TERMITES CHEW THROUGH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN TIMBER!

Exterra Gold Coast

There is a LOT of termite activity around the coast, here are some SCARY PHOTOS of termite activity and damage in local properties!

Make Sure They Are Not Eating Your Investment!

WE are often told "we don't have any termites", "we're all good, no termites here", "we had an inspection when we bought the house 5 years ago" ...... only to find in a short space of time people have put their hand through a wall, or a door falls off, or there is just a teensy little bit of activity in the corner of a room behind a sofa... please don't let your property join the termite statistics in South East Queensland.

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL is a TERMITE SPECIALIST!

Optimum Pest Control is a 'Exterra quality preferred operator'

Only a handful of companies on the Coast have this accreditation from the manufacturer - why? Because we do everything CORRECTLY, professionally, we don't cut corners!

Manufacturer's $100,000 timber replacement warranty for COMMERCIAL & STRATA properties, and $250,000 for general residential homes!

Attention Investors And Property Managers - Pest Control For Investment Properties

Given the number of rental properties where Optimum Technicians find German cockroaches infesting kitchens, bathrooms and electrical appliances (which often have to be replaced due to these infestations) - where RATS are running rampant through properties with no professional rodent baiting in place ......... for us it's a 'no brainer' that a professional pest control service should be performed at the property - for the sake of the residents - and also for the well-being of the dwelling itself!

We see a lot of cases where untreated pests cause damage to properties - Cockroaches live in appliances which become a health risk to residents... ants nest around circuitry in wall cavities causing damage and expensive repairs.

Rats chew through electrical wiring and pvc pipes in roof cavities - (sometimes more than once!) often flooding the home and causing extensive damage (short circuiting of wiring has also set fire to properties in Qld in recent times).

All of this causes such a lot of hassle (and danger) for tenants and property/building managers alike. Not to mention EXPENSIVE repairs!

Can we help you to book in your pest control service? Or would you like to know more? Give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

RAT A TAT TAT !

rodent treatment gold coast

Are You Hearing The Pitter Patter Of Little Feet Above Your Head At Night?

Rats are infesting properties all over the coast at the moment. Summer, winter, autumn, spring - there seems to be no worse time for rats round the coast. They need to chew hard objects to keep their incisor teeth short - and chew they do! Chewing through electrical wiring and PVC water pipes in ceilings, causing a lot of expensive flooding, and other damage. WHAT A HASSLE!

OUR rodent baits are top quality, very attractive to rats and mice, and wired into rodent stations so they must eat them on the spot.

They are very cheeky and often come inside any open door or window and eat the food off your bench or out of your fruit bowl!
Don't let them set up residence in YOUR home!

Our RESIDENTIAL RODENT TREATMENTS COME WITH A 3-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY!

TERMITES - yes, we do nag on..... but they are certainly very active, coming up for the damp timber around properties...

Termite Treatment Gold Coast

It can be very distressing for property owners to find they have termites in their home. However, we still find many home owners who have not had a termite inspection 'since they bought the house'.... Sometimes 5 - 10 years can go by and they think "it won't happen to me", or "I must get around to it" ....

WOW - have you been overrun with cockies, ants and spiders WITH THIS FREEZING WEATHER!?

Cockroaches Gold Coast

Even silverfish are showing up in homes around the coast. Silverfish chomp through furnishings like carpets and curtains - they're not as bad as termites... but you don't want them in your home!

All these pests LOVE the rain - crawling into wall cavities, behind the fridge, even in the dishwasher or coffee machine - apart from being a pain in the proverbial, cockroaches (in particular) make a real mess of electrical appliances by nesting around circuitry where there's heat and moisture. German cockroaches are the VERY worst kind - they live in our kitchens and bathrooms and are VERY difficult to get rid of once they take over.
WE CAN GET RID OF THEM! We're using an excellent new product that is having a BIG impact! WE WILL ERADICATE THEM FOR YOU and give you a 12 month service warranty!

ANTS!!

Ants Gold Coast

DID YOU KNOW ants are social insects which form colonies that range in size from a few dozen living in small cavities around the home, to highly organised colonies occupying large areas, and consist of MILLIONS of ants!

Ant communities/colonies are headed by a queen, or several queens, whose only function in life is to lay THOUSANDS of eggs that will hatch, and ensure the colony survives. The female Worker ants (the ones that come out and annoy US) forage for food and look after the 'kids'... they work in the nest and also have a host of other 'ant duties'.

WE OFFER A 12-MONTH WARRANTY AGAINST INSIDE ANTS! Call OPTIMUM PEST today, we will fix your inside ant problem and give you a 12 month service warranty! (07) 5520 7171

Thinking Of Buying? Don't Risk It!!

Termite Inspection Gold Coast

Did you know that the cost of a TERMITE INSPECTION is typically less than 0.01% of the cost of an average home - yet can save you thousands of dollars! It is amazing how many people think 'it won't happen to me'. Until the inevitable happens, and it happens to them.

Research has confirmed that 74% of people would not consider purchasing your property if a pest and building inspection finds termites. It has also been suggested that homes will lose 25% of their value if they have active termites. However, there would be few homes in Australia that don't show signs of at least some previous termite or borer activity. Call us to arrange your next pest & building inspection - or just for your ANNUAL TERMITE INSPECTION - The CSIRO recommends a termite inspection at least once a year!

Did you know... EXTERRA REALLY WORKS AGAINST TERMITES!

Exterra Gold Coast

Termites live in large underground colonies, and you want all the colony members dead, otherwise they will come back at some time in the future to do further damage. We think it's just common sense that you should only be satisfied once all the colony members are ELIMINATED. Considering the serious amounts of damage that termites do, we believe you should settle for nothing less than the TOTAL elimination of their colony.
OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL IS AN 'EXTERRA PREFERRED OPERATOR' We Can Issue Your Property With The Exterra $250,000 Timber Replacement Warranty ON RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES!

How? Why? We have demonstrated the highest degree of competence and skill in ALL aspects of Exterra - installation, monitoring and administration.

The CSIRO rates SE Qld as a big threat - we are classed as a 'HIGH to VERY HIGH chance that termites will attack our homes'. A CSIRO survey reported 32% of homes had a termite presence - this was confirmed by the Institute of Australian Architects whose survey in essence said "of all the homes inspected prior to sale, one third had some termite damage".

Termites munching on Aussie homes are causing more damage than floods, fires and storms combined, a state building authority says!

The pest's voracity across the nation has prompted calls for a nationwide action plan to stop it in its tracks. Archicentre Australia director Peter Georgiev says he wants all state governments to make it mandatory for councils to declare termite infestation zones.

"The termites are eating people out of house and home," Mr Georgiev told AAP. "They don't care about state boundaries. All these boundaries are man-made and they are not in the natural order of things; termites are everywhere."

RATS are everywhere on the coast - This photo is from a recent job!

Rats Gold Coast

Are They Banging Around In Your Roof Cavity - Chewing Cables And Pipes?

Reducing Rodent access into your home
> Repair or replace damaged ventilation screens around the foundation and under the eaves.
> Provide a tight-fitting cover for the crawl space.
> Seal all openings around pipes, cables, and wires that enter through walls or the foundation.
> Rats are VERY flexible, and can flatten down to a very small size - as long as their skull gets through, the rest of the body will follow! The gap needs only be TINY!
> It is almost impossible to 'rodent proof' your home - they can scurry up drainpipes, climb trees...
> Rats follow well-worn trails, with pheromones from previous rats - these trails will have been bringing rats to some properties for a long time, often over many years.

THE BEST OPTION is a professional rodent baiting treatment with top quality bait wired into stations! Our RESIDENTIAL RODENT TREATMENTS COME WITH A 3-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! Contact us to find out more! (07) 5520 7171

LOOK WHAT WE FOUND! ... MORE TERMITES!! ...

Pest Control Gold Coast

Damp timber around property is bringing TERMITES up out of the ground and into our houses. We are finding them every day and it can be very distressing for property owners to find they have caused thousands of dollars in damage.

Termites across Australia cause millions of dollars' damage to homes annually and putting your head in the sand and thinking "this won't happen to me" can be very costly. As a duty of care we need to inform you that termites can attack at any time; old homes, new homes, pole homes, slab on ground homes, homes with chemical termite zones and homes with physical termite systems such as blankets and stainless steel.....

Termites do not care about boundaries or fence lines; their function is to feed the colony. Homes in the bush, on the beach, on canals, high rise apartments, with gardens, without gardens, termites just seek food....and timber in all structures provide a wonderful supply of food for their growing colony.

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL is a TERMITE SPECIALIST and is a GOLD SEAL ACCREDITED EXTERRA installer and operator - WE are one of only a handful of Gold Coast pest companies able to offer the manufacturers $100,000 timber replacement warranty!

MAKE SURE YOUR CONTRACTORS ARE PROPERLY LICENSED

Please be aware that the QBCC (the 'old' BSA - Building Services Authority) has different categories for termite inspectors. If your inspector is doing a general termite inspection to your home, they should have a TERMITE MANAGEMENT CHEMICAL license with the QBCC.

Did you know... If they only have a TERMITE MANAGEMENT PHYSICAL license they are restricted to only inspecting homes that COME UNDER that category... and there are not a lot of properties in that category! THIS is noted on their license history on the QBCC site. There are several pest management companies on the Gold Coast that do NOT have the required license to inspect YOUR home.

