Pest Control in Taigum

Taigum is a northern suburb in the city of Brisbane. It is bordered to the west and north by Cabbage Tree Creek, to the east by Muller Road, and to the south by Beams Road.

Taigum is a small suburb but is home to 20 parks covering almost 9.7% of its total area.

This growing suburb offers a good neighbourhood and easily accessible amenities such as malls and train stations.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Taigum is a quiet, leafy suburb that is slowly gaining a reputation as one of the most sought-after suburbs in Brisbane. Even with a predominantly newly built contemporary homes, Taigum remains vulnerable to pest infestation. This is thanks to the area’s natural environment and generally perfect weather that different pests love.

Termite Control in Taigum

Termite can cause significant damage to property if the infestation is ignored and could cost you a lot of money to repair. These wood-eating pests are hard to detect because they live and work underground. Fortunately, they leave enough signs to alert homeowners know of their presence.

The most common sign of termite infestation is the presence of many discarded and broken wings, usually in basement windowsills and cobwebs. Another one is frass, or termite droppings, which look like mounds of black specks or dark powdery substance. A sign that the infestation is already severe is the presence of damaged, rotted or hollowed out wood. This suggests that termite has almost eaten the wood inside.

Hire a pest control service as they have a professionally trained eye to spot the signs of termite infestation, in addition to effective treatment to get rid of them.

Rodent Control

Rats and mice can cause major structural damages, health problems and safety concerns. Rodents must be treated immediately because the infestation could become full blown in no time because of their ability to multiply fast. The females can give birth to 24-72 babies a year, and those babies can start reproducing in as little as four weeks.

Rodents can gain access into structure through small gaps and crevices. In fact, rats are so small and flexible that they can squeeze through a hole as small as a quarter. They are also strong as they can chew through objects made of wood, aluminium, glass, wire and even cinderblocks.

You’ll know if you have a rodent infestation if you see rodent droppings and smell a musky, urine odours coming from the walls and basement. If you hear scampering or scratching noises from the floors, walls or ceilings, your first suspect should be rodents.

Cockroach Control in Taigum

Even the cleanest of homes is not immune to cockroaches. There are various ways they can get inside your home. Once they get in, they will make themselves comfortable with the easily accessible food and water in the house.

One of the obvious signs of cockroach infestation is when you spot a live or even a dead cockroach. You will usually see a cockroach or two when you turn on the lights at night, which is when they are active. You will also see droppings in damp areas, around food storage or bins, and bean-shaped brown egg cases.

Because cockroaches can spread diseases to humans, experts recommend that property owners don’t ignore the sight of cockroaches in their home. Call for professional assistance to eliminate cockroaches using effective solutions.

Spider Control

Either you love spiders, or you hate them. This seems to be the common public opinion when it comes to spiders. Either way, you don’t want your home to be infested with spiders. This is because spiders are one of the hardest household pests to keep track of and control due to their movements, behaviour and the ability to evade the more common treatments for bugs and vermin.

As a homeowner, there are spider control measures that you can do. You can keep up with the maintenance of spider webs, making sure they are removed immediately, and being vigilant about potential intruders. If you fear spiders and refuse to go near a web, call a professional pest control service for a quick, effective approach.

Ant Control in Taigum

Ants are social creatures that live in bests. Because there are roughly 3,000 species of ants in Australia, having a good knowledge of their feeding and nesting habits is the most effective way to control them. The ant nest also needs to be located and treated.

To get rid of ants, you must investigate. This involves following the ants’ trails back to their nest. This can be difficult if the trail leads to a grassed area. If this is something that you’re not confident in doing, call a licensed pest control service for effective ant control and treatment plans.

Silverfish Control

Silverfish is probably the one household pest that you don’t realise is there unless they get out of control, or if you happen to see them at night. They are quick and agile and won’t stick around for long to be caught.

The problem with silverfish is that they love starchy food that is usually found in paper and clothing. This is why silverfish will often be spotted in bookshelves or wardrobe. Silverfish they even make their way into your important documents and photo albums. These are personal belongings that are irreplaceable once damaged by silverfish.

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

Because Taigum 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 Taigum.

  • 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.
