Don’t Ignore The Early Signs Of Termite Infestation

Termites do not harm humans. Therefore, people tend to ignore these pests when they see the infestation initially. It can be disastrous as termites can spread throughout the property and cause widespread damage.

The residential properties and commercial spaces in the Gold Coast generally report two pest termite species: subterranean termites and dry wood termites. The damage caused by these termite species will help you understand the importance of timely pest control.

  • Subterranean termites make widespread destruction at properties, including structural damage, with significant financial impacts.
  • Dry wood termites generally attack undecayed wood, including furniture, wooden siding, and various hardwood structure.
  • Termites also feed paper, documents, filtration systems, swimming pool liners, insulation, and more.
  • The damage due to these pests can be irreversible if you have furniture or wooden structure with great heritage value.
  • The damaged wooden structures due to termite attack can give access for other pest species to properties and make the healthy condition of the environment worse.
  • With dry mud, earthy materials, and visible termites, properties look unclean that demand more frequency sanitation requirements. Further, people do not feel welcomed to properties with termite infestation issues.
Importantly, pest termites can multiply quickly – sometimes hidden from your eyes. Therefore, as soon as you see signs of termite infestation, you should get professional termite protection and control in the Gold Coast.

Signs Of Termite Infestation

You may not see visible termites at your property to confirm the infestation at your property. The following termite signs can help you conclude the termite attack in your space:
  • Mud shelter tubes of termites in or around – including the foundation – your property
  • Cracked plaster and paint around wooden structures of the property
  • Sagging wooden floors, windows, and doors
  • Dry mud in the window architraves and door joints
  • Rotten doors, architraves, and windows
  • Earthy, muddy materials around power plugs and sockets; occasional power failure without any obvious reasons
We advise you to contact us for a quick termite and white ant control service once you confirm the termite infestation at your property.

Comprehensive Termite Control In Four Steps

At Tom’s Pest Control, we provide a comprehensive service that helps you make your property best protected from future termite infestation while addressing the existing issues. We have four-stage pest control to safeguard your property from termites.

Termite Inspection

Our certified termite technicians will come to your property and inspect every inch of it for termite infestation and associated damage.

With advanced inspection tools and access equipment, we will identify and document the termite species, the extent of property damage due to infestation, the factors that led to the infestation, and more.

We will prepare the inspection report with our findings, the photographs of the infestation, details of the damage, and treatment recommendations and provide you with the same.

Treatment Plan

Based on the inspection results, our pest technicians will create a tailored termite control and white ant treatment plan to address the pest issues at your property.

It will have details of treatment procedures, the timeline of the procedures, the outcome of the treatments, and any specific instructions to the inhabitants.

If your property has complex termite issues, we may complete a follow-up treatment to make it free of the pest. In such cases, we will include the details of the additional procedure in the treatment plan.

The Termite Extermination

Our termite control technicians will complete the pest extermination as described in the treatment plan. Based on the extent of termite infestation, we may use a mix of treatments, including termiticides, termite baits, repellents, surface sprays, termite shields, termite foams, and more, to get the best results.

No matter the treatment options, we use only safe, family-friendly products and procedures that are approved per Australian standards. We create a healthy environment at properties through our treatments.

Ongoing Control

In many cases, termite extermination alone can’t guarantee you long-term results. We will provide you with specific techniques, property repairs, habitat modification recommendations, and more to make a termite barrier around your property.

In general, the following tips and steps can help you minimise the termite infestation:

  • Clear any form of clutter in your property that can hide the termite signs from your eyes.
  • Do you have leaking pipes, discharge from air conditioners, hot water overflow, or any other issue that increases the humidity level of your property? Repair them as humidity can attract termites to your property.
  • Remove timber and woodpiles from your property and surroundings as they can bring in termites.
  • Make regular inspections at your property to identify early signs of termite infestation.

FAQs

How do I permanently get rid of termites in my house?

In reality, there is no way you can make your property permanently protected from termites as the pest is an integral part of our ecosystem. Instead, you can greatly reduce the risks of infestation and associated damage through a number of initiatives and control plans. You can regularly inspect your property for termite infestation signs – especially in areas where wooden parts of your property touch soil. If you see signs of termite infestation, call a professional termite inspector to examine your property and surroundings. You can get soil and wood treatments completed if your locality frequently reports termite infestation issues.

Should you cover termite holes?

Based on the size of termite holes, we use different methods to cover them and reinforce your wood. If the termite holes are small or insignificant, we generally apply a wood hardener to manage the situation. Before adding the hardener, we remove any excess wood dust or debris from the holes to ensure proper hardening. If the wood has large holes, we consider the use of wood fillers – putty-like material. Normally come in squeeze bottles or tubs, wood fillers are easy to apply on wood holes with minimal efforts. We use advanced tools to inject maximum fillers to the hole or damaged wood and allow it to harden.

