Termites can be found across most of Australia, and there are a number of different species, some of which are native and others are not. You may not be concerned by the sheer variation but should certainly be worried about the risk to your property. If you are a new homeowner and do not have any abatement processes in place, where should you start as you build up a line of defence against these unwanted critters?
Termites may be small creatures but their colonies can grow rapidly unless you take effective measures against them. Things like termiticides made from borax are good at offering a targeted termite treatment, but it is so much easier to deal with them before their numbers get out of hand and they start to cause substantial damage to your property. As such, many home and business premises owners undertake a termite inspection once in a while to look out for the tell-tale signs that they are nearby.
