Termite Infestations in Mount Gravatt

Plenty of homes in Mount Gravatt have fallen victim to termite attack, some multiple times. One of the ways that termites can enter your home is by building “mud leads” to bridge a gap between a wooden batten and into your home. If the top of the battens and the house are separated, it is easy to spot termites trying to enter your home. However, you won’t have a good visual of termites if shrubs and trees are planted up against your home. You should also keep soil and mulch away from the wooden battens so as not to attract foraging termites. If you have a house made mostly of wood, always be aware of signs of termite infestation and call a professional right away for treatment.

New homes are also at risk of termite attack because of Queensland’s warm and humid weather. Termites thrive on heat and moisture that is typical in Mount Gravatt, with 1 in 5 homes impacted.

Mosquitoes don’t fly far, so if you’re experiencing an increase of these pesky, blood-sucking insects, it may be time to check your surroundings, particularly your backyard, which is ripe for their breeding ground.

If all else fails, call the professionals who know the specific treatments to remove flies at any stage of their life cycle.

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Brisbane area, where Mount Gravatt is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

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 Mount Gravatt.

  • 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.
