We’ve highlighted some of the most common defenses in the war against termite infestation:

Wood termite treatment

Effective termite treatment of wood includes surface spray, injected spray, and foams. Borate wood treatments can also be used, which will kill any existing termites whilst preventing future infestation.

Soil termite treatment

Soil termite treatment is used in the surrounding area to exterminate any termites living within it. A trench is created as a barrier against the termites, to which the soil is then treated with a termiticide. This method not only exterminates termites but prevents future infestation.

Bait system

Baits are an important tool for the control and prevention of termites. Termite baiting systems contain wood attractive to termites, which is placed in the ground around the property. This system works as a monitoring station, where termites are intercepted prior to entering your home.

Two major types of Termites on The Gold Coast

There are multiple species of termites, however, the Gold Coast contains two common species: the Subterranean Termite, and Drywood Termite (source: City of Gold Coast).

  • Subterranean termite
    Subterranean termites, also known as ‘white ants’ are highly destructive in nature. They create a nested structure with a nursery and foraging gallery system that must be a connection to the soil as a source of moisture. Galleries within timber have walls plastered with faeces whilst external galleries consist of mud or carton materials. Most termite species are subterranean inhabit.
  • Drywood termite
    Drywood termites live in galleries within timber or within very short bridging galleries between adjacent pieces of timber. They require no connection to the soil and maintain clear gallery walls. Faeces accumulate from free running pellets or frass (excrement of insect larvae) with the consistency of coarse pepper.
