Treat Your Trees to Prevent Termites
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.
What to do if you Find Termites in a Tree in Your Yard
If you do find termites in a tree or tree stump on or near your property, do NOT cut the tree down as there is a good chance the colony will survive as it may well be nested in the ground near the root system (see photo above). If you remove the tree this will make treating the colony at a later date all the more difficult and expensive. It will also make identification of the termite species difficult.Newcastle Pest Exterminators treat termites indirectly in all cases unless a nest is found. Regardless of whether a nest is found or not, our staff are trained to apply only the best quality chemicals meticulously, and we guarantee that the nest will be killed.

Can Termites Fly?
Yes certainly termites can fly and this is the way they colonise new trees. Winged termites are known as alates and they will fly out to mate and build a new nest. Of course fs there is a nice moist area in your garden or in your house you could end up with a termite infestation.
