Termite Treatment Melbourne
Pest Control Melbourne Is Your Termite Expert
Termites are bad news for any property owner. Whether they get into your home or commercial property, we are here to help you get them back out. Termites, also called white ants for their appearance, chew and tunnel through wood, taking up residence in the very walls and floors they are eating. A termite colony can cause massive damage to your property as walls and floors begin to sag, and getting them back out of the walls is no easy task for most homeowners. For termite treatment, your Best Pest Control Melbourne team is equipped with the latest technology and training to make getting rid of termites and keeping them out a breeze.
Signs of Termites
They say that knowledge is power. Knowing the signs of termites gives you the power to stop them through termite treatment and control the moment they appear. Sagging walls and floors are the sign that most people recognise, but by then, they may have done significant damage to your home. So, before you have a major problem, look for these signs:
- Soft spots in your floor or deck.
- Holes in your drywall or exposed wood, interior or exterior – walls, posts, floors, furniture.
- Termite “mud” tubes – a mixture of termite saliva, feces, and dirt they use to cover broken areas. These will often appear near doors or along the foundation.
- Live termites – during the day, some species of termites will swarm near light sources. Termites can have wings, workers are sterile and white, while fertile drones and queens may be larger and darker in color.
- Piles of wings – winged termites will shed their wings during a certain phase in their development. This results in them leaving a pile of small silver wings that look like fish scales near the entrance to their nests.
Termite control takes place in three stages. The first is an inspection. Best Pest Control Melbourne inspectors use the latest technology to find termites wherever they may hide. An inspection will typically take 45 minutes to an hour and a half during which we will conduct a full inspection looking for any signs that you already have a problem. We will check everywhere – inside, outside, outbuildings and crawl spaces. We will then provide you with the termites treatment cost or termite control we recommend based on our inspection.
