Help! I Have Termites in My Home!

Don’t panic!! We deal with active termite infestations every day. But remember these simple guidelines:

  1. Don’t disturb the termites more than you already have. Don’t let any one else poke around and introduce the dry outside air into their system of galleries.
  2. Tape over any holes that were made when you discovered the termites.
  3. Call a professional, preferably a company that has been around for a while.
  4. Make sure the treatment options include an ongoing termite damage warranty, but make sure the warranty:
    • Will be available to your house;
    • Doesn’t require you to carry out major works like removing retaining walls.
    • Is not limited to just timber replacement.
      • Often replacement of the affected timber is just a small part of the overall cost.
