Termites are small, hard-to-detect creatures that can be highly destructive. Subterranean termites will cause severe and costly damage to your property and commercial buildings. Unfortunately, the climate and conditions in Queensland are well suited to destructive termites.

What are the most common destructive termites in Queensland?

The two most common destructive groups of termites in Queensland are the subterranean termite and drywood termite.

These termites can cause millions of dollars in damage to homes and businesses, so it’s important to be aware of them and take steps to protect your property.

  • Mud tubes built on the exterior of your home.

  • Dirt mounds near the foundations or in the yard.
  • Swarms of flying insects near windows or doors.
  • Wooden beams that are soft and deteriorating.

  • Keep your property well-maintained and free of any rotting wood or debris.
  • Do not store wood or cardboard against or under the property structure.
  • Fix any leaks or moisture damage right away.

Termite protection is essential if you live in Queensland.

Baiting is a great way to kill termites, because the baits are taken back to the nest and eaten by the rest of the termites in the colony, eventually killing the entire colony.

Chemical barrier protection can be in a liquid form, and this is used to treat around the perimeter of the property and any termite entry points. All the chemical treatments used by Precision Pest Control are proven over time and with our experience to be safe and effective.
