IAs the weather in Perth warms up flying termites, known as alates, are on the move.
The alates await the sunny spring weather so they can emerge to find a new locations & establish brand new termite colonies.
The risk of termites should not be underestimated. Of all the pest we are likely to encounter, termites have by far the greatest capacity to damage our homes!
If you find termites in or near your home, do not disturb them or spray with any form of home pest control products, as that might hinder effective treatment by a pest control professional.
If termites are inside your home, the matter will almost certainly require urgent attention. However, if termites are located outside the house and there is an up to date termite barrier in place around the property, there may not be much or anything to worry about.
It is always recommended upon finding termites to contact a Pest Control professional for help & advice.
To protect your home from termites we strongly recommend having a termite barrier installed and regular inspections. In addition to this there are some simply things you can do around the home to reduce the risk of termite attack (see below):
Attachments to buildings
While your house will probably have a termite barrier installed, your shed and other outbuildings almost certainly won’t. There is little or nothing to prevent termites from attacking stored wooden items within outbuildings or the structure itself if it’s made of wood.
