Part of its western border is located along the Pacific Motorway and a large portion is protected by the Daisy Hill Conservation Park, which was the Daisy Hill State Forest before it was gazette in 2006.

The park is rated as one of the best mountain bike riding areas in the country.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Daisy Hill is one of the best suburbs in Logan City, but anyone who is considering moving here should be aware that it also attracts various pests because of its environment, climate and other factors.

Termite Control 

Properties in Daisy Hill face serious termite infestation. If you are a homeowner here it is a good idea to have your home inspected for termites at least once a year. It is also a good idea to have a termite barrier installed, if you still haven’t.

A termite barrier is a good idea due to the many factors going against Daisy Hill. One, most of the homes were built 25-30 years ago and feature slab on ground with the outside brick wall base set in the soil. This gives termites access to the home without the knowledge of the occupants. In addition, the original termite control solutions might have already expired.

Two, Daisy Hill is an established suburb, having been settled in the 1870s. This means the gardens are old, so there could be old tree stumps and big trees that could be hiding termite nests in your yard or your neighbours’.

Three, many parks in Daisy Hill are dominated by eucalyptus trees that are common places for termite colonies. This is particularly true because the suburb is near the Daisy Hill State Forest and the origins of the Priest Gully Creek.

Cockroach Treatment 

Cockroaches love moisture and damp areas. For this reason, you are likely to find them in bathrooms and kitchens – places where hygiene and sanitation are very essential. In bathrooms, shower curtains that are not regularly scrubbed will develop mildew. Cockroaches will use this mildew to survive. And in the kitchens if appliances are not regularly cleaned, it will attract cockroaches, not only because of the moisture but also because of the leftover or spilled food there.

These pests may be most active at night, but most people will notice if cockroaches are present in their property. If you see one, there is more hiding in the damp areas of your home. It is important to undertand why cockroaches go to a certain spot and the things that attract them. Professional pest specialists will know these things and will recommend a treatment that will eradicate cockroaches in your home once and for all.

Rat Control

Rats are native to Australia and one of the pests that pose a significant threat to public health. The harm they can cause is varied, from diseases to property manage. They are vectors for different diseases, including rat-bite fever and leptospirosis. Their nesting habits and need to constantly chew can do significant damage to property.

There are over 60 different rat species in Australia, most of live in a variety of habitats. Black and brown rats are the two most common species found in suburban Australia. In Daisy Hill, it is very common to see roofs and use shredded debris to build their nest. Norway rats are large, brown sewer rats. They are usually found in the bushes in urban areas and grey or back climbing rats and Norway rats. Black rats are usually found in urban areas. They nest on dwell near human habitat.

You don’t want rats infesting your home as they can cause physical damage, food spoiling and pollution. They are even known to cause house fires, due to rat-bitten electrical wirings.

Rats are prolific breeders, so a pair of rats in your home will grow in number quickly. It is best to have a qualified pest exterminator deal with your rat infestation to ensure a successful treatment.

Spider Treatment

Most spiders are not dangerous. Spiders play an important ecological by keeping insect population in check as they hunt for insects like flies for their meal.

You can probably deal with a one or two spiders on your own. However, if you’re dealing with a serious infestation, the smartest thing to do is leave the job of removing spiders to professionals. There are various species of spiders in Australia, each exhibiting different traits and behaviours. It’s not recommended for you to handle spiders if you don’t their species. Licensed pest removal specialists can easily identify the species of spiders and will know the best way to deal with them.

If you are building a new home, renovating or buying a home in Daisy Hill, 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

  • 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.
