Termite Treatments

Termite control and termite management

After a comprehensive termite inspection of your home, we will recommend the best preventative measures and treatment options to help protect your biggest investment from termite infestations. Our treatment techniques are based on your home’s specific construction type because we understand that every home is unique.

Based on the layout of your home and the degree of termite infestation, we will identify the most suitable professional service to prevent termites, address your termite problems and protect structures.

Termites are attracted to high humidity, warm, damp areas where there’s plenty of exposed wood. If you find live termites in your home, you should contact Envirotechnics immediately for a termite inspection and pest control services.

Our fully qualified staff offer great service and a broad range of long term removal options which adhere to all relevant Australian Standards.

Termite management systems

At Envirotechnics we always offer more than one solution!

Our termite control services include:

  • Installation of termite management systems is for existing homes and newly built homes
  • Termite monitoring stations are placed in strategic at-risk locations around your home to determine termite activity
  • Once termite activity is detected, our fully qualified team will install termite baits in the monitoring station. Termites then ingest the termite baits and share it with other termites. This baiting system deals with the source of the problem and achieves colony elimination
  • Ongoing termite inspections are recommended at a minimum annually or more frequently in high risk areas. This service is supported by a termite inspection report so you feel in control over your property and pest problems
  • Re-treatment (if necessary) to treat termites. Other pest control treatments are also available.

Termite damage

Worker termites cause more damage to homes than fires, floods and storms combined. One in five homes is affected by termite damage and the structural damage is generally not covered by household insurance, so the cost of any repair is a burden for the property or home owner. A concrete slab will not protect your property from live termites.

It’s important to have a termite management plan, conduct regular termite inspections and implement termite treatments and termite control services at the first sign of a termite colony or mud tubes. Mud tubes are tunnel-like structures built by subterranean termites which connect the entire colony in the soil to food sources (such as accessible timbers and exposed wood). If wood sounds hollow when you tap on it, this may also be a sign of a termite infestation. You should organise a termite inspection as soon as possible.

There is no better way to reduce and prevent termites than with a customised home termite treatment plan from Envirotechnics.


Q1. When are termites most active
Termites are active all year round. In Spring & Summer they release colonising flies to create more colonies.
Q2. What do termites like to eat
Termites love to munch on cellulose, which is an organic compound found in cotton fibres, papers, cardboard and is a major component in wood. Termites break cellulose down into sugar, which they use as fuel.
Q3. What are signs of a termite problem

Mud tubes
This is the most common signs of termite infestation. Termite mud working looks like miniature tubes and are often made from dirt or termite droppings. These mud tubes allow for termites to travel across exposed terrain to creep into your home.

Power at your house repeatedly short circuits
Termites are often attracted to warmth that can be found behind walls near electrical fittings. If you start to notice short circuits are regular occurrence at your place, termites might be the reason why. To confirm this, check your electrical fittings and PowerPoints. If you spot a build-up of damp mud or soil, you might have a termite problem.

Floor or ceiling damage
Termites feed on anything that crosses their path causing large damage to structural integrity such as skirting boards, ceiling beams etc. If you notice cracks, sags or blisters to any surface, there is a high possibility that termites are present.

Q4. How can I reduce the risk of a termite’s infestation
  • Store wood or cellulose material in a dry, elevated space, safely off the ground
  • Fix moisture problems in bathrooms
  • Have a professional annual termite inspection
  • Don’t put mulch, wood debris, scrap timber, sawdust, firewood close to your home, especially near foundations
  • Don’t allow leaves to accumulate in gutters and drains