Please make sure you are using a fully licensed and insured pest management technician to protect yourself and your property. Our Optimum Pest Team are experienced, licensed and fully qualified!

TERMITES - A few more photos of Termites & damage we have found!

Exterra Termite Interception & Baiting System - Don't forget during a major flood event, water passing through the chemical barrier will diminish its strength, and may also affect any warranty that is in place.

It is important to please call us if your property was affected by the recent extreme weather event! We strongly recommend you get a full termite inspection of your property to ensure it is termite free. Termites are attracted to wet wood and historically, termite activity increases following the wet season, particularly in SE Qld where we have seasons of very warm weather interspersed with rain and high humidity.

This is THE perfect environment for termites, and we are seeing a very high incidence of termite activity in dwellings. Optimum's experienced termite inspectors will conduct a very thorough inspection inside and outside the home, and give advice about termite protection at the property. Our inspections come with a full written report and practical honest advice for property owners.

or is it the GNAWING sound of the rats chewing on your plumbing and wiring up in the roof cavity?

RATS are everywhere on the coast - drains & sewers, lakes, rivers - restaurants, hotels, and general residential properties - you name it - rats LOVE them! they gain access by various entry points around a property...

Some helpful tips to reduce rodent access into your home:
> Make sure you seal all openings around pipes, cables, and wires that enter through walls or the foundation.
> Ensure you have a tight-fitting cover for the crawl space.
> Repair or replace damaged ventilation screens around the foundation and under the eaves.
> Rats are VERY flexible, and can flatten down to a very small size - as long as their skull gets through, the rest of the body will follow! The gap needs only be TINY!
> Rats follow well-worn trails, with pheromones from previous rats - these trails will have been bringing rats to some properties for a long time, often over many years.
> It is almost impossible to 'rodent proof' your home - they can also scurry up drainpipes, climb trees... eeekk!

THE BEST OPTION is a professional rodent baiting treatment with top quality bait wired into stations! Our RESIDENTIAL RODENT TREATMENTS COME WITH A 3-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! Contact us to find out more! (07) 5520 7171

CONTACT OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL TODAY - Our Optimum Pest Team are experienced, licensed and fully qualified!

MAKE SURE YOUR CONTRACTORS ARE PROPERLY LICENSED... Can they show you their pest control license? Does their truck and equipment confirm to the Australian standards?

Please be aware that the QBCC (the 'old' BSA - Building Services Authority) has different categories for termite inspectors. If your inspector is doing a general termite inspection to your home, they should have a TERMITE MANAGEMENT CHEMICAL license with the QBCC.

If they only have a TERMITE MANAGEMENT PHYSICAL license they are restricted to only inspecting homes that COME UNDER that category... and there are not a lot of properties in that category! THIS is noted on their license history on the QBCC site. There are several pest management companies on the Gold Coast that do NOT have the required license to inspect YOUR home.

Please make sure you are using a fully licensed and insured pest management technician to protect yourself and your property. Our Optimum Pest Team are experienced, licensed and fully qualified!

EEEKKK GERMAN COCKROACHES ARE A BIG PROBLEM! - Some photo's from a recent job!

Pest Control Gold Coast

We are finding them EVERYWHERE at the moment, particularly in KITCHENS, BATHROOMS and LAUNDRY's, wherever there is FOOD AND MOISTURE. We've even seen them in BEDS!

If you see them during the day, you have a BIG problem already. A quick SPRAY around these areas WILL NOT kill them - they need targeting, nests need finding and eliminating - they need top quality baits, AND kitchens need to be kept clean and food-free or they won't eat what we are offering! THEY are the FAST BREEDING cockroaches and they are BIG TROUBLE. If you have THEM - you NEED to have US at your place too - ASAP!

PEST CONTROL DONE THIS TIME OF YEAR IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ELIMINATE PESTS FROM YOUR HOME - AND WE GIVE A FULL 12-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! CALL OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL AND SPEAK TO KAREN DIRECT - PHONE: (07) 5520 7171 OR 0415 068 171

LOOK WHAT WE FOUND! ... TERMITES!! ... Can You Hear Them Munching In Your House?

Pest Control Gold Coast

Did you know Schedorhinotermes spp., Coptotermes sp. are two of the MOST damaging termites in the world - and they thrive right here on the Coast. Subterranean termites are the biggest threat in THIS area (SE Qld and Northern Rivers). They are generally ground-dwelling or require contact with the soil or some constant source of moisture and are the main threat posed to timber in the built environment. It is the Subterranean species of termites that cause most of the structural damage to homes. Some of the most common species of Subterranean termites in Queensland are Schedorhinotermes spp., Coptotermes spp., Nasutitermes spp., Microcerotermes spp., Heterotermes spp.

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL is a TERMITE SPECIALIST and is a GOLD SEAL ACCREDITED EXTERRA installer and operator - WE are one of only a handful of Gold Coast pest companies able to offer the manufacturers $100,000 timber replacement warranty!

TERMITES! A video from our recent inspection! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iZVxNh1naI&feature=youtu.be

Pest Control Gold Coast

Did you know that the cost of a TERMITE INSPECTION is typically less than 0.01% of the cost of an average home - yet can save you thousands of dollars! It is amazing how many people think 'it won't happen to me'. Until the inevitable happens, and it happens to them.

New research has confirmed that 74% of people would not consider purchasing your property if a pest and building inspection finds termites. It has also been suggested that homes will lose 25% of their value if they have active termites. However, there would be few homes in Australia that don't show signs of at least some previous termite or borer activity. Call us to arrange your next pest & building inspection - or just for your ANNUAL TERMITE INSPECTION - The CSIRO recommends a termite inspection at least once a year!

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL is a TERMITE SPECIALIST! We are experienced in all areas of remedial termite work, termite treatments, including termite inspections & baiting systems.

FLEAS - Fleas And Your Home

Pest Control Gold Coast

Fleas in houses are usually linked with a pet or a visiting cat or dog. Flea problems often occur when the host animal (cat or dog usually) has been absent for a period of time, such as when the family goes on vacation, taking or boarding the pet.

Fleas may also be driven into the house during prolonged periods of wet weather. Each species of flea has one or two kinds of animals it prefers, although when hungry, it will attack a wide variety of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Cat and dog fleas periodically jump on and off the host. When the host is removed for a period of time, they are left without food. Hungry adult fleas often attack on the first warm-blooded animal that comes in the door, often biting people around the ankles. In addition, vibrations promote emergence of new adults from pupae; walking across the floor will trigger emergence.

If you are having problems with Fleas please call us today (07) 5520 7171

REDBACK SPIDERS

Pest Control Gold Coast

DID YOU KNOW: Mozzies Attract Redback Spiders

With all the water lying around properties at present, Redback spider numbers are set to multiply as they feed on the mosquitoes and other insects that have been breeding in the warm wet weather in recent months.

Redback spiders are a particular problem in South East Queensland & Northern NSW. Their bite can cause a nasty reaction particularly in young children and the elderly. Exterior spider spraying, weephole dusting and a full crack and crevice treatment will eradicate spiders.

COCKROACHES, SALMONELLA & ASTHMA - Photos from a recent job!

Pest Control Gold Coast

CSIRO Report - German Cockroaches Spread Disease & can also cause Asthma attacks!

The CSIRO advise that one of the most significant pest cockroaches worldwide is the German cockroach. They move freely from areas that may harbour pathogenic organisms: for example, from sewers or rubbish... to food - or food utensils - and over food preparation areas.

They are known to carry salmonella and other diseases. Cockroach allergens can also be responsible for asthma. They live and breed in the numerous cracks and crevices and hiding places in most kitchens, bathrooms and living areas. They also live and breed in white goods, often nesting around circuit boards - causing extensive damage. German cockroaches never move far from their food source.

Using our big commercial dusting machines to put a large amount of powder into external weep holes & roof cavities, as well as our top quality products inside the dwelling, our technicians get to the bottom of German cockroach issues! WE take time to LOOK for breeding areas of ALL household pests, and treat behind white goods, into cracks and crevices around the home, eaves, gutters, downpipes, garden areas - doorways, garage, letterbox and refuse areas.... inside and out.

THEN we give a full 12 month service warranty against: internal cockroaches and infestations, silverfish & external webbing spiders. Please ask us for more information! (07) 5520 7171 -  www.optimumpest.com.au/cockroaches.html

TERMITES - Some recent photos of Termites & damage we have found!

Pest Control Gold Coast

Exterra Termite Interception & Baiting System - Did you know during a major flood event, water passing through the chemical barrier will diminish its strength, and may also affect any warranty that is in place.
Please call us if your property was affected by the recent extreme weather event! It is important to get a full termite inspection of your property to ensure it is termite free. Termites are attracted to wet wood and historically, termite activity increases following the wet season, particularly in SE Qld where we have seasons of very warm weather interspersed with rain and high humidity.

This is THE perfect environment for termites, and we are seeing a very high incidence of termite activity in dwellings. Optimum's experienced termite inspectors will conduct a very thorough inspection inside and outside the home, and give advice about termite protection at the property. Our inspections come with a full written report and practical honest advice for property owners.

HELPFUL TIPS for RESIDENTS TO DETER TERMITES: Take action by removing all wet and rotting timber lying around close to or underneath, dwellings, remove mulch from close to the dwelling's external weep holes, and ensure any leaks in roofing are fixed as soon as possible. If you are concerned about anything - please give us a call!

