Termite Pest Control
Termites, often mistakenly called ‘White Ants’, are becoming an increasingly common problem in and around the Canberra area. They have soft white bodies and are generally wingless. In Canberra there are 4 main species of termites. The termite that generally builds mounds seen around the bush are a different species to that generally found in your home.
Termites cause damage to buildings and can devastate your home as damage is often hard to spot until it is severe. Termites can damage structural timber walls, beams and trusses causing damage that can make your home unsafe and structurally inadequate. They eat the Celulose within things such as wood, paper, cardboard and cork. Potential warning signs that you have a problem may include buckling and damaged wood, swollen floors and flaking paint.
The CSIRO recommends that houses be inspected for termites at a minimum once a year. It is very important not to disturb the damage found in your home by breaking it open further or spraying the termites with household fly and spider spray.
We use the state of the art ‘Termatrac’ tracker to find termites on your property and also use baiting and monitoring systems from Exterra, Termatrix and Exterm once detected to eradicate termite colonies.
