Termite Inspection Helensvale

At Richards Pest Control we use thermal imaging cameras with all our termite inspections, to make sure we leave no stone unturned when inspecting your home for termites.

You will receive a comprehensive, multi-page report which will detail any termite activity, areas of termite damage and conditions on the property that may make a termite attack more likely. Complete with accompanying photographs we will also provide recommendations on how to minimise the risks of a termite attack in the future.

With termites capable of causing significant damage in as little as 6 months, annual termite inspections are essential for homeowners in Helensvale. We will provide annual reminders so you don’t forget!

Termite Treatment Helensvale

Richards Pest Control guarantee termite elimination and our treatments provide lasting protection from termite attack.

There are two types of termite management system or termite treatment that provides long lasting protection for buildings: insecticide applied to the soil around and under the building or the installation of a termite baiting system around the property.

The best system for your situation largely depends on the building’s construction and soil type on the property. Once the system is installed, it remains essential to conduct annual termite inspections to maintain any warranties and ensure that the integrity of the system is not compromised.
