Termites in Brisbane, Holland Park
Holland Park is a suburb of Brisbane, that is situated approximately 8 km south of the Brisbane central business district. Holland Park is an older suburb made of largely post-World War II wooden homes. In fact over 89% of dwellings are older style houses.
Surrounding suburbs include Greenslopes, Coorparoo, Carina Heights, Mount Gravatt East , Tarragindi and Holland Park West. These well established areas seem to supply our business with loads of termite enquiries and treatments.

Rule No. 1.
Remove all tree stumps from your yard as our most common termite schedorhinotermes sp. loves to nest in dead tree stumps. The photo above shows a termite nest that was found beside this Holland park home under a dead tree stump. Stump removal is important!
Poor ventilation and plumbing leaks encourage termite activity.
