Telltale signs of a Termite Infestation
Below we will give you some pointers on how to spot termites on your property:.
- Termite mud tubes can be seen on your or neighbouring properties
- Any wooden object sagging or with holes in them.
- Small mud deposits can be found around windows, doors or any cracks/slits
- Other wooden structures may be damaged or brittle on the property
- Any wooden structures are weak and break easily
If you have seen any of the above we recommend that you arrange a termite inspection as soon as possible.
When it comes to Termite Infestations you should not wait.
Termite infestation can wreak havoc on a building in a very short period of time. They will destroy anything made of wood that is not treated correctly. Poorly maintained properties are easily infected as the termites will find it easier to gain access to the wood. They can cause major structural damage in a very short period of time and will attract any of the following:
- Anything with a wooden frame or that is made from wood
Termite infestations grow exponentially and can cripple a building in a matter of weeks sometimes and destroy a building in a matter of a few months. This is why we ask you to act as soon as possible.
Typical Termite Treatment Options
With termites, it is best to employ a preventative control plan as once they infest your property it is a lot more costly to control them.
Preventative Chemical Termite Treatments
Typical preventative chemical termite treatments will only keep your property safe from termites if the treatment was applied before they infest your property. You can opt to treat your whole property or only perform a localised treatment on a certain area. Treatments typically last between 5 and 10 years depending on the type.
Termite baiting is one of the strategies used once your property has been infected. The treatment usually takes 3+ months to totally eliminate and colony. Bait boxes will be replenished every 4 to 6 weeks. Once Boxes have been placed the termites will choose to consume the bait rather than your property limiting further damage. Once the infestation is eliminated we recommend applying a preventative chemical treatment to protect against future infestations.
Termite fumigation is the final but most effective choice. While fumigation entirely eradicates a termite colony, it also uses potent chemicals and necessitates that property is evacuated for a period of time. Once fumigation is completed we recommend applying a chemical treatment to your home protecting it from future infestations.

Fast and Effective Organic Termite Control
