Belconnen Termite Protection and Control

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 Belconnen and across Canberra, causing structural damage, with repair costs in the tens of thousands.

Whether it’s for your existing property, renovation or building a new home call (02) 6147 2613. Speak to our experts and book a termite inspection or install a termite management system.

What are termites?

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.

They can infest new houses by either flying or transported in wooden furniture. Belconnen is a very transient suburb. Students and sportspeople are constantly on the move due to the University of Canberra, Australian Institute of Sport and Canberra Stadium being so close by. This movement can also disturb nests in soil, forcing termites to seek refuge in your backyard.

Termite damage to home in Belconnen

What damage do termites cause to buildings in Belconnen?

Subterranean termites are the most destructive in buildings in Belconnen, including suburbs such as Bruce, Cook and Hawker. 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 sills 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?

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 Belconnen?

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 Belconnen 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 (02) 6147 2613 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.
