Termites. We all know they can do monumental damage to homes and cause thousands or even ten of thousands of dollars in damage, but how many of us know what the signs of termite damage are or even how to identify a termite if we saw one?
Because many of us haven’t had experience with seeing, identifying or surveying the damage that termites can do, we tend to think ‘it always happens to someone else’s home’, until it happens to us. That’s when we all start wishing we had looked into preventative measures sooner.
Living in Queensland has it’s benefits. Great weather, amazing produce and seafood, but there are also hazards when you live in such beautiful country, and termites is one of the threats that – just like our storms, cyclones and floods, can seriously damage your home.
If you’ve ever had termites in your home, know someone who’s had them or heard the horror stories about homes being eaten from the inside out, we don’t blame you for doing a little research on the internet about the best termite protection options.
If you’ve been to a few different websites about termite protection, treatment and inspections, you’ve no doubt found there’s quite a few different ways to approach termite protection methods.

Nobody likes to think there might be termites in their home doing untold amounts of damage that could end up costing thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars.
If you’re concerned at potential signs of termites making their way into your home (or that they might already be there) we’ve put together this extensive list of things we’ve seen over the last several years of going into thousands of Brisbane homes and inspecting them for termite activity to help you correctly identify termites and potential termite damage in your home.
Before we jump into the signs of termite activity, it’s worth outlining exactly what a termite is and is not. Many people mistake other insects (certain breeds of ants, for example) for termites and cause themselves unnecessary grief.
