Our Termite Treatment Process

All our termite treatments are carried out according to Australian Standards 3660.2.

The treatment follows 4 key steps:
  1. Carry out a comprehensive termite inspection
  2. Propose and agree a termite treatment plan based on the inspection results
  3. Eliminate active termites from the building
  4. Install a termite management system to protect the home into the future
In making termite treatment recommendations, we take into account the following:
  • Termite species present and level of infestation
  • Building construction type and any issues
  • Soil types
  • Environmental factors
  • Any cost considerations
  • Personal preferences

Unlike some other firms which push only one type of treatment, Rebel Pest Professionals are experienced in the full range of treatments available and will make the best recommendation for your particular situation. Often we may present more than one option for consideration.

The cost of a termite treatment depends on a number of factors, which is why we can’t give out quotes over the phone. We will need to organise a site visit to provide a FREE quote.

Tips to prevent termites

Here are some ways you can help reduce the risk of termite attack at your property :

Remove stored timber, debris from under, in and around the propertyStoring timber against or under your property on a soil sub-floor will provide termites an attractive food source and nesting site. It can also hide evidence of termites invading your home. Remove any timber and/or debris away from the house.

Repair leaking taps and pipesThese include leaking taps, pipes and hot water overflow pipes under or around your property. Repairing these will reduce moisture levels, which attracts termites to your property.

Ensure that vents to subfloor areas are never blockedPoor ventilation in the sub-floor areas of your property will result in high humidity and moisture levels. Good ventilation and extraction fans where necessary are essential to reduce the risk from termite

Divert all hot water services & air conditioning overflows away from the side of the houseEnsure stormwater runoff is properly connected.

Use only termite treated timber in garden beds, retaining walls and fence postsDo not use untreated timbers to form garden beds or retaining walls, as these provide termites with an attractive food source.

Construct timber fences and support posts with a 50mm clearance between the timbers and the soilOften the bases of timber fence palings and/or sub-floor timbers breach the soil surface. This allows termites access without detection. Best practice would be to use metal stirrups in the foundations.

Keep a clearance of plants/shrubs from sides of the propertyPlants/shrubs growing against the side of your property make it difficult to detect termites entering the building. Try to have at least a 30cm space between property and any plants/shrubs. Avoid planting trees that have strong root systems that are likely to travel under your property (termites can use these as a highway)

Avoid using watering systems around the perimeter of the hometermites love moisture and it’s important to keep the area around the building dry

Remove dead trees/stumpsDead trees/stumps are ideal areas for termites to nest in. Remove these or have them treated to reduce the risk to your property.

Building alterations or additions can make previous termite protection ineffectiveAdding a deck, pergola, tiling a patio, concrete slab extensions, or new plumbing will require additional termite protection. Talk to us before you start any new renovations or landscaping.
