Blue Mountains Termite Protection & Control

Blue Mountains Termite Protection and Control

Termites are insects that live in trees, underground or in mounds of caked soil. They are quite small and almost naked to the human eye. In nature, termites are a valuable part of the ecosystem, breaking down wood and providing nutrients to other organisms. However, some species can infest homes in Blue Mountains and across Sydney, causing costly structural damage.

Whether it’s for your existing property, renovating or building a new home call (02) 8381 1773. Speak to our experts and book a termite inspection or install a termite management system.

What are termites?

Termites are insects and 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 mountain ranges like the Blue Mountains and surrounding areas.

What damage do termites cause to buildings in Blue Mountains?

Subterranean termites are the most destructive in buildings in Western Sydney, including suburbs such as Glenbrook, Blaxland, Springwood, Wentworth Falls and Katoomba. 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 homes. 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, termites forming large colonies and working diligently, consuming wooden structures from within. Damage is usually hidden until the wood is knocked. 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?

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 Blue Mountains?

Termites need wood to eat and water, which helps to keep their nest humid. Homeowners in Blue Mountains can prevent termites from attacking their homes by blocking termite entry to any wooden parts of the house and removing moisture.

As termites in Blue Mountains 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) 8381 1773 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.
