Below are a few of the pests that have the potential to be a problem for owners of residential and commercial buildings in Seven Hills.
Cockroaches are a menace when it comes to health. They move in dirty places, collecting harmful microorganisms like viruses and germs along the way. People can get sick if they consume food that has been contaminated by cockroaches.
This is why cockroaches should be prevented and treated immediately, if it does occur. You might not see cockroaches if the level of infestation. An infestation is likely to be discovered in dark zones that cannot be reached by natural or artificial light.
If the level of cockroach infestation is nearing an alarming level, you will find plenty of pellets of cockroaches and smell a musty odour, especially in places that cockroaches frequent. With so many species of cockroaches, it’s best to let professional pest exterminators deal with them.
Because of their tiny size, ants are often overlooked and so the issue of ant infestation is often not addressed. Ants live in nest or colonies and are grouped according to their function in their home.
An ant colony can be big, housing millions of ants. Their sense of sense is very strong, allowing to easily find leftover food or opened jar of sugar in your kitchen.
Ants are not known to cause physical damage to buildings. But since they got to filthy places in their hunt for food, they carry toxic germs on their small bodies.
If you see an ant or a few ants inside or outside your property, treat it as a sign that there could be an infestation happening somewhere in your place. If this situation arises, call for professional assistance from a pest control company to locate the infestation and apply the appropriate treatment.
A rodent infestation is to be taken seriously because they are a health threat. They hang out in dirty places when foraging for food. When rodents enter your home, they carry the germs that they have picked up from those dirty places.
When you come in contact with items that have been contaminated by rodents, you can acquire diseases such as hantavirus and plague, which can be life threatening.
Don’t ignore the sight of a dead rodent. This could mean that you have a rodent infestation in your home. Check for scratching sounds in your walls or roof or sight of droppings, or smell of a strange, musky odour. These are signs that you may be a dealing with a serious rodent infestation.

Spiders feed on other insects, not human food. But still, they can contaminate your food by crawling on it and then you, accidentally consuming the food.
Another health concern is that there are species of spiders that bite. Species like funnel-web spiders, redback spiders, etc. deliver a painful and venomous bite. Their bite can be deadly, so immediate medical attention is required.
Using an insect spray to kill spiders may not be effective. It could kill only the spiders that the spray caught. The rest could scatter around to escape and find another part of your home where they cannot be disturbed.
Termites are probably the only wood-eating insect that people know. And it is a fact that termites are capable of consuming all the wooden items in a home, if they are left alone.
Like ants, termites live in a nest or colony, where there is a queen, king and workers. The worker termites are responsible for feeding the entire colony, so they will be the ones invading homes.
In Queensland, where termites are prevalent, property owners are advised to install physical termite barriers around their property and do a regular termite inspection annually. If there is a termite inspection, call a qualified pest control technician to handle the problem.
Wasps don’t pose a threat to properties. But they are a danger to people because they sting when they are provoked. Their sting is very painful and so people can develop a severe allergic reaction to it.
It is hard to detect a wasp infestation if their nest is very far from your property. You will only notice any problem if you see wasps around your property. The wasp specie that are common in Australia include paper wasps, red wasps, wood wasps, etc.
If you suspect a wasp infestation or you happen to see a wasp nest, don’t attempt to remove the nest yourself. Call an experienced pest control technician to remove the nest safely and effectively.

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