- Gold Coast Pest Services with "The Bug Doctor"
Gold Coast Pest Services have teamed up with "The Bug Doctor" (Dr. Phil Ridley), to provide a series of Gold Coast termite videos to explain more about termites, the damage they can do and important information about termite inspections and termite treatments, helping you understand more about this key pest and how to protect your home.
What's the difference between termites and ants?
Although termites are often called "white ants", they aren't ants at all. Obviously, it's important to know what a termite looks like, as they cause all the damage...
The termite life-cycle
Knowing a bit about the termite life cycle helps understand how they become a problem and why they may attack your home...
Why protect your home from termites?
Most homeowners ignore the risks of termite attack, despite the fact a termite attack is more likely than fire, flood or other natural disaster. An termite attack is not covered by your home insurance!
Signs of a termite infestation
Even if you have regular professional termite inspections, it's always useful to know the signs of a potential termite attack. If you spot any of these signs, you should contact us immediately.
What's involved in a termite inspection?
With some companies offering free "termite checks" and other companies doing a "comprehensive" termite inspection in less than 30 minutes, it's important to know what's involved in a termite inspection. If your inspector is not taking their time to complete the actions in this video, you aren't saving money by going with a free or cheap option, you're actually wasting your money, but more importantly, putting your house at risk!
The termite treatment process
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a termite attack, it's important to know what involved in a proper termite treatment. There is a standard process set down by the industry and Australian Standards, which all good pest control companies will follow.
