Pest Control in Hamilton

Located on the highly desirable Inner North East area of Brisbane, Hamilton is a much sought-after suburb with its beautiful river and city views, quiet leafy streets and proximity to the CBD.

It is located 8 km from the Brisbane CBD, or about 15 minutes by car. It is adjacent to Ascot, which is home to the Doomben and Eagle Farm. It only takes 10 minutes by car from Hamilton to the Brisbane Domestic and International Airport.

As of the 2016 Census, the suburb had 6,995 residents.

The size of the suburb is about 3.4 sq km, with 1 park covering almost 0.6% of the total land area. It is bordered by the Brisbane River to the south and this part of the river is called Hamilton Reach.

The western side of Hamilton is hilly, providing majestic views of the Brisbane CBD, including Toorak Hill and Eldernell.

There are various types of properties available in Hamilton. They include old grand homes, imposing Queenslanders, contemporary homes and riverside units. It is one of the most affluent suburbs in Brisbane, thus the properties are predominantly large, luxury homes on large blocks of land. The riverside apartment units, on the other hand, are close to shops, the Kingsford Smith Drive pedestrian path and local parks.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Hamilton maybe an affluent suburb with grand, beautiful homes, pests remain a threat. Here are the pests that can cause problems in Hamilton.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes thrive in wet, hot conditions and a Brisbane summer never disappoints on these two things. They are a problem for homeowners in Hamilton and its neighbour Ascot as these suburbs are located near the Brisbane River. No wonder, pest control companies get many calls about mosquito problems in these areas especially after a heavy rainfall.

Mosquitoes are as common as kangaroos in Australia, but it doesn’t mean people like them. Mosquito control and elimination is essential because these blood-sucking insects transmit serious diseases to humans with just one bite.

Cockroach Control in Hamilton

Warm weather entices cockroaches to become more active in Hamilton and the Brisbane area. It doesn’t matter whether a home is clean and tidy, cockroaches can find their way first into your home and then into your home.

These pests pose a health risk by contaminating the areas where food is prepared, eaten or stored. Cockroaches can cause allergic reaction to people with asthma or breathing difficulties. They also multiply at an alarming rate, so it is important to take cockroach control measures as soon as their presence is detected in the home.

Ant Control

Ants live in a colony, which they build on the dirt, wood, under pavers, wall voids or roof gaps. They can travel a long distance as they search and forage food and water. Most species of ants will take the food back to the rest of the ants in their colony.

Ants are present all-year round. However, ant activity normally increases during periods of high humidity. Aside from their colony, ants can also be found in the kitchen cupboards, bathrooms, wall surfaces, near electrical devices, along pathways, as well as any and all areas that are near food and water.

Rodent Control in Hamilton

Rodents, in particular rats and mice, can cause damage to homes and businesses. They are omnivores, which allows them to eat any type of food as well as household items. The type of rodents commonly treated by pest control technicians are House Mouse, Norway Rat and Roof Rat.

They are typically found in wall surface cavities, cupboards, boxes, furniture and also burrows in gardens. Like many other pests, they are nocturnal, only coming out at night to search for food.

Rats and mice are considered as pests because of the health risk they pose on humans. This is why it is important to get rid of them before they transmit diseases.

Spider Control

There are hundreds of species of spiders in Australia. Some species are dangerous, but most of them are generally harmless. The species that are commonly treated in Hamilton are Garden Wolf Spider, Redback Spider, White-tail Spider and Huntsman Spider.

Spiders are nocturnal, appearing at night to hunt for food and feed on other pests as well as other spiders. They tend to become livelier as the weather becomes chillier and they surface from their hiding location in search of a mate.

It can be difficult to keep spiders at bay because they prefer concealed locations that are hard to find. This is why it is essential to have regular treatments done to keep spider population down.

Termite Control in Hamilton

Termites are a true threat to homeowners in Hamilton and the whole of Brisbane. The damage they can do can significantly lower the value of a property and make it harder to sell. Once termites manage to enter your home, they will consume any wood they can reach, causing damage to your flooring, kitchen, wooden furniture, basic framework, and more.

If you’re living near a woodland or have trees in your yard or have a neighbour with trees that are close to yours, a regular termite inspection is vital to protect your property.

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


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

Because Hamilton 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 Hamilton.

  • 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.
