How much does a termite treatment cost - Brisbane?

Have you just discovered termites in or near your home and want the best treatment to protect it?

The cost of termite treatments varies depending on the size of the home, the type of treatment and the extent of the infestation.

Where to treat around a house for termites

Termite treatments are a necessary expense for homeowners in Brisbane to protect their property from the damage caused by foraging termites. As crucial as house and property insurance.

Before the termite treatment

  1. You need a Termite Inspection done before the treatment, as stipulated in the Australian Standards, and to comply with insurance requirements. If someone is not suggesting this, then you should worry.

    A termite inspection typically costs between $300 to $600. This includes thoroughly examining the property to determine the extent of the infestation and the type of termites present.

  2. You should receive a Treatment Proposal that clearly outlines the cost, type of approach, plus limitations.

Types of Termite Management Systems

  1. Chemical treatments (barriers) are Brisbane’s most common type of termite treatment.

The average cost for a chemical termite treatment: $3000 to $5000.

The price can vary depending on the length of the external perimeter (where the chemical needs to be applied) and the type of chemical.

  1. Baiting systems: Baiting systems are another option for protecting homes in Brisbane. The cost of baiting systems can range from $1500 to $3000, depending on the size of the property and the number of bait stations required. There is an additional ongoing cost to monitor the stations annually.

  1. Physical barriers: Physical barriers, such as infused plastic sheeting and metal barriers, can also prevent termites from entering a property. This kind of termite management system is usually installed at the time of construction. The cost of physical barriers can range from $1000 to $3000,
  2. Combined treatments: Some homeowners choose to use a combination of chemical treatments and baiting programmes for the best protection against termites.

How to choose a company to do your termite treatment

Homeowners should carefully consider their options and choose the best treatment for their property to protect it from the damage caused by termites.

But you really need to compare apples with apples when selecting a company for your termite treatment. Sadly, our industry greatly differs in quality, knowledge, approach, and honesty.

How a termite treatment should be done:

Consumer Warning

  • Fake companies - no QBCC license

Many pest control companies construct a website to make them look local but have their call centre in another city and don’t have the appropriate Queensland licenses.

QBCC Termite License

All companies operating in Queensland need a QBCC license to do termite treatments. Otherwise, you are engaging a subcontractor. If they don’t have a QBCC license, they can’t get insurance and shouldn’t be advertising they do termite treatments.

  • Free check offers - not licensed.

Some companies offer a free “termite check” and quickly suggest a dodgy, overpriced wooden box baiting system as a treatment. These guys aren’t licensed or qualified. Often you need to sign a waiver to say you are accepting a ‘check’, not an inspection to the Australian Standards.

Questions you should ask before engaging a company to do a termite treatment


To help you, we would like to give you a checklist of questions you should ask when calling companies in Brisbane, Australia. You don’t need to ask them all - choose your best three:

  • Do you have a Queensland Health Timber Pest license?
  • Does your company have a QBCC (Queensland Building Construction Commission) license?
  • Is your company insured, and how much does it cover?
  • Can you supply a treatment proposal and do the work?
  • Can you offer options - chemical or baiting programs
  • Do you use generic brands or proven legitimate brands?
  • Are they accredited through the chemical company to apply the product?
  • Where is your office located?
  • How long has the business been operating, and is it family-owned?
