Termite pest control, Geelong
Left untreated, termites can cause enormous damage to a home or business premises.
There are two main kinds of termites that infest a home or business: subterranean and dampwood. The kind of termite which is invading a home or business will depend on the location and climate of the area. Dampwood termites are a type of termite that, as their name suggests, attack and damage damp or moist wood such as fence posts, the underground parts of trees and branches that have fallen to the ground. Subterranean termites live in the ground and bore into the structure from below. Our clients usually ask us how to kill termites – getting rid of dampwood termites can be as simple as removing the moisture source that’s making wood moist; however, subterranean termites need additional steps to provide a barrier between the ground and the structure to prevent re-infestation.
You may not realise termites are causing damage to your home until the structure has been significantly or permanently damaged.
