Pests To Look Out For in the Australian Summer

Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control | Pests To Look Out For in the Australian Summer

Today is the first day of the Australian summer. Unfortunately, summer doesn’t just bring beautiful weather and sunny beach days to us, but also a LOT of pests. Summertime is the most active period of the year for pests in Australia. This is because as the weather heats up it becomes ideal for pests to find food and reproduce, which means you are going to come into contact with them a lot more than in the wintertime.

In this article the team at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control are breaking down the summer pests you need to look out for, plus what you can do to prevent and avoid them. Let’s get started!



You probably already knew these guys would be on the list! During the warmer summer months snakes become much more active. Contrary to popular belief, most snakes don’t actually live out in the bush. They love to hang around your home and garden where there is safe shelter and an abundance of food. When the weather gets warmer these slippery fellas like to move around looking for food and other great places to live. The Brisbane area has twenty-seven species of land snake. The Eastern Brown Snake (Common Brown Snake) is the world’s 2nd most venomous land snake and is regularly found in the suburbs of South-East Queensland. If you are experiencing a snake problem don’t risk it! Contact Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control. We offer professional snake removal services in Brisbane. Our licensed snake-catchers are highly skilled professionals with many years of experience who are on-call for every snake emergency, 24/7.

During summer possums are always on the lookout for a better shelter and food source where they can build their nest. Unfortunately for Brisbane residents, this is usually in attics or other cozy, warm places in our homes. Living with possums in your roof can be frustrating. These out of control critters have been known to chew through electrical wire and timber, causing great expense, while their droppings and urine can present a health risk. Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control are your local possum specialists. Our service area includes all of Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. We have over two decades of experience removing and relocating these cute but persistent marsupials.
