Noises in the roof

July 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

As the temperature plummets, we naturally turn up the heat in our homes to escape the cold. Is it any wonder that some of our four legged friends also want to take advantage of our incessant need to stay warm and dry this winter, so they too decide to move into your roof voids and…

The terror in the roof

June 15, 2015 | 0 Comments

As our cities and towns ever increasingly expand to cope with growth in our population, we are gradually encroaching further on our natural environment. This encroachment is diminishing suitable nest sites for our indigenous and non-indigenous bird life, forcing them to seek out alternative breeding sites. In most cases this will be the newly built…

The March of the Millipede

As the name suggests, the Black Portuguese Millipede is a native of Portugal. It has been introduced from Portugal to several Atlantic islands as well as to South Africa and Australia.

We’ve all been there, sitting with family and friends, enjoying a nice relaxing afternoon BBQ only to have it interrupted by annoying European Wasps that seem to come out of nowhere.

It’s hard not to get caught up in the moment when you find your dream home. You’ve already moved in and can imagine the family BBQ’s, the parties with friends and after watching one to many series of The Block you’re already making plans to renovate this room or that, but it is at this…

The rise of the Rat

There’s no escaping that we live in a harsh environment from the searing heat waves through to the sustained periods of droughts followed by severe flooding. It’s is due to these extreme and quick shifts in our climate that has had a remarkable impact on the evolution of our indigenous and successful non-indigenous fauna making…

The Amazing Flea

January 8, 2015 | 0 Comments

Fleas are amazingly resourceful little insects, not only do they have the agility of a seasoned athlete, but in their pupal stages, they also possess the ability to slow and almost halt their growth and development if no food is present.

The vampire’s amongst us

December 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

Forget Twilight and The Vampire Dairies, Bed bugs are the true vampires living amongst us. This prehistoric little bug, about the size of an apple pip has been cohabiting and feeding on man since caveman days and has over time evolved a strategy of “hibernation” for surviving a periodically absent and nomadic host. Once bed…

Warm humid night, what’s that swarming under the light?

November 3, 2014 | 0 Comments

All the year’s hard work has been in preparation for this day, the colony is a hive of activity and everybody joins in the procession, as the young royal family, the “Alates”, the future kings and queens make their way through the colony to undertake the colonising flight. Each year this ritual plays out simultaneously…

Bird Management

As the urban sprawl continues to expand and encroach more on the natural environment, we are faced with the increased likelihood of more wildlife being forced to coexist in our urban landscape and this can in some instances cause them to become a pest.
