Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Some of the pests that commonly infest Albany Creek properties are:

Rodent Control in Albany Creek

Despite being common household pests, we shouldn’t be ignoring their presence because they of the many hazards they bring. Rats and mice are so small that they can squeeze through tiny holes to gain access into a property.

A home that is infested with rats or mice reduces its value. In addition, rodents can spread diseases to humans through exposure with their droppings or urine. Rodents also damage properties because of their habit of constant gnawing.

Setting up traps and baits doesn’t fully address the problem of rodent infestation. Choose a safe, reliable and effective rodent treatment, hire licensed pest control experts.

Bird Control

Birds may seem harmless, but there are many issues associated with them, including threats posed by their droppings, disease transmission and attractant for other pests.

Additionally, birds that are not native to Australia like Feral Pigeons, House Sparrows, Common Starling and Indian Myna birds pose a threat to the local wildlife. Native Australian birds can also be pests like the Cockatoo, Ibis, Ducks, Parrots, Magpies, Crows and Swallows when their activities cause damage.

Bird droppings are very corrosive to homes and buildings and pose serious public health threats. One of the most effective ways to protect your home is to bird-proof it. Call professional bird-proofing experts to install bird deterrents on your roof as well as your solar panels.

Termite Control in Albany Creek

Termites are a serious threat to Queensland homes. About 1 in 5 homes are damaged by termites, resulting in hundreds of millions in damages annually. This is because out subtropical climate is just perfect for these wood-eating pests.

These subterranean pests are often mistaken for white ants, but they are actually more closely related to cockroaches. They have mandibles, which the workers use to chew on cellulose found in timber. The workers are one of different castes that live in a termite colony. The other castes are soldiers, and the king and queen. Each group performs a function for the survival and maintenance of the colony.

Home and building insurance dosn’t generally cover termite damage. This is because termites are so common in Queensland that most insurance policies exclude damages caused by termites.

The best way to deal with termite prevention and early detection. Make sure your property has termite barriers in place and it is regularly inspected for termites by qualified pest control specialists.

Ant Control

It is easy to have an ant infestation because these bugs as constantly looking for food to bring back to their colony. The places where ants are usually found are pet food bowls, compost bins, and even leftover food and even breadcrumbs lying around the kitchen or dining table.

Common ant species that infest Queensland homes are Black Ants, Coastal Brown Ants Funnel Ants, Green Ants, Meat Ants and Sugar Ants.

When you find ants in your home and attempt to find where they are coming from, you could end up nowhere. Ants could resurface another to infest your home. Rather than do this, call for professional assistance to get rid of ants effectively.

Cockroach Control in Albany Creek

If you’ve seen one cockroach in your home, chances are there are more of them hiding because they avoid the light. One female can lay up to 40 eggs at a time, so their numbers can increase quickly. Cockroaches prefer warm, humid and dark environments. They are scavengers, so they thrive on places where there is plenty of second-hand food like food scraps and breadcrumbs.

There are thousands of species of cockroaches, but there most common household cockroaches in Queensland are American, Australian and German Cockroaches.

The traces that cockroaches leave behind can cause health problems, especially for asthmatics. Their shed skins contain allergens that trigger asthma symptoms. They are also the cause of Salmonella, a disease similar to food poisoning.

It is difficult to eliminate cockroaches completely because there are practically invisible. This is where professional assistance from pest control experts is needed.

Silverfish Control

One of the most ancient insects on the planet, silverfish are considered pests because of their damaging feeding behaviours in residential homes. They don’t pose health risks to humans, but they can destroy household belongings, especially those made of glue, paper or cloth.

Silverfish are nocturnal and prefer dark, damp places, making it difficult to catch and eliminate them. Not to mention, they are extremely fast, capable of alarming horizontal and vertical speed.

Since trapping and getting rid of them is challenging, it is a job best left to qualified pest control professionals.

Spider Control in Albany Creek

Though spiders aren’t the most dangerous insect in the world, you still don’t have to live with them in your home. Some of the common spiders in Queensland are Daddy Long Legs, Black House Spider, Brown House Spider, Redback Spider and White-tailed Spider.

There are many species of spiders, but only a small percentage carries a lethal bite. Most spiders are generally harmless, busy spinning webs, which they use to catch their prey.

Commercial insect sprays can only work for a time and eventually spiders will return. For more effective and long-lasting spider control, call qualified pest control specialists.

Albany Creek Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Moreton Bay area, where Albany Creek is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Albany Creek 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 Albany Creek.

  • 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.
