Termite Control

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.

Termite Inspections

 

We use thermal imaging and radar detection technology for our termite inspections.

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:

  • Grounds
  • Wall exterior
  • Wall interior
  • Roof void
  • Subfloor
  • Trees
  • Stumps
  • Fences
  • Garage
  • Carport
  • Retaining walls
  • Landscaping timbers

Termite inspection report include:

  • All the areas inspected
  • Areas of concern
  • Past or present termite infestation
  • Termite evidence and termite treatment recommendations

Receive digital termite inspection reports on the same day of inspection.

At Gold Coast Pest Control, we’ve invested a lot of resources into ensuring you receive the clearest and most reliable termite inspection available.

Termite Protection

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.

Termite Protection Options:


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.

  1. The Exterra Termite Baiting and Monitoring System to intercepts foraging termites and concentrates their feeding to the bait stations. In-ground stations contain non-toxic timber interceptors are embedded in the soil around the perimeter of the property. The stations contain “Focus,” a termite attractant designed to decrease the amount of time needed for initial termite interception (presence of termites in the Stations). The Stations are inspected on a regular basis for the presence of foraging termites.
  2. After interception has occurred in a station, we add REQUIEM Termite Bait. The active ingredient in REQUIEM is a Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor that stops the termite’s ability to moult. If they do not moult they die, resulting in the total elimination of the colony.
  3. When a colony has been eliminated, any remaining unconsumed REQUIEM Termite Bait is removed. Fresh timber interceptors are placed in the stations to intercept new termite colonies. Stations are monitored on a regular basis to protect against new termite colonies attacking your property.

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 Detection Technology

Termite detector scanning for termites

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.

Termite Radar technology at work

Termite Detection Radar

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.

Thermal Termite Detector

Thermal Sensor

The remote thermal sensor with built-in laser pointer shows changes in surface temperature; a common sign of termite infestation.

Moisture Termite Detector

Moisture Sensor

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.

Thermal Imaging Camera

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.

I called GC Pest Control when I saw a rat in my garage, they answered on a Sunday and booked me in for the next day. They were extremely thorough and affordable. I am pleased to say I haven't seen or heard of any rats since! Thanks GC Pest Control, I'll be recommending you to my friends.
