Pest Control Kangaroo Point

Kangaroo Point is an inner southern suburb in Brisbane, located across the Brisbane River.

According to the 2016 Census, the suburb had a population of 8,063 people.

There are two major attractions in Kangaroo Point: Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs. On the eastern border is the Captain Cook Bridge, which marks the beginning of the Pacific Motorway.

Known for its pubs and vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle, Kangaroo Pint is the destination for recreational activities on the inner-city peninsula.

Bordered by water on three sides, the suburb is a narrow peninsula that pushes into the Brisbane River. It offers some of the best views in Brisbane – across the city and the iconic Story Bridge.

A significant portion of the riverbank is dedicated to public parks, running tracks, bike paths and spaces for recreational activities. Kangaroo Point Cliffs is the site for cliff-side abseiling programs. The Kangaroo Point Stairs is the favourite of fitness enthusiasts for their daily challenge.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Having pests in your home is always bad news. Pests can contaminate your spaces and compromise not only the hygiene of the place but also the health of its occupants. A major pest infestation is an emergency and should be resolved by professional pest technicians.

Cockroach Control in Kangaroo Point

Cockroaches are prevalent in Kangaroo Point, with one in two homes dealing with cockroach problems.

The presence of cockroaches is disgusting and disturbing because they are dirty and nasty insects. Cockroaches hide in the concealed areas of your house where you ignore most of the time. Thus, it’s difficult to spot cockroaches.

Having cockroaches in your home is problematic because they carry a lot of diseases that they can transmit to humans.

Ant Control in Kangaroo Hills

Ants are common, especially during the summer months. There are thousands of ant species, but only a few are considered as pests.

Two types of ants that are of concerned are the Black Ants and the Coastal Brown Ants, which build large colonies in and around properties. These nests, which ants build in the dirt, woods, under pavers, wall cavities or roofing gaps, can remain standing for a long time.

Ants can travel long distance in search of food and water. Most species of ants will take the food and water back to their nest.

Ants can be active all-year round. Ant activity typically increases during periods of high humidity. Ants will typically be found crawling in your cupboards, bathroom, wall surfaces, near electrical outlets and anywhere where food and water can be found.

Ant control in the gardens may also necessary to stop them from gaining entry into your home.

Ants can be a pest not only because they are unsightly but they contaminate food. Some species bite, extremely painfully so, like the fire ants, bulldog ants and green ants.

There are also species that are capable of damaging wall cavities, electric equipment, and roof gaps.

Spider Removal

There are hundreds of spider species in Australia. Some are dangerous and others are harmless.

The most common spiders that pest control technicians treat are:

  • Garden Wolf Spider – ground-dwelling spider that is most common in the southern and eastern states. They are not aggressive but will bite when threatened.
  • Redback Spider – can be found all over Australia. Characterised with a distinctive red stripe on top of their abdomen, the female is more lethal than the male. These spiders are commonly found in hidden, completely dry areas like garbage bins, logs and sheds.
  • White-tail Spider – primarily found in Southeast Australia, this species is mostly lives on the ground and feeds on other spiders. It is common in Southeast Australia, hiding in cabinets, restrooms and holes.
  • Huntsman Spider – Found in most parts of Australia, this species mainly lives indoors or under barks of trees or in cars. It is considered the biggest species of spiders. Though non-aggressive, Huntsman’s bite can be quite uncomfortable.

Spiders are nocturnal and so will only be spotted at night when they are searching for food (i. e. other insects). They tend to be more active during the colder months, as they emerge from their secret locations in search of a friend. They hibernate from autumn until spring.

Kangaroo Point Rodent Control

Rodents can damage homes as well as businesses, resulting in thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs. They are omnivores, so they will eat human food and household items.

Their constantly growing incisors compels them to gnaw anything they encounter, including electrical wires, house framing, furniture, doors, plaster boards.

The types of rodents that are common in residences and businesses:

  • House mouse – the culprit in mouse plague in Australia, this species prefers dry locations, so they are more likely to be found in roofs, ceilings, furniture, wall surfaces and even outdoors.
  • Norway Rat – Also called brownish rat, water rat or drain rat, they can live both indoors and outdoors, living in sewers, around rivers. They also dig burrows in the ground. They are the biggest out of all rodent species.
  • Roof Rat –The smallest among the rodent species, are usually found in roof areas. They are non-aggressive, but are quick and excellent climbers.

Rodents are nocturnal animals, so they are mostly active at night. They are considered pests because of the damage they can do on properties and the health risk they pose. Rodents can spread various diseases, including leptospirosis, Hantavirus, typhus, and more.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes breed in still water. They can multiply fast because eggs can develop into adult mosquitoes in a matter of six to 10 days.

These pests normally bite at dawn and sunset. This is the time of day when their internal clock says it’s time to feed.

Mosquitoes can make life unpleasant because they bite and make that high-pitched buzzing. Only the females bite to suck blood from humans. The males feed off the nectar found in plants.

Mosquitoes are quite common in Australia, but it doesn’t mean it’s has stopped being unpleasant being around them. Here, it is not common for mosquito bites to transmit diseases. What bites bring is the potential for skin inflammation.

Termite Treatment in Kangaroo Point

There are about 360 species of termites in Australia, including the subterranean termites and the drywood termites.

They are silent and prefer to stay hidden, so you are more likely to see signs of termite presence instead of seeing the actual insects.

With so many species, pest control specialists need to identify which species has invaded your property in order to employ the right treatment.

Clicking sounds within the walls of your home. Discarded insect wings in your window sill or doors. Hollow sounds when you tap the timber in your home. Doors or windows not closing properly. Pencil-width tunnels or mud tubes around your property or exterior walls of your property. These are just a few signs that you might be dealing with a termite problem.

If you are building a new home, renovating or buying a home in Kangaroo Point, you will need to consider what termite prevention solutions are available. Our company offers all types of solutions including physical and chemical barriers as well as reticulation systems. You can reach us on

TERMITE INFESTATION IN KANGAROO POINT QLD

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

Because Kangaroo Point is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Termite Images Suburb

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 Kangaroo Point.

  • 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.
