Hemmant is a Brisbane suburb, with a population of 2,385 people. Located 11 km east of the CBD, it is bordered by the Brisbane River to the north and Bulimba Creek to the west.
t also has an easy access to the Gateway motorway and is only a short drive to the Wynnum foreshore. Many amenities are close by including schools, sports facilities, shops and professional services.
It has a railway station that offers passenger services on the Cleveland line.
The area north of the railway lines is mainly for industrial purposes because of its proximity to the Port of Brisbane. The south of the railway lines is primarily a residential area.
The area was originally farmed with crops and sugar cane. It still has plenty of acreage property, which gives it a county vibe despite its proximity to the Brisbane CBD, complete with a number of parks and wildlife.
Here are the some of the destructive pests that are causing problems with the homeowners and business owners of Hemmant.
Termites, despite being mistaken for ants, are actually a close cousin of cockroaches. Their main food sources are wood, fallen leaves, dirt and animal wastes. The potential damage that termites can cause is terrifying to even imagine.
Since they live underground, termites are hard to identify. Worker termites also feed 24/7, so the damage can already be extensive when you discover it.
Only licensed pest control specialists should be allowed to handle termite infestations. They can detect infestations early and can recommend an effective solution for termites.
Spiders are usually found in dark and empty spaces, where there will be cobwebs in inaccessible places such as unoccupied store rooms, cupboards, garages, attics, basements, baseboards, ceilings, and more.
If you discover a number of cobwebs, expect that there are colonies of spiders that you have yet to find. Hence, calling for professional assistance to identify the spiders and apply the appropriate treatment.
The population of rodents in the Brisbane has increased dramatically over the last few years, noticeably during the pandemic. Rodents have also grown significantly in size, which makes them more formidable in their ability to cause property damage.
Rodents are not safe to have around because they pick up germs and bacteria in places where they search for food. These harmful pathogens can be transferred to surfaces or food that rodents have touched.
Rodents can multiply quickly, so you will be dealing with multiple rodents in an infestation. Contacting a qualified pest control specialist is the best way to handle rodent infestations.

Like a lot of pests, cockroaches are active at night to search for food. Cockroaches are unhygienic because they crawl around dirty places. They contaminate food, surfaces and clothes that they touch.
A cockroach infestation must not be ignored because these pests carry pathogens that can cause serious diseases including typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery, leprosy, etc. This problem must be handled immediately because cockroaches multiply quickly and a huge population of cockroaches is much harder to handle.
Silverfish are considered a pest though they don’t bite or pose a health risk. However, they can be destructive because they feed on people’s personal belongings including wooden starched furniture, books, papers, wallpapers, and more. This type of destruction is irreparable and devastating, especially if the items hold special meaning and memories to the owner.
These bugs are not only a problem in homes, but they are also likely to attack bookstores, stationery stores, libraries and offices. These places are especially vulnerable to silverfish because of the large amount of paper and documents they contain.
Silverfish may appear somewhat tame in comparison with other bugs, but the truth is they should be treated like any other pests – destructive and therefore, should be treated right away.
Ants are found in almost all parts of the world, but the population of ants is noticeably more in Australia. They attack both residential and commercial properties. Ants are generally harmless to humans, but there are species like red ants that should be avoided because they deliver extremely painful bites.
The bites are also considered poisonous and if multiple red ants bite you, it can lead to anaphylactic shock, which requires immediate medical attention.
Ants live in a colony, which can house hundreds of thousands of ants. If you discover one, contact your local pest control technicians, who are trained to treat ants using the appropriate methods and tools.

High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Hemmant is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Hemmant 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 Hemmant.
