Potential Risks for Pest Infestation
Similar to other Moreton Bay region suburbs, Strathpine has its share of pest problems, including cockroaches, ants, termites, etc. The area’s climate and environment are simply ideal for various types of pests to thrive.
Termite Treatment Srathpine
Termites are more likely to cause major damage to properties than fires or floods. They are difficult to get rid of, their droppings pose health risks, and building and contents insurance policies don’t cover termite damage.
Homeowners in Queensland must be extra vigilant when it comes to termites because the state is considered a high-risk zone for termite attacks. Though they’re considered silent destroyers, there are signs of termite infestations.
Here are some of them: clicking and chewing sounds within your walls or any wooden structure of your home; your windows or doors are not closing properly, discarded wings on your window sills; mud tubes on your exterior walls or near your property’s foundations; and the smell of mould or mildew especially near what looks like coffee grinds, these things may actually be termite frass.
Termites prefer warm, dark and moist areas because these conditions are perfect for their colonies. Don’t attract termites by leaving paper or cardboard laying around, ignoring leak or drainage problems, or putting the garden hose close to your house where the water from it can wet your house.
Rodents have been a serious problem in Australia ever since the arrival of the First Fleet.
Another one of those destructive pests, rodents have been known to cause house fires by chewing on wires. They can also spread diseases, including through the fleas, mites and ticks that they carry with them.
More than annoying, rodents also bite, contaminate your food supply, and urinate to mark their territory and defecate continuously throughout the day. Even the air we breathe can be contaminated by rodent urine and faeces.
Make sure to watch out for these signs of rodent infestation, so you can immediately remedy the situation: holes around your home; gnawed personal items; scratching, chewing and squeaking sounds; greasy trails or rub marks, and rodent droppings.

Cockroach Treatment Strathpine
Cockroaches actually top the list of most hated pests in homes and commercial properties. Yes, they don’t bite humans often, but they are dirty. They spread bacteria on the surfaces they crawl on. Cockroaches also vomit and excrete staphylococcus, streptococcus and the poliovirus onto food and surfaces.
These pests also multiply at a fast rate, so if you spot a cockroach, deal with it immediately. Here are the cockroach species that you are likely to see in Australia: American cockroaches, German cockroaches and Oriental cockroaches.
The ants in your home can be controlled by commercial insect sprays. However, the ants you see are only there to forage for food. Their colony is often hidden deep underground and can contain millions of ants.
Green ants and Bullfrog ants and their colonies should be dealt with immediately because they become aggressive when their nests are threatened. Their bites are painful, and some people can be allergic to ant bites,
Ants will basically eat whatever food they can find. There are also species that prey on other small insects, spiders and arthropods. These insects might be bigger than ants, but are easily overpowered, killed and cut into small pieces by the ants working together as a team.
Many ant species love sweets and will collect nectar from flowers and honeydew, a sugary substance produced by aphids and other sap-sucking insects. Other species will gather the seeds from plants and grasses.
Ants will usually be found in bathrooms, toilets, kitchens in search of water, and in kitchens and pantries in search of food.
Bee sting hurts, but wasp sting hurts even more. What’s even worse is that these stings can cause anaphylactic shock. This fact alone makes a professional wasp control specialist essential if you see a wasp hive within or near your property.
There are thousands of wasp species in Australia, but there are two that you would most likely encounter: Paper Wasp and European Wasp.
The bright yellow and black paper wasps are likely to be seen in gardens, while the similarly-coloured European wasps give an extremely painful sting, and will more likely zip around rather than hover.
If you find a wasp nest, don’t disturb it or attempt to remove it yourself. Call a professional pest control company that has the tools and know-how to remove the hive safely and effectively.

TERMITE INFESTATION IN STRATHPINE QLD
Strathpine Termite Hazard Level
High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Moreton Bay area, where Strathpine is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Strathpine 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 Strathpine.
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.

Redback spiders live well in gardens and they love hiding behind items such as boxes and other unused articles you have moved outside the house.
