Calvert is a rural suburb in Ipswich. It had 313 residents as of the 2016 Census.
The Main Line Railway as well as the Western Creek, a tributary of the Bremer River, intersects the suburb. The creek renders Calvert vulnerable to flooding. In the northern section, elevation reaches 340 metres above sea level around Mount Grandchester No. 2, which forms part of the Little Liverpool Range. The southern part of Calvert is designated mostly for agriculture.
Calvert is about 44.2 sq km, with one park covering almost 1.4% of the total land area.
Here are the pests that pose health and safety problems for residents of Calvert.
Spiders can be quite scary and be an unwelcomed guest in the home and offices. Some spiders are harmless, but others are venomous and threaten your health and safety. The most venomous species, like the redback spider, have earned the spider a high pest status. In truth, many spiders live by capturing and devouring prey using their web.
Spiders are beneficial in their natural habitat, but not so when they enter buildings and structures. Buildings provide various locations that are ideal for their habitat – protected, with crevices for retreat and areas to spin their webs.
Silverfish are common pests in households. They eat paper products, books, clothing, wallpaper and other stuff containing cellulose. Their feeding habits make them highly destructive.
Silverfish are usually found in damp, mouldy areas like bathrooms, pantries, kitchens, utility rooms, sluice rooms and toilets. These nocturnal agile pests have one weakness, they cannot climb smooth surfaces, so they can be caught behind glass, wash basins and baths.
Rodents such as rats and mice can be a significant problem for Calvert homes and commercial spaces. They can cause significant damage to your property, spoil food and transmit diseases.
The most common rodent pests in Australia are the Norway Rat, Roof Rat and the House Mouse. They have perfected adapted to living in proximity with humans, sharing their food and shelter.

Termites can cause extensive structural damage to homes, compromising their integrity and value. Also called white ants, termites can cause millions of dollars’ worth of damage to Australian homes every year. In fact, termites cause more damage than floods or fire.
Termite inspection is important because termite infestation can go undetected until the damage becomes visible. With regular inspections, termite activity will be detected, and further damage is prevented.
The cockroach has been given a very high pest status in most parts of the world because of its wide distribution and close association with humans. In Australia, the most common types of cockroaches are the Australian Cockroach, American Cockroach and German Cockroach.
Cockroaches are persistent pests that are common in homes and commercial buildings. They are unsightly and can spread diseases and allergies. Cockroaches can spoil food, kitchen utensils, and surfaces with their droppings, case skins, empty egg cases, dead cockroaches and vomit marks.
Ants are another common pest in households and commercial spaces. They may be small, but they can quickly multiply and can become a nuisance. Ants also contaminate food and can make spaces look dirty and unhygienic.
They may also pose health risks as there are known cases of ants physically carrying pathogens that cause diseases such as dysentery and smallpox. Ants can also be a nuisance because some ants bite or sting.

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