Understanding All Things Termites
These wood-eaters may be tiny and squishy, but they can do thousands of dollars in damage to your home’s timber structures in a matter of months – often undetected under the surface of your home.
Their pale, soft bodies need moisture to survive, which is why during a routine pest inspection we are looking for evidence of moist areas in and around your home and business premises. On inspection of any moist areas, a thorough inspection is carried out in the adjacent areas for any possible termite leads.
Fortunately, our region has a great climate however our warm weather and high rainfall are also great conditions for termite activity. Termites infest and cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home and business, which is often your greatest asset. Insurance policies will not cover damage caused by Termites.
Did you know, that we can offer an array of extended warranties that will cover for any termite damage after the installation of termite prevention systems (provided regular termite inspections are carried out. Some other conditions may apply, but do not hesitate to contact us to discuss further).
Termites can infest your home or business at anytime, that is why it is important to have an annual inspection.
If you think you have active Termites or White Ants as they are commonly referred to, we recommend YOU DO NOT DISTURB THEM.
This is important for a couple of reasons: If you disturb them, they may abandon those workings and head to another part of your home which could cause more damage; Undisturbed Termites are also easier for us to assess and determine the appropriate method of removal, elimination and protection for your home.

Termite Baiting Systems
REMOVE SOURCES OF MOISTURE AROUND THE HOME
The subterranean termite is the biggest threat to your home. They require moisture to thrive and survive. By eliminating moisture around your home, this will help you avoid termites taking up residence in your home. Be sure to minimise overflows from hot water units, rainwater tanks and air-conditioning units. Ensure water has a natural flow away from the house. Clean gutters and repair broken downpipes.
CLEAN UP AROUND THE HOUSE
There are many things you can do to minimise food sources for termites. Remove stored timber from under the home. Remove firewood or stacked timber supplies away from the house and store in well ventilated areas. Clean up any old damp tree logs and rotting fences.
HOME CONSTRUCTION DESIGN
For homes on a concealed slab edge, termites can gain access into your home via poorly sealed pipe penetrations, cracks in the slab or the brick/cladding interface. For homes where timber is in direct contact with the ground, termites will be able to directly access the internal structures of the home. By being aware of termite entry points, homeowners can be proactive to eradicate invasion entry points.
Suncoast Pest Solutions use chemical or physical barriers and baits to rid your home of these nasty creatures, depending on your home’s location and construction. Once we’re done, we check regularly to make sure they never return. You can trust Suncoast Pest Solutions will talk you through all of your options.
VENTILATE SUBFLOORS AND ROOF SPACES
Ensure there is adequate air flow to subfloors and roof spaces. Avoid blocking ventilation grills. Clean up and remove any potential debris that termites can use as a feeding ground or a source to retain unnecessary moisture. Ensure weep holes are left open and are not accidentally blocked during the construction phase or later obstructed with garden beds or debris.
