Especially if you live near our rainforests and bushlands. Well over half of Australian houses are within 25m of at least one termite colony. Here in Far North Queensland our weather and environment provides the perfect temperatures and humidity for termites to thrive and colonise.
It is recommended that all house owners invest in at least annual termite inspections to help manage infestations.
If you think you have found termites or notice mudding (tunnels of mud lines trekking along or up structures or trees) – walls that have a wavy surface of timber, is hollowed or fluted – it is really important that you do not disturb them. Give us a call to investigate as soon as possible. Success in the eradication of termite colonies is dependent upon treating termites while they are active and in large numbers.
