Subterranean termites are the most destructive species of termites in Melbourne. Also known as white ants, they are responsible for over 70 percent of termite damage done to homes and buildings in Australia. We will ensure that your home is fully protected, using the latest and safest methods.
Not sure if you have termites? Often a problem isn’t evident until significant damage has been done, so for peace of mind a termite inspection will reveal any problems, enabling us to do a preventative treatment that will protect your home for years.
Is Your Area Termite Declared?
When building in a termite declared area you are required by law to have termite protection. Use our handy tool to find out if your council has stated that it is a declared termite area and access contact details to find out more.
It is important to note that termites are located all across Victoria, meaning that if your area is undeclared, there is still a risk of termite attack.
Concealed in locations that often go undetected, termites destroy timber internally, leaving only a wafer-thin layer to protect them from the outside environment.
There is no predictable pattern or height restriction to their damage, with termite-infested sites found in roofs and even high-rise construction.
All new houses, including extensions, built within areas designated by municipal councils to be subjected to termite infestation, must have some form of management against termite attack.
This is a requirement of the Building Regulations 2018 (the Regulations) and means the construction of all new buildings and additions are required to be protected against termite infestation in accordance with Australian Standard AS3660.1 – 2000 Termite management – Part 1: New Building work. The only exceptions apply to detached Class 10 buildings, such as a shed, garage or carport.
