Termitester2

Termites are often called “white ants” in Australia Subterranean termites or “white-ants” are a highly destructive timber pest, causing major structural timber damage to domestic and commercial buildings in Western Australia.
terA major economic pest: Recent industry surveys suggest about one third of all unprotected properties in Western Australia are subject to attack by subterranean termites. Most of the latest technology for termite control products comes from the USA where termite control is a US$5 billion industry. Other major termite control markets include Australia, Japan, South East Asia, China and the south of France. Most homes are at risk in Western Australia in built-up urban areas, especially if well established gum trees are nearby the building – within a 100 metre radius. The problem is getting worse: Severe termite damage to Australian homes is on the increase since the removal in 1995 of the long lasting soil barrier chemicals; the more common use of softwood building and other landscaping timbers that termites find irresistible, such as, hardwood timber mulch and railway sleepers on the ground. Other important factors promoting termite colony development include automatic watering systems, landscaping and maintenance that encourage termite activity and inappropriate building design that allow hidden termite entry into a building.
