Termite Service Brisbane
Our White ant Service Inspection Brisbane Team knows experience matters. There are several main types of timber destroying termites in Australia. Also understanding their different characteristics is important. Knowing these nesting, eating, and exploring habits gives us a better chance of finding termite activity and potentially where the nest/s are.
Termites favor timber that is high in moisture as they require a damp area to survive. White ants can attack dry wood if there is a moisture source nearby such as a leaking pipe.
This is why we see most termite damage to wet zones like the laundry, bathroom, and kitchen. So detecting moisture is a large part of our White ant inspection. Most homes will hold a safe threshold of moisture which is normal, it's when it goes high we have issues. We use a Thermal Imaging Camera and Scientific Grade Moisture Meter to find these areas of concern during the inspection. Also, we use the Termatrac T3i, the world's number one Termite detection tool.

Conducive Environment. - What attracts White ants to my house.
Termite Inspections Brisbane.
Firstly A Conducive Environment is an area around your home that can potentially attract White ants or other Timber Pests. Poor ventilation to subfloors, inadequate drainage, gardens up against homes is just a few. In fact, these areas of concern are high on the radar is because they all are sources of moisture. Furthermore where there is moisture is a good sign of where Termites will attack. Most importantly moisture is the number one on our radar, like us termites need water to survive. So if you have moisture around your home the termites will turn up. So fix those leaking taps, fix your broken downpipes, and connect your air-con and hot water service overflows to the drainage. Also when termites fly during spring, they are actually reproductive termites (Alates) and they are on the search for these conducive conditions.
Remove these Conducive Environments and you lower your termite risk factor. A White ant inspection that looks heavily into conducive environments is our Termites Pest Report. Used when buying a house, this report goes through not just termites it covers timber pests like wood borers and timber decay fungus. It talks about previous termite damage.. and also important, future termite activity. More information can be found on our Termite Pest Inspection page.
