Pest Control in Banksia Beach

Banksia Beach is a picturesque and sleepy town and suburb on the eastern coast of Bribie Island, the tiniest and most northerly of three major sand islands forming the coastline protecting the northern part of Moreton Bay.

Apart from Bribie Island National Park, which is in the western part, the land is almost entirely zoned for residential use.

As of 2016, it had a population of 5,995 people. With this many residents, it is a pleasant surprise that Banksia Beach is actually quiet and friendly. The land that is near the coast is developed as canal estates

This beautiful beachside on the banks of Pumicestone Passage is perfect for retirees. In fact, most of the residents consist of elderly couples or older couples with families. There are a few corner stores and cafes and more amenities are located throughout the island – all within a few minutes’ drive.

It has the Bribie Harbour Shopping Village, Bribie Island Community Arts Centre, Pacific Harbour Golf and Country Club and Solander Lake Bowls Club. There are a number of parks within the suburb such ass Col Fisher Park, Cosmos Park, Dampier Park, and more.

There are many older and modern homes in Banksia Beach, and its popularity has led to the development of several apartment-style buildings to meet demand.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

Even houses on islands are not safe from termites. Islands have groundwater, thus they have swampy and boggy areas that termites love. Termite inspections in Banksia Beach are important for residential and commercial properties because South Queensland is especially susceptible to termites due to its warm and humid weather.

It is recommended that property owners carry out a termite inspection once or twice a year, depending on whether you are in a suburb that is high risk. With 1 out of 5 Australian homes attacked by termites annually, termite inspections are the best defence for homeowners.

Rodent Control in Banksia Beach

Like many pests, rodents find warmth when the cold season sets in. Thus, there are more signs of rat or mice presence around this time of the year. They contaminate food and exposure to them poses a health risk as they carry harmful diseases such as leptospirosis, plague, typhus, etc.

Before winter arrives, make sure to check your home for cracks and holes and seal them, if you find them. Store food in airtight containers and store and dispose your trash properly so you won’t attract rats or mice that are always on a search for food and water.

If you notice rat or mice droppings or having food mysteriously eaten from your kitchen, pantry or cupboard, it’s time to seek assistance from professional pest control experts.

Cockroach Control

Though only active at night, cockroaches leave signs of their presence. Watch out for droppings inside drawers, cupboards or pantries; egg casings, called oothecae; musty smell that is emitted by cockroaches; and sightings of live cockroaches. They are usually found in warm, dark, moist areas such as basements and sewers.

Cockroaches need to be dealt with because they carry, on their cuticle, guts and faeces, microorganisms that cause diseases. One cockroach can carry several million bacteria in their body. These bacteria can cause gastroenteritis, dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever, and more.

If you think you’re dealing with a cockroach infestation, contact a pest control company that is qualified to deal with Australian Cockroaches, American Cockroaches, German Cockroaches, Oriental Cockroaches, Brown Banded Cockroaches and Smoky Brown Cockroaches.

Spider Control in Banksia Beach

Australia is home to both harmless and venomous species of spiders. Spiders are generally harmless, but they still shouldn’t be ignored because a bite can be dangerous, especially to small children and pets. If you start to see a spider, you have to know there are more of them hiding in dark cracks and crevices.

For spider infestations, Redbacks, Huntsman Spiders, Daddy Long Legs, Black House Spiders, Brown House Spiders and other species that are common in Queensland, should be handled by qualified pest control specialists.

Ant Control

One of the most common types of household pests, ants can be an annoyance because they seem to be everywhere and your food supply is not safe from them. Queensland is home to various ant species as they thrive in our warm humid climate.

Ants will enter homes because they are drawn by most types of human food, but especially sweet stuff like sugar, honey, syrup, etc. They also seek water for them and to take back to their nest.

Don’t confuse ants with termites. Though they may look similar in appearance, they are different types of insects. If you are not sure what you’re dealing with, seek assistance from experienced pest control technicians.

Silverfish Control in Banksia Beach

Silverfish are another pest that can cause significant damage to your home and personal items. Their food consists mainly of things with starches, including glue, book bindings, paper, sugar, textiles and clothes.

Silverfish must be addressed immediately as they multiply very quickly. It becomes harder and more complex to eradicate them when they are great in number. Additionally, they are nocturnal, which makes it difficult to spot and catch them.

If you see your clothes, documents or wallpapers with holes that you cannot explain the cause, seek professional assistance from pest control experts.

Banksia Beach 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 Banksia Beach is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Banksia Beach 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 Banksia Beach.

  • 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.
