Key Pests in Thornlands

The main pests affecting homeowners in Thornlands are

  1. Termites
  2. Ants
  3. Mosquitoes & biting midges

The year round warm temperatures and moisture are just the conditions termites love. But to be honest most pests love these conditions too!

There is a wide range of pest ants that cause problems both inside and outside the home. Black ants are often a problem indoors whereas outside coastal brown ants often make a mess of pavers. Green-head ants (bites) and funnel ants (soil funnels) both cause issues in lawns. A specialist ant treatment from AllPro Pest Control will provide lasting protection.

Mosquitoes and biting midges love the mangroves and saltwater estuaries. As saltwater mosquitoes can fly several kilometers inland, most homes in Thornlands have the potential to suffer a mosquito problem.

Termite Inspections and Termite Treatments - Thornlands

With the termites active all year round, and a plentiful supply of new termites queens from the surrounding bush looking for new places to build a nest, homeowners in Thornlands need to be alert to the termite threat.

Annual termite inspections are a must and it is highly recommended that homeowners should have a termite management system installed around their property to protect their home from termite attack.

Thornlands - Interesting facts, weather and pest control recommendations

Thornlands was originally part of Cleveland, and was leased to Joseph Clarke. He relinquished the lease in 1858 and the area became a farming area (mainly citrus and tropical fruit). The areas is now predominantly residential suburb. Although there are some rural blocks it is primarily suburban residential area, with lots of new housing on the way!

Thornlands has a typical sub-tropical climate with wet summers and warm winters, which provides pests with ideal breeding conditions. With the substantial bush areas, termites are a particular problem and being close to the coastal areas, saltwater mosquitoes are constantly annoying homeowners!

Homeowners and business owners in Thornlands need regular pest treatments to keep pest numbers down. But for home owners annual termite inspections and termite management systems are critical to prevent termite attacks.
