Termites – The Stealthy Destroyer

Termites, also known as white ants, feed on dead plant material, cabinets, floors, ceilings and wooden furniture within your home, causing serious structural damage. The subterranean termites are the most destructive type of all, working 24 hours a day and seven days a week. They build their nests completely out of sight underground, with each containing more than a million termites. A termite infestation can therefore produce devastating results

Identifying Damage

There are often signs of termite damage to indicate that your home is already in a serious state of termite infestation. Termites will enter your home through soil build up or wooden stumps close to your home, then feed on the wooded internal structures, compromising the strength and safety of your structural systems.

Termite damage can sometimes look like water damage, so observe your ceilings and walls for signs. Other signs include buckled wood and the scent of mildew or mould that termites tend to emanate. If you notice any of these signs at your Melbourne property, call Paramount Pest Control, and we’ll perform an assessment of the property followed by effective termite treatment services if necessary.

Identifying Termites

There are a variety of termite species in Australia, divided into three major groups: subterranean, drywood and dampwood.

Generally, termites can be identified by their small size (roughly the size of a grain of rice) and their pale brown to white body with a darker head, which is why they are also known as white ants.

Fungal decay in your property’s structure can make it significantly conducive to termites. Wood eating pests thrive on high levels of moisture which can be caused by plumbing leaks, poor ventilation and drainage problems.

Termite Activity and Damage

Termites traverse through shelter tubes and mud tunnels. These tubes are made by termite faeces and soil particles, designed to protect them from predators and to maintain high humidity and darkness as they move to and from the main colony area. 

The shelter tubes originate from the ground and can appear on walls and foundations, concealing the termites entirely. The tubes enable access to structural and joinery timbers of buildings and allow them to travel through a wide variety of materials. 

To determine termite damage at your Melbourne home, examine your furniture, floors, ceilings and walls. Termite damage will usually look as though parts of the timber have been eaten away. If the quality of your furniture or home structure is deteriorating at an unusually fast rate, it is best to call the pest control specialists to carry out an inspection.

Pest controllers can provide termite protection and treatment services that ensure your home is kept safe from these highly destructive creatures.


In the case of the termite species Coptotermes acinaciformis, the subterranean tunnels, which are mostly in the top 20cm of soil, radiate up to 100m, and in some soils they may be deeper and radiate even further. Seeing mud leads is generally a direct sign of termite activity.

Termite Inspections

To give your home the best protection, we recommend carrying out an inspection every 12 months. The inspection will determine whether termites are present at your home, and reveal the extent of damage (if any). It will also give you peace of mind, as you won’t need to worry about the risks of a weakening home structure and damaged beams.
