5 Signs You Have Termites!
Are you noticing things around your home? …little white ants? …noises in the wall perhaps? Your home may have termites! No need to worry though, Master Pest Control Sydney are the professionals of pest management. Our team are just one call away. With experience servicing commercial and residential properties all around the Sydney metropolitan area, we are the best people for the task.
There are five typical signs that your home or business may contain the terrible termites in its cracks and crevices.
1. The Swarm
Termites can either crawl or fly. When they fly they will swarm. This usually happens around warmer weather as it is prime climate for the termites to begin their mating season. Once they are developed they rise up from the group and congregate in the sky, traveling to your house! If you see a swarm in your general area, please contact Masters Pest Control Sydney immediately.
2. Mud Tunnels
When termites infest your property they will create mud tunnels. These tunnels are small tubes that are constructed on the inside and outside of your walls. The devious beasts use this to protect themselves from humans and keep warm. To see if the tunnel is active, just cut open the middle of it – if it is repaired within days you need to call Masters Pest Control Sydney immediately.
3. Noises in the walls
Lucky for you, termites don’t mind being noisy intruders. They will literally hit their heads on the walls of your home when they hear you coming, this is to warn the rest of the colony you’re home. If you have enough visitors, you will be able to hear the buzzing noises. Masters Pest Control Sydney are happy to come and exterminate your noisey room mates.
4. White Ants
Perhaps you have been seeing interesting looking little white ants around your home? Truth be told, there is no such thing as a white ant – THESE ARE TERMITES! Call Masters Pest Control Sydney and our professional exterminators will come and clear the white ants out.
5. Hollow Sounding Wood
If you have suspicions about termites in the wall, try knocking on the wall. If your wall sounds a little extra hollow – this may mean that termites have eaten through it. Termites love to chomp and feed off the material your home is made from. Call Masters Pest Control Sydney and we will come and put a stop to their expensive appetite.
