Common Christmas Time Pests in Brisbane: What to Look Out For

Christmas Pest Control Brisbane

As the festive season approaches in Brisbane, it’s not just the jolly man in red that might be sneaking into your home. Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control is here to highlight common Christmas time pests and how to identify if they’ve taken up residence in your home! Let’s get started.

1. Rodents: Unwanted Guests for the Holidays

Rodents, including rats and mice, are not just a nuisance but a health hazard too. They are known for inhabiting dirty places, bringing filth and various insects into your home. They’re notorious for their love of your food and drinks, so be careful of leaving out excess food scraps.

Signs of Rodent Infestation: Look for droppings that clump together, typically near walls and skirting boards. Gnawed holes in furniture, exposed electrical lines, and nests in secluded places like roof spaces or garages are telltale signs. Don’t forget to check for chewed food packages too​​​​. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to contact Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control.

2. Cockroaches: The Resilient Invaders

Cockroaches are another common pest in Brisbane, known for spreading disease. Cockroaches invade your home looking for food, water and shelter. And at Christmas time, we often leave out food scraps that are the perfect attraction for cockroaches.

Signs of Cockroach Infestation: The most obvious sign is spotting a cockroach itself, especially at night or in dark, quiet areas of your home. Cockroach droppings resemble tiny peppercorns or coffee grinds, usually found in dark, secluded places. A musty, oily, or earthy smell indicates a significant infestation, as does the presence of the egg casings of cockroaches, which are small, hollow, brown, ribbed casings​​​​. Seeing any of these signs means it’s time to act fast and contact the pest control team at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control.
