Expert Termite Control Sydney Wide
Termite control protects the value of your personal and commercial properties
Why does Sydney have so many termites, compared to the rest of Australia? It’s mainly about the heat combining with moisture. Termites generally like the climate to have some heat to it, and Sydney has that in spades. Termites also tend to like moisture, as they are susceptible to dying from drought. This means that the warmer spots in Australia are termite havens, and it’s something that property owners need to anticipate and deal with.
How do I know if termites are on my property?
Unfortunately, Sydney provides a wealth of opportunities for several species of termite. Termites are not very easy to detect, as they rarely like to leave the moist tunnels of their nests. This means taking a casual look around your house or garden will not guarantee your safety. Drywood and dampwood termites are usually only visually detectable by the damage they cause, which means it’s already too late. Other termites establish nests in the soil before moving on to your property, meaning that even after they’re eliminated in your house, they can keep coming back.

How Can You Prevent Termite Infestation?
Not just in Sydney, but across all of Australia, termites pose an very real threat to the safety and value of homes and businesses. These silent killers can undermine the structural integrity of your personal property and balloon the budgets of renovations and new construction. To make matters worse, termite damage is rarely if ever covered by insurance. All the while, most Australians don’t have any clear ideas about what they can do to prevent infestations.
Step 1: Assess Your Situation
Of course, before you can prevent termite infestations, you have to make sure you don’t already have them. For that, it’s best to consult an expert, like the staff at Bug Free Pest Control. An inspection can give you a detailed and accurate report of your status. If you’ve got an infestation, you’ll need to have them eradicated before you can prevent future termite problems. If you’re clear of termites, you can move on to prevention methods right away.
Step 2: Check Your Property for Wood
It’s no secret that termites love nesting in wood. Check your garden and surrounding for old tree stumps, misplaced logs and branches, or piles of firewood that are left exposed. If you’re a builder or business owner, make sure that all extra lumber and wooden refuse is disposed of properly, and not left lying about.
Step 3: Treat and Seal Exposed Wood
If you have a wooden fence, shed, or other wood exposed to the elements, be sure to seal and treat it properly. This may mean staining or painting it so as to seal the surface, or you may wish to use a chemical treatment to discourage nesting and infestation.
Step 4: Look for Leaks
Termites are often drawn to moisture, so check your property for leaking pipes, blocked drains, and any place where water gathers and sits. Make sure that irrigation flows as it should, and that no place is unnecessarily soggy or damp.
