Problems Slug-a-Bug’s Termite Pest Control in Brisbane Solves


Termites are tiny insects that look like white ants with wings, but their small size should not fool you because they cause severe damage to trees, yards, furniture, and homes before you even realise they are there.

  • Dry wood termites can wreak havoc on a home. They create large colonies inside of walls and floors that can permanently damage them as they eat these structures from within, causing them to fall apart. Wooden floors can sag, furniture can collapse, and walls can grow mould from termite colonies. When we treat for termites, we will assess the damage done, destroy the colony, and remaining termites. We will also provide prevention instructions to keep them from coming back.
  • Termites can destroy trees and vegetation in yards, which can be a devastating loss for homeowners who have spent years cultivating their trees and gardens. Our technicians can evaluate your yard for signs of dry wood or subterranean termites and will determine the best course of action to preserve your yard while exterminating these destructive pests.
  • For some people and animals, termites can cause allergies, and occasionally, termites will sting, leading to pain and itching. Avoid this discomfort by learning the signs of termites in your home or building and consulting professionals for assistance if you suspect you may have termites.

Do not hesitate to take action
before it's too late.

Termites are a small but mighty nuisance that can quietly devour structures, but our professional technicians will ensure that your home or yard has protection from these pests with a 12-month warranty on each treatment.
