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:
- 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.
