Pest Control in Brighton

Brighton is a coastal northern suburb of Brisbane, located 22.6 km north of the CBD. Together with its neighbour, Bald Hills, it is the northernmost suburbs of Brisbane.

The suburb had 9,479 residents as of 2016.

The suburb is home to two main attractions: Brighton Wetlands and Brighton Esplanade. Brighton Wetlands is a protected nature reserve consisting of three woods: Goodenia Woods, Pimelea Woods and Dianella Woods.

Brighton Esplanade is a parkland esplanade that follows the coast between the Houghton Highway bridge and Sandgate. It is an ideal place where walkers, cyclists and families can do various activities.

There are numerous parks in the suburb including Beaconsfield Terrace Park, Brighton Park, Decker Park and more.

Brighton remains largely undiscovered, consisting mostly of 1960’s cottages on 600-700 sq m blocks. It offers a peaceful country feel, with excellent schools, parks, lagoons, wetlands, and more easily accessible to local residents.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

The following are the pests that can potentially cause damage to property owners in Brighton.

Ant Control in Brighton

Ants are always in search of food that they will take back to their colony. This is why ants can be seen anywhere, whether it is the indoor compost bins, pet bowls, or beneath the refrigerators where bread crumbs or food scraps have been accidentally swept under.

Having ants in your home is not only annoying, but it can also add stress because of their potential to cause property damage and spoil food. The common ants that infest Brighton homes are Black Ants, Coastal Brown Ants, Funnel Ants, Green Ants, Meat Ants and Sugar Ants.

Using commercial insect spray may not be effective in the long term and you may find yourself dealing with ants again after a few days or weeks. The best thing to do is hire professional pest exterminators to handle your ant problem.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are deadliest insect on the planet, with more than 750 million people contracting a disease transmitted by mosquitoes, killing more than 1 million, every year. The mortality rate in Australia is lower because of the high health standards, but mosquitos remain the cause of some serious diseases for humans and pets.

A simple mosquito repellent or spray may not be enough to get rid of a mosquito infestation. These blood-sucking pests breeds fast and their population can increase significantly in a short amount of time. To handle your mosquito infestation, call your local pest exterminator.

Cockroach Control in Brighton

It is rare to see a cockroach during the daytime because they are nocturnal. But if you see one or two, chances are there are more of them hiding.

Cockroaches need to be dealt with immediately because they live communally, and a female can lay as many as 40 eggs at a time. Aside from the fact that they are dirty and hard to kill, cockroaches pose health risk as they can spread diseases to humans.

All is not hopeless, though. Cockroaches are killable and won’t be visiting your home anytime soon with the help of qualified pest control companies.

Termite Control in Brighton

Termites are a major problem in Queensland, with about 1 in 5 Australian homes causing $100 million in damages every year. These wood-feeding pests thrive in Brisbane’s warm, humid subtropical weather.

It takes less than 12 months for termites to cause damage to a home because they feed 24/7. This is one of the compelling reasons why preventive measures and immediate action is needed when it comes to termites.

Spider Control

Spiders are not the most dangerous insects in Australia, but they are so common that spiders are among the top concerns brought to pest control companies. Some of the species of spiders found in Brighton are Daddy Long Legs, Black House Spider, Brown House Spider, Redback Spider and Whitetail Spider.

A spider infestation should only be handled by professionals. They have the experience, tools and solutions to eradicate spiders in your home and keep them away.

Rodent Control in Brighton

A rodent infestation that is left untreated will cause significant damage to property. Their gnawing habit can damage personal belongings as well as household items, including cables and electric wirings. Rats and mice can also spread diseases, which makes it important to address the problem immediately.

Setting traps generally doesn’t fully address rodent infestation. Ask for professional help from a trusted pest control company for a safe, reliable and effective rodent control.

If you are building a new home, renovating or buying a home in Brighton, you will need to consider what termite prevention solutions are available. Our company offers all types of solutions including physical and chemical barriers as well as reticulation systems. You can reach us on


Brighton 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 Brighton is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Brighton 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 Brighton.

  • 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.
