Termites, the bane of all homeowners! Who doesn’t dread the thought of these secretive little wood-munchers silently tunnelling into the vital timber framework of their homes? Termite attacks on buildings usually stem from a nest underground. The pests build mud galleries to hide and enable them to travel unseen over walls or piers to attack timber and timber products in buildings.
The eradication and control methods used for termites (white ants) have advanced markedly over the past decade with high rates of success, given that treatment solutions are readily available on the market. However, what you should do if you think you have termites in your home is to call in a local specialist – and if you’re located in the Geelong region, contact Acacia Pest Control service.
Are there Termites in the area?
In short: YES INDEED!
Where are termites?
I get asked this question quite a lot: Termites are found in every mainland state. Tasmania does have grass eating termite species but these are generally not invasive into homes.
