I was surprised at how many options we had to get rid of our existing termites and the decisions we had to make to prevent the problem from happening again.

Bed bugs are some of the most difficult pests to deal with. You may have tried to spray your home with various pesticides, but the chemicals only weaken the pests for a few days and they resurface some days later. Often, bed bugs like to be in bedrooms, but may also invade furniture located in other areas of your home. The best way to deal with bed bugs is to seek the services of exterminators or pest control experts in your area.
When the warm weather arrives in the springtime, it brings with it 'swarmers'. Swarmers are flying termites, leaving their colony in search of mates and a potential new home. This can be bad news for you if you have wooden structures around your house and wood within it.
Left undetected and untreated, a colony of termites can wreak structural havoc on your property, leading to expensive repairs. Inside your home, termites can live in your flooring, in your roof space, and even behind your wallpaper.
If your property has rooftop access, you will find that pigeons will begin to favour spending time on your property.

Secondly, the bird droppings that will accumulate on your property will not only be a health hazard but could also cause the premature deterioration of your building materials.

During Australia's hot and dry summer months, the risk of a bushfire breaking out in rural areas rises significantly. Nearly every year, somewhere in the country, lives and homes are lost to fires that spark very suddenly and spread at scarily rapid rates.
