Berrinba, a suburb in Logan City, is located less than 1 km from Logan Central.
It had 1,345 residents as of 2016.
It was originally part of Greater Brisbane when it was established in 1925 and was officially transferred to Logan City in 1979.
It is a small community but is close to essential amenities and the Logan Motorway, giving residents easy access to more amenities.
One of its most important features is Berrinba Wetland, a 140-hectare protected wetland. Only 40 hectares are allowed for development for the public. It offers recreational boardwalks, walking and bicycle paths, canoe trails and flora and fauna corridors.
There are also designated picnic spots throughout this natural sanctuary, which shelters birds, possums and gliders. Children can enjoy the interactive environmental education and high-tech play equipment. As part of conservative efforts, the non-native trees have been replaced with native plants.
The natural environment of Berrinba, mainly its wetland, is a source of beauty but also a haven for pests such as mosquitoes, termites, ants, etc. Combined it with the subtropical environment of Queensland, and pests turn into an actual threat to health and property.
Termites will be everywhere in Berrinba because it scores high on the Forestry Index, Water Index, Paperbark Index and Gumtree Index. This is because of the presence of Berrinba Wetlands, which is an ideal place for termites to thrive. This makes termite detection and eradication a priority for homeowners.
A termite colony may be located as far as 100 metres from your property but will still be able to gain access via gaps at ground level, such as cracks in mortar joints. They can remain beneath your home undetected until the damage become noticeable.
This is why for suburbs like Berrinba, annual termite inspection must be done, and termite barriers must be installed around the property.
Cockroaches are one of the most common pests in residential and commercial spaces because they are resilient and highly adaptable. They feed on everything including soaps, glue, grease toothpaste, etc.
There are many different species of cockroaches, but there are some that are virtually impossible to get rid of, like the German Cockroach, which is the usually the type found in residential and commercial properties.
A cockroach infestation must be avoided because of the health risk they pose. Exposure to items contaminated by cockroaches can lead to food poisoning, gastroenteritis and other diseases.
There are more than 1300 different species of ants that can be found in Australia. There are species that present harm both to property and people.
Ants live in colonies, which are built in the dirt, in wood, under pavers, in wall cavities or roofing gaps. They can travel a long distance, from their nest to the food source, and back again to their nest to share the food with the other ants in their nest.’
Aside from their nest, ants can also be found crawling in the kitchen, cupboards, bathroom, wall surfaces, near electric sockets or devices, and anywhere there is plenty of food and water sources. These pests are active throughout the year, but their activity is noticeably high during periods of high humidity.

There are various species of spiders, some are harmless, and others have a venomous bite. Spiders that spin webs that make a house look dirty and unhygienic. Spider bites are not only painful, but they also cause swelling, and in severe cases, severe allergic reactions, which can lead to death if not given immediate medical attention.
The solution for spider infestation is best left to professional pest control specialists. The use of chemical treatments to eliminate spiders is challenging because spiders barely make contact with surfaces. They walk with most of their body and abdomen off the ground, which can render chemicals solutions useless.
Treatment must be targeted at the spider web or spider itself to achieve great results.
Rodents cause damage to homes and businesses. They cause physical damage as a result of their gnawing habits. Being omnivores, they can eat all kinds of foods and even household items.
The types of rodents that commonly infest properties are House Mouse, Norway Rat and Roof Rat. Aside from residential and commercial structures, rodents can be found in creeping plants or trees, and underground burrows.
They are nocturnal pests, only active at night when people are sleeping and not likely spot them hunting for food. But their presence can easily be confirmed with the scurrying noise in the roof or wall cavities, especially at night.
Mosquitoes can make life unpleasant with their high-pitched buzzing and painful bites. Only female mosquitoes bite people and animals. The males feed on nectar and other sweet things they can suck from plants.
Their eggs are laid in standing water, which collects in bowls, trays, old tyres, bird baths and other containers. They can also be drawn to lawn or shrubbery since they are regularly watered.
We are so used to mosquitoes, but they are still annoying. Their bites can be painful, itchy and even deadly. Mosquito bites carry disease-causing pathogens that can be transmitted to the bitten person or animal.
From thousands of years and up to know, mosquitoes are considered to be killer insects, responsible for millions of deaths throughout history.

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