Albion is an inner north-eastern residential suburb of Brisbane, located 5 km north of central Brisbane.
As of 2016, 2,296 people are living there.
It is bordered by Wooloowin in the north, Ascot in the east, Newstead in the south, and Windsor in the west. Its boundary in the south and south-west is defined by the Breakfast Creek, which is a neighbourhood within the west of Albion.
The suburb features a variety of housing styles, from former workers’ cottages to contemporary brick homes and unit blocks. It is also one of the Brisbane suburbs with plenty of heritage-listed sites.
Albion has one of Brisbane’s best cultural and café offerings. A lot of places are within walking distance. There are also plenty of options for public transport, schools and other conveniences.
Albion residents are under constant threat of any of the following pests. These pests are present in suburbs like Albion where the climate and natural habitat help promote their growth and development.
Ants can travel a long distance from their nest to a food source. They will take the food back to their nest to share with others. It is common to find them in roofs, which they use to access the other rooms of the home.
They can easily be discovered in your kitchen, bathroom, wall surfaces, near electrical devices, and anywhere where food and water are easily accessible. Ants are considered pests because they can contaminate food and some species that deliver a painful sting, like the fire ants, green ants and bulldog ants.
Ants are constantly looking for food and water. One way to get rid of them is to keep your food in tight containers and wipe kitchen surfaces with acidic cleaners because they hate it.
There are thousands of species of cockroaches but only a few have successfully exploited the homes of humans. Some species have evolved into excellent scavengers that allowed them to co-habit with people.
Cockroaches are harmful to be around because they can transmit diseases. Some people may develop allergic reactions upon contact with a cockroach. They contaminate food and kitchen utensils with their faeces, shed skins, empty egg cases and vomit marks on surfaces.
One of the obvious signs of a major cockroach infestation is when you smell a foul odour, which is produced from the secretions from their mouth and cuticle. The health threat posed by cockroaches is enough incentive to not ignore cockroach infestations and seek professional assistance to get rid of them.
Spiders are active at night as it is their time to hunt for food, which is primarily other insects and other spiders. They tend to be more active when the weather become colder, as they emerge from their hideout in search of a mate. The end of autumn sees the death of some species of spiders. Others go into hibernation until spring.
It’s not easy to spot spiders because they usually hide in dark, deserted areas of the house and garden. You might be dealing with a spider infestation if you see a high amount of spider webs or see spiders crawling around your space.

Rats and mice pose significant economic and health threats to people. These pests eat just about anything, from food to household items. They can be found in nesting in your home’s wall surface cavities, cupboards, boxes, furniture as well as the burrows in your garden.
Though they are mainly active at night, rats and mice leave evidence of their presence. Droppings, scrub marks on surfaces, strange noises in the roof or walls, and nests are signs that they have become your roommates.
When dealing with a rodent infestation, call a licensed pest exterminator to set the proper traps and other treatments for getting rid of rodents.
Having mosquitoes around you is uncomfortable and annoying because of the high-pitched noise they emit and their constant biting. A simple bite can be serious because mosquitoes are vectors of various diseases.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs on standing water that has accumulated on water bowls, water trays, bird baths, etc. Empty the water from these containers to deter mosquitoes from laying their eggs within your property.
Termites don’t pose a health risk to people, but the damage to property that they can cause can be extensive and expensive. Property owners cannot detect the presence of termites in the early stages of infestation. It becomes noticeable when the damage has become quite significant that it can no longer be ignored.
This is why for places like Queensland, where termite activity is high, termite barriers and regular termite inspections are a must. Homes and other structures are under constant threat from termites that preventive measures are required.

High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Albion is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Albion 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 Albion.
