Termite Treatments in Paddington
Termites are small, winged insects that are closely related to cockroaches. They are found in every continent except Antarctica and they live in colonies underground. Termites feed on wood and other cellulose-based materials, such as straw, cardboard, bagasse, paper, and materials made of plant cellulosic fibers. Once they settle in somewhere, they pose a serious problem for homeowners in Australia.
There are three main types of termites: drywood (these live in wood that is not touching the ground), dampwood (these termites prefer wood that is moist) and subterranean (these are the most common type and they live underground).
Think that termites are harmless and you can ignore the infestation that you have? Think again!
- They cause damage to homes, wood structures, and crops every year in Australia. We’re talking billions of dollars worth of damage.
- Termites can be expensive to treat and prevent but choosing to work with the Pest Doctors will ensure you’re getting value for money.
- Termites can be a health risk to humans because they can cause allergies and asthma. They can also carry diseases that can be harmful to humans, such as salmonella and dysentery. If you have pets, you should be aware that termites do bite when they feel threatened and your pet(s) might develop infection through their bite wounds.

Key Pests in Paddington
The key pests in Paddington are termites, cockroaches, ants and in winter, rodents. The sub-tropical climate results in warm temperatures and good rainfall all year round, meaning pests can breed quickly and infestations can get quickly out of control. With very mild winters, there are no cold temperatures to reduce populations in winter, so pests are a year round problem.
Paddington is a hilly, leafy suburb providing an ideal environment for termites, especially in the gully areas where there is increased soil moisture. There are a lot of older, weatherboard homes in Paddington, which can make a nice feast for termites! Although these older homes are built on piers due to the sloping blocks, which allows termite activity to be detected, regular termite inspections and termite protection systems are a must for homeowners.
Popular pest control treatments for Paddington residents
A once a year general pest treatment is a great option, especially to keep those large cockroaches and spiders under control. By combining the pest treatment with their annual termite inspection our Paddington customers can save a bit of money too!
However, although termite inspections are a must, they don’t actually stop termites entering and attacking the building. As such we strongly recommend to Paddington residents that they should install a termite protection system around their home to prevent a termite attack. Given many of the blocks in Paddington are on sloping blocks, we often recommend termite baiting systems as the best option.

Paddington – Local facts
Paddington is only 2km from Brisbane CBD and was settled by Europeans in the 1850s. With the sloping blocks, the original homes were built on piers lifting the home off the ground and a number of these original Queenslander homes still exist. Although an expensive suburb today, Paddington was actually a working class suburb and had a large number of worker cottages for the employees at the city factories. Many of these small Queenslander homes on small 405m2 blocks also still exist.
Paddington was and still is largely a residential area, with schools such as Petrie Terrace State School (founded in 1868), a number of churches and parks. There are a number of shopping areas such as Given Terrace and Latrobe Terrace and give the close proximity to the CBD and universities, it also has a lively night life, with the Paddington Tavern and Caxton Street Hall well known venues.
