Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

A suburb like Bowen Hills with a thriving residential and commercial areas is vulnerable to pests, especially homes that are neglected by their owners. There are various effective ways to keep pests away, but one brief moment of letting your guard down can be taken advantage of by food-seeking pests.

Ant Control

Ants live in colonies, which can be found in wood, in the dirt, beneath pavers, wall cavities and roof voids. They can travel far in search of food and most of them will gather food to take back to their colony.

These pests are active all-year round, but there is profound activity during periods of high humidity. You will find ants crawling along in the kitchen area, bathroom, walls, near electrical devices, and anywhere where food and water are accessible.

There are many reasons why ants are considered as pests. They are unsightly and contaminate food. Some species of ants in Queensland deliver a painful bite, like the green ants and the bulldog ants.

To keep ants away, store food in tight containers and don’t leave food waste around the kitchen and dining areas.

Cockroach Control in Bowen Hills

Cockroaches are known as a disease spreader, carrying pathogens in their bodies. It is important to get rid of them immediately to stop them from breeding and invading your home.

They can contaminate food, utensil and surfaces with their shed skins, droppings, eggshells, dead cockroaches and vomit marks. If there are cockroaches nearby, you may smell a strange odour, which comes from their mouth and cuticle.

Cockroaches often live in places that support the growth of pathogens such as sewers, grease traps and sources of polluted water.

Spider Control

There are hundreds of types of spiders in Australia. Some are harmless and others are the opposite. The most common cockroach species are the Garden Wolf Spider, Redback Spider, White-tail Spider, and Huntsman Spider.

Some species prefer to stay in nature, while others love to just spin webs inside properties or the yard. Spiders are nocturnal insects, so they are up at night to search for food, which consists of other pests and other species of spiders.

Spiders tend to become more active when the weather turns cold, as they come out of their hiding places in search of a companion. The end of autumn is the end of the life cycle for some spiders. However, others go hibernate until spring.

Rodent Control in Bowen Hills

Rodents can cause great damage to homes and businesses, resulting in loss of products and possibility of health problems. Being omnivores, they will eat all sorts of food as well as household items. Their constantly growing incisors compel them to gnaw on things, including electrical wires, house frames, plaster boards, etc.

The most common species of rats and mice include House Mouse, Norway Rat and Roof Rat. Rats can establish their home in various area, including residential properties, commercial buildings, creeping plants or trees, burrows on the ground and any structure where food and water accessible.

Rodents are nocturnal. They are considered as pests once they manage to enter a property because they can contaminate food, which one way they can spread diseases to humans.

Termite Control in Bowen Hills

Most homeowners will not notice that their sanctuary is under attack by termites until their home is falling apart. Termites thrive throughout Australia because they love our warm and humid weather.

Termites are no ordinary insect as they are highly destructive that can destroy your property in a short span of time. This is because they feed on wood 24/7.

Homes in Australia, especially those in the high-risk zones for termites like Queensland, must have termite barriers in place and must be inspected at least once a year.

Bowen Hills Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

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

Because Bowen Hills 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 Bowen Hills.

  • A coastal environment like Wynnum is prone to termite and vermin attacks.

  • The number one thing that attracts termites is water or moisture. It is almost a guarantee that if a home has water leakage problems, it will soon be invaded by termites, if it hasn’t been already.

  • Damage to homes, whether made from weatherboard, is likely if termites, or white ants, are left unchecked.
