Pest Control in Birkdale

The coastal location and climate in Birkdale make properties in the suburb vulnerable to pest attacks.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Termites

We know termites thrive in moist environment, and a coastal suburb like Birkdale is vulnerable to termite attacks if residential and commercial property owners are not proactive when it comes to potential infestation.

While Birkdale is very appealing due to its coast and beaches, termites can be a major problem.

The most destructive species of termites that can be found in the area are:

  • Schedorhinotermes intermedius
    (subterranean termite)
  • Mastotermes darwiniensis
    (giant northern termite, Darwin termite)
  • Coptotermes lacteus
    (subterranean termite, milk termite, mould-building termite)
  • Nasutitermes walker
    (arboreal termite, tree termite)
  • Nasutitermes exitiosus
    (subterranean termite)
  • Dampwood termites
  • Drywood termites

Rats and Mice

Residents of Birkdale are required to control and manage rats and mice that are not native to the area.

The following are introduced rodents that are common to urban areas:

  • The Norway Rat (Brown or Sewer Rat)
  • The Roof Rat (Black Rat)
  • The House Mouse

Rats and mice are a constant pest, regardless of the season. Their numbers inside homes can significantly increase following floods or heavy rains and at the beginning of colder weather.

Rats and mice are also prolific breeders, with female rats having up to 3 litter per year (average litter size of 5-8 young).

As soon as you notice a sign of pest infestation, you have to have your home treated to stop the breeding cycle.

Spiders

There are tens of thousands of species of spiders across Australia. Contrary to their bad reputation, spiders generally pose no threat and in fact, are responsible for lowering the overall number of insects/pests on the continent.

Having said that, 10 spider species that are considered the most venomous are found in Australia.

  • Sydney funnel-web spiders
  • Other funnel-web spiders
  • Redback spiders
  • Mouse spiders
  • Trap door spiders
  • White-tailed spiders
  • Australian tarantulas
  • Recluse spiders
  • Huntsman spiders
  • Common garden orb weaver spiders

Although spiders are less life-threatening than snakes, sharks or even bees, the potential danger they pose to health cannot be disregarded, and thus it is ideal to keep their presence under control.

Birkdale Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Redlands area, where Birkdale is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Birkdale is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.

The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Birkdale.

  • A coastal environment like Wynnum is prone to termite and vermin attacks.

  • The number one thing that attracts termites is water or moisture. It is almost a guarantee that if a home has water leakage problems, it will soon be invaded by termites, if it hasn’t been already.

  • Damage to homes, whether made from weatherboard, is likely if termites, or white ants, are left unchecked.
