Termites | Pest Control Specialists
Gold Coast & Brisbane’s Leading Pest Control Services
Termites are the cause of the greatest economic loss of timber in Australia and are a significant factor in the degradation of trees growing in our forested areas.
Termites are primitive insects belonging to the order Isoptera. They live in colonies that have a social organisation similar to that of ants.
As termites are a part of our geographical location in South East Queensland, being vigilant and understanding the signs, the potential damage and how to identify these species of insects are a must for homeowners.
Inspections of the timber structures that we work, live in and call our homes is the best way to identify the risk of any house or workplace susceptible to the attack by and of termite activity. If termites are found, treatments and putting termite management systems in place are a part of any pest control company such as ours and can be carried out by our fully qualified pest technician.
