Termite Inspections & Termite Management Systems
These little critters’ only goal in life is to source food and water. They feed on wood and cellulose-based material and operate at all hours, never taking a moment to rest! This is not good news for Australian homes living on the in or on the outskirts of these heavy bush land areas. Although many homes are often pretreated against termites and the havoc that they bring, these nasty little creatures have been known to find ways around it. Treatments usually entail chemical barriers that are placed in-between the soil and concrete area of your home and can be effective at slowing down the destructive process.
If you know that your home is at risk for termite damage, it's highly recommended to implement a management regime to ensure that there’s no activity going on unbeknownst to you. Signs of damage occur when activity has been taking place for a while, so it’s best to avoid this altogether.

Between annual checks, it's important to stay on the alert and know what signs to look out for that may indicate termite activity in the home.
Act Fast If You Detect These Signs
When you knock on your wall, does the wood sound hollow and seem frail to you? Termites attack from the inside out, leaving just a thin veneer behind, a sure indicator that they’re attacking your home.
You should also be on the lookout for remnants of tiny wings or flying termites, as this indicates that the males and females have left the nest to find a suitable mate. Worst case scenario, mating is taking place within your home!
Another sure indicator of termite activity is the mud nests that can be found on the interior or exterior walls. These are otherwise known as ‘mud leads’, which are tunnels that the termites build to protect themselves.

Ways To Minimize The Risk Of Termite Infestation
Termites thrive in moisture-dense environments. For this reason, you can take charge of your home's fate by eliminating as much moisture where possible. This entails good quality drainage mechanisms such as piping and drain-gutters to help divert any water away from the foundation of the structure of the home.
It's suggested that you ensure that as little shrubbery, vines, and other flora are growing over your home’s structure as possible, covering key ventilation points. Furthermore, you can check that no old roots or tree stumps are growing close to or underneath the structure.
Where possible, eliminating as much wood contact with the soil is going to be a game-changer as it makes a point of entry to the delicious wood a lot more strenuous and out of the mite's direct pathway.
To avoid massive and costly problems, implementing regular annual inspections is always going to be a must. Ensuring that you have trusted specialists that you can rely upon will serve to streamline the process, making it painless and hassle-free.
