Alexandra Headland, a coastal locality of Maroochydore in the Sunshine Coast, is sandwiched between Maroochydore CBD and Mooloolaba.
As of 2016, there were 3,958 residents in Alexandra Headland.
Known to locals as “Alex”, it is an exciting seaside destination that offers great surfing and holiday experiences, as well as cozy dining and bar scenes.
Life revolves around the beach in Alexandra Headland, featuring the shortest beach in the Maroochydore area and the best surfing in the rocky headlands at Alexandra Headland Beach. But the area is not all about the water. There is plenty of green spaces and playground for families and a skate park for the more daring locals.
Along Alexandra Parade there are casual cafes, restaurants and skateboard and surf shops mixed with holiday properties that offer amazing beachfront views.
Alexandra Headland properties are susceptible to different pests like termites, mosquitoes, rats and mice, spiders, etc. Pest control intervention done by professionals is often required to address the infestation effectively and efficiently.
Cockroaches are health hazards because they can spread bacteria that causes serious illnesses. They have been known to cause salmonella, dysentery, etc.
Of the 450 species of cockroaches in Australia, the most common are Australian Cockroach, American Cockroach and German Cockroach. Other cockroach species that can be found in the country include Oriental Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach, and the Smoky Brown Cockroach.
Cockroaches, like many other insects, serve a purpose in the environment. But cockroaches that dwell with humans are only a tiny percentage of all cockroach species. Eradicating them will not cause any environmental imbalance as they are pests that post health, economic and social risks to human population.
Termites cause more damage to Australian properties than floods and fires combined. It can be an economic burden for homeowners because termite damage is typically not covered by building and contents insurance.
These wood-feeding pests are all over Australia because of its sub-tropical climate. Subterranean termites are the most common species in Queensland and can attack residential properties.
Though fascinating, they are highly destructive creatures. Termite attack is highly probable in Queensland, so an annual inspection of properties is recommended.
There are many reasons why a rodent infestation is bad news. They contaminate food, damage property with their gnawing habit, and pose health risk to humans.
Rats and mice can spread diseases through different ways, including through their droppings, saliva, direct contact, etc. Because they reproduce fast, you must take action immediately when you see their presence in your property.

Mosquitoes are not just annoying; they are deadly, too. They have killed millions of people throughout history through their fatal bite. Mosquitoes are the cause of serious diseases including Malaria, Dengue, Zika Virus, and more.
To avoid a mosquito infestation, eliminate standing water around your premises, as this is where mosquitoes lay their eggs. Make sure that water doesn’t collect in items such as rainwater tanks, planters, tires, potted plant saucers, bird baths, etc.
There are more than 2000 species of spiders in Australia, but a significant portion of them pose no danger to humans. However, it doesn’t mean it’s fine to share spaces with these creepy crawlies.
Spiders are generally found outdoors, but they will seek shelter indoors when the weather is too hot, too cold or too wet. If they gain access into your home, spiders will be hiding in dark, secluded areas. This is why we find spiders in basements and garages.
If your home is harbouring other pests, expect to attract spiders because other inspects are the meal of spiders. Spiders may be natural pest controllers, but you still need to seriously try to avoid an infestation.
Silverfish maybe small, but they have strong mouths that are capable of chewing on household items such as clothes, paper, wallpapers, etc. They’re not vectors of bacteria or diseases, but their faeces produce an odour.
They can be found almost anywhere in your home, but most especially in dark, undisturbed spaces such as walls, roof areas and under furniture, as they prefer to hide their presence from humans.
Silverfish will also eat human food, and they have a preference for starchy foods, like cereals, grains as well as the packages they come in with. They are very fast and agile, allowing them to remain undetected for a long time and difficult to catch.

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