Termites are pests that are classified under the cockroach family and are known to be the ancestors of cockroaches. They generally feed on wood, lead, animal dung, and soil. Further, termites are used in several traditional medicines and have even found their way in modern medical science.
The damage caused by termites can be severe, and it can infest your property and cause a tremendous loss in a short time. As termites are cryptic, they do not come out in the open, making it difficult to detect early. Positive Pest Control Adelaide is the leading termite control company in Adelaide and its surroundings. With our skilled termite control technicians, we aim to achieve cent-per-cent termite removal and control. Our technicians use eco-friendly and non-toxic chemicals that are safe for your family members, including pets. Our termite control method offers you a complete solution for these unwanted pesky pests.
Headbanging: One of the indications of termites is the clicking sound coming from your walls. When disturbed or at the sign of danger, soldier termites bang their head against the wood or shake their body to alert the colony. The worker termites are noisy eaters, and you can hear them if you put your ear close to the infested area.
Papery or hollow-sounding timber: Termites eat the insides of the timber. Thus, when you knock on the infested area, you will be able to hear a hollow or papery sound.
Tunnels in the wood: One of the most common signs of termites is tunnels in the wood. Termites frequently make tunnels made of mud or termite droppings. These tunnels offer them shelter and protection.
