IT'S A TERRIFIC Wednesday AT Termite Solutions!

7.30 AM - 5.30 PM | WE ARE OPEN!

Over the last 3 weeks Termite Solutions inspectors have observed that Microceretermes sp. termites have been very active

And today, for the first time this year, we observed Alates ( flying reproductives ) from a Microceretermes nest beside a home in Algester. Last year our first sighting was in October.

Microceretermes termites are rarely associated with structural damage, but they can really be a nuisance when they build their mud  nests inside your home.

If you studied Latin when you were in school, you’ll remember that ‘ Micro’ means small and ‘Ceretermes’ means ‘ bloody nuisance ‘, so you’ll quickly work out that these termites are a real nuisance, not a very destructive pest.

We’ve attached some photos which show the typical evidence found from Microcerotermes.

In the third picture along….

Termites were found in this 4 year old home in Springfield Lakes that was protected by stainless steel mesh. They entered the building beside a waste pipe under a vanity basin that had not been adequately protected. Issues such as these are common in homes where plumbing penetrations are not adequately protected
.
Regular inspections are essential in new homes. Pre-construction pest control companies commonly do not cover issues such as this, and place the blame on builders.
