Bonogin is a rural hinterland suburb in Gold Coast, Australia, located roughly 81 km away from Brisbane. As of 2016, it had 4,573 residents.
It is located on the edge of the Gold Coast hinterland, which features popular tourist attractions such as resorts, rainforest, lookouts and national parks.
Bonogin was first settled in the 1870s when early industries consisted of timber cutting and dairy farms, and later, banana planting.
The main tributary of Bonogin Creek starts in the Gold Coast hinterland. A regional park bushcare group works to conserve local plant species and restore the creek’s natural habitat.
Davenport Park, located within Bonogin, runs along a lower point of the Bonogin Creek.
Nestled in a lush packet of subtropical rainforest environment, Bonogin offers a serene lifestyle, with residents living close to nature and views across the Gold Coast.
It remains close to vital amenities including hospitals, shopping centres and train stations.
Being situated in a hinterland is a beautiful experience, but it also has its cons – in the form of pests. Bonogin properties are open to pest infestation, if owners overlook the dangers of spiders, termites, ants and other pests.
Ants are found around the world, except Antarctica. They eat almost anything, from sweets to meats. Ants are a challenging species because of their many subspecies. Queensland is home to the largest number of subspecies of ants in the world.
The species commonly found in Queensland are Carpenter Ants, Caribbean Crazy Ants and Fire Ants. The most basic method to control ants is proper household maintenance. Ants are very hardworking, so they will search for food and gain access to your house to get it and bring it back to their colony.
Australia is home to over 450 subspecies of cockroaches. Cockroaches are hardy and highly adaptable, making them difficult to eliminate. They can survive in any climate and environment. Cockroaches can also eat anything, from paper to stale food o dead cockroaches.
Because of the environment where they are usually found, either searching for food or hiding, cockroaches are dirty and carry viruses and bacteria in their bodies. Cockroaches can spread various diseases including diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, and more.
Spiders have an undeserved bad reputation. In truth, most spiders are harmless and should be left alone as they play an important role in the environment. The common species of spiders found in Australia are Mouse Spider, Red Back Spider and Harvestman Spider.
These insects spend their day spinning webs and crawling around looking for food. They tend to avoid humans. Most of the common spiders in Australia aren’t considered as pests. They only start to become a problem when spiders start spinning their webs in your home.
There are species that can be deadly because of their venomous bites. These are the funnel web, red-back and white-tail species. These venomous spiders are dangerous around the elderly, children and pets.

Rodents might be small, but they can cause significant damage to health and property, if ignored. These gnawing mammals, which include rats and mice, are omnivores and will eat just about anything. Rodents can adapt to different environments and will easily invade a house for shelter.
The common types of rodents in Australia are the Brown Rat and Black Rat. Most common pest rodents are introduced species, which include Norway Rat (Brown Rat), Roof Rat (Black Rat) and the House Mouse. These rodents multiply quickly so that a few of them can easily become an infestation in a short amount of time.
Silverfish are silver/grey in colour and shaped like a fish. These wingless pests have also been called “bristletails” because of the three, long bristle-like appendages on the end of their body. They are nocturnal and are most likely to be found in dark, humid areas.
They don’t bite, but they are destructive because of their diet. They feed on items containing starches, such as book bindings, wallpapers, photos, carpets, and more. They also don’t spread diseases, but can contaminate food.
Termites are challenging to find and eliminate. This is because they can remain hidden for a long time while slowly eating away at the foundation of your house.
Termite infestation is a constant threat in Australia, where about 32% of all houses are experiencing some termite activity, roughly 130,000 homes annually. This makes termite detection and eradication essential for all property owners.

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