Why Is Termite Treatment Necessary?

Australia is home to nearly 350 termite species, and most of them do not cause any issues to humans or damage buildings. In Victoria, just five termite species are pests and cause damage to buildings.

Before moving onto the termite control treatment, you should know the extent of the damage these termite species can make to your Melbourne property.

  • Termites eat wooden furniture and products and make them look bubbling or wrinkled. If you have some wooden furniture with great heritage value, you can’t easily replace it like other timber products.
  • Termite bites are not usually harmful to humans; however, they can create itchiness and cause an allergic reaction.
  • Termite droppings and nests can create an allergic reaction in people and trigger asthma symptoms.
  • Under damp conditions, the decomposition of wooden structures by termites can lead to mould infestation. Importantly, the mould spores in the air can create widespread health issues for the inhabitants.
  • The presence of termites at a property is always considered as carelessness, and people don’t feel welcomed to such properties.
  • Some termite species are known for even damaging the electric wires and shorting the electrical networks.

How Can You Confirm Termite Infestation At Your Property?

You may not always see termites at your property but should conclude that there is an infestation through the following signs:
  • Damage or hollowing are detected on your wooden furniture or timber products. Termites infest both softwood and hardwood alike.
  • Do you see any damage to your stored items, including books, papers, cardboard boxes, and more? If yes, it could be due to termite or white ant attacks.
  • In many cases, you may notice mud or dirt being deposited in the gaps of skirting or door jambs. It is due to the activity of termites or white ants, and you need the service of a professional termite exterminator.
  • You may also see a large number of winged insects emerging from the newly developed holes near windows or doors as the first evidence of termite infestation at your property.
If you see any of the following signs at your property, contact us immediately for a termite inspection and white ant treatment services in Melbourne.

FAQs

How do I permanently get rid of termites in my house?

To permanently eliminate termites in your home, it is recommended to hire an experienced pest control company. Tom’s Pest Control Melbourne has years of experience in treating termite issues in various properties. When you hire us to treat the termite issue in your home, we remove them effectively using the proper methods and equipment. Also, we make arrangements to prevent them from coming back in the future again. Hiring a professional to undertake the termite pest control issue is the only way to permanently remove them from your home or office.

Should you cover termite holes?

Small holes in your furniture may be an indication of termite infestation. If treated early, termites can be stopped from multiplying and damaging your furniture further. It is recommended to cover the small holes in your furniture using a wood hardener. But if termites have been on your furniture for long, the chances are of the holes being too big to be covered with a wood hardener. In this case, it is recommended to have the wood of the furniture to be repaired or replaced. You can cover the holes in the furniture on your own or have it done by a professional.

What is the most effective termite treatment?

Bait is the most effective treatment for removing termites from your property. When you hire a professional pest control company, they undertake the removal of severe termite issue by installing baits in your property. Termites are tempted to feed on the baits that contain pesticides. Once they eat the bait, they begin to die. Whether the termites eat the bait directly or come in contact with it indirectly through excretes of other mates, they are sure to die. Once their entire colony comes in contact with the bait, the infestation issue will be resolved.

What is the fastest way to get rid of termites naturally?

You can use borax powder to kill termites naturally. Mix the borax powder in water or sprinkle directly on the affected area to kill them naturally. However, it is essential to note that natural remedies only help when the infestation issue isn’t significant. If many termites have attacked your home, natural remedies won’t help. Also, natural ingredients may sometimes cause the termites to leave one place and move onto the other, thus causing more damage. It is recommended to seek professional pest control services to remove termite infestation from your property thoroughly.

Is termite damage covered by insurance?

No. Your home insurance will not cover termite damage. Insurance companies protect against accidental damages. They do not consider termite damage as an accident as it is a common issue property owner faces and can take necessary steps to avoid the problem altogether. To prevent paying a high cost for treating the termite damage in your property, it is recommended to take action when you see the first signs of termite infestation. Hire a professional pest control company to treat the termite infestation in your property or make arrangements to prevent a termite attack.

How quickly does termite treatment work?

Installing baits for termite on your property will take a few hours. However, for the treatment to work and give you results, you may have to wait for a week or so. If there are many termite colonies on your property, you will have to wait until all termites come in contact with the bait directly or indirectly. Once all the termites, including the colony’s queen, feeds on the bait, the pest infestation issue will resolve completely. It is recommended to give the bait treatment a span of 7 to 14 days to show its effectiveness.

How often should you treat your house for termites?

How often you will have to treat your home for termites depends upon the severity of the issue. If you hire a pest control expert to treat the infestation at the beginning stage, the chances of termites being eliminated from your home permanently in the first go itself increases. However, if you have ignored the issue for a long time and the infestation increases, you will require regular pest control sessions to eradicate termites. Liquid termite treatment may last up to 5 years depending on the severity of the issue, and bait systems require check-ups every few months.

Should you not buy a house with termites?

Termite issues are common in Melbourne properties. If you are on a hunt for your dream home and the thought of the home being infested by termites worries you, it is best to get the chosen property evaluated by a pest control expert. At Tom’s Pest Control Melbourne, we offer property inspection services to let you know how severely or mildly a property has been infested by termites. If the infestation issue is low and can be treated easily, you can consider buying that particular house. However, if termites have severely damaged the property, you may have to consider the cost involved in treating and repairing the property. If this cost fits in your budget, you can buy the home without any hesitation.

What is the best time of year to treat for termites?

Termites attack properties all-round the year. It is essential to get your property treated for termite infestation when you see the first signs of it. Waiting for any particular time of the year to get the treatment done can increase the infestation and cause severe damages to your home or office. Once you see signs of termite infestation, get in touch with Tom’s Pest Control Melbourne. We will send our pest control experts to inspect your property. Depending on the level of infestation, our experts will suggest a treatment and implement it at your convenience.

How much does termite treatment cost?

The cost of the termite treatment in Melbourne depends on the type of treatment you are availing of. A termite inspection may cost you between $250 to $350 or more if the property is large. If the issue isn’t much and can be fixed with quick treatments like spraying, foaming or dusting, then the cost of treatment can be between $300 to $900. If the termite infestation level is high, you may require a complete treatment costing anywhere between $1500 to $5000. The cost of the treatment can be best decided after inspection of your property.

How long does termite treatment last?

How long the termite treatment in your property will last depends on its type. If you have a quick fix treatment like spraying or dusting done to destroy a small colony, the chances of the termites returning in a few months increase. In case they return, you will require re-treatment soon. However, if you go for termite barrier treatments or baiting treatments, they will offer long-term protection from termites without the need for re-treatment. Moreover, it is essential to get the treatment done by an experienced and knowledgeable company to avoid re-treatment soon.

How does termite treatment work?

Every treatment works differently to kill the termites living on your property. Chemical treatment involves chemically treating the soil of your building to prevent termites from entering it. The chemical in the soil discourages the termites from attacking your home or office. The chemical acts as a repellent and offer long-term protection from termites. In the case of baiting systems, baits are installed in various corner of your home. Once the termites note these baits and feed on them, they begin to die. When all termites come in contact with the bait directly or indirectly, their colony is destroyed.

What is the best termite treatment?

A pest control expert can decide which termite treatment is best for your home or office. Get in touch with the experts at Tom’s Pest Control Melbourne to book an inspection session for your property. Once our experts examine your property, they will guide you with the best termite treatment for your home or office.
