Together Peter and Elaine started Termite Doctors back in 2002 with the desire to offer homeowners on the Sunshine Coast a unique service. Their aim was to become the premier, most trusted Pest Control Business on the Sunshine Coast.  Owned since 2002, this has been shown to be the case with multiple business awards, our customers’ great feedback and continued support and loyalty. Over 75% of our business comes from referrals.

Peter has been working in Pest Control for well over 20 years, starting in WA but with most of his time spent in QLD between the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. Over this time Peter has been involved in many aspects of Pest Control, including being part of writing Codes of Practice for the industry, training and utilization of termite detection dogs and fumigation work.

In 2004 Peter was awarded the inaugural Pest Manager of the Year Award by his peers.

David entered Pest control in 2004 as a school-based trainee working at Termite Doctors Sunshine Coast. He was awarded Cadet school-based trainee of the year in 2004. After working in the family business for a number of years, he made the decision to branch out to increase his business and pest knowledge in this industry.

David Joined BASF The Chemical Company (Termidor) in 2011 and was appointed as the Qld, NT and NZ Sales Manager. In 2017 David welcomed the first addition to his young family and with the desire for more work life balance the decision was made to open a Termite Doctors office in Brisbane in 2017, with the aim to offer the same great service and advice to all our clients.

Chris Arnold

Head Technician

Licence number: PMT-1002592612

Chris joined the Termite Doctors’ team in 2009 and has been an integral part of the team. The main feedback on Chris is that his passion and knowledge is well beyond his years. Chris has a passion for customer satisfaction and is also a budding movie extra. You may spot him in the latest ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie or Angelina Jolie’s movie ‘Unbroken’ to namedrop a few.


Termite Detection Dog

Sherlock joined our team in April 2005 and was trained by Peter Arnold for the detection of active termites. He was a great asset to the team and not only did he always get compliments on how cute he looked, but he had a real knack for finding termites. Unfortunately, due to age and poor health, Sherlock was laid to rest in  December 2014. RIP Sherlock. You are missed!

Teddy joined the team in early 2015 and has to be by far one of the friendliest puppies. Hopefully you will get a chance to meet him at some point in our office.

Teddy is a Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzer who is currently under preliminary training to take over from Sherlock.
