Pest Control in Gaythorne

Gaythorne is a suburb located 7 km north-west of the Brisbane CBD. It has 3,023 residents according to the 2016 Census.

It is bordered to the north by Kedron Brook and lies on the slopes of Enoggera Hill. Most of the residential properties are Queenslanders.

This leafy, residential suburb attracts the younger crowds with its convenient location and the older timber houses that can be transformed into four- or five-bedroom houses.

Gaythorne has good schools and sports facilities, public transport, parks and recreation, and shops other amenities.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Gaythorne, like all the Brisbane suburbs, encounters pests all-year around. Especially vulnerable are those residences and properties that are being taken care of by their owners. With pests, one moment of negligence is all it takes for them to attack as they continuously search for sources of food and water as well as shelter.

Ant Control in Gaythorne

Ants can be everywhere in your house, typically in the kitchen, pantry and areas where food is accessible. Despite their size, ants can be troublesome and annoying because they can spoil food. They can also attack you with painful bites.

These pests are usually outdoors, but they can decide to build a nest and settle inside your home. They nest in hard-to-reach places, so the ants you see crawling is just a small portion of their entire colony. For effective and safe ant control, hire a licensed pest control professional.

Cockroach Control

These ancient pests have been around for about 400 million years. As amazing as that it, cockroaches are still disgusting and pose health risks. They carry germs that can cause diseases and spread allergens to food and kitchen utensils that they get in contact with.

They diseases that you can get from cockroaches are salmonella, typhoid fever, dysentery, etc. It is important to seek the help of pest control experts if you spot more than one cockroach in your premises. These little pests can multiply fast and they can move pretty fast, which makes it difficult to spot them and get rid of them.

Rodent Control in Gaythorne

Although rodents look small, furry and harmless, it is not a case at all. Rodents like rats and mice can destroy appliances and personal belongings like clothing and spread serious diseases.

Thanks to Gaythorne’s favourable climate, it is common to see House Mice, Black Climbing Rats, Brown Rats and other native rodents. They are social in nature, living in groups, which means if you see one rat or mice, it has a family that is growing and growing as days and weeks pass.

Rats and mice are also territorial when it comes to their food and shelter. So, if you are having a rodent infestation in your home, hire pest control professionals to eradicate the rodent infestation completely and prevent a re-infestation.

Wasp Control in Gaythorne

Wasps are fine if they are left alone. A threat to their colony triggers their aggressive. If you get stung by a wasp, seek medical attention to ensure you don’t develop severe allergic reaction to their venom.

These pests build pests at locations where food and shelter can easily be accessed. If you discover a wasp nest or encounter wasps, call a qualified pest control specialist to remove the nest from your vicinity safely.

Spider Control

The sight of spiders can be bone-chilling to most people, more so to those with a real fear of these eight-legged creatures. Spiders usually avoid humans, so if you see one or several, this may be a sign that there are more that are hiding.

If you spot one or two spiders in your premises, call a licensed pest control service to make sure your spaces are spider-free in no time. These professionals are able to identify any type of spider, whether Huntsman, wolf spider, Daddy Long Legs, Black House spider, and eliminate them immediately with personalised treatment.

Termite Control in Gaythorne

In Gaythorne, termite infestation is more likely to occur than disasters like flood or fire. It is because termites are prevalent in the region, thanks to its subtropical weather. It is practical to make sure your property has a termite management system in place to deter termites from making a meal of your precious home.

It also makes sense to have a regular termite inspection done on your premises to make sure termites are staying away. Once termites get into your property, it will take time before damage becomes noticeable, and by that time, it would be nearly impossible to save your place of warmth and security.

If you are building a new home, renovating or buying a home in Gaythorne, you will need to consider what termite prevention solutions are available. Our company offers all types of solutions including physical and chemical barriers as well as reticulation systems. You can reach us on


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

Because Gaythorne 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 Gaythorne.

  • 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.
