Termites in Bellmere
Termites are tiny insects that feed on just about anything that contains cellulose. They might seem small and harmless, but the truth is that they can cause serious damage to homes.
Their colony can have thousands of members and they can eat 24-7. And the worse thing is that they can stay hidden under the surface and only be discovered after the damage was done.
Unfortunately, in Australia 1 in 4 homes is affected by termites. While these sneaky little creatures like to eat silently and not give any warnings, they still leave clues behinds and you can discover them before it’s too late:
- Clicking noises or head banging
- You see flying termites or termite wings
- The timber sounds hollow
- You see small holes in the wood
- The doors and windows are hard to close and open
- You find mud leads or shelter tubes
- The power fails
- You find termite droppings
- The floors, walls or ceiling are damaged
- Roof tiles are damaged
Depending on how large the colony is and on various factors related to your home and its environment, there are various treatments that can be used:
- Termite foam treatment
- Termite dust treatment
- Termite barriers
- Termite traps
How Long Should a Termite Barrier Last?
A barrier provides long term protection and it’s a great way to be protected against these pests without altering the structure of your home in order to apply physical barriers. Most new homes now have termite barriers by default, but old ones don’t.
Physical barriers can provide protection for up to 50 years, while chemical barriers can last up to 8 years. While they keep termites away from your home, physical barriers do not kill an existing colony. So they can still destroy your garden and other items around the home. In this case, you would still need the help of a professional, and we are here to help.
The price for a termite chemical barrier depends on multiple factors, including the size of the property. As you may imagine, larger surfaces need a bigger quantity of substances and more hours of work, so they cost more.
A guarantee is included in the price and the barrier will protect you for the next 8 years. So even though it may seem like a big investment, it’s much cheaper than multiple treatments against termites over a period of 8 years, or multiple repairs to the surfaces destroyed by these insects.
