Lee from Richards Pest control provided me with great communication via email including very informative quote, satisfactory answers to my questions asked as well as courtesy reminder via email and SMS. Hayden from Richards Pest control is a nice and hardworking gentleman who delivered fabulous pest control service in our house, including general pest treatment, termite inspection and rodent inspection and baiting. Hayden went into detail and answered all questions I asked and advised me of the issues he identified inside and outside of our house which can potentially attract termites and other pests and his proposed solution to fix up those issues. Moreover, Hayden helped us solved the mystery in our garage, which turned out to be Gecko poop rather than rodent droppings. Overall speaking, great service from Richards Pest control, punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient professionals. I highly recommend this pest control company.

Brett arrived on time. He is courteous, well spoken and to explain any questions I had and checked out any troublesome areas I mentioned. Nothing was a problem to him.

Lee and Team are so thorough and ultra professional in everything they do. Their after care service was second to none - took 30 minutes out of their day to explain termite barrier treatment options and cost to us. Reviewed another company’s work and responded with a comprehensive email after work hours to give us confidence with house purchase. Would definitely recommend! Would recommend

Termite Inspection Nerang

Termites are active all year round on the Gold Coats and can cause significant damage in as little as 6 months. As such, an annual termite inspections are the minimum action homeowners in Nerang should take to make sure their home is not under termite attack. However, a termite treatment is required to provide long term protection from termites.

At Richards Pest Control we use thermal imaging cameras on all inspections to help our experienced termite inspections to identify any areas of concern. You will receive a comprehensive, multi-page report complete with accompanying photographs, listing any areas of termite activity, termite damage and conducive conditions that may make a termite attack more likely. In addition we will provide tailored recommendations aimed at safeguarding your property against termite attack.

Termite Treatment Nerang

If you have active termite in your property, Richards Pest Control guarantee termite elimination. Our treatments also provide lasting protection from termite attack.

Whether you have a new home or an older home, termites don’t care! If there’s wood around they will find it! Although many homes (even old ones) have some termite protection built it, it is never enough and they will eventually find their way in. That’s why it’s important to install a termite management system around (and under) to help prevent termite attack and ensure long-term protection.

There are two types of termite management system: insecticides treatments to the soil or the installation of a termite baiting system. The selection of the appropriate system largely depends on the building’s construction and the soil type around the property. However, even with a termite management system in place, it remains essential to conduct annual termite inspections to maintain the warranties and make sure the system hasn’t been compromised by gardening or landscaping activities.

Key Pests in Nerang

In addition to the ever-present threat of termites, the other key pests in Nerang include:

With plenty of insects for food, spiders are a common problem during the warmer months – our “spider sprays” are very popular. With plenty of rainfall each year and the Nerang River, mosquitoes also tend to be a common problem from spring to autumn. In winter, rodents also become a problem as they move indoors, searching for warmth and shelter.
