Termites

Protecting your property from termite infestations is a must in the Cairns regions. Termites (white ants) cause millions of dollars in damage annually to timber structures and homes across Australia and are particularly active in hot, wet areas such as Coastal Queensland. Greenhalgh Pest Services provides a range of termite control systems to safeguard your property as well as pre-inspection reports.

Termites inspections

Termites (also known as white ants) thrive in the warm Queensland climate. Populations of these destructive insects can grow rapidly undetected, eating away at the structural integrity of your home or business.

Having regular termite inspections is vital to uncover any termite infestations that have colonised in your residential or commercial property, before they can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Once detected, the problem can be treated rapidly by our Cairns termite specialists using non-toxic products and equipment.

Our termite specialists at Greenhalgh Pest Services, Cairns, have a comprehensive understanding of termite colonies and termite behaviour. We suggest 6-12 monthly inspections for optimal protection of your property.

PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS

Termites are often present in the structure of a property for a prolonged period of time before any warning signs become apparent. During this time a subterranean termite colony will gorge itself on the timber, becoming deeply embedded in the frame of the home or business, leaving only a thin outer casing disguising their presence.

For this reason, it is essential to hire the services of an experienced pest inspector before you invest in buying a residential or commercial property. If you don't have an expert undertake an extensive pre-purchase timber pest inspection before you buy, you run the risk of throwing away thousands of dollars in repairs, or even having to rebuild the entire structure.

We offer comprehensive and affordable pre-purchase timber pest inspections.

ALTIS RETICULATION SYSTEMS

At Greenhalgh Pest Services we believe prevention is better than a cure. This is why we use Altis Reticulation Systems to protect your home or business from termite infestations.

This patented system involves distributing pipes under the concrete slab and external perimeter of your property. The pipes have a chemical pumped into them which acts as a deterrent for termites. Once the chemical is released it lasts for a prolonged period of time, offering you peace of mind that your residential or commercial property is safeguarded against this pest.

CHEMICAL PREVENTATIVE BARRIERS

Chemical preventive barriersWood damage by termites – Greenhalgh Pest Services in Cairns, QLD
Our Cairns pest management technicians specialise in applying chemical preventative barriers around your home or business, stopping termites damaging its structural integrity. We utilise Termidor Residual Termiticide as the chemical for our preventative barrier, which has been tried and tested to efficiently kill termites trying to gain access to your residential or commercial property.

To lay the barrier, a zone is dug around the perimeter of your property and concrete slab areas are drilled, and the Termiticide is then applied. What makes our chemical preventative barrier so effective is that it doesn't repel termites - like other termite treatments. Instead, it is designed to remain undetected so foraging termites will die after coming into contact with this compound. The Termiticide is also transferred between termites, killing many from a single point of contact.
