Below are the pests that pose problems to homes and businesses in Gordon Park.
Ants can be found anywhere in Australia, especially in the summer. Out of the thousands of ant species found here, only a few are considered as pests. Two of the most concerning ant species for homeowners are the Black House Ant and the Coastal Brown Ant, which have a penchant for invading homes and building large nests around houses.
Outside the home, Green-head ant, Bull Ant and Fire Ant are of major concern, mainly because they can inflict painful bites to their victims. Some people may develop allergic reactions to ant bites, which should be given immediate medical attention.
There are hundreds of species of spiders in Australia. There are harmful ones, but thankfully most are harmless. The spiders that are normally encountered by pest exterminators are Garden Wolf Spiders, Redback Spiders, White-tail Spiders and Huntsman Spiders.
Some species prefer to stay outdoors and spin their wen in the yard area or near lights, while other will wander inside homes where they will spin webs in hard-to-reach places. Spiders are active at night, the time when they search for food, which are typically bugs and other pests.
Cockroaches spread diseases, so it is important to eliminate these pests to stop them from breeding and infesting your home. The types of cockroaches that are commonly treated in Gordon Park and other Brisbane suburbs are American Cockroaches, Australian Cockroaches and German Cockroaches.
They are usually found in moist, dark areas, located close to food sources. Cockroaches multiply at a fast rate and can survive at temperatures as high as 40+ degrees Celsius, or as cold as -5 degrees Celsius. Cockroaches eat whatever they can forage and go into hiding during the day, which makes it difficult to eliminate them.

Rats and mice can easily ruin homes and businesses, causing both property damage and health risks. They consume all kinds of food as well as things, which is due to their need to consume anything in their path in order to control their growing incisors.
The types of rodents frequently encountered by pest control technicians are House Mouse and Roof Rat. They can be found in various places around the house, including roof voids, wall cavities, cupboards, boxes, furnishings, and more.
They are nocturnal pests and are active mostly at night. Rodents can be stubborn, which makes it difficult to eliminate them once they gain access into a home. It is important to get rid of them immediately because of their potential harm to both health and property.
Silverfish are quick and like to hide their activities, which makes them hard to eliminate. They are not known to cause health risk, but they can easily wreck your personal belongings such as books, documents, carpets, and even food.
They prefer to live in dark areas and are active at night. They may be found in kitchen cabinets, bathtubs, restroom sinks, garages, sheds, as well as in roof voids and wall cavities. Silverfish can also live in wardrobes, storage boxes and piles of paper.
South East Queensland is listed as a high-risk area for termites by the CSIRO. This means 1 in 4 homes will be invaded by termites in its lifetime. Because of this, the Australian Standard 3660 recommends that homeowners have their homes inspected by licensed pest control technicians at least every year.
Yearly termite inspections are important for early discovery of termites and prevention of significant damage and costly repair services.

Because Gordon Park 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 Gordon Park.
