Armstrong Creek is a rural suburb in the Moreton Bay Region. Covering an area of 34.305 sq km, it is located about 33 km from the capital Brisbane.
Per the 2016 Census, the suburb had 325 residents.
A portion of its northeastern border is the North Pine River. D’Aguilar National Park shelters a part of the forest in the west, where the D’Aguilar Range is located.
The appeal of the booming suburb is its convenient coastal access, as well as the local infrastructure including schools and health services.
Here are some of the destructive pests that can be a problem in Armstrong Creek residential and commercial properties.
Termites can cause significant problems quickly if not treated immediately. They are a consistent and continuous threat throughout the year, particularly in Queensland as it is considered a high-risk zone for termite attacks.
About 32% of houses in Australia have termite activity, or 130,000 annually. This makes it essential for homeowners to prioritise termite detection and eradication. Pest control experts recommend termite barriers as protection and annual termite inspection for prevention.
Cockroaches are quite common because these pests are resilient and hard to eradicate. They feed on virtually anything including glue, grease, toothpaste, and more. There are many different types of cockroaches and one of the hardest to eliminate is German Cockroaches.
With cockroaches, they key is prevention. While commercial insect sprays can help kill the cockroaches you see, the others that are hiding are busy breeding, birthing the next generation of cockroaches.
For a total and long-term cockroach control, hire professional pest control technicians for the job.
In Australia, there more than 1300 species of ants that pose threats to both property and people. This is why ant infestation requires complex identification and treatment solutions including the use of pest control sprays and special baits to deal with specific species of ants.

Spiders are fine when they are outdoors – in their natural habitat. They become a problem when they manage to gain access to a home. They spin webs that they use to catch their prey. These spider webs make the home unsightly and look unhygienic.
For spiders that bite, some can be vulnerable to their venom, especially children and pets. Spider bites can be painful and uncomfortable at best and can be fatal at worst. The smartest thing in case of a spider bite is immediate medical attention.
Spider control can be tricky and treatment may not work because their body and abdomen don’t touch the ground, rendering any chemical treatment ineffective. With qualified pest control technicians, the treatment is targeted at the spider or spider web to produce the best results.
Dealing with rats and mice in the home is a hassle. They contaminate food and damage property, thanks to their destructive feeding habits. Rats and mice also pose danger to your health because of the various pathogens in their body that can cause serious diseases.
Rats and mice can also reproduce very quickly that immediate treatment and eradication is required at the first sign of an infestation. These pests leave signs of their presence, including droppings, the strong, musky smell of their urine, and strange noises in your wall or roof, especially at night.
If you suspect a rodent problem in your home, let experienced pest control experts handle the treatment and eradication.
Mosquitoes are also a common problem in Queensland, where the humid, subtropical climate allows them to thrive. Aside from being a nuisance because of the biting and buzzing, mosquitoes are dangerous as their bite can transmit viruses that cause serious and sometimes deadly diseases, including malaria, dengue fever, Zika virus and Ross Ricer Fever.
These bloodsuckers are known to lay their eggs in still or stagnant water. One effective way to make sure your property doesn’t harbor mosquitoes is to eliminate breeding grounds such as old tyres, bird baths, potted plant saucers, rainwater tanks, etc.
For comprehensive and effective mosquito control, call your local pest control experts.

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