Is your Newtown or Rockdale home in need of Termite Control?

One of the tougher elements of figuring out whether or not you have a termite infestation around, or near, your home? To the untrained eye, these small insects are tough to notice in a casual fashion. And even worse, the nest itself can be located several dozen metres from the home, or affected surface.

However, a natural method has been used to determine the state of your property. The termite workers are constantly carrying edible materials back from their feeding spot to the nest in a long trail, and while a good amount of that area could easily be below ground, there is often enough above ground to allow for some tracking, and the food source itself can serve as a giveaway.

You can pull a page from Hansel and Gretel: however, instead of leaving behind bread crumbs, employ toilet paper. As it is a fibrous product, the workers will no doubt harvest it, and bring it towards the nest. Along the way, occasional bits of the paper will fall by the wayside – offering you a direct trail to the nest itself. And by staying on top of the state of the toilet paper rolls, you can stay on top of the presence of this pest.
