Termites cause millions of dollars of damage each and every year in Australia which can sometimes not be covered by your household insurance.

We use the latest equipment

  • Sounding – a specialist technique to test the integrity of the wood

  • Listening Equipment – detects termite movement

  • Moisture Meters – detects elevated moisture in wood which may indicate the presence of termites

  • Borescope – an invasive technique that can take pictures of active termites in timber

  • Termatrac T3i – detects moisture, thermal variations, and movement

  • Thermal Imaging – detects thermal variations and available in some areas

A termite inspection is recommended at least annually by the Australian Standard AS3660 even if you have a termite protection system in place.

Types of termites

Termites can be grouped into three main categories: dampwood, drywood and subterranean. Subterranean termites are the biggest threat to timber in buildings, which makes them a danger to the biggest investment you may ever make – your house.

Feeding habits

Not all termites eat wood, but those that do, see your house as a big plate of food. They travel through the ground from a nest that may be hundreds of metres away, then they build mud tunnels into your house. They can squeeze through cracks the thickness of a piece of paper.

Steel frames are not invincible 

Even steel-framed houses are not immune from termite attacks. Termites can still get in and destroy wooden roof trusses, furniture and wood trims. Some species of timber are resistant to termites, but nothing is entirely ‘termite-proof’.

Don’t wait until it’s too late

Unfortunately, it is hard for the untrained eye to see what damage is being caused by termites until it is too late. They can each just about anything made from wood, even the gyprock and plasterboard walls. Sometimes only leaving a paper-thin layer of paint. 

Termite colonies

Termites are a social insect, they work and live in colonies. Some subterranean termite queens can produce over 2000 eggs per day. Mature termite colonies can get up to around 2 million in population and exist for as long as 50 years.

A termite mound is probably the most familiar termite nest, but a lot of termites have a completely underground existence. Most of the species that damage buildings will have a central nest in either soil, dead or living trees.

Termite Control Adelaide

Although the coastal and northern parts of Australia are generally at the highest risk for subterranean termite infestation, species which damage timber occurs throughout mainland Australia. However, any structure containing wood is at risk of subterranean termite infestation. Whether that be in the heart of a city or out in the country, so proper protective measures must be taken.
