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:

Quick 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.

Baiting System

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.

These types of inspections are conducted when a property is being sold and the prospective buyer needs a pest report, or for protecting the home on a yearly basis.

Upon completion, our technician will then complete a report on a computer advising of any findings. This comprehensive report generally comes with 9-14 pages of detailed pictures and information/facts about the inspection.

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.
