The 3 Best Ways to Safeguard your home against Termites and bugs on the Gold Coast


Homeowner's traditionally will do everything they can to clean up their homes to prevent any unwelcome entities, such as termites and pests. However, no matter how hard some owners may seem to try, family and visitors may unintentionally leave food scraps that would attract these pesky critters. What's more, any tiny crevice or holes are inviting accommodation for termites. Some situations are just out of control when it comes to creating a less conducive living condition for these pests. While a termite infestation may seem like a big threat to many of Gold Coast's homeowners, the good news is that it is preventable (as long as you take serious precautionary measures to counter them). So how do you prevent and safeguard your home against potential termite infestation on the Gold Coast? Here are 3 things you need to know:

Make use of Physical and Chemical Termite Barriers
You can place a physical barrier under the slab of your home or building to restrict the entry points of these termites. These slabs come in wide, overlapped sheets that are sealed with adhesive and are laid in the same way as a moisture layer before the slab is poured.

On the other hand, Chemical barriers are better positioned to protect your home by penetrating your hidden holes and crevices with chemicals that will slowly but surely eradicate the pests through contamination.

 Use Cellulose-Rich materials as Termite Baits

Another effective termite prevention is employing the use of baits composed of materials that are rich in cellulose. Fillings such as wood, cardboard, paper and other materials attract large amounts of termites. While these termites are slowly gnawing these pieces away, they are also chewing on lethal chemicals that will surely eliminate these foraging critters from entering or dwelling within your home. 

Conduct a thorough Inspection and Preventive Treatment

This should be your first call to action the moment you suspect the first signs of termite infestation, more so...if the house is aged. One can not properly discern the extent of the damage caused by these termites. Therefore, it is best to leave this matter to the capable hands of Gold Coast's experts on termite treatment and prevention. Their team of experts can give a thorough inspection, an extensive damage report and devise an effective plan to get rid of these pests for good. 

Give your house the best care that it deserves. After all, it's not just another property. It is your family's foundation which needs protecting. If you want that peace of mind and security knowing your house is termite and pest-free, touch base with our team at CTS Termite and Pest Control now on 1300 664 971.
