether it’s a German cockroach or another species, most cockroaches love to nest in the kitchen where they can have ready access to food and water. You should clean any foods or drinks that have spilt over immediately and make sure all surfaces are as clean as possible. This will deny the cockroaches something to eat and starve them to death.

Seal the broken water pipes – Cockroaches need water for their survival, which is why it can be helpful to seal any broken pipes that may be dripping water. Furthermore, they’re attracted to damp and places that have a lot of moisture, so it’s advisable to drain any stagnant liquids around your home before arranging professional cockroach control in Melbourne.

Empty the bin frequently – Your rubbish bin acts as a harbour for cockroaches where they can get something to eat. You should empty your bin regularly to avoid creating an environment where breeding can occur and a cockroach infestation could take over.

Trapping – Trapping is done using sticky traps that catch the cockroaches and hinder their movements, starving them to death. The traps contain a food or pheromone to entice the cockroaches onto the sticky board. These traps should be kept in a place where cockroaches roam regularly.

If those steps above have been followed and the cockroach infestation still uncontrollable, contact the professional pest controller at Positive Pest Solutions.
