Urgent Termite Inspection St George with AB1 Pest Control
What To Do If You Find Termites At Your St George Area Home
If you find active termites at your home during renovations or other discovery, it is very important to apply immediate and correct treatment to the termites.
Call your local termite inspection specialist for advice.
Do not spray the termites with an insecticide from the supermarket or hardware store. You may kill a few of the termites, but the remaining up to a million termites will still be lurking, waiting for the next opportunity to recommence feasting on your home.
The wrong treatment will cause greater difficulty to remove the termites from your home and increase the damage and cost to make your home free of termites.
A thorough termite inspection should be conducted and a suitable treatment plan devised. It could include the use of termiticide dusts, foams, baits or liquid treatments.
For a brief introduction to keeping your St George Area home safe from termites, watch the following video from the Bug Dr.

There are many different types of termites that may be in and around your property. They eat wood and any cellulose based products like paper and cardboard.

There are workers that dig tunnels and collect food for the colony. For protection from ants and other invaders, there are soldier termites. The soldiers can be identified with larger darker heads and large jaws or mandibles.
There are flying termites that are sent out annually to start new colonies.
Of course there is the queen that can produce 30,000 eggs per day, depending on the species.
