Residential Pest Control
Pest problems are a health hazard and have the potential of compromising home tranquillity. For example, rodents or cockroaches can carry diseases such as viruses and bacteria, and termites can lay damage worth thousands of dollars to your home.
This is why it is essential to apply regular pest control to your home, especially if you live in an environment prone to pests.
Pest inspections are recommended to determine whether you have an infestation or not, and immediate pest treatment will be necessary to stop the infestation from spreading.
Creating a barrier around your home will prevent the pest from coming inside. This will make your home a haven so that you do not have to worry about unwanted visitors. At Pro Pest Control Townsville, we can offer our professional services to ensure that your home remains free of any pest.
Commercial Pest Control
Commercial businesses such as strata, offices, retail shops, restaurants, shopping centres, childcare, government, hotels schools, and universities need to be protected against pest infestations.
A pest control problem will not only put the staff at risk but may also damage your reputation. An ongoing pest control problem may lay physical damage into the business as well, as it may compromise the building or your supplies.
This is why routine pest control service is essential to any business. Not only will it prevent the pests from coming inside, but it will also keep you within the regulations of the Queensland Government Department of Health.
Skipping your pest control responsibilities may lead to bad reviews and multiple fines. Talk to our commercial team about keeping your business running without pest issues.
Termite queens lay around one egg every three seconds, which means they can lay about 30,000 eggs every day. Left alone, a termite infestation will mature and lay great damage to your home. This is why our termite inspection service is recommended at least once a year. Especially for individuals who wish to buy a home.
Termite inspections must be done both in the building and around the perimeter (i.e., your yard). Various tools will be used to confirm an infestation, such as torches, moisture meters, thermal imaging, and microwave radars. The findings will be written down in a report, and if a termite infestation is confirmed, we will take the right steps to treat it.
Once a termite colony is confirmed in your home, you need to terminate the colony before the pest lays even more damage. Termite live spraying is typically used as the main course of treatment, killing the colony and its queen, preventing it from laying more eggs.
Termiticide will be sprayed over the infected areas, killing the main bulk of termites. The termiticide typically works in a carrier system, reaching other termites before the “host” dies. At Pro Pest Control Townsville, we use Termidor in order to get rid of this pest.
Termite treatment has to be applied before installing a termite barrier, as it removes an existent colony and creates a clear canvas first. Without this step, the colony will be trapped in your home, being unable to leave and using the timber in your home as its only food source.
Termites are the type of pest that can deal a lot of damage to the wood structure of your home. This is why you need to prevent their access in your home from the very start. You need a termite barrier, which will create a field around your home over which the termites cannot cross.
There are various termite barriers that you may use to improve your pest control problem. You may have them installed before or after you finish building your home. The termites will either be physically unable to cross the barrier, or they will die when they attempt to do so.
Physical barriers are the first type, and they are installed around the house in the pre-installation stage. These barriers will physically prevent the termites from passing, although the pest may still find other means to get past the barrier.
The second type of barrier against this pest is the chemical barrier, which has shown to be more effective as compared to a physical barrier. Any termite that comes into contact with the chemical barrier will die shortly, therefore preventing the chances of bringing a colony in or creating an infestation. For the termite barrier to keep the pest away in the long term, it needs to be reapplied periodically.
We use Termidor in order to create a protective barrier around your home. This will keep pests at a distance and kill potential scouting termites that try to cross over into your home.
Termite Baiting Systems
Ensure your home’s protection from termite infestations by installing a Termite Baiting System! These systems work to intercept and monitor potential activity, effectively drawing them away from your dwelling with bait that is especially attractive to these pests. With this additional layer of defense for one of our most prized possessions, you can rest easy knowing you’re protected against the damage associated with an unchecked infestation.
The termite baiting system will be regularly checked, and if termite activity is confirmed, the non-toxic cellulose bait will be replaced with one that has been laced with termiticide. The termiticide is unnoticeable by the termites, so once they eat it, they will be infected.
The termiticide will not immediately kill the termites, but instead, they will carry it in their bodies to the colony. Once other termites come into contact with it, they will become infected as well – an infection that will reach all the way to their queen. The termiticide will prevent the termites from moulting, which will eventually kill them.
At Pro Pest Control Townsville, we use Sentricon, Exterra, and Trelona as termite baiting systems. All of them are ten times more attractive to termites than regular wood, and they will intercept the termites before they make their way into your home. The termite baiting system will act as a barrier, preventing the pests from laying damage to your home.

How Much Does Pest Control Cost?
Pest control in Townsville can be anywhere from $100 to $700, depending on the size of your home and the products that you are going for. A small studio, for instance, will cost less to be treated against pests. The average 3-bedroom home typically costs around $200-$300 to have the pests removed.
How Long Does Pest Treatment Take?
Getting rid of pests may take anything from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. It depends on the type of treatment that we are applying, the size of the infestation, and the size of your home. Results for pest control should be visible within the first two days.
Will My Pet or Children Be Affected by Pest Control?
In most cases, our products are typically not harmful to pets and children. However, you may want to talk to your pest controller about the appropriate pest control plan for you. It is also recommended that you stay out of the house while the treatment is applied.
