Termites

Problems with termites?

Termites are considered to be amongst the most destructive pests in the world.

Danger Signs

  • Look for termite mud tubes (tubes built from dirt and other materials) in sub-floor area, foundations, skirting boards, cornices, mouldings and roof timbers.
  • Soft floor boards, bulging, staining or rippling of painted timbers.
  • Bits of dried mud falling from joints in walls when tapped.
  • Some species of termites make a “clicking” noise which is usually heard at night time.

Potential Harm

Untreated infestations can cause:

  • Expensive timber damage and repair costs.
  • Home insurance does not cover termite damage ( the risk is too high, and too costly).
  • Termites can be hard to detect and can gain entry to homes, building and structures via underground tunnels originating from the nest (which can be up to 100m away).

Business Consequences

  • Damage — to building structure and furnishings
  • Cost — can be considerable. Temporary closure may be necessary.
