Gold Coast Pest Management Solutions provides full-service termite inspection, prevention and treatment programs. We specialise in providing proactive and aggressive treatments that can prevent termites from coming anywhere near your home in the first place or using effective bait-and-monitor systems that completely eliminate termite colonies once detected.
Stopping Termites in their Tracks
Because prevention is usually the best medicine, we recommend termite barriers to keep termites from getting anywhere close to your home, particularly its foundation, which is the most inviting and easiest point of entry for these nasty pests.
Treating the soil outside the foundation with an approved termiticide is so effective that we offer it as a pre-construction service as well as for existing structures.
One of the best options for preventative treatment that we recommend and use regularly is installation of a chemical perimeter reticulation system such as TermX, which is designed specifically for conditions in Australia. Chemical perimeter reticulation systems use a system of buried pipes to keeps termiticide pumped into the soil for an optimal level of termite prevention.
This system acts as a highly effective chemical barrier around the foundation of your home, regularly replenishing the active chemicals through perforations in the piping. This system can be installed around both new and existing construction and makes re-treatment simple. It’s also environmentally friendly (but termite hostile!).
Termite Barriers: Baiting the Enemy
Another important service we offer is the placement and monitoring of sophisticated termite baits. This is a highly effective system for dealing with a situation when termite activity has been detected in or around your home, and we find it’s the best way to kill off entire termite colonies—which is absolutely necessary if you want to prevent a recurrence of termite problems and the damage that results.
We use the trusted Nemesis brand of termite baiting, which attracts termites to consume the lethal bait and then carry it back to the colony, where the other colony dwellers are hungrily waiting. As the baiting process begins to take effect, we continue to monitor the baiting stations to track termite consumption of the poison and replenish as necessary.
Typically used when termites have been detected on the property, the bait-and-monitor system is a great way to know for sure if a colony has been successfully eliminated. It sounds simple—and it is—but you do need a professional, well-trained pest-control expert to follow through and make sure the termites no longer pose any threat. The last thing you want is to see the same colony rebuild, regroup and return to your home.
Termite baiting—as well as installation of chemical barriers—is equally effective and often advisable for structures outside the home as well. In some cases we treat around fences, storage sheds and other areas where termites pose a risk. As always, the idea is to send a clear message to termites to stay away—they’re not welcome here, and you’ll rest assured knowing you have qualified professionals on your side to keep it that way.
Why Termite Barriers Matter
The team at Gold Coast Pest Management Solutions is passionate about protecting the homes of our customers from termites for a simple reason: We know the stakes are high. We have seen it too often—homeowners having to deal with the hassle of eliminating a termite infestation that’s already taken place. No one wants their home damaged by termites, and the reality is that these pests pose a real risk in our part of the world. Repairs are costly and inconvenient, and in the worst-case scenario, any evidence of a termite problem that remains can hurt your eventual resale value.
That’s why we use the most comprehensive termite prevention programs, always staying on top of advances in the science, methods and products in professional termite protection. We provide the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve hired the company that knows better than anyone how to prevent and eliminate termites, so you don’t have to worry about it.
