Browns Plains is a suburb in the city of Logan, with a population of 6,308 people.
Browns Plains is the name of both the suburb and the former estates. The suburb is an outer city regional centre under the South East Queensland Regional Plan.
The primary waterway in the area is the Scrubby Creek, a tributary of Slacks Creek, which is a tributary of Logan River.
Browns Plains offers an old-school vibe, a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood and a broad range of convenience right at your fingertips. The homes are affordable, with many built in the 1970s and 1980s still standing strong. There are also newer free-standing houses and town homes.
People who love the outdoors will love Browns Plains, with its 18 parks, which cover almost 10% of the suburb’s land area.
The warm and humid climate makes Southeast Queensland vulnerable to pest infestations throughout the year. Thus, homeowners are advised to have regular pest inspections even if they don’t suspect any pest activity in their property as an effective preventive measure.
Outdoor activities are a popular in Australia, so pests like mosquitoes are a huge problem. Our near-perfect weather allows different types of pests to thrive. Mosquitoes are killer insects, causing millions of deaths even up to this day. In Australia, several diseases are transmitted through mosquito bites – Dengue Fever, Australian Encephalitis and Ross River fever. They also disrupt life and social activities due to the constant buzzing and biting.
Mosquitoes need water, specifically stagnant water, to breed. This means the first point of prevention as well as treatment is the removal of stagnant bodies of water around or within the vicinity of your property. A qualified pest control technician will inspect your property and be able to identify any potential breeding areas where they may be mosquito eggs or larvae.
Because termites are not always easily detected, it is important to know the common warning signs of a possible termite infestation. The damage that termites can inflict is determined by the type of termites and the size of the colony to which it belongs. Here are the signs to watch out for, especially for those residing in hotspot areas in Logan City, including Browns Plains:
Termites can cause significant damage to properties and it may take a long time for them to be detected. Regular inspection and prevention treatment can provide the best protection for your home.
The problematic rodents in all of Australia, including Browns Plains, are introduced species that have adapted well to Australia’s natural environment. These species are the Norway Rat (Sewer or Brown Rat), Roof Rat, and House Mouse.
Rats and mice are intelligent creatures, so they will not easily be eradicated. These pests are also prolific breeders, so an infestation must be dealt with immediately.
Rodents gnaw at materials constantly, causing damage to structures and electrical wiring. They spoil food and urinate as they move from place to place potentially transmitting diseases.

Ants are foragers and scavengers, but a few species are known as predators. These insects are common because they are a common sight in gardens, around buildings and even inside homes and buildings.
A few species can chew through electrical wirings and there are also those that bite or sting. Ants are move active during the warmer months and often becomes a nuisance in buildings during the hottest summer months.
The species that can invade the places where people live, work and play are: Argentine Ants, Fire Ants, Black House Ants, Coastal Brown Ants and Green Ants.
There are six species of cockroaches that are considered as pests as they pose health risks to humans: German Cockroach, American Cockroach, Brown-banded Cockroach, Australian Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach and Smokey-Brown Cockroach.
They can enter structures in various ways: shopping bags or cardboard packaging, through crevices and plumbing pipes, so make sure your home or property is always well-maintained.
Cockroaches can contaminate food and food preparation areas with their vomit, faeces, egg cases and moulted skins. They carry allergens that cause asthma as well as pathogens that cause serious diseases.
These insects spread fear in many people, but just a few of them are actually dangerous. The most dangerous spider in Australia is the Sydney funnel-web and the Redback spider. Fortunately, no one has been killed by these spiders in nearly 40 years because of the availability of anti-venom. Both these spiders are highly aggressive and should be avoided at all cost.
The white-tailed spiders, mouse spiders and trapdoor spiders bite, but their bite only cause pain and swelling. They’d rather avoid humans, in general, but will turn aggressive if they are threatened. Experts advise treating spiders with caution, especially if you can’t recognise which species they belong to.
This insect with a fish-like appearance has a long antenna and six legs that allow it to scurry off fast. They are small, but they are destructive. They feed on personal belongings made of cellulose or starch such as books, photographs, stored food products, carpets, clothing, etc.
Often found in dark, damp places, silverfish can multiply fast. This makes them difficult to control in large numbers. When a silverfish infestation gets out of hand, professional treatment is needed.

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