Melbourne is host to an array of pests. In Spring we see an upsurge in the following pests in Melbourne:
In the colder months of Autumn and Winter we see an increase in the following pests in Melbourne:
PEST CONTROL IN WINTER
The reason for the increase in rodent and possum control in Melbourne in the colder months is more due to the fact that these pests need somewhere warm to survive. In warm weather we find that rats, mice and possums are happy to live outdoors in Melbourne.
However, regular rain and the cool temperature levels of Autumn and Winter see these pests move into Melbourne homes in their droves. So rather than an increase in population numbers, the reason more calls are received for Melbourne pest control for these mammals is weather-related.
BEES IN SPRING
Melbourne pest control is therefore very seasonal. As stated, bees are very prominent in Melbourne in Spring. You will notice that on the first few warm days bees will swarm. The old queen and up to half of the original colony will vacate and come to rest at a new site. The colony waits at the new site while a scout bee searches for a suitable location to establish a new colony site.
If we receive a call regarding a swarm of bees in Melbourne we will attend as a priority. If disturbed by a child or a pet the bees will defend themselves. We will always capture the swarm and then relocate them to a safe location. Bees are very beneficial to the environment so we will always endeavour to save them wherever possible.
In Melbourne we see many bee colonies establish themselves within a wall cavity of a home. A very common way that bees will enter into a wall cavity is via a weep hole. Once bees have established themselves in a wall cavity the only viable option is to destroy them. This is a last resort and is the least enjoyable part of pest control in Melbourne.
TERMITES IN SPRING
Termites are another pest that swarms in Melbourne in Spring. Termites live in a colony and some have wings. These types of termites are known as alates or reproductives. They are the future kings and queens of the termite world.
During Spring in Melbourne, usually after rain, these alates will take flight. They are in search of a new location to establish a colony. A male and female will find a suitable site, shed their wings, and begin the mating process. Within a short time, a new termite colony will be flourishing in Melbourne.
If you see flying termites you can be sure a large colony is close by. Termites are poor flyers and will not usually be able to stray too far from their original home. If you see flying termites then it’s essential you call us to conduct a pest inspection in Melbourne.
