PEST STATUS

Booklice are seldom more than a nuisance, however may under dark, undisturbed and humid conditions grow to large numbers and then become visible on surfaces such as tables or inside cupboards. Whilst pest controllers can provide temporary relief by treating surfaces and spaces for these insects, their presence is usually as a result of a lack of proper ventilation and too high humidity.

CONTROL

The appearance of booklice is usually an indication of poor storage conditions. Non-chemical measures that you can employ to reduce your booklice population include improving aeration and ventilation, placing infested items in sunlight and cleaning surfaces more frequently to minimise mould and fungi growth.

In extreme situations your professional pest controller can help to reduce numbers by employing surface sprays and “space treatments” (gassing).

Ninja recommends that you engage a professional pest controller who has had experience dealing with this despised pest. Do-it-yourself efforts are likely not to succeed unfortunately.

Please consider carefully before attempting your own pest control. Remember……

BE SAFE & SURE, CALL A NINJA!
