Building and Pest Inspection Gold Coast Report found Termites?

Termite Mud Lead found in ceiling by our Sound Building and Pest Inspection Gold Coast Team

Termite Mud Lead found by our Building and Pest Inspection Gold Coast Team. Will require hard bristle broom to remove mud from timber.

In most Building and Pest Inspection Gold Coast jobs we will either find active Termites or past Termite activity.

As scary as that sounds your Building and Pest Inspection Gold Coast Report will give you all the options available to perspective buyers and it’s not always a walk away. Our experience shows us that Termite activity is vast along the eastern sea board and most houses within their life time will have to deal with Termites. As aggressive and damaging as some specie of Termites can be, they them self are quite weak and fragile. Needing to be in a moist environment to survive, Termites build mud leads (mud tunnels) made up of saliva, dirt and stool to traveling around the house. This protects them from the elements and predators.

Active Termites Found

If active Termites are found then the Termite Treatment can either be a

  • Remedial treatment which is direct chemical foaming or dusting to the Termites
  • Termite baiting system which draws Termites to each station and poisons them.

Both treatments are equally effective but it comes down to which will suit your property type and access to the live termites.

Previous Termite Activity

If previous activity or Termite Damage is found then it’s best to install a Termite Barrier to help protect the house from Termites coming back. We then advise to repair damage timbers and clean away all Termite mud leads. The reason we ask that all Termite leads are cleaned up is that they remain around the house, being highways and giving other Termites quick direct access to parts of the house.

Termites are normally hidden from the naked eye and that’s why our Building and Pest Inspection Gold Coast Teams carry State-of-the-Art equipment to help assist with the investigation. Termites eat Timber from the inside out so by the time you can see their damage it’s likely that it will be side spread.
