It’s completely normal for termites to establish a colony in trees in your backyards or nearby bush, particularly in Newcastle, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Maitland and Cessnock. The trained staff at Newcastle Pest Exterminators see termites in trees and tree stumps on a daily basis. Termites in trees can be successfully treated before they enter your home.
Trees and tree stumps are a fantastic food source for termites and offer an opportunity for them to establish a nest lose to your home. The termites will usually eat undetected into the centre of the tree and nest in the root system.
Unfortunately if a tree is close to your home this can pose risks such as an imminent attack on your greatest asset – your home.
