Pest and Termite Control In Tropical Areas

by Luke Taylor on January 22, 2014

Let me tell you a story that will prompt you to check out pest control if you live in warm climate like the Gold Coast in South East Queensland.

The other evening I was sound asleep, most likely dreaming about cupcakes or something, when I felt a little tickle on my face. Thinking it was merely the wind blowing the tassels on my blanket, I carelessly brushed it away. That’s when it happened! I felt 8 long, hairy legs spread around my face and with the way I screamed I was lucky it didn’t crawl into my mouth.

If you have a pest problem it’s time to poach that cockroach and dis-invite the termite. DIY methods are only useful temporarily however, if you want long term results, i.e. a pest free home, you really do need to call in a professional pest control team

One of the main pest threats in sub tropical and tropical regions is the termite, also known by some as a white ant.

To put it in perspective for you, 1 out of 3 houses on the Gold Coast, have actually had or will have termites; I’m guessing those odds don’t make you feel real comfortable, especially if you are a property owner.

Termites can be detected utilising a thermal imaging camera. Personally, I think this modern technology is positively brilliant. It causes no damage to your house; it just simply identifies heat patterns and can find termites that the human eye might miss.

For residents of the Gold Coast, pest control is as easy as calling The Pest Company on;
