Are termites attracted to moisture? They most certainly are. Damp decaying timbers provide a readily available food source.
Termites are a highly secretive and destructive pest, with one in three homes having been affected by termite damage. Any structure containing wood is at risk of subterranean termite infestation.
The effects of La Nina weather pattern have caused a significant excess of moisture to lie in the grounds of most homes. A build-up of moisture in the surrounding soil of your home creates conditions favourable to breeding and attack.
As termites can travel up to 500m underground from the nest, our current recommendation is for annual termite inspections. If your property is high risk, then consider booking in bi-annual pest inspections.
It takes the trained eye and years of experience for a professional pest technician/inspector to locate the signs of these infestations.
