It's nice having guests over for dinner, sharing a delicious meal with your friends around the table and enjoying everyone's company, but there are some unwanted guests in your home that you don't want coming over for dinner, like termites. Termites are small insects that chew away at the timber in your home and can wreak havoc if they are left for too long, especially if they are eating away at the important structural areas of your home – this can cause a huge safety hazard that will require immediate (and usually costly) repair. Have a termite inspection performed today to ensure your home is free of the unwanted pests and put your mind at ease.

Ok, so the report has come back positive and you have termites, what is the next course of action? If the damage isn't too bad, then managing termites is quite achievable through the use of fumigation. There are many pest control facilities that are able to kill off any colonies of termites and help to prevent them from getting back into your home. However, if they have caused a lot of damage some repair may be required to replace the areas they have infested.
