Ransome is an outer coastal suburb in Brisbane, located 19.6 km by road east of the CBD. It has a population of 405 according to the 2016 Census.
It’s situated on the boundary with Redland City. Ransome is bordered by Moreton Bay to the north, Tingalpa Creek to the east, Chadwell Street to the south, and Lota Creek to the west.
Ransome has two residential zones, one on Rickertt Road and the other on Molle Road. The area close to the coast is undeveloped land. It’s called Ransome Reserve and has two unnamed island. The reserve has walking pathways, but they don’t go beyond the Cleveland railway line to the bay.
Ransome residents, as few as they are, also encounter pest problems because Brisbane’s natural environment and its climate allow various pests such as termites, rodents, spiders, and more to thrive.
Termites are one of the most destructive pests in the world because of the significant damage that they can do to a property. A property damaged by termites can run up thousands, even millions, of dollars’ worth of repairs.
They eat wood, which weakens the wooden parts of a property including the walls, frames and floorboards. They are called “silent destroyers” because they can eat away at your house without you noticing before significant damage has been done.
Ants live in colonies, which can exist for a very long time. These pests can pass through even the tiniest of cracks in search of food and water. When they find out, they leave behind an invisible chemical path that the other ants will follow.
They can be considered less harmful than other pests, but it is not good to see ants in your household or commercial property. You can prevent an ant infestation by properly storing food and immediately cleaning up spilled food or sweet beverages.
Wasps and similar insects play an important role in plant propagation. However, they are considered a pest because of their painful sting. Like ants and bees, wasps, live in nests and hives.
If you spot a wasp or two, carefully identify the exact location of their hive. Keep your food sources secured properly. Wasps love sugar- and protein-based foods, including pet foods.
When you discover their hive, don’t poke it or attempt to remove it yourself. Wasps attack when they feel threatened. Call a professional pest exterminator to remove the hive safely and effectively.
The most common cockroach species in the Brisbane area, including Ransome, is the German Cockroach. Cockroaches multiply fast and can be a major problem in your property. Their ability to adjust to their environment makes them difficult to exterminate.
Cockroaches are usually found in the smallest and darkest cracks and gaps in both residential and commercial properties. Cockroach infestation should be treated immediately because cockroaches are gross and dirty.
They are carriers of various pathogens that causes different diseases. In fact, cockroaches have been identified as the culprit in the spread of more than 30 diseases, including gastroenteritis and salmonella.
Silverfish are common in Ransome households because of the area’s humid climate. If you don’t know what silverfish looks like, you most likely have seen evidence of their occupancy.
They love paper product such as cardboard, books and even stored documents. Silverfish also gnaw at clothing, resulting in holes, and they contaminate floors, sinks and bathtubs.
Rats and mice are another species of pests that can easily adapt to any type of environment. This makes them difficult to catch and kill.
They can easily squeeze themselves into small spaces and they possess an excellent muscle memory, allowing them to memorise spaces using their body and muscle movements.
They are also prolific breeders and pose a danger to human health because they carry different bacteria and pathogens that cause various diseases.

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