How to know when it's time for a Termite Inspection

Been thinking about getting a Termite Inspection?

Spring is officially here and the warmer weather has arrived which means it is time for your annual Termite Inspection. With the warmer months bringing the insects out of hiding, it is important to consider a termite inspection because by the time you notice them, severe damage would have already been done to your home. Termites do not discriminate and will target all areas of Brisbane. If you live in North Brisbane then we know that termites have started to become active.

Termites in particular, breed in the warmer weather. They live underground or inside wooden structures, including your home and furniture. Termite damage in homes is often dangerous and very costly to fix. There are 3 warning signs to look for when it’s time to get a termite inspection;

Termites, dead or alive – termite swarms are attracted to light and are often found near windows, doors and lighting fixtures. This swarm is the number 1 signs of termite infestation and should be dealt with immediately.

The second warning sign of Termite infestation is mud tubes. These mud tubes are temporary homes for termites and can be found beneath flooring, on pipes, chimneys, pluming and doorways.

Hollow wood is another strong indicator of a termite invasion. By tapping along wooden fixtures like windowsills and along walls with the handle of screwdriver, a hollow sound will determine that the wood is damaged.

It is important to stop termites from breeding and continuing to swarm around your home to prevent any further damage these coming months. Keeping an eye out for the warning signs is crucial to the safety of your home and family.
