Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

The suburb of Hendra with its tree-lined streets may be look charming and idyllic, but pests are lurking to get advantage of unwary property owners. Here are the pests that need to be watched.

Cockroach Control in Hendra

Cockroaches are drawn to properties with moisture, food and warmth. Their food sources are human food and a wide range of organic materials such as glue, cardboard, faeces, fellow cockroaches and dead animals. They are usually found in the bathroom and kitchen.

Because they are filthy pests, cockroaches pose threat to humans because they contaminate foods. So, it is important to prevent cockroaches from entering your home or avoiding a cockroach infestation. They can cause skin allergies and chronic diseases such as listeriosis, salmonellosis, typhoid fever, and more. The cockroaches that are commonly treated in Hendra are Australian Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, German Cockroach and American Cockroach.

Spider Control

Spiders will always try to get into homes, but rarely interact with humans. Unfortunately, especially for people with a genuine fear of spiders, these insects are part of Australian life. Fortunately, most of them are harmless and would simply spend their days spinning webs to catch their prey.

This is not saying that you shouldn’t be wary of spider inside your home. There are spiders whose venom can be fatal. For an average person, it is hard to identify species of spiders. If you get bitten, seek immediate medical attention. If you are experiencing a spider infestation, call for professional pest control service.

Ant Control in Hendra

Ants differ in size and colour, but they are all the same in terms of behaviour. The most vulnerable of your home that can be infested by ants is the area where food is prepared and/or stored. Sugary foods are one of their favourites and they can find wherever they are stored or located.

Ants bite, but one or two bites are insignificant. However, multiple bites can be a cause for concern because the patient can develop allergic reactions. Houses are a magnet for ants because of the presence of many food sources, such as human food and clothes.

It is fine to see one or two ants. But since ants are social insects, they live and work in groups. If you see an ant or two, it means there are many more that you’re not seeing just yet. Ant infestation can be irritating, and it will not be easy to get rid of them, so call for help from licensed pest control experts.

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Hendra is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Hendra 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 Hendra.

  • 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.
