High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Deagon is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Deagon 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 Deagon.
Deagon is an outer northern in the City of Brisbane. As of 2016, it had 3,675 residents.
Located about 16 km north of the Brisbane CBD. It is partly separated from Sandgate by a series of lagoons and former water reserves.
Deagon has a flat topography. One of its borders is Cabbage Tree Creek, whose catchment is mostly urbanized. The Boondall Wetlands, which is separated from the suburb from Cabbage Tree Creek, provides vital sanctuary for a variety of birds and animals, including migratory birds. The wetlands close to Deagon has both a freshwater area and a salt water area. The Deagon Wetland is an essential relic of a tea tree woodland on a 50-hectare site and is home to a range of bird species.
For a tiny suburb at only 2.7 sq m, Deagon has a lot to offer. It has got plenty of culture and retail option as well as a broad selection of cafes, restaurants and bars. Deagon has excellent transport options, including a train station on the Shorncliffe line and it is close to the ocean.
Below are some of the pests that pose a threat to health and property for residents in Deagon.
Termites’ eating habit, which is made up exclusively of wood/timber, can cause serious structural damage if it is ignored and could end up costing a huge sum to repair. It can take a while to notice termite activity in your home because most of their activities are conducted underground.
You’d know if you have termites if you see discarded and broken wings that are mostly found in basement windowsills and cobwebs. You will see droppings, or frass, which look like mounds of black specks or a dark powdery substance. In addition, damaged, rotted or hallowed out wood indicate termite damage.
If you have a termite infestation, call pest control technicians who have the skills to spot the signs of termite infestation and recommend the most effective treatment.
Rats and mice are pests of significant concern because they can cause property damages, health problems and safety concerns in the home and place of business. They can chew through various materials including glass, aluminium, wood, wire and even cinderblocks.
Some signs of rodent infestation include the sight of rodent droppings, gnawed holes in walls, furniture, cardboard, etc., musky urine odours, and scampering and scratching noises in the roof or walls, especially at night.
Rodent control is important because these pests can multiply quickly and become a full-blown infestation in no time. The females can give birth to 24-72 babies in just one year and those babies will be able to reproduce in as little as four weeks.
Wasps thrive on trees and plants because it provides shelter and nourishment. They can sting multiple times and those stings hurt a lot. Multiple stings can cause an allergy, which can be life-threatening if not given immediate medical attention.
These insects attack if they are provoked or their nest is threatened. People are most likely to encounter wasps because people means a supply of food and drink is nearby, especially the sweet kinds.
If you see a wasp nest in your area, let a trained pest control technician handle the removal for safety reasons.
A suburb like Deagon that features a wetland is vulnerable to mosquitoes. These insects come alive at dawn or dusk and their bites can result in skin irritation like itchiness, redness or inflammation.
Through their bite, mosquitoes can also spread diseases such as dengue, malaria, Ross River fever, Barmah Forest virus, and more. Thus, it is important to implement proper mosquito control and preventive measures.

Ants are generally active throughout the year, though they can enter different states if hibernation when the weather turns cold. However, in general, they are always up and about searching for food, building their nests and expanding their colony. Ant nests differ depending on species. Some are centered around one queen, others on multiple queens. There are also nests with no queen at all.
Biting is the usual attack method of many ants, but ant bites are rarely fatal. One exception is the Jack Jumper Ant, which is native to Australia and typically found in the southeast region and Tasmania. Luckily, there is an effective anti-venom for Jack Jumper Ant bites.
In nature, ants are excellent pest control for the toad population. However, they are a nuisance in urban settings. Getting rid of ants DIY-style doesn’t fix the problem at the source. Call a qualified pest control specialist for an effective ant control and treatment solution.
Cockroaches are a threat all year, but activity dies down usually during the winter months. However, cockroaches are generally nocturnal, and accounting for all these factors means you are more likely to see a cockroach crawling in your kitchen area on a warm spring night.
These pests are likely to build their sanctuary in dark, moist areas, which makes kitchens and bathrooms ideal for them. Using different pheromones and odorous signals, a lone cockroach will indicate to others that they should for a group, and a new nest will be built.
Cockroaches present a threat to people’s health as they spread all sorts of bacteria and germs that they carry in their bodies to surfaces and food. There are also individuals that can develop an allergic response to cockroaches, which makes it important to keep your house free of these insects.
