What are White Ants?

White ants, also known as termites, are social insects that live in colonies with different castes such as workers, soldiers, and reproductives. The workers build intricate tunnel and nest systems where they feed on cellulose material like wood. Their hidden tunnels and nests built inside homes can go unnoticed for years, until severe structural damage occurs. A white ant colony can have 100,000 members or more!

The Risks

White ant infestations pose several risks:

  • They can damage load-bearing walls and other structural timber. Once damaged, these need expensive repairs or full replacement. Structural damage repairs are expensive. In Australia, termite damage costs millions of dollars every year.
  • Plumbing and electrical wiring are at risk of being damaged if infested, causing leaks, short circuits and even fires.
  • Furniture, flooring, books and other household items containing wood are food sources for termites.
  • Left unchecked, large parts of a home can be left severely compromised and unsafe.

In fact, white ants cause more damage annually in Australia than fires, cyclones and floods combined, costing homeowners billions. For complete protection you need to eliminate the entire colony.

Signs of Termite Infestations

Watch for these common signs that may indicate white ants:

  • Mud tubes running up walls, pillars or fence posts
  • Hollow sounding wood or tapping reveals damage
  • Wood that is oddly soft when probed
  • Discarded termite wings around windows or doors
  • Cracked paintwork for no apparent reason
  • Problems with the Structural Integrity of The Building

How to Control and Prevent White Ants

  • Inspection – Have a thorough annual inspection done by a licensed pest controller to check for activity.
  • Chemical soil treatment – Specialist termiticides create a chemical barrier to repel and kill colonies.
  • Physical termite barriers – Stainless steel mesh, sand traps and termite shields help prevent future entry.
  • Timber replacement – Remove and replace any infested timber.
  • Improved drainage – Effective drainage deters colonies who need moisture.
  • Reduce wood debris – Clear any wood debris around the property that can attract termites.
  • Regular inspections – Ongoing checks by a professional help detect termite activity early.

What To Do If You Suspect Termites

  • Have a thorough inspection done to assess the extent of the infestation
