Termites damage takes time, so be on the look-out for the following signs, a sure sign your home needs our help.
Termites don’t just eat your wood, they live in it. They will bores tiny holes in wooden planks, joints and supports, eating as they make pathways between your home and their nests. Over a period of time, they will hollow out wood until there is only a thin outer layer, leaving nothing but their so called mud – a mixture of faeces, saliva and dirt. Wood that they have been eating through may sound hollow when knocked, and the layers of this mud inside can make it feel soft or spongy. If walls or floors are starting to sag, it may be a sign you need a termite inspection.
That same mud that makes your wood feel spongy will also be used to create covered walkways when wood gives out. Termites need moisture, and so open air in their tunnels can drive them out. If you see what looks like tubes of mud growing near doors, through crawl spaces or along outside walls you may have a nearby nest. Those tubes connect the nest to their source of food- your home. Since disturbing termite nests can cause them to scatter, making it harder to find and treat, if you see mud tubes, call a professional right away. Pest Control Melbourne’s highly trained technicians can find the nests without disturbing them during a full termite inspection, allowing us to treat them right at the source and eventually conduct termite removal process.
Termite Inspection Melbourne team are trained to look for the tiny holes they leave along exterior walls and in furniture. Termite damage begins with a series of fine holes bored into wood surfaces, the beginnings of the vast connected tunnels they will eat into your walls over time.
Some species of termites are subterranean, and if your home isn’t properly protected, they can find ways underground where we can’t see. However, every type of termite leaves evidence. It may be their faeces, which resembles wood pellets, or the wings that reproductive termites leave when they prepare to mate. No matter what the evidence is, the Pest Control Melbourne team will find it during termite inspection. When termites begin to mate, they will shed their wings, which may look like fish scales appearing in the corners of your home.
