Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

This charming bayside destination is a popular suburb. However, like other areas that are near the water, have plenty of bushland or parkland, and have a sub-tropical climate, it can attractive to different types of pests, some destructive and others just a nuisance.

Termite Control 

Wellington Point, being surrounded by water and parklands, is a high risk area for termite attacks. And though, Queensland’s moist, humid conditions are also preferred by termites. These destructive pests are said to be the ancestors of cockroaches.

Termites live on dead plant materials, including wood, leaf litter, soil and even animal dung. Once termites enter your home, the damage that they can cause can be significant in no time. This is because they eat 24/7. Termites don’t usually come out into the open, making it difficult to spot an infestation right away.

However, you can still look for signs of termite infestation around your property, the presence of termite droppings, wood the sounds hollow when tapped, presence of mud tubes on exterior walls, wooden beams and in crawl spaces, and presence of winged insects in and around your house.

Here are five areas where termite damage is commonly found: crawl spaces, subflooring, wooden fencing, basement window frames, and playhouses, swing sets, and picnic tables.

If you see signs of termites or termite infestation, no one if more knowledgeable and equipped to treat them that a licensed pest control technician.

Cockroach Control 

Cockroaches are never a welcome sight, be it in residential or commercial properties, because they are dirty. The pathogens they carry can cause food poisoning and diseases. They are usually found in bathrooms and kitchens because cockroaches love dark, damp places.

A sign of a serious cockroach infestation is when you see them around more than usual. The common cockroach species you may encounter in your property are:

  • German cockroach – thrives in warm and humid places that area close to food sources.
  • American cockroach – they bite and their bite can infect you with diseases
  • Oriental cockroach – is one of the biggest cockroaches in Australia. They are also called water bugs due to their preference for wet areas, and black beetle cockroaches because of their glossy, dark brown bodies.
  • Smoky brown cockroach – usually found in the attic.

Commercial insect sprays are available for cockroaches. But these treatments are temporary. For a successful, permanent treatment, call a qualified pest control company.

Ant Treatment 

Ants are very common in any type of property, including commercial properties such as restaurant and offices, and residential properties. Seeing a few ants seem harmless that you can even get rid of them using commercial insect sprays.

However, ants can cause serious harm to your health and property. You will usually spot ants on kitchen counters, floors, cupboards and other places where food is prepared and stored. If you don’t see them in these places, check the wooden structures of your home like the skirting boards. Some ant species like the Carpenter ants eat wood rather than food.

If you notice a large number of ants in your property, it’s time to call pest control experts for help.

Rodent Control 

These smart and agile pests are often seen with brown or grey fur. Their short breeding cycle makes them prolific breeders. Rodents are activity at night when the property is clear of the presence of humans. Once rodents gain access to your property and build nests, you will notice signs of their presence.

Rodents are good at finding food and water sources. Because of their tiny size, they can squeeze into cracks as small as a coin, which means given an opening these pests can easily enter your house.

As the temperature drops, rodents will begin their search for a shelter to keep warm. Seeing a rodent or two may seem not a big deal, but they can actually spread diseases to people. You and the people in your home are at risk of severe illnesses by rodents contaminating your food or you having contact with them.

If you hear noises coming from your roof or walls at night, when you see what look to be droppings, or bite marks on your belongings like furniture and clothing, these are sure signs of rodent infestation. For a successful rodent treatment, get help from licensed pest exterminators.

Spider Treatment 

There are more a thousand species of spiders all over Australia, including the most dangerous ones. Spiders can be problematic for various reasons. Some species bite, and this bite can be potentially lethal. Fear of spiders is real, and their presence can cause major distress for some people. Other species of spider spin webs, and the sight of these give the impression of a dirty and unhygienic home.

You can probably deal with a spider by yourself. However, the presence of numerous spiders in your home, requires the expertise of qualified pest control technicians.

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Redlands area, where Wellington Point is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

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 Wellington Point.

  • 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.
