Melbourne has been inundated by bugs, rodents and spiders – 3AW


Melbourne is in the middle of a plague.

Pest control companies have been flooded with calls as the temperature warmed up this week.

The Leader reports that some pest controllers have four-week waiting lists due to increasing demand.

According to Alex Kristic of Kritter Getters Pest Control, demand has skyrocketed.

“We’re very busy right now,” he told Neil Mitchell.

“It was a very unusual season.

“We get a lot of rodent work, a lot of insect work, lots and lots of spiders, birds, snakes.”

Mr Kristic says he thinks the weather is behind the plague.

“I think the unusual weather we’re getting … probably contributes to that,” he said.
