Termites do billions of dollars worth of damage to Australian homes. They are one of the most destructive pests we come across in Newcastle and right across the Hunter Valley. It is truly devastating when we inform customers that they have termites in their home. In fact, they are often visibly shocked to find out how many termites they have munching on their walls.
It is necessary to locate these destructive pests in the early stages. That is why it is so important to have an annual termite inspection performed by an experienced professional.

What happens if they find termites?
Finding termites will often set off alarm bells. Most people will panic and think that their house has been eaten. In fact, they may imagine images of a wrecking ball going right through their house.
Shortly after, they will think of how much it will cost to demolish the old home and build a new one.
Fortunately, in most cases the house will not have to be demolished. Termites are often selective with what they eat, and the damage they cause maybe limited to a small area.
The amount of damage they have caused will also depend on the species you have. A well-trained technician will be able to identify them for you.
All our Jim’s Pest Control Newcastle technicians possess a full termite license. This enables them to not only find termites, but to put in place an effective treatment plan.
So, if termites are discovered during a termite inspection, they will be able to treat them immediately.
How often should I have an inspection?
Termite inspections should be carried out yearly when you have a current management plan. If you do not, it highly is recommended to have them done quarterly.
The reason for this is that if you have no protection in place, there is nothing stopping them from snacking on your home. Just think of it like not having a front door. A burglar can walk in anytime as there is no door to inhibit them.
