Termite Management Service Sunshine Coast – Possibly your wisest investment…

Termites are a dreaded pest for any homeowner and with good reason. Termites are extremely destructive and cause millions of dollars’ worth of damage each year. One thing you might not know is most insurance companies don’t cover damage caused by termites, so an annual termite inspection could be the wisest investment you make this year.

What do termites eat?

Termites sometimes referred to as “white ants” are always on the hunt for food and their favourite dish to demolish is timber. This doesn’t mean brick homes are not susceptible as well. Termites enter properties through small cracks and expansion joints but another common way is through wood to ground contact. This happens through doorframes, gate posts and deck posts. As termites eat from the inside visible detection can easily go unnoticed.

Why should you have a termite inspection
Regular termite inspections are essential for early detection of termite activity. Termites can cause extensive damage in a short space of time. They eat wood from the inside leaving a thin wood veneer on the outside for protection and shielding from light leaving you unaware of their presence. A proper inspection, conducted by a fully licensed pest control technician, is essential in determining whether termites are present and also help find ways to reduce the risk of termite invasion.

What is a termite inspection?
A termite inspection is a complete visual inspection of all areas in your home or property to detect any early signs of live termites, previous termite activity and damage plus finding any areas that are conducive to termite activity. This includes a thorough inspection of accessible roof voids, sub-floors, home interiors and exteriors plus garden areas including the fence line. Put simply everything on the block.

After completion
Our technicians will have a chat with you onsite to advise what has been discovered then a full termite report will be sent directly to you and we are always happy to answer any questions you might have.

When it comes to one of the biggest investments you will ever make, it pays to get expert advice. All Love pre-purchase inspections are carried out by fully accredited, experienced technicians who are highly trained in carrying out visual inspections.

Generally, before purchasing a property in Queensland a pre-purchase termite pest inspection is done prior to signing on the dotted line. This ensures that your home has no hidden termite issues or damage. We will not only advise you on any timber pests found but also any risks that could attract termites such as fungal decay or high moisture levels which are conducive to pest activity. We will also inform you on any existing termite management treatments and if they are still effective.

With our pre-purchase termite inspections we do a thorough visual investigation of accessible roof voids and subfloor areas, the interior and exterior of the building, fences, exposed timbers, trees, stumps and garden beds… everything including the garden shed.

Added Bonus
If after settlement, All Love install a full termite barrier or termite monitoring and baiting system within 12 months of your inspection we will give the cost of your termite inspection back to you.

A chemical termite barrier can be a fantastic option for anyone looking to protect their home or business with little maintenance over a long period of time.

The barrier consists of a continual wall of liquid termiticide applied around the foundations of the building. The chemical we used is Termidor. A superior product that lasts as long as eight years – much longer compared to others on the market saving you $$$ long term. Termidor is extremely effective as it does more than simply act as a barrier. The slow acting chemical is undetectable by termites and when they come into contact with a treated area the product is transferred to the termite and the active ingredient is taken back helping eliminate the nest.

With chemical barriers we recommend a yearly termite inspection to ensure the termite barrier is working effectively and that it has not been breached.

Most homeowners aren’t aware that their home and contents are generally not covered for repair or treatment costs associated with termite damage by the home insurance policy. The best protection is a termite barrier around the property together with an annual termite inspection. Although there is an initial outlay it is a wise investment potentially saving you thousands in repairs.

All Love termite management services offers a range of termite barriers each designed to provide protection of your property.

In some cases, your house might not be appropriate for a liquid chemical barrier or you might prefer something different. No worries, we also offer a wide range of termite baiting and monitoring systems.

The purpose of a termite baiting system is to intercept termites before they reach, and potentially damage your property. The main aim is to eradicate termite colonies by the termites returning the bait back to the nest.

Baiting stations are a great way to safely detect and eradicate termites where a chemical barrier is not practical. It’s also a safer alternative for property owners who prefer not to use traditional chemical treatment methods.

We are happy to inspect your property to find out the right option that works best of you and your property – free of charge of course.

Experience backed by technology

Radar Technology

Our latest investment in termite detection technology is the newest on the market, the Termatrac T3i. This helps us investigate through radar detection technology areas of high concern with accurate results. This non-invasive tool allows us to detect and locate termite activities without damaging your walls.

Thermal Imaging

People and animals emit heat including termites. Heat patterns on our thermal imaging equipment can indicate when a heat source is present. This helps in locating termites infestations inside wall cavities and other places that are not visible or accessible.

Moisture Meter

Subterranean termites love moisture, well actually they need it to survive. They use moisture to soften timbers and make their distinctive mud tubes. Using moisture meters we can detect areas that hold high moisture and potentially uncover termite nests. Moisture meters are used as ‘standard’ in all our termite inspections.
