Kelvin Grove is an inner northern suburb in the city of Brisbane, located just 3 km from the CBD.
The 2016 Census put the suburb’s population at 7,927.
Kelvin Grove is mostly residential with a light industrial and commercial strip on Kelvin Grove Road and a major state school campus. A golf course is located on the eastern edge and a mixed-used development on the southern part.
The suburb is the first choice for family entertainment and inner-city convenience, with its well-built homes, quiet, leafy streets, and educational and entertainment amenities. The hilly terrain provides many residents with beautiful views and cool breezes during summers.
Like many inner suburbs, the homes in Kelvin Grove consist of traditional Queenslander homes, post-war worker’s cottages and contemporary apartment blocks.
If cockroaches or ants have come into your home, or you suspect a termite invasion, you need professionals for your pest control emergency.
Ant Treatment in Kelvin Grove
Though there are thousands of ant species in Australia, only a handful are considered as pests. These pests invade homes and threaten our way of life.
Some of the common species in Brisbane are fire ants, electric ants, yellow crazy ants and garden ants. It’s important to know what species you’re dealing with because professionals can customise treatment for a more effective and long-lasting solution.
Many people think that cockroaches are just a nuisance, but Ignoring them is a bad idea. Their dropping and eggs can trigger an allergic reaction in people, who could experience all sorts of symptoms including nasal congestion, wheezing, skin rashes, etc.
Cockroaches also carry bacteria that causes many kinds of diseases such as typhoid fever, food poisoning, etc. Some of the symptoms of these diseases include vomiting, fever, headache etc.
There is also a social cost as properties with a cockroach infestation look unhealthy, unhygienic and uninviting for other people. Cockroach infestation must be treated because it can invite other bugs to the inside of your home.
Rodents carry various pathogens that cause various diseases such as leptospirosis, plague, etc., which can be transmitted to human via direct contact or rodent-contaminated food products. They can also cause damage to property due to their gnawing habit. Rodents chew on electrical wirings, light fixtures and appliances, even aluminium and lead sheeting.
So, as soon as you discover a rodent infestation, call a professional pest control company immediately. Rodents can multiply quickly because newborn females can reproduce in a matter of weeks.

Silverfish may not pose any health risk, but they are still unwelcome and undesirable in a living environment.
They are notorious for various property issues. Silverfish feed on books, paintings, walls and clothing, and would often be found in damp, dark environments. They may try to gain access into your kitchen and pantry and contaminate your food supply.
In addition, the presence of silverfish may invite other pests, including their predators such as centipedes, spiders, cockroaches, etc. Since they prefer dark areas, you may not be able to detect their presence immediately.
There are several signs indicating the presence of silverfish. Some of the obvious signs are yellowish stains on your clothes and holes in wallpapers.
A vast majority of the thousands of species of spiders found in Australia are not harmful or live where people are. Nonetheless, there are risks associated with spiders, especially if you encounter the venomous ones. A spider bite can cause nausea, skin lesions, and in extreme cases, death.
The species commonly found in Queensland are Black House Spider, Brown Huntsman Spider, Grey Huntsman Spider, White-tailed Spider, Daddy Long Legs, and Wolf Spider. Each of these species are different and therefore create different problems for humans.
Spiders and spider webs in a property give the impression of a lack of maintenance and hygiene, and people don’t feel welcome in these properties.
Termites don’t pose a health risk to humans, but they are still one of the most destructive pests on earth. In Queensland, there are two common species of termites: subterranean and dry-wood termites.
Subterranean termites are highly destructive, causing structural damage to properties that can be expensive to repair. Aside from wood, termites also feed on books, paper, wood furniture, insulation, and even pool liners and filtration systems.
The wooden structures attacked and damaged by termites may be used by other pests as access point to the property. This is why it is essential to be proactive when it comes to termites, especially in regions like Queensland where termites are prevalent.

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