Gold Coast Termite Treatments
Remove active termite infestations with effective, environmentally safe treatments.
If your home has live termites, you need to book a termite treatment as soon as possible.
The two main species of termites in south-east Queensland (coptotermes acinaciformis and coptotermes lacteus) are aggressive eaters, and can cause significant structural damage to buildings in just six months.
Ideally, your termite treatment will be:
- Effective. If the colony (the source of the termites coming into your house) isn’t destroyed, the termites will return in a few months.
- Safe. Avoid treatments that are potentially toxic to your household and pets.
- Environmentally friendly. Termite treatments should target termites and their colonies, not completely poison the soil around your home.
We use a range of sprays, dusts, and baits to eradicate live infestations. If the colony is located elsewhere on your property – such as near a fence post, in a garden, or in a tree – we’ll do our best to destroy it while minimising the impact to your landscape.

Gold Coast Termite PROTECTION
Safeguard your property with the latest technology.
Termite protection systems are a series of measures taken to prevent termites from entering your home. By investing in a specialist-installed system, you’ll minimise the risk of infestations and potentially save tens of thousands of dollars.
We offer three main classes of termite protection:
- Chemical barriers. Chemical barriers can repel or kill termites, and can often be topped up with a hands-off reticulation system, minimising maintenance.
- Physical barriers. Physical barriers can include plastic or steel mesh around key entry points into your home, including around piping. Our preferred provider of termite mesh is Termimesh.
- Baits and traps. Baits and traps can help intercept and kill termites approaching your house, but they’re not a perfect defence system; ideally, they should be combined with other forms of protection for maximum effectiveness.
As part of your protection system installation, we’ll survey your property and identify any vulnerabilities, such as cracks in concrete, hazardous timber or mulch piles, and soil-to-wood contact around buildings. Once we’ve conducted our inspection, we’ll provide you with recommendations and a quote.
Our termite protection options include:
Termidor chemical barriers
Plastic, concrete, and Termimesh barriers
Baits and traps

Termite Protection for New Homes
If you’re thinking about building a new home, it’s essential to make sure that your investment is protected from termites – especially in Queensland.
Your builders are required under state law to implement certain termite protection systems, but it’s a good idea to fully explore your protection options. There are many different ways to go about protecting a new home from termites, including:
- Treating the layer of soil underneath the building with termiticide
- Implementing a chemical barrier around the foundation
- Using termite-resistant framing
- Installing termite shields and defensive particle barriers around the foundation
It’s a good idea to talk with a termite expert at some point during the construction process. Finding the right termite protection is a balance between budget, effectiveness, and environmental factors, and an accredited specialist can mean the difference between spending thousands on an ineffective system and keeping your property safe for life.

Termite Protection for Concrete Slabs
Monolithic concrete slabs are considered one of the most effective termite management systems. Because they’re made of solid concrete, termites can’t travel directly from the soil into your house, significantly reducing infestation risk.
It’s important to understand, though, that concrete slabs aren’t impenetrable. Cracks and piping are two access routes that termites can use to travel through the concrete, which is why it’s important to have other protection mechanisms, like:
- Stainless steel mesh under the slab or around its perimeter
- Graded stone under the slab or around its perimeter
- Environmentally safe chemical barriers topped up with a reticulation system
Need help implementing chemical barriers? Not sure if your concrete slab could be cracked or damaged?

Termite Protection Requirements in Queensland
In Queensland, all new buildings are required by law to have termite protection systems in place that are designed to resist infestation for up to 50 years. The following parts of buildings also need to be chemically treated or made out of termite-resistant materials:
- Roof and floor framing (structural elements)
- Door jambs
- Window frames and reveals
- Architraves and skirting
If you’re building a new house in Queensland, your builders will need to meet these requirements in order to have your structure approved.
