How to keep your house safe?
seek professional help
Resist the urge to take matters into your own hands. If you think that you detect termite activity do not poke around in those areas. As disturbing these pests can cause them to relocate, making the job more difficult they could also spread to other areas of your home and cause more damage
Keep plants away from your home / building
Small gardens look great next to your home. But to keep your home safe it’s best to not plant garden beds near your house. Garden beds close to your house can cover up termite activity and gives the pests a chance to access your home.
don’t store timber
Don’t store any timber around your home. Remove any dead tree stumps too. All of these things can act as food sources for a termite colony.
avoid moisture in your home
Make sure your home has plenty of ventilation. Especially if you have suspended floors at home. Otherwise moisture builds up and termites love moisture and humidity. If you have any leaky pipes or areas where poor drainage occurs it’s best to get these issues fixed as soon as possible.