IMPORTANT: During a major flood event, water passing through the 'treated zones' will diminish its strength, and may also affect any warranty that is in place. If your property has been subject to the extreme weather events of the past week, we strongly recommend a full termite inspection of your property to ensure it is termite free! *please check your warranty certificate and exclusions!

DID YOU KNOW

Pest Control Gold Coast

Termites and ants are mortal enemies, their predator-prey relationship dating back into the Miocene.

Both armies, if they come into contact, will fight to the death. Yet termites, despite being sightless, carry out their work within millimetres of ant nests thanks to an incredible talent.

This is a really good time to keep on top of them. They come into our homes looking for food and shelter, or to get away from danger, It's certainly NOT a winter problem - it's been an ongoing problem for the past 2-3 years around the coast. Once the weather cools down they will be looking for WARM shelter - and that will be inside your roof cavity!

RATS need to chew to keep their incisor teeth short - and they chew through electrical wiring and pvc plumbing in roof cavities, making a real mess - tearing insulation & wiring, sometimes even flooding properties with broken water pipes... so don't let them take over at your place!

We use top quality rodent baits, wired into our rodent stations. They actually DO work, RATS and MICE only have to eat a LITTLE bit of the bait to take effect.

COCKROACHES - DON'T PUT UP WITH GERMAN COCKROACHES A MOMENT LONGER! Make sure they're not nesting and infesting your place!

Pest Control Gold Coast Cockroaches

They will seek out food and moisture anywhere they can. Usually in your KITCHEN, BATHROOM AND LAUNDRY. Once they take off they will breed like nothing you have EVER seen - and they can be VERY hard to eradicate. Because cockroaches forage over rotting food and rubbish, they spread bacteria, including salmonella - if you have them at your place they will walk all over your plates and cutlery in the middle of the night - and through your toaster, and coffee machine, your dishwasher..... over your toothbrush, even over YOU while you sleep! ... they are also known to cause asthma!

They can be very difficult to eradicate once they take hold - but OUR PRODUCTS and the processes for pest control are well above the 'norm' for pest control.

DID YOU KNOW ants are social insects which form colonies that range in size from a few dozen living in small cavities around the home, to highly organised colonies occupying large areas, and consist of MILLIONS of ants!

Ant communities/colonies are headed by a queen, or several queens, whose only function in life is to lay THOUSANDS of eggs that will hatch, and ensure the colony survives. The female Worker ants (the ones that come out and annoy US) forage for food and look after the 'kids'... they work in the nest and also have a host of other 'ant duties'.

Do you need help with Ants in your home or office? OPTIMUM can help! We will fix your inside ant problem and give you a 12 month service warranty! (07) 5520 7171

GERMAN COCKROACHES ARE A BIG PROBLEM

Pest Control Gold Coast

We are finding them EVERYWHERE at the moment, particularly in KITCHENS, BATHROOMS and LAUNDRY's, wherever there is FOOD AND MOISTURE. We've even seen them in BEDS!

If you see them during the day, you have a BIG problem already. A quick SPRAY around these areas WILL NOT kill them - they need targeting, nests need finding and eliminating - they need top quality baits, AND kitchens need to be kept clean and food-free or they won't eat what we are offering! THEY are the FAST BREEDING cockroaches and they are BIG TROUBLE. If you have THEM - you NEED to have US at your place too - ASAP!

PEST CONTROL DONE THIS TIME OF YEAR IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ELIMINATE PESTS FROM YOUR HOME - AND WE GIVE A FULL 12-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! CALL OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL AND SPEAK TO KAREN DIRECT - PHONE: (07) 5520 7171 OR 0415 068 171

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST TERMITE INSPECTION?

Termite Inspection Gold Coast

A termite inspection is recommended at least annually, even if you have a termite protection system in place! We do a VERY detailed inspection with a comprehensive written report, including the roof cavity, all accessible inside walls, & external areas - to Australian Standards, OUR termite inspectors go where no inspector has gone before!

Termites are looking for moisture, they are very secretive, and SE Qld has two of the most damaging termites in the WORLD, Coptotermes and Schedorhinotermes - they live underground in nests up to 100m frmo your home. Make sure they are not eating YOUR home! A regular termite inspection of the property - inside and outside - will highlight any termite issues, along with leaky showers and hot water cylinders etc - it's a sensible thing to do!

At OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL we are TERMITE SPECIALISTS! We are experienced in all areas of remedial termite work, termite treatments, including termite inspections & baiting systems. We even carry out pre-purchase inspections and can organise both the BUILDING & PEST for you!

The recent summer weather has ants trailing up into wall cavities and cockroaches living in dishwashers and in the back of ovens... breeding like crazy - whatever supermarket product you are using will NOT get rid of German cockroaches!

Pest Control Gold Coast

We are using an excellent product particularly German cockroaches - these usually infest your kitchen, bathroom or laundry and require specific professional treatment to eradicate the adults and kill the nest...

Our general pest control (inside and out) DOES give a free 12-month service warranty against ant infestations inside, nesting in the wall cavities - most companies don't provide a service warranty against inside ants - but what WE do is quite different to most other pest control companies.

DUSTING THE ROOF AND WALL CAVITIES VIA THE EXTERNAL WEEP HOLES, USING OUR BIG COMMERCIAL DUSTING MACHINES WILL FILL THESE AREAS WITH OUR VERY FINE PERMETHRIN POWDER! This eliminates insects living in these areas, and creates a barrier to other insects wandering inside.

PESTS LOVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS! There is SO much on offer with left over food, food wrappers, wrapping paper - the garbage bin is groaning, the recycling bin too .... here are a few TIPS to help keep COCKROACHES, ANTS & RATS out of your home this festive season:

Pest Control Tips Gold Coast

  1. Keep all foodstuffs in sealed plastic containers, or in the fridge - well out of the way of foraging pests...
  2. Don't leave dirty dishes laying around overnight - put them in the dishwasher and TURN IT ON, or wash up!
  3. Cockroaches DO fly in (they are the big cockies) but IF WE HAVE done pest control at YOUR place, they will soon come into contact with the products we have left behind in the wall cavities, roof void, AND behind your appliances, on skirting boards etc - and that will be the END of them. It's the LITTLE GERMAN COCKROACHES that can invade your kitchen, bathrooms and laundry - where there is moisture and a food source... THEY are the FAST BREEDING cockroaches and they are BIG TROUBLE. If you have THEM - you NEED to have US at your place too - ASAP!
  4. Keep your wheelie bins closed - these are a HUGE attractant to roaming cockroaches, and rats or mice.
  5. Ensure screens are in good repair - and closed. No screens? You can expect a few things to fly in.
  6. Seal up cracks and crevices under the sink which can be a direct access point for pests.
  7. Eliminate areas of moisture around the home. Leaking pipes, taps and hoses - air conditioning units close to the house ......Moisture is VERY attractive to foraging TERMITES. They will invade your home and start CHEWING it.

Call the professionals at Optimum Pest Control today on (07) 5520 7171 to book in your pest control service!

Eradicate Rats And Mice From Your Home!

Pest Control Gold Coast

Are still causing issues when left to their own devices - and they don't just come inside during the winter months! We see them all year long, all over the coast!

Make sure you get a professional rodent treatment - with good quality baits that actually ATTRACT the rats to eat them... the baits should be wired into the bait stations, and put safely out of reach of children and pets.
RATS need to chew on hard things to keep their incisor teeth short - that means your PLUMBING and ELECTRICAL wiring are at risk.

If you hear them scampering around in your roof void - make sure you do something about it! FAST!

Can we help you to book in your pest control service? Give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

ANTS - They Are Always A Pain In The Sugar Bowl Or The Dog Food!

Pest Control Gold Coast

Ants love wall cavities, kitchens and bathrooms, even white goods where they find moisture, and food... Ants also infest decaying timber in retaining walls, fences and buildings - and their activity is often mistaken for termites. Don't get caught out - if you are unsure - PLEASE ASK!

Small piles of material often turns up by doors, window frames and skirting boards, and come back after you have cleaned them up.

This debris is produced by ants and can include ant faeces, fragments of wood, dust, and other insect remains. Ants keep their nests and trails clean by gathering up and discarding waste and litter. This rubbish is often dumped from the same place each time, which can be confusing to the home occupant. At OPTIMUM we give a 12 month service warranty* please ask for more details.

Can we help you to book in your pest control service? Or would you like to know more? Call Karen today (07) 5520 7171.

EXTERRA TERMITE TREATMENT - Treat Termites At Their Source And Finish Them Off. For Good!! Some important information...

Exterra Optimum Pest Control

Treat Termites at their Source and Finish Them Off. For good. Anything Less than 100% Total Colony Elimination isn't 'Gone for Good'.

Will the EXTERRA Stations attract Termites to my home?... Rest easy, the answer is no. The EXTERRA Stations are there to protect your home and will only intercept those termites that have entered into and are actually foraging in your garden. If the Stations weren't there, then these termites would eventually seek out and attack your home.

With EXTERRA, Stations with FOCUS Termite Attractant are discretely placed around your home... The FOCUS evolves the gaseous attractant that termites adore over a 2 m radius. Thus, when the EXTERRA Stations are placed around your home, they link together to form the EXTERRA Termite Interception Zone, protecting your home. EXTERRA then does its job naturally by directing termites to the Stations and not to your home, luring them to their "Last Supper".

