Townsville Termite Protection and Control
Beautiful Townsville doesn’t just attract tourists. The warmth and sunshine also attract termites. Termites cause extensive structural damage to buildings throughout northern Queensland, with 1 in 3 buildings suffering a termite attack in Australia.
Even coastal communities need to be proactive when it comes to termites. That’s why you need to install a termite management system prior to your next build.
Whether it’s for your existing property, renovating or building a new home call 1300 270 019. Speak to our experts and book a termite inspection or install a termite management system.
Townsville is prone to termite infestations
Townsville unfortunately has slow-spreading infestations of the invasive West Indian drywood termite. Unlike other Australian termite species, drywood termites don’t require contact with soil. So treatments used to prevent more common subterranean termites from getting into homes won’t work on these termites.
The West Indian drywood termite is also not as easy to detect. Their smaller colonies work within the wood, so you can’t see any tracks. By the time you suspect a problem, expensive structural damage has already occurred within the frame of your home.
In 2021, the Queensland government scrapped free fumigation for West Indian drywood termites. Fumigation costs amounted to $30 000 per house, as often the problem was left until it was too late.
Most home insurance policies don’t cover homes for termite damage. This is because termites are classed as an insect. Policies may cover damage due to animals, such as a bird trapped in the house. But, rodents and insect damage are not included. That’s why regular termite inspections by a professional are so important.
Install a termite management system before building
New builds in Townsville are factoring in termite controls to safeguard for the future. Termite management systems deter termites from attacking your building with physical and/or chemical barriers.
Flickguard is a flexible physical termite system that provides protection from subterranean termites. It is impregnated with deltamethrin and laminated top and bottom with a rugged plastic membrane, stopping the treatment from escaping into the environment.
The Kordon Termite System by Bayer blocks termite access to your home through the soil with a physical and chemical barrier. Homeguard is another all-in-one physical and chemical system. It’s installed in the foundations of new buildings or extensions, providing continuous protection against termites.
Flick can advise you on which treatment plan is best for your specific build, location, and budget. Termites don’t only attack older homes in Townsville. Build a pest management system into your new home for added peace of mind.
If you suspect you have termites, don’t disturb them. Call 1300 270 019 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.
