Help! I think I’ve found Termites!
There are a couple of things to consider when you find Termites in your home:
It seems odd but they have probably been there for a while and taking your time to put in place the right program to eradicate them could save you time and money.
2. Don’t disturb them
Disturbing or ‘killing’ them could just send them off to another part of your home. The objective is to eliminate the queen not the few worker termites you can see.
3. Cover them up
If you have broken their ‘lead’ or gallery cover them up with dark tape or a black plastic bag.
4. Call a local professional termite technician
Termites cause millions of dollars a year of damage to homes in Australia and it may take the training and experience of a professional to successfully eliminate them from your home.
