Common Summer Pests To Watch Out For

Common Summer Pests

Although pests are common throughout all times of the year, particularly in South East Queensland, there are a number of pests that become more active in the warmer times of the year. At Pesky Possum Pest & Bird Control we have decades of experience in humane and effective pest control. In this latest blog from the team at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control, we will be sharing a few of the common summer pests you should look out for.


Ants are common at all times of the year, but particularly in summer. The best way to avoid a summer invasion of ants to keep your home free of food scraps and crumbs. One of the most common reasons an ant will invade your home is if it provides a regular source of food. Not providing that is a great way to keep your home ant-free.


Possums are known to love making nests in our attics and in other places in our homes. Do you have a pesky possum that has a taken up residence in your home? Contact the possum removal experts at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control. We provide a humane and professional possum removal service to residents of South East Queensland, including the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, and Brisbane. Find out more about our possum removal service on our website here.


Cockroaches are another common summer pest. Just like ants, cockroaches invade your home for food in most cases. This makes them a big fan of leftover crumbs and food scraps from your summer BBQs! Be sure to keep your home clear of excess food scraps to deter cockroaches from entering your home this summer.
