How a Termite Treatment works – First step is to engage a professional Termite expert to complete a thorough Termite Inspection on the property and find all affected areas as termites can and will travel well beneath the ground and inside walls and floors. From here the decision can be made to select the best suitable Termite protection program that will suit your property.
Eradicating Termites from any Gold Coast Property is best completed by a Licensed and experienced Technician as DIY treatments will only cost you more.
The direct application of the licensed non repellent chemical is best applied directly to the live Termites with minimum disturbance.
When treating live Termites, the trained technician ensures the correct amount of chemical is applied directly into the Termite workings, treating as many live termites as possible without too much disturbance.
Understanding construction, identifying the type of termite species found and the location of the termites plays a critical part in the eradication program.
Prior disturbance of live termites can lead to an application failure, the exact reason a professional technician is required.

Subterranean termites are the most common of the wood destroying insects in Australia. The most effective termite treatments for these insects may include a range of systems or products that suit your property like, the use of termite monitoring & Baiting systems, repellent barriers and non-repellent barriers / treated zones.
Termite treatments on most occasions are treated with a non repellent termiticide like Termidor and foaming agent delivered by a professional foaming machine.
Exterra Interception and Baiting System – Worker termites eat these baits as they are foraging and take them back to the colony where they provide food for the colony. The bait will eventually eliminate the termite nest.
How Does The Exterra Baiting System Work?
If an Exterra Baiting System has been installed to protect your home, the following steps are taken;
- We check the Exterra Bait Stations every 2 months
- If live termite activity is found…
- We apply the termite bait
- We then return to Re-check in 4 weeks time
- Check to see if the Termite colony is eliminated
Photo demonstrates that termites have consumed 70% of the bait applied after a termite infestation was discovered in a monitoring station.

Termite Treatment Option for Gold Coast Homeowners
Repellent barriers are liquid termiticides placed in a trench surrounding the perimeter of the home. Once the liquid is applied with the soil the trench is refilled creating the barrier. Once the barrier is installed Worker termites are repelled by the Termite barrier preventing termites moving through the treated area to damage to the home. With repellent barriers, any active termites should be treated first with a non repellent termiticide prior the installation to eradicate the Colony first and foremost.
While Termite chemical barriers can provide an effective means of protecting the home, they must be monitored with at least an annual Inspection to ensure there is not a breach in the barrier. For example, during the process of landscaping, soil may be placed over the barrier creating a bridge by which the termites are able to access the home. In addition, areas such as concrete porches or patios make establishing the barrier more difficult and alternative solutions maybe required.
If you decide on any renovation work on the home like extensions, new gardens, new paths or Landscaping be Sure to Call Gold Coast Termite Protection on 07 5576 2602 as these types of works can damage the barrier.
Non-repellent termite treatment involves establishing a barrier/ Treated Zone around the structure. Unlike a repellent barrier the Termiticide used to create the barrier is not detectable by the worker termites. As termites come in contact with the termiticide like Termidor or they ingest material that has been treated with Termidor, they will eventually die.
If you are concerned about termites and the potential damage they can do to your home, we will recommend the treatment that will best protect your property. We start by determining if you currently have a termite problem and the type of termites causing the problem. We will then recommend the best option to protect the property.
