Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Here are a few pests posing potential infestation problems for the residents of Northgate.

Ant Control in Northgate

Ants are one of the most common insects in the world. Their diet is diverse, so they will eat almost anything. Ants may be small, but they become a problem when they invade your home.

They compromise sanitation and hygiene. Ants can also cause damage to property by eating food (and contaminating them) and destroying furniture.

What can you do to avoid ant infestation? When ants find a promising food source, they will tell others about it by leaving an invisible chemical trail. The trail is where you will see ants crawling in one line.

Eliminate that trail by vacuuming it and wiping it down with soapy water or vinegar. In addition, store your food properly to deter ants.

Cockroach Control in Northgate

Cockroaches spread diseases by contaminating your dishes and stored food. They carry germs and viruses on their bodies that they can spread to humans. These pathogens can cause serious illnesses such as salmonella, gastroenteritis and food poisoning. Their skin sheds may cause allergic reactions to people who are asthma sensitive.

If you are dealing with a persistent cockroach infestation or worried about cockroaches in your commercial space, book a cockroach removal pest control service.

Mosquito Control in Northgate

Mosquitoes are everywhere in Brisbane. As a result, the fear of catching a disease from their bite is a constant worry. They are one of the most dangerous insects on the planet, as the culprit of nearly 1 million deaths every year.

Generally, a mosquito would only cause itching and skin irritation. However, mosquitoes can transmit serious diseases such as dengue and malaria.

If you are experiencing problems with mosquito, book a pest control expert to eradicate mosquitoes from your home or business effectively.

Spider Control

With over 10,000 species found in Australia, spiders are quite common in Brisbane and its suburbs. They are now more common than they’ve ever been given the fact that spiders are now found in both rural and urban areas.

There are two main reasons spiders are problematic. One, their webs can make your home look messy and unhygienic. Two, there are species of spiders with a lethal bite, such as the funnel web and the redback. If you are bitten by a spider, make sure to get immediate medical attention.

Termite Control in Northgate

One-third of the properties in Brisbane termites. Annually, these wood-eating pests cause millions of dollars’ worth of damages in Australia. However, damage can significantly be reduced if termites are detected early enough. These are the reasons why termite inspections and termite preventive measures are essential.

Termites should not be confused with ants. They belong from a different insect order (Isoptera) from ants (Hymenoptera). Their colours range from brown to white. Termites also have a darker head and no waist linking the thorax and abdomen.

If you want your home to be forever termite-free, call a professional termite control specialist in your area now.

Rodent Control in Northgate

Rodents are another major infestation problem in Brisbane and its suburbs, including Northgate, especially as winter arrives. If you’re hearing strange noises from inside your walls or roof voids, it is likely rodents that are making them.

There are various ways to treat a rodent infestation, from traps to repellents to non-toxic chemicals. Your local rodent control technician has all of these solutions and the training and experience to apply them effectively. Book a pest control service now, if you are dealing with a rodent infestation.

Silverfish Control

These wingless insects are typically found in moist, humid areas of a property. If you see holes in your books or clothes, it may be the work of silverfish.

It is a challenge getting rid of silverfish because they are fast, agile and are only active at night when most people are sleeping. It takes a trained professional to handle a silverfish infestation. So, if you are having problems with silverfish, call an experienced pest control expert.

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

Because Northgate 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 Northgate.

  • 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.
