Termites, commonly referred to as white ants, are not ants at all and it is not common to see them in the open.
They attack homes generally through concealed entry and only need a very small space to get into your home – 1mm is enough.
Termite damage is not covered by household insurance and as termites are found virtually everywhere they pose a major threat to Australian homes.
In fact 1 in 5 homes will suffer termite attack and it is estimated that around $800million of termite damage occurs every year in Australia. The average damage is $8,000.
Finding and detecting termites is not a job for amateurs and it takes a trained and experienced professional Pest Manager to know where to inspect and find termites in a home.
Also termites cannot be treated effectively with DIY off the shelf pest sprays. Only an accredited Pest Manager is licensed by Governments authorities to use approved termite treatments.
Your best re-assurance against termite attack for existing homes is to have an annual termite inspection by a Pest Manager. This is a small investment compared to the cost of repairing termite damage.
