What Attracts Termites?
Dead Trees and Stumps
Branches and Leaves
While many things can attract termites to your house, most are linked to termites’ love for moist, wooden environments. There are some species of termites, called dry wood termites, that can survive even in places with low humidity levels. Because of this, it is essential to keep any wooden materials around your home clean and dry. If you are concerned that this might not be enough, a termite repellent can help you to stay on the safe side.
If some parts of your house are already infested, or you suspect that they are, call for professional help as soon as you notice. A building inspector will help you to identify where there might be an existing colony, and where there are risks of infestation. Having a professional termite inspection done is one of the most effective ways to prevent and manage termite infestations in the home. If you live around Adelaide, call us today, and we will arrange a building inspection for you!
