Throughout the year, a number of live events is held in Broadbeach, which attracts large crowds. These include the annual Blues on Broadbeach and Groundwater Country Music Festival. For kids, Dreamworld, Australia’s largest theme park, is just 21 km from Broadbeach.

Here are some of the pests that pose a threat to structures in Broadbeach.
Ants are tiny but they cannot be ignored as they present constant danger both to property and to people. These pests are always in search of food, so it’s easy to see them about in places like on the floor, bench tops, kitchen appliances, windows, skirtings, footpaths, driveways, windows, etc.
With over 1300 species of ants, treating ant infestations can be quite tricky. Solutions include the use of special baits and sprays each formulated for specific species of ants. Professional pest control experts are trained to identify, diagnose and treat pest infestations with advanced treatments and solutions.
Cockroaches ae one of the oldest creatures on earth, which gave them resiliency in any type of condition and environment. There are over 3000 species of cockroaches in the world. Fortunately, only a few are considered as pests.
Most of the cockroaches in Australia are introduced species. The species that are common here are the American, Australian and German Cockroaches. Not only a nuisance, these pests are dangerous health-wise as they can spread serious diseases such as dysentery, gastroenteritis, and more.
There are thousands of species of spiders in Australia. Some of them are non-aggressive, but there are also species with a venomous bite. Any spider bite should be treated seriously, and that means giving it proper medical attention immediately because anti-venom could be needed by the patient.
Some of the most prominent spiders in Australia in the Northern Rivers and South East Queensland are the Northern Rivers Funnel-web, Redback Spider, White-tailed Spider, Black House Spider, Huntsman and Daddy Long Legs.
Treatment of spider infestation can be complex because chemical solutions may not work. This is because spiders have minimal contact with surfaces, walking with most of their torso and abdomen off the ground. Treatment needs to target the spider or their webs, which only professional pest control experts can do.

Mosquitoes are a common problem in Australia. Aside from being annoying because of their constant buzzing, they bite. It is not a harmless bite because it transmits viruses that lead to serious diseases such as Ross River Fever, Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever, and more.
These blood-sucking pests thrive in Australia’s sub-tropical climate. They are highly adaptable and prefer any water habitats including canals and swamps. Mosquitoes can even survive in standing water found in yards and gardens and in any items that can collect water such as bird baths, rain water tanks, roof gutters, pot plant saucers, etc.
Termites are a major and constant threat in Australian properties. According to CSIRO, about 32% of all houses in Australia presently have some termite activity, or approximately 130,000 homes annually. This makes termite pest detection and eradication a high priority for homeowners.
A termite colony doesn’t have to be near your home for it to become a threat. Wood-eating termites can travel far from their colony to a structure and gain access via any cracks at ground level, such as a break in mortar joints. They prefer to stay underground, so they can remain undetected for a long time.
The wingless and agile silverfish prefer humid environment. Moisture is essential for them to survive and the warm weather lets them multiply fast.
The nocturnal silverfish avoid light, so they would usually be found in bathrooms and laundry areas. However, they can also be found at the bottom of wardrobes. If they are ignored, they can cause significant damage to clothing, books, photos, documents and other personal belongings.
Rodents are destructive because as omnivores they can eat all types of food as well as household objects. They have continuously growing incisors that require them to gnaw on items they encounter such as furniture, plasterboard, electric wires, etc. to keep the length at a manageable level.
An effective rodent infestation treatment can only be done by pest control specialists. It starts with a thorough inspection of the premises to determine entry points into the structure and the type of rodent the property owner is dealing with. Licensed pest control specialists can recommend the most effective trap or bait to treat rodent infestation.

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