Recently, while installing a chemical treatment to a house in Brisbane, one of our technicians found live termite walking on top of the ground along the external perimeter under a deck. He discovered them when he lifted several decking boards to apply the chemical. With the warm, moist climate we have been experiencing through this summer, the termites will sometimes do away with their mud leads and forage freely, especially when they feel secure and they know they will not be exposed to sunlight. This is why it is so important to have the appropriate protection under and along where your timber deck abuts up to your home. If you have any concerns about termites near your home, or under your deck, call us now on 3088 2100.
