Boronia Heights is a suburb in the city of Logan, located to the west of Park Ridge.
It had 7,862 residents according to the 2016 Census.
It is home to the Boronia Bushland Reserve, which is great for bushwalking and for picnics and barbeque parties. It is a sanctuary to a range of interesting animal species, including eastern grey kangaroos, bandicoots, goannas, possums and koalas. The area features plenty of scribbly gums, named after the scribbly lines found on its grey trunks.
There are seven parks, which cover almost 11% of the suburb’s total land area.
Separate houses are predominant in this low-density residential area. Living in Boronia Heights is living close to nature but close to all city amenities. It has good schools, dining options, and recreational spaces.
Boronia Heights is a quiet, beautiful neighbourhood, but pests, such as termites, rats, mice, spiders, etc., are always there to take the first opportunity to invade the homes of unwary or neglectful homeowners.
A termite infestation is something to be dreaded by property owners. This is especially for Logan, including the suburbs of Boronia Heights, where termites are likely to strike at any time. This is because these wood-eating pests love warm local climate and the bushland and wilderness areas.
If you see termites around your property, or you suspect termite activity within your residence, take action immediately. Termites can gain access to a building and cause significant and expensive structural damage in a short period of time.
These tiny insects are typically black or dark brown in colour, but other species can be reddish or yellowish in colour. The worker ants are distinguished by their large mandibles. Ants are so tiny that they can enter a home through the tiniest cracks.
They are one of the most hardworking insects, always in search of food and water, which they then take back to the rest of the group in their colony. The colony can be located anywhere in your property – indoors, outdoors, walls, lawns, roof voids, etc.
For a successful ant control, identifying the type of ant causing the problem is important. This is why the job is best left to professional pest control technicians. Once the species of ant is identified, they will be able to understand its life cycle and behaviour around the infested area.
Once rodents get inside your property, they will destroy your personal belongings and valuables including clothing, electrical wires, furniture, etc. They will also contaminate food, which can be dangerous if the contaminated food is accidentally consumed by humans. Rodent carry pathogens that can cause serious diseases.
Traps and baits may not be completely effective. For rodent infestation, professional pest control technicians can use their knowledge and advance tools to implement the most effective rodent control treatment.

Cockroaches are highly adaptable, but they mostly prefer warm environments. They come out at night to search for food and water, so they are normally found in bathrooms, kitchen sinks, kitchen cupboards, etc.
Their flat, round bodies allow cockroaches to easily move from place to place through the connected plumbing pipes. There are 30 species of cockroaches that are known to encroach on human habitat, and four of them are considered major household pests. They are the American Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, German Cockroach and Tropical Cockroach.
A cockroach infestation shouldn’t be taken lightly, regardless of how common cockroaches in homes. They carry bacteria and germs that can cause major diseases when transmitted to humans.
Mosquitoes are another prevalent pest in Australia. Not only are they annoying, they are also dangerous. They have killed millions of people throughout history, and continue to kill up to this day. The most common diseases caused by mosquito bites are Dengue Fever, Ross Rive Virus Fever, Encephalitis and Barmah Forest Virus Disease.
In addition, mosquitoes also cause a major disruption in various types of human activities, including recreational, social and occupational. The constant buzzing and biting is enough to annoy and put a stop of any type of activity.
Spiders are eight-legged creatures that cause fright to most people. There are various species of spiders and come in all shapes, sizes and colours. One of the annoying things about spiders is their webs, which they use to trap their prey. Other species are aggressive in that they will stalk and hunt their prey.
A DIY approach to spider control is by using a bowl or cup to trap a spider and throw it outside. However, this can cause a disaster as spiders are agile. To significantly reduce the spider population in your home, hire the services of a professional pest control company.

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