Termite Control Solutions Brisbane

According to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) approximately 32 percent of all houses in Australia currently have some termite activity, or about 130,000 homes per year. In other words, about one in three homes are affected by termites at the moment. This makes termite pest detection and eradication a priority for all homeowners.

Termites may build their colonies as far as 100 metres away from your structure and enter through any gaps at ground level, such as cracks in mortar joints, but more often they enter from below and are undetected until the damage is already done.

Termite Treatment Options Brisbane

This is why annual high-tech inspections by expertly trained Control Pest Management specialists will give you protection from expensive building rectification. We are equipped with the latest in termite detection tools and bring the years of experience that make us the best in the business.

Termite management strategies consist of either creating a chemical barrier between the termites and the building to be protected or eradicating the termite colony by baiting.

The choice between baiting and interception or chemical treatment can be difficult. In buildings with many expansion joins in a concrete floor, floors with split levels and other more intricate construction methods baiting quickly becomes the most logical choice. For buildings with a simple construction method it will generally be more cost effective to apply a chemical treatment while a baiting and interception system provides a better long term protection.

We will assess the construction dynamics including expansion joints, multiple levels and the connections between different building materials to determine what is optimal in your specific situation so you can be best advised.


How much does termite control cost?

The cost of treatment depends on:

  • Type of termites found
  • Moisture levels
  • Where the termites are – topography and they may be in different locations
  • Baits and chemicals used
  • Type of treatments use

Termites are sensitive to smell and therefore if you spray only the surface, they may retract and move to another area in your house. The average house can cost $3500 for a full treatment.

It’s critical that your chosen pest technician eliminates the colony rather than a surface treatment. The queen will lay more than a thousand eggs a day in a normal environment. If not treated carefully, termites will eat non-stop and their estimated economic damage in Australia alone is more than 100 million dollars.

How much does a termite barrier cost?

A termite barrier is a chemically treated zone that surrounds the perimeter of a building or structure. This treated zone is positioned strategically to disrupt the termite’s pathway beneath the ground.

A termite treatment barrier will vary between $1,500 to $3,500 for a small to large home. Most pest control companies will have a payment plan available for you.
