How to identify termite activity
Termites can be hard to spot because most of the activity happens beneath the surface of the property. The earlier termite activity is discovered the easier it is to resolve, and the longer they are left the more serious the structural damage to your property.
Signs of termite activity may include;
- Unusual deposits of mud outside, for example on timbers or timber fences. This is known as termite mudding.
- Mud inside a cupboard, on or around skirting, on doorframes, on the architraves to windows or doors.
- Skirtings crumbling if something bumps into them, like a vacuum cleaner or piece of furniture
- Wall paint blistering
If you see any of these symptoms, or live in a street or suburb that has termites you should have us assess whether they’ve started to eat their way into your home.
