Termite Inspection Mudgeeraba

Mudgeeraba is a termite hotspot with warm, humid conditions that are ideal for termites. The surrounding bush is host to a ready supply of new termite queens looking to start a new nest.

Termites can cause substantial damage in as little as 6 months. Mudgeeraba property owners are well-advised to schedule termite inspections at least once a year. These inspections will detect the presence of termites, areas of termite damage, and conditions around the property that would increase the likelihood of termite attacks.

Thermal imaging cameras are used by the experienced termite inspectors at Richards Pest Control. This means you get an exhaustive termite inspection, complete with a multi-page report containing detailed information and photos. You will also receive professional recommendations to help protect your property from termites.

Termite Treatment Mudgeeraba

Termite treatment from Richards Pest Control guarantees termite elimination, as well as lasting protection from termite attack.

Newer homes have a level of termite protection built in during construction but over the years, this protection can become unreliable. The property would then have insufficient termite protection like many older homes in Mudgeeraba. To prevent termite attack, it would be advisable to install a termite management system around the building perimeter.

Termite management systems are available in two forms:

  • Termiticide treatments to the soil around (and under) the building
  • Termite monitoring and baiting system installed around the building perimeter

The best system for your property would be determined based on the building’s construction and the soil composition at your property. Once installed, annual termite inspections are essential to check the system has not been compromised and in order to maintain a warranty.

Common Pests in Mudgeeraba

Termites are the number one concern for property owners in Mudgeeraba. Infestations have been recorded in the Gold Coast Hinterland of the great northern termite (which is normally only found in the tropical north). This species is twice the size of regular termites and they can demolish a home in as little as 6 months!

Other common pests include:

Spiders are often a problem between Spring and Autumn and we receive many calls for spider sprays to keep them at bay.

Ants are also a major pest inside and outside the home. In particular, funnel ants can cause problems in lawns. Mudgeeraba is included in fire ant biosecurity zoning.

Mosquitoes are also are a problem, especially near the creeks. Rodents become a problem during winter when they enter buildings in search of warmth and shelter.
