Pest Control in Bongaree

Bongaree is a suburb on the western side of the Bribie Island, next to the Pumicestone Passage, in Moreton Bay Region.

It had 6,947 residents as of 2016.

Its southern area is in the Buckleys Hole Conservation Park, a 220-acre park featuring a freshwater lagoon, a woodland, an open forest and a beach. It is frequented by avid bushwalkers and anglers. Buckleys Hole is also popular with birdwatchers.

Bongaree gives off a relaxed old-school lifestyle, but it is also close to amenities and conveniences such as cafes and restaurants, shops, schools, public transport, etc.

The water, which offers great fishing, swimming and sailing, is a mere 5-minute walk. It is also great for cycling the island is relatively flat.

Bongaree is quite a lovely suburb to raise a family, offering an idyllic lifestyle and a convenient location that is middle between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

The main features of Bongaree are its parks and beaches, not to mention its weather. However, the downside is that homeowners and businesses are always on alert to prevent pest infestations.

Ant Control in Bongaree

The hardy ants are active all-year round, though they be in different levels of hibernation when the weather turns cold. But they are typically hard at work, gathering food, building their nests, and developing their colony.

Ants play an important role in the natural environment, but they are pests in urban habitats. In general, they are only a threat to humans if their nests are disturbed and they attack to defend their nests. In homes and businesses, they are an unpleasant sight. They also bite, which is not fatal, just painful. But this is not true for the Jack Jumper Ant, which is native to Australia. Its bite can be fatal, but an anti-venom is available to prevent this. The Bullet Ant, an introduced species, has the world’s most painful sting, but they are usually non-fatal.

Cockroach Control

Cockroaches poses a threat throughout the year, but they are normally quite active during the cold months. They are nocturnal, which means they are most likely to be spotted at night in your kitchen on a warm summer night.

They are more of a threat to your health than your property because they transport all kinds of germs and bacteria and drop them in places where they crawl. There are also people who can develop allergic reactions to cockroaches or their bodily excretions.

The main species of cockroaches that are considered as household pests in Queensland are the German Cockroach, American Cockroach and the Australian Cockroach. The German and Australian cockroaches can be found in both small rural towns and major cities. The American Cockroach is common in industrial settings where sewerage and compost heaps can be found.

Spider Control in Bongaree

Though spiders are present all-year round, they seem to be in great numbers during late summers. This is because spiders are in a mating mode and male spiders are out looking for potential mates. Very few spiders pose a threat to humans because most species of spiders try to avoid coming face to face with us.

Spiders, such as Red-Back, Funnel-web and Mouse Spiders, are venomous, and their bites must be given medical attention immediately, especially if the patient is a child or an elderly person.

Termite Control in Bongaree

Termites are a threat to homes, especially those that are located on the bush or woodlands. There are commercial treatments that you can use to prevent termites from gaining access to your home, but the best preventive strategy is to do regular termite inspections of your home and making sure no loose wood is left close to your home.

They pose to immediate threat to human health, but they feed on cellulose, a main component of wood. Unfortunately, wood is used in building modern homes. A house with plenty of timber can feed termites for years, and homeowners would not notice unless the damage becomes noticeable. Termites can cause structural damage, which can make buildings unsafe and uninhabitable.

Wasp Control

Wasps are active as soon as springs begins as they either find shelter or die during the winter months. They may be common pests, but they don’t pose any particularly significant threat. Wasp stings are common during summer and autumn. While their stings are rarely fatal, there are species that can inject huge quantities of venom that can trigger anaphylactic reactions.

If you find a wasp nest near or within your premises, don’t attempt to remove it by yourself. Call for assistance from professional pest control service to do the task.

Rodent Control in Bongaree

Rats and mice are two types of rodents that pose problems in households and businesses. They present direct threats to human health because of their ability to spread diseases via the pathogens they carry in their does. In addition, they also cause property damage because of their tendency to chew on things or stuffs such as furniture, clothing, documents, electric cables, etc.

Rodent infestations can become severe if not addressed immediately. This is because rats and mice can multiply quickly. A couple of rodents can become a big family in a short period of time, if they are not eliminated in a timely manner.

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

Because Bongaree 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 Bongaree.

  • 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.
