What to do if you have found termites / white ants
from Coolum Beach, Caloundra, Nambour, Brisbane, Brisbane North, Brisbane South, Gold Coast and Ipswich Town and Country.
Firstly, the main thing to do is not to panic and do not disturb them in any way. Please do not use any sprays or chemicals near the active termites as this will only encourage them to move away from this area into another area and they may not be so easily found.
If the termites / white ants are discovered in the window or door frame, seal off any holes with masking tape or a similar product. Termites / white ants will move to another part of the house and make it harder for the professional treatment designed to eliminate the colony.
If they are discovered outside in a stump, tree or even in the bark or soil cover them up as soon as possible. Damp soil , grass or even a damp rag basically anything that will seal off the termite/white ants so they dont move to another area in the yard. Once the area has been sealed the termites / white ants think the danger has gone and they are more likely to stay in this area.
Termites / white ants are similar to earth worms in that they need to stay moist and out of the sunshine. They can not survive long in dry conditions. This is why you will see their mud leads or tunnels as they provide moisture and shelters them from the light.
Secondly, call a specialist termite / white ant professional.
It is advised that you call a termite / white ant firm that uses the latest technology. The Termatrac T3i is a radar, moisture and thermal detection device that can help establish the extent of the infestation.
