Pest Control in Bribie Island

Bribie Island has an urban development at the southern end but most of the area is a national park with bushland and sandy white beaches. The continuous strip of suburban development stretches from Bongaree, at the south-western corner of the island, to Bellara and Banksia Beach.

Popular for its bushwalks, the National Park covers 5580 ha, which is equal to two-thirds of the island’s northern zone. It features beaches, a large coastal reserve, pine plantations and mangrove swamplands.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Bribie Island is close to the city but far enough to feel that you’re escaping the bustle of city life. The island pretty much has all the things you need, including a perfect summer weather almost all-year round, but residents still need to be on guard for various pests.

Termite Attacks on Bribie Island

Sadly, living on an island paradise doesn’t spare you from potential termite attacks. Because Bribie Island has groundwater, it has swampy and boggy areas that attract termites. It is also surrounded by forests as most of the island is a national park. Being an older suburb, developed in 1830, many of the homes and structures will be old and made from materials that are food for termites.

If your property has any of the following, moisture, mulch, gardens, landscaping timber, furniture, cardboard boxed, woodpiles, dead trees, stumps, bad drainage, etc., it will invite termite attacks. This makes practically any home a magnet for termites, so always be on the lookout for any signs of termites or other pests.

Cockroaches and other Pests

Cockroaches and other pests become more noticeable as winter approaches. In reality, however, these pests are present all-year round. We just see them more as the temperature drops as they try to look for a warmer place to call home.

Rodents in Bribie Island

Similar to other pests, rats and mice are more active during winter as they try to look for shelter from the cold. You’d know it’s time to call the pest experts if you see dropping or food being eaten in your pantry. There are home pest control methods for rat removal, but if the infestation is severe, call the professionals.

Wasp Infestation in Bribie Island

Wasps nesting, especially if you have a garden, can be a serious problem. These pests, mostly found in backyards, can harm humans and other insects and plants, especially fruit-bearing ones. Treating wasp infestation can only be done by a professional, so immediately seek their help if you see a wasp nest in around your home.

Midge Population in Bribie Island

The biting midge breed in the Moreton Bay Marine Park, particularly in mud/wet soils in the tidal zones. They are most active after a new or full moon. Following a warm spell, the biting midge problems intensifies.

The biting midge are not known to carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans, but they can become a nuisance to residents. The Council heads the management and control of midge, but residents are also encouraged to protect themselves and their homes from biting midge using a number of methods, including the use of insect repellents, avoiding the outdoors during dawn and dusk, treating standard flyscreens with UV stable insecticide surface spray, installing fine-mesh flyscreens on windows and doors, etc.

Mosquito Management in Bribie Island

The island is usually inundated by mosquitoes following significant rains and high tides. This is a major problem both indoors and outdoors The City Council undertakes regular mosquito management and mitigation programs to address the increase of mosquito activity, with the aim of targeting mosquito larvae before they develop into adults and become a problem in public places like parks, local reserves and sports facilities.

Bribie Island Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Moreton Bay area, where Bribie Island is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Bribie Island 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 Bribie Island.

  • 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.
