Canberra’s Most Trusted Termite Inspection
At City Pest Control, we combine the latest technology with decades of expertise to bring you the best termite inspection services you can find. Our family-owned company has been in business for decades, and our licensed, insured professionals have paved the way to professional pest control against all 85 pest species present in Canberra and Queanbeyan.
Termites are extremely destructive pests that can cause damage to many structures. Subterranean termites, specifically, are small soft pale pests that can live in colonies of up to 1 million. If you don’t take action against these pests, they will cost thousands of dollars of your saved money in destruction and property damage. Are you insured for this? NO. That’s why all Australian homeowners need to have a regular inspection to combat and prevent termite damage.
In Canberra, the entire termite inspection process should cost between $200-$500, and it should be completed once a year.
If termites are found, there are a few options for eradication:
This strategy uses termiticide to kill live termites (and possibly their colony). For a single controlled space, this should cost from $150-$200.
During this strategy, technicians dig or drill a trench into the footings of your property and apply termiticide into the trenches, This can facilitate long-term termite control, ensuring a termite-free home for up to 8 years. Costs here generally range from $1500-$5000, though the price varies based on the size of your home and the severity of your infestation.
This is a long-term suite of services — including foaming, baiting, and other strategies — that aims to kill the termite colony and its Queen. Costs here start at $2000.
The baiting system includes installation and monitoring of bait. Costs can start as low as $17 per week, though you can often see an overall range of $2500-$3500.
Termite inspection is generally a quick process. Once you give one of our experts a call, we will be able to inspect your home within a few days. That said, the termite eradication process might take longer depending on how established the colony is in your space. Long-term solutions, in particular, can take weeks to months to complete effectively. Once finished, termites will be eradicated from your home for up to 8 years.
At City Pest Control Services Services, we guarantee our services and offer a 12 month warranty to guarantee customer satisfaction.

We also use the best technology in the industry, including Termatrac T3i 3-in-1 sensors. This powerful tool, along with Fir thermal imaging cameras, gives us the best chances to detect all termites and effectively serve our clients from day one.
What Types of Termite Inspections Do You Offer?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TERMITE INSPECTION IN CANBERRA
The short answer? Yes! Termites have been known to attack new houses even days after they have been completed. The age of your home does not determine your likelihood of infestation, though older homes might have an unnoticed problem.
It’s not hard for subterranean termites to make their way into your home. They can enter straight from the soil or build airtight tubes from their colony into the wood of your house — and they only need an opening that’s a fraction of an inch wide.
Having trouble distinguishing between termites and other run-of-the-mill household pests like ants? Well, there are a few ways you can tell the difference between termite swarmers and ant swarmers. For one, termite wings are much more brittle than ant wings, so you may notice damage right away. Additionally, termites have a broad waist and straight antennae, while ants have a narrow waist and curved antennae.
Depending on what kind of treatment you get for your termite problem, there may be a slight odor directly after extermination. That said, this odor doesn’t linger, and it should dissipate within a couple of days.
Not practically. Though you may be able to buy the products needed at your local store, you’re unlikely to have all the special equipment and knowledge required to do the job properly. You’ll also be more likely to face injury or poisoning — so we recommend that you leave things to the professionals.
