TERMITES

 

Termite Nest behind wallIt is a FACT that 1 out of 3 homes in Qld will be affected by termites at some stage!

Unfortunately, by the time most termite infestations are evident, major damage has already occured - early detection is imperative!! 

Save yourself $1,000's in repairs and have regular termite inspections. 

Termites can attack any structure - so regular maintenance is essential! This includes checking for poor drainage, leaking pipes or taps, any damp areas where water does not flow away, scrap timber in yards, tree stumps & branches against external walls, mulched areas, wood rot, and especially timber retaining walls and fences.

I'M NOT SURE IF I HAVE TERMITES IN MY HOUSE?  SHOULD I HAVE AN INSPECTION?

The Australian Standard 3360 recommends all properties should have an annual inspection to check for termites, to avoid potentially major infestations of termites; which within a matter of months, could destroy much of the timber in your home.

Help I think I have termites!

 

  • Do not spray the termites or termite mudding area with insecticide
    • this makes it harder for us to identify the species of termite, and will reduce the impact of our non repellant chemical 
  • Do not knock or scrape off the termite mudding 
    • some varieties of termites are skittish and if disturbed will disappear to another area of the house
Just call us on 0408072250 and we will conduct a full inspection complete with written inspection report and chemical barrier quote
