Pest Control for the Government - Sunshine Coast

Governmental buildings need to be a staple of cleanliness and hygiene, an example to the entire community they serve. A government building filled with bugs, rats or other nasty pests is simply unacceptable. Safeguard Pest Control has been working with public buildings in Australia for 30 years now, and we are here to help.

Government organisations have plenty of buildings and offices to manage, and with the multitude of pests in Australia, things can get out of control pretty quickly. Not to mention the fact that many of these buildings are decades if not centuries old. That’s where our expertise and experience come into place, and we can provide safe and effective treatments and recommendations.

Common Pests in Government Buildings

Whether they are very old or new, most buildings in Australia can get infested be these pests:

Rats & Mice – these animals will not care whether a building is government owned or not.  As long as these pests find the right conditions, they will infest it and multiply fast. They can eat and destroy foods, damage the sewer systems and electrical equipment, make a lot of mess with droppings and urine, but that’s not all. These pests carry a lot of deadly diseases, as well as other pests like fleas, ticks, lice and mites.

Signs of rodents include droppings of various sizes, sightings of live or dead rats or mice, squeaky noises or gnawing sounds, smudge marks caused by their wet and oily fur, tracks in dust or powder, gnawed marks on materials, urine stains or smell.

Birds – the most common birds that can create problems are pigeons, seagulls, starlings and house sparrows. They can cause damage to roof tiles and also block guttering with their nests and feathers. Not to mention the nasty droppings they can leave on buildings, vehicles and paved areas. You really don’t want a bunch of birds to create mess and chaos when an important official is visiting.

Cockroaches – there are various species in Australia and they can be very annoying and dangerous insects. They can carry dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Listeria, E. coli, and also fungi, viruses and parasitic worms. They usually shelter in spots that are hard to reach, such as cracks, crevices, sewers or drains, and get out mostly during the night. Their droppings and body secretions stain and leave a very bad smell, and they can also contaminate foods and packages with their cast skins and egg cases. And last but not least, their shed skins or droppings can trigger asthma attacks on some people. So that’s why cockroaches should be taken very seriously and get removed as soon as possible.

Flies – some government facilities also include kitchens, and these can attract flies. They can multiply very fast and can carry more than 100 pathogens that cause serious diseases in humans. They usually buzz around and lay on dead bodies, faeces or decaying food, so the last thing you want is some flies laying on a gourmet dish during an important official ceremony.

Stored Products Insects – if the facility has a kitchen, it will most likely have stored foods as well. Chances are that these will attract beetles, weevils, mites and other pantry pests. The most susceptible products are cereals, seeds, nuts, spices, teas, dried fruits and even preserved meats. And even if these tiny insects will not consume a large quantity of the products, they will contaminate the entire package through faeces, shed skin or cocoons. The products will then have to be thrown away and create unneeded costs, or might end up in the plates of political figures and that’s definitely a big problem.

Bed Bugs – an important politician or guest might spend the night at the facility, and he / she will require the best conditions and hospitality. In this case, bed bugs are simply not acceptable. Not only they are unpleasant to see, but they also feed with the blood of humans and animals. The female bed bug can lay hundreds of eggs over her lifetime, and these are very tiny. So these nasty insects can multiply very fast and quickly invade your property. Luckily, they don’t transmit diseases, yet they still need to be taken care of as soon as possible.
Spiders – while most of them do not bite or harm people directly, they are still very unpleasant and some people have a phobia for these creatures

Termites – these tiny insects can create huge colonies and cause a lot of structural and economic damage. They can destroy furniture, door and window frames, walls and ceilings, electric wires, important documents, roof tiles and even the foundation of your facility. They usually like to stay hidden, but they give certain clues that a specialist can recognise. That’s why it is important to get a termite inspection at least once every year.
