Habitable spots for termites in your Coolangatta property
Termites love living in dense, moist compartments and in recent times in Coolangatta, we've noticed the need to keep a special eye on termite activity. Part of keeping them out of your home is identifying where their easy entry points are located and where these termites like to dwell. The team at CTS Termite and Pest Control suggest Coolangatta homeowners take some easy proactive steps by grabbing a flashlight and seeing first-hand whether there are signs of termites hiding at home. Here are four common areas to look for termites in your house in Coolangatta:
Attic or above ceiling spaces
If you suspect a termite infestation in your Coolangatta home, better check your attic or section immediately above your ceiling, right away. Your home's attic is one of the areas in your house where termites love to inhabit. It is because of the large amount of wood in it and the humid temperature which is any termites' preferred environment. Daniel and his team at Complete Termite and Pest Control have had countless experiences of homes with infested attics and ceiling spaces.
Check the garage or storage area in your house. You might have stored pieces of wood and cardboard that termites love to chew. It only requires a tiny gap in the concrete slab of your garage area for these nasty critters to enter. Storing cardboard and timber inside may not always be such a smart idea.
Termites prefer moist environment not just because they like it, but it is necessary for them to survive. Check areas in your home where pipes are situated. They might be leaky and attract termites in the long run. Fix them immediately before things go wrong.
Concrete slabs and other areas
Concrete slabs and woody areas are most likely to get inhabited by termites. Check these areas including; wood and door frames, ceilings, foundation and wall corners. Termites might be hiding beneath them.
