No one ever wants to discover that their Local Katoomba home or Sydney home has termites.
It’s a homeowner’s worst nightmare!
1 in 3 Sydney homes can get termites, an informed homeowner is far better off than one who ignores the problem.
To protect your home or business from subterranean termites, you need to learn about the behavior of this termite pest and take steps for prevention.
What Are Subterranean Termites?
The various species of subterranean termites do more damage than any other termite types found in Katoomba. Subterranean termites build elaborate tunnels or “mud tubes” that allow them to find food and to avoid contact with daylight.
With their saw-like crushing jaws, these voracious insects eat wood fragments one-by-one, until they’ve done Major damage to a building, even to the point of that the structures can collapse.
Termites Have Excellent Appetites
How much damage they can do depends on the type and size of the termite, and how long you had termites. They can eat up to two to three times their body weight every day. Since subterranean termites live where moisture is available, they’re most likely to cause the most damage in and around Sydney homes, as we love are gardens and our landscaping, and so do TERMITES.
Most of the time, you won’t have a clue until the damage is already done
Where Can I Find Termite Damage On My Property?
It’s a smart idea to inspect your property periodically looking for signs of termite infestations. Here are a few signs to look for:
- Walls can smell like mould or damp
- Mud tubes along walls and the foundation
- Soft or patterns in floors and walls
- Small holes in drywall
- Wood that sounds hollow when tapped
Swarmers’ reproductive capabilities enable them to become queens and kings of future termite colonies. They have wings, and thus their ability to swarm as part of the termite mating process.
Swarms of alates flying from the colony (usually in October/ December) and then can also be noted Mid-January to Early March.
While it’s true that alates swarming can be quite a site to see, especially if they’re inside you home, this may mean your too late and the damage is done.
The alates are not the termites that eat the wood in your home.
Those are the worker termites.
A termite swarm is 99% evidence of an infestation in your home. Just Killing the alate swarmers won’t take care of your termite problem.
If you see swarmers outside or around your home, there is a nest or colony nearby—which means you need to call professional termite inspector,
Identifying Subterranean Termites
The queen is the largest termite, with wings nearly twice as long as her body. The king is much smaller.
Swarmer’s have long, dark brown bodies and translucent, light brown wings.
Their bodies typically measure about ¼ to ½ inch.
Workers and soldiers have cream-colored bodies, are wingless, and are only up to ¼ inch long.
Their tiny but powerful jaws help them chew wood and move obstructive materials.
Soldiers have a distinctive appearance, with large jaws, rectangular heads, and wide, flat bodies.
Although their bodies are creamy white, their heads are light to dark brown.
