A suburb like Bulimba with thriving residential and commercial neighbourhoods cannot escape the threat of pests. The risk is much higher in Bulimba and other Brisbane suburbs because of its natural environment and climate, which are appealing to various pests such as mosquitoes, termites, and more.
Here are some of the pests that Bulimba residents need to watch out for:
The belief that if you have cockroaches in your home, your house is unhygienic. This is far from the truth. There are various ways that cockroaches can gain access to your home. If they weren’t already there when you first moved in, they most likely came in thru an open door or window.
Cockroaches, with their flat bodies, can wriggle through cracks, crevices, pipes and drains. They can also be carried from outdoors to indoors via furniture, boxes and shopping bags.
These pests are harmful to be around because they transmit diseases, causes food poisoning and trigger allergies. They carry almost 33 different types of bacteria, some of which can be harmful to children.
With cockroach infestations, the key is prevention. They are difficult to completely to eliminate once they have established sanctuary in your home. Cockroach problems should be handled by professional pest control specialists.
Termites are silent destroyers. Without you noticing, they can eat your home from inside out, necessitating thousands of dollars of repairs.
These wood-eating pests can build nests inside the wall cavity of your home, particularly if moisture is present. From their nests, they can go after your walls, beams, roofing timbers and other wooden parts of your home.
Seasoned pest control technicians are the only ones who can identify whether your home is infested with termites. With the potential damage that termites can do to homes, it is smart to have termite barriers installed around your house and regular termite inspections.
There are about 1400 species of ants known in Australia. Ants are beneficial to the environment in their natural habitat, acting as predators and scavengers, and helping in the recycling of nutrients in the soil.
However, they become a problem when they enter human habitat. The small mounds they call home are considered unappealing in the garden or lawn, on skirting boards, etc.
Knowing their nesting habits is important in effective control of ants. If you are dealing with an ant infestation, professional pest technicians will conduct a thorough survey and inspection to find their trails and discover where the ant nest is and treat the problem from the source.

Spiders in general don’t have a good image because there are people who are genuinely afraid of them, plus their appearance doesn’t help. Southeast Queensland is home to venomous spider, but there more species that are considered harmless.
Their behaviour, habits and appearance differ, depending on species. Some spin webs, others don’t. Some be seen scurrying across the floor and others might be high up in a corner of a room. There will be species that you will see hanging out in the gardens.
Spiders multiply fast that an infestation can occur in a short amount of time. In case of spider infestations, have your home checked by a qualified pest control specialist, who can conduct the safe removal of these eight-legged creatures.
Mosquitoes are notorious for ruining perfect summer days when you just want to enjoy the outdoors without their constant buzzing and biting. Beyond annoying, mosquitoes are dangerous because they carry different kinds of viruses that can cause serious illnesses.
To treat mosquitoes, professional pest technicians inspect standing water around your property since that is where they lay their eggs and where they develop. Draining these locations is already a big help in controlling mosquito population.
Fogging is used for adult mosquitoes. This method is done only by qualified professionals. Mosquitoes are common in the warm, humid weather of Queensland. Experts recommend that homeowners inspect and check their yard and garden regularly to make sure that not the smallest amount of water is lying around their property.
The buzz from a mosquito triggers annoyance. The buzz from wasps elicits alarm and panic because they sting – painfully. They can sting multiple times because unlike bees they don’t die at the first bite.
Wasps are important to nature because, like spiders, they are natural pest controllers. But it is not a good idea to have a wasp nest in the vicinity of your home because they can become aggressive when they feel threatened.
Aside from being painful and causing swelling and irritation, wasp bites can be fatal for some who develop allergic reactions from wasp venom.
If you sight a wasp nest, call for professional assistance to remove the nest.
Rats and mice are common in residential and commercial buildings, thanks to their extraordinary ability to move, reproduce and survive better than other pests. It is so easy for them to enter buildings because their tiny and agile bodies can squeeze through even the narrowest pipes and holes.
Like all animals, they need food, water and shelter to survive. However, rodents require little food to survive and can make do with virtually anything they can get their hands on.
Their gnawing habits can cause damage to property, and they contaminate the food and surfaces that they crawl on. Rats can become aggressive when provoked and bite to defend themselves. The bite from a rat is not pleasant and will require medical attention.

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