Why Should You Worry About Termites?

Termites do not cause any health issues to humans, but the pest can impact you financially. In Queensland, you can primarily find two species of termites: subterranean termites and dry-wood termites.

Learn the list of damage caused by these termite species and the importance of termite and white ant barrier to secure your property:

  • Subterranean termites are a highly destructive pest group that cause even structural damage to properties and create significant financial impacts.
  • Termites also feed books, paper, swimming pool liners, filtration systems, insulation, and more.
  • If you have furniture with some great heritage value or passed over generations, the pest attack can end you up with an irreplaceable loss.
  • The termite attack and damaged wooden structures may give access to other pests to the property or make the property vulnerable for various pests.
  • The presence of termite at the property may demand frequent cleaning and maintenance. Further, termite infestation is considered as a sign of lack of maintenance, and people may not find themselves welcomed to such properties.
Therefore, if you fail to complete termite control services on-time, you are actually ending up spending much more than you think – sometimes the total construction cost of your property.

How To Confirm Termite Attack?

The termite attack may not be visible to you always, but you should confirm the pest infestation with the following signs:
  • Check for mud shelter tubes of termites around your property, including the foundation.
  • Sagging doors and wooden floors
  • Cracked paint and plaster around the wooden parts and structures of your property.
  • Accumulation of dry mud in the door joints or window architraves.
  • Earthy and muddy materials around power points. You may also experience power failures.
  • Easily damaged door jams, architraves, or skirting boards.

FAQs

How do I permanently get rid of termites in my house?

If you have spotted a termite issue on your property, it is best to contact a pest control company to offer appropriate treatment for the same. Professional pest control treatments eradicate termites from your property and make arrangements to prevent them from coming back again in future. When you hire a professional, you can expect to inspect your property to check for the level of infestation and amount of damage done. A treatment will then be offered depending on the condition of your furniture or walls. With appropriate treatments, it is possible to remove termites forever from your home.

Should you cover termite holes?

If you have spotted small termite holes in your furniture, the chances are that this is the beginning of the infestation. You may use natural ways to kill the termite or hire a professional to do so. You can later cover the small holes using a wood hardener. However, if the level of infestation is high, there are chances of the wood being damaged too much. In this case, you must remove damaged wood to prevent your furniture’s condition to worsen. Remember, small holes can be covered easily. However, big holes require replacing wood or furniture as they can’t be covered up well.

What is the most effective termite treatment?

Many termite treatments can give you great results. However, the one which is the most common and preferred by many is the installation of a baiting system. This procedure requires a pest control professional to instal baits in areas that are affected. When the termite feed on these baits, they begin to die. It is usual for termites to collect food and take it to their mates and the queen. Once the entire colony has consumed the bait, the infestation issue ends. This treatment is effective and convenient to be applied in various settings, be it home or office.

What is the fastest way to get rid of termites naturally?

One of the most effective natural remedies for killing termite is borax powder. Sprinkle borax powder on the affected area to kill termites naturally. You may prepare a liquid solution by mixing the borax powder with water. You can fill this solution in a bottle and spray it on to the affected area as and when required. It is essential to know that natural remedies only work when the infestation level is low. If your furniture has been affected by termites for a long, you will have to hire a professional to treat the issue.

Is termite damage covered by insurance?

The simple answer to this is No. Your home insurance will not cover damages done by termites. Insurance companies cover accidental damages. Damage done to your property by termites isn’t considered to be an accident as you can keep an eye on your property through regular inspection. Also, with thorough checks, you can spot the issue initially and get it treated on time, so there’s no damage done to your property in the long run. As insurance companies believe termite attacks are preventable, they do not include any coverage for them in the policy.

How quickly does termite treatment work?

The time taken for the termites to vanish from your property depends on the type of treatment used. If you have got baits installed on your property by a pest control expert, you may have to wait for a few weeks to see the results. As and when the termites come in contact with the bait, they will begin to die. For the entire colony to be killed, you may have to wait for at least a week or so as the bait may reach the colony’s queen in a few days.

How often should you treat your house for termites?

It is recommended to get your home treated for termites at the first sign itself. Acting fast upon the problem will save you the time and effort for getting extensive treatments done. How frequently you will have to treat your home for termites depends upon its condition. If you appoint a professional to treat the issue initially, the chances are you may not have to repeat it for several years. However, if you had delayed the procedure for long and got the treatment done when the problem was huge, you may have to get a regular inspection done to ensure the problem isn’t arising again. With liquid termite treatment, you may not require a repeat session for up to 5 years. Whereas, with bait systems, re-treatment is required every few months.

Should you not buy a house with termites?

Termites can infest any home. If you love a home, but it’s got a termite infestation issue, you can contact Tom’s Pest Control Brisbane to check for the level of infestation. Our experts will visit the property and inspect it for you and determine the amount of damage done to its by termites. Our experts will also tell you how well the infestation can be treated and whether it would be a problem staying in this home in future. If our experts feel that the infestation isn’t much and can be treated easily, they will encourage you to buy the home.

What is the best time of year to treat for termites?

Termites can enter your home during any season. You can get termite treatment done any time of the year. It isn’t wise to wait for a particular season to have the treatment done, as this can increase the issue and lead to significant damages to your property. When you see the first signs of termite infestation, you must contact a professional pest control company to inspect your property and suggest a suitable treatment. The procedure must be carried on as soon as possible to prevent the termites from multiplying and further damaging your property.

How much does termite treatment cost?

Termite treatment in Brisbane may cost you anywhere from $330 to $3500, depending on the type of treatment you avail. Spray or dust treatment starts from the range of $330 and can go up to $660, depending on the level of infestation and the area to be covered. However, if you want to get bait systems installed or soil treatment is done on your property, you may have to spend about $2500 to $3500. It is difficult to provide the cost of termite treatment without inspecting the property, as every home may have a different infestation level. To know the exact cost of termite treatment, it is best to hire a pest control expert to inspect your property and provide a quote.

How long does termite treatment last?

A termite treatment may last anywhere from a year to five years, depending on its type. Termite treatments involving the application of liquid solution may last for up to 5 years if done by the right pest control company. However, if you have chosen baits to kill the termites in your property, you have to schedule a yearly maintenance session to check for the progress and if the need is to set up the baiting system again. To ensure the termite treatment gets you maximum benefit, hire a professional pest control company that carries out the treatment using appropriate products and techniques.

How does termite treatment work?

Every termite treatment works differently. If you choose chemical treatment for your property, you can expect the soil on which your building will stand to be chemically treated. When termites come in contact with the chemical, they die instantly. Hence, this treatment prevents termites from entering your property and damaging your furniture or wall. If you choose the bait treatment for your property, the baits installed in your home become the source of food for the termites. Since the baits include pest-killing insecticides, all termites coming in direct or indirect contact with the baits die over time.

What is the best termite treatment?

A pest control expert can determine the best termite treatment for your home. You can contact Tom’s Pest Control Brisbane and book an inspection by our experts for your property. Our representative will visit your home or office and check for the termite infestation issue and suggest an appropriate treatment for the same. The treatment will be suggested depending upon the areas attacked by the termites, the level of infestation and the amount of damage done. The treatment suggested by us will help eliminate termites from your property and prevent them from coming back again in the future.
