Do-it-yourself treatment of termites is not recommended. Disturbing the termites can lead to further spread throughout the structure, causing larger scale damage. Additionally, termites can be difficult to treat yourself due to their small size and nimble nature. Using a professional - like Inner West Pest Control - ensures that you recieve the most effective treatment for your pest problem.
Subterranean termites - the most common species found in homes - are a similar size to an ant, except they're in white in colour; another notable difference is termites have two sections to their body, whereas ants have three. Another common species that you may find in homes are Soldier Termites - which have a brown or otherwise darkened head segment. In addition, some termites may have wings - known as alates; these are sometimes mistaken for moths. These termites swarm out of their nest at a certain time of year or in the rainy season.
Termites are always looking for new sources of food, so a large amount of wood in your home that isn't properly treated can attract masses of them - causing an infestation within a day. Since they're so tiny, termites can squeeze through very small cracks and holes. They do, however, require a highly controller environment; termites will typically enter either through your home using timber in contact with the ground, or via "mud tunnels," leading through cracks in concrete or pipe penetrations.
The termite's life cycle has three main stages - they lack a pupal stage, unlike ants. From an egg, they hatch into a nymph (larva), which resemble small adults, before growing to an adult. The termite egg are light brown or white, and are slightly transparent. While they are visible to the naked eye, they are tiny and may be hard to spot.
Exterminating termites isn't as simple as it first seems. Extensive knowledge about where termites reside, the types of species, and how to safety handle the problem while minimising damage are all needed.