OPTIMUM Pest Control is a GOLD SEAL ACCREDITED EXTERRA termite interception & baiting system installer and operator - WE are one of only a handful of Gold Coast pest companies able to offer the manufacturers $100,000 timber replacement warranty.

Exterra is the top of the range termite baiting system and we do recommend it, simply because it is a scientifically proven system, AND it works! Worried about termites? Would you like to find out more? Give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

We have some new photo's while out doing inspections, and guess what we found plenty of!? ....Termites!

Termite Treatment Gold Coast

We are advising all property owners to check the following areas of their properties as these are very attractive to termites:
> Garden beds built up against the house
> Wood chips (Cypress mulch is recommended)
> Excess water lying about
> Leaky windows, showers & roofs
> Piles of timber laying around or under the house

To protect your property from termite attack, the starting point is an annual termite inspection by an experienced, diligent and competent termite inspector who is fully licensed and insured to inspect YOUR property!

Contact us if you are worried about Termites - we can help! Ask us for a free no-obligation quote for your property! CALL US TODAY! (07) 5520 7171 or 0415 068 171.

TERMITES ON THE COAST RIGHT NOW! There Is Still Significant Termite Activity Throughout The Gold And Tweed Coasts Right Now! (some photos from a recent job)

Termite Treatment Gold Coast

Termites are looking for moisture - and the best source of moisture is around your home where you are watering your plants, your lawns, and even washing your car.

A regular termite inspection of the property - inside and outside - will highlight any termite issues, along with leaky showers and hot water cylinders etc - it's a sensible thing to do!

At OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL we are TERMITE SPECIALISTS! We are experienced in all areas of remedial termite work, termite treatments, including termite inspections & baiting systems. We even carry out pre-purchase inspections and can organise both the BUILDING & PEST for you!

OPTIMUM Pest Control termite inspections come with a full written report for each dwelling - making sure you are getting good practical & honest advice about termite issues, and protection of dwellings.

DID YOU KNOW...

Pest Control Gold Coast

  • A COCKROACH CAN LIVE 10 DAYS WITHOUT A HEAD BEFORE IT DIES OF DEHYDRATION...... who in the world discovered that bit of information!?
  • TERMITE DOGS & thermal imaging (infa-red) CAMERAS sound great, but they DO NOT make a good termite inspector, and they don't sign off on the report
  • You cannot see through walls with a thermal imaging camera! It shows areas of HEAT, and our moisture meters show areas of MOISTURE. Termites give off both - and you have to use experience to determine what is happening!

DO YOU HAVE A RENTAL PROPERTY?

Attention Investors And Property Managers - We specialise in Pest Control For Investment Properties!

We see a lot of cases where untreated pests cause damage to properties! Rats chew through electrical wiring and pvc pipes in roof cavities - (sometimes more than once!) often flooding the home and causing extensive damage (short circuiting of wiring has also set fire to properties in Qld in recent times). All of this causes such a lot of hassle (and danger) for tenants and property/building managers alike.

For our investment property owners OPC has a very special price point across all areas of pest management, to take care of their investment property. AND we have excellent service warranties in place to ensure that pest issues are dealt with, even if there is a serious problem in the beginning requiring more than one visit.

ANTS!! Don't put up with ants crawling through wall cavities and nesting in your home or office - call us today, we can help! (07) 5520 7171

Pest Control Gold Coast

Ants and cockroaches are very difficult to eradicate using cheap supermarket products - they just BREED and soon you have dozens of them, crawling over your plates and knives and forks!

The active ingredient (poison) in supermarket products is SO small it is virtually ineffective. It might kill a few ants today, but the nest is still there - underground, near your home, and the ants pour back out and come back inside, nesting in the walls and roof cavity.

Our general pest control (inside and out) DOES give a free 12-month service warranty against ant infestations inside, nesting in the wall cavities - most companies don't provide a service warranty against inside ants - but what WE do is quite different to most other pest control companies.

DUSTING THE ROOF AND WALL CAVITIES VIA THE EXTERNAL WEEP HOLES, USING OUR BIG COMMERCIAL DUSTING MACHINES WILL FILL THESE AREAS WITH OUR VERY FINE PERMETHRIN POWDER! This eliminates insects living in these areas, and creates a barrier to other insects wandering inside.

A few things I bet you didn't know!

Pest Control Gold Coast

  • A RAT can jump about a METER high from a standing start! IMAGINE THAT!
  • Termites are not WHITE ANTS - they are actually a relative of the COCKROACH! It's just that they are WHITE!
  • Termites cannot be exposed to AIR and LIGHT - so they make small mud tube tunnels to run along inside......and easily find their way up into houses
  •  A house is just another TREE to the termite! This is just another selection of nice tasty timber to munch through.... "Mmmmmmm tasty!"
  •  RATS need to chew hard objects to keep their incisor teeth short ... they like PVC water pipes and electrical wiring in the ceilings of houses - oh, and they REALLY like chewing on air conditioning wiring and hoses.

TERMITES ON THE COAST RIGHT NOW! (some photos from a recent job)

Termites Gold Coast

Termites cause millions of dollars damage to homes annually and ignorance of these facts can be costly. Termites attack at any time - old homes, new homes, pole homes, slab on ground homes, homes with chemical termite zones, and homes with physical termite systems such as blankets and stainless steel.

Termites do not care about boundaries or fence lines - their function is to feed the colony. Homes in the bush, on the beach, on canals, high rise apartments, with gardens, without gardens - termites just seek food - and timber structures provide a wonderful supply of food for them.

The Gold Coast is a HIGH TERMITE RISK area and has two of the most economically damaging termites in the WORLD. Schedorhinotermes Spp. and Coptotermes Spp. Don't let your home become a termite statistic!

THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS - Just Another Tool

Thermal cameras must be seen as 'just another TOOL' to a qualified, experienced termite inspector.

Our OPC termite inspections will still take around 1 - 1 ½ hours inside and out - and come with a full written report.

A CAMERA alone CANNOT carry out a quality termite inspection OR sign off on your termite report! These cameras show up areas of HEAT, and our very sensitive moisture meters show up areas of MOISTURE. Termites produce BOTH. During OUR termite inspections, it's the CARE taken and ATTENTION TO DETAIL that make OPC termite inspections such high quality, and why our customers trust our detailed inspection reports.

Most of our business comes from referrals and repeat customers, which speaks volumes about the high quality of our overall service, and expertise. Give us a try! We know you will not be disappointed. Call us on (07) 5520 7171.

PEST CONTROL IN RENTAL PROPERTIES

Rats Optimum Pest Control Gold Coast

Attention Investors And Property Managers - Pest Control For Investment Properties
We see a lot of cases where untreated pests cause damage to properties - Cockroaches live in appliances which become a health risk to residents... ants nest around circuitry in wall cavities causing damage and expensive repairs.

Rats chew through electrical wiring and pvc pipes in roof cavities - (sometimes more than once!) often flooding the home and causing extensive damage (short circuiting of wiring has also set fire to properties in Qld in recent times). All of this causes such a lot of hassle (and danger) for tenants and property/building managers alike.

For our investment property owners OPC has a very special price point across all areas of pest management, to take care of their investment property. AND we have excellent service warranties in place to ensure that pest issues are dealt with, even if there is a serious problem in the beginning requiring more than one visit.

There's ordinary old PEST CONTROL, And There's REAL PEST CONTROL! ... We find in this industry that SO many people do not know the difference.

Cockroaches Pest Control Gold Coast

'Quick fixes' are a very hit and miss affair, doing little to alleviate specific pest issues, and little to protect your home from invasive pests. You will find the 'spray around' has not worked - the pests are back - and you will deem that pest control just does NOT work! Oh dearie me...

FULL quality pest control by OUR company DOES work and involves a lot more than just a quick flick with a nozzle. A very BIG part of our pest control involves the dusting of the external weep holes and roof cavity with a powerful commercial dusting machine that pumps a very fine powder through these areas (cockroaches, ants, silverfish & spiders live and breed in these warm dark areas and have free access in and out of your home).

Also, we do a full spider and ant treatment around the outside gutters, eaves, downpipes, and garden beds which will eliminate ants and spiders, in particular. We look for ANT NESTS and treat then as we go around your property.

NO MESS, NO SMELL, and SAFE FOR CHILDREN AND PETS! Can we help you to book in your pest control service? Or would you like to know more? EMAIL us today or give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

ANTS!! Don't put up with ants in your home or office - we can help! (07) 5520 7171

Did you know ants are social insects which form colonies that range in size from a few dozen living in small cavities around the home, to highly organised colonies occupying large areas, and consist of MILLIONS of ants!

Ant communities/colonies are headed by a queen, or several queens, whose only function in life is to lay THOUSANDS of eggs that will hatch, and ensure the colony survives. The female Worker ants (the ones that come out and annoy US) forage for food and look after the 'kids'... they work in the nest and also have a host of other 'ant duties'.

Attention Investors And Property Managers - Pest Control For Investment Properties

Given the number of rental properties where Optimum Technicians finds German cockroaches infesting kitchens, bathrooms and electrical appliances (which often have to be replaced due to these infestations) - where RATS are running rampant through properties with no professional rodent baiting in place ......... for us it's a 'no brainer' that a professional pest control service should be performed at the property - for the sake of the residents - and also for the well-being of the dwelling itself!

