Many homeowners on the Gold Coast and surrounding suburbs where there is land clearing and new housing starting the trees are cut down and the termites have no option but to seek food. Many of the properties affected by termites are not just old homes, they affect new homes. Many homes we treat for termites issues the products used as under slab termite protection was not effective or not installed correctly.
Termites are looking for new home when the termites have been living in large trees landscapes where there has been huge trees removed, land and soil movement and the termites were not treated or found during the excavation work termite’s just move on to the surrounding properties.
Termites are aggressive and can cause major damage to your home if not found and treated. No home is really safe, many termites are aggressive and will enter home made of steel frames, hardwood, especially homes or extensions that have not properly been built or where the structure is built not using treated timbers.
Our termite’s images are from actual termite jobs on the go or termite jobs completed over the years. When you appoint a technician to do termite work make sure they are licensed to do and install certain termite products by the suppliers, that they are insured to do termite work, that they provide you with a receipt and what chemicals they have used to treat termites at your property.
Should you suspect termite in your home do not disturb the area, it is also important to make tenants of properties aware that if they find termite mud, termite grit build-up or walls that have a soft feel or showing cracking take a picture and email or text to the termite technician who will assist and instruct what needs to be done. If you disturb the area the termite will just move to another part of the residence and will appear damaging another area of your home.
