Did you know that termites are particularly active in hot, wet areas such as North Qld?
Termite infestations cause millions of dollars in damage each year to timber in homes across Australia. It is vital that a termite management system is implemented to help minimise the risk of termite damage.
Unfortunately the installation of a termite barrier will not stop termite activity from occurring on the site. Most infestations occur at the perimeter of the building and usually result from owners being unfamiliar with “good practice”. For example, an existing termite management system can be bridged by building garden beds or placing wood chips up to the house, or by attaching unprotected structures such as carports, pergolas and fences to the house. Regular inspections should be completed to ensure termites have not bridged the barrier.
Here we have Flick Pest Control completing a termite protection to all slab penetrations on one our of commercial sites in Townsville.
