It might be winter but termites are still on the move

June 6, 2014

Termites can be said to be seasonal especially down here in Victoria where we get particularly cold winters compared to say Brisbane. The cooler weather does affected their mobility and certainly we associate these months with a slowing of activity in homes and in the environment but slowing does not mean cessation… Below is a termite monitor installed just 12 weeks earlier which was discovered to hold large numbers of Coptotermes frenchi, a species that is particularly destructive in parts of Melbourne and up to parts of NSW.

With termites still active in Winter, its always a good time for a termite inspection.
