A general pest treatment carried out once a year (in spring) will keep homes free from most of the common pests.
Termites are active year round, so having an annual termite inspection is a must for any homeowner. Rather than having two separate visits, many customers arrange for their annual termite inspection to occur at the same time as their general pest treatment, to save money and time.
Cafes, pubs and other local businesses need to have a solid pest management program in place. Go Pest work with a number of business owners to ensure their premises are kept pest free and that the necessary documentation is up to date.
Despite relatively low humidity levels compared to other regions of Australia, termites are still active throughout the year in Woodend. They are very active during the warmer months and there is plenty of food to keep them happy!
Regular termite inspections are the only way to ensure that termites are not entering your property. The termite inspector will not only look for evidence of termite activity, but will also be able to advise on how to minimise the likelihood of termites gaining entry, for example by relocating a wood pile or fixing a leaky pipe.
The best way to safeguard against termite attack is to carry out a termite treatment. One option is to install a liquid barrier around the property using a soil-applied termiticide. Another option is to install termite baits, contained in secure bait stations.
For those building a new home or doing extensive renovations, it pays to consider installing a termite protection system at the same time. Our team at Go Pest will happily talk you through the options that best suit your property.
Without doubt, termites are the biggest threat to people’s homes. However, several other pests can pose a problem; some just a nuisance but others a health concern.
As the weather starts to warm up in spring, spiders will begin to appear. This is the ideal time for a general pest treatment, or “spider spray” as it’s often known. This treats spiders as well as their webs and hiding places, making the home safer for pets and family members.
European wasps can ruin outdoor spaces during the warmer months. Due to their aggressive behaviour they are best dealt with by professional pest managers, who are skilled at wasp nest removal by identifying the location of the nest and destroying it safely. At Go Pest we use professional products and pride ourselves on our safety protocols. We can also assist with bee swarm removal.
As the nights cool down in autumn, rodents enter buildings looking for somewhere warm to set up camp for the winter. Go Pest offer a number of rodent control solutions including baits, traps and monitoring devices. We know how to eliminate rodents and keep them out for good.
Woodend is a rural village at the heart of the Macedon Ranges about halfway between Melbourne and Bendigo.
Its most iconic landmark is Hanging Rock (Mount Diogenes) a six-million-year-old rock formation formed by an eruption of magma. The impressive pinnacles seen today have been sculpted by ice and wind over millions of years and have long been regarded as sacred by local indigenous people. The site was also made famous by the book and movie Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Despite its rural location Woodend is a modern village with popular hiking and mountain biking trails. It has vibrant cafes and trendy gastro pubs that rival those in the bigger cities. The region is also home to several wineries.
Being in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range means that Woodend sees its fair share of rainy days and snowfall is not uncommon in the winter.
