Pest Control in Brookwater

Brookwater, a suburb in the city of Ipswich, is a mix of low- to medium-density housing. The blocks where you can build your home start at 600 sq m. The residential areas comprise four land precincts: The Address, The Crest, The Point and Fairways, each with their own unique character and design.

It is one of the suburbs of the Greater Springfield Development, a private development in the south-west of the Brisbane metropolitan area. It is a privately built master planned community comprising a shopping centre, hospital, stadium, and more.

Per the 2016 Census, the suburb had 2,151 residents.

One of its main features is the Brookwater Golf Course, which is close to the Springfield Central, the designated business district of Greater Springfield.

Other essential amenities are also offered including reliable public transportation, good schools and a wide range of shops and boutiques.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Below are the types of pests that property owners in Brookwater need to watch out for.

Termite Control in Brookwater

Brookwater is a fairly new master planned community, so it is safe to assume that the newly built houses there are all with termite barriers. However, the properties are still not safe from termites, which thrive in the humid and warm climate of Queensland.

Pest control experts recommend having annual termite inspections to make sure your house is termite-free.

Wasp Control

Wasps play an essential role as pollinators, contributing to the continued health of our planet. They become aggressive only when their nest is threatened. There are also wasp species that prey on other insects like cockroaches, which make them natural pest controllers.

Though a close cousin of bees, wasps are different in appearance and habits. Wasps are carnivorous while bees love nectar and pollen.

For all wasp concerns, professional pest control services are highly recommended as it is the safest and most effective way to deal with them.

Spider Control

Dark and empty rooms are the preferred environment for spiders. This is why spiders and/or their cobwebs, are often found in hard-to-reach places such as cupboards, storerooms, attics, basements, ceilings, roof voids, etc.

Handling spider infestation is complex because applying a treatment incorrectly may lead to other spiders coming out of their hiding places. Professional pest control technicians are experienced in catching and identifying different varieties of spiders and apply the appropriate treatment and preventive measures.

Rodent Control in Brookwater

Rodents cause significant damage to structure and property because of their tendency to invade different structures, chew and cut any item to build a nest.

Don’t allow the resident rodents in your home to grow in numbers. If you happen to see a single rodent, hire a professional pest control company with a rodent pest control program that is guaranteed to eliminate rodents the first time around.

Cockroach Control in Brookwater

Cockroaches can contaminate food and spread diseases. They hide and lay their eggs in bathrooms, kitchens, pantries, laundry rooms, closets, bedrooms, and more.

The lack of regular cleaning is one of the main causes of cockroach infestations. Cleaning your house regularly is one way to deter cockroaches. You are inviting these creepy crawlies by letting your home get dirty and messy.

Professional assistance is recommended to endure the complete removal of cockroaches from your property. Licensed pest control technicians are trained to remove all types of cockroaches and can also offer treatments that are customised based on the type of cockroach infestation and the needs of your property.

Ant Control

If you keep finding ants inside or near your kitchen, chances are high that you have a major infestation. Ants are easy to notice because they are active day and night, and they mostly move in groups.

Ants can usually be seen in many parts of the home, including the basements, under cupboards, wall cracks, and more. Outdoors, ant nests are easy to spot. Their nest is a mountain-like pile of mud with multiple pathways that lead inside.

While most species of ants are harmless, there are species like the red ants that bite humans. Red ants should be avoided because of the extremely painful bite they deliver.

Silverfish Control

Silverfish don’t bite, but they are destructive. They can damage many different items in the home, such as wooden starched furniture, books, papers, wallpapers, upholstery, and more. Once they destroy an item, it is irreversible. So, if you suspect a silverfish infestation in your home, call a professional pest control service.

Humidity and dust are watch attract silverfish. To keep these pests away, keep your home dry and clean. Food should also be stored in tightly sealed containers to make them impenetrable against silverfish and other food pests.

Brookwater Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Ipswich area, where Brookwater is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Brookwater 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 Brookwater.

  • 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.
