Bannockburn is a small suburb with a small population, but the threat of pests is still real. This is because the climate and its natural environment are naturally appealing to destructive pests.
Here are some pests that are common in Bannockburn:
Ants are unwanted guests because no one wants them infesting their homes. These insects are so common that according to studies, ants are present in almost every home regardless of its location. This is because their small size allows them to move easily in and out of homes and buildings. In addition, ants live in colonies, and these colonies can house thousands of ants.
Ant control is a challenging job. If you’re considering DIY methods, they are effective in the short-term. Each species of ants has its own weaknesses, and they can’t be eliminated using one method. But this ant control and treatment is a job that professional pest control experts can do and can do well.
Cockroaches are very common pests in residential and commercial buildings and can cause damage in a short amount of time. Out of the thousands of cockroach species, only 30 types can be seen in human habitat.
These types of cockroaches typically invade structures: American Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, German Cockroach, Smoky Brown Cockroach and Brown-banded Cockroach. Cockroaches are nocturnal but they leave signs of their presence.
Some of these signs include: smear marks in areas where they have crawled; droppings; shed skin; egg capsules; strange odour; and live cockroach. These signs can often be seen in the following places: trash cans, showers, under furniture, basement, drawers, cabinets, sink, toilets, etc.
Because they are so common, people tend to generally ignore the presence of cockroaches. But these bugs are carriers of pathogens that can cause various serious diseases. For this reason, a cockroach infestation must be taken seriously and addressed immediately, preferably with the assistance of professional pest control specialists.
Mosquitoes are another type of pest that is very common in Australia. They are not easy to eliminate because they are highly adaptable and can multiply very quickly.
These bugs are known for their syringe-like feature that they use for sucking the blood of humans and animals. Mosquitoes have a set of 47 teeth, which they cannot use while sucking blood.
Only female mosquitoes suck blood because they need it for reproduction. Meanwhile, the males live off the nectar from plants. Mosquitoes are annoying pests because they bite and their constant buzzing, which is produced when they flap their wings, which can reach about 500 times/second.
Mosquitoes are vectors serious diseases, hence the need to get rid of them and the constant vigilance in not letting them breed and lay their eggs in and around your property.

There are hundreds of species of rodents, but only a few can be considered as pests. These are the species that have learned to co-exist with humans and have become dependent on humans.
They end up infesting our homes for food, water and shelter, causing physical damage to property and health problems to humans. These rodents can be mice, rats, possums, etc.
The sharp canines of rats and mice can chew at objects around your home. In addition, if you’re unlucky to get bitten by a rat or mice, you need to be treated right away. Don’t forget that rat cause the Bubonic Plague, which killed millions of people in the past.
It’s not difficult to detect rodents at home. They leave evidence to let you know they are in your home. You will see droppings, smell urine in places where they have been, strange holes in the walls or pipelines, scampering noises in the roof or wall voids, etc.
Rodents are quick and agile, so they can run in any direction when they are discovered, and if they feel threatened, they will become aggressive and might to save themselves. With the danger and complexity involved in rodent control and treatment, hire professional pest control experts for assistance.
Silverfish are highly active at night that it makes their identification difficult. However, you can still detect their presence with these signs that they leave behind: cast skin and pepper-like droppings, unexplained holes in wallpapers, yellow stains in fabrics, books, wallpapers, etc., and live silverfish found in moist areas such as sinks and bathtubs.
Quick action is required when dealing with silverfish infestation. They reproduce quickly and are more difficult to eliminate than you imagine. When you allow the infestation to linger, the damage that silverfish can cause can only become much bigger and more expensive.
Silverfish infestations are not easy to detect and treat. It is highly recommended to hire pest control specialist for effective and safe treatment and solution.
Spiders may be small, but there are species that deliver a venomous bite. They can be deadly that it is best not to confront them or let your children or pets near them.
These eight-legged creatures with six eyes move quickly and can easily jump over 1.5 metres. There are thousands of species of spiders, but unfortunately some of the deadliest are found here at home.
This makes spider control a highly dangerous job and only an experienced professional can do. Some of the spiders that are found here are Huntsman, Black Widow, Funnel Web Spiders, etc.
There are things you can do to keep spiders away, including keeping your house clean, closing your windows, sealing any holes or gaps in your house; and keeping others bugs away. With regards to the last one, a house with plenty of other bugs will appeal to spiders, which prey on them.

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