For the majority of us we have been lucky to avoid these blood thirsty bugs. Unfortunately for some they have woken up in bed with bedbugs and the tell-tale signs of blood and bites on our bodies.
These pests can quickly infest hotels, motels, Airbnb's and other accommodation providers on the Gold Coast. Our homes are not safe either so these pests need to be treated immediately at the first sign of infestation.

Cockroaches are one of the oldest of all insects of our planet. There are four common cockroaches in the Gold Coast region that frequent our homes and work places.

Fleas are a type of wingless parasite found worldwide. They feed off the blood of humans and animals such as dogs and cats. Since fleas use a wide range of hosts, diseases can be transferred from one host to another. Fleas are known to transmit tapeworm larvae and, uncommonly, the disease murine typhus.
Adult fleas are up to about 3mm in length and usually brown in colour. We often see severe flea infestations when properties on the Gold Coast have been left unattended for long periods after the occupants move out or families with pets.

Paper wasps are Vespid wasps that gather fibres from dead wood and plant stems, which they mix with saliva, and use to construct water-resistant nests made of grey or brown papery material. Some types of paper wasps are also sometimes called umbrella wasps, due to the distinctive design of their nests. These wasps can be highly territorial and aggressive, giving their victim a series of painful stings.