Pests cause such a lot of hassle (and danger) for tenants and property/building managers alike!

For our investment property owners OPC has a very special price point across all areas of pest management, to take care of their investment property. AND we have excellent service warranties in place to ensure that pest issues are dealt with, even if there is a serious problem in the beginning requiring more than one visit.

RAT A TAT TAT !

Are You Hearing The Pitter Patter Of Little Feet Above Your Head At Night?

Rats are infesting properties all over the coast at the moment. Summer, winter, autumn, spring - there seems to be no worse time for rats round the coast. They need to chew hard objects to keep their incisor teeth short - and chew they do! Chewing through electrical wiring and PVC water pipes in ceilings, causing a lot of expensive flooding, and other damage. WHAT A HASSLE!

OUR rodent baits are top quality, very attractive to rats and mice, and wired into rodent stations so they must eat them on the spot.

They are very cheeky and often come inside any open door or window and eat the food off your bench or out of your fruit bowl!

Don't let them set up residence in YOUR home! Give us a call today (07) 5520 7171

TERMITES - MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH!

Please Be Aware That There Is A Lot Of TERMITE Activity Around The Coast This Time Of Year - Some photos of termites from a recent job!

Termites cause millions of dollars damage to homes annually and ignorance of these facts can be costly.
Termites attack at any time - old homes, new homes, pole homes, slab on ground homes, homes with chemical termite zones, and homes with physical termite systems such as blankets and stainless steel. Termites do not care about boundaries or fence lines - their function is to feed the colony. Homes in the bush, on the beach, on canals, high rise apartments, with gardens, without gardens - termites just seek food - and timber structures provide a wonderful supply of food.

The Gold Coast is a HIGH TERMITE RISK area and has two of the most economically damaging termites in the WORLD.

Schedorhinotermes Spp. and Coptotermes Spp. Don't let your home become a termite statistic!

  • A RAT can jump about a METER high from a standing start!
  • TERMITES ARE NOT WHITE ANTS - they are actually a relative of the COCKROACH! It's just that they are WHITE! They cannot be exposed to AIR and LIGHT, so they make small mud tube tunnels to run along inside!

DID YOU KNOW...

Cockroaches, ants, silverfish, spiders, (as well as RATS) all live (and breed) in the walls and roof cavities of our homes - EVEN IN WINTER! AND there are LOTS of rats around all over the coast - chewing through pvc water pipes and electrical wiring, causing a lot of damage - bounding through ceilings, making a real racket.

Our winters are NOT cold enough to stop cockies, ants, silverfish and spiders from breeding - we just don't always SEE them during the cooler months as they are snuggled up...waiting for the warmer weather - just like us! Come spring time, they've had a free run in properties, and they BURST out of everywhere......

Even silverfish are showing up in homes around the coast. Silverfish chomp through furnishings like carpets and curtains - they're not as bad as termites... but you don't want them in your home!

All these pests LOVE the rain - crawling into wall cavities, behind the fridge, even in the dishwasher or coffee machine - apart from being a pain in the proverbial, cockroaches (in particular) make a real mess of electrical appliances by nesting around circuitry where there's heat and moisture. German cockroaches are the VERY worst kind - they live in our kitchens and bathrooms and are VERY difficult to get rid of once they take over.

TERMITES & YOUR PROPERTY - www.optimumpestcontrol.com.au

Termite infestations cause millions of dollars in damage each year to timber in homes across Australia. Termites (white ants) are a problem in most parts of Australia, but they are particularly active in hot, wet areas such as Coastal Queensland. Please read below some useful tips thanks to the QBCC (Queensland Building & Construction Commission):

REDUCE THE RISKS: To deter concealed termite entry to the dwelling, regular maintenance is essential. The following list is a guide to what owners should and should not do to protect their home from termites.

  1. Have the building inspected at least annually by a suitably qualified termite management contractor, licensed in Queensland by QBCC. More frequent inspections may be required in high risk areas.
  2. Owners should perform their own ongoing inspections between professional inspections.
  3. Owners should be careful not to compromise their termite management system. Termite infestations can occur when a perimeter system has been made ineffective.
  4. Special care should be taken to protect the 'weep holes'
  5. Freestanding structures should be built with a minimum 25mm inspection zone between the structure and the house. For more information see the QBCC website: www.qbcc.qld.gov.au

PLEASE make sure your property is free from termites. It causes such heartache for property owners when they discover their property has been attacked by termites - not to mention a large repair bill. CALL US if you are worried! (07) 5520 7171

After all this heavy rain, termites will be coming up out of the ground to eat all that damp timber - many termite barriers will be washed away. We've found TERMITE SYSTEMS in total disrepair around the coast - this does NOT need to happen!

As a duty of care we need to inform you that termites can attack at any time, old homes, new homes, pole homes, slab on ground homes, homes with chemical termite zones and homes with physical termite systems such as blankets and stainless steel. Termites do not care about boundaries or fence lines - their function is to feed the colony.

Homes in the bush, on the beach, on canals, high rise apartments, with gardens, without gardens, termites just seek food, and timber in structures provide a wonderful supply of food for the ever growing termite colony.

There is still significant termite activity throughout the Gold and Tweed Coasts right now! At the moment timbers around properties are wet, mulch in gardens is soggy - making a real meal for TERMITES. WE'RE SEEING SOME ABSOLUTE DISASTERS!

We've included some recent photo's of some of the things we've found on our travels and inspections of late - take a peek!

We are advising all property owners to check the following areas of their properties as these are very attractive to termites: * Garden beds built up against the house, or piles of timber laying around or under the house

  • Wood chips (Cypress mulch is recommended)
  • Excess water lying about, leaky windows, showers & roofs
  • A regular termite inspection of the property - inside and outside - will highlight any termite issues.

rats gold coast

Sometimes there's a THUMP or a SQUEAL or just a loud RACKET through the roof cavity that goes on for hours (and it's not your kids or your neighbours!). It is most likely RATS in your ceiling!

They are everywhere on the coast - we are doing a lot of rodent baiting for residential AND commercial properties up and down the coast - and it is getting worse now the weather is cooling down.

We use a variety of rodent bait types, depending on the situation. When you have a dog, we have a very special bait to protect your pet - and of course, where there are children we always take special precautions in bait location.

Termites cause millions of dollars' damage to homes annually and ignorance of these facts can be costly.

termites gold coast

As a duty of care we need to inform you that termites can attack at any time, old homes, new homes, pole homes, slab on ground homes, homes with chemical termite zones and homes with physical termite systems such as blankets and stainless steel. Termites do not care about boundaries or fence lines - their function is to feed the colony.

Homes in the bush, on the beach, on canals, high rise apartments, with gardens, without gardens, termites just seek food, and timber in structures provide a wonderful supply of food for the ever growing termite colony. The Gold Coast is a high termite risk area and has two of the most economically damaging termites in the WORLD, Schedorhinotermes Spp. and Coptotermes Spp.

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL is a TERMITE SPECIALIST and is a GOLD SEAL ACCREDITED EXTERRA installer and operator - WE are one of only a handful of Gold Coast pest companies able to offer the manufacturers $100,000 timber replacement warranty!

MAKE SURE YOUR CONTRACTORS ARE PROPERLY LICENSED

Please be aware that the QBCC (the 'old' BSA - Building Services Authority) has different categories for termite inspectors. If your inspector is doing a general termite inspection to your home, they should have a TERMITE MANAGEMENT CHEMICAL license with the QBCC.

Did you know... If they only have a TERMITE MANAGEMENT PHYSICAL license they are restricted to only inspecting homes that COME UNDER that category... and there are not a lot of properties in that category! THIS is noted on their license history on the QBCC site. There are several pest management companies on the Gold Coast that do NOT have the required license to inspect YOUR home.

Please make sure you are using a fully licensed and insured pest management technician to protect yourself and your property. Our Optimum Pest Team are experienced, licensed and fully qualified!

COCKROACHES - Make sure they're not nesting and infesting your place!

Cockroaches, particularly German Cockroaches, live behind appliances, under your sink area, inside your cupboards, dishwasher, microwave, oven, and even inside the mechanism of your coffee machine - anywhere there is moisture and warmth... and FOOD.

They can be very difficult to eradicate once they take hold - but our products and OUR processes for pest control are well above the 'norm' for pest control.

We are having a MAJOR impact on the cockroach population in homes all over the coast.

We give a FREE 12 month service warranty on Cockroaches infestations around your kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Give us a call (07) 5520 7171

RATS & MICE IN THIS COOLER WEATHER - Are They Banging Around In Your Roof Cavity - Chewing Cables And Pipes?

Did you follow our important tips to reducing rodent access into your home?

If you are still hearing rodent activity don't forget the best option is a professional rodent baiting treatment with top quality bait wired into stations! OPTIMUM'S RODENT BAITS are very tasty, so foraging rats are attracted to them. Because they are wired into the stations the rodents MUST eat them on the spot and not 'squirrel' them away for another day.....

IMPORTANT: Our OPTIMUM technicians always leave a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) with all the active ingredients documented, as required by QLD & NSW Health Departments.

