Cairns Termite Professionals

Cairns termite professionals, Pestaway Pest Management, know everything there is to know about termites. We know where they live, how to find them and most importantly, how to get rid of them.

Termites are of particular concern in Cairns and around North Queensland. Why? Termites favour climates with average temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius and high humidity. Sound familiar? Cairns’ termites live in perfect conditions, so it should come as no surprise that termite activity here, is more prevalent than most other places in Australia.

So, where do termites come from? They are an ancient critter, which are closely related to cockroaches. They are believed to have evolved during the Jurassic or Triassic period. They can be found around the world, in colonies that range from a few hundred, to several million termites. Each colony has a queen and some queens can live up to 50 years, which means early detection is critical.

Termites by nature, play an important role in recycling dead plant materials, including wood. Which is why they pose such a risk to timber properties, or properties with timber features. They live in nests. In nature, these can be found in trees or on the ground, as a large termite mound.

At properties around Cairns, termites can be inside walls, under slabs, in ceiling cavities and even in besser block. They can be attracted to your timber house, or come in through your gardens, fences and surroundings.

Termites can cause significant property damage. Indeed, according to State Forestry Research, 1 in every 3 homes has evidence of timber pest damage or activity. It is estimated that each year, termites cause $80 to $100 million worth of damage to Australian properties. Often this is not covered by your insurance.

The good news is that Cairns termite damage is preventable through a regular schedule of inspections and treatment, with Pestaway Pest Management.
