Bells Creek is a rural town in the Sunshine Coast, with a population of 94 people.
It lied 8 km west of the suburb of Caloundra. The Bruce Highway passes through Bells Creek from the south-west to the north-west. The Mooloolah River National Park, which covers an area of 830.9 hectares, lies on the north-western part of the suburb. To the south-west is part of the Beerwah State Forest.
Most of the suburb is freehold and is utilised for farming.
Though there are not a lot of residents and homes in Bells Creek, pests are still a problem. These pests such as rodents, termites, ants and more, can cause damage and destruction if ignored or not taken seriously.
Cockroaches are an important part of the ecosystem, but those that manage to access homes and businesses are considered pests. They carry and spread bacteria and germs that cause allergies, fever and asthma.
As they crawl through your home, they leave urine, faeces, regurgitated saliva and digestive fluids, which may come into contact with humans, food and surfaces. These bodily fluids can cause various health problems, including food poisoning, typhoid, urinary tract infection, et.
The highly social and well-organised ants can be found all over the world except Antarctica. Ants are a common pest problem, but they still need to be addressed when they are present in your home.
The common ant species in Australia are Carpenter Ants, Caribbean Crazy Ants, Fire Ants. It is challenging to deal with ants because of the sheer diversity of their subspecies. If you see ants running around your home or property, call licensed pest control technicians to diagnose the problem and apply the proper treatments to eliminate your ant infestation.
Spiders are harmless, in general, but they have a bad reputation, causing some people to develop real fears for them. They are an essential aspect of our ecosystem, but some species can also be a pest.
Their webs can make your home look dirty and unkempt. They can also be dangerous with species with a venomous bite. A bite from a venomous spider should be taken seriously because it might be fatal if not given immediate medical attention.

Rodents are gnawing mammals that include rats and mice. The need to control their constantly growing incisors is what compels them to chew any item, including furniture, cables and more.
The common rodents that are treated by Bells Creek pest control specialists are Brown Rats, Black Rats, Norway Rats, Roof Rats and House Mice. One way to tell rats from mice is that mice grow much bigger than rats.
To enter and exit a dwelling, rodents will chew through wood and sheetrock, which can damage electrical cables and plumbing fixtures that might be in their way. Rodent infestation must be treated professionally because these pests pose health risks because they carry bacteria and viruses that cause a number of illnesses such as typhus and leptospirosis.
These tiny, wingless insects appear silver or grey in colour and have tapering tails and antennae. They may not be noticed by people immediately because they are nocturnal and they prefer dark and humid areas.
They may be small, but silverfish are destructive, thanks to their diet. They will eat anything that contains starches, including book bindings, wallpapers, photos, carpets, clothing. Silverfish can also contaminate food, especially those with carbohydrates and starches.
Like other suburbs and towns in Queensland, Bells Creek are also under constant threat by termite attack. It is better to take preventive strategies against termites because they are tricky to find and get rid of.

The best way to deal with constant termite threat is prevention. Call your local pest control technician to make your home safer with the best termite prevention strategies.

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