Get peace of mind with a pest inspection or pest control from the…
If there are signs of termites, we’ll find them.
We find present or historical termite activity in almost all homes we inspect, even properties recently inspected and cleared by other inspectors.
That’s why you should trust the Gold Coast Pest Inspector for accurate and comprehensive reports and effective pest control.
Why Choose Gold Coast Pest Inspector?
When it comes to termites, there’s nowhere to hide from Richard Eedy. He is the Gold Coast Pest Inspector, and is perhaps the hardest working inspector on the Gold Coast. His long experience, his knowledge, and his dedication to his trade, mean you get the most comprehensive inspections available.
IS MY HOME AT RISK?
We find termite activity in almost every property we inspect. We often find termite activity in homes that were recently inspected by someone else. Our experience is that termite activity in Gold Coast homes is almost ubiquitous.
Each year, termites cost Australian’s about $4 billion. With an average cost of about $10,000 and the fact that most home insurance doesn’t cover termite damage, you should consider your home to be at risk of termites.

The Two Step Termite Control Process
STEP ONE: THE TERMITE INSPECTION
If you’re worried about termites then you should start with a termite inspection. That way you start your termite control with full knowledge of what you’re up against. We’ll examine the structure of your home, the location, environmental factors, find any past or present termite activity, and only then will we recommend a course of action. This way you get the best and most cost effective termite treatment.
Richard will share his vast knowledge with you. giving you tips to help control the risk factors around you home.
You’ll also get a full written inspection report.
STEP TWO: TRELONA TERMITE TREATMENT
The best form of treatment is the Advanced Termite Barrier System from Trelona. Using this system, we place a series of bait stations around your home. These bait stations are filled with bait that is irresistible to termites. Also deadly. By placing them every 3 metres we give the termites no opportunity to get to your home without first tasting this bait. And once they’ve tasted the bait, they’re not interested in going any further.
Once the termites eat the bait they return to the termite nest, spreading the poison to the other termites, including the queen. This results in colony collapse. Some other termite systems rely on pouring chemicals into the soil around your home. This termite system doesn’t attract termites away from your home, doesn’t result in colony collapse, and doesn’t remove the threat.
WORSE THAN FIRE, FLOOD AND STORMS
Across Australia, an estimated $4 billion damage is caused to homes by termite damage every year. It’s a fact: termites cause more damage to homes in Australia than fire, floods and storms combined. The cost of professional treatment, trades and building materials quickly adds up. And the worst part? Your home or building insurance doesn’t cover it!

No.1 For Pest Inspection Technology
Nothing can compensate for the knowledge and professionalism of a good inspector. Richard’s years of experience and his dedication to finding termites mean he’s often finding termite that other missed. And that’s without requiring any technology. All too often other inspectors fail to do simple things like lifting carpets, checking roof voids or subfloors. Most termite incursions will leave traces of their entry into your home. Richard has an uncanny knack for finding them. Things like mud tubes (the mudding created by termites) are prevalent signs of termites. Where technology can help is for doing non-invasive checks into walls, for instance. Termites create heat and they need moisture to survive. Thermal imaging and moisture meters can help Richard find out what is happening inside a wall cavity where he suspects termite activity.
Thermal imaging should be a standard part of the arsenal of any termite inspection. Termites are creatures and, just like humans, they create heat. A heat signature behind a wall, for instance, is a good indication that termites are active there.
Moisture meters are an extremely valuable piece of technological equipment that helps detect termite infestation. Termites need moisture to survive. You see this in the mud tubes they create. They combine dirt and water to make a habitat for themselves. Excess or unexplained moisture is, therefore, a common sign of termite activity.
