Termites are both incredibly destructive, and hard to detect. They are a common pest in homes, as they are drawn to wood, as it is a frequent construction material in Australia and the rest of the world.
Termite colonies, if left untreated, can consume up to 5 grams of wood per day. If your home or roof is built out of a timber structure, you could be placing yourself at significant risk of, at best, hefty repairs costs, and at worst, serious structural integrity failure. Such damage can drop the value of your home by up to 25%, not to mention put your family and possession in danger. Defend yourself against termites by turning to the pest control specialists in Adelaide Hills. Deterant Pest Control deliver personalised termite treatment plans, to ensure that we tailor our response to your specific problem, and deliver the ideal finished result, the first time around.

Many home owners like to bury their heads in the sand, and hope that termite infestations are simply something that happens to other, unlucky people. In reality, 1 in 3 homes are likely to fall victim to infestation at least once throughout their history. The issue is that they leave few signs of their presence until you just happen upon them, or their damage makes itself evident – which isn’t always covered by your insurance.
If you remain proactive about protecting your home, there are subtle differences you will notice in your wood that will suggest termites. As they eat out and hollow timber, beams will start to look bubbly or wrinkled. There will also be ‘tunnels’ in which they use to move around inside. Try looking inside wood-dense areas, such as skirting boards and door frames.
