Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Churchill property owners have the following pests watch out for.

Cockroach Control in Churchill

Cockroaches are prehistoric insects that have evolved over millions of years to be one of the most adaptable pests one earth today. However, as much as that fact is impressive, cockroaches are still a pest carrying millions of bacteria in and on their bodies. Their cuticle, guts and faeces are known to carry diseases-causing pathogens that can be transmitted to humans.

They can spoil food by shedding their skins, and their shed skins and waste products are allergens that can trigger allergic reactions and asthma.

How do you know if you have a cockroach infestation? There are several ways to help you with this. One, is seeing a live cockroach, day or night, which means there are dozens more that are hiding. Second, you will find their droppings, staining on walls/surfaces caused by their vomit, and smelling a strong strange odour.

If you’re dealing with cockroaches in large numbers, the environment will emit an obvious smell and you will see droppings everywhere.

Termite Control in Australia

Termites are a common and persistent problem throughout Australia, including Churchill. These pests are highly destructive, causing major structural timber damage to houses and commercial structures in the country.

According to the latest study, approximately one-third of all unprotected properties are vulnerable to termite attack. Homes, especially those build close to gum trees, are at risk. Termites stay underground that the damage they cause are already significant before they are noticed.

They are known to destroy the wood in walls and roofs of a home with three months. The damage from termites is more expensive to repair than those caused by natural disasters and accidents such as floods and fire.

Ant Control in Churchill

There are thousands of ant species in Australia. These ants are amazing creatures, playing an important role as scavengers and predators in their natural environment. But in the human world, ants are regarded as pests because they can cause annoyance and may pose a health risk.

The small mounds they create their excavations are unsightly in your garden paths. Ants can carry on their bodies or digestive tracks, pathogens that cause diseases such as dysentery and smallpox.

The ant species that are common in Southeast Queensland are Black House Ant, Coastal Brown Ant, Bull Ant, Carpenter Ant and Funnel Ants.

Spider Control in Churchill

Most spider species found in Australia are harmless, but they get a bad reputation because there are people who have genuine fears of these eight-legged creatures. Spiders are in abundance in Southeast Queensland because of the region’s warm and humid climate.

Some spin webs, while others don’t. Some are venomous, while others aren’t. Some might be found up high in the walls, while others might be running across the wall or floor, or others are content spinning sticky web in gardens. because different species display different behaviours and can be found in different environments, it is best to hire pest control experts to deal spider infestations.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are a problem not just in Australia, but all over the globe. In Queensland, the most common mosquito borne diseases are ross River Fever Virus, Barmah Forest Virus, Dengue, Japanese Encephalitis and Zika Virus.

These blood-sucking insects are most active around dawn and dusk, drawn by the carbon dioxide from our breath. They can usually be found “hanging out” in things such as tables, foliage and other stored items around the house.

There are three species of mosquitoes in Queensland: saltmarsh mosquitoes, freshwater-breeding mosquitoes and container-breeding mosquitoes. The city council has an on-going program for mosquito control, but the community can also do its part to ensure its success. One of the most effective ways to keep mosquitoes away from your property is to eliminate/reduce the areas where they breed and lay their eggs around your home.

Wasp Control

Wasps are often mistaken for bees and vice versa. They are completely different insects with only one thing in common – they both sting. And even in this case, wasps differ from bees in that they can sting multiply times, which increases the risk to victims.

Wasps also have their role in the environment, mainly as natural pest controllers that eliminate bugs that destroy crops. However, they can be aggressive and can wreak havoc on the human and animal population. Their sting is extremely painful, and in some cases, can trigger allergic reactions. In which case, the patient should be given immediate medical attention.

When it comes to wasps, prevention is the key. Human foods attract them, so to keep them away, never leave food within or around your home where they can catch the attention of wasps. If you discover a wasp nest in your proximity, call for professional help in getting rid of it.

Rodent Control Churchill

Mice and rats are diseases carriers, mainly from the fleas that are drawn to these pests. These fleas spread diseases such as plague, salmonella, leptospirosis, tapeworms, etc. Aside from that, mice and rats can cause significant damage to homes and buildings by chewing on doors, woodwork, beams, pipelines and electrical wirings.

Churchill 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 Churchill is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Churchill 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 Churchill.

  • 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.
