Potential Risk of Pest Infestation in Moreton Bay

The Moreton Bay Region is beautiful, boasting diverse flora and fauna and magnificent coastline and beaches. However, this natural environment also attracts many common pests. The warm and humid climate of Queensland allows pests to breed fast and quickly become a major problem for both residential and commercial property owners. These pests include termites, cockroaches, mice and rats, wasps and bees, ants, and bed bugs and ticks.

The region also draws in millions of tourists annually. The influx of people can mean more trash and food waste, which is heaven for pests such as mice and rats.

Termites

Queensland is high risk for termite attacks attack owing to its proximity to water. The Moreton Bay Region is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia and one of the most beautiful and pleasant places to live in, but being near the coast

The East-West belt of South East Queensland, stretching west from Moreton Island, through Bribie Island, Sandstone Point, Ningi, Beachmere, Toorbul, Donnybrook, Elimbah, Caboolture, Morayfield, Wamuran, D’Aguilar, Woodford and Kilcoy, remains heavily forested for the most part. This area is home to extensive termite colonies with many homes and other building structures located near and within attacking distance by termites.

The construction of today’s structures has become more complex, typically combining elevated areas with spaces built from concrete on the ground. The use of plantation softwood has also become more common.

This combination has allowed the more secretive and destructive termites to eat away at structures by hiding in parts of the home that is impossible to access due to the complexity of the design.

New constructions rely on chemical treatment under the concrete slab to deter termite attack, but the chemicals become less effective over time, allowing termites to come unimpeded into the homes.

Mosquitoes

In South East Queensland, mosquitoes are mostly active during the warmer months from September to April.

There are many types of mosquitoes in South East Queensland, but three types can bring the biggest impact to residents: Saltmarsh mosquito, Freshwater mosquito, Container breeder.

  • Saltmarsh mosquito – breed in the inter-tidal and mangrove areas of the region, including Hays Inlet, Griffin, Mango Hill, Beachmere and Bribie Island.
  • Freshwater mosquito – hatch in water that has collected along the road, in reserves, parks and people’s yards after rain.
  • Container breeder – breed in containers holding rainwater including plant saucers, tyres, buckets, water tanks and blocked gutters. They can be active during the day or night and are usually found in the shaded area around the home.

The Moreton Bay Regional Council is doing its part in managing mosquitoes, mainly with the use of BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis). It is a naturally occurring bacterium found in soils that specifically targets the larvae of mosquitoes, blackfly and fungus gnat.

Residents are also encouraged to help reduce mosquito numbers, mostly making sure any containers that can hold water (plant saucer, rainwater tank, tyres, etc.) are emptied as water can provide ideal conditions for mosquitoes and midges to breed.
