Termites and vermin

Termites

Residents should take precautions against possible infestation of termites in their homes, whether they be weatherboard or brick.  Termites (white ants) left unchecked can cause extensive damage to buildings.

It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure their property is protected. Annual inspections and regular treatment by a licensed pest control company is recommended.

If residents want to report termites on Council land, contact Council.

Vermin

Rats and mice are well adapted to living in close association with humans.  Their presence is undesirable due to their ability to physically damage structures and furnishings, spoil and contaminate food and transmit disease.

It is the property owner’s responsibility to treat rodent problems on their property.  Seek the advice of a commercial Pest Management Technician.

If residents want to report a rodent problem on / or in Council land or facility, contact Council.
