Safeguard Your Property with the Best Termite Protection Services in Melbourne
Did you know termites cause more damage and destruction in Australian homes every year than natural disasters like floods, storms and fires combined? A single termite may not pose any danger or menace, but an entire colony can damage your property within a short time and dig deep holes in your pockets for its repair.
These critters are also known as white ants, and often referred to as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected.
Some of the common places where a termite infestation can occur in Melbourne are as follows:
- Soil fill
- Old building materials
- Cavity walls
- Hidden voids under buildings
- Timber false floors between concrete floors
- Under concrete slabs in patios
- Imported oak
- Tree Trunks like eucalyptus, peppercorns and elms
AS3660 protection of buildings from subterranean termites provide a minimum guideline for homeowners, builders and pest control service companies on termite control and protection in Melbourne. At Tradie Team Pest Control, we follow procedures that are strictly administered by the government authorities.
Termite removal is challenging as they are hardly visible. These destructive pests built tunnels and work 24 hours a day; however, an infestation can be prevented by thorough inspection.
CSRIO and the Australian standards suggest that termite inspection and possible eradication should be done annually to avoid severe damage to property.
At Tradie Team Pest Control, our experts have a clear understanding of where to look for possible termite infestations. Our inspection generally lasts for about 60 minutes, depending on the size of the property. A visual inspection of common areas of the home, sub-floor area, roof cavities and other accessible parts can determine termite infestation. Some of the other signs that suggest an inspection are as follows:
- Soil/mud around wall edges
Termites die if exposed to sunlight and therefore they dig and tunnel their way. If you find soil or mud appearing around the wall edges at floor level or door gaps, then there are chances of termite infestation.
- Damage on stacks of books or cardboard
The only source of food for termites is cellulose. Cellulose is found in paper, cardboard, grass and wood. Therefore, if you notice a stack of damaged books or any cardboard boxes filled with paper bear damage on them, then it’s time to call Tradie Team Pest Control.
- Alates in the air
The termites are divided into various castes. The flying termite or alate is the reproductive caste. This caste often comes out from their cracks and looks for new colonies to populate. If you observe alates in the air, its an indication of termite colonies in that particular area.
- Hallowed Out Timber
Termites work non-stop, so if you observe damage or any hollowed section of timber in wooden floorings, doors, sub-floorings or so, it is an obvious sign of termite infestation.
Post-inspection, we provide our clients with a detailed report, the very next day stating the intensity of the infestation and the best possible solutions to eradicate and protect their property from these nasty pests.
