Carole Park is an industrial suburb in Ipswich. It only had 4 residents based on the 2016 Census. Except for a few farms, this area wasn’t settled until the 1940s.
It has been serving as an industrial area only since 2010. Before this year, Carole Park was equally a residential and industrial area, which was separated by the Logan Motorway. The residential section was in Brisbane City while the industrial section was in the City of Ipswich.
There are several industrial structures to support Carole Park’s industrial activities. There is the Carole Park Industrial Estate, a modern facility that includes a warehouse and two office buildings. It is close to the Logan and Ipswich Motorways.
Even in industrial areas like Carole Park, pests can be a problem if pest control is overlooked. Here are the pests to watch out for in Carole Park.
Silverfish is characterised by a silvery-blue colour, scales and fish-like movements. They are notorious for being highly destructive. These pests love carbohydrates, especially sugars and starches, so they feed on books, photographs, paintings, plaster, etc.
They love humid environments, so they would most likely be found in kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms and other dark, dank and low-traffic areas. Silverfish infestation can be prevented by repairing leaks in the pipe systems, improving ventilation and using dehumidifiers.
For businesses, cockroach infestation presents a threat of spoilage and damage to stored foods and organic items. Having even one tiny cockroach in your place of business is enough to tarnish your brand image. Another major concern is the health risks that cockroaches pose such as salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis, etc. Eczema and childhood asthma have been found to be caused by cockroach droppings.
Unless the infestation is already severe, cockroaches will not be seen during the day. They are active at night to hunt for food. However, the presence of cockroaches can easily be identified if you see cockroach droppings, vomit marks on horizontal surfaces and wall-floor junctions, shed skins, strange odour, and live cockroaches in the kitchen or bathroom.
Spiders that manage to get into buildings are generally found in dark, small spaces such as cracks, corners and vents. Others that are outdoor spin webs in the garden and around premises. Spiders are generally harmless, but they are a nuisance because of their webbing, spider bites and the genuine fear they trigger in many people.
Because some species of spiders are venomous, it’s best not to take chances in handling spiders yourself if you spot them. Pest control experts can identify different types of spiders and will know the proper and most effective way to address spider infestation.
The most common types of rodents that business owners and homeowners deal with are rats and mice. Rats and mice are problematic because they can transmit diseases to humans. They can also cause damage to property with their chewing habit and spoil food. Another major concern is they bring other types of pests in the property like fleas, lice and ticks.
Rats and mice are nocturnal, but you will know they are in your premises because they are noisy. The scratching you may hear inside walls or roof voids. If you have a rodent problem, the fastest, most effective and safest way to treat it is by calling for professional pest control service.

It’s common to see ants running around in homes and businesses. This should not be ignored as this could be a sign of a much bigger infestation. If you suspect an infestation in your property, watch out for these signs: ants crawling in food preparation areas; a trail of ants created by a hormone that ants produce to attract the rest of the ant nests to gather food; and appearance of ant nests that look like a pile of dirt or soil.
There are various ant sprays that you can buy from the store. However, these sprays only offer a temporary solution and only treat the ants that are visible. For an effective and long-lasting treatment, hire a professional pest control service.
Wasps are common in Australia, such as the paper wasp, which is notorious for its painful sting. Wasps bite usually when their nest is disturbed. The pain is characterised as caustic and burning and can last up to 15 minutes.
Wasp bites are painful and can be life-threatening to people with allergic reactions. If you see a wasp nest in the proximity of your property or suspect a wasp infestation, don’t attempt to remove the wasp nest yourself. Wasps can swarm and will sting multiple times. Call a professional pest control technician to remove the wasp safely with the right techniques and technology.
These wood-eating pests are common in Carole Park and throughout Australia. They feed 24/7, which means they can cause significant damage to a building if they are ignored or not treated by professionals.
Termites can put you out of business if you start treatment when it’s too late. There are two ways of termites can impact business: structural damage by eating away into foundations, support beams, etc.; and cosmetic damage that will make you look bad in the eyes of your employees and customers.
DIY treatments will not work with termites and even make the problem worst. The best way to approach a termite infestation is by hiring professionals to conduct inspections and recommend an appropriate treatment and maintenance plan.

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