PEST MANAGEMENT
TERMITES
INFO ABOUT TERMITES
Termites have lived on Earth for more than 250 million years. While termites can be helpful in breaking down rotting wood in the environment, these wood-destroying insects also can cause extensive damage to homes. Sometimes known as the “Silent Destroyers,” termites may leave few signs of activity as they steadily consume wood and wood – based materials in the walls, ceilings and floors of your property.

Unfortunately, once termite activity is visible, your property may have already sustained significant damage from these pests.
While each termite species thrives in different climates and eats different types of food, all termites require four things to survive — food, moisture, shelter and optimal temperature. Unfortunately, all homes, regardless of their construction type, can provide these ideal conditions for termite infestation.

While termites only measure approximately one centimetre (1 cm) in length, their feeding habits are capable of causing costly damage to your property.
HOW DO WE MANAGE IT?
A termite management system is incomplete unless conditions favouring their survival are changed.

Environmental Essentials makes use of an advance Termite Detection System to detect termites’ presence in your property.

Treatment for termites varies from pre and post construction. We believe that a proper pre-construction termite barrier system is essential to reduce termite infestation in future.
