Each year, the subterranean termite is responsible for causing more damage to Australian homes and commercial properties than fires, storms, floods and earthquakes combined. In fact, data compiled by Forestry Corporation show 1 in every 5 homes is attacked by termites with an estimated $200 million worth of damage each year to houses in Australia (CSIRO) as a consequence.

This won’t happen to me and my home. Is that what you’re thinking now? Well, you shouldn’t be too sure of yourself.

In January 2014, a massive fire erupted when a wooden power pole collapsed and ignited the dry grass in its’ vicinity. 57 properties in Parkerville and Stoneville in Western Australia were destroyed. The wooden power pole was in fact rotten and severely damaged by termites.

Termites are constantly on the lookout for more food (in this case, timber) and they won’t stop, even if they’ve found another food source. So if you’re aware that a neighbour’s home has been infested with termites, ensure you get your home inspected by a trustworthy pest control company.

The world has come a long way in terms of the termite or white ant management solutions available on the market, and the success rates of such treatments. However, to utilize them effectively, one needs the skills of a specialist and many years of experience. The results of choosing an unsuitable termite treatment for a particular situation or not performing the control program correctly can be disastrous.

Before a treatment solution is selected, an assessment must be conducted on the property to determine exactly how serious the problem is and which products or treatments would best suit the situation. A termite attack can only be successfully fought with the most appropriate treatment program.

  4. 4. HOW DO YOU GET TERMITES • Owing to their wood-eating habits, many termite species can do great damage to unprotected buildings and other wooden structures.[189] Their habit of remaining concealed often results in their presence being undetected until the timbers are severely damaged, leaving a thin layer of a wall that protects them from the environment.

  6. 6. OTHER INFO…. • Like ants and some bees and wasps from the separate order Hymenoptera, termites divide labour among castes consisting of sterile male and female "workers" and "soldiers". All colonies have fertile males called "kings" and one or more fertile females called "queens". Termites mostly feed on dead plant material and cellulose, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung. Termites are major detritivores, particularly in the subtropicaland tropical regions, and their recycling of wood and plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.