Don't forget... Our RESIDENTIAL RODENT TREATMENTS COME WITH A 3-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! Call us for further information (07) 5520 7171

With the changing weather - Is your house being taken over by cockroaches, ants, silverfish and spiders?

All pests love the humidity - with cockies, ants, silverfish and spiders making a real nuisance of themselves. Cockroaches, spiders and ants crawl into wall cavities, behind the fridge, even in the dishwasher or coffee machine - apart from being a pain in the proverbial, cockroaches (in particular) make a real mess of electrical appliances by nesting around circuitry where there's heat and moisture.

BED BUGS - How Do You Know You Have Them? Are They Really Bed Bugs? Where Do You Look To Find Them?

  1. The Bed Base is by far the most common place to find Bed Bugs. Particularly where the bed base dust material on the bottom is stapled to the base frame. Where this material attaches to the bed base is a favourite hiding place because it's never disturbed and is still close to their feeding host (that's you and me.... Sleeping!)
  2. Mattress Seams - the seams of the mattress can be infested if there is little disturbance to the Bed Bug. Tags on the mattress can also be a great place for them to hide.
  3. Head Board - Depending on the material used, a headboard can be a good place for Bed Bugs. The more joins and cracks in the headboard the more likely the Bed Bug will find a home there.
  4. Wheels of the Bed - the join between the wheel and the bed base is tight and never disturbed. A perfect place for Bed Bugs to breed.
  5. Bedside Table - Although it's not as common to find them in bedside tables, Bed Bugs will still infest them if they provide easy access to the host.... You and Me!
  6. Carpet Edges - Bed Bugs love to get into tight places, and where the carpet meets the wall is a join they head for. They'll often hang out just under the carpet edge so be sure to check under these areas, using something to lift the carpet.
  7. Luggage - we transport Bed Bugs around in the seams and edges of our luggage. Check your luggage inside and out and you may find some Bed Bugs, or the tell-tale signs of blood spots.EWWWWWWWW.

ANTS!!! DON'T PUT UP WITH THEM!

WE OFFER A 12-MONTH WARRANTY AGAINST INSIDE ANTS!

Ants are social insects which form colonies that range in size from a few dozen living in small cavities around the home, to highly organised colonies which can sometimes occupy large areas, and consist of millions of ants. They communicate and cooperate using chemicals (pheromones) that can alert others to danger or lead them to a good food source.

Ant communities/colonies are headed by a queen, or several queens, whose sold function in life is to lay THOUSANDS of eggs that will hatch, and ensure the colony survives. The Worker ants (the ones that come out and annoy US) are wingless females that never reproduce. They forage for food and look after the 'kids'... they work in the nest and also have a host of other 'ant duties'. Male ants have only one role, mating with the queen. After they've done that they may die. Goodness!

Following our GENERAL PEST CONTROL Treatment, we warranty against inside ants for a full 12 months!! As well as cockroaches, silverfish and external webbing spiders! Call us on (07) 5520 7171 to book in your pest control service.

RAT-A-TAT-TAT! Is the pitter-patter of tiny feet keeping you awake at night...

or is it the GNAWING sound of the rats chewing on your plumbing and wiring up in the roof cavity?

RATS are everywhere on the coast - it's where we live - drains & sewers, lakes, rivers - restaurants, hotels, and general residential properties - you name it - rats LOVE them! they gain access by various entry points around a property... see below for some helpful information to reduce rodent access into your home!

Reducing Rodent access into your home:
> Repair or replace damaged ventilation screens around the foundation and under the eaves.
> Provide a tight-fitting cover for the crawl space.
> Seal all openings around pipes, cables, and wires that enter through walls or the foundation.
> Rats are VERY flexible, and can flatten down to a very small size - as long as their skull gets through, the rest of the body will follow! The gap needs only be TINY!
> It is almost impossible to 'rodent proof' your home - they can scurry up drainpipes, climb trees...
> Rats follow well-worn trails, with pheromones from previous rats - these trails will have been bringing rats to some properties for a long time, often over many years.

THE BEST OPTION is a professional rodent baiting treatment with top quality bait wired into stations! Our RESIDENTIAL RODENT TREATMENTS COME WITH A 3-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! Contact us to find out more!

Termite Treatment Gold Coast SOME RECENT PHOTOS! - www.optimumpest.com.au

There is still significant termite activity throughout the Gold and Tweed Coasts right now! At the moment timbers around properties are wet, mulch in gardens is soggy - making a real meal for TERMITES. WE'RE SEEING SOME ABSOLUTE DISASTERS!

We've included some recent photo's of some of the things we've found on our travels and inspections of late - take a peek!

We are advising all property owners to check the following areas of their properties as these are very attractive to termites:
> Garden beds built up against the house, or piles of timber laying around or under the house
> Wood chips (Cypress mulch is recommended)
> Excess water lying about, leaky windows, showers & roofs
> A regular termite inspection of the property - inside and outside - will highlight any termite issues.

BED BUGS - Don't Let Them Hitch A Ride To Your Place!

Bed bugs start life as an egg which takes about 10 days to hatch. Bed bugs are attracted to warmth and carbon dioxide. Feeding occurs mainly at night. During the day they seek shelter and become quite inactive while digesting their meal. They like dark locations, under mattresses, between floor boards, behind paintings and under carpets, behind skirting boards and in the cracks and crevices of walls, bed frames and other furniture.

The dramatic resurgence of bed bugs has affected almost all strata of society. In Australia, Professional Pest Managers have reported bed bug infestations being carried out in all sorts of accommodation. The Bed Bug Code of Practice - for the control of bed bug infestations in Australia is a good start to improve basic knowledge and awareness.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE A COPY OF THE CODE OF PRACTICE PLEASE LET US KNOW AND WE WILL EMAIL YOU A COPY!

FLEAS And Your Home

Fleas in houses are usually linked with a pet or a visiting cat or dog. Flea problems often occur when the host animal (cat or dog usually) has been absent for a period of time, such as when the family goes on vacation, taking or boarding the pet.

Fleas may also be driven into the house during prolonged periods of wet weather. Each species of flea has one or two kinds of animals it prefers, although when hungry, it will attack a wide variety of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Cat and dog fleas periodically jump on and off the host. When the host is removed for a period of time, they are left without food. Hungry adult fleas often attack on the first warm-blooded animal that comes in the door, often biting people around the ankles. In addition, vibrations promote emergence of new adults from pupae; walking across the floor will trigger emergence.

Have your carpets cleaned BEFORE you have a flea treatment carried out. Do not vacuum or mop for at least 14 days after the flea treatment. Please be patient. Even when everything has been done correctly, you will still see newly hatched fleas, usually for several weeks. These will die in the chemical residue in your carpet/flooring.

Optimum Pest Control gives a full 3-month service warranty on our flea treatments inside. Phone Karen on (07) 5520 7171 to find out more.

TERMITES Chemical Barriers Washed Away

Did you know the Exterra Termite Interception & Baiting System is NOT affected by extreme weather!? During a major flood event, water passing through the chemical barrier will diminish its strength, and may also affect any warranty that is in place.

If your owner's properties have been subject to the extreme weather events of recent months, we strongly recommend a full termite inspection of your property to ensure it is termite free. Termites are attracted to wet wood and historically, termite activity increases following the wet season, particularly in SE Qld where we have seasons of very warm weather interspersed with rain and high humidity. This is THE perfect environment for termites, and we are seeing a very high incidence of termite activity in dwellings.

Optimum's experienced termite inspectors will conduct a very thorough inspection inside and outside the home, and give advice about termite protection at the property. This includes an inspection of the ROOF CAVITY viewing roofing timbers, checking all internal walls, bathrooms (bathrooms are a real hot spot for termite activity due to a high incidence of leaky showers - our sensitive moisture metres will highlight any wet areas around a property that may need further attention - and we also have our THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA if we need it.

NOTE: Thermal Imaging Cameras DO NOT SEE THROUGH WALLS - but are just another handy tool in the detection of termites! Our inspections come with a full written report and practical honest advice for property owners.

COCKROACHES, SALMONELLA & ASTHMA - CSIRO Report - German Cockroaches Spread Disease & Cause Asthma!

The CSIRO advise that one of the most significant pest cockroaches worldwide is the German cockroach. They move freely from areas that may harbour pathogenic organisms: for example, from sewers or rubbish... to food - or food utensils - and over food preparation areas.

They are known to carry salmonella and other diseases. Cockroach allergens can also be responsible for asthma. They live and breed in the numerous cracks and crevices and hiding places in most kitchens, bathrooms and living areas. They also live and breed in white goods, often nesting around circuit boards - causing extensive damage. German cockroaches never move far from their food source. Their small size means that they are initially tolerated by human occupants, many of whom don't recognise early nymphal stages as cockroaches. Their rapid reproduction rate enables a few individuals to become a major pest problem over one season.

Using our big commercial dusting machines to put a large amount of powder into external weep holes & roof cavities, as well as our top quality products inside the dwelling, out technicians get to the bottom of German cockroach issues! WE take time to LOOK for breeding areas of ALL household pests, and treat behind white goods, into cracks and crevices around the home, eaves, gutters, downpipes, garden areas - doorways, garage, letterbox and refuse areas.... inside and out.

THEN we give a full 12 month service warranty against: internal cockroaches & and infestations,silverfish & external webbing spiders. Please ask us for more information!

