Are termites dangerous?

Termites are widely regarded as a damaging pest to have in your home or business. Termites (sometimes known as ‘white ants’) can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building if they are not inspected, managed or treated by qualified termite control professionals.

Termites will feed on wood 24 hours-a-day. That means a termite infestation can quickly turn into a major problem. As their presence dates back 120 million years, termites are survivors and extremely difficult to exterminate without professional expertise.

Whether it’s your home or business premises, it’s likely to be your biggest investment in terms of money, sweat and tears, so naturally you want only the best provider for all your termite control needs.

How do termites get into your house?
  • Dry-wood termites 

They enter homes through exposed wood or infested items like wooden furniture.

  • Subterranean termites 

Often enter the home from areas where wood comes in contact with the ground, by squeezing through cracks as small as a business card or by using the mud tubes they construct to travel from their below-ground colonies to infest wood in your home.

  • Formosan termites 

Formosan termites come into homes via wood that touches the soil and by traveling from the ground to wood using their mud tubes. Common entrances include inside homes include openings created by unsealed joints or cracks. Aerial colonies may also infest roofs and other spots high above the ground. These pests flock to sources of wood, especially moist wood and wood located in places containing excessive moisture in the soil where water puddles instead of running off from around the home’s exterior.

Signs of Termite Activity
Blisters in wood flooring

Dark areas or blisters in wood flooring can indicate termites feeding within or below.

Hollowed or damaged wood

Hollowed wood usually has a honeycomb interior and an empty sound.

Evidence of swarms

After swarming, termites usually leave discarded wings. There may also be several black or brown dead termites found.

Mud tubes

Mud tubes the width of a drinking straw connect termites to their food source.

Dry wood termite droppings

Mounds of pellets, resembling sawdust or coffee grounds, can indicate the presence of termite waste.
