Chermside is a Brisbane suburb, located 9.8 km north of the Brisbane CBD.
This suburb has become known as a mini CBD, not only because of its proximity to the larger CBD but the various entertainment options it has to offer, including cinemas, shops and cafés and restaurants.
It is also home to Australia’s biggest Westfield Shopping Center, a foodie’s dream where a broad range of services is offered, from simple snacks to sit-down meals.
A wide demographic will find Chermside appealing, thanks to its excellent public transport and schools. It is an excellent location, if you’re after a wide range of amenities and still want easy access to the city.
The best area of Chermside is around Alleena St, where two large parks and uninterrupted view of the city.
Medium and large families will find Chermside appealing with its sprawling brick homes on large blocks scattered throughout the area. There are many dwelling types to choose from, from modern, eclectic houses and apartments to the iconic Queenslander-like style homes typically made of steel, stone and plaster.
As one of the fastest growing suburbs in Brisbane and the location of the largest Westfield Shopping Centre, Chermside is more vulnerable to pest infestation now more than ever. More people and more property development means more opportunities for pests like rodents, cockroaches, ants, and more to invade buildings in search of food and water.
Being social insects, ants live in colonies, which can remain standing for a long time. They can build their nest anywhere and enter through the tiniest gaps in search of food and water. Once they spot food, they leave an invisible chemical path so that other ants can follow.
While ants may be deemed less threatening compared to other pests, their presence in where you live can still cause harm to your property and health.
The common species of ants in Australia include: Black ants, Brown ants, Bull ants, Carpenter ants, Fire ants, Funnel ants, Garden ants, Ghost ants and Pavement ants.
Termites cause more damage in Australian properties each year than floods and fires combined. They’re interesting, but highly destructive. You’d be seeing thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs, before you realize that your property has been invaded by them.
This is a problem because most building and contents insurance in Australia will not cover property damage caused by termites.
In Queensland, there are two common species of termites: subterranean termites and dry-wood termites. Subterranean termites are the most destructive, as they can cause structural damage to properties that can run up to thousands of dollars in repairs.
Aside from wood, termites also feed on books, papers, swimming pool liners, filtration systems, insulation, and more.
The wooden structures attacked and damaged by termites may create doors that other pests can use to enter your property.
The thought of sharing spaces with spiders is terrifying to a lot of people. At the very least, spiders take away the feeling of comfort you should when you’re inside the four walls of your home.
Spider control is important, especially in a country like Australia where they are abundant, where species range from the most dangerous to the tamest.
Some spiders spin webs, which they use to catch prey. Spider webs are unsightly and cast doubt on the cleanliness of your home. Spiders can spin webs rather quickly, so you might discover a wen has turned up overnight.
Some spiders have jaws and fangs big enough to pierce human skin. These bites have venom, which can be painful and even fatal. Spiders can also spread harmful bacteria to human through their bites.
Spiders are more active following a heavy downpour, as they ground nests may be destroyed and they will be in search for a new location.
The species that are common around Brisbane are: Funnel Web Spider, Brown Trapdoor Spider, Wolf Spider, Redback Spider, Black House Spider and Whitehail Spider.

Wasps are dangerous because they sting, which can be extremely painful and fatal to some people who develop an allergic reaction to its venom. It is important to be aware of these pests in or around your property of the danger they pose on property and human health.
You can help keep wasps away by making sure your food sources are secured. Wasps love sugar and protein-based food, including pet foods.
Like ants, wasps live in nests and hives. If you discover a hive, don’t poke it or attempt to remove it yourself. Call a professional with the experience and proper tools to do it.
There are thousands of cockroach species around the world. The most common species that causes the infestations discovered in Brisbane urban areas are the German cockroaches.
Cockroaches multiply quickly and they are highly adaptable, which make them difficult to exterminate. They can crawl and hide anywhere in your house, including in the tiniest and darkest of cracks and crevices.
There are obvious signs in a property that has been infested by cockroaches: faecal matter, dead cockroaches, egg cases, and body parts. Cockroaches also produce a foul odour, which you will typically smell in dark and damp areas.
These pests are the cause of the spread of more than 30 human diseases, including gastroenteritis and salmonella poisoning. These diseases can be avoided with a powerful and effective cockroach control solution.
Brisbane and its suburbs are vulnerable to silverfish infestation because of its natural humidity. You may not have an idea of what silverfish look like, but you most likely have seen evidence of their presence in your home.
Their main source of food are paper products, including books, cardboards and stored documents like papers and photographs. They can leave holes in your clothes and contaminate your kitchen sink, bathtubs or floors.
Rats and mice are types of rodents that can thrive in any environment. They can squeeze themselves into small spaces and they have excellent muscle memory, which they use to navigate spaces.
They are prolific breeders and pose a threat to human health because they carry pathogens that can cause various disease.
The Brisbane City Council advises the use of single-feed baits and traps to control rodents. But to make sure their population doesn’t go out of control, hire a professional pest control to carry out safe and family-friendly rodent control treatments and solutions.

High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Chermside is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Chermside 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 Chermside.
