Pests just like humans have been inhabiting the planet since time immemorial. Some of them are beneficial for the planet while some cause a lot of destruction to humans. Pest Control Perth professionals ensure that properties and households in Australia remain free of pests all year round. They are equipped to handle pest infestations of the highest magnitude with ease. The professionals are also better aware of hideouts used by pests and places frequented by them. However, there are too many myths also that surround pests and pest control activities. Continue reading ahead to know more about these myths. 

  1. Houses that are clean do not attract pests

This is a popular misconception among people. However, just maintaining cleanliness in your spaces is not sufficient to keep pests away from your premises. Pests like cockroaches, termites, silverfish, spiders, etc. infest any property irrespective of the cleanliness of the place. Hence, opting for Cockroach Control Perth whenever there is an infestation is important before the infestation goes out of hand. 

  1. Mice and rodents love cheese

Mice and rodents are attracted to cheese is also another popular misconception popularized due to pop culture and comics. They are not necessarily attracted to cheese or foodstuff containing cheese. On the contrary, they are attracted to sugary and fatty stuff easily. So adding a sweet item to the trap and bait can be useful if you are planning to place a trap to catch it. You can also reach out to professional pest control services offering services for elimination of rodent and rat populations from any property.  

  1. If you are not able to see them, they do not exist

There are many pests that can exist in your house and remain hidden from your view for ages. Also there are many pests that can cause a lot of damage to the internal structure of the property before it comes to anybody’s notice. Termites, carpenter ants etc. are an example of such pests. Opt for ant control service on a timely basis whenever you come across any sign of an infestation. Get in touch with a professional pest controller after finding the first signs such as live ants, anthills, mounds of mud near walls or outside the house, crumbling wooden structures etc. Likewise, rustling sounds, discarded wings on window sills and floors are also signs of an ant infestation which should not be ignored. 


  1. A single pest control treatment can be enough for pest elimination 

It is impossible to do away with pest infestation with just one pest control treatment. Pest controllers make use of a single service if the pest infestation is of a small scale. Else, they may also make use of a combination of treatments such as baiting, trapping, chemical usage etc. Likewise, no pest infestation of a larger magnitude can be dealt with in a single session. You will need 2-3 sessions before the pests have gone for good. Even after opting for multiple pest service sessions you would have to take preventative measures to keep pests from coming back to your property. 

  1. Bed bugs exist in dirty beds only

Bed bugs thrive in any environment that provides them with human blood. They can hitchhike from dirty places into cleaner environments easily via travellers and their luggage. They can also travel via gaps and cracks in beds, walls and pipe outlets. Hence it is necessary to keep an eye out on such holes and openings to spot and eliminate any infestation on an early basis.
