Woolloongabba, a Brisbane suburb, is located 2 km south of the CBD. It is sandwiched between South Brisbane and Kangaroo Point.
It had 5,631 residents, according to the 2016 Census.
It was formerly called One Mile Swamp because the area was low lying and swampy. It was used until the early 1890s.
The suburb is home to the Brisbane Crickey Ground, which locals call the Gabba, and the Princess Alexandra Hospital. A number of major roads passes through Woolloongabba, including the Pacific Motorway, Logan Road and Ipswich Road.
Woolloongabba gives residents easy access to various amenities and good schools.
Woolloongabba is one of the hottest suburbs in Brisbane, with its proximity to the CBD and city views. Various amenities are also available including shops, restaurants, craft breweries, live performances and year-round sports at the Gabba.
Woolloongabba is one of the most sought-after suburbs in Brisbane because of its location and the recent transportation infrastructure upgrades. Unfortunately, this doesn’t eliminate the potential for pest infestation. Its very environment and climate allow many types of pests to thrive including rats, mice, termites, and more.
There more than 60 species of rodents in Australia, though there are just a few that are commonly found in suburban areas like Woolloongabba.
Rats and mice are always in search of food, water and shelter. If they see an opening to your home, they will take advantage of it. Rodents must be avoided at all costs because they can spread serious, even potentially fatal, diseases. They can also cause significant damage to property.
They also food spoilage when touched by rodents. With their constant gnawing, they can turn their sights on appliances and electrical cables and wires.
Here are the signs to watch out for to let you know if you’re dealing with a rodent infestation: scurrying and rustling noises within your walls or roof voids; a strange odour, which is rodent urine, and droppings; seeing a live rat or mice; and finding nests.
Aside from being scary to some people, spiders, at least a few species, are dangerous. Admittedly, spiders are beneficial to Australia’s ecosystem, but you still don’t want them invading your home.
Spiders will generally be found in warm, dark spaces such as air vents, wall cracks, and near outside lighting. To help keep spider number down, remove the spider webs around your home or business.
Spiders feed on other bugs, even their own. Thus, keep your surrounding clean and hygienic to keep bugs away.
Cockroach infestation is common in Brisbane and its suburbs, thanks to our warm, humid climate. They are one of the most resilient insects in the world, with the ability to adapt to any type of environment. They have survived for millions of years because of their adaptation skills.
There are more than 3000 species of cockroaches in the world. Here in Southeast Queensland, the species you are most likely are German Cockroach, American Cockroach and Oriental Cockroach.
They are primarily found indoors where they can enjoy warmer environments and where food sources and water are in abundance. It’s dangerous to have cockroaches in your home because they carry harmful bacteria and parasitic worms that can be transmitted to humans. These pathogens can cause asthmatic and allergic reactions as well as serious diseases.

Though they are small, ant should still be taken seriously. Ants don’t pose a major threat to your health, but it can be very irritating to see them inside and easily get into food that has been properly stored. Outdoors, they can build nests, which can house millions of ants. This can pose a risk of painful bites to children and pets.
You will know if there are ants in and around your home. They would congregate around sticky food residue. You will see a long line of ants travelling from the food source to their colony and vice versa. Unlike other insects that are secretive, ants don’t hide their activity under the cover of darkness.
A colony can contain up to half a million ants, so if you have an ant problem, it’s wise to treat it immediately.
Silverfish infestation can be difficult to treat. They may be tiny, but they can cause damage to carpets, linens, clothing, and more. Silverfish are nocturnal and prefers to hide from humans, so they would usually be found in dark spots.
It is nearly impossible to spot silverfish because of their small size and their secretive nature. However, there are signs that will tell you is silverfish is present in your home. You will see damage to your belongings, particularly those containing starch. You will also see droppings that look like peppercorns, shed skins and yellow stain.
If you’re lucky, you will see actual live silverfish. They frequent places such as kitchens, basements, garages, wardrobes and drawers.
Mosquitoes can be rea nuisance with their constant buzzing and biting, which can be painful and lead to skin irritation. What’s more, mosquito bites can be deadly. These blood-sucking pests have been the cause of millions of deaths throughout history.
Some of the diseases that can be caused by mosquitoes are Murray Valley encephalitis virus, Ross River virus, Barmah Forest virus and Dengue virus. The three most common symptoms of mosquito-borne diseases are Fever, Fatigue and Headache. If you’ve recently been bitten and are feeling these symptoms, seek medical help.
There are about 360 species of termites in Australia. The most common are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites. They are often mistaken for ants, but they are somewhat similar in appearance.
Termites prefer to hide their activity from humans, so you are more likely to sign of termite presence rather than the actual insects. Do you hear clicking sound within your walls? Do you see discarded wings near your doors or windows? Do you hear a hollow sound when you tap a wooden part of your home?
If you answer yes to these questions, your home is most likely infested with termites. These wood-eating pests have different species, which a pest control specialist needs to identify before recommending a control and treatment solution.

Because Woolloongabba 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 Woolloongabba.
