Darwin Termite Protection and Control

Termites are insects that live in trees, underground or in mounds of caked soil. They are very small and almost invisible to the human eye. In nature, termites have an important purpose in the ecosystem, they break down wood which provides nutrients to other organisms. However, some species can infest homes in Darwin and across the Northern Territory causing costly structural damage.

Whether it’s for your existing property, renovating or building a new home call (08) 8911 0729. Speak to our experts and book a termite inspection or install a termite management system.

What are termites?

Termites also mistakenly called ‘white ants’, but they’re not white or ants. Termites are insects that 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, especially tropical areas like Darwin and surrounding areas.

What damage do termites cause to buildings in Darwin?

Subterranean termites are the most destructive in buildings in the Northern Territory, including suburbs such as Palmerston, Nightcliff and Howards Springs. 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 work together to form colonies and consume 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 windowsill can be easily broken. In extremely damaged homes, floors start to sag and wood feels hollow when tapped.

At this point, repairing a home with this level of infestation can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Where do termites breed?

Termites need to be near a source of moisture to survive, such as damp soil, to protect their body from drying out. To ensure moisture, subterranean termites make their nests in or near the ground.

What conditions encourage termite activity in homes across Darwin?

Termites require wood to eat and water to keep their nest humid. Homeowners in Darwin can prevent termites from attacking their homes by blocking termite entry to any wooden parts of the house and removing moisture, such fixing leaking taps or pipes and ensuring firewood is not stacked against the home.

As termites in Darwin live in soil, homeowners should remove soil from timber structures and make sure the sub floor is well ventilated and dry.

If you suspect you have termites, don’t disturb them. Call (08) 8911 0729 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.
