Termite Control Services

Neglecting termite issues on your property can lead to severe and long-term damage. If you allow termites to feed on the walls or foundations of your property, they can weaken structures and lead to costly repairs.

Luckily, there are many preventative measures that property owners can take to safeguard their homes or businesses from termites. Thoroughly inspecting your property’s indoor and outdoor areas to check for signs of infestation can help prevent future destruction.

Moreover, properly sealing vents and gaps around windows and doors can stop termites from entering a building. Ultimately, it is best to watch for termites to protect your homes and businesses from being severely damaged by these annoying pests.

Types of Termites

Various types of termite species may enter your property in Australia. Below are the three most common species that are seen attacking homes and offices often:


Dampwood Termites

Dampwood termites have a larger size than subterranean and dry wood species. The winged termites may measure up to 25 mm long, while soldier termites can be as wide as 20 mm. These termites are light to dark brown and have yellow or red streaks. They are large heads with mandibles that allow them to chew on wood easily. These termites need moisture and water to survive.


Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are small and slim and have long and narrow bodies. The soldier termites measure about 12 mm, whereas the reproductive termites measure approximately 11 mm. These termites live on cellulose found in wooden structures and household objects. They establish colonies in dry areas like attics and backboards.


Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites, or white ants, are highly destructive timber pests. They can cause severe structural damage to commercial and residential buildings. They are small, have soft bodies, and are primarily found in the ground.

Where Can You Find Termites In your Property?

Termites can hide inside and outside your homes. There are many common areas where you must check for termite activities, such as window and door frames, decks or patios, attic spaces, and wooden furniture. It is also wise to look for termite droppings, wings, and mud tubes to take hints on the infestation issue.

Spotting any of the signs mentioned before could indicate a potential termite infestation that requires inspection. However, if you suspect an area has termites, it is best not to disturb it, as this may cause the population to spread to various corners of your property. Instead, you must contact our pest control professionals, who can inspect your property, determine the presence of termites, and provide an effective solution.
