Pest Infestations: Let Us Tell You About The Risks To Business

When you’re in the business of handling infestations of insects and other nuisances, you start to run into some remarkable stories.

Pest control in Sydney is often more complex than spraying spiders or getting rid of termites. However, it’s always equally vital for commercial and residential properties alike.

The safety of your clientele, the reputation of your business, and your legal security often hinge on the timely elimination of pests.

Here are a few of our more unusual stories that demonstrate the need for reliable, versatile, and resourceful pest control services. 

Bombardier Birds

Predator birds such as crows, ravens, and eagles will sometimes see rocks in rooftop gardens and mistake them for eggs. Instinct drives them to dive and grab the rocks before taking any closer inspection, but they quickly realise that they haven’t snatched a meal. As it happens, birds have no regard for people’s property and simply drop the rocks while flying.

We had one such call where this constantly occurred near a high-rise Sydney CBD building, and the rocks often struck people or parked cars. With the threat they posed to pedestrians and traffic, we were quick to install bird netting over these stones to keep the birds away from them. 

Slippery Situations

If slip hazards exist on your property, you may be liable for injuries people suffer after falling. We often find local businesses suffering this problem due to birds roosting on their roof and covering the sidewalks in faeces. Many of our clients have seen this problem growing out of control and ordered our help to solve it proactively, while others have called for our help after facing injury lawsuits. This is another issue that we solve via the timely installation of bird proofing to keep birds such as pigeons off of your buildings. 

Roaches in Not-So-Uncommon Places

A restaurant once called us out after the staff found an infestation of cockroaches and couldn’t figure out why. When we arrived we identified German Cockroaches breeding inside the skins of their freshly delivered box of onions and garlic. We removed the produce and carried out a cockroach treatment and ultimately saved the kitchen from becoming infested. We then went about seeing if the infestation had spread. Wherever we found a sign of cockroach infestation, we stamped them out and helped the restaurant avoid a public health and relations catastrophe.

Always thoroughly check produce being delivered for signs of pests before packing it away. Pests can be brought into your premises from your wholesalers.

I was looking for a solution to evict the dozen pigeons roosting under my solar panels, they were making a constant mess including building a massive nest. I came across Forensic Pest control via their website and found dealing with the team a real pleasure, the team was punctual and efficient. Right from the start dealing with Janelle kept me up to date and then to Chris and the team, they are really professional and take their business seriously. Highly recommended.
