Termites can be extremely destructive when they invade your home. Termites love to feast on the timber your home is constructed with and, if left unchecked, can cause tens of thousands of dollars of repairs. Regular termite inspections are a must and should be seen as an additional insurance policy.
How will you know when to call the inspection experts? Well, there are certain tell tale signs of a termite infestation. For instance, you may notice little heaps of wood powder that look very fine. This should tell you that you have a big problem. The wood powder heaps are caused by the wood being chewed away by the termites.
Furthermore, you should also check if your timbers feel hollow. The best place to feel this is door posts and window frames.
Another undeniable sign is the mud trails made by the termites. If you are walking around the house and see mud tunnels anywhere close to or on the exterior of your home you should call us right away.
