1 in 4 Australian homes will be infested by termites (also known as white ants). Termites can cause up to $100,000 in damage per property. Get a fully licensed pest control specialist to conduct a termite inspection at least every 12 months – before you lose $100k.
Our inspection reports are thorough, reliable and compliant with Australian Standards AS 3660.2-2000. During the inspection, our experienced termite control technician investigates the following signs for termite or white ant activity:

It is estimated that 1 in 4 Australian homes will be attacked by Termites (AKA White Ants). It is essential to ensure your house has a Termite Management System to reduce the risk of Termite Damage.
Install a Physical Barrier
A physical termite barrier is installed during the construction of the house to highlight signs of termite activity. When termites track over the barrier, you can clearly see their mudding trail they leave behind if they are tracking into the house.
Where possible, we recommended checking the barrier at least monthly for signs of termite activity.
Chemically Treated Zone – Chemical Barrier
The installation of a chemically treated zone includes digging a trench, roughly 200mm wide, just past the top of the footing of the house slab and then treating with a termiticide. The soil is back-filled and treated. On footpaths or patios against the home edge, we drill holes, at 200mm intervals, through the concrete and inject the soil below with termiticide.
We can also provide a 5-Year $100,000 Insurance Policy.
Termite Bait/Poison and Monitoring System
A Termite Baiting and Monitoring System is a great alternative to if chemicals are unwanted or if it isn’t practical to install a Chemically Treated Zone due to the construction of your property. The termite baiting system we use is called Exterra.
If termites are feeding on parts of your property, we install stations containing REQUIEM Termite Bait. This may require inserting small screws into decorative surfaces such as door jambs and walls, and the creation of small access holes in a structural surface to enable termites to enter the station. These stations are removed once the colony has been eliminated.
Numerous independent scientific studies, and years of use, have shown that REQUIEM Termite Bait has a very low level of mammalian toxicity, even at very high levels of exposure, so it does not pose any risk to you, your family/pets or the environment. This is because the active ingredient in REQUIEM is a Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor, that works by inhibiting the termite body’s ability to synthesise the compound chitin, a key component of a termite’s exoskeleton (outer skeleton) – not ours. Bait stations are child and tamper-resistant.
Our Termite Inspection technicians use ‘The World’s Number 1 Termite Detector’ – The Termatrac T3i. This tool allows our Termite Inspectors to investigate further than the Australian Standards requirement (AS3660.2-2000). Our professional team also use a systematic approach to their termite inspections, making sure that every part of the Termite Inspection area is fully covered.
The unique termite detection radar does what no other detector has ever been able to do. It sends out radar through most common wall materials that locates and tracks the presence of termites, without the need for tapping or drilling holes in the walls for easy and accurate treatment.
The remote thermal sensor with built-in laser pointer shows changes in surface temperature; a common sign of termite infestation.
The moisture sensor confirms that conditions need further investigation. The moisture component enables the professional pest control technician to easily identify areas of excess moisture as a possible risk area for termites. The moisture sensor is so sensitive it can even pinpoint rising damp.
This camera assists us to find possible termite activity through different heat signatures. Again, this is above and beyond the Australian Standard. See below for some examples.
