Termite Protection Townsville
The Bad News is that Townsville falls smack bang in the middle of the area with the highest incidence of termite infestation in Australia.
At least 30%, and as much as 40%, of our dwellings are affected by termites. All this was determined by the CSIRO no less.
The Bad News continues. This termite problem is on the increase because we like to build on concrete slabs and that means ground clearance is often next to nothing. Not that termites eat concrete. They are after our framing timbers, which are almost invariably soft wood.
An industry study back in 2012, found the average cost of termite treatment and damage repair per house was around $10,000.
To make matters worse, your house insurance doesn’t cover termite damage. It’s your responsibility as a home owner to manage pest infestation.
Any Good News About Termites?
The Good News is when you get the All Clear after our Blue Ribbon pest inspection on your property.
You definitely need to order a pest inspection before you proceed with a property purchase. Without a thorough, qualified inspection, you risk investing your hard-earned in a lemon.
If you’re soon to begin building, our termite barriers, in the form of chemical soil treatment, will protect your property for years to come.
In further Good News, Blue Ribbon Specialised Services is known for termite prevention and treatment. We’ve been a leader in the field for more than a quarter of a century. And we make sure we stay up to date with all the technology and techniques.
When it comes to termite detection, Blue Ribbon company owner John Van Stelten wasted no time. If dogs can sniff those food delicacies, truffles, when they’re under the soil, he quickly realised they would be well capable of sniffing termites. He can train dogs to do this and, of course, he also knows what to do when termites are detected.
Local building companies, property managers and developers come to Blue Ribbon, insisting on protecting their buildings with our termite barriers.
