To keep a home free from everyday pests such as spiders, cockroaches and ants, we recommend having a general pest treatment once a year. This is the preferred option for many of our customers, who find that having their home sprayed is effective and gives them great peace of mind.

Every home should be inspected for termites at least once a year. Having a professional termite inspection at the same time as an annual general pest treatment is a convenient and cost-effective way to keep a home safe and protected.

Key Pests in Thorneside

The 3 key pests in Thorneside are:

  1. Termites
  2. Ants 
  3. Mosquitoes

Termites thrive in warm, humid conditions, and are active all year round, which make them the number one pest of concern.

Ants typically make an appearance during the hotter months of the year, and are usually found in kitchens or trailing across gardens. Ant populations can quickly get out of control so it’s best to get on top of the problem early. We have a range of specialist ant treatments that not only deal with the issue but offer ongoing protection too. 

Thorneside residents who live close to Tingalpa Creek along the western border may find mosquitoes are a problem during the summer. If mozzies make outdoor areas unusable then a specialist mosquito treatment can help keep them at bay for up to 3 months.

During the cooler months, rodents can also become a problem. Pests are always present, not just during the summer! 

Termite Inspections and Termite Treatments - Thorneside

The warm temperatures together with the presence of Tingalpa Creek and lots of green spaces make Thorneside a hotspot for termites, who thrive in moist, warm conditions where there is plenty of wood around. They will happily consume fallen trees, power poles and structural timbers, which means significant damage should they gain access to a home (often via the subfloor).

Taking steps to prevent termite entry is essential for any homeowner, with an annual termite inspection is regarded as the minimum precaution that should be taken. If a home is at particularly high risk, the recommendation is to look at a termite treatment, where a termite management system is installed at the home. This might involve adding a termiticide to the soil around the perimeter or using a baiting system.

Thorneside - Interesting Facts, Weather and Pest Control Recommendations

Sitting between Wellington Point and Tingalpa Creek on Waterloo Bay, Thorneside is the smallest mainland suburb of Redlands Coast. It has managed to retain its old-world charm, with parks and reserves offering pleasant walking options and William Taylor Memorial Sportsfield acting as a hub for local sporting events and meets. Native fauna, including koalas, reside in the larger areas of bushland.

The Quandamooka people are recognised as the traditional owners of the Redlands Coast area. Settlement by Europeans began in the 1850s and by 1882 William Thorne from Devonshire, UK, owned a significant portion of land. The local railway station was known as Thorne’s siding, which later gave rise to the name Thorneside.
