Termite damage bills are not proportionate to pest size
Despite their small size, termites cause the most damage in Aussie homes than any other type of pest. Termites are responsible for more damage to Australian homes than floods, fires, and storms combined. It is estimated that currently, 1 in 5 homes in Australia is infested with termites, and 1 in 3 Aussie homes will be infested by termites at some stage. For something that affects so many Aussie homes and causes such damage, termite infestations are not covered by home insurance policies. This means most homeowners are out of pocket for thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Termite prevention is the best defence
The best defence a homeowner has is annual pest inspections and regular preventative treatments. Termite pest control inspections can catch an infestation before too much damage is done. Did you know that termites never sleep! They are active 24/7 and can cause extensive structural damage to your home.
If you see termites, DO NOT disturb them. If the colony feels threatened, they will take flight and move to another location. Call Brisbane City Pest Control immediately. We will attend termite calls swiftly in order to prevent any further damage.
Early detection and termite inspections
Termites strike fear into the hearts of homeowners around the world. The destruction these tiny wood-devouring insects can cause to your home is unparalleled. They chomp through timber structures and have even caused many homes to collapse.
Annual termite and timber pest inspections should be a priority as a homeowner. These regular inspections will catch termite activity early before too much damage is done, thus saving you lots of money in repairs. Some areas of Brisbane are at higher risk for termites; if you live in one of those areas, our technicians may advise more frequent inspections or preventative treatments.

- Inspect timber fences, decks, pergolas, and outbuildings

- If there is any evidence of termites or no existing termite management plan, we will discuss treatment and home protection options
Dealing with a termite infestation
If you have a termite problem, you need the help of a professional. DIY solutions are ineffective, and you can run up a large bill before realising that they are not working. Worse still, disturbing the termite colony could result in them moving to another area of your home, causing more extensive damage. The Brisbane City Pest Control team are accredited timber pest experts who carry out all inspections and treatments in accordance with Australian Standards. Our first step will be a thorough analysis of your home, locating any existing colonies and prescribing a treatment package which may comprise of:
- Termite dusting
- Chemical soil treatment
- Baiting systems
Once activated, our termite treatments are active for several years to reduce the chance of reinfestations.
