Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Different types of pests thrive in Alderley, helped by its natural environment and sub-tropical climate. Here are some of the pests that may be problematic for property owners in Alderley.

Ant Control

Ants are not known to cause structural damage to houses and buildings, but they can contaminate our food. This is because they search for food in filthy places like garbage bins. If you see ants inside or outside your home, don’t ignore it. It might be a sign of a larger infestation somewhere around your place.

With so many species of ants, you might not be able to identify the right species that are causing you problems. Each specie is different and would require a different treatment approach. Call an experienced pest control technician to identify the ants and treat the problem.

Cockroach Control in Alderley

Cockroaches are likely to come out of there hiding places at night. This is the time they search for food, which could be the leftover food on your table or the used dishes that were left on your kitchen sink. They are generally found in damp and dark areas of a home, including bathrooms, kitchens, basements, etc.

Aside from human food, cockroaches are also known to feed on soaps, books, glue and other deposit matter. Cockroaches should not be allowed to crawl freely around your home because they are dirty and carriers of bacteria and viruses that cause serious diseases.

The fastest and most effective way to get rid of cockroaches is to seek assistance from pest experts as soon as possible.

Rodent Control in Alderley

Because rodents like to hang out in dirty places, bacteria cling to their bodies. These bacteria get spread to your home if rodents succeed in getting in. Rodents can contaminate food, which is harmful if unknowingly consumed by humans.

Rodents also present economic risks because of their constant need to gnaw. They will gnaw at anything these, including personal belongings and even electrical cables. Rodents can damage personal stuff, which you can never get back, and worst they can cause house fires caused by damaged electrical cables.

It is important to stop rodent infestation immediately. Call a qualified pest exterminator to get rid of the rats or rodents in your home.

Alderley Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

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

Because Alderley 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 Alderley.

  • 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.
