Termite Control

Termite Control & Management

Termites are one of Australia’s most destructive and evasive pests, proven to be a nationwide, year-round issue for both home and business communities.

Safeguarding your property’s foundational structure is critical!

Redlands Pest Control specialise in providing termite extermination and management services to residential and commercial customers across a number of Brisbane localities.

Protecting your home against extensive, irreparable termite damage could be as simple as arranging a termite inspection, along with a recommended eradication process.

About termites – What you should know

Most commonly found outside metropolitan areas, the subterranean termite (white ant), is the most devastative to internal timber structures and fittings.

Insurance companies generally won’t insure home or business owners against white ant damage, making precautionary control systems the most effective treatment option.

How do termites end up in my property?

Termites seek moisture and a variety of food sources when establishing colonies, with homes and commercial buildings unfortunately providing both.

Trusses, fittings and other supportive timber materials offer ideal breeding and living environments for white ants.

These timber-based constructions combined with constant moisture caused by drains, pipes or other negligently maintained plumbing invites termites to nest and feed on your building.

How do I spot termite presence?

Most termite species are generally a combination of white, brown or black shades with a somewhat translucent appearance. White ants are rarely seen until damage is noticed, however by this time, significant underlying havoc has usually been done.

You may have a termite infestation if you discover:

  • New or unusual trails of dried soil around windows or doors
  • Visible signs on moisture on interior walls
  • Slight ‘scratching’ noises behind plasterboard
  • Floorboards have become ‘spongey’ or present a weakened feel.

Contact the Redlands Pest Control team if you believe termites are present in your home to arrange an inspection.

Termite inspections

Disregarding annual termite inspections leaves Australian homes and businesses vulnerable to damaging termite attacks.

A professional examination by a licensed expert could mean the difference between requiring cost-effective preventative termite management and needing a full foundational reconstruction.

Termite systems

Redlands Pest Control are full accredited by the Queensland Building Services Authority to provide advanced pre-construction termite control systems. Buildings situated amongst ‘high-risk’ areas are particularly susceptible to attacks.

We install preventative termite systems to both new and renovated buildings reinforcing your home or business’s foundations against excessive damage.

Adding a termite barrier during your home’s construction phases significantly reduces the risk of an infestation and monumental future repair bill.

Termite types

Termites are a tunnelling pest, weakening a building’s structural integrity essentially as a means to source food. Like most pest species, subterranean termites work together gradually disintegrating timber structures and compromising their safety in the process.

Many white ant species exist in Australia, however only a few are of concern and known to cause damage around Australia. Termites commonly found among Queensland communities include:

Coptotermes Acinaciformis

Nationwide existence often building underground nests close to eucalyptus trees. Commonly found in backyard patio/decking constructions.

Coptotermes Lacteus

Particularly present in South East QLD around forest-dense environments.

Coptotermes Raffrayi

Most prevalent among North QLD communities, these build nests inside dry and living tree stumps predominantly among coastal and remote areas.

Microcerotermes Sp

Build brittle nests in the form of a mound. Most commonly discovered around logs and dried-out fencing structures.

Nasutitermes Exitiosus

Mound nest species building colonies both above and below ground.

Schedorhinotermes Intermedius

Regularly found where timber-soil contact is present.
