Over 100,000 Australian residential properties suffer from termite attacks each year, causing millions in damage to timber and other materials in homes.
Although termites are small, they can be deadly to your home and its internal structures, particularly in the warm climate of Queensland which is ideal for termites to wreak havoc and risk significant devalue to your home. They have good survival instincts and have survived for millions of years.
Understanding the different species and life-stages of a termite is important, so you are able to effectively identify, eradicate and prevent an infestation.
Along with an annual termite inspection, you can prevent an infestation by addressing any external leaks around your home, getting rid of any old or unused wood and avoiding having garden mulch, watering systems or wood directly against your house - this can all make for a very inviting nest for a termite! Annual Pest Management recommends regular inspections in order to detect the early onset of termite infestation.
