This outer north-western suburb in Ipswich is located 5 km from the city centre.
From a bushland and farming area, Brassall has undergone a rapid and extensive development that saw the construction of housing estates.
As of 2016, the suburb had 1,898 residents, which mainly consist of retirees, young families and defence personnel.
Brassall’s location makes it vulnerable to flooding as what transpired in 2011. Its western boundary is Ironpot Creek and the waters from two tributaries of the Mihi Creek meets near Ipswich High School. Both connect to the Bremer River, the southern border of Brassall.
Brassall is conveniently located to everything, schools, shopping centre, gas stations, takeaway shops and other amenities.
The suburb of Brassall can encounter potential problems from the following pests.
Termites invade homes, which are a highly desirable food source. They may be tiny and seemingly harmless, but termites cause millions of dollars in damages and pose a significant problem for homeowners in Ipswich.
These wood feeders are common in Australia and it’s just a matter of time before they invade your home, especially if you leave your house defenceless.
You can prevent termite infestation by installing enough protection to prevent them from having access into your property. Call your local pest controller now and ask about termite inspections and barriers.
These wingless grey-coloured insects are agile and fast, which make them difficult to spot and capture. Silverfish are usually found in isolated areas of the home like bookcases, storage rooms and roof voids.
They are not a major problem in small numbers. However, silverfish can multiply fast, which means it wouldn’t take long for it to become a major problem. A large silverfish population is destructive as it can cause significant damage to property, including books, phots, paintings, and more.
Moist environments are the perfect breeding grounds for silverfish, so make sure your house has no leaking pipes and taps.
Mosquitoes pose a major health threat to humans, with millions of deaths per year being attributed to them.
In Australia, the common diseases caused by mosquito bites are Dengue fever, Australian encephalitis and Ross River fever. The bites are the result of the piercing of the skin and sucking of blood by female mosquitoes.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in any still water found in and around the home, including garden ponds, pot plants, drains and gutters. The number one preventive measure against mosquito infestation is eliminating their breeding grounds, i.e., any stagnant bodies of water around you.
Rats and mice are also considered as harmful pests to humans. They eat our food and contaminate it in the process, which is a way for diseases to be transmitted to the occupants of the home.
In fact, like mosquitoes, rodents have been found to be the culprit for significant losses in food supply and human life because of their ability to spread diseases.
Rodents are one of the most successful pests in the world, having successfully exploited the human habitat for years. They have been able to live side by side with humans, thanks to their adaptability and ability to eat any kind of food.

Spiders may not pose any significant harm or damage, but the problem is not most people can comfortably tolerate their presence around the house.
Most spiders are harmless but are considered a pest because of their habit of spinning webs, which they use to trap their prey. They feed on other bugs, which makes them natural pest controllers.
Spiders can be found in warm areas with low traffic like air conditioning units and high up on the cornices and eaves of your home.
If you suspect a spider infestation in your home, call your local pest control technicians to check for signs of spider presence and to apply an effected and targeted treatment for your spider problem.
Ants live in a colony that can house thousands, and even, millions of ants. Ant nests are often built on soil, wood or among rocks.
They are also a very familiar presence around the house as they can be easily spotted around foundations, and in walls, roof voids, kitchens, lawns and gardens, in rotting wood and rocks.
Aside from being a nuisance, ants pose a health risk. They are known to carry microorganisms that can cause diseases and transmitted to humans. There are also species of ants, like the fire ants, which deliver a painful sting. And there are people that could develop allergic reactions from ant bites.
Like rodents, cockroaches have successfully adapted to sharing spaces with people. Regardless of how common they are, cockroaches are considered as pests because of their role in transmitting diseases to humans.
Cockroaches spoil food, kitchen utensils, and preparation areas with their faeces, shed skins, egg cases, dead bodies and vomit. They are also people who are afraid of cockroaches.
A major cockroach infestation must be prevented because a foul odour builds up as a result of the accumulation of the secretions from their mouth and cuticle.
Cockroaches also trigger skin allergies in sensitive people and asthma attacks in asthmatics.

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