Pest Control in Petrie

Most properties in Petrie are free-standing houses. The suburb comprises new housing developments on lands that were originally used for pine plantations and agriculture.

The older part, located north of Dayboro Road, mostly features houses constructed in the 1980s and early 1990s. The south part of Dayboro Road features recently built properties, usually within the last 20-30 years.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

With the North Pine River and some of its tributaries like Yebri Creek and Sideling Creek surrounding the border of Petrie, there are many areas for rats, mic, insects and other pests to breed and invade your home.

Pests After a Rain

Brisbane has good weather throughout the year, but it does get its fair share of summer storms and hot. Humid weather. A change in weather from spring to summer also brings changes to the behaviours of insects and pests. Watch out for these pests following a downpour: cockroaches, ants, and rats and mice.

Summer Pests

Summer is the perfect time for outdoor activities, but not when you’re cooking a delicious meal and sitting down to eat and you have to shoo away flies and swat at mosquitoes and other bugs. You can keep these bugs away from your home if you know what attracts them and where to look in your home for signs of infestation. But if bugs continue to bother you, it is a good idea to call an experienced pest removal technician.

Winter Pests

Though Brisbane gets the odd temperature that drops below 10°C, our winters are pretty mild at best. Winter doesn’t get cold enough to kill pests and doesn’t stop them from invading your home during the winter months. Expect rodents like mice and rats, cockroaches and termites to be more active during the colder months.

In the case of termites, especially the subterranean termites, they slow down during the cold months but will burrow down deeper into the ground to avoid the low temperature. If your home is old and made mostly of timber, termites can do significant damage as they attempt to live, eat and breed in the warm spaces in your home.


If you live in Brisbane and any of its suburbs, then you’ve seen a silverfish. If you haven’t, then you have seen evidence of their presence in your home, shed or garage. Silverfish loves Brisbane’s humid temperature, so watch out for signs of possible infestation in your home.

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

Because Petrie 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 Petrie.

  • 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.
