How To Detect Termite Infestation in Bendigo

Termites can sometimes go unnoticed for a long time on your land or in your house before being discovered. Termites, whether dry wood termites that dig deep within wooden structures or subterranean termites that live mostly underground, can be difficult to detect before major damage has been done.

It’s critical to recognise the warning signs as soon as possible to assist in limiting the amount of damage.

Some of the obvious signs of termite activity can include:

  • Drywall that is discoloured or drooping
  • Paint that is peeling and looks like it has been damaged by water
  • When you tap the wood, it sounds hollow.
  • Drywall with small, tiny holes

These are just some of the tell-tale signs (see a more extensive list below) and are all good reasons to contact your trusted pest control Vic company, VIP Pest Control.

Termite Treatment Bendigo

Treatments for termites have come a long way in recent years and VIP Pest Control is committed to bringing the latest and greatest innovations in pest control to Bendigo.

Termite-killing chemicals were once commonly utilised by pest control experts. This type of pesticide is referred to as a “repellent” in the business. Repellents aren’t the most effective therapy because they were never intended to completely remove termite colonies, but rather to function as a deterrent. Termites would effectively avoid treated regions because of this.

When a home is treated with a termite control treatment like Bifenthrin – which is still available as a low-cost option – you risk trapping the termites within your home rather than keeping them out.

At VIP Pest Control we have a range of termite treatment options to get rid of Bendigo termites.

Signs You Should Book a Termite Inspection in Bendigo

Termite infestation can go unnoticed for long period of time, something which termites use to their benefit to cause damage. If you detect any of the following signs around your home, you should contact a professional Bendigo pest control firm and schedule a termite inspection:

  • Termites in flight and strewn wings
  • Your walls or ceiling are making clicking noises
  • It’s difficult to open doors or windows
  • Paint that is peeling and looks like it has been damaged by water
  • When you tap the wood, it sounds hollow
  • drywall with small, tiny holes
  • Wooden or laminate floorboards that are buckling
  • Loose tiles, often due to the moisture left behind by termites on the floor

The easiest approach to determine if you have a termite infestation is to get a termite examination.

The examination includes looking at accessible timbers in the interior, exterior, subfloor, roof, garden, and fences of your home.

After that, you’ll get a Termite Inspection Report with findings, inaccessible high-risk regions, and recommended remedies for the investigated areas.

How To Get Rid of Termites in Bendigo

Termite treatment involves two things: a pest control professional who visits your property on a regular basis, and proactive cleaning by the property owner.

VIP Pest Control’s Bendigo termite inspection and treatment services will help you keep your property pest-free. Property owners can assist by keeping their home or business clean and eliminating any unwanted wood, green trash, or debris.

It is critical that you hire a professional pest control company rather than attempting to cure termites yourself. Termites are infamous for their destructive capabilities, and if they are not treated properly, they can cause even more damage and relocate to a new part of your property.

It is recommended to hire a professional termite controller who will conduct a property assessment and verify that the entire property is properly and effectively treated for termites.

Termite Treatment Cost in Bendigo


A termite examination in Melbourne can cost anything from $250 to $350 for a small home to $500 or more for larger homes.


Quick remedies only address the termite infestation in the immediate area. This can cost between $300 and $900 and is done by spraying, foaming, or dusting. While these treatments are useful for a minor infestation, they do not give long-term protection.


Spray treatments kill termites that are visible, but they do not manage infestations. Chemicals that are repellent and non-repellent can be employed. While termites may sense repellent spray, which permits them to discover new entry points, the non-repellent spray is preferable because it is nearly undetectable.


Broad colonies that have spread across large areas are targeted with full treatments. Termite barriers and termite baiting are the two full treatment methods. These treatments can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 and provide long-term control and protection.

  • Anthony Posted August 10, 2017 4:24 AM

    Thanks to VIP Pest Control for making our home free of pesky insects. They do a great job in and out. We had a mice issue. Not anymore. Very good and communicating and they were able to do the job on a Saturday. Great job guy’s. Highly recommend.

  • Sharp Instincts Posted October 29, 2021 5:02 PM

    I called the team at VIP Pest Control with an urgent request after coming back home from holiday and finding ants all over my kitchen. I couldn’t find the source or what they were coming for, but VIP Pest Control were able to visit the property within 24 hours and fix the problem. Brilliant service, would definitely use again.

  • Tino Posted October 29, 2021 5:05 PM

    We operate a local vineyard and we have been having real problems with wasps feasting on our grapes. It can be an expensive problem for us, so we needed a solution. After trying a number of other solutions, VIP Pest Control were able to sort the problem for us. Would definitely recommend them to anyone with a wasp problem.

  • Henry Posted October 30, 2021 1:44 PM

    We were preparing to sell our home when we noticed a termite infestation within our walls. We were concerned about the damage they could do if we didn’t get on top of it so, a friend recommended us VIP Pest Control. They were a real life-saver and came out and sorted the problem for us so that we could sell our house and move on.

  • Thomas Posted October 30, 2021 1:45 PM

    I was impressed by the knowledge and expertise of the team at VIP Pest Control! We had an issue with rodents at our house and whilst mouse traps would catch them, they never really solved the problem. Since we got VIP Pest Control on the job, we haven’t seen a mouse in the house!

  • Lucas Posted October 30, 2021 1:51 PM

    I always thought that pest control would be super expensive, so I was very surprised at the affordability of VIP Pest Control’s service. They did a fantastic job ridding our house of ants and three months later, we are still having zero problems with pests in our home.

  • Leo Posted October 30, 2021 1:53 PM

    As a business owner, the health and safety of my staff is super important so when a staff member reported to me that they had noticed cockroaches around the office, I knew I had to act. VIP Pest Control were able to find the source of the infestation and deal with it promptly.

  • William Posted October 30, 2021 1:54 PM

    We were looking at buying a new home in the area and someone told us that we should consider getting a pest report before we signed the contract. Lucky we did! The walls were infested with termites! The cost of the report easily saved us thousands of dollars in the long run. Thank you VIP Pest Control!

  • Noah Posted October 30, 2021 1:55 PM

    We have a few dogs and one of them ended up bringing fleas into the home. We weren’t sure what to do, but VIP Pest Control had all the answers and were able to help us get rid of fleas for a great price.
