Why termite Inspection is so important
Statistics show that at least 1 out of every 3 homes in Australia will experience termite problems. This means that if you live in a quiet street with 30 homes, at least 10 of them will get these unwelcome visitors at some stage. This can devalue your home by more than 20%?
Termites cause an estimated $1 billion dollars in damage annually. Throughout our experience, we have found that termite infestation to a dwelling has generally occurred due to the simply fact that no effective termite protection exists.
That is why termite inspection is crucial to every home. Invest in termite inspection now before it’s too late and you have to spend much more.
How to identify if you have termites
Are you concerned about termites and other timber-devouring pests?
Termites are comparable in size to ants, which makes it difficult to detect.
Here are a few ways you can determine whether you may have termites:
- Hollow sounding timber: Termites feed below the surface of the wood/timber making them very hard to notice. Has a hollow sound when you tap or knock.
- Any cracked or bubbling paint: This is caused by the internal damage the termites cause.
- Termite droppings: Also known as frass, they don’t cause the damage but are more of an indicator.
- Odour: This may be a musty/pungent odor, similar to water damage.
- Mud tunnels: Made up from a mixture of frass and mud. This is what connects the nest to the food source, found on the exterior of the walls.
There are many other ways you can identify termites but without professional help, you are more likely to see the damage they cause before you see the termites themselves.That’s why it is best to leave it to the experts.

Termites can be of a great problem to your home and property. If not given quick action, they can create an extensive damage by burrowing and tunneling into the walls and columns of a house or building. Fortunately, Trusted Pest Management is here to give you the best termite defense and treatment to save your property from future damage termites brought with their invasion.
How destructive can the termites be?
Termite infestation is a common yet a serious problem to humans. Surely, anyone can attest to how destructive they are to buildings, homes, and even to food crops. Termites are a serious threat as they can consume a massive amount of wood in one day. They will feed and feed on the wood until what’s left is an empty shell. A single termite can eat up to 5 grams of wood per day. Just imagine having this whole colony of about a hundred thousand population feeding on any part of your property now!
Most termite colonisation is left undetected until parts are severely damaged. But in some instances, you can guess right away if there’s a termite infestation going on in your area just by the tunnels they built with the wood and soil they ate that are visible on the walls or posts, serving as a safe passage for them. Another obvious sign is those tiny wood specs on the floor excreted by these insects. Houses or buildings, especially those constructed from wood, are easy and vulnerable targets of these pests.
