Termites

“Termite infestations can compromise the structural stability of a home or business, and cause more damage in Australia than fire, floods and storms combined.”

Termites are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week without anyone even knowing!

Approximately 32 percent of all houses and businesses in Australia, currently have some sort of termite activity, which means, about 1 in 3 homes in Southeast Queensland are under attack from TERMITES.

Termite damage is not covered by insurance!

Termites are responsible for over a $3.9 Billion Dollar’s worth of damage to homes and businesses each year, which is not covered by insurance and could leave you with a huge repair bill.

Mud Tubes serve as a bridge between the termite colony and the wood they consume. Made of tiny pieces of soil, wood, debris, and termite fecal matter they appear flattened, muddy looking and are about the width of a pencil usually found on external brickwork, fences and sometimes can be visible internally.

Alates (reproductive winged termites) from mature colonies typically leave the nest at one of two times per year – During the spring and summer. Attracted to the light, Alates are often found near lighting fixtures, windows doors, and vents.

Noises created by a large termite infestation. clicking, rattling, and tapping termite sounds are produced when the termites travel through wood searching for food or they are disturbed and feel threatened.
