West End, an inner suburb of Brisbane, is located 1 km from the CBD. It was named after London’s West End because of their historical similarities.
As of 2016, it had a population of 9,474 people.
It is bordered by the median of the Brisbane River to the west and the south. West End is located next to South Brisbane and Highgate Hill. Together, these three suburbs make up a peninsula of the Brisbane River.
West End is known as one of Brisbane’s cultural hotspots, being close to the boundary of the South Bank cultural precinct and the Brisbane CBD.
It has a thriving nightlife scene as well as a host of cafes, bars and restaurants that are a magnet for locals and visitors alike. Most of the pubs, clubs and most popular music venues feature live music.
Having a thriving nightlife and its proximity to the CBD as well as several universities attracts a high student population, which gives the suburb a youthful atmosphere.
Meanwhile, the residential portion of West End features iconic Queenslander homes on large parcels of land built on higher grounds.
Combined with its proximity to the Brisbane River and its subtropical climate, West End is appealing to many different pests including termites, spiders, mosquitoes, and more.
If you’re dealing with a pest problem, call your local pest control professionals for control and treatment solutions.
Ants don’t cause as much damage as termites, but they still bring problems once a home or building is infested with them. They spoil the food supplies in the pantry or food left out in the kitchen or dining table. They can also cause damage when they get inside appliances and become a general nuisance with unpleasant trails on the floors and walls.
There are certain species of ants with painful stings and bites. Thus, it is important to prevent ants from entering your home. One way to keep ants away is by keeping your table tops, food preparation areas and cooking areas clean and free of any leftover foods.
You should also maintain general cleanliness by trimming overgrown shrubs and making sure garbage is disposed of properly.
Cockroaches have been a nuisance since time immemorial. They are one of the oldest insects on earth, thanks to resilience and strong adaptability.
In addition to being annoying, cockroaches are dirty and can transmit diseases to humans. This is because they search for food in unhygienic places like trash bins, sewer, etc.
Nobody wants to see cockroaches crawling over their kitchen, food and personal items like toothbrushes. Getting in contact with cockroach-contaminated objects may cause diarrhea or something more serious.
If your home becomes overrun with these dirty critters, call a cockroach pest control expert.
Mosquitoes are everywhere in a region with a subtropical climate like Brisbane. They are mostly active at dusk and dawn.
Their bites can cause skin irritation and diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, Ross River fever and Barmah Forest virus infection that can infest both humans and animals. It is therefore important to have proper mosquito control and preventive measures in place.

Like cockroaches, rats and mice are dirty and carry pathogens that cause various diseases. A rodent infestation should be addressed immediately because a couple of rats or mice can become a huge family in a matter of weeks.
This is because a female can produce as many as 15 offspring twice a year. If one rat is dangerous, imagine a horde of them invading your home. Aside from carriers of diseases, rodents can also compromise the foundation of a building with their chewing habit.
Because of their need to control their incisors, which are constantly growing, they gnaw on just about everything, including electric cables. Damaged electric cables can lead to fire and damage to property.
These eight-legged creatures can make a home appear unhygienic because of the cobwebs they spin and insect carcasses. There are some species of spiders with a deadly bite. There is an effective anti-venom for spider bites, but the key is giving immediate medical attention to the patient.
Termites date back more than 100 million years. Though they are often mistaken for ants, they are closely related to cockroaches.
These wood-feeding insects are useful to the environment with their role in the recycling of organic matter and nutrients back to the soil. However, they are destructive once they gain access to a building and its wooden components.
Termites prefer the dark and thus rarely come out in the open. They are usually found within wooden structures or objects where they leave a wafer-thin layer to conceal themselves. They also hide within mud-like tubes, which they use to travel from their nest to their target structure.

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