Banyo is a northern suburb in Brisbane, with a population of 5,868 people.
It is a suburb that has both residential and industrial areas.
Banyo and its next-door neighbour, Nudgee, share many things, including a colourful history.
Thanks to its proximity to Brisbane Airport and the nearby Port of Brisbane, several business and industrial parks have been developed to accommodate new employers. Nudgee Road is increasingly transforming into a commercial centre, thanks to its link to the Gateway Motorway.
Its commercial centre, situated around the Banyo railway station, has undergone improvement as part of the Brisbane City Council Suburban Community Improvement Project.
The newest residential estates to rise in Banyo include the “Couture,” located on the site of a former Army depot adjacent to the Golden Circle cannery located in neighbouring Northgate, and “Summerlin,” built on an old Hills Hoist factory.
There are varieties of homes in Banyo, including houses in charming timber designs with big yards. The suburb is peaceful and quiet as apartment building development is banned under zoning laws.
With the Boondall wetlands, the presence of an industrial district and its warm, humid climate, Banyo offers plenty of areas for pests to live, breed and multiply. Here are some of the pests that can become a problem in Banyo.
These tough and resilient pests are drawn to the unclean areas of a home. However, this is not to say that clean spaces are safe from cockroaches. They prefer dark, humid and warm areas, especially those that close to a food source.
Apart from seeing live cockroaches, coffee bean-like egg cases, pepper-like droppings, or strange odour are sure signs of a cockroach problem. Treat the problem immediately because cockroaches pose a health risk with their ability to transmit certain diseases to humans.
Australia is under constant threat from termites. With timber frames so common in Australian homes, as many as one in three homes can be attacked by termites at any time.
This proves the importance of termite control for both residential and commercial properties. It becomes even more important as home insurance doesn’t cover termite damage.
Detecting termites presents a challenge because termites live, feed and reproduce underground. Their presence is often only noticed when extensive damage has been done to a property. The best way to know if you have termites is to look for signs because it is very for termites to be seen outside.

Ants love warm climate, which makes Queensland perfect for them. Ants enter homes in search of food and water, so it is common to see them in the kitchen, pantry, bathroom, etc.
Out of about 15,000 species of ants around the world, only 1,300 can be found in Australia. The common ant varieties in Southeast Queensland include Black House Ant, Carpenter Ant, Argentine Ant, Bull Ant, Fire Ant and White Ant.
Spiders pose several problems for homeowners. They can lay eggs at an alarming rate that there is a high possibility of your premises of being overrun by these pests in no time. Some species of spiders are venomous. The bite can lead to severe allergic reactions in some peoples, so immediate medical attention is needed.
The presence of spiders in your home should not be ignored. Spiders feed on other insects, so their presence may mean you have an infestation from another type of pest that you are not aware of.
Most species of spiders in Queensland are harmless, but there are a few that are a cause of concern: Funnel Web, Redback and Trapdoor Spiders.
Silverfish are usually found in the moist and humid areas of the home such as basement, attics and even your closets. They are hard to eliminate because they tend to hide from humans and they are quick to move.
Though silverfish don’t pose a health risk, they are a danger to personal belongings as they feed on clothing, books, paper, etc. they can also invade your kitchen pantries and contaminate the food in there.
Native Australian rodents are a protected species and pose very little threat to health. However, introduced rodents are a major problem, particularly Roof Rats, Norway Rats and House Rats.
These species can transmit diseases such as typhus fever and contaminate food, which can lead to food poisoning if accidentally eaten. In addition, rodents carry ticks or fleas, so they would be transporting these pests to your house as well.

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