Termite Treatment Sunshine Coast

Leaders in the Prevention & Treatment of Termites / White Ants

These wood-eaters may be tiny and squishy, but they can do thousands of dollars in damage to your home’s timber structures in a matter of months. Their pale, soft bodies need moisture to survive, which is why pest control companies look for evidence in the moist areas of your home.

Suncoast Pest Solutions are leaders in the prevention and treatment of termites and white ants throughout the Sunshine Coast, Bribie Island and Northern Brisbane areas.

Fortunately, our region has a great climate. This climate of warm weather and high rainfall are also great conditions for termite activity. Termites infest and cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home which is often your greatest asset. Insurance policies will not cover damage caused by Termites.

Termites can infest your home at anytime, that is why it is important to have an annual inspection.

If you think you have active Termites or White Ants as they are commonly referred to, we recommend you do not disturb them. This is important for a couple of reasons. If you disturb them, they may abandon those workings and head to another part of your home which could cause more damage than necessary. Undisturbed Termites are also easier for us to assess and determine the appropriate method of removal, elimination and control for your home.

Termite Facts

There are approximately 300 different species of white ants with a handful being of relevance and threat to our homes and buildings.

Since they can lay up to 2,000 eggs a day, time is of the essence when it comes to termite pest control.

REMOVE SOURCES OF MOISTURE AROUND THE HOME

The subterranean termite is the biggest threat to your home. They require moisture to thrive and survive. By eliminating moisture around your home, this will help you avoid termites taking up residence in your home. Be sure to minimise overflows from hot water units, rainwater tanks and air-conditioning units. Ensure water has a natural flow away from the house. Clean gutters and repair broken downpipes.

CLEAN UP AROUND THE HOUSE

There are many things you can do to minimise food sources for termites. Remove stored timber from under the home. Remove firewood or stacked timber supplies away from the house and store in well ventilated areas. Clean up any old damp tree logs and rotting fences.

VENTILATE SUBFLOORS AND ROOF SPACES

Ensure there is adequate air flow to subfloors and roof spaces. Avoid blocking ventilation grills. Clean up and remove any potential debris that termites can use as a feeding ground or a source to retain unnecessary moisture. Ensure weepholes are left open and are not accidentally blocked during the construction phase or later obstructed with garden beds or debris.

HOME CONSTRUCTION DESIGN

For homes on a concealed slab edge, termites can gain access into your home via poorly sealed pipe penetrations, cracks in the slab or the brick/cladding interface. For homes where timber is in direct contact with the ground, termites will be able to directly access the internal structures of the home. By being aware of termite entry points, homeowners can be proactive to eradicate invasion entry points.

Suncoast Pest Solutions use chemical or physical barriers and baits to rid your home of these nasty creatures, depending on your home’s location and construction. Once we’re done, we check regularly to make sure they never return. You can trust Suncoast Pest Solutions will talk you through all of your options.
