Subterranean termites or “White-ants” are a fascinating yet highly destructive timber pest, causing major structural timber damage to domestic and commercial buildings in the Inner West Sydney Region.
Tiny entry points Termites can enter a building through a 2mm crack in concrete slab on-ground flooring and eat through the rubber compound between adjoining concrete slabs. Termites can travel under parquetry and floor tiles to get to wall and roofing framing timbers.
A Major economic pest – 1 in 4 properties in the Inner West Sydney Region have a termite problem, that’s why its mandatory for homebuyers to get a pre-purchase Timber Pest Inspection Report.
Termites live in the ground and can eat your house down
Subterranean Termites are known to destroy the wall and roofing timbers of a home within 3 months of construction
Subterranean Termites cause more damage to homes in Australia than fire, floods, storms and tempest, combined.
Due to their social and feeding habit, they can go unnoticed while attacking your property.
While it is hard to tell at first look whether or not a structure is infested by termites, having regular timber pest inspections done your property will prevent substantial damages.
Your best protection is a soil treatment around the base of the building i.e., Termite Preventive Barrier
Installation of chemical barrier systems will also hold off these unwanted guests from entering and invading your property.
CONSUMER NOTE: Your Home and Building Insurance Policy will NOT cover the repair costs of termite infested structural and decorative timbers.

SERVICE ABOVE AND BEYOND
In my role as Secretary for the Owners Corporation of a large 52 unit complex in Blacktown, consisting of three blocks, I have dealt with Quepest for the past 5 years overseeing the Cleaning, Maintenance and Pest Control.
During my time as Secretary, the team at Quepest have been very professional and supportive, keeping me fully informed about any cleaning or maintenance issues associated in each of the blocks and the common areas reporting and supplying photos of any areas needing attention.
This has allowed the Owners Corporation to act promptly in restoring services. They have also provided pest control to individual unit owners who speak highly of their personalized service. Phone calls are returned and emails are answered promptly.
There is a sense of pride in the team who carry out the works, nothing is ever a trouble and I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Quepest Control Services.
