An infestation in your home can be a major problem. You may not have a full-blown infestation per se, but if you see any pests around, you might be expecting to see more. Pests can carry harmful diseases and bacteria that can bring health risks into the safety of your home. Here are some pests to look out for and why you should look out for them:


These insects may seem harmless and nothing more than annoying, but they also often come with serious health risks. Mosquitoes can carry and transmit viruses with a single bite. The viruses they can carry include Zika, West Nile, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, which can cause some serious illnesses and even death. Be sure to try to find a way to repel these pests, or we can do it for you.


Cockroaches are always a concern. If you see one, you know there are others nearby. They can come with serious health risks and multiply extremely quickly. They are skin-shedders, and they will leave behind droppings as well as urine, which can immediately become airborne allergens. These allergens can dangerously affect those with asthma, as well as the elderly or younger children, who are more at risk with weaker immune systems. Cockroaches are also just unhygienic, they live in the dirtiest places like vents, drains, sewers, and pipes. These insects bring quite a bit of disgusting bacteria from the streets into your home. It is extremely important that you keep your home clean and make sure it is treated for cockroaches. Also, make sure to deep clean the surfaces of your home frequently.

Bed Bugs

Although bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases to humans, they will still come with some serious side effects. Bed bug bites can flare up allergic reactions in some, even causing infected wounds. Infestations of bed bugs can also bring insomnia, depression, stress, and other psychological issues that come with dealing with this sort of situation. It is crucial to deal with this issue as soon as you first see signs of bed bugs.


Mice move quickly and will scour for food any and everywhere as if it is their main mission in life. These furry creatures will carry not only dirt but infection as well. Mice will urinate as they scour for food, contaminating your home and probably even the places where you eat. The best way to keep mice out is to seal small cracks and other spaces where they might be able to enter securely. All Guard Pest Control is extremely efficient in identifying points of entry and ensuring proper rodent control across Melbourne.


Rats are similar to mice. They will leave fecal matter and urine as well as harmful bacteria as they scour your home for food. They will urinate and excrete onto anything, which will cause airborne allergens that are much more aggressive. They are larger, so their waste may be much more harmful. Do not attempt to remove rats on your own as they are hostile by nature and a bite may be very dangerous to you.
