Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Here are the pests that commonly infest buildings and structures in Kalinga.

Spider Control

Australia is home to a variety of spiders, all thriving in different habitats. Some of these spiders are Red Back Spiders, White Tail Spiders, Black House Spiders, Huntsman Spiders, Wolf Spiders, Brown Trapdoor Spiders and Orb Weaving Spiders.

Some spider species that are found in homes have adapted to indoor conditions and can thrive in less humid environment and with less food available. The spiders that are found outdoors love the warm and damp surroundings, in which other bugs are their preferred food. If you notice an unusual population of spiders in your premises, call professional pest control experts.

Ant Control in Kalinga

Ants can cause problems as they enter buildings in search of food and water, or when they build colonies in buildings and gardens. They are drawn to a variety of food, with various species preferring sweets, meats, fats or oils. When they find food, ants will recruit fellow ants to help gather the food and return it to their nest. This results in large numbers of ants appearing in a brief period.

Ant nests can be found anywhere in and around your property, including in lawns, walls, stumps, foundations and concrete slabs. It takes more ant sprays to achieve a successful, long-term ant control. Hire pest control experts.

Rodent Control in Kalinga

Rats and mice infestation is a serious concern in Queensland homes and offices. These pests are drawn to these structures because they provide food, water and shelter. Aside from spreading diseases, rodents also cause damage to property. Because they gnaw on anything, they can damage your water pipes, plaster, ducts for heater and air conditioner, and electrical cables and conduits.

Rodents If you suspect a rodent infestation in your home, call pest control professionals for a customised treatment plan.

Cockroach Control in Kalinga

There are various cockroach species in Queensland, the most common of which are American Cockroach, Australian Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, Smoky Brown Cockroach and Brown Banded Cockroach.

The German Cockroach can be a serious concern in commercial spaces because they can multiply fast, and they can live in refrigerators and tiny gaps and crevices. The Australian, American and Smoky Brown Cockroaches are larger than German Cockroaches and can be found throughout buildings and can fly at night. Cockroaches can spoil food, utensils and preparation areas with their faeces, shed skins, egg sacs, vomit marks and musky odours.

Cockroaches prefer environments like those that people create, which is why it is important for professional pest control technicians to do cockroach control and treatment.

Silverfish Control

Silverfish love damp, dark and humid places, which is why they are usually found in bathrooms, kitchens, roof voids, wall cavities, cupboards and bookshelves. They are typically detected when they are found on the floor or in a sink/bathtub, or holes are seen in clothing.

These pests are not known to pose health risk to humans, but they damage valuable personal belongings. They are prolific breeders, so an infestation can turn severe in a short period of time.

Termite Control in Kalinga

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

Because Kalinga 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 Kalinga.

  • 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.
