Potential Risk of Pest Infestation on the Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast is a per-urban area, located 100 km north of the Brisbane CBD in South East Queensland, on the Coral Sea coastline. Its urban area stretches roughly 60 km of coastline and hinterland from Pelican Waters and Tewantin.

It’s not called the Sunshine Coast for no reason. It has a sunny subtropical climate that is perfect for year-round outdoor activities. Temperatures during summer average 28 degC (82F) and winter at a mild 20 degC (68F). It has been said that when it’s raining in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast may still be enjoying sunny weather. There is no dry season and precipitation is normally high.

Australia is known for its diverse, unique and fascinating wildlife, but when it comes to pests they are as common as they come. Most of the concerns received by pest control professionals are common critters like ants, termites and rodents.

Ant Control 

The species of ants that invade Sunshine Coast properties are Black House Ant, White Footed House Ant, Ghost Ant, Carpenter Ant and Pharaoh Ant. All these species will build nests inside your home. Funnel Ant and Coastal Brown Ants will build nests outside.

Ants are not considered dangerous but their bite can sting pretty bad and become a nuisance in homes and workplaces. You are most likely to see ants’ nest in walls, foundations, potted plants, and more. Ants come inside buildings in search of wood, so making sure to keep your food properly stored is one of many ways to avoid ant infestation.

Termite Attack 

The Sunshine Coast is a high-risk area for termites because of its warm, humid climate. Most homes in the region at high risk of termite infestation, particularly if your property is close to eucalypt gum trees – within a 100-metre radius of the structure.

At least one in four homes in the area will experience a termite attack at some point. It is important to have an annual termite inspection and know the signs of termites to avoid infestation.

And recent studies indicate that roughly one-third of all unprotected homes and commercial properties are attacked by subterranean termites. Once termites enter your property, they can destroy the wall and roofing timbers in less than three months.

Cockroach Control 

Queenslanders are no strangers to cockroaches, but it seems we are seeing more of them today because of climate change. The higher than average spring temperatures, combined with humid conditions forecast for the summer, have made conditions perfect for the cockroach population to blow up. You may notice more cockroaches in your home, thanks to the recent drought and destructive bushfires have forced these dirty pests to move inside homes where they can take shelter, and find food and water.

Aside from being gross and smelly, cockroaches also carry different kinds of diseases. You don’t want roaches in your home as they are known to eat, love and move through sewers, rubbish, and other germ-filled areas. You can use sprays, baits and traps to control cockroaches but more serious infestations need the expertise of professionals.

Spider Infestation 

Pest population, in general, and certainly spiders, increase in warmer weather, and particularly in the warm humid conditions in South East Queensland. Some of the spiders in the region are Redback spiders, Huntsman spiders, Daddy Long Legs and Golden Orb.

There are many species of spiders to be found in Australia. Some of them are very poisonous but there is anti-venom available to prevent death. Different species behave differently and inhabit different environments around your home. Some spiders spin web, others don’t. You may see some chilling in the corner of a room, other crawling around the floor or walls. And there are species that you can find in your garden.

While spider bites might be considered non-fatal now, they can still be painful. Homes and places of business look dirty and messy when there are spider webs. But you can keep spider at bay with regular treatments.

Rodent Control

Large brown sewer rats and small grey and black climbing roof rats are common in the Sunshine Coast. Sewer rats scuttle around beneath buildings and on farms, while climbing rats tend to nest in your home.

No matter how cute they look, rodents, out of all pests, are the most notorious when it comes to spreading diseases. Rats and mice can spread disease both directly (bites, scratches, contact with feces/urine) and indirectly (thru a vector like fleas and tick). Aside from being vectors of diseases, rodents are also known to start fires by chewing through electrical wiring, insulation, and wood. To prevent and control rodents, trapping and sanitation techniques are key.
