A Termite Inspection is Essential in Canberra
Canberra is home to around 30 termite species. Of these, two species of subterranean termite (Coptotermes frenchi and Nasutitermes exitiosus) cause much of the damage. Subterranean termites are typically small, soft and light brown in colour; and can live in colonies of up to 1 million. If you don’t take action against termites in Canberra, they have the ability to destroy your property very quickly. Are you insured for this? NO. That’s why we recommend a yearly termite inspection in Canberra.
How Much Does a Termite Inspection Cost in Canberra?
The entire termite inspection process in Canberra should cost between $260-$500, and it should be completed once a year.
If termites are found on your Canberra property, there are a few options for eradication:
This strategy uses termiticide to kill live termites (and possibly their colony) in Canberra. For a single controlled space, this should cost from $150-$200.
The Termite Barrier
As part of this strategy, technicians dig or drill a trench into the footings of your property and apply termiticide into the trenches. This can provide long-term termite control, ensuring a termite-free home in Canberra or Queanbeyan for up to 8 years. Costs here generally range from $1500-$5000, though the price varies on the size of your home and the severity of the infestation.
Termite Colony Procedures
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.
How Long Does Termite Inspection Take?
An initial termite inspection in Canberra or Queanbeyan can take several hours. 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 completed, termites will be eradicated from your Canberra or Queanbeyan home for up to 8 years.
