Redbank Plains is an older suburb but is still affordable and is popular with families. It is accessible now but is becoming even more accessible thanks to the developments happening all around the area.
To those who are considering renting or buying in Redbank Plains, it is a flood plain so black soil is common. Movement in properties built on black soil can get pretty bad. This has implications not only on the integrity of the foundation of the home but also on possible pest infestation.
Ants are common in Redbank Plains properties, usually in the kitchens, roof spaces, within walls, floors, and even gardens and trees. They can destroy gardens due to underground excavations and are an unpleasant sight when you see them in closed cupboards and containers in your kitchen and refrigerator.
Ants can also be harmful to your health because some species are carriers of pathogens that cause diseases such as dysentery.
Queensland is a high-risk zone for termite infestation. In fact, in all of Australia, 1 in 5 homes are experiencing a termite infestation. At any one time, about 20% of homeowners face some degree of termite attack. Our weather is ideal for termites to thrive as they prefer moist, warm conditions. They are most active during the spring and asummer months, though termite activity may occur throughout the year.
Termites are voracious eaters of timber, eating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means they can quickly cause severe damage to wooden structures. These pests might be eating away at your house without you knowing, so don’t wait for visible signs of infestation before you act.
Be diligent in monitoring termite population because Redbank Plain homes are likely to experience a termite attack. It is a good investment to have a termite inspection done at your property at least once a year. Call qualified pest technicians to detect early signs of termite infestations and recommend removal solutions before termites cause serious damage to your home. Once termites establish a colony, it becomes more difficult, not to mention not cheap, to undertake removal actions.
Contrary to common belief, fleas don’t bite humans. They only cling to and bite pets like dogs and cats. Their mouths cannot pierce human skin, but they can cause irritation to your pets and they will start scratching. dd
Fleas are so tiny that it is no wonder that they are difficult to detect. Despite their small size, they can reach a 20-cm vertical leap from the ground to your pet. Blood is their main and only food source, with female fleas having the ability to feed on roughly 15 times their body weight every day. Their life cycle is not long unlike other insects. They can live attached to a host pet for up to a year, but only around one or two weeks without a host.

The sight of cockroaches causes fear and disgust in many people. These small, reddish-brown insects with flat bodies have the ability to crawl and hide and in the most unlikely places. Thanks to their flat bodies, cockroaches can live and multiple in the tightest of spaces in the kitchen and other food preparation areas.
There are roughly 30 species of cockroaches, though only four species are recognised as pests. Cockroaches will search for any available organic food sources. They do have a taste for sweets, meats and starches, they will also consume items such as hair, books and decaying matter.
Cockroach prefer warm conditions and will stay in wet and dark places. They hate the light, so you won’t likely meet any during sunny summer days.
These pests can spread various diseases as they are known carriers of 33 types of bacteria, six parasitic worms and over seven other human pathogens. This makes cockroaches a danger to the health of your family and general hygiene of your property.
If you’re dealing with a cockroach infestation, it is best to let professional pest exterminators deal with it. They use advanced technologies that ensure cockroach control and extermination is complete and 100% effective.
Spiders are another insect that are common throughout Queensland. They can usually be found in the garden camped under rocks, leaf litter and bark. Spiders don’t shelter in one location, so they will roam at night, seeking food such as tiny insects and other spiders. Because they wander so much, they can also be found on ceilings, floors and walls. There can also be spiders hiding in the clothes left on the floor, curtain folds, bathrooms and laundries. They are night insects and are common during autumn and spring.
There are hundreds of species of spiders, and each have their own preferences and habits. Some spiders are poisonous, while others are harmless. In residences, Redback spiders and Whitetails can look innocuous, while the Huntsman can look threatening because of its big size. But the truth is, Huntsman are generally harmless and will not bite unless provoked. Huntsman are good pest controllers because they hunt cockroaches and other bugs for food.
If you find spiders in your home or office spaces, it is best to call a qualified pest technician who can identify the species of spiders you’re dealing with and will recommend an effective treatment so you no longer have to deal with spiders for a long time.

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