From being the first area of European settlements, a bright future is in store for Redcliffe. The gentrification outlook has been embraced by both the government and local business owners and this trend is expected to continue as more people choose to buy their homes in this area.
Away from Redcliffe Parade, which feels like a holiday destination, the residential areas feature houses of all shapes and sizes, some are built on grounds while others are on stilts.
Redcliffe is a hidden piece of paradise but similar to other suburbs that are experiencing rapid growth and development, hidden behind that progress is the issue with pests.
The pests that are most likely to be an issue in Redcliffe and gets the most complaints are: rodents, spider, silverfish, possums and birds.
The problem with possums can be quite tricky because possums are considered as both a pest and a protected animal under Queensland law. Because of this, it is important to handle the removal of possums from your property with the help of expert possum removalists.
Over the years, solar panel installation has grown significantly in Redcliffe and so has the number of birds nesting under or around them. Pigeons, in particular, can create different kinds of problems. Pigeon excrements attract all kinds of pests including cockroaches, rats, mites and ticks. If ignored, it becomes a smelly mess and can even damage your solar panels. By bird proofing your solar panels, pigeons can no longer have access to their nests under your solar panels.
In addition, Brisbane’s warm and humid climate is a major factor for the high cockroach population. You can expect to find them in confined spaces like wall cracks, under sinks and cupboards. Cockroaches also likes heat, so they can usually be found near or under appliances like heaters.
Termites can also be a problem as the area has parklands and scattered forests, near the bay (though it is not flood-prone) and has gum trees. These pests love timber and moisture, which most houses in Redcliffe have in abundance. Termites are commonly found in the bathroom, laundry and kitchen – the parts of the house that are wet and most likely have leakage issues.
Rodents like mice and rats become active more than usual as winter approaches. These pests begin to look for comfy places to build nests, which is likely your ceiling. Your local pest specialist can identify the species of mice or rat you’re dealing with and have the best way to remove them.

These pests can travel locally or internationally incognito in a traveller’s clothes.

In addition to making sure your home doesn’t have the things that pests like such as food and water, an annual pest inspection is important to stay on top of any pest problem. With their years of experience, pest specialists can easily identify the source of the problem and offer an effective course of action.
