About Termites (White Ants)

Termites, also known as white ants, are small soft bodied insects – about half the size of a match-head. It is estimated that they cause more damage to homes in Australia than from fire, floods and storms combined. The damage is so great that termite damage is not covered by insurance – meaning that it’s a problem that you need to keep on top of with Termite Pest Control.

Rather than fast and furious, termites work slowly and silently as they eat away your home or other property. Whether old or new, damage is done without you realizing it.

Recent industry surveys suggest that almost all unprotected properties in Australia are subject to attack by termites. Severe structural timber damage by white ants to Australian homes is on the increase due to more homes being built of materials and designs that encourage hidden termite entry and infestation.

Termites can cause long-lasting structural damage to your house that can be incredibly expensive to fix – so it’s important to make sure you get rid of the problem before it gets out of control.

Termite Facts  

 • Industry surveys suggest about one third of unprotected properties in Western Australia are subject to attack by subterranean termites.

• White Ants cause more damage to homes in Australia than fire, floods, storms and tempest, combined.

• Termites occur throughout Western Australia, with a high incidence of attack in virtually all urban areas.

The standard Home and Building Insurance Policy will NOT cover the repair costs of termite infested structural and decorative timbers.

• The worker termites build mud-tubes over hard objects.

A termite colony nest may contain more than a million termites, consisting of a queen, king, young immature nymphs, workers, soldiers and winged reproductives (called alates).

 • The worker termites are blind and forage in a largely random criss-cross fashion looking for new timber food sources. However, they may encounter and follow moisture zones and trail along solid objects, such as, the concrete slab edge of your home.
