We carry out termite inspections; also referred to as pest inspections. The pest inspection is a thorough visual inspection of the residential or commercial structure to determine whether there are active termites on site or if there are termite workings or damage which would indicate that there has previously been termites.
Termite Inspections are a must!
If there is no termite management system installed or if the current system is deemed to be inadequate our Termite Manager will recommend and advise on the best suited termite management system. All the above will be documented in an electronic report with pictures supporting the findings. The pest inspection report will also include any conditions in and around the property that are conducive to termite attack as well as recommendations to reduce termite pressure on the building. The termite inspection report will advise how frequently the termite inspections should be carried out; generally this would be annually, however certain factors like construction design, surrounding environmental pressures and conducive conditions can influence the need for more regular inspections.
Regular termite inspections are a necessity in protecting timbers from termite attack! The Australian subterranean termites, also known as white ants are the most destructive termites in the world. Termites attack your home when a nest matures near you. No property is safe from termites, your home provides the termites with a food source and natural shelter. Concrete slabs are not full-proof as termites can gain access through cracks in the slab or the termites build mud tunnels to gain access to above ground timbers. Termites remain hidden in timbers which make them very difficult to notice; they excavate the timber and can cause extensive damage before you realise they are there. Termites are rife in Queensland and statistically one in three buildings are at risk of termite attack.
- Visual inspection complemented, if required, with the use of a Thermal Imaging Camera and/or a Termatrac T3i, this is a multi-function device with:
- Motion Detection Radar – using an ultrasonic radar this can accurately detect termites through most building materials
- Moisture Sensor – accurately records the concentrated presence of moisture identifying high risk areas
- Thermal Sensor – accurately detects the heat generated by termites within building structures
- Tapping of skirting boards & door jambs
- Inspect roof voids
- Inspect garden areas
Below is a listing of a few maintenance tips/advice to help protect your home against termites;
- ensure the edge of your concrete slab is always exposed and not covered by soil or vegetation or pathways so as not to allow for concealed entry by termites
- ensure all overflow pipes from hot water services and aircon units are directed into drains
- ensure any leaks and poor drainage is repaired
- remove or re-arrange unnecessary debris/materials against buildings or fences and any stored timber in direct contact with soil
- improve poor ventilation
Adhering to the above measures can reduce conditions conducive to termite attack and help minimise the risk of termite infestation.
What people say about us
We achieve great results with our treatments with many happy customers,
below are some feedback / comments from our customers
Thank you to Belinda and Deano. I was using an alternate service and we ended up with termites. I rang Top Choice Pest Control and Deano came that day, located the source, treated them and then followed up in the following weeks. Termites all gone and we haven’t seen any other pests too. Great service and great price!
Deano did our pest control and was very friendly and thorough. He was flexible in the time that he could carry out the pest control as I had limited time as I work long hours. Deano was very friendly yet professional and explained what he was doing. Since my pest control has been carried out we have not seen let alone had any issues with cockroaches, ants or any other bugs. I have and would recommend them to friends and family. Thanks again guys.
Belinda and her husband were very quick in communicating with me to provide information and a quote, and were very helpful when trying to organise an inspection and treatment. Best price I found in the area. I even got a phone call after the treatment to explain the report in details for me. Thank you! Would recommend this company to others.
We approached Top Choice Pest Control to do something a bit out of the ordinary for us. We needed our boat inspected for termites for import purposes with DAFF. This was something unfamiliar to them but they definitely stepped up to the plate. Belinda put in more than 100% effort to find out everything that was going to be required for a successful report. She went above and beyond her job even the DAFF employees were very impressed. Top Choice came out to our vessel and did a thorough and skilled search and test of the boat, us and DAFF were very impressed with its work. We would highly and definitely recommend TOP CHOICE PEST CONTROL.
Thank you Deano for your professional service and the efficient manner in which you carried out the Pest Control and Termite Inspection on my home. I will continue being a regular customer from now on and I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family members who also need Pest Control Services
Top Choice Pest Control was brilliant with helping my mum with her pest problem I would say they did an amazing job even went above and beyond their job title to help her with the situation to help it get solved and for that I am so greatfull for.
I would like to thank Deano and his team for the great work they have done at our place. My husband and I have really appreciated making business with them. They tick all the boxes; they are professional, punctual, dedicated, hard workers, accurate, thorough, careful, and always concerned with the client’s satisfaction. To that I would like to add their kindness, patience and cheerfulness. I would highly recommend Deano and his team from Kawana Top Choice Pest Control. Greatly satisfied,
I am extremely impressed with Top Choice Pest Control. Deano located the nest and entry points very quickly and prevented a major infestation continuing dead in its tracks. He conducted himself in a very professional manner and I found him to be completely honest in his appraisal of the infestation. I was very pleased with the cost of the treatment which was less than I expected but was what was quoted. The post-treatment inspections put my mind at ease and I will refer Top Choice as the number 1 Termite and Pest Control company I have ever dealt with. My builder father was on site during the treatment and was so impressed with the feedback and explanations from Deeno that he has already referred clients to Top Choice.
We have been using Kawana’s Top Choice Pest Control for over 3 years now. we have used them for Pest inspections and pest control. Belinda and Deano are a great team! Deano is very professional and thorough – I wouldn’t use anyone else on the Sunshine Coast.
What a great service from Top Choice Pest Control. They’ve taken care of our homes for over 8 years and we’ve always been very happy. They are just lovely people who go the extra mile to help keep your home safe from pests. Can highly recommend the whole team. If you’re looking for a pest company who really does care about monitoring your home for pest management, then Top Choice are the business to choose for sure.
The team at Top Choice have been doing our pest management for over 5 years and they always accommodate us every time. They are professional and understanding to our needs having 3 dogs. We recently have rented out our property and they went above and beyond due to the fact we had furniture stored in our garage. Nothing is a drama and their service is great.
We have used Top Choice Pest Control for 7 years now and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. Other than great service and affordable prices, the guys are so professional and are always happy to answer any questions I’ve had. I have a dog that is allergic to fleas and every year we get a full flea service done with our general pest control and our dog has never had a problem since. They go above and beyond to make sure we are happy with their service.
