Termite Inspections East Maitland
As termites can cause significant damage to your property in as little as 6 months, a professional termite inspection at least once a year is the minimum requirement for homeowners. Our termite inspectors inspect each room in turn, as well as the roof void and sub-floor (if you have one), plus the yard and trees around the property. Our comprehensive reports will specify areas of termite activity and termite damage, as well as any potential conditions and issues that may increase the chances of a termite attack. Most importantly it will also provide recommendations to address these issues promptly and efficiently.
Termite Treatments East Maitland
Although annual termite inspections are important to actually protect buildings from concealed termite attack, it is necessary to have a preventative termite treatment. There are two main types of termite treatments; soil treatments, which involve the application of a termiticide to the soil around the building, and termite baiting systems that include installing bait stations in the ground around the building. Given that standard home insurance does not cover termite damage, investing in a reliable termite protection system should be a primary consideration for homeowners in East Maitland.

East Maitland – Key Pests
Although described as a temperate climate, East Maitland can have warm and humid, as well as hot and dry periods in the warmer months. Conversely being inland from the coast, night time temperatures in winter can drop close to freezing.
From a pest point of view, most pests tend to be active from spring through to autumn. Spiders appear in spring especially after a wet winter. Mosquitoes appear in early summer, especially in the areas near the Hunter River and wasps become more of a problem in late summer and autumn. During autumn and winter, rodents can become unwelcome visitors as they seek warmth and shelter indoors.
Although termites are more active in the warmer months, they can still cause damage all year round. In the Hunter Valley, the main termite species are Coptotermes. They can form colonies of over 1 million individuals and are capable of causing significant damage in a matter of months.
