Ways Pest Control Protects You and Your Sunshine Coast Home

Pest control on the Sunshine Coast might not be something you think about too often but having a pest problem can be a big deal so it makes sense to know what you should do about it.

Pest faeces, structural damage to your home, strange smells or sounds and eggs or larva of such pests are all signs that you have an issue.

Letting this problem go is never recommended as it can cause problems for your health and your home. That’s why you need Suncoast Termite and Pest to help protect your house and your family.


Structural Damage


One of the biggest ways that pest control can protect your house is by preventing structural damage.

Termites are the biggest concern and can make your home unsafe and unstable if they are left too long.

We can help you determine if you have termites and if you do, we can help eliminate them to keep you safe. 


Respiratory Illnesses


Another risk posed by pests are respiratory illnesses, such as asthma and allergies.

Having pests can exacerbate these issues and increase the risk of symptoms.

Certain pests pose a greater risk of these issues and that includes cockroaches and dust mites.

We can help get rid of both of these kinds of insects, which should help alleviate your symptoms. 




In addition to respiratory problems, many pests carry the risk of passing on dangerous diseases.

This is true for mice, rats, cockroaches, ticks, and mosquitos. For example, mosquitoes carry dengue fever, encephalitis, and the West Nile virus.

You can get Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain fever from ticks and you can get the hantavirus from mice.

Ants, fleas, and flies also carry the potential to pass on dangerous diseases that can make you or your family sick. 


Sanitation and Food Contamination


Another issue you face with pest problems is sanitation concerns.

Many leave behind faeces or body parts that can affect the air quality of your house.

If pests get into your food supply, it is contaminated and you need to throw it away to prevent you or family from getting sick.

By letting us help you figure out what kind of pests you have, we can get rid of them for you and get your house and your family back to a safe and healthy environment.
