Do You Have A Termite Problem?
Termites are by far one of the most destructive pests in Australian homes. If you have ever had a termite infestation you will know they are expensive to treat and can require expensive repairs to your home if they have built a nest in the walls.
Termites, also known as white ants, require moisture from the soil to live and in spring and summer (usually around September/October) they start looking for wooden structures in which to eat, mate and create nests or colonies. They enter homes from the ground, preferring structures where the wood touches earth but they will find their way into any structure through crevices, pipes and even slabs and will climb foundations of homes. The main characteristics of a subterranean termite infestation are the mud tunnels they build to access your home. These tunnels are often found underneath houses and up house piers to reach the timber frame. These mud tubes also provide shelter from weather and predators like birds and ants.
