5 TIPS ON HOW KEEP YOUR PROPERTY SAFE FROM THESES PESKY LITTLE INSECTS

1. CHECK: The exterior of your home, garden, and fences for mud tunnels.

They look exactly like a tunnel or tube but have termites inside!

Termites can live underground but move up from the ground when they are looking for food leaving a mud tunnel behind.

2. DAMAGE: Look out for blistered/bubbled walls or rippled paint on skirting, architraves & window jams

3. LISTEN: It is common to hear the termite at night. Listen out for a ‘scratching’ and ‘tapping’ noise.

4. FLYING TERMITES: Inspect your home and around your property for winged termites. They love our Australian climate! Common entry points = Windows, doors, roof & internal garage step downs.

5. MUD TUDES: Can be found where the ground meets your house or other areas such as trees or shed as they act as possible food source for termites. Termites require a certain temperature & humidity levels to survive therefore the tubes act as a block out to keep cool, dry air which effectively turning your home into an environment where they can thrive.
