Termite Control / White Ants in Bunbury
Termite Control in Bunbury – What You Should Know
Do you think that termites may be wreaking havoc in your home or business? There’s a few simple ways to tell if your property is at-risk.
Since Terrmites thrive in densely populated areas, Bunbury is a hotspot for termite activity and can be hard to control. Also known as white ants, these pests feed on timber found in decaying trees, floorboards, support beams and handrails, to name a few.
Termites find comfort in dark and moisture-rich places. Without you realising it, they can invade your property through mud tunnels, creeping into drainage pipes, and tiny cracks or crevices.

3- “If I take them away fom the queen they will die”. False. If winged reproductives are amonst the infestation, there job will be to step in and establish a new nest.
4- “Termites wont eat Jarrah”. False. Just go for a drive along any of our rural roads and you’ll see Jarrah fence posts being attacked. In fact it is extremely common to find Termite nests inside large Jarrah trees!
