Do I Need Termite Inspections and Termite Control If I Live in Brisbane?

 

We are commonly asked, do I need termite inspections and termite control if I live in Brisbane? Termites are located throughout the whole of Queensland, the further north you go the more termite activity you will find. CSIRO recommend for you to arrange regular inspections – at least once a year in cooler areas and twice a year in warmer areas. An inspection during periods of high termite activity which is early spring to late summer is generally the best time for termite inspection.

You can discourage termite activity from your home by doing a couple of simple measures. Termites are attracted to wood, their food source so keeping stacked timbers, logs, firewood or sleepers away from your external walls will help with termites gaining undetected entry. If termites are detected while an inspection is in progress, the licensed pest controller, Termite Control Brisbane will discuss the best method of treatment for the situation located. The licensed pest inspector will also talk to you in regards to placing a barrier under or around your house to prevent further attacks. You will be asked not to touch the area of infestation until the termites are inactive. Disturbing this area will cause the termites to shut of those leads and start working at another area of the home. You may also be advised

 

that you might need to install a termite barrier around your home to prevent another attack or to reduce pressure from your home to help prevent another attack.

Domestic Pest Control Brisbane should also be carried out every 6 months. General pest treatments usually cover you for cockroaches, spiders and silverfish. Other pest treatments can be done if asked for eg: ants, rodents, wasps, fleas, fly’s, bed bugs, etc.
