Termite Protection Brisbane | 4 Actions to Help Prevent the Pests

Having termite protection measures in place for your Brisbane property could help to prevent an attack and save you plenty of stress and money in the future. 

At All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control we are highly skilled at protecting residences and commercial premises from termite infestations. In fact, we’ve been ridding properties of the destructive pests for more than a decade. 

We explain more about actions which may help to reduce the chance of the pests inhabiting your Brisbane block below.  

How To Protect Your Brisbane Home From Termites 

They say prevention is better than a cure and the same is true about termites. It is far easier – and much less costly – to protect your home from them than to deal with the consequences of an infestation. 

So, how can you prevent your home from these harmful timber pests? 

Here are four (4) courses of action which may assist with minimising the risks of an infestation:  

  1. Have a Termite Reticulation System installed 

A termite reticulation system consists of chemical pipe positioned along the home’s perimeter. Pesticide is expelled though perforated holes in the pipework. It’s best to install these systems before any concrete slabs are laid.

2. Install baiting stations 

Bait is positioned inside stations which can be placed above or below ground.  

The intention is to attract termites and have them feed on the insecticide, before they transport it back to the nest to affect other termites. 

3. Schedule more frequent termite inspections 

While we recommend yearly assessments, you may opt to have a qualified inspector visit more regularly, for example half-yearly or even quarterly, if your Brisbane property is prone to termite attacks. 

4. Be vigilant and checking for signs of activity 

The sooner you spot a problem, the faster it can be dealt with by a professional.  

One of the best ways to do this is to keep an eye out for evidence of termites, like timber damage or mud tubing.  

It’s important to note that if a termite problem has been uncovered, a tailored treatment management plan will be developed by the professionals at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control before any protective measures are put in place.

Winter Pest Control Tips

Winter Pest Control Tips

In this blog, the team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control shares some Winter pest control tips – because no one likes to have unwanted house guests at any time of the year.

While creepy crawlies love the warmer Queensland weather, it doesn’t mean they disappear when the temperature drops.

In fact, they may have moved inside your home, where they’re residing in cracks and crevasses as they seek warmth and shelter.

Winter Pest Control Tips

A lot of our customers have pest treatments carried out at their homes religiously every six months to keep the pests at bay.

We understand that pest control might not be on the top of your to-do list during Winter, but it can be a good idea to rid your home of creepy crawlies before Summer (when they make the most of those prime breeding conditions).

Plus, if you can prevent the pests from becoming a problem when its cooler, you’ll avoid the Summer pest treatment rush.

Here are some other tips to reduce your chances of sharing your home with vermin.

  1. Take your bins out regularly: If you empty your bins every day and take the rubbish outside, you’ll be removing possible food sources for pests.
  2. Keep clutter to a minimum: Pests love to make themselves comfortable in storage areas which aren’t cleaned or accessed regularly. It is a good idea not to hold onto paper clutter, where possible, and turn over other cupboards frequently.   
  3. Ensure doors to outside are closed: Keeping doors closed to your patio or outdoor areas can prevent pests – especially rodents and spiders – from sneaking inside, because once they’re inside they might not want to leave!
  4. Seal any gaps:  Many pests are tiny and will do what they can to weasel their way into the warmth and comfort of your home. Pests can also slip inside through broken windows and fly screens – so if you’ve been putting off any repair jobs, now’s the time to do them!
  5. Trim trees and shrubs near your home: This will give the pests fewer places to hide, and when they are around you’ll be more likely to see them.
