Termites (commonly known as white ants) are one of the most destructive pests in Australia. They cause millions of dollars damage to homes and structures throughout Melbourne and Victoria every year. According to CSIRO 1 in 3 homes will be affected by termites within the economic life of the structure. Termites are found in Melbourne and throughout all of Victoria, all too often, the presence of these home invaders goes undetected until damage is discovered by chance. This damage is not covered by insurance companies.
