Termite Inspections & Treatment (White Ants)

Book Online - Easy & Convenient

The biggest threat to your home isn’t fire, or flood. It’s termites. Also called white ants, termites cause more damage to Adelaide and Australian homes each year than fire and flood combined. That’s over $1 billion! Please visit our Pre Purchase Building Inspection service for termite control and white ant control. Termites live underground in colonies numbering into the millions. They forage widely, constantly looking for cellulose material – including the timber in your home and they gain access in a number of ways.

Sadly, every day at Murray’s we see the heart breaking damage termites cause to homes where owners thought they had nothing to worry about. The first step to take to protect your home? Simple. Start with a Visual Termite Inspection & Report (VTIR), by a qualified Murray’s technician. It’s vital – and recommended by the CSIRO & Australian Standards. That will let you know how at risk your home is – or if termites are already there. Remember, the cost of an inspection is small, compared to the cost of repairing extensive damage.


Termite Treatments


The best way to properly protect your home from a termite attack in Adelaide depends on variables like size, construction, soil type etc. Every home is different but with 50+ years experience, Murray’s Adelaide termite control uses & recommends two treatment options we believe offer the best available protection.  One is a liquid treatment called Premise, the other a baiting system called Sentricon. (click for brochures) See our Premise treatment video. See our Sentricon Installation & FAQ videos. Making a free, on site, no obligation appointment for an Adelaide termite inspection by a Murray’s Pest Management Consultant lets you discuss your options, have your questions answered and you’ll receive a written proposal, plan and firm quotation to protect your property from termites.


Our Adelaide termite extermination procedures are safe and accredited.

Book A Prior to Purchase Timber Pest Inspection Now

Buying a house? Don’t buy termites! Did you know that most building inspections don’t cover timber pests? For that, you need a Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection (PPI) to report on termite and borer activity, fungal decay and issues like ventilation and damp likely to cause future termite problems. It makes sense to be certain about such a major investment. Murray’s PPI service offers quick turnaround and an emailed report to meet your cooling off period. Better to be safe than sorry with termite control!

How do I recognise termite evidence?

Termites are by nature secretive, that’s why much of the damage they inflict can take place before you even notice them. Tell-tale signs of termite infestation include:

  • Brown mud “shelter tubes” sometime looks like coffee grounds
  • Sagging floors or doors
  • Brown lines in gyprock
  • Cracked paint or plaster
  • Power failures (termites are attached to the warmth of electrical fittings and can chew through insulation).
  • Flying ants “Alates” normally through Oct to Nov on a humid day


Is the chemical toxic to humans and other animals?

Although Premise is lethal to termites, its specific mode of action is much less hazardous for humans, pets and wildlife. Premise has the same active ingredients as most market-leading veterinary products applied to cats and dogs for the control of fleas. Our highly trained pest control professionals will follow all appropriate label requirements to keep your pets and you safe.

Why are the termites in my house but not next door?

It’s highly likely they are next door! There are many conducive conditions which attract termites, like the type of building construction, if there’s been previous termite infestation, moisture around the building, ventilation & plants/trees close to the building. All contribute to an increased risk of termite infestation.
