Types of Termite Treatments

We use different methods to eliminate termites and stop more from coming inside your home. Some of our main treatments are:

Chemical Barriers

We spray chemicals around the base of your home to create a protective termite barrier they don’t want to cross. This stops them from entering.

Bait Stations

We put out bait for termite to eat. When they take it back to their nest, it kills off the whole colony.


For serious termite problems inside the walls, we seal up the home and release a special gas to kill them inside.

Soil Treatments

We inject a liquid chemical into the soil that spreads to create an underground barrier.

Physical Barriers

We install metal or mesh screens around pipe openings so termites can’t squeeze through.

Wood Treatments

We can treat infested wood with chemicals so termites won’t eat it anymore. This stops further damage.

Monitoring Systems

We setup monitoring stations around the property to alert us if termites are active near your home.

Reticulation Systems

We create an underground piping system that distributes termite-killing solution under and around your home.

No matter what stage of infestation you have, we have a safe and effective treatment to kill subterranean termites and prevent future attacks. Our experts know exactly how to remove them in your Adelaide home.

Signs Termites Are In Your Home

Watch out for these hints you may have termites:

  1. Mud Tunnels – Termite builds mud tubes to travel safely to wood sources. Check foundation walls for tunneling.
  2. Sagging Floors – If termite eats away floor joists, sections can sag or collapse when walked on.
  3. Power Issues – Termite chewing through wiring can cause frequent short circuits or power failures.
  4. Swarmers – Seeing groups of flying termites inside means a nest is somewhere in your home.
  5. Cracks in Walls – As they hollow out wood framing, drywall can crack from lack of support.
  6. Damaged Plants – Dry, dying sections of plants can indicate active termites feeding on roots and stems.

If you notice any of these signs, call us right away. We’ll inspect your home and confirm if these pests are present. The sooner we find them, the less damage they’ll do, and save thousands of dollars. Don’t delay, call today!

Did you know? Subterranean Termites are the most destructive species in Australia. They pose the most threat to timber structures.

Common Termite Species in Adelaide

Common Termite Species in Adelaide

There are over 300 species of termites across Australia. But in the Adelaide area, the main one that attacks homes and buildings is:

Coptotermes – This group builds underground colonies and loves feeding on wood structures. They don’t build visible mounds above ground. So without an expert inspection, they can feast unseen on the framing of your home for years.

Two other species sometimes found in Adelaide that also damage wood are:

  • Coptotermes lacteus
  • Coptotermes frenchi

The Coptotermes group is considered the #1 termite pest in South Australian homes. Their colonies can grow quite large with up to 2 million members. A termite colony this size can consume over 1,000 lbs of wood annually!

This is why swift treatment is essential the moment you detect them. Call us for an inspection so we can identify the exact species infesting your home. Then we can target that species with proven control methods.

Fun Fact: Termites have existed for about 130 million years. They were on Earth eating wood since dinosaur times. These bugs are ancient and have had ages to become good at damaging buildings and homes.

Top Termite-Killing Chemicals

There are a handful of effective chemicals we use in our effective termite treatments. Some of the best liquid solutions for killing them inside wood and soil are:

  • Chlorpyrifos – This insecticide disrupts the nervous system of termites so they stop moving and die within a day. It continues working for many years inside wall framing.
  • Lindane – A concentrated organochlorine that is toxic to termites. It’s applied as a soil treatment around the home’s foundation.
  • Imidacloprid – Applied in the soil, this creates an underground chemical barrier that prohibits termite from being able to dig or build tunnels close to your home.
  • Boric Acid – A low toxicity mineral powder that destroys a termite’s digestive system when ingested, causing death within days. Also prevents them from reproducing properly.
  • Orange Oil – Extracted from orange peels, d-limonene vapors penetrate wood and suffocate termites. Also used to repel ants, spiders, and cockroaches.

What is the best way to prevent termites?

Termites thrive in wet conditions. Decrease moisture at your home so as not to attract them. Quickly repair any leaks from irrigation lines or indoor piping. Also keep mulch and wood at least 1 foot from your home’s foundation. Proper drainage and sloping the soil away from your house also helps keep things dry. By reducing dampness, you make your place far less likely to suffer a termite infestation.

How Much Does Termite Treatments Cost?

Termite treatment costs typically range from $300 up to $3,500. The exact price depends on the extent of infestation and type of service needed to eliminate the entire colony and prevent future termite attacks. Simple baits or barriers for minor cases are cheaper. Major structural fumigation work for heavy infestations costs more.
