Termite Swarming Season
Here’s what can you do to limit an infestation:
– Kept the perimeter of your property and home clear of obstacles and debris to allow for ongoing visual inspections.- Remove woodpiles, tiles, bricks etc. that are stacked up against the external walls of your home.
– Limit and stop water sources around your home such as leaking taps, plumbing leaks, water dripping from your air-conditioning etc
– Upgrade your Home Protection plan to include an annual timber pest inspection to ensure any termite infestations are detected early and avoid costly problems.
