Many people fail to realise, until it’s too late, the extensive amounts of damage that termites cause to modern homes. Since they remain concealed in the wood, and enter your home through underground leads, it is often not until the damage is extensive, and timbers collapse, that you realise you have a problem.
Termites, or white ants as they are commonly known, cause serious structural damage to timber and other cellulose based products. The most common species, Coptotermes acinaciformis, is in fact the most destructive termite species in the world.
Studies have revealed that on average 1 in every 5 homes are attacked at some stage during their lives by this ruinous insect. In some cases it can be as high a 1 in 3. Clearly it is important to take every action possible to prevent their menace.
The most commonly encountered termites are subterranean termites. Living in large underground nests they travel through the soil and then build mud tunnels to gain access to the timber in your home. Once inside, the worker termites chew up the timber to feed the nest. This frequently leaves timbers hollow inside and structurally unsound.
