Pest Control in Corinda

Corinda is a Brisbane suburb, located 9 km south-west of the CBD.

First settled in the 1860s as a small farming community, Corinda is bordered by the Brisbane River in the west and Oxley Creek in the east. This makes the suburb vulnerable, in major rain events, to flooding. There are also parts of Corinda that are vulnerable to landslip.

There are two main parks in the suburb, both bearing the same name but divided at either end of the suburb. The first is a forest reserve along the Brisbane River, which features Carrington Rocks and Carrington Boat Club. The second is on the floodplain of Oxley Creek close to the bowls club and state school.

The iconic Francis Lookout reserve features a small park where the Carols by Candlelight celebrations are held. The Sherwood Arboretum is located along its borders but is located in the suburb of Sherwood.

This popular family suburb features a mix of larger, older-style homes, Queenslanders, townhouses and low-density apartments built along a quiet, leafy environment. The scenic hilly part of Corinda offers views of Mt Cootha and the Brisbane city skyline. Many of its iconic Queenslanders date back to the time it was first settled.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Queensland’s climate, general area profile and other factors make for an ideal environment for various pests to thrive. So, it is no surprise that Corinda homes and other structures will experience visits, or worst infestation, from pests such as spiders, termites, rodents, mosquitoes, and more.

Termite Treatment 

Termites are common in Australia. In fact, the CSIRO survey puts Queensland as a high-risk zone for termite attacks. Corinda gets its fair share of termite invasion. Once termites get into your property, it is important to treat and remove them as quickly as possible. If you ignore the infestation, termites can easily cost thousands of dollars in property damage and repairs.

The Brisbane climate is perfect for termites to thrive, so it is important to have your property checked for termites at least once a year.

Cockroach Treatment 

It is distressing to see the sight of cockroaches in your house or place of business. They are unhygienic and vectors of infectious various diseases, including gastroenteritis, dysentery and more. Their droppings can trigger asthma, especially in children.

Food is the number one thing that attracts cockroaches. Keep cockroaches away by properly storing or disposing any leftover food and eliminating access to food. Cockroaches are nocturnal, so throw away your garbage every night.

Ant Treatment 

Ants don’t pose a big threat to health, but they can cause trouble and annoyance. They will search everywhere in your house for food and secure a place where they can build a nest. In a commercial setting like restaurants, ants are more than a nuisance. They can cost a lot of money and damage your reputation, especially if these businesses handle food and are required to operate a sterile environment.

Bird Proofing

The sounds of birds chipping is music to the ears. However, there are species of birds that can be a nuisance. They can damage the structure of your property and spread diseases. It is recommended to keep birds away rather than destroy the nests once they’re built. This is why you need to reach out to professional bird control experts to bird proof your home or building.

Rodent Control

Rodents pose a great health risk, not to mention their mere sight makes people flinch. Rats and mice prefer to scavenge or hang around rubbish bins, drains, sewers and other dirty places, where they pick germs and bacteria that cause various diseases. They then spread these pathogens to objects and surface they come in contact with such as food, storage areas, counters, etc.

Rodents can also destroy furnishings, upholstery, tapestries, clothing, books, electric wirings, and more. These critters are so tiny they can enter premises through small holes and cracks. When there is a suspected rodent infestation, the first step is to look for the opening where can they squeeze through to enter the premises. Sealing these openings will keep rodents away and allow you to treat the ones that are inside the premises.

Spider Treatment 

Fear of spiders is real, but in reality they are incredible creatures in that they play an important role in our ecosystem. They are natural pest controllers since they prey on other pests and insects such as mosquitoes and flies. However, much as spiders have this good reputation, it is still not okay to have your home invaded by spiders.

The summer is the sign for various species of spiders, particularly the more dangerous ones, to come out from their hiding places. It’s a great idea to find out what attract the spiders in your area the most and get rid of these things from your property. If there is no food source to be found in your premises, they will look elsewhere.

Wasp Treatment 

Wasps are common in both urban and rural areas throughout Australia. Parties and other public events tend to attract wasps because they love sweet foods and foods rich in protein. People and animals who get near a wasp nest can be stung if the worker wasps deemed them to be a threat to their home. But there are also cases in which wasps attack without being provoked.

A wasp bite is toxic, so it can trigger severe allergic reactions and even death, if the sting is not treated immediately. Setting that aside, wasps are important to the environment. Like bees, they pollinate plants. If you spot a wasp nest in your property, it is best to call a professional so the problem can be dealt with appropriately.

Silverfish Treatment 

Silverfish is that tiny and white insect that you find when you open a book that has been stored for a long time. These pests are usually found in old boxes, drawers and bookshelves. They feed on carbohydrates, especially starches and sugars. Silverfish are harmful because their insatiable feeding habits destroy papers, clothes and wallpapers.

Older than the dinosaurs, silverfish prefer moist and humid areas. In urban areas, they can be found hiding in storage rooms, basements, baths, sinks, kitchens, old books and showers.

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

Because Wynnum 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 Corinda.

  • 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.
