Tracey Grimshaw presented a story on Monday night the 4th June 2012 about termites taking over a house. The termites did indeed take over the house but that is only because the landlord did nothing to stop it. If the landlord did care about his house he would have treated the pests (termites) months or even years ago.
This type of pest (white-ant) attack is extreme and I do feel sorry for the pest inspector who has had to treat it. In extreme cases pests or termites will push mud out of the wall or gyprock and the reason why this happens is because there is not enough room behind the wall for hundreds, maybe thousands of pest (white-ants). In this story you saw thousands of flying (winged) termites coming out of the wall. As a mature termite nest gets to a certain size they need to take flight and start new colonies, so those winged termites that were seen are the potential kings and queens of the next colony.
It is lucky for most homeowners in Runcorn, Calamvale, Parkinson, Algester, Drewvale & Stretton that they will see the early signs of termite damage and call a professional inspector for termite protection. Conquer Termites pest inspectors know signs of pest (white ants) and how they can potentially enter your house in a concealed matter. All our pest inspectors carry thermal imaging cameras that can pick up hidden pest.
