Best Termites Control is specialized in new buildings’ termite protection systems. At a Site in Seaford, we have treated the double block walls on the boundary line, by using HomeGuard Blue Sheets. We have glued the sheets with Termiflex products made by the same manufacturer. The idea is to seal the entry point between the blocks and not allow termites from reaching the timber.

Best Termites Control has accepted to do a job for a construction company treatment to 2 units in Malvern Area (pre-construction termite protection solution). The subfloor was a steel structure, but the surveyor has asked the builder to do termite protection. The reason the termite treatment is required even the subfloor structure is steel is, termites are able to bridge over the steel and reach the timber.

Termites are little insects that are termed along with ants. Termites are sometimes called "white ants" even though they are not really related to them. The scientific name for Termites is ISOPTERA. Termites generally feed on dead plant material, which consists of wood, leaf litter, soil or animal dung/poo.

We received a call inquiry at our office, a lady is looking for Termite treatment to an extension so she can get the council’s occupancy permit, After site inspection for termites, we found that the site has not been treated before concreting the slab. A quote was given to the customer and was accepted on the day.

Last week one of my regular customer's builders called me and asked me for urgent help, he was not able to get an occupancy permit for the 2 Units he built and completed in Dromana, Victoria. He was not informed by the surveyor that it requires termite protection so he did not do it during construction. The construction is completed now and ready to hand over to the landlord.

Are you starting to see mud tubes on or around the foundation of your Melbourne home? Did you spot a few termites when you picked up that piece of wood near your home? Or did you just notice that some boards that you replaced in your basement had some termite damage? If your answer is yes, then the termite home invasion has probably already started.

It is estimated one in five homes in Australia is treated for termite damage at some stage of its life and it means around 130,000 buildings each year. There are approx. 350 species of termites in Australia; fortunately only about 20 species can damage timber in houses. Another name commonly used in Australia is ‘white ants’ because of their creamy colouring and ant-like appearance.
