All about termites
As the specialists in termite control, we know a lot about termites. Alternatively known as ‘white ants’, there are over 2000 species of termites to contend with. However, only 300 of these are found in Australia, with the Coptotermes Acinaciformis taking the cake for most common—accounting for 70% of structural damage in Australia. Based on their preferred living conditions, there are three categories which represent termites in Australia: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. A single colony will usually consist of over one million termites, and they’re capable of ploughing through the wall and roofing timbers of a home within three months. Despite looking similar to ants, termites are actually closely related to cockroaches. They have strong survival instincts and will generally abandon an area if the colony has been disturbed.

How do you know if you need termite control?
It’s hard to know when to intervene with termite control and termite inspection Adelaide, and truthfully, most home owners won’t even know their home has been affected until it’s too late. That’s why it’s important to put preventative measure in place for your peace of mind! However, for the sake of monitoring pest activity in your home, here’s a few of the signs to look for:
- Hollow sounding timber—termites eat from the inside-out, so listen for unusual echoing.
- Clicking sounds—termites make a very quiet ticking sound when they eat.
- Frass and discarded wings—frass is essentially termite droppings, which looks like a dark powdery substance. They also shed their wings as part of their reproductive cycle.
- Jamming doors and windows—the moisture termites produce when eating or tunnelling can lead to wood expansion.
