Belmont is an outer suburb of the City of Brisbane with 4,374 residents.
Located 11 km from the city, Belmont is bounded to the north by Wynnum Road and to the south by Old Cleveland Road. This excellent location allows residents to enjoy ease of driving and commuting because there is no traffic.
To the south of the suburb is Mount Petrie, which has an elevation of 169 metres above sea level.
Belmont is home to a number of parks, including Belmont Hills Bushland, Cassandra Crescent Park, Coventry Circuit Park, Dairy Swamp Road Park and Glenavon Street Park.
Most of the suburb is still undeveloped land of bush with large rural properties, but some areas feature residential estates. Most houses are contemporary, mostly not built more than 15 years ago. Thanks to a number of parks and cul de sacs, the neighbourhood enjoys peace and quiet.
Below are the pests that could potentially infest homes and commercial buildings in the suburb of Belmont.
Homeowners wouldn’t immediately notice termite damage in their property even though termites can feed on massive amounts of wood. These pests are generally found on the ground, cement cracks, foundations, walls, floors, attics and other wood structure around the home, even sofas and beds.
Termites have been proven to be more destructive than fire or flooding, causing thousands of dollars of repairs annually. To protect your home, regular inspections are a must, as well as a termite barrier around the property.
If you discover termites or termite nest, don’t disturb them. Call pest control experts to provide treatment and solution to your termite problem.
Rodents are dangerous because they are carriers of rabies and other diseases-causing bacteria. These pests are nocturnal to avoid detection by humans. However, they can be aggressive and attack if they are hungry or feel threatened.
You can usually find rats or mice or their nest in attics, basements and roof voids. They have a ravenous appetite and being omnivores, they will eat human and pet foods as well as plants.
Rodents are a major pest control issue because they spread diseases and contaminate food sources. They also cause damage to property because their gnawing habit compels them to chew on anything they come across.
They are smart and sociable, and with a short gestation period for females, a small family of mice or rats can quickly turn into a serious infestation in only a few weeks.
Some of the types of spiders that are common in Australia are: Funnel-web Spider, Black House Spider, Mouse Spider, Redback Spider, Brown Trapdoor Spider and White-tailed Spider.
These eight-legged creatures are usually found in small dark areas where there is light traffic, thus a slim chance of getting disturbed. Spiders start to become active as temperature begin to cool in autumn, as this is their time to search for a mate.
Most spiders are relatively harmless and can help control the other bugs in your home, but there are species that are venomous like the funnel web spider, redback spider and the white-tailed spider.

These pests are wingless and have flat bodies that taper towards the tail-end and are covered with silver-grey scales. Silverfish has three long, feeler-like appendages from the top of the abdomen and long, slender antennae.
Silverfish feed on starch in wallpaper, book bindings, laundered clothing, etc. They can be found hanging around walls that are wallpapered, dens and libraries, closets and storage areas.
Cockroaches have varied food sources and can be found in pantries, closets, basements and other dark, damp areas. These nocturnal pests can cause damage to fabrics, clothes, books and rugs.
Some of the common types of cockroaches found in Australia are: American Cockroach, Australian Cockroach, Brown-banded Cockroach, German Cockroach and Smokey Brown Cockroach.
The German Cockroach is the most common throughout Australia. It is nocturnal and a prolific breeder. German Cockroaches prefer the bathroom and kitchen, where there is plenty of water and food. They can also be found in or near the motors of refrigerators and beneath the stoves and hot water systems.
Another common species is the Australia Cockroach, which stays mostly outdoors but also known to enter homes and buildings. They prefer places like greenhouses and under the organic matters in gardens. Inside the house, they can be found in the subfloor and wall voids.
There are over 20 species of ants that invade homes. They prefer nesting on the ground, but they can build pathways leading to foundations, wall gaps, and cracks to ransack the kitchen areas and pantries.
The most prevalent species of ants in Australia are the Carpenter Ants (Sugar Ants). They come in several species with varying colour and size. Carpenter Ants are usually found in decayed wood, which they hollow out cleanly, which makes it different from the damage wrought by termites.
A couple of ants can become an infestation in a short period of time because of their collective mentality and complex chemical communication system. Ants can move thousands of other ants into home, turning a few ants into a massive infestation in just a few days.

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