Beaudesert is a rural town in the Scenic Rim Region, with 6,395 residents.
The suburb is located 70 km southwest of Brisbane and west of the Gold Coast.
Located where the Mount Lindesay Highway crosses the road from Nerang and Boonah, the town lies between Logan and Albert Rivers.
The local economy is mainly dependent on agriculture and tourism.
It is a quiet country town that offers a variety of amenities including good schools, public transportation, green spaces, cafes and restaurants. It also has a racecourse, a 50-year-old swimming pool, public library, gyms, showgrounds, caravan park and more.
Here are some pests that can potentially infest Beaudesert properties and businesses.
In nature, termites play an important role, specifically in the recycling of organic matters and nutrients back to the soil. Problems arise when termites enter a structure and begin to feed on the timber elements of the structure.
Termites are ancient insects that are often mistaken for ants. But their resemblance is only superficial. Never mistake termites for ants as these could cost you thousands of dollars of repairs.
These pests avoid light, making it difficult to detect and identify them once they start infesting your home.
Ants may not be destructive, but they can be a nuisance both outdoors and indoors. They can infest your garden and build a home in your roof and wall cavities.
Black Ants and Coastal Brown Ants are the most common species. Green Ants build their nest in the yard and along paths. They deliver a painful bite, which can set off allergic reactions in some people.
Ants search for food in unhygienic places like trash bins. The germs and bacteria they pick from these places are then transferred to food and surfaces when ants crawl on them.
These are good enough reasons to eliminate them if you discover them in your property
Cockroaches like Australian Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach, German Cockroach, American Cockroach and Oriental Cockroach are common, but they can be deadly. They carry bacteria on their bodies from hanging out in dirty places like sewers, drains and garbage areas.
Exposure to cockroaches can cause different diseases such as dysentery, typhoid fever, hepatitis, etc. They are one of the most common pests found in residential and commercial buildings. Cockroaches contaminate food, surfaces, kitchen utensils and furnishings.
Cockroaches breed rapidly so that immediate pest control treatment should be administered immediately before the infestation becomes extensive.

There are thousands of species of spiders found in Australian. Homes and properties can be visited by Black House Spiders, Branded Orb Spiders, Brown Trapdoor Spiders, Funnel-web Spiders, Huntsman Spiders, Redback Spiders, White-tailed Spiders and Wolf Spiders.
Most species of spiders are not aggressive, but venomous spiders like the Funnel-web and Redback should be avoided, especially by children and the elderly.
Rats and mice have been a pest throughout the centuries and remain a major concern as they contaminate food and spread diseases.
The most common rodent pests in Australia are the House Mouse, Roof Rat and Norway Rat. These pests will find leftover food, food scraps and even pet food that are not properly stored. When they do, they will move into your home and build a nest, especially if the colder months are approaching.
Rats and mice can increase quickly, so an immediate rodent infestation solution is important.
Though generally harmless, silverfish is a nuisance to have in the home. They are known to contaminate food and damage personal belongings, such as clothing and curtains.
Silverfish is not easy to eliminate because they tend to hide from humans, and they move quickly. They also tend to be found in locations that are rarely disturbed such as roof voids, wardrobes and stored cartons. This is why silverfish can go undetected for a long time.
Wasps should be removed immediately because they can be fast when building a hive or nest. By then, their population could have grown significantly, making removal and treatment even more dangerous.
They are considered beneficial pests to the environment, but thy can be dangerous to people and animals because of their painful sting. Some people can develop severe allergic reactions to a wasp sting.
If you suspect or discover a wasp nest in the vicinity or within your property, call for professional assistance to remove it. Wasps are aggressive when they feel threatened and can swarm and sting unsuspecting victims all at once.

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