Mackay Termite Protection and Control
Beautiful Mackay doesn’t just attract tourists. The warmth and sunshine also attract termites. Termites cause extensive structural damage to buildings throughout northern Queensland, with 1 in 3 buildings suffering termite attacks in Australia.
Even coastal communities need to be proactive when it comes to termites. With 44 percent of residents in Mackay in rental accommodation, it’s important that you look after your investment with a termite management plan.
Whether it’s for your existing property, renovating or building a new home call 1300 270 019. Speak to our experts and book a termite inspection or install a termite management system.
Why termites are so destructive in homes around Mackay
There are over 300 species of termites in Australia, but only some cause damage to buildings in Mackay.
Drywood termites, found mostly in Queensland are particularly damaging and can live without soil access. However, subterranean termites need soil access and are more widespread. Both types of termites tunnel into wooden beams in the building, weakening supports and the overall structure of your premise.
Timber can sound hollow when tapped and floors can sag. You may notice paint or plaster chipping off the building. Skirting boards or window frames are easily damaged. The outside of the timber may look fine. But the inside is weekend due to termites tunnelling through the wood.
Surprisingly, most homes in Queensland aren’t insured for termite damage. While insurance companies may insure your home for animal damage, such as a bird in the house, insect and rodent damage is very rarely covered. Homeowners usually don’t find out until they try to lodge a hefty claim.
Why you need a termite management plan for your investment
Tenants are not likely to ask for pest control unless it impacts their life, such as rodents or ants in the kitchen. Termites are very hard to detect. If your property has new tenants every six months to a year, they may not notice the subtle differences around the house from termite destruction.
If termites damage the floor, it may start to sag. New tenants won’t notice the floor sagging, or may put it down to wear and tear. Termite damage occurs slowly over a long time, so it’s not until a skirting board or window sill breaks easily that the full extent of the damage is revealed.
If termites are in your investment property, don’t rely on the bond to cover the treatment. Drywood termites can cost $30 000 to treat, which the Queensland government recently stopped financing.
Pest control may be a tax deduction. As you don’t have your eye on your investment regularly, book a regular termite inspection for your peace of mind. The best treatment against termites is proactive management before the damage is done.
If you suspect you have termites, don’t disturb them. Call 1300 270 019 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.
