Termite infestation is more than a general pest issue as it can cause significant damage to the property and add financial strain to its owners if left untreated. It is difficult to eradicate these pests from properties.
Do you see the pest infestation at your property and are searching for effective termite protection or termite treatment in Melbourne?
Tom’s Pest Control has deeper expertise in treating and controlling different species of termites in residential properties, commercial properties, and industrial facilities.
At Tom’s Pest Control, we will conduct a detailed termite inspection, create a customised treatment plan, complete a comprehensive termite control service, and provide you with the tips for ongoing termite control at your property.
Why Is Termite Treatment Necessary?
Australia is home to nearly 350 termite species, and most of them do not cause any issues to humans or damage buildings. In Victoria, just five termite species are pests and cause damage to buildings.
Before moving onto the treatment, you should know the extent of the damage these termite species can make to your property.
Termites eat wooden furniture and products and make them look bubbling or wrinkled. If you have some wooden furniture with great heritage value, you can’t easily replace it like other timber products.
Termite bites are not usually harmful to humans; however, they can create itchiness and cause an allergic reaction.
Termite droppings and nests can create an allergic reaction in people and trigger asthma symptoms.
Under damp conditions, the decomposition of wooden structures by termites can lead to mould infestation. Importantly, the mould spores in the air can create widespread health issues for the inhabitants.
The presence of termites at a property is always considered as carelessness, and people don’t feel welcomed to such properties.
Some termite species are known for even damaging the electric wires and shorting the electrical networks.

How Can You Confirm Termite Infestation At Your Property?
You may not always see termites at your property but should conclude that there is an infestation through the following signs:
Damage or hollowing are detected on your wooden furniture or timber products. Termites infest both softwood and hardwood alike.
Do you see any damage to your stored items, including books, papers, cardboard boxes, and more? If yes, it could be due to termite or white ant attacks.
In many cases, you may notice mud or dirt being deposited in the gaps of skirting or door jambs. It is due to the activity of termites or white ants, and you need the service of a professional termite exterminator.
You may also see a large number of winged insects emerging from the newly developed holes near windows or doors as the first evidence of termite infestation at your property.
If you see any of the following signs at your property, contact Tom’s Pest Control immediately for a termite inspection and white ant treatment services.
Our Termite Pest Control Treatment
At Tom’s Pest Control, we offer complete, four-stage termite and white ant treatment services. The four stages of the treatment are the following:
Once we get the call from you, our certified termite control specialists will visit your property for a detailed termite and white ant inspection. Our experienced technicians will report the termite species, the extent of destruction they have caused, the reasons behind the infestation, and more.
We will also identify the characteristics of the species and the termite nests in and around your property. This also helps us to create a termite and white ant barrier around your property.
Termite Treatment Plan
Based on the inspection results, we will create a tailored termite treatment plan to safeguard your Melbourne property from the pest. The treatment plan will include the type of treatment, the expected results, the treatment timeline, and any instructions to the inhabitants of the property.
We will also communicate the treatment plan and ensure that you receive smooth and transparent termite control services.
The Extermination Process
Our certified termite extermination and white ant protection specialists will complete the procedure as outlined in the treatment plan. At Tom’s Pest Control, we prefer to choose non-chemical treatment options. However, based on the extent of the damage the termites have caused, we may use termite baits, termite dust, or termite foams.
Regardless of the treatment procedure, we use only approved, safe products to complete the extermination process.
Termite extermination may not give you lasting results if ongoing prevention treatments are not there. We will also offer you termite barriers to protect your building against future infestation. At Tom’s Pest Control, we offer three types of termite barriers for termite control.
Physical barriers – mostly a special layer placed under your building slab.
Chemical barriers – treating the soil around the property with termiticides.
Termite resistance materials – use of steel frames, cypress pine framework, concrete tilt slab construction, and more.
You can ventilate the properly well, seal entry points to your property, keep the property uncluttered, and regularly lookout for a termite infestation to minimise the pests attacking your property.
