Termites are hardworking insects who often works in silence. Before you know it, they could already be causing a thousand of dollars worth of damage to your structure.
There are several termite species in Australia. The most common in Canberra is the Coptotermes frenchi which often nest in eucalyptus tree trunks.
If a termite infestation is continually ignored and not treated immediately, these termites can invade the structural timbers of your building, poles and fences without being detected.
Since insurance companies do not cover termite damage, repair costs could reach up to tens of thousands of dollars. You would want to avoid that costly problem instead, so have your place inspected and treated for termites before anything else.
