Termite Issues in Australia

Termites are a highly destructive pest and a major cause of economic damage to homes around Australia. One in three homes in Australia has been affected by termite damage. There are hundreds of termite species around Australia, although only a small number of these species are responsible for structural damage to our homes.

Although the coastal belt and northern parts of Australia are generally regarded as the highest-risk areas for subterranean termite infestation, economically significant species, which damage timber, are found throughout mainland Australia. In reality, any structure containing wood is at risk of subterranean termite infestation whether in the city, suburbs or country, unless protective measures are taken.

Conducive conditions around your home

There are many conditions, which may be present around your home, that may be conducive to termite activity. Water and leaks associated with faulty plumbing, broken roof tiles, leaking shower recesses and air conditioning drainage can all contribute to a build-up of moisture in the surrounding soil, creating perfect conditions for termites.

Trees, shrubs and gardens adjacent to your home can result in an excess in roots, moisture and other organic matter, allowing termites to establish and gain access undetected into the foundations, expansion joints or other concealed entry points. It is recommended that your home is inspected annually by a pest management professional. This not only identifies any termite activity in the structure, but will also ensure that any conducive conditions are identified so they can be rectified to reduce the risk to your home.
