Pest Control in Chermside West

Chermside West is a residential suburb in the City of Brisbane. It is located 11.7 km north of the Brisbane GPO.

There were 6,458 residents in Chermside West as of the 2016 Census.

Residents enjoy the best of both worlds: the modern amenities of being close to retail and business hubs and a quiet sanctuary from its busier surrounding neighbours. It is the home of Chermside Hills Reserves, which make up more than 129 hectares of parklands and nature reserves, where there are walking and bike paths. This quiet, leafy suburb is also an essential wildlife corridor, where you can easily spot koalas.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Here are the pests that can potentially cause problems for Chermside West residents.

Ant Control

Seeing ants crawling around your house is not only annoying, but ants can result in painful bites, destroyed property and contaminated food. Though they live in a colony, but they scavenge food where they can find them, including unhygienic places.

Killing ants can sometimes be challenging. This job requires knowledge, patience and a tailored treatment plan. Call your local pest control professional for effective ant control.

Rodent Control in Chermside West

If you see a rodent scurrying around your home, chances are there are more of them nearby. Rats and mice normally stay outside, but they will come inside homes and buildings in search of shelter and food.

Generally, rats and mice will avoid humans as much as possible. However, houses offer a perfect environment for rodents to thrive. If you are experiencing a rodent infestation, the smartest move is to call a licensed pest control service to provide effective rodent infestation treatment.

Spider Control

Most species of spiders are harmless, in general, but most people are scared of them. This fear could be due to these pests’ fangs, hairy bodies and eight legs. About 10,000 species of spiders are found in Australia.

Spiders are not harmful. In fact, they provide many benefits for the environment. But it is also true that there are venomous spiders that can deliver a lethal dose of toxic to bite victims, if not given immediate medical attention.

If you have a spider infestation in your home, call a professional pest control company to eliminate pest spiders effectively.

Cockroach Control

Cockroach infestation is not uncommon in Brisbane suburbs. They breed in damp areas, such as toilets and behind dishwashers. Cockroaches also wait to raid your refrigerator in the kitchen.

What’s worst is that cockroaches spoil food and cutlery. Contact with food or surface contaminated by cockroaches can spread diseases. If you have a problem with cockroaches crawling your home and you want to deal with them immediately, call a licensed pest control technician.

Termite Control in Chermside West

Termites is a serious concern around Brisbane and its suburbs. In fact, one-third of properties have termites. However, if termites are detected fairly enough, the extent of the damage can be mitigated.

It’s not easy to spot termites as they mostly live underground. But termite infestation is easy to spot and find. Sadly, what this means is that the damage is significant enough to be visible. This is the reason why it is important for Chermside West residents to prioritise the installation of termite barrier (if you don’t have it already), and regular termite inspections.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes and the worry of the diseases that they may transmit is an ever-present concern for Chermside West residents. Indeed, mosquitoes are killers, having been the cause of millions of deaths throughout history.

Getting rid of mosquitoes may not be easy. Particularly, their eggs can survive for years without hatching. If you are dealing with a mosquito infestation in your home, contact your local pest control professional immediately.

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

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

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 Chermside West.

  • 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.
