Types of Timbers termites eat

Termites have been known to eat treated timber, “Hardwood Timber” and Cypress pine. Don’t be fooled, termites don’t give an inch and they only need millimeters to gain entry.

Hardwood timber to some termites maybe like eating a well done steak, and pine eating a rare steak … just as easy to eat when hungry, it just may take little longer to chew.

The Pest Company offer Termite Inspections and Termite Protection

 

Understanding the property’s construction type is how we decide on the best option for Termite protection, especially in Brisbane Suburbs where we have a range of different types of construction. The old Queenslander home built on steel posts is great till such time the undercroft is built in without termite management. We also deal with new architectural designed homes that are split level which also pose a threat.

Not every home is the same, in the Building and Construction industry we see many different types of construction methods used, some methods make protecting homes from termites difficult, this is exactly why an expert opinion is required.

A Termite inspection is the best way to begin any Termite Management Program on existing properties by determining if Termite activity, damage and or workings are present at the property, from here we can then supply Brisbane homeowners options to protect their home.

Steel Frame homes also get attacked by Termites, we understand the property framing maybe steel, but in many Steel frame houses we see Timber door jambs, windows sills, skirting boards and door architraves that are timber and susceptible to termite attack. Did you know, termites eat plasterboard wall linings.

 

 

 

Termite nests in trees – Every termite nest located should be identified and eliminated. There isn’t a termite nest found in South East Queensland that should not be eradicated. Many underestimate certain types of Termites as being non destructive, like Microcerotermes which is a big mistake.
