Protect Your Assets
from Termite Attack
Bruin Pest Management takes Termite Control in Brisbane seriously
What are Termites?
Termites are subterranean insects who are usually mistakenly referred to as “white ants”, when in fact they are more closely related to cockroaches.
They have a chewing mouth part (mandibles) which the workers use to feed on cellulose found in timber.
Termites live in colones, with several different castes, workers, soldiers, king and a queen each having a particular set of structures and functions related to the survival and maintenance of the colony.
Termites are very common in Brisbane and South East Queensland due to the climate been advantageous to the humid conditions termites require.
Termites are destructive to man made, particularly timber dwellings which can cause major structural damage. Termites cause more damage to Australian homes than fire, food, storms, tempest combined.
Generally Home or building insurance will not cover termite damage.
What options for Termite Protection are there?
Effective subterranean Termite Control is a scientific process and can be achieved in a number of ways.
Bruin Pest Management offer:
Termite Baiting and Monitoring System using Exterra® or Sentricon® AlwaysActive™
Termite Baiting involves installing discreet Termite bait stations in a perimeter around your home which will draw the Termites into them to allow for the successful application of bait. This process is the most effective in colony control of subterranean termites and provides the best protection. Termite Baiting Systems do not use any dangerous chemicals and are environmentally safe to wildlife and other insects. Bruin Pest Management offers a complete Management Plan for every home with ongoing visits to monitor your termite stations and look out for conditions conducive to termite attack on your property.
Termite Chemical Treated Zone using Termiticides such as Termidor®HE
Chemical treatments involve trenching around your home to apply a saturation of termiticide to the perimeter at the footing of your slab or around the stumps. When using a non-repellent active ingredient for this process The Termites do not even know they are in contact with the deadly termiticide which is then taken back to the nest, causing elimination of the colony.
How much do Termite Management Systems Cost?
An industry leading Termite Management System, either a Baiting and Monitoring System or Termiticide Chemical Treatment Zone which has been installed in accordance with Australian Standard AS3660.2 is the only sure way of keeping your home protected from Termite Infestation. A one-off treatment to Termite activity in a home or garden should cost in the range of $200 to $900 depending on circumstances. A full Management System for an averaged sized Australian House should cost in the range of $2500 to $4000 with a Manufacturer or Insurer backed-warranty.
