On the road with Kiki – Episode 46
Welcome back for another episode of On the Road with Kiki! In this series, we follow pest consultant Kristian as he assesses pest outbreaks in Adelaide homes and businesses.
The first job of the day is in St Peters, where the client believes that they have pesky possums in the roof. Another Allstate technician came out a few weeks ago and found some possum droppings and fur in the roof cavity. Kristian also spots multiple entry points, so he offers the client a quote to proof them off and install a one-way door to catch the possums.
The next client is after a termite assessment in the decking around the perimeter of their home. Kristian has a close look at the area of concern, and thinks that it’s actually wood rot, not termites, causing the damage. However, there is another spot where it looks like termites have established some mud tubes in the past. While it looks like previous termite activity, Kristian suggests a termite baiting system as a protective measure.
The last client of the day is having a bird issue. They seem to be getting inside the roof and nesting on the roof itself, but have thankfully left the solar panels alone for now. It looks like they’ve managed to pick at a roof tile to displace it to get inside. Kristian can also see that they’ve managed to chew through some boards and made nests between some pergola beams. He leaves the client with a quote to proof off the area, and that’s it for another day!
