Cherrybrook, an area located in the Northern suburbs of Sydney, is undergoing significant infrastructure development with the construction of the North West Rail Link. Development in the area has increased demand. Population also has an impact on the environment, and correlates to termite infestations. Termites flourish in areas with wood and trees, making Cherrybrook a hotspot for these pests.
Think Your Place is Termite-Resistant? Think Again
Even if you live in a brick or stone house, it does not mean that the structure is impervious to termites. Termites are able to naturally adapt and colonise anywhere they can, no matter how inhospitable the place is. Even in a seemingly impenetrable building, you won’t avoid termites. You will just have a harder time noticing the infestation, until the damage has already been done. And in some cases, the damage is irreversible.
Every year, termites wreak havoc in more than 180,000 residential and commercial properties in Australia. Total cost of damage can be estimated at a range of 700 million to over 1 billion dollars when agriculture and horticulture are taken into consideration.
Despite these numbers, a lot of home and business owners out there are still surprised to find out that termites eat more than just wood. Their diet also consists of books, paper, filtering systems, and even insulation, serving as sustenance that is capable of feeding their entire colony.
To make matters worse, termites are not affected by climate changes in any way. They are slightly more common to come across in warm and temperate climates, but their numbers still stand no matter the season. Additionally, if you have placed your house in a forested area, there is a higher chance that you might experience a termite infestation. Forests, fields and plains that were once vegetated but are now bare, are heaven itself for termite colonies as they can easily transfer from there to local buildings.
Best Approach to Termite Protection
Termite infestation prevention is paramount for all property owners and managers. As they can cause damage both in and around your home and office, they present a very serious problem that demands immediate attention.
In a study that was conducted by The Australian Institute of Architects, over 130,000 homes in Australia are attacked by termites. On average, the cost for pest control treatment was about $2,500 and the average cost for repairs from the termite damage was $4,500. This amounts to a total average cost of $7,000 for each termite infested home. Why risk having termite damage in your home when one preventative treatment will cost you less than a few nights out for dinner? For places like Australia termites can be of great trouble as most of the housing built in Sydney continues to rely on wood structures.
Over the years, we have found that the most effective way to prevent structural devastation is to invest in termite protection as soon as possible. Instead of waiting to act after the termites have nested and destroyed your home or business, it is wiser to consider a proactive role. By taking action right now and making your building truly inhospitable for termites, you will get some real protection and peace of mind.
