Rodents: The rodent family has a pair of continuously growing sharp incisors one each at the upper jaw and lower jaw. The rodents have to keep gnawing at things to wear off this pair of teeth else the growing tooth would pierce through its own skull. Be aware of the fact that they cause significant damage to the agricultural crops sometimes capable of wiping out the entire produce.

Spiders: Arachnophobia is a specific phobia related to the fear of spiders or webs or anything related to spiders. Spiders have been worshipped and stories have been spun around their web building capability and their patience in waiting for the prey to get trapped in the web. Only a few species of spiders bite humans and that too only for self defense.

Clothes Moth: The caterpillar feeds on natural cloth and when it becomes an adult moth, it doesn’t eat at all. It gets all the nutrition at the larval stage itself. Once it becomes an adult, all it does is to reproduce.

Cockroaches: They are members of the order Blattodea which is derived from the Latin word blatta, meaning ‘insects which shun light’. The latest is that they invade even the gaming consoles like the PS4 because they are attracted to dark warm places.

Anyways, it is always better to engage the services of the best pest control in Brisbane to keep the pests at bay.
