The most important thing to remember is not to disturb them by poking and prodding. Quickly get a termite treatment by a qualified and insured pest controller.
As termites eat timber from inside out, by the time you have noticed the termite damage it could be quite extensive. We recommend all clients be proactive and get an annual termite inspection, Brisbane, it’s much much cheaper than the cost of repairing termite damage.
The best practice when termites are found is to keep the area dark and keep foot traffic to a minimum. Resist the urge to spray them with surface spray. You’ll do more harm than good. You want the termites to think they haven’t been discovered. That way a qualified pest controller can get in and do a thorough white ant treatment. If you disturb them, the termites will go to the ground or even worse go to another part of your home.

How much Damage can Termites do?
Termites are all over Brisbane and the Gold Coast. There is no better or worse area. 1 in 3 homes will have had some sort of termite activity over the next 5 years. If conditions are favorable termites will not stay in a single area. They will follow easy to digest soft timber ensuring there is more than enough food to keep the colony strong. Termites are always foraging around looking for new food sources. Termites need to feed their ever-growing colony.
An aggressive specie in a well-developed colony can eat near 500grams of soft damp timber a day! What’s even scarier is people won’t get a Termite Inspection done until they see signs of termite damage. That could be years of damage in the making. When we go to a customer’s home the first thing we do is conduct a thorough Termite Inspection. This will then give us a good indication of the conducive environment that leads them to the house and perhaps even to be able to identify the species. From this information, we can best decide on the application method of the termiticide.
Termite Barrier Treatment Chemical, White Ant Treatment Brisbane
The Treatment Chemicals (Termiticide) have advanced significantly in the last few years and that is why it’s important that your pest controller uses the latest chemicals and modern application techniques. We use the market-leading Termiticide called Termidor which has a unique transfer effect on termites.
How To Treat Termites
Termites are social insects, they communicate through touch, feed each other, and even groom one another. Termidor is perfect for this behavior due to the chemicals transfer effect.
Termidor does not kill the termites straight away. But gives the termites time to reach the colony before showing signs of being infected. By then it would have come into contact with 100’s if not 1000’s of termites. All going about their business while passing the chemical deeper into the nest.
Within days the chemical is widespread and having a devastating effect on the colony. The success of this application comes down to how many termites come in contact with the chemical. So to ensure a great treatment they must remain undisturbed until treated.
You apply Termidor by these methods;
- Foaming and/or
It will be up to your trained Brisbane termite technician to decide on the best treatment method.
When treating termites inside your home we always used two treatment approaches. The first initial treatment is carried out then approximately 2 weeks later we will come back and reinspect the area. Then usually stage two of your treatment is to install a termite Barrier. Termites leave a pheromone trail which allows other termites to use the same entry points into your home. So installing a barrier will stop this from happening.
Termite Protection For Your Home
Once you have had termites in your home it is impossible to know if they have been destroyed or have simply moved to another area. Termite Treatments are a localized treatment and only covers the area where the termites were. To better protect your home, we strongly recommend that a Termite Management System (Termite Barrier) be installed. There are several on the market so we offer a free onsite quote to see which would suit your dwelling.
This is really where experience matters. Knowing the breeding and feeding characteristics of the different Termite Species means a more targeted approach. Some species are happy to create a sub-nest in your home where others will only feed on your house and return to a local nest. One of the best things about using Termidor for our Brisbane Termite Treatments is that is undetectable by termites. The termites will pass right on through it without knowing they are affected. This is perfect when the termite specie is external to the property.
White ant Treatment To Tree Stumps
Leaving tree stumps in the ground to rot away is a big no-no. Our Termite Treatment Brisbane Techs will tell you it is our most common call out. Treating active termites in a tree stump. What you are doing is providing termites the perfect environment to build a nest or a subnet. Warm, ample in moisture and hidden away from predators it won’t be too long before the colony builds a super nest. From here they will make mud tunnels underground searching for food i.e. your home.
The best practice is to remove the stump and it’s crown before termites find it. However, if they are present the same rules apply. Don’t disturb them and don’t pour diesel or sump oil over the stump. It will do nothing. For tree stump treatments we drill and inject termiticide into the stump. Then we drench the local area around the stump.
