Well as the first few days of Autumn hit us with a big wet we wonder where sunny summer went. Usually the summer months are the active days of Termites and the feeding frenzy they perform on our most prized possession- our house and garden. Termites have an active season which usually runs during the warmer months, but over the last few seasons termites have had the most consistent weather of sun and water over a longer period of time with only the cooler months of June, July and August slowing down the activity of termites, now this does not mean NO termite activity only a slowing down of their movements as termites now prefer the warmth of the nest and termite colony, in some sense they are bit like the human race- when it's cold we are more likely to stay indoors around the heater with a cup of coffee than mowing the lawns and keeping the garden maintained.
Little creatures, gargantuan damage. And as you know, any damage to your property means a catastrophe for your finances. Don’t let the pests have their way. They cause damage, they carry disease, and they’re ugly – they must not prevail in their quest for dominion. Their hideous pursuits must be subdued with utmost efficiency, efficacy, and authority. Bugs, spiders, rodents... get to the phone and set an appointment with the city’s best exterminators. It’s only your duty as a responsible homeowner, Australian, and human being. Just say “No!” to pests. Do not let your life be the foundation of a weird science fiction and/or horror movie.
Those white ants are hurt to be called vandals or fun sponges. They don’t mean to ruin your good time or your property in their bid to nourish themselves and reinforce their colony. People are not the only ones who love the idea of a great outdoor meal in the warm dusk after all. You’ll probably find company descending in droves as the mouth-watering aroma of tonight’s barbie wafts through the humid air. It’s not the kind of company you were expecting, however. These guests are the winged variety and they didn’t come for your exotic kabobs or famous barbecue sauce, either. As the night closes in, those ubiquitous flying white ants or termites make their presence felt as they revel in the warm, moist air in search of yummy timber. When this happens, don’t fret over your gatecrashed barbie; instead, worry that those buggers are eyeing your home as their next food source.
