Don’t take risks!
Don’t believe anyone who tells you that your house is safe from timber pests.  Thousands of homes in Australia are infested with termites.  Your home may be one of them.  As you can see from the images below, ant caps cannot prevent termite infestation.  Many people assume that if they have their home fitted with ant caps, they can prevent termites from moving into their homes.  This is a common mistake that everyone makes.  Ant caps can help make termites more visible, but they cannot prevent termites from moving in.  From the image below, you can see that the termites have actually created a mud tub over the ant caps.  Without a timber pest inspection, these things can be missed and substantial damage may result.  So, do not take risks.  The small cost of a timber pest inspection can save you thousands of dollars in the long run..

Information on Termites...
What Is A Termite?

Many people confused termites with other insects like ants.  In fact, they are sometimes referred to as “white ants” because of their color and appearance.  These insects feed on wood.  This is why they can create a lot of damage to the structure of your home.  There are two common types of termites:  the worker and the swarmer.  The worker termites have creamy color and are 3-4 mm long.  These types of termites can only be seen once the infested wood breaks open.  On the other hand, swarmers are 44 mm long and they are either darn brown or black in color.  They do not have wings because they lose their wings when theyh leave the colonies.  Swarmers are in charge of the reproduction and they can only be seen when they leave the nest and start their own colony.  Termites can reproduce up to 20,000 new termites in a month.
