•Here is a list of SIGNS OF TERMITES from 1 - 10 on the bottom.
•1 Damaged & Soft Wood
Drywood termites build their colonies within timber construction on which they feed on. They can be found inside of cavity walls. Drywood termite invasion may only become probable after a colony has tunnelled so broad into a beset item that the exterior cracks and the muddle-like tunnels below become noticeable. Should this occur on new floorboards or plaster walls or and timber cladding, contact a rapid pest control Melbourne to discuss the harshness of your problem, as well as extermination prices.
•2 Plaster Damage
Indeed, termites really don't like to eat drywall "plaster" or paint. They do, however, like the outside paper and glue that covers the plaster board. Especially if it gets moist from some sort of inundation. When the wall becomes moist, the paper soaks up water and draws them in. They will tunnel between your plaster and paint surface and the drywall as they damage their way crosswise along the wall.
•3 Noise Banging At Night
That’s right, termites tend to chew with their mouths wide open, and they make it 24/7, all day long, they never sleep. When accelerated by positive vibrations, termites get louder and more destructive with their chewing, which they make a like clicking noise, or someone taping to the wall all day long. If you put your ear to the wall and hear tap, tap, it is time for a termite inspection.
•4 Wood-Coloured Droppings
Termites are a living bug which eat and discharge, and their droppings, we call it frass, feature wood-coloured pellets. If you do find these small droppings in your house, we recommend on calling us for an inspection.
•5 Flying Termites Around
The most obvious sign you have a termite infestation is the small insects flying in or around your house. A little may not guarantee a colony of termites eating away at your home’s infrastructure, but frequent sightings can call in a professional, especially since they rarely fly far from their nest.
•6 Hard to Open Windows
Similarly, to the bubbling paint, moisture from termites can cause wood frames to expand. If you’re struggling to open a window in your home, termites may be the cause.
•7 blistering Paint Window Jambs
Bubbling paint indicates a water problem, and termites produce moisture when tunnelling and eating. Look around for peeling paint on wood panels, which can be a sign of a termite infestation.
•8 Mud Tunnels-Mud Leads
Termites live beneath the ground, making tunnels to sources of food. These mud tubes leave uneven patterns made from mud-like tubes in your house walls. Although they are difficult to see and find, you can find them under your house or in up your cavity wall.
•9 Frass Termite Droppings
Termites live off of the least amount of moisture produced in the timber and when they release droppings they remove as much moisture from it as available, emerge in hard pellet like feces. To control, a clean counter, termites create holes to kick out their misuse. This waste, now out on tour window ledge, can quickly be seen and noted as a sign of termites in your home in Melbourne.
•10 Termite Wings
Young, female and male termites waste from their nests to clone, dropping their wings in the process. Swarmers fly away to start new termite colonies, including in your homes, during the generating stages. They have white/see-through wings and can identify a termite problem early if you find them in your home.
