Pest Control in Carseldine

Carseldine is a suburb in Brisbane, with 9,541 residents. It is located about 16 km north (about a half-hour drive) from the CBD.

This residential suburb is bounded by the suburbs of Aspley, Bridgeman Downs, Bald Hills, Bracken Ridge and Fitzgibbon.

Carseldine is roughly 5 sq km and is home to 13 parks, covering almost 3.6% of the total area.

Most of the properties are free-standing houses, including brick and tile single- and double-storey homes constructed in the 1980s and 1990s. The northern section of the suburb consists of newer homes built in the 2000s.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Here are some of the pests that may present problems to property owners in Carseldine.

Termite Control in Carseldine

Termites are a serious problem in Queensland, with 1 in 5 homes affected by these wood-feeding pests annually and causing around $100 million in damages. Our warm, humid subtropical climate allows them to thrive.

They can cause major damage in properties in less than 12 months because termites feed non-stop. Because termites are a constant threat to Australian homes, termite inspection, management and treatment are essential to keep homes safe and intact.

Bird Control

Pest birds are associated with multiple risks. They spread diseases with their droppings and attract other pests like ticks, cockroaches and rodents.

Introduced species like feral pigeons, house sparrows, common starling and Indian Myna birds destroy local wildlife and ecosystems. Native protected birds can also be pests including the cockatoo, ibis, ducks, parrots, magpies, crows and swallows when their activities and behaviour become destructive.

Bird droppings can cause damage, especially to roofs and solar panels, because they are highly corrosive. Their droppings can also pose a health risk, with diseases such as histoplasmosis, cryptococcosus and psittacosis.

There are various bird deterrent systems that can be used for bird pest management. This task can only be done by licensed bird control specialists.

Rodent Control in Carseldine

Rats and mice can cause significant property damage, if they are ignored. Rats have incisors that grow continuously that they to constantly gnaw on household items to control them. They will even chew through wires behind walls, which can cause problems in your electricity.

They don’t have control over their bowel or bladder movement, so they leave urine and droppings everywhere. These bodily wastes are toxic and can potentially transmit serious diseases, if exposed to it.

Setting traps can eliminate isolated rodents but it doesn’t completely solve the problem. Only a qualified pest control service can provide safe, reliable and effective rodent control treatment and solution.

Ant Control

Ants are constantly searching for food to bring back to the rest of the ants in their colonies. These insects are almost always found where food scrap or food waste can be found, including pet food bowls, indoor compost bins, and beneath appliances like ovens, microwaves and refrigerators.

Where they build their nests depend on the species of ants. For example, some ants will build nests behind retaining walls. Others like black ants will have a colony in garden beds, lawns and vegetation. There are also ants that find sanctuary inside homes or potted plants during wet weather.

If you find yourself dealing with an ant infestation, eliminating them by yourself might bring only short-term relief. Hire a licensed pest control specialist for safe, effective and long-term ant control.

Cockroach Control in Carseldine

If you see cockroaches in your home, best not to ignore it. They can lay as many as 40 eggs at a time, so their population can increase fast in a short period of time. Cockroaches also present health risks, which is another incentive to deal with them asap.

Cockroaches are difficult to get rid of, but they are killable. Call your local pest control technician to apply a professional approach to your cockroach infestation.


Silverfish is an ancient species of insect that have been on the planet for over 400 million years. In fact, they even pre-date dinosaurs. As interesting as this fact is, silverfish remains a concerning household pest because of their feeding behaviours.

They will feed (and destroy) household items made of paper, glue or cloth. These include books, papers, clothing, wallpapers, etc. Silverfish are nocturnal and prefer to hide their activities. This is why they are usually found in dark spaces, preferably with high humidity, including bathrooms, garages, subfloors and behind walls.

To get rid of silverfish, seek professional assistance from licensed pest control technicians.

Spider Control in Carseldine

Spiders are not the most dangerous pests out there, but they are very common and a lot of people have a genuine fear of them.

Webbing spiders are a nuisance because their webs can make your home look drab, dusty and dirty. Other species of spider are venomous, which pose a risk to pets, children and the elderly.

If you’re to face a spider infestation, call a licensed pest control specialist who can provide effective spider control treatment.

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

Because Carseldine 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 Carseldine.

  • 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.
