Pest Control in Carina Heights

Carina Heights is both a hill and a suburb in Brisbane City. Located 10.1 km southeast of the CBD, Carina Heights is bordered by the suburbs of Camp Hill, Carina, Carindale, Mansfield, Mount Gravatt East and Holland Park.

The hill is located on the northeast corner of the suburb, measuring 36 metres above sea level. To the south is Pine Mountain, at 106 metres above sea level. It is part of Whites Hill Reserves, situated in the southwest portion of Carina Heights and extends into Camp Hill.

Carina is a quiet and safe suburb with a mix of modern townhouses and units and post-war homes on large blocks. The properties on the hilltop are built on large blocks and offer beautiful views of the city and the surrounding area.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Carina Heights is a very lush established suburb with plenty of parks and wide tree-lined streets. Surrounded by natural bushland, it’s common to see possums and wake up to birds chirping in the morning. But this beautiful surrounding can also come with a disadvantage in the form of pests, such as ants, spiders, ticks, termites, – and even the cute-looking possums can be a nuisance pest.

Termite Infestation Risk

Carina Height homes are at risk of termite attack for several reasons. The homes there are over 60 years on average. This means whatever chemical treatment had originally been put in place has long expired or has been damaged due to the many works and renovations that had been done to the place, giving termites access inside.

Being an established suburb is good, but it also means the gardens are old. There are old tree stumps that may have termite nests in your garden or your neighbour’s. Carina Heights also has plenty of parklands with many eucalyptus trees that commonly shelter termites.

The suburb is a high-risk area for termite attack especially because of its proximity to White Hills Reserves.

Cockroach Control

If you see one cockroach, there is no doubt that many more are hiding all around your home. You will normally find these pests in food preparation areas like the kitchen. This allows them to feed on any food scraps that may be left behind after cooking. They hide in the cracks and crevices in walls and other dark areas because they don’t like the light.

Cockroaches are commonly found near plumbing and waste pipes, including sewage and stormwater pipes. Cockroaches carry diseases and, as they roam your home, they contaminate your food, dinner set and kitchen utensils.

Rodent Control 

Once mice and rats enter your home, they will find their way into your most treasured possessions like boxes of photos, favourite old clothes, baby items. They will gnaw and shred these items to make a comfortable nest for their family.

Rodents are prolific breeders, with female rats able to produce as many as 84 offspring per year. Their front teeth never stop growing, so they must gnaw on objects to keep them down short.

Rodent pest control must be taken seriously because you can pick up diseases if you come in direct contact with their dry urine. Rodents also chew on electrical wirings, which can lead to a fire.

If you’re having issues with rodents, call a professional pest control company to recommend the best solutions for your rodent infestation.

Ant Control

One of the most common house ants is the black ants. They can be found anywhere on the property, including kitchens, lawns, gardens and roof voids. Black ants can be tenacious because they gain access into your home it may not be easy trying to get rid of them.

A topical pest control treatment may work for a brief period, but in some cases, it can make the problem worst. This is because these treatments bank on the ants walking over or eating the treatment. However, once ants recognise the bait laid out for them, they can simply evade it and continue to live in their colony. For effective results, call a qualified pest control specialist.

Spider Infestation

Spiders can be scary (there is even a phobia named after it), but the truth is they are great natural pest controllers of those insects that annoy and bite us during summer. It is also a fact that some species of spider can bite and cause serious illness, and even death. Fortunately, it’s been decades since a person died of a spider bite because of the availability of anti-venom.

If you have a spider infestation, call a professional pest controller who can identify the species of spider and recommend the most effective treatment and control.

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

Because Carina Heights 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 Carina Heights.

  • 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.
