The Central Coast is has plenty of termites, including the destructive subterranean type

Do you know what termites are? These little creatures can cause a lot of damage to your home if they are not appropriately treated. At Central Coast Pest Exterminators, we want to provide you with the latest information about termites so that you can be prepared in case you encounter them.

What Are Termites?

Termites are small insects that live in colonies. There are three types of termites: subterranean, dry wood, and damp wood.

  • Subterranean termites live in the soil and build mud tubes to reach food sources, such as wood.
  • Drywood termites live in wood and do not need contact with the ground.
  • Dampwood termites live in wood that is high in moisture content, such as rotting logs.

All termites eat wood, which makes them a serious pest problem for the property owners. Termites cause billions of dollars of damage to homes each year. They can be difficult to control because they are hard to find, and their nests are often hidden from view.


Termites on the Central Coast

Termites are a problem across Australia, causing damage to homes and businesses every year. In the Central Coast region of New South Wales, termite problems are pervasive. This is due to the combination of warm weather and high humidity levels that provide the perfect environment for termites to thrive.

Termites are attracted to wood, and they can quickly cause extensive damage to the structural integrity of a building. As a result, it is vital to be proactive in preventing termite infestations.

Fortunately, there are many things that homeowners can do to protect their property from these destructive pests.

First, it is crucial to have a professional inspect your home for signs of termite activity. The technicians at Central Coast Pest Exterminators can check if termites are present.

Once termites are found, it is important to take steps to eliminate them. This may involve applying pesticides, baits, or trenching the affected area. By taking proactive measures, homeowners can help keep their property safe from termite damage.
