Termite Pest Control Services


Termites usually only make their physical presence known after summer rains, when swarms of flying alates are drawn to light sources. In most cases, that's an indication that a mature termite colony (white ants) is nearby.

Signs of an infestation: 

  • Harvester Termites form subterranean tunnels which in seriously infected areas become interconnected in a large network. You can identify the nests by holes in the ground surrounded by mounds of soil and patchy sections of lawn.
  • Subterranean Termites cause damage to wood, causing it to sound hollow when tapped. Other signs include mud tubes in crawl spaces, wooden beams and exterior walls, as well as bubbling paint and discarded wings.

Risks: 

  • Harvester termites can do serious damage to lawns in particular and flower beds because they feed on dead and living plants like grasses, leaves, twigs and seedlings and a single queen can lay up to 25 000 eggs per day.
  • Subterranean Termites: Most often, people don’t realise that they have a termite infestation until it is already well established through property damage.

Control Measures: An annual termite inspection performed by a pest control expert can ensure that the infestation is found before it causes any issues.

DIY: Since termites are not typically found in the open, it is important to clean any dark and humid areas in your home thoroughly.
