What do you need to know about termites?

Hunter Valley Pest Control & Management - OzPest Solutions

Termite inspections

Why is termite damage so extensive and expensive? These tiny pests can get away with a lot before an untrained eye will spot them. It’s one of the reasons that the Australian Standards and CSIRO recommend annual termite inspections, by a professional, as a minimum.

When you call OzPest Solutions for help, we will take the time to learn about your house and what you might have noticed around the property. We will then inspect your property’s interior and exterior, as well as the subfloor and roof void (if applicable).

With our specialised tools and local knowledge, we will find any termites that may be present, or any damage they may have caused and report our findings back to you.

On the occasion that our inspection does not find active termites, we will inform you of any risk factors and/or conducive conditions that may lead to termite attack in the future if not rectified. After an inspection, these areas of concern will be brought to your attention, giving you the opportunity and ability reduce the risk of termite attack in the future.

If we do find termites, we will work with you to develop an effective and non-disruptive treatment plan.

All about termites

If there’s one word homeowners hate to hear, it’s probably “termites”. While we will give you personalised advice and options, understanding these pests, how they behave, and how to spot them, can help give you a head start.

Identifying Termites

subterrainin termite control

Subterranean termites

About the size of a matchhead and cream or white-ish coloured, they are mistakenly called “white ants”. Although they nest underground, they're responsible for most home damage.

Drywood Termites

Drywood Termites

2 to 6 mm long and usually pale brown. They eat dry wood and are usually found in homes, dead trees, utility poles, and stored lumber.

dampwood termite

Dampwood Termites

12 to 15 mm and brown. These pests eat moist wood and can be attracted by dilapidated buildings, leaking taps and showers, and timber close to the ground.

TERMITE BEHAVIOUR

Unfortunately for us, termites are very social pests. They live together in massive colonies, as big as several million. When it comes to humans though, they’ll avoid you at all costs, so you probably won’t see them unless they swarm.

Depending on the species, termites will live underground, in the home, or in trees. But all kinds feast on wood, eating timber from the inside out.

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY TERMITES

When it comes to destructive pests, termites are number one – causing over $100 million dollars of damage to Australian homes every year. But eating away at the timber in your house isn’t the only problem they cause. There are other concerns around termites, including:

  • Allergies and asthma
  • Increase and spreading of mould
  • Damage to electrical wiring

  • Hollow sounding wood (particularly skirting birds, window frames and doorframes)
  • Cracked paint and wallpaper

  • Tunnels through wood
  • Termite frass
  • Mud tunnels inside and outside

  • Cleaning and repairing gutters and drainage
  • Not storing timber against the house or directly on the ground
