Damage Due To Termite Infestation

Termites are not harmful to humans, but they can hurt you financially. Though there are several hundreds of termite species in Australia, hardly 20 of them feed solid wood and cause serious damage to properties.

The vast majority of damage to the properties in Perth and suburbs are caused by a number of subterranean termite species. These termites are responsible for the following ranges of damage that demand white ant barrier and termite protection in Perth:

  • These termites are highly destructive and can even cause structural damage, leading to significant financial loss.
  • Termites also feed on paper, books, filtration systems, swimming pool liners, insulation, and more.
  • The attack of termites on wood can make them rotten and damaged, allowing access for other pests to the interior of your property.
  • Termites can sometimes create irreversible damage. This can happen when you have some wooden furniture or structure with heritage value and attacked by the pests.
  • Termite infestation can mess up the hygiene and maintenance of the property and demand more frequent maintenance. Presence of termite at a property is often considered as lack of maintenance, and people do not feel welcomed to such properties.

Termites live in large colonies and multiply quickly, making them more destructive than you think. Therefore, as soon as you see the signs of termite infestation at your property, we request you to contact us from quick, comprehensive pest control, including termite inspection in Perth.

FAQs

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

Termite infestation is one of the primary reasons for property damage worldwide. The infestation can quickly spread to various areas of your property and become widespread if you ignore the initial signs of infestation.

Should you cover termite holes?

Tom’s Pest Control provides a comprehensive pest management service to our customers. The treatment includes ongoing control measures to prevent future infestation and addressing the damage due to current termite issues. After exterminating termites from your property, our pest technicians apply wood hardener if the holes are small or insignificant. However, if the holes are large or the damage is significant, we either add wood fillers or advise you to repair the damage. Wood fillers are putty-like material that comes in tubes and can quickly be applied to the holes for quick settling.

What is the most effective termite treatment? / What is the best termite treatment?

At Tom’s Pest Control, we focus on offering termite management solutions that give lasting results. It is important to address the factors that encourage termite infestation at your property through preventive treatment measures. Therefore, we complete both wood and soil treatments to kill termites from your space and make them termite resistant. We prefer borate treatment to eliminate termites from woods and avoid future infestation. Similarly, our pest technicians will dig a trench around your property structure, mix eco-friendly termiticide with the soil, and fill the trench with the soil to create a termite barrier around the property structure. If we spot drywood termites at your property, we may also apply fumigation to kill the pest quickly.

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

If you want to control the termites on your own using some natural methods, we recommend you try applying boric acid. It is a white powder and one of the preferred choices by homeowners for eliminating various pests from their environment. You can sprinkle the powder directly into the infested areas to kill the termites. Additionally, you can mix the powder with water and prepare a spray to apply it in the affected areas to address the current issues and prevent future infestation. Remember that boric acid is a poisonous chemical, and you shouldn’t forget to wear masks and goggles while applying. Also, keep children and pets away from the spayed or sprinkled areas.

Is termite damage covered by insurance?

Home insurance programs do not generally cover termite damage. Insurances are designed to address sudden and accidental damage, whereas termite infestation and associated damage happen over a period of a few weeks or months. Importantly, any damage due to animals or insects is not covered by insurance plans. While this is the case, you can still check with your insurance provider to see if they give limited coverage for termite issues. You can also check the terms and conditions of your home insurance to see the inclusions and exclusions.

How quickly does termite treatment work?

At Tom’s Pest Control, we use highly effective termite control methods that start working immediately. You would see dead termites in the infested areas in a day. If your property has extensive termite infestation issues, it may take a few days to eliminate the termite population from your environment. It usually takes a few days for large termite colonies to reach the treatment up to the queen and kill the complete colony. During a termite inspection, if we identify a large number of termite colonies or widespread infestation in a property, we usually recommend complete termite management covering the entire property to get the best results.

How often should you treat your house for termites?

Professional termite control procedures generally give excellent results for a few years. At Tom’s Pest Control, our procedures can protect your property from re-infestation for at least five years. We create tailored termite control plans after analysing the pest issues at your property and provide targeted treatment to get the best results. While performing the terminate control, our technicians will confirm the period to which the treatment is effective. Regardless of this, we request all our customers to complete termite inspection at properties every year to identify any early signs of re-infestation.

Should you not buy a house with termites?

The reality is that every wood structure is prone to termite attack under favourable conditions. However, you need to safeguard yourself from a financial setback while buying properties. Therefore, you should watch out for any signs of termite infestation and call for a professional termite inspection. Based on the inspection findings, you can make a decision and negotiate with the seller for a better deal. The inspection will give you accurate information to treat and repair the property to bring back the property in condition. However, if the property has significant damage, the decision should be based on your capacity to invest time, effort, and money in restoring the property.

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

Termites are a highly destructive pest type and can quickly spread throughout the property if you ignore the infestation. Therefore, you shouldn’t wait for the best time to perform termite control. In many cases, the infestation and damage are extensive than you see outside. Therefore, you should seek professional termite control as soon as you see the signs of infestation.
When it comes to the best time for termite treatment, the pest is usually inactive during winter and becomes active in spring and multiplies in large numbers. Therefore, winter is generally regarded as the best time for a termite inspection, and spring is highly suitable for pest extermination.

Termite treatment in Perth may cost you anywhere from $330 to $3500, depending on the type of treatment you avail.

How long does termite treatment last?

Our termite treatments are targeted and advanced to give you results for at least five years. Based on the level of infestation, we might want to complete both wood treatment and soil treatment to get long-lasting results. Many properties are prone to termite re-infestation after the completion of extermination. Our preventive treatments minimise the risks of re-infestation and assure you more durable results. Regardless of all these, we recommend you get a yearly termite inspection at your property to identify any early signs of infestation. When termites infest a property, it always carries the risks of re-infestation – though at a very minimal level during the initial years of our treatment.

How does termite treatment work?

Our termite control treatments usually start giving results in a day. If your property has multiple termite colonies and complex infestation, it may take a few days to exterminate the termites and make them pest-free completely.
