Pest Control in Moreton Island

Moreton Island (Mulgumpin) is an island on the eastern side of Moreton Bay on the coast of South East Queensland. It is the world’s third largest island. Most of the island is a national park, which is a popular destination for adventure seekers, especially those who like camping and fishing.

Moreton Island is part of the City of Brisbane and consists of four localities: Bulwer, Cowan Cowan, Kooringal and Moreton Island. It is also home to the private Tangalooma Island Resort. Passenger ferry services are available to get to the island.

As of the 2016 Census, it had a population of 243 people, with a median age of 30 years. All of them reside on the western coast of the island facing Moreton Bay.

Moreton Island is one of the wettest areas in Brisbane, with precipitation distributed uniformly throughout the year compared to other parts of South East Queensland.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Below are some of the pests that are considered as a threat to health and property in Moreton Island.

Cockroach Control in Moreton Island

There are thousands of species of cockroaches, but only a few are considered pests because of their ability to live with humans. These are formidable insects as they adapt easily to any type of environment and continue to breed.

Depending on their species, cockroaches can eat just about anything including fresh food and leftover foods, decaying matter, plants, and more. Most cockroaches in Australia are introduced species and the most common are American, Australian and German cockroaches.

Not only a nuisance, cockroaches are also a threat to people’s health because they carry disease-causing bacteria that can be transferred to people.

Ant Control

These tiny bugs are a nuisance because you can never predict where they can come from and when they would attack. It is quite scare to think that loads of ants often follows the company of a single ant.

There are more than 3000 species of ants in Australia, and the most common found in South East Queensland are Coastal Brown Ant, Black House Ant, Green Ant, and Carpenter Ant. Some species are destructive and others deliver a painful bite like the Green Ant, which are usually found in gardens.

Wasp Control in Moreton Island

There are more than a thousand species of wasps in Australia, and the most common found in South East Queensland are the Paper Wasps. This species also has different varieties, with colours ranging from bright yellow to black or reddish brown with yellow and black stripes.

The main food sources of wasps are other insects like spiders and caterpillars, and they love to collect nectar, which they can forage from food left outdoors.

Wasps live in a colony. If you find a colony in or around the vicinity of your property, don’t attempt to remove it yourself. Wasps bite when they feel threatened.

Spider Control

There are thousands of species of spiders in Australia. Most of them are harmless, and the rest are extremely venomous. If you are bitten by a spider, treat the bite seriously by seeking medical attention immediately.

The species of spiders that are common in Queensland are Northern Rivers Funnelweb, Redback Spider, White-tailed Spider, Black House Spider, Huntsman and Daddy Long Legs. If you see multiple spider webs in your home, you are likely to be facing a serious spider infestation.

One or two spiders can be caught and released but dealing with a multitude of spiders will be a challenge that only a qualified pest control specialist can handle.

Rodent Control in Moreton Island

Rodents, like mice and rats, are another type of pest that are common in Australia. Not only are they considered a nuisance, they are a threat to health and property.

Mice are omnivorous and quite good at adapting to its environment. Their food consists of cereals and seeds, and they are voracious as they are able to eat an average of 2-3 grams of food daily.

Rats are creatures of habit. They will take up residence in a home that provide easy access to food, water and shelter. They multiply quickly so that a couple of rats can become a family in a matter of weeks. Rats are also omnivorous, and one of their food sources are fruits and vegetables.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are not only annoying with their constant buzzing. They are also deadly, with the ability to transmit diseases through a single bite. Mosquito bites are known to cause diseases such as Dengue Fever, Malaria, Ross River Fever, Yellow Fever, and more.

They are common in Australia as they love the hot, wet weather that characterizes our country. Their breeding grounds are watery environments, such as canals and swaps, which are plentiful in an island setting like Moreton Island.

Females are the only ones that bite because they need blood for reproductive purposes. The males gather nectar and sweet stuff, which are also their main source of food.

Termite Control in Moreton Island

Termites cause more damage than fires and floods combined in Australia. They are quite interesting, but highly destructive. They can’t be ignored because termite damage is generally not covered by building and content insurance.

Queensland is a high-risk zone for termite attack. If you suspect a termite infestation in your property, call licensed pest control technicians right away and book and inspection.

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

Because Moreton Island 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 Moreton Island.

  • 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.