What is the most effective termite treatment?/ What is the best termite treatment?

Today, several options are available to eliminate termites from property environments. However, some treatments can give you long-lasting results and make your property better protected against future infestation. We offer a mix of soil and wood treatments to eliminate the termites from properties and give long-lasting results. As part of soil treatment, we will dig a trench around your property foundation, mix the soil with termiticide, and fill the trench with the soil to create a termite barrier around your property. Similarly, we will complete borate treatment on wood to eliminate the current termite infestation and prevent future risks. If drywood termites infest your property, we will also try fumigation to kill the termites.

What is the fastest way to get rid of termites naturally?

There are a number of ways you can eliminate termites from your space. However, we would recommend the use of boric acid to remove termites from your space quickly. Available in powder form, boric acid can directly be applied to the infested areas to get immediate results. You can also mix boric acid in water and spray it in termite-infested areas. Importantly, boric acid kills the termites and prevent future infestation risks. When applying boric acid, wear masks and goggles and ensure that children are not around to ensure a safe extermination experience.

Is termite damage covered by insurance?

Home insurances in Australia do not generally cover damage due to insects, termites, and various types of vermin. These are classified under damage caused by animals or insects and excluded from the coverage. It is because insurance companies consider termite damages as something that can be prevented – not any accidental damage. Regardless of these, some insurance policies give limited coverage for termite-related damage. You can check the inclusions and exclusions of your insurance to confirm this. If you have more questions, contact your insurance provider to get accurate information.

How quickly does termite treatment work?

The termite control completed by Tom’s Pest Control start giving results immediately, and you would see dead termites in the infested areas in a day. However, if your property has extensive termite issues, it might take a few days for the treatment to fully work and exterminate the last termite at your property.
When there are large colonies of termites, it may take a few days for the treatment to reach the queen and kill the colony completely. If we notice extreme infestation with multiple termite colonies at properties, we generally recommend an entire property treatment to get the best results.

How often should you treat your house for termites?

Most professional termite treatments give results for a few years. We will identify the factors that led to the termite invasion and the complexity of infestation to create a custom termite control plan during our inspection. With preventive treatment procedures completed, our termite extermination usually lasts five years. At the time of the treatment, our pest technicians will confirm the period to which your property is protected against reinfestation. However, you should get an annual pest inspection at your property if your space has a history of termite infestation.

Should you not buy a house with termites?

You have to consider a number of factors while planning to buy a termite-infested property. Properties with significant termite issues are usually listed with heavily discounted prices. Sometimes, this can be a great deal. Even if you don’t see a price drop, termite issues can help you negotiate with the seller for a better price. However, you should ensure that you can eradicate the infestation and fix the associated damage after buying. You should also consider the expenses to fixing the issues during the negotiation stage to ensure that everything falls within your budget.

What is the best time of year to treat for termites?

You must get professional termite inspection and control as soon as you notice the signs of infestation to minimise the associated damage. When considering the best time for termite treatment, August to December is the period you can consider to get the best results. During these months, temperate and humidity in the Gold Coast and Australia start to rise. Therefore, termites become active after the dormant winter period and start to get out of the colonies. Treatment during this stage can help you kill termites quickly and completely.

How much does termite treatment cost?

The cost of termite treatment in Gold Coast usually costs $350to $3500, depending on the type of treatment you avail. varies from properties to properties based on a number of factors. The type of your property, the extent of the infestation, the termite species, and the risks of reinfestation decide the cost of the treatment. If the termite issue is limited to a particular area and not widespread, the treatment usually costs $350-$800. On the other hand, if your property has an extensive termite issue, the cost of the service sharply escalates. And you might want to pay anywhere between $1500-$5000, and the service includes creating a termite barrier around your property with wood and soil treatments. Importantly, the treatment makes your property termite resistant for at least five years.

How long does termite treatment last?

The type of termite extermination procedure you get for your property decides the durability of the results. Most termite treatments safeguard your property for a couple of years from reinfestation. If your property has extensive termite infestation issues, we may complete comprehensive termite control. This includes wood and soil treatments to create a termite barrier around your property. In such cases, you will get results at least for five years. However, we recommend all our customers get an annual termite inspection for their property to identify any early infestation signs.

How does termite treatment work?

At Tom’s Pest Control, our termite treatment procedures usually take a day or a few days – based on the number of termite colonies and size – to kill the termites in a property. The take from this is that you can’t get the complete elimination in a split second. Our pest control methods work like slow poison and kill all the termites that are deep inside the colonies. It is important to note that the queen of each termite colony lives inside the colony. Directly killing termites doesn’t kill the queen. Our procedure of using slow working termiticides ensures that it reaches the queen and kills the entire colony.
