The residential suburb of Springfield is located on the south-western border of Ipswich City and is 25 km south-west of the Brisbane CBD.
Greater Springfield and its suburbs are master-planned to offer the lifestyle and quality of life possible, health and educational services and facilities easily accessible by residents.
A huge portion of its land it dedicated to open spaces, including parks, gardens, recreational centres and other facilities to allow residents to enjoy and maintain an active lifestyle.
With great shopping, education, healthcare, residential and public transportation options available, the leafy and established suburb of Springfield offers different types of housing.
There are a diverse range of pests that pose a threat in Springfield homes and commercial properties. Its proximity to conservation parks made it attractive to pests that cannot be found in the city. Feral cats, dogs and bird pests such as pigeons are common in properties that are near these parks.
Ticks and fleas are also a concern, especially in household where there are pets. Springfield waterways also provide the ideal breeding environments for wasps, flies, ants and other pests.
Springfield and surrounding suburbs are high risk for termite attacks because homes are being cleared to give way to new developments. These timber-loving pests are capable of destroying your precious home. Not only that, but termites can also tear through furniture, documents and other structures if left unchecked.
If your property backs into a bushland where there are gumtrees, termites may not be far behind. If you see a termite nest on your property, you can treat and remove the nest and even the true. But if the nest is not on your property, call the local council for advice. Never knockdown or destroy a nest, as the termites will just run in all direction – even towards your home. The best thing to do is call your local termite specialist who knows what to do.
Fleas bite warm-blooded animals, including dogs, humans, rabbits, rats, mice and more. They are usually brought into the home by pets from outside. The female fleas lay small, white eggs on the hairs, feathers or in the habitat of their host. These eggs are loosely attached, so they can easily fall off onto the ground, floors, beddings, furniture, etc. These wingless, blood-sucking insects carry diseases, so a flea infestation is the last thing you want in your home. If you think fleas have invaded your home, call your local pest control experts for effective treatment and control.
Out of the more than 3,000 species of cockroaches found around the world, about 400 are in Australia. The house-invading species differ in colour, from brown to black. These nasty and smelly pests prefer the warm, moist and dark areas of your property.
Infestations will typically develop around buildings and structures that have food, shelter and with the ideal conditions of temperature and humidity.
Australia shares its natural environment with rats, mice and rodents, which are known to carry and spread a variety of diseases. And if rodents enter and build a nest in your home, they could also bring with them harmful pathogens as well as fleas and other parasites.
Rodents may be determined to get into your home, especially to seek shelter and warmth as winter approaches, but there are ways to keep away these pests from your home.

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