Termite Control - Management & Treatment

Termite Control - Cause it's us against them!Penrith Valley Pest Control specialise in Termite Prevention & Control.

Australia has approximately 300 species of termites but only about 15 species are regarded as economically damaging. The remainder play an important role, breaking down plant matter, in the natural environment. Although commonly called ‘white ants’ in Australia they are not related to ants at all but are more closely related to cockroaches. The association with ants has probably been coined due to their social nature and the fact that they are found in large colonies. A single termite colony can contain millions of individual termites. Within this colony structure will be a number of different castes (eg. workers, soldiers and reproductives) and each perform different functions to help maintain the health of the colony. Each of these castes are morphologically adapted to meet the requirements of the task they perform.


Termites Damage Homes

  • Termites cause more damage to homes than fires, floods and storms combined each year in Australia
  • One in five homes is affected by termite damage.
  • Termite damage can be extensive resulting in expensive repairs.
  • This damage caused is not covered by household insurance.
  • The Home owner has to meet the costs associated with repairing any structure.

It is very important to protect the future value and lifespan of your investment with a quality termite management system that best suits your individual building site requirements. In Australia we are lucky that most termite management systems must meet certain Standards and therefore most provide at least a minumum degree of protection of the building structure but, as with all things in life, a little knowledge can help in the choice between a basic level of protection and the best level of protection.

The choice of termite management system can be confusing given the range of options available, Penrith Valley Pest Control can advise you on the best Termite management system to suit your needs.