Did you know... Termites are attracted to moisture and wood, ESPECIALLY rotting wood!

After more summer rain we are reminding everyone to check areas of their homes to help prevent termites:
> Try to remove excess water laying about around your property
> Fix leaky showers, bathrooms & roofs
> Remove any piles of timber laying around the yard
> Don't forget to check for timber laying around under the house as well
> Check and make sure you don't have garden beds built up against the house

Thinking Of Buying? Don't Risk It!!

Did you know that the cost of a TERMITE INSPECTION is typically less than 0.01% of the cost of an average home - yet can save you thousands of dollars! It is amazing how many people think 'it won't happen to me'. Until the inevitable happens, and it happens to them.

New research has confirmed that 74% of people would not consider purchasing your property if a pest and building inspection finds termites. It has also been suggested that homes will lose 25% of their value if they have active termites. However, there would be few homes in Australia that don't show signs of at least some previous termite or borer activity. Call us to arrange your next pest & building inspection - or just for your ANNUAL TERMITE INSPECTION - The CSIRO recommends a termite inspection at least once a year!

Rats All Over The Gold Coast At The Moment!

This is a really good time to keep on top of them. They come into our homes looking for food and shelter, or to get away from danger, It's certainly NOT a winter problem - it's been an ongoing problem for the past 1-2 years around the coast. Once the weather cools down they will be looking for WARM shelter - and that will be inside your roof cavity!

RATS need to chew to keep their incisor teeth short - and they chew through electrical wiring and pvc plumbing in roof cavities, making a real mess - tearing insulation & wiring, sometimes even flooding properties with broken water pipes... so don't let them take over at your place!

We use top quality rodent baits, wired into our rodent stations. They actually DO work, RATS and MICE only have to eat a LITTLE bit of the bait to take effect. We also give a 3 month service warranty for our residential rodent treatments - and we DO go back if the problem persists, to top them up. Give us a call with any queries you have!

GERMAN COCKROACHES IN YOUR HOME?

Cockroaches wander through our garbage, and then over our plates, cutlery, and in our cupboards - all through our foodstuffs. They carry salmonella and other diseases, as well as cause allergies. They also wreck electrical appliances - you do not (and should not) have to put up with them.

A FULL PEST CONTROL TREATMENT FOR COCKROACHES, ANTS, SILVERFISH & SPIDERS WILL ERADICATE THESE PESTS! AND we give a full 12 month service warranty against INSIDE cockroaches!

Top-quality Cockroach baits are used, set in strategic places - and our technicians SEARCH for the nest and eradicate it. To book in your pest control service give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

Can You Hear Them Munching In Your House?

Termites date back more than 100 million years to the Cretaceous period. Although they are commonly called 'white ants', they are actually more closely related to cockroaches and in fact have been recently included into the cockroach order Blattodea.

Did you know Schedorhinotermes spp., Coptotermes sp. are two of the MOST damaging termites in the world - and they thrive right here on the Coast. Subterranean termites are the biggest threat in THIS area (SE Qld and Northern Rivers). They are generally ground-dwelling or require contact with the soil or some constant source of moisture and are the main threat posed to timber in the built environment. It is the Subterranean species of termites that cause most of the structural damage to homes. Some of the most common species of Subterranean termites in Queensland are Schedorhinotermes spp., Coptotermes spp., Nasutitermes spp., Microcerotermes spp., Heterotermes spp.

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL is a TERMITE SPECIALIST and is a GOLD SEAL ACCREDITED EXTERRA installer and operator - WE are one of only a handful of Gold Coast pest companies able to offer the manufacturers $100,000 timber replacement warranty!

Don't blame termites - it was white ants this time!

Chinese farmer buries money for safekeeping but termites ate the stash! 

A 60-year-old farmer in Sichuan, China, found himself 20,000 yuan ($3,000) poorer when the banknotes he buried in his bedroom had been destroyed by white ants.

Qi Shengli, who lives in Goujiao town in Yuechi county, told Chinese media outlets that he didn't remember exactly how long the money was stored in the 15 cm (6-inch) deep hole he dug in the corner of his bedroom. "It might be one or two years," he said.

RAT-A-TAT-TAT .... what's that bounding around in YOUR roof cavity?

We ALWAYS use the VERY BEST QUALITY rodent baits in our rodent stations - cheaper baits are very soapy and the rats will NOT eat them - the cheap baits are often found lying around in roof cavities untouched while rats run around them!

RATS LOVE our baits - and WE WIRE PLENTY of them into each station - (our big tamper-proof stations take SIX - EIGHT baits) they actually DO work, RATS and MICE only have to eat a LITTLE bit of the bait to take effect. We also give a 3 month service warranty for our residential rodent treatments - and we DO go back if the problem persists, to top them up.

WE ALSO CARRY OUT: TREATMENTS FOR FLEAS, BEES, WASPS, BIRD MITES, BED BUGS...... Call Karen to find out more on (07) 5520 7171!

PROPERTY TIP:

After a summer of rain we have been advising all property owners to check the following areas of their properties that are very attractive to termites:

> Garden beds built up against the house
> Wood chips (Cypress mulch is recommended)
> Excess water laying about
> Leaky windows, showers & roofs
> Piles of timber laying around or under the house

Termites are attracted to moisture and wood, ESPECIALLY rotting wood!

Two exotic termites find love in Florida, worrying researchers

Two particularly hungry, exotic termite species apparently have found love halfway around the world and, as with so many other Florida hook-ups, the results are disturbing.

Asian and Formosan subterranean termites are two of the most destructive termite species in the world, responsible for much of the estimated $40 billion in economic losses attributed to termites annually. Their habitat ranges overlap in lush South Florida, already home to a daunting number of invasive plant and animal species thriving where they should not. Each termite invaded Florida, probably through cargo shipments, several decades ago, but experts believed the colonies didn't mingle because their aboveground mating swarms launched in different months.

PEST & BUILDING INSPECTIONS - Your Pest Inspector Is Looking For Termites!

Usually when a purchaser is borrowing money to buy a property, lending houses will require a PEST & BUILDING INSPECTION. Basically, this is to ensure the property has no major defects, and that it is not being eaten by termites. SE QLD has TWO of the most damaging termites in the WORLD - Coptotermes and Schedorhinotermes - you really don't want to purchase a property to find they have already moved in!

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL always recommends DWELL BUILDING SERVICES for building inspections. Working with our TIMBER PEST INSPECTOR, prospective purchasers will have two experienced inspectors working together to carry out the very best inspections possible.

REMEMBER: IF termites are found at a property you are keen on buying - or that you already OWN, PLEASE DO NOT DESPAIR! THERE IS USUALLY A SOLUTION! ASK US FOR MORE INFORMATION or an obligation free quote on termite eradication, baiting systems, OR just ask us for some good old fashioned honest advice! EMAIL us today or give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

DON'T PUT UP WITH GERMAN COCKROACHES A MOMENT LONGER!


There are many different types of cockroaches in SE QLD, but none as prolific a breeder than the German cockroach!

They will seek out food and moisture anywhere they can. Usually in your KITCHEN, BATHROOM AND LAUNDRY. Once they take off they will breed like nothing you have EVER seen - and they can be VERY hard to eradicate. Because cockroaches forage over rotting food and rubbish, they spread bacteria, including salmonella - if you have them at your place they will walk all over your plates and cutlery in the middle of the night - and through your toaster, and coffee machine, your dishwasher..... over your toothbrush, even over YOU while you sleep! ... they are also known to cause asthma!

A FULL PEST CONTROL TREATMENT FOR COCKROACHES, ANTS, SILVERFISH & SPIDERS WILL ERADICATE THESE PESTS! AND we give a full 12 month service warranty against INSIDE cockroaches - and inside ANTS!

Top-quality Cockroach baits are used, set in strategic places - and our technicians SEARCH for the nest and eradicate it. Ask us for more information! Or to book in your pest control service EMAIL us today or give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

SUGAR ANTS - Over 100 Different Types!


There are MORE than ONE HUNDRED Australian species of SUGAR ANTS and they can be among some of the most common ants!

  • THE HOUSEHOLD SUGAR ANT: Camponotus humilior (length 5-8 mm) commonly nests inside houses in wall cavities or ceiling spaces in south-east Queensland.
  • THE GOLDEN-TAILED SUGAR ANT: Camponotus aeneopilosus (length 5-9 mm), is common in open forests and woodlands in eastern mainland Australia.
  • THE BANDED SUGAR ANT: Camponotus consobrinus (length 7-12 mm), is widely distributed in open forest, woodlands and grasslands in south-eastern Australia. (thanks to the Queensland Museum for the above information)
  • THE WHITE FOOTED HOUSE ANT: Is a very common annoyance for residents of SE Queensland. They are strongly attracted to sweet foods but they will also feed on dead insects and other protein.

DUSTING THE ROOF AND WALL CAVITIES VIA THE EXTERNAL WEEP HOLES, USING OUR BIG COMMERCIAL DUSTING MACHINES WILL FILL THESE AREAS WITH OUR VERY FINE PERMETHRIN POWDER! This eliminates insects living in these areas, and creates a barrier to other insects wandering inside.

Following our GENERAL PEST CONTROL Treatment, we warranty against inside ants for a full 12 months!! As well as cockroaches, silverfish and external webbing spiders! Call us on (07) 5520 7171 to book in your pest control service.

