TPC Property Services found a termite nest (species: microcerotermes) at a property inspection at Upper Coomera today.
Do you think that just because you live in an exclusive neighbourhood that you are exempt from termite attack?
Here’s a photo I took today of live termite activity in a concrete exterra station in a property in Hedges Ave, Mermaid Beach, Gold Coast, Qld
Luckily for these home owners they had exterra termite bait stations installed some time ago and the termites were attracted to the bait station and not their home.

The video below clearly shows a tremendous amount of live termite activity in an exterra termite bait station protecting a home in Ben Lomond Drive, Highland Park on the Gold Coast
Better the termites are eating the bait in the exterra station than eating the home of the Highland Park locals!
