Booroobin is a suburb located at the centre of the Moreton Bay Region and the Sunshine Coast Region. According to the 2016 Census, Booroobin has 260 residents.
A part of the Bellthorpe National Park is located on the suburb’s southeast. It is the source of the Stanley River and the Mary River.
It is home to the Policeman Spur Environmental Reserve, a nature reserve for the protection of koalas. In addition, it has three parks covering almost 9.4% of its total area.
The charming suburb of Booroobin has few residents, but they are still vulnerable to attack of pests, such as termites, cockroaches, ants, rodents, etc.
Cockroaches are ancient insects that are nearly indestructible. They love places where there is easy access to food and water. The common types of cockroaches are German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, American Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach, Australian Cockroach and Smoky Brown Cockroach.
A cockroach infestation can turn serious very quick because these pests multiply very fast. The females will only mate once, but they will remain pregnant for the rest of their life. Cockroaches need to be exterminated immediately because of the health risks they pose on humans.
Mosquitoes are annoying and dangerous because of their ability to spread discomfort and diseases (both delivered through bites) among human and animal populations. The females’ main hosts for blood are humans, but they are also known to bite animals like reptiles, birds, etc. Their bite is not that painful, but their saliva can cause itchiness and rashes.
These pests lay their eggs in standing water. So, the first defense against them is to dispose old tires, buckets, cans and other containers where water can accumulate.
Silverfish are silver-grey in colour and are quick and agile. They are nocturnal and prefer damp and dark areas, such as bookshelves and cupboards. Silverfish feed mainly on sugar and starchy materials that are easily accessible in households. They will feed on mould, paper, glue in books, book bindings, photographs, linen, silk, carpets and other household items.
These insects are not known to cause diseases in humans, but they are nonetheless destructive. One of the best ways to prevent silverfish infestation is to minimise the dampness in your home. Check for leaks in the kitchen and bathroom and use a humidifier if appropriate.

Spiders comes in various sizes and colours and can live up to two years. Not all spiders are dangerous. Only about 2% are potentially dangerous, while the rest would prefer not to interact with humans and would only attack if threatened.
A spider bite can cause pain, swelling, itching and nausea. In extreme cases, spider bite can be fatal. So, seek immediate medical attention if you get bitten by a spider.
Rodents can be problematic for both residential and commercial building owners. They destroy property and can transmit diseases to humans. Because of this a rodent infestation should be addressed immediately to ensure they don’t compromise the safety of your health and property.
Rodent control can be difficult to achieve with just traps, poisons, electronic devices, etc. Only professional pest control technicians can ensure that these things need to be installed properly and effectively.
A termite colony consists of castes. One of these castes are the workers, the most destructive group. They are blind, sterile, wingless and responsible for gathering food, building the nest and mud tunnels, and feeding the other members of the colony.
Termites feed on cellulose, a material found in wood, paper, timber, etc. They are dangerous because they work mostly in areas that people don’t see. They can easily access a home from under the flooring, up the wall cavities, along plumbing pipes and even through the joints in the building concrete.
If you suspect termites are near or within your property, call a professional pest control service and book for an inspection and treatment plan.
Ants can be annoying especially when you see in crawling in large groups. One moment you see a couple of ants, the next thing you see is a horde of ants congregated on a small crumb or piece of food left on a kitchen table or floor.
They also bite, which can be painful and can cause swelling, itchiness and redness on the affected area. The best way to control ants is to keep your premises clean by and not leaving leftover food lying around and leaving used dishes in the kitchen sink.

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