It 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
