Termites: How to Identify and Control Them
The most destructive termite is the Subterranean termite and it should be taken seriously. If you notice a problem, there is no time to *put it off* the longer you leave a problem, the worse it will get. The best treatment is prevention, so you need to have regular termite inspections carried out by a fully licensed and trained termite pest control technician. This is the best way to stop any infestations. If there is any damage to your home, or you are experiencing moisture or water issues this needs to be dealt with. Subterranean termites need moisture to survive and they can live undetected underground for years without you even knowing. Warning signs of termites/termite damage include hollow sounding wood, bubbling paint on timber and mud tubes on walls and timbers.
Our technicians use a range of inspection methods and equipment to thoroughly inspect your home.
When it comes to termite protection, our pest exterminator Sydney develop a treatment plan that is designed for your property, the local environment and conditions. We establish a perimeter for your home using discreet in-ground treatments, and we protect your home from any current infestations and prevent new ones from occurring by destroying any near-by nests.
Technicians then continue to monitor your property adjusting any treatment plans as required, ensuring your home stays termite free. We have many different ways to protect your home, and, it’s never too late, from baiting and soil barriers to monitoring systems and liquid control treatments for existing properties, we take the time to educate you on property management tips to reduce your risks of an infestation starting.
Termites common in Australia
Termite bodies are brown to white with a dark head and they have no waist between the thorax and abdomen. They have bead-like segments on their antenna and non-reproductive termites are blind, never fly and have thin skin that makes them vulnerable to drying out.
Nests form in soil mounds, trees or underground. There are 5 main types of nests and many species build more than one type of nest.
- Tree nests – outside in trees connected to an internal cavity
- Tree wood – inside the tree
- Ground mounds
- Subterranean nests – underground, in soil, stumps and tree bases
- Pole nests – on structures such as fence posts and telegraph poles
Not all termites feed on wood, most feed on grass and other matter and are not dangerous to buildings. Termites that do eat wood get their sugar, starches, and cellulose from the timber and sapwood from trees and buildings.
