Pest Control in Tingalpa

Tingalpa is a Brisbane suburb, located 10 km from the CBD. It had 8,290 residents as of the 2016 Census.

One of its main features is the Tingalpa Creek, which lies 5 km east. It is located at the intersection of Wynnum and Manly Roads.

It is a beautiful, family-friendly residential suburb that is surrounded by parklands. A number of parks and bushland can also be found in the suburb, including the Meadowlands Park and Minnippi Park. Bulimba Creeks cuts through these parks on its way to the Brisbane River.

The properties consist of older style homes constructed during the post war period – specifically weatherboard and chamferboard post war cottages. A good portion of the new estates comprises low set and high set brock and tile homes. The land that is now being developed into residential zones was originally assigned to small farmlets and semi-industrial developments.

Tingalpa is conveniently located and offers something for everyone – good schools, a broad range of shops and dining options, public transportation and other amenities.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Do you have a pest problem in your Tingalpa property? Call a licensed pest exterminator to diagnose and treat the problem. They provide effective and long-term solutions for eliminating various pests such as ants, spiders, cockroaches, termites, and more.

Ant Control

Out of the more than species of ants that can be found in Australia, only a few are considered as pests because they invade our homes and threaten our peace. Around Brisbane, some of the most common ant species are Fire Ants, Yellow Crazy Ants, Electric Ants and Garden Ants.

Pest ants, though not a major threat to human health and property, can significantly lower your quality of living and interfere in our daily routine. This is the reason an ant infestation should not be ignored despite the fact that ants are very common.

Cockroach Control in Tingalpa

Many people look at cockroaches in their space and see them only as an annoyance and ignore them. The truth is that cockroaches can be dangerous than we think.

There are three species of cockroaches that can be found in large numbers in Queensland homes and commercial buildings: American Cockroach, Australian Cockroach and German Cockroach.

Cockroach droppings and eggs have proteins that cause an allergic reaction in people. They also carry bacteria that causes diseases like salmonella, urinary tract infection, meningitis, etc. Cockroaches also invite other pests into your home and make you place unhygienic.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes post a serious threat to public health because one bite can transmit life-threatening, oftentimes, fatal diseases. These include malaria, Dengue Fever, Japanese encephalitis, chikungunya, which have claimed millions of lives through the years.

In Australia, the common mosquito-borne diseases are Australian encephalitis, Barmah Forest virus diseases and Ross River virus diseases.

There are a number of species of mosquitoes, but only a few (only the female mosquitoes) of them bite humans and transmit diseases.

Spider Control

There are thousands of species of spiders in Australia, but only 3,600 species have been named. A good portion of them is harmless and don’t live where humans live.

The most common spider species in Queensland are: Black House Spider, Brown Huntsman Spider, Grey Huntsman Spider, White-tailed Spider, Daddy Long Legs Spider and Wolf Spider.

Each of these species has distinct habits and characteristics and present different problems to people. Some species deliver a venomous bite, which requires immediate medical attention. Other species spin webs, which can make a home look unsightly and messy.

Termite Control in Tingalpa

Termites don’t pose a health risk, but the economic impact they can cause can be extensive and expensive. The most common species of termites in Queensland are: subterranean termites and dry-wood termites.

The highly destructive Subterranean termites cause structural damage that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars of repairs. Aside from wood, termites also eat books, paper, insulation, filtration systems, wooden furniture, etc.

The wooden structure that has been damaged by termites can be used as entry point by other pests, which bring a different set of problems for homeowners. The signs of termite infestation may not be obvious for a long time. This is why it is important to have regular termite inspections, aside from installing termite barriers around the property.

Rodent Control

There are various economic and health issues associated with rodent infestation in homes and commercial properties. As soon as you see rodents or signs of rodent infestation in your home, call a professional pest control service immediately.

They carry pathogens that cause diseases such as leptospirosis, plague, salmonellosis, and more. These are acquired through direct contact or by consuming rodent-contaminated food.

Rodents can damage property and personal belongings and compromise the hygiene and cleanliness of interior spaces with their droppings, bodily fluids, etc.

If you are building a new home, renovating or buying a home in Chandler, you will need to consider what termite prevention solutions are available. Our company offers all types of solutions including physical and chemical barriers as well as reticulation systems. You can reach us on


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

Because Tingalpa 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 Tingalpa.

  • 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.
