As winter draws to a close, many people seem to be under the impression that termites and other pests simply disappeared over the colder months, and are just starting to reappear now as it gets warmer. This isn’t the case – especially with termites. They are active the whole year round!
We recently went to a home in Ballina where the owner had some concerns. Sure enough, we found a good deal of termite activity in the home, with a some damage done to the internal structure.
Our technician found the source of the damage was centred around the bathroom area, where the shower had been leaking. The combination of timber, a water source and a concealed area (behind the walls) made it incredibly attractive for termites to move in.
Unfortunately, the home owner is now up for at least two different expenses – repair to the shower to stop the leak, and repair the damage caused by the termites. We have also quoted, and highly recommend a preventative termite treatment to stop this happening again!
