Pest Control in Waterford

Waterford is a suburb in Logan City and includes Woodlands Estates. It located on the east side of the Logan River where it is intersected by the road from Kingston to Beenleigh. Waterford is 7 km south-east of Logan Central.

Waterford offers quiet living with fantastic views, with plenty of parks and walkways. Pathways are everywhere to provide easy access for walking and biking. With plenty of parks, you can be living in a home within walking distance of green spaces. These parks offer facilities for various sports, BBQs, play equipment for children, wetlands, and more.

In Woodland Estates, though homes are built close together, they are modern and beautiful. It offers a comfortable lifestyle, with shopping, transportation and other services within easy reach.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

It can be challenge to live in a semi-rural area like Waterford when it concerns pests. Aside from white ants or termites, rodents, ants, and other common pests can potentially infest your home and property.

Termite Infestation

Being a suburb of Logan, which, according to the CSIRO Termite Hazard Map, is a high risk zone for termite attack, Waterford also fits into the Termite Activity Risk Factor Scale from Low to High. Where a Waterford property fits into the scale will be determined by the age of the house, the type of building materials the house is made of (timber, cement, etc.), proximity to a body of water or proximity to a bushland.

Most homes in Waterford have plenty of timber and moisture, which unfortunately termites love. Based on the experience of local pest control experts, termite damage is commonly found in bathrooms, laundry and kitchen. This is because these are wet areas and most probably have leakage issues.

Lack of ventilation to subfloors, insufficient or damaged drainage around the home or air conditioners and hot water pipe overflows leaking to the ground create the ideal conditions for timber pests like termites. These pests eat their way from the inside, so the damage to your home may already be substantial by time you discover the infestation.

Fire Ants

According to the Logan City Council’s Fire Ants Zones List, Waterford and Woodland Estates belong to the Fire Ant Biosecurity Zone 2 and 1, respectively. This means that if you live or work in any of these two zones, you have to know your responsibilities when moving or storing materials a fire ant carrier such as pot plants.

These South American pests are dangerous as they can spread to large areas quickly and threaten the environment, our outdoor lifestyle, and our tourism and agricultural industries. Fire ants are a category 1 restricted pest under the Biosecurity Act 2014, so you are mandated to report fire ant sightings on your property.

Queensland has community fire ant treatment projects to encourage residents to do their part in preventing the spread of fire ants. You can treat the nest on your property using fire ant bait, or you can hire a pest control company to treat the fire ants for you.

Rodent Control

Logan’s subtropical climate is a wonderful for rats and mice. Contrary to common beliefs, rodents are not confined to CBD areas. It is common to see them in parks, with BBQ facilities or in vacant inner-city lots.

Pest control specialists receive plenty of calls about rat removal throughout the year. They may look cute but they are considered a pest because of the mess and the smell they make. Rats can be dangerous because they are vectors for various diseases and they chew on everything, including electrical wirings and the timber on ceilings.

Be on the lookout for signs of rodent infestation, including flickering lights or air-conditioners suddenly not working, and call your local pest control company.

Cockroach Treatment

When you think of cockroach, you may that immediately think that you wouldn’t see them in sunny Waterford. However, it’s possible for a household or a place of business in Queensland to be overrun with these filthy critters. Cockroaches will make their way anywhere where there is plenty of food, and damp, warm conditions. So this could be any home or commercial property, including those in the suburbs like Waterford.

Don’t take any risk when it comes to the safety of your family or customers. Cockroaches are not easily killed and they breed plenty and fast. If you see a cockroach problem in your property, hire a professional pest control expert to nip the problem in the bud.

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

Because Waterford 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.

  • 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.
