DIY Termite Check (Noosa & Districts)

You can Take Control over the termite risk to your home.

Don’t let termites into your home. They cause more costly structural damage to homes in Australia then Fire & Flood.

The ‘Foot print’ of any home is huge (From a termites point of view) and it takes only the tiniest gap in your termite defense system to let them in.

We see people spending thousands every year on (For the most part) preventable termite damage.

Why RISK Termites causing damage to your home?

For most of us our home is our biggest lifetime investment, and although it make perfect sense to plan to keep termites out, most home owners don’t. Unfortunately, ignoring the risk doesn’t mean your home is not at risk

Taking logical steps to reduce termite risk protects your family and your finances.

What to look for?

For most of the time Termites remain unseen, travelling under ground, within the heartwood of trees and deep in the timber structures of homes.

  1. ‘Flying Ants’
    1. When the atmospheric temperature and humidity are just right we experience ‘Flying Ants’. These are the young breeding termites (Budding King’s and Queens) breaking away from their established colony to start their own colony.
  2. Termite mudding (See Termite Infestation)
  3. “Paper thin timber” skirting timbers, window frames etc
  4. Termite mud nests in yard or trees
  5. Suspicious mud structures in roof void or subfloor
  6. See our DIY Termite plan
