Insects and Bugs on Private Property
If the insects or bugs are on private property it is the owners/occupiers responsibility to remove or eradicate the pest or insects. The services of a private pest controller may be sought to assist in the removal of these species.
To help control insects and bugs we suggest you:
- arrange for a pest controller to regularly apply surface treatments to all entry points and windows
- ensure you have fly screens and make sure they are well maintained
- ensure external doors and windows are well sealed.
