Therefore, if you notice the typical warning signs of termite damage, prompt and effective termite treatment is crucial to maintaining the structural integrity and financial value of your home, workspace, or leased property. Thankfully, our comprehensive termite treatment solutions are designed to provide you with peace of mind and long-term results.

How Our Cost-Effective Termite Treatment Process Works

When it comes to effective termite treatment in Melbourne, a one-size-fits-all approach is not the way to go. We offer bespoke termite treatment plans tailored to the size, duration and species of your termite problem, to come up with the most effective method to minimise the damage and any opportunity for them to return. Some of our best termite treatments include, termite baiting and dusting, the application of chemical soil, full nest elimination and installing termite monitors.

However, rest assured that we will discuss all our options with you to find the best treatment for termites on your property. If you’re looking for affordable termites treatment, discover our comprehensive step-by-step plan to get rid of termites for good.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how our termite treatment process works:

1. Book Appointment

Organising your termite treatment management plan starts with a quick call to our friendly team to arrange a free assessment of your property in Melbourne. Call us on 1300 695 949 to book a time that suits your schedule. We’ll be sure to arrive on time and with a smile on our faces!

2. Termite Inspection

Our formal, complete termite inspections allow us to assess termite activity, evaluate the level of damage, determine entry points and work out what may have caused the termite infestation. You’ll sign an agreement beforehand stating that we’ve explained everything to you and you know what will be involved.

3. Termite Management Plan

When we visit your property for the first time, we will provide you with a termite management plan specific to your situation. This is an important first step to ensure you are fully informed of the process and that you understand why we believe the management proposed is in your best interests.

4. Eliminate Active Termites

It’s not always possible to locate the termite nest responsible for the damage in your home, so instead we treat the termites inside your building. We’ll use termite baits, termite foams, and termite dusts to ensure the colony attacking the home is eliminated; also reducing the chances of a future attack.

5. Install Management System

Two types of management systems can be used to prevent future termite attacks on buildings. One is a liquid termiticide treatment, applied to the soil around and under the house, or we can install a termite monitoring system, to be alerted early of any termite activity. We’ll let you know which is best for you.

6. Regular Inspections

Whatever the termite management system is installed, regular termite inspections (at least once per year) are required to maintain the warranty on the termite management system. Our team will arrange a clear schedule that is suitable with you to ensure the treatment plan is working.

Essential Tips For Effective Termite Treatments

Firstly, we highly recommend not disturbing a nest if a termite colony is found on or near your property. Doing so can scare the termites away temporarily, making them hard to locate and deal with. But before long they’ll return, and you’ll be faced with the same problem.

Leave them be, until you can call in a professional. Don’t use pesticides, insect sprays or any other chemical or household product to deter the termites. Simply give us a call on 0 1300 695 949, send a description or upload a picture to our site, and we’ll get in touch to provide you with a free consultation and no-obligation quote.

Expert Termite Tips & Guides

As part of our commitment to provide the most up-to-date advice for property owners about termites, we regularly update our blog with tips, tricks and termite control guides that you can follow to stay protected property. Explore our most recent termite advice and guides below!

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of termites treatment will depend on many factors, including the extent of the termite colony and the location of the nest. We can provide you with a free consultation, including a no-obligation quote, to give you an honest price for your termite treatment plan.

The duration of a termite treatment will depend on your individual situation, to guarantee complete extermination from your property. Roughly, it can take between a couple of weeks and a couple of months, depending on the species present, the scale of the infestation and the products we use during the treatment..

Termites can come back after treatment; in fact, they are known to purposely re-target locations where they’ve previously had nests. We will be able to point out areas of vulnerability or termite entry access points in your building to prevent this from happening. We also recommend conducting annual inspections to check for the presence of termites.

We use a variety of termite treatments to ensure your property stays termite free. Here is a breakdown of how each one works.

Termite Monitors – we use organic bait with an acting hormone inhibitor that termites take back to their nest and gradually kill the queen.

Termite Baits – similar to termite monitors, we lure termites with tempting cellulose that’s fitted with slow-acting insecticide to work its way into the whole colony.

Chemical Soil – we apply liquid termiticide to saturate the nearby soil to eliminate the termites without affecting the building.

Nest Elimination – we drill and temperature probe trees and other hot-spots around your property to detect the nest and tackle the problem at its source.

Termite Dusting / Foam Treatment – best used as a supplementary measure, we’ll directly attack the termites through a dust toxicant.

Termites treatment is a multifaceted approach. We want to make sure we minimise the damage to your building, to eliminate as many termites as possible and most crucially the queen, to disturb or remove the termite nest, and to prevent future termite attacks. That’s why we implement a number of termite treatments to ensure the most successful outcome and be able to provide a warranty on a termite-free property.

No, do not attempt to treat termites yourself – we highly recommend leaving termite treatment to the professionals. This is for two reasons. Firstly, termites are pretty hardy creatures; and they’re able to successfully evade or avoid a lot of amateur treatments. Secondly, we deal with some harsh chemicals that can be harmful to human skin, as well as leaving residues dangerous to pets if not handled properly.
