Pest Control in Redland Bay

Redland Bay is a bayside suburb in Redland City. It was known as simply Redland on old maps, most likely because of its red soil.

As of the 2016 Census, Redland Bay had a population of 14,958 people.

It was primarily a farming and fishing settlement until the mid-20th century, when some of the farms were subdivided and transportation infrastructures were modernised to allow commuting to Brisbane, which is located about 35 km away.

It serves as a port for vessels plying various islands, including Russel Island, Macleay Island, Karragarra Island, Lamb Island and North Stradbroke Island.

This charming suburb offers a genuine country vibe. Redland Bay has a very friendly community, with plenty of schools and shops.

It may be primarily a bayside residential community, but it also features large rural and conservation areas. The waters of Moreton Bay can easily be accessed via a local boat ramp.

Residents can enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle with many recreational facilities dotting the suburb, including an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, cricket oval, bike and walking pathways, fishing clubs, foreshore trails, and more.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

While Redland Bay offers a quiet, peaceful country atmosphere, pests are still a problem, especially if property owners are lax in making sure any pest attack is under control. The very environment and climate of Redland Bay makes it a perfect foraging and nesting site for pests such as termites, rodents, ants, and cockroaches.

Spider Removal

Spiders are not only a nuisance in any commercial or residential properties, but some species inject venom through their bite.

Spiders are usually found in warm, dark places where they can hide their activity, one of them being to spin webs.

It is easy to tell when you have a spider infestation in your property. You will see crawling spiders, spider webs and their egg sacs.

Spiders vary in size, colour and shape as well as behaviour. The most common species of spiders around Redland Bay are: Black Widow Spiders, Brown Recluse Spiders, Common House Spiders, Jumping Spiders, Long-Bodied Cellar Spiders and Wolf Spiders.

A cluttered environment, dark, unkempt areas in your house, and the presence of other tiny pests in your house provide an ideal nest for spiders. While spiders are considered as natural pest controllers because they eat other pests, spiders themselves can become a nuisance for property owners.

For the spiders that bite, all cases are painful, but some cases can be fatal if not given medical attention immediately. Fortunately, the availability of an effective anti-venom prevents dying from spider bite.

Cockroach Control 

Cockroaches have been in existence for millions of years, and they are one of the common pests found in buildings.

They may appear harmless crawling across your walls, floors or kitchen area, but they are one of the deadliest pests around. While foraging for food, they travel through dirty places. Once they gain entry into your house, the germs, bacteria and viruses that they may be carrying will infect your house too.

These pathogens cause various deadly diseases, including Salmonellosis, Plague, Campylobacteriosis, Listeriosis, Typhoid Fever, Cholera, Gastroenteritis, Dysentery, Leprosy and Giardia.

Common types of cockroaches found around Redland Bay are

  • American Cockroaches
  • Brown Banded Cockroaches
  • German Cockroaches
  • Oriental Cockroaches.

Some signs of cockroach infestation are:

  • strange smell in your house
  • droppings
  • shed skins and smear marks
  • sightings of dead or live cockroaches.

Silverfish Treatment

One of the oldest pests found in Redland Bay, silverfish are small, wingless insects that love starch and sugar — they feed on books, wallpapers, curtains.

They are not known to cause harm to the health of humans, but they can sure cause significant damage to personal belongings,

These fast-moving, nocturnal pests can usually be found in dark places, such as kitchen basements, cupboards, wardrobes, etc. They are particularly fond of items that contain cellulose, carbs, sugars and starches.

Silverfish don’t have any real impact on people’s lives, in terms of spreading diseases. However, silverfish infestations should still be addressed because they can destroy your most prized possessions like clothing, books, photographs, among other important documents.

Rodent Control

Rats and mice can wreak havoc to household items, agricultural lands and other spaces.

Exterminating them manually will not work in the long run. Professional pest control specialists have the advance tools and technology to make sure rodent control is successful and effective.

You will know if you’re dealing with a rodent infestation if you see rodent droppings, chewed furniture and other wooden objects, visible holes in walls and floors, and more. There is also a strange odour in your property where rats or mice are probably always hanging out.

Ant Treatment 

Ants are impressive as they have no ears, but they go around using the vibration produced by their feet.

However, it can be frustrating having ants in your home because they are almost impossible to eradicate. These social insects live in colonies. Using their highly developed smell-detecting skill, they can find where to find their next food source.

Ants prefer sweet or sugary food items. They will stay with you if you have a good amount of food and water laid out openly for them to forage.

Ants and ant infestation must be taken seriously because some species, like the fire ants, bite and sting, can cause extreme discomfort. Serious infestations are known to cause property damage in the form of electrical short-circuits due to ants’ settling and breeding habits.

Termite Treatment

Termites live in colonies and mostly prefer to stay underground to do their damage. They eat dead plants and wood, so if these things are near your home, it pays to be extra vigilant of potential termite attacks.

There are different types of termites found in the Redland Bay area:

  • Subterranean Termites – mostly live underground and the most destructive species of termites;
  • Formosan Termites – aggressive termites that can create large colonies and destroy a large portion of wooden material quickly;
  • Dampwood Termites – larger than other termite species and prefer high moisture content area;
  • Drywood Termites – they hate soil and love deadwood materials; don’t need water much, but can usually be found near leaky pipes and water heaters.
  • Conehead Termites – like ants, they forage on the ground to search for food.

There are many signs of termite infestation, including clicking sounds coming from your walls or floors, hollow wooden materials when you knock on them, flying termites, and visible mud tubes on your walls.

Redland Bay Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Redlands area, where Redland Bay is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Redland Bay is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Termite Images Suburb

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 Redland Bay.

  • 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.
