Here are the pests that can cause problems for homeowners and business owners in Kedron.
Termites, also called white ants, feed on cellulose materials, which are typically found in decaying tree stumps, leaf litter, grass and wood. There are various species of termites, but only a few pose a threat to buildings and belongings.
There are two species of termites that are common in Queensland. The subterranean termites require a high level of moisture to thrive. They live below ground, so it takes longer for homeowners to notice the damages they cause. This is why regular termite inspection is important and to have termite barriers set up around your property.
The drywood termites don’t require the same moisture levels as subterranean termites, so they can thrive inside your home without having the need to go back to the ground for their needed moisture. One of the signs of drywood termites is finding faecal pellets beside or below the timber in your home.
Cockroaches carry diseases that they can spread to humans through contact with your food, utensils, kitchen surfaces, etc. These diseases include salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis, and more. Even the cleanest of homes are not safe from cockroaches because of grease, sugar and other food deposits lodged in hard-to-reach areas such as drains, behind refrigerators, dishwashers, and inside cracks and crevices.
The most common types of cockroaches in Queensland are American Cockroach, Australian Cockroach German Cockroach and Brown Banded Cockroach. Cockroaches feed on almost all organic materials, even the most disgusting ones. They will seek out food scraps, unsealed food containers, sugar and grease deposits, etc.
Since they are nocturnal feeders, you would most likely see cockroaches crawling at night when you open the lights. They rest during the day in any warm space like wall cavities, roof voids and cracks and crevices in the kitchen and bathroom.

Ants are troublesome especially in places like Australia with a tropical climate. During the warm and wet seasons, ants are quite active as they search for a new nest location and food and water. This is why ants can usually be seen in the wet areas of your home like kitchen sinks, bathrooms and laundries. They also tend to nest in any tiny cracks and crevices that they can find, making them difficult to treat with the proper tools and equipment.
Some of the ants that pest control professionals treat in Kedron are Coastal Brown Ants, Carpenter Ants, Argentine Ants, Fire Ants, Red Imported Red Ants, Pavement Ants, and Garden Ants.
The most common types of spiders in Queensland are Huntsman Spiders, Red-back Spiders, Funnel-web Spiders, Black House Spiders, White-tailed Spiders, Wolf Spiders, Orb-weaver Spiders and Cellar Spiders.
Spiders can trigger fear in many people, but the spiders that are encountered in houses and businesses are of no real concern. It’s true that Australia is home to some of the most fearsome spiders in the world, but their reputation is bigger than their perceived danger.
The main issue with spiders is they constantly build webs in and around the house which can be a nuisance. Webs also make spaces look dirty and unkempt. Most of the time vacuuming spiders is not enough because these will insects return after a while. If you are dealing with a spider infestation, call for help from professional pest control technicians.
Rats and mice are common in Queensland. They are nocturnal and have poor eyesight but makes up for it with their excellent smell and hearing. These pests cause property damage because of their need to constant gnaw and chew on anything they encounter. This can include electrical wiring, which can cause electrical short circuit, which can lead to fire.
They are also spreaders of diseases through the bacteria that they carry in their bodies. These pathogens are transferred through their saliva, faeces and urine. If you hear noises in your wall or roof void, especially at night, this is a sign that rats or mice might be visiting your home to look for food. If you discover or suspect that you are experiencing a rodent infestation, call pest control specialists for an effective treatment plan.

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