Here in Gatton and in the wider Lockyer Valley, there has been a definite increase in call outs from our customers for fleas and redback spiders.
With the warmer weather coming on fast, these pests are on the rise, spreading quickly and causing problems across the area.
For redbacks, be sure to keep your eye out for their messy webs around your home, particularly in BBQ areas, on children’s play equipment, and around the edges of things such as bins. They love to hide out in these spots, often where unsuspecting fingers may find them.
While adult fatalities are rare, redback spider bites can be life threatening to children and pregnant women, so seek medical assistance immediately if bitten.
While fleas don’t possess the same potential for immediate injury as redback spiders do, they are a lot harder to spot, can cause problems by spreading diseases and they can be a lot more irritating when they bite! If you have a dog or a cat, the chances of suffering from a flea infestation in your place are much higher.
If you suspect you may have redback spiders, fleas, or any other pests around your home or business that are causing you concern, contact Amalgamated Pest Control Gatton and we can have one of our licenced and insured professional technicians take care of the problem for you.
