Soft-bodied and small in size, one termite doesn’t look like a destructive pest that requires effective control, but many make up huge colonies - which can number in the thousands or even millions of destructive pests.
So what do you do if you discovered termites or suspect termite activity in your home? First, remember to breathe :-) Now it's tempting to break it open and treat it yourself, however this can make things worse. Watch the video below from the owner of Suburban Pest Management, Tom Aldridge, who will step you through exactly what you need to do if you find termites in your home.
Effective termite control, especially in the vulnerable Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, and Gold Coast areas, requires an experienced team of termite control professionals that know the habits of this communal insect. A team like the licensed pest control inspectors and technicians from Suburban Pest Management.
You see, knowing about the termite’s tendency to put the colony’s welfare ahead of its own—can give pest control professionals keen insight into how to eliminate them from your property.
That kind of expertise is what you need to keep termites out of your home for good. Without it, a good-sized colony of termites can move in, start chomping on your home’s timber, and can have you looking at significant damage within as little as a few months.
Forewarned is forearmed. Discover how an effective termite control service can save you thousands of dollars from damage to expensive structures and timber.

Brisbane Termite Services with Local Knowledge and Expertise
Termites can vary widely by region, both in their habits and their appearance, so it takes a local termite service to know the types of termites that inhabit the Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas.
Brisbane termite services whose inspectors and technicians have years of experience with local pests are the best choice for Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast property owners and businesses. At Suburban Pest Management, we provide our personnel with the latest in equipment and training, so they can identify whether you have a termite infestation.
Our termite inspections are nothing but thorough. Inside your home, we peep into corners, examine your floors, walls, and ceilings. Then we look inside your in-built cabinetry, look for any cracks into which termites can crawl, or any peeling paint that could indicate the presence of termites. We also look at your window and doors to see if all the seals are intact and double-check rooms that tend to be damp, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
If you have a basement, we check that as well. Outside, we look under your deck, examine stumps, trees, and shrubbery, and look inside other buildings on your property. If you have timber stored around your property, we’ll look in there, too. To a termite, a pile of stored timber is like a holiday feast.
We don’t neglect your roof, either. Gutters, downspouts, gables, rafters—our pest control technicians check it all. Afterward, we give you the rundown on what we found and make our recommendation for treatment, if we do find termites on your property.
A common misconception is where there's black ants, you won't find termites. Watch the video below from the owner of Suburban Pest Management, Tom Aldridge, as he demonstrates an example of how termites and ants have built their colonies next to each other in the same fence post.
Professional Termite Treatment Essential for Brisbane, Gold Coast, And Sunshine Coast Properties
Many of the same things that drew you to the Brisbane, Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast area are exactly what makes these areas prime for a termite infestation. A warm climate, moist sea breezes—it’s paradise for a termite.
That makes professional termite treatment a must—even if termites haven’t come knocking at your door yet.
In fact, the Australian Government requires homeowners and builders to treat certain areas of their properties as a preventative measure. We recommend that our customers go beyond the Government’s requirement to ensure that you won’t have to deal with a termite invasion in the future.
The fact is, even stone, concrete, and brick buildings have some wooden components in them. To a termite, wood’s dinner no matter where it comes from.
When you live in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast, it pays to be proactive. Be smart. Get your termite control program started before the insects do.
Your Termite Treatment Cost Protects Property Value
You might think that treating your property for termites is expensive. It’s nothing, though, compared to the property value you may lose if you don’t get it treated.
And, what’s worse, the longer you leave it, the more damage your buildings will suffer. What may now be a minor repair could cost you thousands in the future if the insects invade your home’s major structural components.
Furthermore, if you do plan to sell your home or refinance it, you’ll need to show that your home has had regular termite treatments. We work with all the area’s major lenders and conveyancers to make sure that our termite treatment stands heads above the rest when it comes to property value.
Effective Termite Management Systems Require Regular Monitoring
Termite management doesn’t stop with eliminating your current infestation. If you have a baiting system, we will come to your property to monitor them regularly. For any property, we also recommend that you have your property inspected at least once a year, maybe more, depending on your situation and your location.
