Termites

Termites cause significant damage to homes in Queensland every year – don’t let your home become a statistic.

Unfortunately, no system currently exists to completely prevent termite entry into a home or building. Termite management systems work on the basis that they will force termites into an exposed location, which allows early detection and eradication. Termite management systems must be inspected and maintained on a regular basis, otherwise the potential for infestation increases dramatically.

Incorrectly installed gardens and the storage of materials are two key factors that can obstruct visual zones for inspections and allow the concealed entry of termites.
