The most dreaded insect is probably the wasp. These terrifying creatures are capable of repeated stinging. Although a single wasp is generally peaceful, if you come by a swarm of hive, wasps can be more hostile and can attack in numbers.
If you find that wasps have established a hive on or near your property, you need to have them removed. This is not a task that can be done DIY. You will need to hire somebody with experience dealing with wasp hives.
Wasps, when provoked or threatened, easily become aggressive. Swarming wasps can cause extreme injury to people, especially if you have an allergic reaction to them (and many people do). They can also attack animals and pets, which is most often a fatal encounter.
If you have any questions, call a pest controller. They can tell you how to tell if there is a hive near you, what to do if a wasp stings you, and how to best remove a wasp hive.
A Taskforce pest controller will not only remove a wasp colony from your property, but will also wasp-proof your property to prevent an infestation re-occurring. Call Taskforce at any time of the day or week on 13TASK to speak to an Australian pest controller, wherever you need one.
The dreaded termite is on of the most destructive pests there is. Termites, as well all know, eat away at wood and make buildings unstable and unsafe. So how do you get rid of termites? How can you tell if there are termites in your home or office? How can you reverse the damage done by termites?
These are all important questions best addressed to a qualified pest controller. Every case of infestation is unique and requires the experience and know how of a seasoned pest controller. Depending on the extent of your infestation, the fix may be relatively cheap and quick, or may be more costly and thorough.
Pest controllers not only exterminate populations of pests, but also pest-proof your house to prevent re-infestation. Most pest controllers even offer year long guarantees that your house will not be infested by termites again.
At their worst, termites can ruin your building’s support. This makes it a dangerous place to live or work. It also means that the cost to fix the problem will be big – hiring a carpenter to cut out and replace, even rebuild part of your building is not a small thing. Invest in a pest controller instead and fix the problem before you need to do a major overhaul of your building.

Everybody knows how easy it can be to end up with ants. How many times has your mother told you ‘put that away or there’ll be ants!’
Your mother was right; ants are very easy to attract. Because they are so small they can find very small entry points into your house to send scouts to look for piles of accessible food. Often, you wake up to a trail of organized ants in your kitchen.
Getting rid of ants requires them to be removed, and their access points shut off. There are a wide range of different kinds of ants, some of which are more aggressive or unpleasant than others. All ants, no matter how harmless, are better off outside and separate from your domestic life.
Because ants are such a common problem, a lot of makeshift remedies are shared around. They are relatively easy to remove with soapy water and a disposable wipe. But if you find that ants are reoccurring, call a pest controller on 13TASK to be put in touch with a pest controller anywhere in Australia.

Possums are wonderful creatures from a distance, but they don’t make for great room mates. Their nocturnal behaviours can be very noisy. If you have a possum in your attic, you will know about it at night, when their movements and scratchings vibrate through the walls.

Most of us are afraid of spiders. We certainly don’t want them in the house or around our family and pets.
Whilst most spiders are harmless to you health, they aren’t welcome in the home or office. The problem with spiders is that there is a wide range of species, and each prefers and thrives in different environments. If you have a moist, dark basement, there may be certain spiders living there. But if you have a dry, bright space like a living room, there will be other species likely to live there too.
Some spiders are highly venomous or poisonous. To ensure the safety of you, your family and your pets, it’s a good idea to call a pest controller if you see spiders. A pest controller will remove existing spiders but also make an effort to minimise the risk of the spiders reentering the home or office.

Fleas are more unpleasant than you might first think, and can come into the home more secretly than expected. Fleas live on animals and drink their blood. Pets are often likely to get them, but rodents may also have fleas that they can bring into your home.
We’re not going to get rid of our cats and dogs – we love them! They don’t want to have fleas any more than we do and we certainly don’t want them to pass them on to the rest of the family. Not only are fleas unpleasant, they are also unhealthy and may be passed on to others.
A major problem with fleas is that they may spread their eggs and larvae around the house. Removing a flea infestation requires very thorough treatment – they need to be removed from hair and bodies, removed from furniture and the home environment, and they need to be killed themselves. It is then necessary to arrange your house to defend against flea infiltration.
A good pest controller will take care of all of these things. Taskforce has pest controllers in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra – all of Australia’s major cities and all smaller towns too!
