Welcome to Termite Watch!

Do you need to arrange a termite inspection, or suspect that you have termites in the house?

With over 20 years experience in termite inspections and termite control we know how to best prevent and treat termite issues.

We use a personalised pest treatment proposal, tailored your individual property. Our first choice is always to emply low-toxic and environmentally safe solutions.

Termite Watch is locally owned and operated in Lorne – providing a complete Pest Control service Victoria wide.


It is estimated that the cost of termite damage, in Victoria alone, is well over $300 million dollars per year. As most home owners already know; the Surf Coast is a high-risk area for Termites thanks to its mild weather and many trees.

The Australian Standards for pest control advise that every home should be inspected for Timber Pests at least every 12 months, a service which is offered by most Licenced Pest Controllers. These annual tests provide the best first-line defence against attack from termites and provide great peace of mind.

A Timber Pest Inspection Report (when properly performed) will provide you with advice on these sorts of actions, specific to your property.

Quite often the best defence against termites is regular inspections and a bit of DIY work around the house.


We know from experience that if a home is more than 25 years old, has Eucalypts in the garden and has not had regular Timber Pest Inspection reports, then we will most likely find active termites in or around the home.

If you think you might have termites, please seek advice from an expert. Don’t disturb the workings, as this will only serve to complicate any remedy. Don’t panic. Do not disturb the termites by using household sprays or removing infested wood. There is no immediate threat to the house, so take time to investigate the size and nature of the problem as well as all the available options.

Never simply remove termite damaged timber without treating the insects first. This could cause further issues later on.

Termite Watch can treat termites using efficient integrated pest control methods.

Further Termite Control Information

What are Termites?

Termites are sometimes referred to as ‘white ants’ because of their creamy colouring and ant-like appearance. There are over 350 species of termites in Australia of which some 20 species can damage timber in houses. In nature, they assist in the recycling of organic matter and nutrients back to the soil. Termites avoid light and rarely come out into the open. Often they are found within timbers where they leave a wafer thin layer to protect themselves from the outside environment. Sometimes they conceal themselves within mud-like tubes or galleries.
