Spiders usually hide in dark, empty spaces, which is why cob webs are located in hard-to-reach places such as garages, cupboards, attics, basements, ceilings, roof, cavities, and more.

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Scenic Rim area, where Aratula is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Aratula 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 Aratula.

  • 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.
