Do New Houses Need Termite Control?
Just because your house is brand new does not mean it is safe from pests and termites. Some people think that new buildings don’t require pest control, but that is not the case. Just because your house is new does not mean it is automatically protected from pests and termites. Bugs can damage any type of building, no matter how new. In fact, termites are skilled at smelling out wood used in construction and cause structural damage before the building is even complete.
If you want to protect your new home from pests and termites, Canberra Pest Exterminators can help. We offer a range of pest control and termite services that are designed to keep your home safe from these destructive pests.
New Homes at Risk
New properties and extensions must have a termite management system in place under the Building Code of Australia. Canberra Pest Exterminators can provide management options, including installing termite barriers, soil treatments, and reticulation systems.
Some homeowners think they should wait until their home is built before they start thinking about termites. During our years of providing termite control, we have found that preventative action is always better than waiting for an infestation to occur. Getting a pre-construction termite barrier early will stop termites from day one.
Termites are voracious eaters that can quickly destroy the structural integrity of a home, causing damage that can be expensive to repair. One of the best ways to protect a new home from termites is to install a termite barrier. A termite barrier is a chemical or physical barrier placed around or under the foundation. This barrier prevents termites from gaining access to the home and kills any termites that come into contact with it. In addition, a termite barrier can help to discourage termites from nesting nearby in trees or sheds.
Do I Need Termite Control With Renovations?
If you’re planning any home renovations, you need to consider the potential for termite damage. While most people think of termites as pests that eat wood, they can also cause serious damage to plaster, plastic, and insulation.
If you’re only replacing a few floorboards or repainting a room, there’s no need to worry about termites. However, if you’re planning more extensive renovations or extensions, it’s wise to take steps to protect your home. Renovations can disturb the soil around your foundation, making it easier for termites to gain access to your home. In addition, exposed wood and other building materials are more vulnerable to termite damage. As a result, it’s essential to work with qualified pest control experts at Canberra Pest Extermination. We can help you determine the best way to protect your home during and after renovations.
