Pest Control in Birnam

Birnam in a rural town in the Scenic Rim. There were 106 residents here per the 2016 Census, with 44 households.

The Albert River marks the suburb’s eastern boundary. This perennial river is the source of potable water for the town of Beaudesert.

Birnam is quite undeveloped except for a few farms in the east. The slopes of Mount Dunsinane can be seen to the northwest. The Beaudesert-Beenleigh Road passes through from south to north-east.

Though largely undeveloped, Birnam residents and properties are still vulnerable to attack by various pests that thrive in Birnam’s environment.

Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

With few residents, but acreage of farmlands, Birnam is still vulnerable from infestations from various pests, owing mainly to Australia’s environment that is ideal for the success of different species of bugs and creepy crawlies.

Ant Control

Ant infestation can occur in both commercial and residential properties if those locations offer easy access to water and food. There are 4000 known species of ants in Australia. The most common are Carpenter Ants, Coastal Brown Ants, Black House Ants, Black Garden Ants, Light Brown Ants, Fire Ants, Electric Ants and Yellow Ants.

Ants are harmless, in general, but there are species like the Fire Ants that are notorious for excruciating pain caused by their bite. Their bite can trigger an allergic in some people. If you want to stop an ant infestation, follow their pathway to find their colony. See if there is any activity near the doors, windows, carpet edges, gardens and all over the kitchen area.

Rodent Control in Birnam

Rats and mice are common in Queensland. These pests, especially rats, can be a problem in Birnam farms. They are good at looking for food and because of their small size, they can squeeze through opening as small as a coin. This means that these pests can easily find their way into your home.

They have a short breeding cycle, which makes them successful at reproducing in a short period of time. Rodents are nocturnal and generally stay out of the presence of humans.

Rats and mice not only minor inconvenience if they decide to live in your home, but they also spread diseases, which makes them a health risk to people.

Spider Control

There are thousands of species of spiders living in Australia. There are lethal ones, but most are harmless. However, they can be a serious problem for people with a fear of spiders.

Spiders will often be found in quiet and undisturbed areas of structures as well as yards and gardens. They need other insects to survive. This is why other insect infestations are absent if spiders are thriving in your property. Another reason to address spiders immediately is because they attract dangerous spiders. They could enter and infest your property and prey on the common spiders that are already in your premises.

Birnam Termite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

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

Because Birnam 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 Birnam.

  • 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.
