Pest Control in Wilston

This residential suburb in Brisbane is located 5.1 km north of the Brisbane CBD. Originally a rural area, Wilston has transformed into a true gem of a suburb, with lush parklands and a relaxed lifestyle.

It is one of the most beautiful suburbs in Brisbane, boasting of open green surroundings and a friendly, family-oriented vibe. Located on the outskirts of bustling Brisbane, Wilston is popular not only among couples and singles but also professionals and singles. The older demographic loves Wilston’s peace and quiet and its proximity to the Herston medical precinct. The younger demographic likes Wilston because of it is near all the bar and club action in Fortitude Valley and the Brisbane CBD.

Wilston’s main road, Newmarket Road, is a semi-industrial strip linking the residents to nearby suburb Newmarket. Just outside commercial precinct, the vibe completely changes into tree-lined streets with traditional homes and small boutique stores scattered all throughout the residential area.

There are some cafes and restaurants in the suburb. The locals go to Wilston Village on Kedron Road for their daily needs and coffee run.

Wilston offers a mix of modern and traditional styles of architectures, from workers’ cottages to contemporary houses on Wilston Hill. The serenity that Wilston offers is a welcome change from the bustle of the nearby city, giving residents a peaceful sanctuary with a family-friendly atmosphere.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

This family-friendly suburb with its lush greenery and peaceful vibe is not safe from destructive and annoying pests. Constant vigilance is needed if you want to maintain a pest-free home. And if you are facing any type of pest infestation, it is best to let a professional pest control service handle it.

Bird Control

In a rural setting such as Wilston, birds are common, and some species could create problems. These problems include harms related to their faeces, the transmission of diseases and attractant of pests including fleas, ticks and cockroaches. Bird faeces are not only unsightly but may ruin a business’s brand or reputation.

Introduced species such as the feral pigeons, house sparrows, common starling and Indian Myna can destroy the local wildlife and eco-systems. Some native protected Australian birds, on the other hand, such as the cockatoo, ibis, ducks, parrots, magpies, crows and swallows can be pests when their activities are destructive.

The process of bird control in Wilston can be complex because it must be humane and must follow local laws. Pest control professionals understand the specific challenges associated with the common bird species and can provide customised solutions for bird control.

Termite Control in Wilston

Termites are a serious problem in Wilston and throughout Queensland. One in five Australian homes are impacted, causing roughly $100 million in damages annually. Queensland’s warm, humid subtropical climate is ideal for termites, which can destroy a home in less than 12 months. This is because these wood-eating pests feed 24/7 throughout the year.

Termites live in colonies with different castes, including workers, soldiers, and the queen and king. Each has a role related to the colony’s survival and maintenance. Termites are especially destructive to human-made structures, such as timber dwellings.

If you are struggling with termite infestation, call a qualified pest control technician to conduct inspection and a termite treatment that suits your situation.

Rodent Control

A rodent infestation, if left untreated, can cause serious damage to property. Rat teeth grow continuously and at a fast rate, so they’re constantly gnawing on any household materials including wires, furniture, clothes, and more. Rodents don’t have control over their bowel or bladder, so they will leave urine and droppings everywhere. Their droppings are toxic and can transmit diseases to humans.

If you have a problem with mice or rodents, setting traps can get rid of isolated rodents but will not completely eradicate the infestation. For a safe, reliable and effective rodent control, trust a qualified team of your local pest control company.

Ant Control

Ants work constantly looking for food to take back to their colony. The home is especially vulnerable to ant infestation because it provides the perfect ongoing food supply for ants. These sources include pet food bowls, indoor compost bins, breadcrumbs, etc.

The location of their colony will depend on the species of ants. Some species built their nest behind retaining walls, while others such as black ants, will have their colonies in garden beds, laws and vegetation. You may also find ants in your home or potted plants, especially during the rainy season.

The species of ants that are common in Wilston homes ate Black Ants, Coastal Brown Ants and Funnel Ants. Other common Wilston ants are Green Ants, Meat Ants and Sugar Ants.

Cockroach Control in Wilston

If you spot a cockroach in your home, there is plenty more that are hiding. Cockroaches live in a group and can lay up to 40 eggs at a time, which means their population can increase significantly in no time. Nobody wants cockroaches in their house because of their indestructible and dirty reputation. They can cause various issues, including health risks and property damage.

The types of cockroaches that are common in Wilston homes and other structures are the German Cockroach, American Cockroach and the Australian Cockroach. Contrary to their reputation, cockroaches can be eliminated – not by commercial insect sprays alone. You need professional assistance from licensed pest control technicians to ensure an effective treatment and control method for cockroach infestation.

Spider Control

Spiders are common in Wilston homes. Most species of spiders are harmless, though their webs can make a home look untidy and unsanitary. The other spiders pose a threat to your health because of their venomous bite, which can trigger allergic reactions in some people. This is the reason why we can’t just let spiders roam around our property.

If you have a spider problem, or are concerned about a potential spider attack, get professional spider control help. This is especially true if you have children or pets in your home. They are they are more likely to react badly to spider bites. With so many different species of spiders in Wilston, it is more effective and efficient to allow qualified pest control technicians to handle spider infestations.

Silverfish Control in Wilston

Silverfish, together with cockroaches, are among the most ancient species on the planets, even predating dinosaurs by 100 million years. However, that is only fun fact about them. Today, there are considered a household pest because of their troublesome feeding habits in residential properties.

They don’t pose a threat to human health, but they can destroy personal belongings made of paper, glue, or cloth. It could take a while to detect their presence, leading to an infestation that could cause irreparable damage to personal belongings in the long term.

They are active at night and prefer to hide in dark places during the day. Silverfish are usually found in bathrooms, garages, subfloors, and behind walls. They can be difficult to eliminate because they are small and quick and agile.

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

Because Wilston 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 Wilston.

  • 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.