Property Tip:

DEAD PALM TREES | Dead palm tree stumps hold a LOT of moisture and are an attractive feeding site for termites! Make sure you remove old palm stumps - stump grinding is a good option but be sure to remove the wood shavings and don't use them as mulch ...as these are still a lure to TERMITES foraging in your properties....

EWWWWWWWWWW - German Cockroaches

We are finding them EVERYWHERE at the moment, particularly in KITCHENS, BATHROOMS and LAUNDRY's, wherever there is FOOD AND MOISTURE. We've even seen them in BEDS!

If you see them during the day, you have a BIG problem already. A quick SPRAY around these areas WILL NOT kill them - they need targeting, nests need finding and eliminating - they need top quality baits, AND kitchens need to be kept clean and food-free or they won't eat what we are offering! THEY are the FAST BREEDING cockroaches and they are BIG TROUBLE. If you have THEM - you NEED to have US at your place too - ASAP!

Exterra

Ever wanted to know exactly how Exterra works against Termites?

YOU'VE GOT TERMITES and you want them gone. Here's how EXTERRA does it.

1. EXTERRA starts in the ground...

The first step of using EXTERRA is to install In-ground Stations around your property where termites are likely to be foraging for food. The Stations contain eucalypt timber interceptors that numerous, independent, studies have shown are the termites preferred food source.

Attention Investors And Property Managers - Pest Control For Investment Properties

Given the number of rental properties where Optimum Technicians finds German cockroaches infesting kitchens, bathrooms and electrical appliances (which often have to be replaced due to these infestations) - where RATS are running rampant through properties with no professional rodent baiting in place ......... for us it's a 'no brainer' that a professional pest control service should be performed at the property - for the sake of the residents - and also for the well-being of the dwelling itself!

Pests cause such a lot of hassle (and danger) for tenants and property/building managers alike!

For our investment property owners OPC has a very special price point across all areas of pest management, to take care of their investment property. AND we have excellent service warranties in place to ensure that pest issues are dealt with, even if there is a serious problem in the beginning requiring more than one visit.

There's PEST CONTROL, And There's REAL PEST CONTROL!

We find in this industry that SO many people do not know the difference. One company can offer to come and do a 'cockroach pest spray' for $110 - and some people will JUMP at the chance of such a great price! BUT, what will you get for your hard-earned $110? More than likely, a 20 minute visit with a "bit of a spray around" - and if your problem persists you may not get anyone to come back. You will find the 'spray around' does not worked - the pests are back - and you will deem that pest control just does NOT work! Oh dearie me...

OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL OFFER A FULL quality pest control service that DOES work! It involves quite a lot more than just a quick flick with a nozzle. A very BIG part of our pest control involves the dusting of the external weep holes and roof cavity with a powerful commercial dusting machine that pumps a very fine powder through these areas. The powder/dust in the cavities will eradicate pests, and stop them from coming back in to nest in these areas. Also, we do a full spider and ant treatment around the outside gutters, eaves, downpipes, and garden beds which will eliminate ants and spiders, in particular.

Can we help you to book in your pest control service? Or would you like to know more? Give us a call (07) 5520 7171.

GREATLY APPRECIATED FEEDBACK!

What a great way to start the week... how is this great testimonial received from our valued client:

"As the Office Manager of Elliott Michaels Realtor I have been working with Mike and Karen for over 7 years. In my role I oversee a large property management department that utilises the services of Optimum for our managed investment properties.

Firstly from an administration perspective Karen is absolutely fantastic and we never have to worry about our tenants not being contacted in a timely manner. Karen is always in touch with them promptly on receiving our work order and the other important factor is that we receive invoices promptly when the job is completed. As a real estate office these are extremely important factors as we do not have to spend unnecessary time following up when the work order is issued we know the job will be done.

The other great thing is that they have a reminder system to let us know when a property is due to be inspected or treated again so we don't have to worry just wait for the email and then book the job.

Now on the technical side we have every confidence in the team at Optimum to get the job done and get it done well. We have always received great feedback from our tenants and if on the rare occasion we have had a further problem at the property they are back in a flash no questions asked.

The team are very knowledgeable and can provide the right treatment for a specific problem if that is what is required.

I would highly recommend Mike, Karen and the team and I would be happy to speak to any potential clients that would like to confirm my recommendation."

WE LOVE TESTIMONIALS

Thanks Kerry, some greatly appreciated feedback received this week!!

"I would like to thank you and your team from Optimum Pest Control for the service I received from your company. I had a problem with ants outside climbing up the wall and I tried every product known to man from the hardware to get rid of them, simply having no luck at all.

As soon as I mentioned this to you, the process from there was remarkable!

You arranged my pest control, sent me a reminder text the day before to confirm times and this resembles the expertise and real professionalism you and your company delivers.

Ryan and Howard arrived on time, worked fantastic as a team providing a very thorough, informative, professional and friendly service.

Howard looked after the outside and Ryan looked after the inside of my home, also taking the time to reassure me that it was extremely safe for my cat "Jedi" and he was in good care. I knew this already as Jedi was sitting right next to Ryan TRUST is a big thing and this only goes to show, and say, that I highly recommend Karen, Mike, Ryan, Howard and the team from Optimum Pest Control to look after all your "Pest Issues"!!

Call Karen and the team today, you will find out why they are the best!! I can honestly say there is not an ant to be seen, the perfect result and exactly what I was after."

Kind Regards, Kerry Noonan, Nu-Style Signs, Tweed Heads South

Welcome to our newest technician Howard!

DID YOU KNOW...

Cockroaches, ants, silverfish, spiders, (as well as RATS) all live (and breed) in the walls and roof cavities of our homes - EVEN IN WINTER! AND there are LOTS of rats around all over the coast - chewing through pvc water pipes and electrical wiring, causing a lot of damage - bounding through ceilings, making a real racket.

Our winters are NOT cold enough to stop cockies, ants, silverfish and spiders from breeding - we just don't always SEE them during the cooler months as they are snuggled up...waiting for the warmer weather - just like us! Come spring time, they've had a free run in properties, and they BURST out of everywhere......

PEST CONTROL DONE THIS TIME OF YEAR IS STILL VERY EFFECTIVE and WILL ELIMINATE THESE PESTS FROM YOUR HOME - AND WE GIVE A FULL 12-MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY! EVEN on INSIDE ANTS!

WE WANT TO HELP YOU WITH RATS & MICE!

rats & mice

Are they banging around in your roof cavity - chewing cables and pipes?

OPTIMUM'S Rodent Baiting programmes include:

  • COMMERCIAL AREAS: These are used in public areas, accessible by children and pets, they involve the strategic placement of strong, black plastic, locked rodent bait stations with commercial strength, baits wired inside. Our commercial baits are very tasty, so rats are attracted to them!
  • RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES: To treat rats and mice in residential properties where there are children or pets, OPTIMUM technicians prefer to install bait stations in the roof cavity only, as rats and mice occupy these areas of the home where they are not disturbed.

Did you know our OPTIMUM technicians always leave a material information sheet with all the active ingredients documented, as required by QLD & NSW Health Departments.

Call us for further information (07) 5520 7171

CANE TOADS!

Sometimes what might seem as a good idea at the time can produce some devastating side-effects.... Such is the case with the introduction to Australia of the CANE TOAD!

ALONG COMES .......HOPSTOP..... THE humane spray control for Cane Toads AVAILABLE FROM OPTIMUM PEST CONTROL! HOPSTOP is the ONLY product approved for Cane Toad control - it's convenient and effective and easy to use - when used according to the label it is safe for people and pets!

WILL TERMITES REALLY EAT MY HOUSE? The Annual Damage Bill Is Over $1Billion In Australia...

termites

Many home owners put their heads in the sand when it comes to termites, and think "it won't happen to me"... READ ON for some scary statistics - and some even scarier photos we took at recent jobs!

According to the CSIRO, S E QLD are classed as HIGH to VERY HIGH chance that termites will attack your home! The most recent CSIRO survey reported 32% of homes had a termite presence. This has been confirmed by the Institute of Australian Architects whose survey in essence said "of all the homes inspected prior to sale, one third had some termite damage".

Another important statistic is that in 2015 less than 20% of homes are inspected or serviced by the professional pest control industry. That means more than 80% of us are blithely believing "it won't happen to me"!!! If 1 in 3 homes are damaged by termites - and yours is one of the other 2... for a small annual fee - why wouldn't you have an annual termite inspection to make sure your home is termite free?

Our recommendation: Simple and straightforward - Unless you live in Tasmania where the risk is very LOW, you should be concerned about subterranean termites and have an ANNUAL termite inspection - at the very least! For more information give us a call on (07) 5520 7171.

We want to talk to you about ANTS!!

optimum pest control ants

Did you know ants are social insects which form colonies that range in size from a few dozen living in small cavities around the home, to highly organised colonies occupying large areas, and consist of MILLIONS of ants!


Ant communities/colonies are headed by a queen, or several queens, whose only function in life is to lay THOUSANDS of eggs that will hatch, and ensure the colony survives. The female Worker ants (the ones that come out and annoy US) forage for food and look after the 'kids'... they work in the nest and also have a host of other 'ant duties'. Male ants have only one role, mating with the queen. After they've done that they may die. Goodness!

Do you need help with Ants in your home or office? OPTIMUM can help!
