With the ever increasing expansion of residential development into Australia’s outer suburbs – experts say there is a current plague of termite attacks on Australian homes.
Last year’s wet spring made for ideal conditions for termite infestation, conditions which have reportedly lead to a plague of the wood-chewing insects.
Termite experts are seeing hungry termites making a meal of new homes being built on what was previously undisturbed termite territory – and often this is happening in the outer suburbs.
While all suburbs in Canberra should be on the lookout for termites – it’s the outer suburbs , which included suburbs within 15 to 20 kilometres from the CBD, like Tuggeranong areas of, Wanniassa, Kambah, Richardson, Theodore, Isabella Plains, Isaacs and Calwell that need to remain vigilant and have regular termite inspections.
The leafy inner suburbs of O’Connor, Turner, Ainslie, Campbell and many more of those older suburbs are probably the highest risk of all.
However termite attacks don’t discriminate so even home owners in any new developments like Macgregor, Dunlop, Lawson, Wright, Forde, Gungahlin and Coombs should be inspecting their property at least 12 monthly.
