Termite & Timber Pest Inspections

When considering the termite treatment cost, several factors need to be considered. It is hard to provide an exact figure, primarily because the size of your home, the severity of the infestation and the scope of remedies available will affect the overall price. What we can guarantee you, however, is that our technicians will provide high-quality services and be completely transparent with regard to your termite treatment cost.

Do Not Disturb

As subterranean termites are highly secretive, identifying insect activity around your home can be difficult. However, their secrecy is not always infallible. Key signs of an infestation and what to look out for include:

  • Mud tunnels and tubes on walls and foundations are key signs of the presence of unwanted guests. These tubes protect white ants from predators and maintain their conducive living conditions of high-humidity and darkness, enabling them to travel between the colony and their food source in comfort.
  • Weak, sagging and hollow-sounding timber are also clear signs of an infestation.
  • Mud-like earthen packing in wall cavities and where foundation walls meet flooring, bearers and joists offer a rehydration stop for termites from their food source back to the colony. Any signs of such packing mean it could be time for you to organise a termite pest control inspection for your home.
  • Cracks in timber and plaster are also indicative of their activity/presence.
  • Termites thrive in temperate, moisture-rich conditions. Leaking showers, piping and faulty guttering offer beneficial conditions for these unwanted insects.
  • Woodpiles, surrounding trees, garden beds and railway sleeper used for retaining walls etc. offer excellent conditions for colonies to thrive and should be approached with caution.
