Pest Control in Geebung

Geebung is a Brisbane suburb, located about 11 km from the central business district. It is surrounded by Chermside, Wavell Heights, Toombul and Virginia. Geebung is conveniently located along the Caboolture railway line.

One of Geebung’s claim to fame is being the area where fossils of a rare 50-million-year-old crocodile-like species and other prehistoric animals were discovered.

Its central location offers residents easy access to shops, parks and public transportation.

It is a quiet, vibrant, family-oriented suburb with plenty of seven parks, covering almost 4.1% of its total area. Many homes are built on a hill, which allows residents to enjoy a lovely breeze and a beautiful panoramic view of the city or bay.

The type of properties are predominantly post-war homes, which are mostly cottage-style older homes or contemporary brick and tile houses.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Here are the pests that can pose problems to property owners and homeowners on Geebung.

Ant Control

The common ant species in Queensland are the Black House Ant and Coastal Brown Ant. Ants are not known to carry disease themselves, but they can transport dirt and other unhygienic materials. They are also unsightly and can bite.

These pests are cold-blooded, so they love the warmer months. Ant population tends to increase as the weather turns warm and the level of humidity rises. Ants are likely to be seen in homes during winter as they seek shelter and food.

The things that ants are attracted to are pleasant temperature and moisture, so they would likely be seen in kitchens. They also love sweets, so they would be attracted by the smell of sweet foods like honey and sugar.

Cockroach Control in Geebung

Cockroaches are cold-blooded pests that can survive without sustenance for one month and can survive without water for a week. This is why they are often found in kitchens and bathrooms, and can be seen in moist sinks at night.

They are nocturnal, so if they are seen during the day, it is a sign of a severe cockroach infestation. Otherwise, the signs of cockroaches include sighting of their coffee bean-like droppings on counters and in drawers. The common types of cockroaches in Queensland are the Australian Cockroach, German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach and the Adult Smoky Brown Cockroach.

Cockroaches are difficult to kill. They can live for one week without their head and can survive under water for 40 minutes. The most effective way to kill cockroaches is by hiring a professional pest control company.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes feed on sweet nectar, fruits and other sugary stuff, but the females also feed on human blood to get the nutrients they need to develop eggs. They need water sources to lay eggs, so they should be found in or near stagnant bodies of water. This includes bodies of water found in your backyard such as pools and ponds, as well as floodwater, ditches and woodland pools.

Australia’s hot summers and breeding conditions allow mosquitoes to thrive. This is why mosquito control requires a multi-pronged approach. The local council already implements a mosquito program, but homeowners are also encouraged to do their own to keep mosquito population down.

Rodent Control in Geebung

Rodents can live in a variety of environments, but they especially love the urban areas. In homes, they build their nest in wall cavities, cupboards, boxes, furniture and burrows in gardens. In commercial areas, rodents will target invade places where there are waste and open pastures.

They are active at night, particularly between dusk and dawn as they dislike bright lights. If you see a rat or a mouse during the day, it could be a sign that you’re dealing with a large infestation. Rats and mice are agile creatures that can squeeze through a gap the size of a pencil, or gnaw an opening until it is big enough to fit them.

Like cockroaches, rats and mice are tough animals. Once they invade your home, it can be difficult to get rid of them. However, they must be dealt with because of their potential to spread diseases via the bacteria and germs they carry on their bodies.

Silverfish Control in Geebung

Silverfish are commonly found in books, carpet and stored items, as well as roof voids and other undisturbed spaces. They hide in cracks and crevices during the day. At night, they are active hunting for food, which includes natural and synthetic fibres, books and other paper products.

These pests prefer warm and humid environments, and air conditioning offers a perfect temperate environment for them to breed. Silverfish don’t pose health risk, but they can cause significant damage to personal belongings. Silverfish are common pests throughout South East Queensland and are not easy to exterminate without help from professional pest control technicians.

Spider Control

Australia is home to harmless and aggressive species of spiders. Luckily, only a few are considered dangerous, and only if they are provoked or feel threatened. The most venomous spiders in Australia are the Sydney Funnel-web and the Redback spider. Good news is that neither have been responsible for any death for almost 40 years because of the access to anti-venom.

The bite of white-tailed spiders, mouse spiders and trap door spiders can cause pain and swelling, but they are not interested in humans and will do their best to avoid us for the most part. The general rule is to avoid all spiders, especially if you can’t identify which species they belong to.

Termite Control in Geebung

Termites are social insects that love together in colonies, where they perform the tasks assigned to them by the caste they belong to. They are active 24/7, 365 days a year, which means they are feeding on timber and timber materials non-stop.

They feed from the inside, leaving a paper-thin shell on the outside. On residential properties, termites will attack finished timbers such as door frames, skirting boards, subfloor timbers and framing. A termite infestation can only be treated professionally. Any attempt at any DIY approach can only bring a temporary solution.

If you are building a new home, renovating or buying a home in Geebung, 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


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

Because Geebung 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 Geebung.

  • 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.
