Termite Treatments in Melbourne
We fight to keep termites out of business. In Australia, termites are also referred to as white ants. They can cause structural damage to wooden buildings, fences, railway sleepers, poles, bridges and trees – therefore, termite pest control must be a priority! Call Pestline on 1300 361 646 now.
Termites are amongst some of the most destructive household pests in Australia, but they can even also affect the infrastructure of any commercial property as well. As these pesky little insects have stomach enzymes that can break down cellulose, starches, and other natural materials, termites can literally consume the wooden foundations, and even metal insulation or piping in your home. When termite infestations go left unchecked, they can often cause hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars of damage to homes and businesses by chewing through your wood foundations and effectively destroying residential or commercial properties from the inside out- termite inspection is crucial!
As subterranean termites live deep under or inside the foundations of your property, they can be quite difficult to eradicate or even detect. Most homeowners may not even realise they have a termite infestation until after irreversible damage has occurred, such as cracks in your flooring or even in your walls and ceilings due to deep-rooted structural damage. Termite infestations are best caught early, as subterranean termites have been known to consume around 5kg of wood in a month.
Whilst household bug sprays may help kill one or two on sight, chances are there are dozens or even hundreds more of these pests going unnoticed as they continue feeding and weakening the structural integrity of your property. As a general rule of thumb, the minute you see one termite or even damage caused by termites, you should assume you have an infestation and book yourself a termite treatment.

In order to prevent termite infestation there are a number of measures that our expert termite exterminators will be happy to walk you through. You can install physical barrier treatments, chemical barrier treatments and monitoring baiting systems.
Our team at Pestline can provide you with a complete termite inspection of your property, followed by the development of a tailor-made termite removal and management plan which will then help us implement one or of our three solutions. Once your termite inspection has been completed, you are able to choose from the following treatment options:
- Chemical barriers – these will provide a zone of treated soil around your property or buildings and, depending on the type of soil and chemicals used during the treatment, this barrier will have to be replenished within a certain time frame.
- Physical barriers – these can help stop termites from physically getting into your property or buildings. We encourage installing home guard solutions when building your new home to stay proactive when it comes to termite management. Home guard solutions can also be fitted to existing house structures as well.
- Baiting systems – these prompt termites to gather into one area, congregating upon a monitoring system, which will be stocked with a small amount of termicide. Once the insects have collected in the system, they will carry small doses of the chemical back to their main nest and within a few weeks, the entire colony should be wiped out.
Our termite control services are 100% effective, as we install the most efficient and up-to-date steps necessary to protect your property from unwanted and greatly damaging termite infestations.

Termite Removal FAQs
Yes, termites are often an issue in Melbourne due to our warmer climate. Termites can cause structural damage to buildings and homes if left unchecked, which is why a professional termite removalist is required.
You can never get rid of termites permanently, but pest professionals have a variety of methods to exterminate the termite infestation, and also provide termite deterrence advice so that they are unlikely to return. Due to the chemicals you may be exposed to and the difficulty of completely eliminating a termite infestation, you should always leave termite removal to a pest professional.
If you see a termite, you need to act on it quickly to nip it in the bud due to the damage they can cause to your home. However, you do not need to worry! Pest control services are experienced with termite infestations and will be able to assess the situation and flush the termites out.
Termites are attracted to homes as the materials that make up your home are a food source for them, such as wood. Termites also like homes that have damp and warm areas, so if you have any leaky pipes, it is important to get it fixed. If you think you may have termites in your house, always contact a pest professional.
While it is possible to treat termites yourself, it is not recommended. DIY treatments often repel termites from certain areas, but will not kill them. As such, their nest is not destroyed and the termite infestation will continue to grow. Contact a pest specialist from the beginning to receive an appropriate termite treatment plan.
