Termite Inspection Tweed Heads

With termites active all year round on the Gold Coast, termite inspections are recommended at least once a year for homeowners in Tweed Heads. The termite inspection will detect the presence of termites and areas of termite damage, as well as conditions around the property or building issues that may make a termite attack more likely.

At Richards Pest Control we take our time to carry out a comprehensive termite inspection. Our experienced termite inspectors use thermal imaging cameras to assist with their investigations. You will get a detailed, multi-page report with photos, along with recommendations to keep your home protected from termites.

Termite Treatment Tweed Heads

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

New homes have termite protection built into the building during construction, but as the home ages it is often necessary to install a termite management system around the home to prevent termite attack. Older homes often have little in the way of termite protection and so definitely require a termite management system to provide protection from termites.

There are two types of termite management system, soil treatments using insecticides and termite monitoring and baiting systems. The choice of system depends greatly on the construction of the building. It is important to still have annual termite inspections with a termite management system in place in order to maintain any warranty.

Key Pests in Tweed Heads

Although termites are probably the number one pest, the other key pests in Tweed Heads include:

  • Spiders
  • Mosquitoes and biting midges
  • Ants
  • Rodents

Spiders are a problem from spring until autumn, we often get requests for a “spider spray”. Mosquitoes are a problem in the warmer months, especially in areas near the Tweed River. Ant can often be a problem for much of the year, including funnel ants which can ruin lawns. Rats and mice become a problem during winter when they often come inside buildings searching for warmth and shelter.
