Globally, and not just across Australia, termites now hold the no.1 rank as a leading pest. These almost invisible, tiny and silent creatures bore into the wooden structures and fixtures on your property. You need extensive repairs to fix the damage inflicted by these pests, and these fixes can prove to be very expensive.
Termites do not necessarily come into open. They build massive termite colonies under your house structure without you ever having an inkling that they exist and it doesn’t take long for their population to grow to alarming proportions.
This is why we at Inner West Exterminators find that by the time we are called in to address the problem the infestation might have gotten out of control. If the termites' primary nest is on some other property, it can become challenging to deal with this problem.
Know About Termite Infestation
Termites build a centralised nest from which they bore tunnels under the ground in different directions. In this way, these creatures build secondary nests in various locations. So the first job of our termite professionals is to locate these secondary nests and eliminate the pests. Then they need to identify the location of the primary nest to get rid of the source of these termites.
Locating the central nest can be very challenging because it requires repeated treatments to eliminate them. However, if the infestation is severe, even our termite control experts cannot vouch with certainty that the termites will not reappear on your property. In some cases, multiple treatments are needed to get rid of the problem.
Benefits Of Preventive Pest Control
The first step to prevent termite infestation is to select a reputed company like us to carry out preventive termite control. When you hire us, our team will visit your property at regular intervals to inspect it thoroughly for any signs of the presence of termites. They use specialised termite detection equipment for this purpose to search for any evidence of termite infestation on your property.
If they find even the slightest infestation, they inform you and start the termite control treatment. This timely action has great value in nipping the infestation before it becomes widespread and damages your property. This treatment also includes inspections at regular intervals to ensure that termites do not appear at some other place on your property.
Look For Signs Of Termites On Your Property
Every property owner must be aware of some basic signs of termite infestation to inform pest control professionals about the termite problem. Early intervention helps ensure that the problem will be handled immediately. Look for some of these signs:
- Powdery deposits on wooden floorboards.
