Think You Might have Termites?
Act now before damage can spread
Signs of a termite infestation vary depending on the level of damage caused, but all should be taken extremely seriously. During the breeding season, you may be able to see a swarm of termites emerging from a specific site, and you may find small termite wings left behind as they shed their wings when they find a new location for the colony.
Another common sign of termites are brown mud tubes on the interior or exterior of walls. These are known as termite ‘mud leads’ and are tunnels that they build to protect themselves, as subterranean termites are unable to survive in the open air. This is a sure sign of infestations, and you should call Flick immediately on 13 14 40. You can also test by knocking on wood around your home, specifically skirting boards and door/window frames. If it sounds hollow or there are sagging floors, this is a major indication of a termite problem.

Questions about termite habits or behaviour?
Often referred to as white ants, termites are insects which devour wood and most cellulose-containing materials like cardboard, paper, etc. There are significant variations in the colour, shape, and size of termites depending upon the species, but they are all characterised by certain similarities. These critters fall under the order Isoptera and are closely related to cockroaches on the evolutionary scale. Despite their name white ant, they bear no relation to the ant family and wreak havoc on a majority of Australian homes. The key to lowering the cost of termite-related repairs is to conduct frequent termite inspections to detect problems early.
