Protect yourself from Queensland’s most damaging pest

In Queensland, we’re blessed to have a warm climate which is perfect or thriving flora and fauna. Unfortunately, this also includes pests such as termites. There are 300 different termite species in Australia alone. Luckily for us though only some of those species cause our home problems. The bad news is that it’s not always easy to distinguish these problematic termites until it’s too late.

Could your home be at risk of termites?

The short answer is yes it could be if the wood has been used to build or decorate any part of your home. Termites (also known as White Ants) feast on sugar molecules which are found in trees and plants. This sugar molecule is still present in wood that is used for the construction of our homes.

This means termites can affect many parts of our homes including:

  • Timber floors
  • Timber decks
  • Timber fences and gates
  • Timber furniture
  • Timber roof beams
  • Timber structural beams
  • Skirting boards
  • Architraves
  • Bathroom and kitchen cabinetry
  • Paper items including cardboard boxes, newspapers, photo albums etc.

Termites can go for long periods of time without food, but almost always need moisture. For this reason, homes that have moist soil, garden irrigation systems, drain pipes on air-conditioning units, leaky taps are most at risk. But it doesn’t end there. Moisture can also gather under bathroom fittings, behind tiles and in wall cavities. Which means termite control is a must.

Keep your home protected with pre-purchase and annual timber pest inspections
