For all the beauty Brisbane has got to offer, it can’t be denied that Brisbane is home to some of the highest-risk suburbs for termites in all of Australia.
In fact, when you truly think about it, you’ll come to the realisation that you may have spent more of your money on repairs caused by termite damage as opposed to spending them on damage caused by other disasters.

WHY TERMITE INSPECTION IS SO IMPORTANT
Statistics show that at least 1 out of every 3 homes in Australia will experience termite problems.
This means that if you live in a quiet street with 30 homes, at least 10 of them will get these unwelcome visitors at some stage. This can devalue your home by more than 20%?
Termites cause an estimated $1 billion dollars in damage annually. Throughout our experience, we have found that termite infestation to a dwelling has generally occurred due to the simply fact that no effective termite protection exists.
That is why termite inspection is crucial to every home. Invest in termite inspection now before it’s too late and you have to spend much more. More Information
HOW TO IDENTIFY IF YOU HAVE TERMITES
Are you concerned about termites and other timber-devouring pests?
Termites are comparable in size to ants, which makes it difficult to detect.
Here are a few ways you can determine whether you may have termites:
Hollow sounding timber: Termites feed below the surface of the wood/timber making them very hard to notice. Has a hollow sound when you tap or knock.
Any cracked or bubbling paint: This is caused by the internal damage the termites cause.
Termite droppings: Also known as frass, they don’t cause the damage but are more of an indicator.
Odour: This may be a musty/pungent odor, similar to water damage.
Mud tunnels: Made up from a mixture of frass and mud. This is what connects the nest to the food source, found on the exterior of the walls.
There are many other ways you can identify termites but without professional help, you are more likely to see the damage they cause before you see the termites themselves.That’s why it is best to leave it to the experts. More Information

Chemcially-based termite treatment is one of the most common ways of protecting properties just like yours. These termite treatments are especially popular because they provide ongoing protection. In chemical termite treatment, we apply an approved termiticide to the soil around the structure, so that there is no part of the structure that the termites can access without tunnelling through the treated soil. If termites come in contact with the treated soil they are killed before they can do any damage. Things you should know about chemical termite treatments for soil (termite barriers):
