Firstly, if you have found live termites in your home, do not disturb them! Termites are very shy and can disappear when disturbed only to reappear somewhere else in your property.
Termites are a highly destructive pest and cause from cosmetic to major structural damage to building in Australia. There are around 258 species of termites in Australia, however only a few species are wood damaging. See more information on identifying termites here.
Dedant Building and Pest Inspections can identify and treat live termites and termite nests. Call today for a quote on 07 3807 0122.
Protect Your Home from termites today with a chemical barrier.
Protect your home from termites today. Australian Standards recommends every home should have a termite management system in place. Termite management systems can be a physical barrier, chemical barrier or monitored bait system.

Protecting your home from termites is one of the most important investments you can make. If termites are located in your property, the experts at DedAnt can spot kill the termites and recommend a termite management system. If your home contains any structural timber – like a timber frame, timber trusses in the roof, timber flooring or a deck – termites could eat it away until it collapses.
That’s why a relatively small investment in vital protection for your most important asset is so worthwhile. And why you should insist on the best treatment available.
