Understand Termite Colonies (Nests)
- Termites collect food to take back to their nest.
- They are blind and work in underground galleries.
- The termites that attack houses collect timber.
- They will travel up to 100 metres to find a food source.
Note: If termites are detected in your yard Termite Free Naturally Baiting can destroy the termite colony, thus eliminating the problem.
We built our house 14 years ago with a standard anti-termite barrier in the foundation slab. We also engaged Termite Free Naturally to eradicate the termites on our block because the surrounding area had a lot of termite-ridden trees. We had one termite attack into a staircase, but the entry point was established and the termite colony eradicated by Termite Free Naturally using one of their termite eradication traps. We have had our house surrounded by Termite Free Naturally’s trap system ever since and have had no further problems.
We have regular annual inspections by Termite Free Naturally and regularly inspect the traps ourselves to see if there is any termite activity. So far there has been none. We cannot speak highly enough of Termite Free Naturally’s professional and customer-oriented approach.
We recently heard noises in our bedroom ceiling space and thought they might be termites. We contacted Termite Free Naturally and they went into our roof space to have a look. Our problem was not termites but rats! Termite Free Naturally put rat baits in the ceiling space and the rats took them and perished outside our house. This had nothing to do with termites, of course, but shows how concerned and obliging Termite Free Naturally are for their regular clients (including older clients like us).
