Tim Clinnick is the owner of Pest Control Empire. He says, “With all the development going on in Mernda I found myself in this area almost daily. I’m from the other side of Melbourne so the commute wasn’t ideal. As a result I tracked down a pest manager who just happened to live in Mernda. I offered him a job and he gladly accepted. Since David started he’s been a great addition. He’s got 7 years experience in pest control. If I was to hire someone to do a pest control job, I’d prefer to hire someone local. If you require pest control and you live in Mernda then call us and David will attend”.
Pest issues faced in Mernda include:
- Rodents including rats and mice;
- Crawling insect pests including ants, cockroaches and spiders;
- Flying pests including flies, bees, wasps and springtails; &
- Timber pests including termites, borers and decay caused by moisture.
Tim continues, “A pest that people have little knowledge of is the springtail. These tiny pests are often found in newly constructed homes. Springtails feed on fungas including mould spores. The reason that springtails are attracted to new estate areas is related to construction. Houses and their timber frames are constructed every month of the year. In the colder months the timber dampens. Before the timber can dry out the brick facade and interior plaster walls are added. The lack of ventilation to the frame often means that the timber cannot sufficiently dry. As a result mould can develop. Springtails feed on mould so this explains their presence in new homes. You’ll often find springtails in wet areas like the bathroom or laundry as they require constant moistu
re to survive”.
If you’re hearing noises in your walls or roof in your Mernda home your probably under attack by mice. The mice usually enter weep holes in the exterior brick work, wander around inside the walls and roof and eventually find their way into your home. The most common entry points into the home are around unsealed pipe penetrations and where utility services like gas and electricity are required for heating / cooling and cooking equipment.
