OMG I have termites!
How do I get rid of termites?
This is an alarming question and if it is the one in the front of your mind right now, then you have come to the right place.
Termites are a destructive pest and need two things to thrive - food and water, and in South-East Queensland, these are in abundance and the risk of termites is very high. The warm humid weather in South-East Queensland provide the perfect conditions, and many homes here are built using wooden beams and timber structures, which are cellulose (termites' food source), and provide the perfect conditions for termites to thrive.
Any signs of termite activity can send homeowners into a state of panic, and the property damage to homes caused by termites can be expensive to fix if the infestation gets hold. From our research, the average cost to fix an average-sized home following a termite attack is around $8,000.
However, Suburban Pest Management is here to solve the problem for you. The first step is to give our team a call or book your FREE termite assessment online, and we will come and investigate for you. It is an opportunity for one of our qualified technicians to come out to your property, look for visible signs of termite activity, discuss your concerns and your property's history, and provide you with some options as to what to do next to enable you to make an informed decision. Please note that a free termite assessment is not a full termite inspection.

What about me? How do I know whether or not I have termites? Should I get my property checked?
Termites are sneaky pests and not easy to spot so even though you may not have seen any visible signs of termite damage, entire termite colonies may be hidden nearby or underneath your property without you knowing. If these are the questions you have, then yes, you should get your property checked - there is no reason not to as our online termite assessment offer is free.
Apart from seeing active termites, there are a number of other reasons why you might be visiting this page:
- You may have thought you have seen some of the signs of termites, but you are not sure - If this is you, get us out to your property and we can check for you.
- Your property has had a termite infestation or termite damage at some point in the past - this means an increased risk of termites in future. Having your property regularly checked for evidence of termites is an excellent step to prevent future termite attacks.
- You might have seen some termite alates flying around attracted to light, or wings on the ground under light fixtures – Termite alates (winged termites) are the reproductive termites and they leave their colonies in Spring and Summer looking for new colony sites. When they land, they drop their wings and become de-alates. From there they look for a new home. If you see alates around, they are not necessarily a sign that termites have invaded your property, rather, a sign that termites are nearby and looking to start a new colony. So it is a good reminder to have your property checked just in case they decide that your home is their new home.
- You may just want to have your property routinely checked for termites - Even if you don't suspect you have termites, we recommend that every home or business be checked for termites at least once per year, and a free termite assessment for peace of mind costs nothing.
