Termites (commonly known as white ants) are one of the most destructive pests in Australia. They cause millions of dollars damage to homes and structures throughout Sydney and NSW every year. According to CSIRO 1 in 3 homes will be affected by termites within the economic life of the structure. Termites are found in Sydney and throughout all of NSW, all too often, the presence of these home invaders goes undetected until damage is discovered by chance. This damage is not covered by most insurance 

What Attracts Termites to Your Home?

The seasons are quickly changing and many summer bugs will be looking for a way inside your home for comfort and warmth. Unfortunately, this includes termites, which will soon be on the hunt for a space to claim as their own. The worst part about it is that there could be things lying around your house that are already attracting these pests to your home, and you don’t even realize it!
