Pests associated with human habits such as ants and cockroaches and natural environment such as termites are a problem for residents and business owners.
Despite their small size, ants can still be harmful, both in terms of health and property. They damage property and contaminate food, the latter of which can have health repercussions.
Ants build their homes insider the crevices of wall, which can result in further damage to the structure of a property. If allowed to go untreated for a long time, it can have negative impact on the building, structural and value wise.
Some of the common ant species in Aspley include the imported Red Fire Ants, Yellow-coloured Crazy Ants, Funnel Ants, Meat Ants, Sugar Ants and Greenhead Ants. These insects are social. This means if a few ants gain access to a property, others will surely follow.
To prevent an ant infestation, keep them away from food and shelter. Keep your food in tightly sealed containers and make sure to keep your food preparation, cooking and dining areas clean. Cover the cracks and gaps in your home as well as fix leaking taps and joints.
One of the most common pests in Aspley, cockroaches are harmful because they live an unsanitary lifestyle. A single cockroach that you see is a serious concern already because there are more that are hidden.
The most common cockroaches in Aspley are the American Cockroaches, German Cockroaches, Brown Banded Cockroaches and Oriental Cockroaches.
To prevent a cockroach infestation at home, eliminate their food source by keeping your food preparation are always clean, not leaving leftover foods just lying around and storing food in airtight containers. Check your sewage and drainage pipes for leaks, as these are the places that allow cockroaches to survive.
Cockroaches can survive even in the harshest of conditions. This is the reason why you won’t be able to get rid of an infestation with just a normal cleaning of the house. You need the expertise of professional pest exterminators for effective control and treatment.

Silverfish don’t pose any health risk to humans, but they can be annoying and destructive. These quick-moving, night-time insects can ruin your carpets, books, wallpapers and other items containing starch.
There are different reasons why silverfish infestation occurs. One, buildup of dampness in your home. Moisture attracts silverfish and will provide them the ideal setting to breed and reproduce.
Second, food source in your home. Silverfish love papers, books, cardboard boxes, etc. They hide inside the pages of books while they feed on them. This make them nearly invisible and undetectable for a long while.
These fish-like insects are usually found in any dark places such as the attic, basement, pantry, closed shelves, wardrobes, and other places with food sources and high humidity.
Termites are prevalent throughout Australia. The damage they can inflict on a property is greater than the damage from fires, foods and other natural disasters.
How prevalent termites depends on a number of factors: how old your suburb is; the type of shrubs that were cleared to give way to developments; ineffective termite termites; if your property is near shrublands, and the type and style of building.
Both the dampwood and drywood species of termites are common in Aspley. The most effective ways to keep these pests away is by denying them their food source, which include wood, old, dry logs, etc.
Make sure any breaks or gaps in your home that termite can use as entry points are sealed. Finally, protect your home with termite barriers and a regular inspection annually.
Mice and rat are both rodents and are capable of great destruction in properties. However, rats and mice differ in habitat, appearance and habits. The most common types of rodents found in Aspley are Norway Rat, House Mouse and Roof Rat.
There are many obvious signs of rodent infestation. Rat or mice sighting inside your property; noise from the attic, roof, ceilings or wall voids, especially at night; signs of gnawing on wooden or plastic materials; seeing rodent droppings or smelling a strange odour, which is rodent urine; and more.
Rodent infestation should be addressed immediately because they can cause serious damage to property, not to mention the health risk they pose to occupants of the property. They can damage plasterboard, wall papers, and make holes in wooden floorboards.

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