We specialise in Termite (White Ant) Inspection, Detection and Treatment Plans.
Houses in Runcorn face significant termite (white ant) threats. On average, Conquer Termites would conduct a chemical treatment to a home in Runcorn once a week. It is hard to put an exact figure on the number of homes that are being attacked and damage by termites in Runcorn, and we certainly aren’t the only company operating in the area, but it would be higher than most suburbs in Brisbane.
Reasons why the termite threat is high in Runcorn
- The housing stock was predominantly built 25 – 30 years ago. The construction method was mainly slab on ground with the external brick wall base embedded in the soil. This allows concealed termite entry. Also, most of the original chemical treatments have expired.
- As Runcorn is a more establish area, so are the gardens. This means there will be old tree stumps that could be harbouring a termite nest in your garden or your neighbours. Old timber retaining walls are as much of a threat as tree stumps.
- High percentage of park-lands that have a large number of native eucalyptus trees that normally harbour termite nests. This is especially so being so close to the Wally Tate Park and the origins of the Bulimba Creek.
