Belivah, a suburb in Logan City, is located about 36 km from Brisbane. It covers an area of 3.348 sq km.
It is a small town with a population of just 317 residents as of 2016.
The Beaudesert-Beenleigh Road passes through most of the eastern border.
Belivah is a community surrounded by green spaces and close to amenities such as schools, public transportation, and jobs.
Most homes in Belivah are separate houses and most of the suburb is Environmental Management and Conservation (43.03%), Rural Residential (34.25%) and Emerging Community (15.81%).
Belivah is a small suburb with few residents, but pests are still a threat. The environment and the beautiful subtropical climate of the Australia allow different insects to thrive. This is good for the environment and biodiversity, but becomes a problem once pests start to invade homes and buildings in search of nourishment and shelter.
There are over 10,000 species of species of ants worldwide. Ants that live in their natural habitat play a significant role in nature. But those who infest residential and commercial buildings can cause problems.
Only about 25 species infest the homes and their life span varies from a few weeks to several years. The common types of ants that cause problems in Belivah are Black/Carpenter Ants, Fire Ants and Brown Ants.
Once worker ants have found a promising food source, they will communicate it with others and leave a chemical trail directing them the location. The ants in one line that we see is that chemical trail in action. If you find an ant trail what you can do is vacuum it and wipe it down with soapy water or vinegar to remove the trail.
Ant infestation should be treated because they cause food spoilage, appliance and electric equipment damage, roof and wall damage, and they can cause painful and itchy bites. You store food properly to prevent an ant infestation.
Cockroach must be avoided, and a cockroach infestation must be treated because these bugs can spread diseases by simply crawling on your food, kitchen appliances or stored food. They can also cause asthma and allergic reactions, and leave droppings and strong odours, which can make a room dirty and unhygienic.
They are also notorious for damaging properties. For example, they can contaminate dishwashers or damage the motor of refrigerators. German cockroaches, in particular, are quite destructive and are the species that often invades properties. These cockroaches spoil clothing, carpets, linens and upholstery.
Cockroaches are hardy and difficult to kill once they get into your home. They can multiply quickly into hundreds or thousands of baby cockroaches. It is best to seek professional assistance from pest control experts when faced with a cockroach infestation.
Mosquitos are everywhere in Belivah. They are one of the most dangerous insects in the world. In fact, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year. Aside from causing itchiness and irritation, a mosquito bite can transmit diseases. They cause malaria, Zyka virus, Ross River fever, Yellow fever, and dengue.
Getting rid of mosquitoes and their eggs is a challenge. Their eggs can survive years without hatching. This make mosquito a major health hazard that needs to be dealt with by professional pest control experts.
These wingless insects are responsible for the unexplained holes in your clothes, books and other personal belongings. Silverfish feed on anything with starch in them, including grains, sugar, books, clothes, etc.
Silverfish are active at night, and they hide their activity from humans. It gets more difficult to get rid of them when they have easy access to sufficient food sources.
Because they move fast, they are hard to catch. This makes getting rid of silverfish a challenge. If you see silverfish in your home, act fast. The more time you ignore them, the harder it becomes to eliminate them.

Spiders are another type of pest that are quite common in Belivah. Today, they can be found in both rural and urban areas. While some species are harmless and don’t bite, others can be quite lethal.
These bugs normally stay away from humans and will only bite when they feel threatened. If you get bitten by a spider, make sure to get immediate medical attention.
If you have a spider infestation, call your local pest controller for help. They will be able to identify the species of spider in your home and recommended the right solution and treatment.
Another common pest in Australia are termites. They can cause millions of dollars of property damage every year.
Termites are silent destroyers. You will not be able to find out if they are already in your home until termite damage becomes noticeable. It doesn’t matter if you have termites now or not. Sooner or later, termites will reach your home if they are currently active within a 5 km radius of your property.
If detected early enough, the extent of termite damage is significantly reduced. This is why it is important to have regular termite inspections done on you home. Termite infestation is best handled by termite specialists.
Wasps can become a problem in homes and buildings. They are common in Belivah in both residential and industrial areas. Like bees, they don’t attack unless their nest is threatened.
These bugs are carnivores that feed on ants, caterpillars, bees, spiders, etc. They also love sugary foods and will feed on sodas, candies, ripe fruits, etc.
Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times and do not lose their stinger and die after a bite. Wasps are very common in Logan, particularly European wasps, Native paper, Asian paper, Sand wasps, tree-brown paper, and mud-nesting wasps.
Rats and mice are a major concern in residential and commercial structures in Belivah as they can cause major physical and economic harm. Rodents produce quickly, making it hard to control their population. They also produce as many as 50 droppings every day.
These pests can enter your home and destroy your things such as clothes, papers, books, etc. Rodents also go after electric systems and appliances. Rodents also carry bacteria that can transmit life-threatening diseases to humans.
A rodent infestation must be addressed immediately because they can lead to more infestation problems. Rats and mice carry lice, ticks and fleas, which also carry disease-causing bacteria.

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