Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

The pests that might cause problems for residents in Nudgee are:

Mosquito Control

Being close to wetlands, mosquitoes often come out to bite. However, the city council has a program to spray mosquitoes regularly.

However, property owners still bear some responsibility for mosquito control. Mosquitoes, specifically the female species’ bite, are dangerous. They can transmit various diseases, some of which can be fatal. These blood-sucking insects are prolific killers, having been tagged as the cause of millions of human deaths throughout the years.

You can do your part in making sure mosquito infestation in your area is prevented. The simplest of ways is to eliminate standing water around your premises, as this is where mosquito lay their eggs.

Cockroach Control in Nudgee

Cockroaches can enter your property in different ways. They can crawl through openings or find a path through drains or sewer pipes. There are also cockroaches that can fly their way through open windows or doors.

These pests carry germs that cause various diseases, making them dangerous to have around your home. They can contaminate food and surfaces with their droppings, vomit and other bodily fluids.

Eliminating cockroaches is a bit of a challenge because they are resilient and highly adaptable. So, if you are dealing with a cockroach infestation, call your local pest control company.

Ant Control in Nudgee

Ants come in different sizes and species, so a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment of ant infestation require may not be effective.

Don’t ignore the sight of ants even if there is just a few of them insider or outside your house. It could mean you’re dealing with a more significant ant infestation. You may see small piles of dirt or soil near the windows or doors. This is called the frass of ants, which is one of many signs of ant infestation.

Wasp Control

Wasps go out of their nest to look for food, which are generally sweets, flowers and food leftovers. This is how properties usually attract wasps.

Wasps sting their prey. When this happens, the patient needs medical attention because there are some people that can develop allergic reactions to wasp sting. To protect yourself against wasps, their nest should be removed from the vicinity of your property.

Hire a local pest control technician to make sure the wasp nest is removed safely.

Rodent Control in Nudgee

Rats and mice can spread a multitude of diseases. These are transmitted by direct exposure to anything touched by rodent, via their saliva, faeces, urine or direct biting. Rodents can also cause other pest infestations because pests like ticks, mites and fleas may be attached to them.

Rodents can also cause damage to property such as clothing, appliances, personal belongings, electric cables, etc. This habit of constantly chewing is borne out of their need to control their growing incisors.

You don’t have to deal with a rodent infestation alone. Call your local pest control experts for professional assistance.

Spider Control

Spiders can be fearsome for some people and can just be plainly gross to others. Spotting a lone spider is a cause for concern because there may be more of them in hiding. Spiders aren’t aggressive and prefers to hide when they feel human presence.

A serious problem with spiders mean spider webs – a lot of them – even in hard-to-reach places in your property. What is more concerning is you may be harbouring a species of spider that are venomous. A spider bite should always be treated seriously because a spider bite, especially from a venomous one like a redback or funnel-web, might be fatal.

Did you see discarded wings near your window? Or a heap of wooden dust under the furniture? Don’t ignore these signs because these are more likely caused by termites.

Termites don’t pose health risk to humans. However, they still need to be eliminated as soon as they are discovered. Otherwise, you just might witness your home slowly but surely being eaten away beyond repair.

To avoid serious termite infestations, take preventive measures through regular inspections, installation of termite barriers and constantly being aware of termites, especially in a suburb like Nudgee that is a hive of termite activity.

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Nudgee is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Nudgee 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 Nudgee.

  • 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.
