Useful Tips for Property Owners

Any cellulose based materials (wooden piles, wooden articles, cardboard boxes etc.) should not be stored in direct ground contact or underneath houses. These materials provide termites with an excellent food source and, in some cases may assist in creating an entry point for termites into your home.

Do not have gardens,plants, trees,mulch or bark too close to the perimeter (walls) of your home. To avoid conducive conditions for timber pest, a clearance of at least 300mm should be allowed. This also makes termite(white ants) protection an easier task.

Any circumstances that may create high moisture (leaking taps, showers, air-conditioning or hot water overflows, etc.) be taken care of as soon as possible to minimize conducive conditions for timber pest. Any effective termites treatment in these areas can only be done when these moisture problems are fixed, otherwise the moisture will wash away the Termiticides.

Subfloor ventilation should be adequate. White ants like moist. Check for moisture on a regular basis and make sure there is enough ventilation under the house.

Subfloor drainage should be checked to prevent excess water accumulating. High moisture levels may attract termites to your home.

Moisture is essential to termite(white ants) survival and a major attractant. Minimizing moisture from in and around the dwelling is half the termite prevention battle.
