Flies

Flies are known to spread a lot of potentially dangerous and deadly diseases. The ‘fly poo’ that you see on your ceiling, door frames, etc. is actually a mark that flies leave by regurgitating saliva as they break down their food. When a fly does this on a potential food source, they are transferring an acidic saliva onto the food to break it down and then suck it back up, effectively possibly transferring salmonella and gastric infections onto what you are about to eat.  The most nuisance flies are the common house fly and blow flies, where often housekeeping and having a spray treatment from Dan’s Property Services can be of great help. Dan’s Property Services recommend fly treatment to all interior areas and front and rear porches, plus any other potential problem areas observed by the technician at the time of treatment.

Cockroaches

Both the American Cockroach and German cockroach seek similar environments in which to breed. A suitable site will consist very simply of food, water, humidity, warmth and a secure breeding place. The American cockroach prefers to breed in and around underground sewer facilities and utility networks from which they may venture out into other buildings. This is why we often find American cockroach activity in older row homes. Areas of high humidity are preferred, such as in basements, boiler rooms, steam tunnels and sewers. German cockroaches on the other hand, are much more likely to be found moving from place to place in bags, boxes and even clothing. With both species, it only takes one pregnant female to create an infestation and cockroach numbers can increase nearly exponentially if conditions are favorable. Get rid of Cockroaches now!

Fleas

Ctenocephalides felis, the ‘cat flea’, is one of the most profuse and prevalent fleas found in the world. As the name suggests, the ‘cat flea’s’ primary host is the domestic cat but they can also live on other pets and animals, such as dogs, rodents and possums. Fleas can enter buildings that do not have pets as they can jump up about 15 cms and enter on peoples shoes and clothes. Even if a structure has been empty for 6 months, should there have been flea larvae or cocoons present, it is possible for the population to have grown to be a nuisance, since a continual food source is not required. Fleas can be very difficult pests to get rid of as they can be brought in to your property from outside sources, even though you may not have a pet. Get rid of fleas now!

Ants

Ants are social insects belonging to the order of insects known as ‘Hymenoptera’ – the same order containing bees and wasps. Social insects, such as ants, live in large communities where they depend upon each other for the survival of the entire colony. Ant colonies generally form underground nests comprised of chambers and interconnecting tunnels where ants store food, lay eggs and maintain nurseries. There can be tens of thousands of ants in a single colony and several colonies inhabiting the soil or landscape surrounding a property. For that very reason, ants can be a particularly difficult pest to eradicate. Although an estimated 14,000 ant species populate the earth, in New Zealand, there are only a handful that are known to invade homes and buildings. Get rid of Ants now!

Wasps

Wasps are insects belonging to the order of insects known as ‘Hymenoptera’ – the same order containing ants and bees. There are a large number of native wasp species in New Zealand, which have evolved here, and have never become a nuisance. In contrast, there are now five social species, which have been accidentally introduced into New Zealand, in recent years, and which are classed as pests, there are: The Asian Paper Wasp, The Australian Paper Wasp, The Common Wasp, The German Wasp and The Scoliid Wasp. There are many diverse reasons for having wasps or bees’s on your property. Each year in spring, the queens will emerge from overwintering and begins to search for new nesting locations. As adults, many wasps feed on nectar and are also attracted to water sources such as ornamental ponds and swimming pools during summer months. Feeding varies from species to species, but may included other insects, nectar and pollen. Get rid of Wasps now!

Rodents

Rodents are mammals that are characterised by having two incisors which must be kept short by gnawing as they grow continuously. Among the most well known and common rodents are: The House Mouse, The Norway Rat and The Roof Rat. These species, are considered to be commensal rodents, meaning that they have an unusual relationship with humans which leads them to ‘share the same table’. Rats are generally larger than mice and can grow up to 450mm long, including the tail, and mice up to 190mm long, including the tail. Both mice and rats, are a common pest problem for New Zealand homeowners and businesses, especially during the winter season. Both rats and mice are looking for shelter, food, and water. Although it is more common to find them nesting and living outside it is common for them to stay in buildings and properties, if the right conditions exist. They will gain entry to properties through cracks and holes, but also through openings that have been made for utilities but the size of hold required will differ by species. As an example, an adult common house mouse can fit through a hole no bigger than 6mm or squeeze through a crack the width of a pencil. Get rid of Rodents now!

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are very small parasitic insects that are rising in number, making a strong comeback after nearly 50 years of limited activity. Adult bed bugs have a distinct reddish-brown colour and have flat, oval-shaped bodies about 6mm in length. In a protected area, an adult female will lay up to five eggs in one day. The eggs are small, approximately 1mm in size and are whitish in colour, making them nearly invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bug eggs are slightly sticky when first laid, which allows them to adhere to surfaces to remain safe until hatching. Once hatched, bed bugs nymphs are no larger then a pinhead, closely resembling the adults, but smaller and lighter in colour until they reach maturity. The nymphs mature rapidly, shedding their exoskeleton as they grow larger after each feeding. Bed buys feed exclusively on blood, preferring human blood, but will also feed on other warm-blooded animals if necessary. Get rid of Bed Bugs now!

Mosquitoes

Thousands of species of mosquitoes inhabit the earth, although only about 16 species call New Zealand home. Mosquitoes feed on nectar like many other insects but female mosquitoes will also feed on the blood of humans and animals to assist with egg production. Mosquitoes typically emerge from their daytime resting places to feed primarily at dawn and dusk. While the male mosquito does not have mouth parts suited to piercing human skin, the female does. Female mosquitoes will use their mouth parts to puncture skin and inject saliva into the wound to prevent the blood from clotting. The discomfort, irritation and swelling from a mosquito bite is the result of the body’s immune response to this saliva. The blood meal taken by the female is used to supplement her diet with essential proteins and iron which she uses (along with carbohydrates derived from plant nectar) to assist in the development of her eggs. Mosquitoes in urban areas may lay eggs in ornamental ponds, rain gutters, bird baths, rain collection barrels, and other surfaces capable of holding water. Get rid of Mosquitoes now!
