Potential Risks for Pest Infestation
If you have a pest infestation, you most likely have seen the signs already. Almost all pests leave trails and droppings that should alert you to their presence. You will notice damages to your belongings like holes on furniture and clothing. When you see any sign, the next move is which pest is invading your property.

This is probably why termite infestation have been found in unexpected places, including boats. Subterranean termites would normally find their way into homes through the tunnels they’ve made underground. In the case of live termites in a boat, a male and female that were part of swarm may have found each other and the conditions on the boat conducive. Inspecting A boat is hard to inspect because the timber part is encased in fiberglass, making it hard to inspect. But a qualified termite specialist will identify the exact location where infestation is happening. Termites getting into a boat is proof that they have an excellent ability to build a nest as long as they have access to timber, moisture and a constant humid temperature. This spaces could be in a boat, at the top of a penthouse or a stored furniture.
It is also a fact that more than termite species could infest your home.

Ants are so common in residential and commercial premises that we tend to ignore their presence. But ignoring them is not smart. Their strong sense of smell allows them to quickly find food and other eatable stuff. Aside from biting, ants can also spread harmful diseases. This is why this common pest should be eliminated from the home, office and commercial premises.

TERMITE INFESTATION IN MANLY QLD
Manly Termite Hazard Level
High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Manly is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Manly is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.
The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Manly.
A coastal environment like Wynnum is prone to termite and vermin attacks.
The number one thing that attracts termites is water or moisture. It is almost a guarantee that if a home has water leakage problems, it will soon be invaded by termites, if it hasn’t been already.
Damage to homes, whether made from weatherboard, is likely if termites, or white ants, are left unchecked.
