Suspect you may have termites?

If you are a homeowner, the most convenient way to avoid termites is to have your home inspected regularly for these creatures and other pests.

Bob Gunn Termite Solutions exists to help you with this. We will design an effective solution for your problem that not only meets your needs but also your budget.

Termites in a building are not always obvious, which means that many people have an infestation and don’t even know. However, with our termite inspections for Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, and surrounding regions, you can rest easy knowing that you have taken the first step to protect your house from termites.

During our inspections, we thoroughly inspect every part of your home looking for signs of termite infestation such as

  • Termite mud tunnels
  • Hollow sounding wood
  • Bubbling paint
  • Stubborn doors and windows

  • Dropping in ceiling or roof truss height
  • High moisture areas
  • Leaking bathrooms

Once we identify the termite infestation we can start the process of treating the active Termites as part of the Termite management programme for your property.

Termite Treatment in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Surrounding Areas

Termites often hide themselves well, which means you could have an infestation without knowing it. That’s why Bob Gunn Termite Solutions provides thorough termite inspection services in Brisbane, Gold Cost, Sunshine Coast, and the surrounding areas. We check every part of your home, especially those areas where termites might hide or where signs of an infestation would be more visible.

We look for signs like small holes in the walls and squeaky floors. We also check any wooden structures or furniture for maze-like patterns.

Signs include:

  • Timber Damage
  • Blistering Paint
  • Strange Marks
  • Faulty Electrics

Alates

The reproductives, consisting of dark-coloured males and females with fully developed wings, later on leave the nest. After flying in swarms, they shed their wings, pair off and mate.

The pair of reproductives will then find a location to begin a new colony, where they are the king and queen, responsible for the production of eggs.

We know a lot about termites. For more information, call us in Brisbane today on 07 3286 9877.

In most cases, home insurance will only cover property damage that is unexpected and accidental. Termite damage arises as a result of gradual occurrence and is considered preventable, making this an exclusion to average home insurance policies.

Termite damage, therefore, is not covered by home insurance and becomes the responsibility of the homeowner.

Termite treatments require ongoing maintenance to keep your property protected from these pests. As part of your termite management, you will need to schedule an annual termite inspection.

We use Termatrac which detects vibrations in the wall. When there is a need to confirm termite activities, a thermal camera may also be used.

  • Comprehensive Termite Inspection
  • Full Termite Inspection Reports
  • Baiting
  • Termite Barriers

Our termite protection for preconstruction includes:

  • Kordon Termite Barriers
  • Altis Reticulation Systems

Reticulation systems are designed to treat areas under concrete slabs and around the external perimeter of structures to prevent termites from entering the building.

When this barrier is installed in the entry points of termites during the construction, active termite activity becomes more visible. This means almost zero damages and quicker eradication.

Termites are not strong enough to eat through concrete. Concrete does not give any form of nourishment to termites either. However, termites can squeeze themselves through and provide a passageway to get to the nearest food source. They can still get to any timber building materials in your home. Having concrete foundation is not a foolproof barrier for termites.

It is important to remember that a termite nest would likely to have somewhere between 2,000 and 5,000 new eggs laid every single day. For a colony to be sustained, it requires access to multiple food supplies. If they are on your property, they will be in search for new things to eat.

Thus, it is important that any existing termite nests in your property be treated, or that preventative methods, such as chemical barriers, are in place to avoid termites from reaching and damaging your property.

Know that the houses in a neighbourhood can share one termite colony. If one house got termites treated it can make termites more active in another house that is already infested. However, this will not drive them to another house that have chemical barriers in place. Termites are not going to safely cross to infest your house.

You can kill the ones you can hit but the underlying problem is the colony that they came from remains and only in exterminating the colony will you remove the threat brought by termites.

Termites are among the hardest insects to get rid of. Finding them alone is challenging and gaining access to them is whole another story. You need the know-how and access to effective treatments if you want to get rid of them. It is always best to contact a professional to do the job for you instead of spending countless hours and money to have the termites in another part of the house with more damage to repair.

The materials used do not attract termites however mulch spread over three inches deep can create an inviting habitat for the pests. The layers of organic matter traps heat and moisture next to the ground and termites will use this thick mulch as a shelter.

Typically houses have wooden frame so it is still not safe from termites. No matter how the wood is separated from the ground, termites will find their way to it.

Yes. Several colonies of termites can occupy your home but each colony do not mingle from one to the other.
