If you find Termites PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB THEM!
It is much easier for our experienced technician to track where the termites are coming from, and commence treatment, if they are undisturbed. There are literally many thousands of species of termites in Australia but only a few that will infest your home in NSW.
The most prevalent species found in NSW are Coptotermes Acinacinaformis. Some other species you may find in your home are Schederhinotermes, Heterotermes, or Coptotermes Frenchi. The most aggressive of these are the Coptotermes Acinacinaformis, however all termites if left untreated can do a lot of damage to your home.
The good news is that they are treatable, and may not have caused a lot of damage to your home if detected early.
Regular termite inspections, by an experienced technician can minimise the amount of time termites have been in your home.
The Australian Standards recommend a termite inspection at least every 12 months. Termite preventative treatments are also a very good option. We all insure our homes against theft, fire, water damage etc, yet there is a much higher % of termites infesting your home than any of the previous options occurring. The key is to be informed!
