Common Signs of termites in your home
A hollowed-out piece of timber that has been damaged by termites usually sounds hollowed.
Usually from mid-October till early March, established nests disperse young reproductive, winged termites out to start new colonies. On a warm and humid evening hundreds of them will leave the nest at once, so their numbers look like swarms of flying ants. If you spot alates around your home, this could be a sign of termite infestation.
Termites are fragile insects. They don’t have many defences against predators, and require a moist and humid environment to survive> To get around safely when they are not underground or inside a piece of timber, they build leads, small tunnels made of mud and cellulose. The tubes look like little brown straws.
Do you think you have Termites?
If you think you have termites or you have found a suspect skirting board or door frame it is very important not to disturb or break open the damaged timber or workings as the termites will shut down the disturbed area and possibly begin damaging elsewhere in your home.
