Potential Risk of Pest Infestation

Redlands is located in south-east Queensland, roughly 26 km south-east of the Brisbane CBD.

Major mainland suburbs include Capalaba, Cleveland, Victoria Point and Redland Bay.

One of the ways to determine an area’s vulnerability to pest infestation, like termites, ants, etc., is its geography. In the case of Redland City, it is bounded by Moreton Bay and North Stradbroke Island in the north and east, Gold Coast and Logan Cities in the south, and Brisbane City in the west.

Having a large population and plenty of things to do, such as shopping, fishing, dining, etc., pests are not far behind, especially if hygiene is taken for granted. It will attract of pests such as termites, cockroaches, rodents, ants and spiders.

Different Types of Pests That Can Invade Your Home


Termites thrive in warm, moist climates and many homes in Redland City offer an ideal eating and nesting ground for white ants and termites.

In Capalaba, there has been an increase in termite infestations in the older areas, causing more than $1 M of timber damage.

In a CSIRO survey of termite incidence across Australia, here are the most interesting findings:

  • The mean house age in QLD is 20.
  • Timber was the most common framing material in QLD.
  • Timber and concrete were the most common flooring material in QLD
  • About 25% of people surveyed did not know if or how their home was protected against entry by termites.
  • Older houses carry a higher termite risk.
  • House construction type does not influence termite incidence inside, but bad building practices will have an impact.

Many pest management specialists have found people will most likely not know about termite infestation until damage is done because most live termite activity is not visible.

Red imported fire ants and yellow crazy ants have the potential to be found in the Redlands.

Red imported fire ants are small, coppery brown with a very painful sting. Fire ants are a category 1 restricted pest under the Biosecurity Act 2014. Their colony is usually found in open areas like lawns, pastures, along roadsides and in unused cropland.

Yellow crazy ant has a body that is long and slender. It is known for its erratic walking style, which is particularly obvious when they are disturbed. Yellow crazy ants build colony in moist, disturbed habitats such as rainforest margins/gaps and agricultural land, particularly agroforestry.

In northern Australia, yellow crazy ants were initially thought be prefer rainforest, but new research found that they can survive in harsh, rocky, dry areas in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory.

Yellow crazy ant is included in the list of 100 worst invasive alien species in the world by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. It is also a restrictive tramp ant under the Biosecurity Act 2014.


In South Queensland, including Redlands, spiders are very common. Though these pests prefer wilder and woody environment, they are known to wander into homes and find areas of it where they can thrive, including backyards, garden sheds, and mailboxes.

Suburban environments like Redland Bay, Victoria Point and Mt Cotton are often visited by these nightmarish spiders.

Mosquitoes / Midge

Midge populations vary from year to year and could depend on temperatures and rainfall. An unusual swarm descended in 2019, especially in Victoria Point, Redland Bay, Thorneside and the Southern Moreton Bay Islands.

Aside from the fact some people react badly to midge bites, the unusual swarm is seriously affecting the outdoor lifestyle of residents, with many of them complaining of being unable to go outside between the early hours of the morning and from three o’clock onwards.

The Redland City Council warns of using pesticides because of the risk of harming other insects and other creatures that play crucial roles in the ecosystem, such as butterflies and bees.


Invasive weeds are also a major problem in Redlands. They can cause damage as these unwanted weeds can dominate native plants, harming biodiversity and agriculture.

Many environmental weeds came from overseas. They fall under the following categories: groundcovers, aquatic, vines, trees and shrubs.

Redlands Coast homeowners and businesses have a legal biosecurity responsibility. This means residents should know about biosecurity risks on properties and how to manage them, as well as the fines associated with failure to comply with those responsibilities.
