Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Threats of pests such as termites, rodents, cockroaches, ants, etc. are present in Waterford West, though it was just recently developed. Here are some of the destructive pests that you should watch out for.

Termite Treatment 

The suburbs in South East Queensland, including Waterford West, are vulnerable to termite attacks because of our warm and humid climate conditions.

Waterford West is a fairly new suburb, as development started just in 1988. However, the ratings for its Forestry Index, Water Index and Gumtree Index are high, which means termites remain a constant threat to residents.

Because the area is considered a high-risk zone for termite infestation, it is recommended that homeowners carry out at least one termite inspection every year. 1 of 5 homes in Australia will be infested with termites every year, and termite damage is not covered by home insurance.

Cockroach Treatment 

Cockroaches find and consume human food, which can cause serious food contamination issues. They spread bacteria and parasites by excreting and vomiting the food they eat. A particular bacterium found in cockroaches, pseudomonas aeruginosa, can be spread to people. There is also salmonella, which causes diseases that range in severity from food poisoning to typhoid.

They can also cause allergic reactions, leading to increased itching, redness and severe asthma attacks. This is due to the allergens that cockroaches carry.

Silverfish Control

Silverfish don’t pose immediate threat to your health and property. But getting rid of silverfish before it becomes an infestation and becomes harder to treat.

These pests don’t bite and aren’t aggressive, but they can cause allergic reactions to some people. Plus, they can be destructive because they feed on books, clothes and other personal belongings.

If you’re not sure if what you’re seeing are silverfish, they can usually be found in damp and dark places, such as bathrooms, kitchens and garages. Silverfish have a long, teardrop-shaped body and are coloured bluish-silver, white or brown-grey.

They love starchy, sugary and high-cellulose items such as books, papers, cardboards, clothes, fabrics, wallpapers, etc. Silverfish also like certain human foods like coffee, sugar and pasta. This means silverfish infestation can also occur in pantries and rubbish disposal areas of the kitchen.

Spider Removal

Whether it is poisonous or non-poisonous, nobody wants a spider infestation in their property.

Never get too close to a spider, whether you think it’s poisonous or not. It’s good to know to be able to tell what species of spider you’re dealing with. Some of the spiders that are common in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Southeast Queensland are:

  • Orb Weaves
  • House spiders
  • St Andrew’s cross spiders
  • Daddy Long Legs Spiders
  • Gumtree trunk weavers
  • Pan-web spiders
  • Redback spiders
  • Tent spiders

You can’t be sure to live spider-free, but there are some things you can do to minimise spider infestation at home. Don’t keep too many storage boxes or containers. Regularly clean garages, sheds. And storage areas. Vacuum regularly, not just the floors, but also

Ant Control

As country where it is usually hot, ant infestation is common. The ant species that are prevalent in Southeast Queensland are:

  • Black house ants: typically found in the kitchen, rubbish and areas with food.
  • Bull ants: Very aggressive ants that attack and sting humans.
  • Coastal brown ants: These ants usually nest in dry areas.
  • Fire ants: A common ant with a very painful sting.
  • Garden ants: These common and harmless ants nest outdoors in soil.
  • Green ants: Another ant with a painful sting, green ants nest outdoors.
  • Pavement ants: Often found nesting around pipes and wiring.
  • White-footed house ants: Outdoor ants with black bodies and white feet.

It’s important to identify the species of ant that has invaded your property. This is where pest control specialists start their treatment. Once the species and the nest location have been identified, the technicians can recommend the best course for the problem.

Rodent Control

Rodents are a serious threat to the health and well-being of people. They must be dealt with immediately because a couple of rodents can multiply into several numbers in a matter of weeks.

Native rodents are harmless and are protected. It is the introduced species that you must watch out for as they carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. These introduced rodent species eat rubbish, pet food, food scraps, composts and whatever else they can find.

They will travel long distance in search of food and water. While rodents may invade a home as the weather becomes colder, they can occupy a property year-round if it has plenty of food.

TERMITE INFESTATION IN WATERFORD WEST QLD

Waterford West Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

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

Because Waterford West 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 Waterford West.

  • 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.
