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.
