Pest Control in Camp Hill

Camp Hill is an eastern suburb in Brisbane, with a population of 11,202 as of the 2016 Census. Located 6 km southeast of the CBD, the suburb has three mountains: Esquiline Hill, Sankeys Mountain and Whites Hill.

The suburb has a hilly terrain and is mostly residential, popular with families, young professionals and retirees.

Amenities are easily accessible, including retail shops, major shopping centres, restaurants and parks, which have sports fields, playgrounds, BBQ facilities, picnic areas and bushwalking paths.

There are different types of homes in Camp Hill. This leafy, quiet suburb has a mix of Queenslanders, colonials, post-war cottages and town homes, apartments and contemporary homes on large blocks. Being hilly, many homes have skyline views of the city.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Like other Brisbane suburbs, Camp Hill is also vulnerable to pest infestation because of various factors such as environment and climate. The common pests that residents might encounter include termites, rats, possums, cockroaches, ants, spiders, and more.

Termite Infestation

The suburb is in the top 10 worst suburbs for termites in Brisbane. Camp Hill has plenty of older style Queenslanders built on large blocks, with sections of bushland in between properties.

The abundance of timber in the suburb is heaven for termites. Another reason is that lots of the older homes are constructed on a slope, with brick tiers beneath, and with a decorative wooden lattice as a covering. Though it looks good, the lattices may be in contact with the ground, allowing termites to easily access the property.

Rat Control 

Camp Hill is one of several Brisbane suburbs that often experiences rat problems. In fact, rat experts say that locals are not more than 10 metres away from the presence of a rat in Brisbane. This is because rats love Brisbane’s subtropical climate.

They can sometimes be seen crossing the road, but most of the time they scamper around trees because they don’t like to stay on the ground. Rats live in roof spaces, and they can often be heard. Rats are not confined only in CBD areas. It’s not atypical to find them in parks, especially those with BBQ facilities, or in vacant inner-city lots.

Rats are considered as pests because they make a mess and leave behind a bad odour. They chew on everything all the time, including wiring and the timber on the ceilings. Rats are known to cause house fires due to chewed on wires.

There are many signs of a rat infestation, including problems with your air conditioner or flickering lights. If you have a rat problem, it’s best to have it handled by a qualified pest exterminator who has the experience and equipped with technology for resolving pest infestations.

When you’re dealing with cockroach infestation, it’s best to call professional pest company with well-trained technicians and the best technologies and solutions to get rid of your pest problem.

Spider Control

Spiders that are usually found in homes are not poisonous, but it’s not easy to distinguish a poisonous spider from a non-poisonous one. Since Australia is home to a wide variety of spiders, don’t put your life in danger by ignoring the presence of spiders in your home.

Generally, spiders are grouped into: webbing spiders and hunting spiders. Their main difference is that webbing spiders are not dangerous, while the hunting spiders are.

A few of the most common spiders include white tailed spiders, black house spiders, brown house spiders, Daddy long-legs spiders (big, but harmless and non-toxic), and funnel-web spiders (have fatal bites).

If you are having problems getting rid of webbing spiders in your home, contact your local pest control company.

TERMITE INFESTATION IN CAMP HILL QLD

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

Because Camp Hill 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 Camp Hill.

  • 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.
