Ascot is a residential suburb located about 6.5 km north-east of the Brisbane GPO.
There were 5,777 residents in Ascot based on the 2016 Census.
Bartleys Hill, which is 78 metres above sea level, is in the south-west of the suburb.
Ascot features grand Queensland homes. It is known for its beautiful grand homes, the picturesque Poinciana tree lined shopping precinct of Racecourse Road, and for Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses. More than a third of the suburb is occupied by Doomben and its related outer buildings.
Racecourse Road, which lies between Eagle Farm and the Brisbane River, hosts a variety of eateries, grocers and bars to serve both locals and visitors.
A large number of visitors flocks to Ascot during horse racing season.
When the season is over, Ascot remains a hive of activities, with the open spaces at the race courses being used as weekend markets, where people can buy fresh produce, all kinds of food, and arts and handicrafts.
Ascot is known as one of Brisbane’s most exclusive residential suburbs, with expensive properties. It is a family-friendly suburb with leafy streets and quiet parklands as well as plenty of playgrounds and good schools.
Ascot is one of the more affluent suburbs in the Brisbane, but it is not without risk of pest infestations. This is because of Australia climate and natural environment. Pest infestation can also occur due to human activities.
Here are some pests that can potentially cause damage to Ascot residences and businesses.
Cockroaches will enter a property with plenty of moisture, food and warmth to offer. Being highly adaptable pests, they can live in any environment. They feed on human food as well as organic materials such as glue, cardboard, dead cockroaches and dead animals.
They contaminate food and surfaces, which can be harmful by causing various diseases. Cockroaches are often found in bathrooms, kitchen cupboards and places where there are rubbish and food scraps.
Most spiders are harmless as they would usually try to avoid humans. They can be annoying because spider webs, which they spin to catch their prey, make homes look unkempt and unhygienic.
Spiders are a natural part of Australian life but they still need to be avoided and eliminated. There are species of spiders that deliver a venomous bite, which can turn serious if not given immediate proper medical attention.
They are prevalent during summer, and will usually be found in dry, isolated areas like garage doors and sheds.
Because of their small size, ants don’t have any particular way to get into your house. They can be found in places where food item is stored or is present like the kitchen, pantry, dining table, etc.
Aside from contaminating food, there are ant species that deliver a painful bite. The toxin from ant bites can cause severe allergic reactions to some people. Ants are very common. However, with more than 1300 species, treatment of ant infestation can be complex.

One in 3 homes in Brisbane is infested with termites. In Ascot, houses are also vulnerable to termite attack, especially those old, grand Queenslanders.
As termites are prevalent, a proactive approach to termite control is essential. Make sure your property has termite barriers around it. Regular termite inspections are also important to ensure these wood-eating pests are kept away from your property.
Silverfish are nocturnal, so it may take a while for homeowners to notice an infestation. They feed mostly on paper, book bindings, wallpaper, clothing, etc. The areas where they can usually be found are the basement, attic, kitchen, bathroom, pantry, storage boxes, and sheds.
They can grow their population in a short period of time, so it is better to catch a silverfish infestation in the early stage.
Rats and mice can usually be found in places such as trees, gardens, insulation, pipes, etc. One of the sure signs of their presence is scratching noises on the roof or wall void, especially at night. Like cockroaches, they forage for food in the rubbish, leftover food and storage areas.
Rodents are considered pests because their habit of gnawing damages property and their urine and faeces contaminate food. Accidentally consuming contaminated food can cause serious diseases.

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