 Termites - the silent destroyer

Termite Hazard Map

WA is rife with termites.
Subterranean termites live in colonies in the ground, building vertical tunnels that look like mud tubes above ground level so that they can search for food. Because subterranean termites will die if exposed to air for an extended period of time, the tunnels provide protection from the open air, allowing workers to carry food to the nest. Subterranean termites can form tunnels through cracks in concrete, so slab homes are not exempt from these termites. They need to stay in contact with the soil in order to survive. Termites feed on wood and other materials including trees, logs, stumps and grasses, however they will also eat the wooden structures and fittings found in houses and commercial buildings.  They are the silent destroyer - termites can invade your home and cause catastrophic damage in as little as 3 months.  The destruction is so great that termite damage is not covered by insurance, meaning its a problem which needs to be monitored and a yearly inspection is advisable.
In Australia, subterranean termite damage is estimated to cost more than $100m per year.
