High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Eagle Farm is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Eagle Farm 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 Eagle Farm.
Eagle Farm is an eastern industrial suburb of the city of Brisbane, located 8.5 km north-east of the Brisbane CBD. It includes the neighbourhood of Whinstanes.
As of the 2016 Census, Eagle Farm had 0 residents. This is because Eagle Farm is mainly the transport and commercial centres of Brisbane. It is part of the industrial-development area called Australian TradeCoast.
It is situated adjacent to the Brisbane River on the south and the Brisbane airport on the northeast. All transport companies access Eagle Farm through the Pacific Highway.
Apart from the Royal Queensland Golf Club, which extends south to Brisbane River, the suburb is industrial.
Another feature Eagle Farm is known for, nationally and globally, is horse racing. The famous Eagle Farm Racecourse, the primary racecourse for thoroughbred racing in Brisbane, however, is located on neighbouring Ascot.
Despite having no residents, Eagle Farm comes alive during racing season with beautifully-attired race attendees and jockeys and trainers with their spirited horses.
Even a non-residential suburb like Eagle Farm has to content with potential pest infestation. This is due to commercial activities that could also attract spiders that are out looking for food sources, water and somewhere to shelter for warmth.
Ants are often ignored or neglected because of their tiny size. However, they can be a real pest because of their powerful sense of smell. This means they are good at finding food sources and getting into them.
These social insects are not known to cause structural damage to property or pose health risks to humans. But still, ants are known to forage for food in dirty places. They pick up germs on their bodies that get transferred to food and surfaces they’ have crawled on.
If you see an ant or a few ants inside or outside your property, don’t neglect it. It could mean that there is a more serious infestation going on. You may see small piles of dirt, or frass, near windows or doors. This is a strong indication of ant infestation.
Cockroaches are more likely to be seen when lights have been switched on and people are all asleep. Night time is feeding time. For cockroaches, food includes leftovers on the table and the dirty dishes in the sink. If you want to hunt them, try looking at damp areas or dark zones around your property.
These pests are common, but the sight of them they should not be normalised. They carry disease-causing pathogens in their bodies that can be spread to humans. They move in dirty places and tend to defecate on food items. People can fall sink if they accidentally consume contaminated food. People with allergies can worsen their situation if there is a cockroach infestation.

If you see discarded wings near your windows or a heap of wooden dust under the dining table, there is a good chance you’re dealing with a termite infestation. Termites don’t pose health risk to humans, but they can cause costly structural damage to your property.
Don’t ignore signs of termite infestation. The fact that you have noticed the signs mean the damage could already be significant. Call a licensed pest control specialist immediately.
Spiders are common, but it doesn’t mean they should be ignored. These eight-legged creatures don’t eat human food; they eat other insects. In this regard, spiders are beneficial in that they keep the pest population down.
However, they can still spoil or make food harmful by crawling on food items, which people can unknowingly consume. Some spiders don’t bite; they just go on about spinning webs. But others do bite, and the bite is venomous.
Though an effective anti-venom is available, it is still imperative for the bitten person to get immediate medical attention, or the bite could have certain serious consequences.
Rats and mice from the rodent family are nocturnal. Like other pests, these rodents also hang out in dirty places. There are countless bacteria stuck to their bodies. When rats and mice invade your residence or commercial space, they bring in various germs and viruses. These pathogens cause various diseases such as hantavirus, plague, leptospirosis, and more. Some species bite, which could turn fatal.
If you see signs of rodent activity, such as droppings, scratching sounds at night, strange, musky, odour, etc., don’t hesitate to call experienced pest control professionals.
