Who are they for, and why is it important?

Termites are everywhere across Australia, including Cairns. Needless to say, a termite inspection is for everyone. According to the CSIRO, 1 in 3 Australian homes will get white ants. In other words, even if you don’t have these troublesome pest at the moment, one of your neighbours does. And it will only be a matter of time before millions of little termite workers make their way into your property.

The home insurance scheme does not cover termite-related damages. As a result, homeowners will personally bear the brunt of a termite attack. Studies show that these insects cost homeowners an average of $10,000. Still think you don’t need an inspection?

The Australian climate supports a rich ecosystem. Humans love it, and so do pests. Because of this, the government mandates an annual termite inspection for existing homeowners. Before you buy a new property, you must perform an inspection to confirm the structural integrity of the home.

We provide inspection and control to help homeowners and businesses eradicate termites. Our dedicated team of experts are friendly, prompt, licensed, and highly experienced.

We use the latest treatment services technology and pest management techniques to ensure you receive the best and most comprehensive inspection service available. Our service is also backed by public liability insurance and BASF’s $2 million assurance warranty on any Termidor application.

Areas we inspect

Our termite inspectors will thoroughly inspect the inside and outside of your property to ensure a time-free structure. We will check all accessible areas, risk factors, and up to 50 metres away from your house. Our team pays careful attention to dark and hidden places like inside the walls where they can thrive without restraint.

  • External

Backyard landscaping, under the house, dead trees and stump, garden beds, soil areas, beams and trusses, roofing battens, down piping, vents and skylights, and guttering.

  • Internal

Floorboards, architraves, door jambs, skylights, ventilation, timber cabinets, roof voids, inside walls, floors and ceilings.

Tools we use

  • Moisture metres: detect moisture within the timber in your property.
  • Thermal imaging: this is an industry-leading device that helps us analyze the wall surface temperature.
  • Termite tapper: Acts as a sounding tool for tracking them
  • Torch: provides illumination around the property.
  • Termatrac: Uses an advanced sensor to detect and track its activities.

Termite Inspector Checking Internal Walls

What if termites are found?

It is not unusual to detect activities during an inspection, as that is the essence of the inspection. When we detect their presence, we will immediately spray them with termiticide.

Pro Pest Control Cairns uses Termidor, and we are accredited Termidor applicators. If you spot them, don’t disturb them or try to kill them. Instead, call us.

Our Inspection technicians use Termidor to spray live termites. We also include it in our bait stations and use it for reticulation systems and barriers.

Termidor is a slow-acting termiticide that spreads by ingestion and contact. It uses a unique transfer effect to infect them. An infected termite will not die immediately after contact or ingestion.

It will carry the virus back to the nest and infect other termites by contact to make them secondary carriers. The process will continue throughout the termite colony until all of them are infected.

Termidor acts as a growth inhibitor that prevents moulting. It also weakens the mandible and prevents feeding. The termiticide will annihilate the nest in a few weeks.

We provide various treatment options depending on the type of termites we discover and the extent of the infestation. Our treatment choices include bait stations, barriers, and chemical sprays for easily accessible areas or an insecticidal foam for hard-to-reach areas.

Termite Treatment Services

  • Termite barrier

We use chemical and physical barriers to keep termites out of a property and kill them.

  • Physical barriers

These are used during renovation or pre-construction to seal possible entryways in advance. We use foams, sealants, mesh, and more to seal the foundation, joints, and other places subterranean termites can dig through. Sometimes, we mix these barriers with chemicals so that we can kill them and not just repel them.

  • Chemical barriers

Our technicians apply Termidor into the soil to form a protective zone around a property. We also install a termite reticulation system in places where we can’t dig. Unlike normal application to the loam, a reticulation system uses pre-installed pipes inside trenches to distribute Termidor around a commercial property.

  • Termite baiting system

Bait stations are designed to go inside the ground in places where termites forage. We fill the station with cellulose bait mixed with Termidor so they can feed on it and carry the virus back.
