TERMITES in Australia

Subterranean termites are a highly destructive timber pest, causing major structural timber damage to domestic/commercial buildings in Australia.

Recent industry surveys suggest that about one third of all unprotected properties are subject to attack by termites. Most homes are at risk … especially if well established gum trees are nearby the building – within a 100 metre radius.

Termites live in the Ground and can eat Your house down ….

  • Termites are known to destroy the wall and roofing timbers of a home within 3 months of construction.
  • Termites cause more damage to homes in Australia than fire, floods, storms and tempest, combined.
  • Termites occur throughout Queensland, with a high incidence of attack in virtually all urban areas.

For more information about termites in Queensland, visit Queensland Government’s resource on termites.

PLEASE NOTE: Severe termite damage to a building is not uncommon. To compound the problem, your Home or Building Insurance Policy will NOT usually cover the repair costs of any timber damage caused by termites.

Common Belief:

“If you have black ants, you won’t have termites”

COMPLETELY UNTRUE

Termites are small in size and soft bodied insects. They build a central colony nest from which they construct underground tunnels that radiate in a 100 metre radius from a central colony nest in search of a timber (cellulose) food source.

 

Termites travel in humidified mud-shelter tubes or galleries…

Termites travel in these mud shelter tubes as protection from predators, sun-burn, dehydration and to maintain a high humidity environment which is essential for their survival.Termites are highly secretive, preferring to enter a building through areas inaccessible to inspection, such as, through in-fill patios, fire heaths, expansion joints and cracks in concrete slab (on-ground) flooring.Termites can pass through a 2 mm crack or an expansion joint (eating through the rubber compound) between adjoining concrete on ground flooring. They can also travel under parquetry and floor tiles to get to the wall framing timbers.

 

TERMITE TIPS

  • Don’t affix trellises, fencing or landscaping to exterior walls.
  • Keep mulch, wood debris, timber or firewood away from your home.
  • Trim all trees, bushes and other dense vegetation close to the house and remove dead trees or stumps in the yard.
  • Repair leaking taps and water lines, both indoors and outdoors and ensure watering systems are not in close proximity to foundations.
  • Fix leaky roofs, gutters and downpipes and don’t allow leaves to accumulate in gutters and drains.
  • Ensure air conditioning condensate and hot water system overflow water is directed away from the foundations.
  • Keep all sub-floor areas clean, dry and well ventilated.
  • Seal all cracks and holes in your home’s foundation, which may provide a handy access point for termites.
