Many people know and refer to termites as white ants. Both terms are correct. Termites/White Ants are a big problem in Australia and South East Queensland is especially prone due to its sub tropical climate. The term white ant is due to the colour of the workers. Termites/White Ants eat timber & wood products and as such are the largest threat to our biggest asset, our homes. Termites/White Ants do their damage secretly as they primarily come from the ground and can enter your home entirely unseen, often going undiscovered until vast amounts of damage have been done.

Your best defence against Termites/White Ants is to have an inspection each and every year and to protect your home against infestation with an approved termite protection such as a Termite/White Ant barrier.

What our clients say about our work

Thank you MacCotter’s. You came to my home for a termite inspection and I would like to thank you for your professional but friendly approach. I would also like to thank you for your patience with all my questions (yep, I asked a whole heap) and your consideration with your answers. I have had termite inspections over the years but none so thorough as you provided. Your inspection report was also very detailed. You were prompt & obviously very experienced. You have been able to provide me with some peace of mind about my home and that is worth so much more than what you charged for your inspection. I absolutely recommend you to anyone who wants great service from people who care! Thanks so much.

Spiders Control

Queensland has many species of spiders ranging from web spinning spiders such as the Golden Orb and the St Andrews Cross to ground spiders such as the Huntsman, the Trapdoor and the Garden Wolf Spider. Many of our spiders are quite harmless, though most of us find them very unsightly, however we do have many spider species that are poisonous to humans, some even deadly. These are spiders such as the Red Back, The White Tail and the Black House spider to name but a few. It’s simple to keep your home spider free. Ask us how when we do your next general pest treatment.

Cockroach Pest Control

We use a combination of dust and spray to ensure the best possible result for you. our spray is very low toxic and odourless so no more of that awful chemical smell!! Many technicians use only a dust or a spray but we choose to use both as it provides the most effective treatment.

Ant Control

Funnel ants get their name from the shape of the entrance to the nest which is like a cone or a funnel in the ground. The nests can be so extensive and dense that their presence can severely effect soil structure making it fragile and prone to collapse. They are found Australia wide. The best way to treat ants is to have a licensed technician spray the nest, however dust, spraying and granolas can also be an effective treatment in some cases.

Green Ants

Green ants (weaver ants) are arboreal and are known for there unique nests in trees.they make their nests by sticking leaves together with a sticky substance to form a ball like nest.

Large numbers of arboreal colonies can occupy surrounding trees. Hundreds can be found in greenery in suburban areas. Outdoor activities are hampered by the danger of being bitten, especially if you have an allergy or sensitivity to them.
