Termite Protection in Brisbane
Termites are some of the most dangerous pests your house could get. Despite their size, they can cause incredible amounts of property damage. Termites don’t contaminate your food or pose a health risk with bacteria and bites; they threaten the very structure of your home. They eat the wood of your home and can seriously impact the structure, leading to foundation issues, cracked walls, doors and windows that don’t close, and many other problems. This can become expensive and even cause your home to become unliveable. Termites are also very difficult to get rid of, which makes it especially important that you get the best professional termite bait stations in Brisbane to help you deal with the problem. That’s what we have to offer at Pest Doctors. We’re experts on all pests including termites, and we can help eradicate your termite problem before it goes too far. When you need termite protection in Brisbane, we’re the obvious answer.
Signs You Need A Termite System In Brisbane
One of the reasons why termites can be so dangerous and destructive is the fact that they’re so small and usually stay within the walls. You often won’t see them out in the open, which means it’s easy to not even notice that you have termites threatening the structure of your home and secretly eating away at your walls. Homeowners are advised to keep an eye out for the signs of a termite infestation, which include:
- Quiet clicking sounds from within the walls
- Discarded wings from flying termites
- Flying termites
- Creatures that look like white ants (they’re actually termites!)
- Walls and floors sound hollow
- Walls and floors become papery and thin
- Doors fit tighter and windows are hard to open
- Tunnels within pieces of wood
- Small black marks and a dark powdery substance (these are termite droppings)
If you’ve discovered or experienced any of these in your home, now is the time to act. You might have termites, so contact Pest Doctors in Brisbane for professional termite bait stations. We offer Southside pest control as well as pest control in Brisbane’s Northside.
You’ve Got to Act Fast – Seek A Brisbane Termite Specialist
When termites show up and start eating your house, don’t take it personally. They’re not interested in who lives there; they’re just getting on with their lives and need to eat and drink just like we do. But what they eat is wood, and they are determined to find it. As for water, any source of moisture is fine by them. Pest Doctors are the Brisbane termite specialists and we know how to get rid of termites because we understand them.
How Does a Termite Specialist in Brisbane Operate?
We are an established, family-run business and we know what makes termites tick, what they want and how they go about getting it. So, we will find and destroy termite nests if at all possible – and sometimes they are well hidden in the ground, so you can’t find them, in which case we will safely provide bait so they can take the poison back to their nest and wipe themselves out. As the leading termite specialists in Brisbane, we know how they get in and we can advise on how to put a stop to it. We will identify the source of the moisture that makes your place attractive to termites and help you stop that, too. Prevention is better than cure, but if it’s already happening, contact us today and we can sort it out for you.
Providing Brisbane With Professional Termite Bait Stations
At Pest Doctors, we take advantage of a number of different strategies to completely eradicate termites from your home. After you’ve accepted a quote, we’ll begin with a comprehensive Brisbane termite inspection to determine where the termites are and what the best treatment will be, as well as monitor afterwards for the results of the treatment. The first step is to locate and destroy the nest, but this isn’t always possible. The nest is usually hidden and can be outside of your home. If the nest can’t be located, we’ll use termite baits, foams and/or dust to eliminate active termites from your home. Baits are placed in active areas and take a while to act, but they can completely get rid of the termites even without finding a nest. We offer a zero-termite guarantee and will remove all termites from your property. After this, we install a termite management system for long-term termite protection for your Brisbane property. With our ZERO TEMITE GUARANTEE, you can rest assured that if the termites return, we’ll come back for a new treatment at no extra cost. If you’re looking for the best and most reliable termite systems in Brisbane, choose the Pest Doctors.

The price of termite treatments is always a concern. Check out our blog article on how much a termite treatment costs to understand the factor involved in pricing a treatment.
Termite treatment proposal
Our FREE quotes are actually a formal termite treatment proposal as required by Australian Standards 3660.2 2017. These are not just quotes but important legal documents, as they detail what’s included in the treatment, the expected outcomes / limitations and also list alternative options (if appropriate). As you can imagine, when carrying out treatments to protect assets worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, it is important that you are protected.
The termite treatment proposal will contain details on the treatment process to eliminate termites and the recommended termite management system to provide the long-term protection of your home.
In many case a number of different treatment options may be available. Check out our post about which is the best termite treatment for more information.
Although the proposal is a written document, we will take time to discuss it with you in person.
Once you’re happy with the proposal and quote, the document needs to be signed before we proceed.
Comprehensive termite inspection
In many cases, Pest Doctors will have only carried out a partial inspection in order to provide the quote. Before starting the treatment, Pest Doctors must carry out a comprehensive termite inspection to make sure all details are recorded correctly.
Ensuring all activity and termite entry points are correctly identified is vital to ensure the correct treatment is applied and also to monitor over time, to make sure the treatment has been successful.
At the Pest Doctors we always use Thermal imaging cameras on all our inspections at no extra charge, for that important peace of mind!
Eliminate active termites
The first step in any professional termite bait station in Brisbane is to try and locate and eliminate the nest. If a nest is located we will treated it or physically destroy it (if possible). However, since nests are often located underground and are well hidden, and could be up to 100 m from the building, it can be very difficult!
As such the minimum goal is to eliminate active termites from inside the building. We do this using one of a number of products: termite baits, foams and dust. The choice of product depending on the species present and nature of the infestations.
Depending on the level of infestation and products used, elimination of active termites can take between a couple of weeks and several months before the building is declared termite free.
Termite baits take the longest to act, but they have the added benefit that they actually eliminate the colony (without physically having to locate the nest). Termites take the termite bait back to the nest and feed it to other members of the colony. It contains a slow acting insecticide which eventually kills the queen and eliminated the colony.
Termite baits can be placed above ground on areas of activity or in-ground to intercept termites before they get to your house.
At Pest Doctors we offer a Zero Termite Guarantee – so you can have confidence we will get rid of termites from your home.
Once the termites have been eliminated, we can install a termite management system around the property to provide the long-term protection for your property.
Install a termite management system
There are two options for termite management systems to provide the long termite protection:
- Liquid termiticide treatments to the soil
- Termite monitoring and baiting systems
For soil treatments we only use Termidor from BASF, the world’s leading soil treatment product. Termidor creates a non-repellent treated zone around the property which termites cannot detect and die when the tunnel into the treated zone. As an accredited applicator, qualifying treatments are backed by the Termidor $2 million timber protection assurance warranty.
For termite monitoring and baiting we generally recommend the AlwaysActive system from Sentricon. This next generation baiting system is always active, ready to eliminate any termite nests in the area.
The choice of system will depend on the situation at your property (construction type, soil conditions, slope of the block, etc), budget considerations and any personal preference. Note: depending on your situation, only one type of termite management system may be appropriate.
At Pest Doctors we offer a Zero Termite Guarantee, which means we guarantee that any termite management system we install will keep your home free from termites, providing we carry out annual termite inspections and any recommendations regarding building maintenance and corrective actions are followed.
