Pest Control in Everton Hills / Stafford Heights for Termites / White Ants
Case Study; Suspicious damage and termite / white ant activity found inside Everton Hills home
The owner of the home in Everton Hills had been hearing strange noises in their walk-in
wardrobe, of which they had not taken too much notice until there became signs of bubbling paint on the wardrobe door frame. Fortunately the owner had been previously informed in the past that if there were any signs like bubbling paint, it would most likely mean that termites / white ants were present.
It is essential to leave the areas undisturbed until a termite management professional could examine the extent of the infestation.
Immediately the owner called MacCotter Termite & Pest Control and a complete termite inspection on the property was booked. It is important that if there is any suspicion of termites or evidence of termites found that a termite / white ant inspection is done as soon as possible.
Inspection of the Home
The building was a single story brick veneer home. It was found that termites / white ants had infested
the walls between the walk-in wardrobe and nearby bathroom ensuite. Termite / white ant damage was found in the timber door frame, timber skirting boards, roofing timbers, and even the (timber) carpet smooth edge.
All buildings are susceptible to termite attack as termites / white ants will attack most timbers they have access to. Under the Australian Standards 3660.2 (AS3660.2) annual termite inspection are required for all buildings and homes.
If left unchecked termites / white ants cause devastating and extensive damage to the home, with the addition of costly treatments and repair costs.
White Ant / Termite Treatment in accordance with AS 3660.2
Under the AS 3660.2 the termite infested areas were treated, and long term termite protection was recommended to protect the home from possible future termite attacks. Annual termite / white ant inspections are essential in order to find termites before an infestation can occur.
Licensed termite management professionals have the skills and expertise to effectively carry out termite inspections and treatments.
