Termites are social insects that live in trees, underground or in mounds of caked soil. In nature, termites are a valuable part of the ecosystem, breaking down wood and providing nutrients to other organisms. But some species can infest homes in Adelaide and across South Australia, causing structural damage, with repair costs in the tens of thousands.
Whether it’s for your existing property, renovating or building a new home call (08) 8125 0679. Speak to our experts and book a termite inspection or install a termite management system.
Termites are insects that belong to the group Isoptera. They are sometimes mistakenly called ‘white ants’, but they’re not white or ants. They eat cellulose, which is found in wood, but large infestations have been known to chew through other materials, including electrical wire.
There are over 300 species of termites in Australia, with only a handful causing damage to homes and buildings. Termites are found everywhere in Australia, including our largest cities and industrial areas such as Melrose Park.
What damage do termites cause to buildings in Adelaide?
Subterranean termites are the most destructive in buildings in Adelaide, including suburbs such as Glenelg, Kensington and Semaphore. They live and nest in the soil or sometimes inside a tree or log. They come up out from the soil to get into our buildings. As their body can dry out in the open air, they create mud tunnels on the outside of the building to gain entry.
Once inside the building, worker termites live for four years, eating tunnels through the wooden structure of the house, 24 hours a day. Workers provide food for the rest of the colony. They tunnel within the wood, the damage hidden until the wood is broken. As the wood is weakened, structures within the home, such as skirting boards or window sill can be easily broken. In badly damaged homes, floors start to sag and wood feels hollow when tapped. A munching sound can be heard at night in the walls when the house is quiet.
At this point, repairing a home with this level of infestation can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Where do termites breed?
Flick provides pest control and termite services to homes, body corporates, real estates, commercial properties, schools, government organisations and so much more in Canberra. Our service areas include, but are not limited to, the following suburbs:
Subterranean termites make their nests in or near the ground. They need to be near a source of moisture to survive, such as damp soil, as their body can dry out.
What conditions encourage termite activity in homes across Adelaide?
Termites need wood to eat and water, which helps to keep their nest humid. Homeowners can prevent termites from attacking their homes by blocking termite entry to any wooden parts of the house and removing moisture.
As termites in Adelaide live in soil, homeowners should remove soil from timber structures and make sure the sub floor is well ventilated and dry. Don’t stack firewood up against the house and fix leaking plumbing.
If you suspect you have termites, don’t disturb them. Call (08) 8125 0679 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.

He handled our issue with compassion and honesty and as it turns out, we were wrong in our feedback. Thank you again to Chris and to the serviceman who came out. 5 stars for you both.read more
We have used Flick once before for a termite inspection and everything went smoothly. They got in touch with us for our... 2nd termite inspection a few months ago which we have now been stood up for FOUR times due to clerical errors (not in calendar, booked for wrong year etc). Before this, we had opted to also sign up for the silver package, as far as I was aware, we still had our termite inspection booked following a conversation I had last week to confirm the booking was definitely going ahead for Monday coming. They contacted us and left a message on Friday saying the technician won't be able to make it as they have Covid, according to the office, there was no confirmation of this, instead it was to do with payment confirmation for the package. No apologies for any inconvenience, no acknowledgement that there were any errors, just 'well you didn't confirm payment for the package' which was separate to our termite inspection anyway which required payment at the door. Completely unprofessional, why sign up for a monthly subscription when they can't even turn up on time (well, at all) for a month anyway?read more
