Specialist Termite Control Pty Ltd was formed in 1990 with the specific intent of providing an alternative to the conventional organo-chlorine spray approach to termite treatments.


In the early days, Tom Boschma was the sole operator of the business. It was down to basics, with termite colony location and the use of a few grams of arsenical dust as the central approach.


During this time new methods were being developed and experimented with. One of these was putting the new “CSIRO box bait” system into live building infestations. Whilst this method produced mixed results at first, the response from the public was overwhelmingly positive as home owners looked for safer alternatives to the infamous spraying of chemicals.


The word spread and Tom performed box bait poisoning demonstrations on TV programs such as Burke’s Back Yard, Healthy Wealthy Wise and Our House. All of a sudden “baiting” became the buzz word in the industry.


However, early baiting methods were difficult to perform and unpredictable in outcome. It was also difficult to train technicians in the subjective art of luring termites and the methods never became widely used.


Since these early days of box baiting with arsenic dust, the termite control industry has produced a new range of highly effective and low toxicity poisons that has allowed termite baiting to blossom into the fantastically successful mainstream termite treatment method that was only dreamed of back in the 90s.

Termite baiting does not now involve the damaging and intrusive measures often associated with chemical soil treatments.


Fast forward 20 years, and today Specialist Termite Control is one of Melbourne’s few genuine termite specialists, employing a team of qualified technicians and friendly customer service consultants. Our headquarters are located near Eltham from where we service most of Melbourne and surrounding regional areas.


We have no franchise or commercial link to any supplier and our clients’ own interests are placed before any commercial arrangement. Typically, we offer our clients a range of options and help them choose the option that best suits them. If we use termiticides, they are always waterbased and odourless and our hallmark is to leave our client’s building free from termites but uncontaminated with anything toxic or smelly."
