Rats and mice are not only annoying, but they are capable of great destruction in your home. They are also dangerous because they can pass on diseases by contaminating food with their urine and faeces.
Mice are omnivorous creatures and prefer cereals and seeds. Rats are also omnivorous and eat fruits and vegetables, cereals and grains.

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