What are Termites?

Termites are a type of social insect more closely related to the cockroach than the ant. Termites live in colonies, within nests made most commonly of chewed wood or cellulose. There are a variety of termite species, but they all seek out plant material, including the wood in and surrounding your home. Termites can be responsible for extensive timber damage. For this reason, termites are almost always classified as pests.

Damage Caused by Termites

Termites eat wood, but are also known to snack on paper, books, insulation material, filtration systems and even swimming pool liners. Termite control can be tricky because the insects can often remain concealed for years, gradually weakening the structural integrity of homes and buildings. Termites may also cause damage in the garden by invading woody plants and trees.

Signs of Termite Infestation

Successful termite control starts with you, by identifying the signs of early infestation. Some tell-tale signs of infestation include the emergence of winged insects from the edges of patios and house foundations, and the presence of mud tubes. Termites construct earthen corridors for shelter between their colonies. If these tubes appear on your walls or around your foundations, it's likely you have a termite problem.

Termite Treatment Options

There are two main approaches to termite treatment: liquids and baits.

  • Liquid termiticides: Termiticides have been around for decades, and are a tried and tested form of termite control. These liquids can be applied to soil and surfaces, providing a long-lasting chemical barrier. This prevents termites from entering the building while killing off the termites already inside the building. Soil-applied liquid termiticides have been around for decades. Application of these toxic chemicals should only be done by professionals.
  • Baiting: Termite bait consists of paper, cardboard and wood fibres, treated with a slow-acting lethal chemical. Foraging termites eat the bait and share it within the colony, resulting in a gradual decline. Baits can be used alone or in conjunction with liquid termiticides. Termite baiting can be a complicated procedure, and should only be done by specialists.

Termite Prevention

One of the best methods of termite control is to prevent a pest infestation. By employing the following methods of prevention, you just might save your home from a termite attack and costly treatments.

  • Keep all cellulose-based products away from your house
  • Keep the house and foundation dry by adding caulk around windows and doors.
  • Keep gutters clear of debris
  • Schedule regular home inspections
  • Don't place shrubs and plants near the foundations of your home
  • Avoid using wood chip mulch near the house
  • Use solid concrete where you can instead of wood
