The problematic termites that affect homes throughout S/E Queensland gain concealed entry so that are not found and can continue to feed and survive.
This can only be seen once a trench has been dug around the full external perimeter of the home. Some think that the only way in is via the weep holes, this is rarely the case because termites would have to show themselves to gain entry (risking their lives).
“Checking your weep holes” is almost a complete waste of time.
Once inside, termites eat wood from the inside – out, which is rarely seen with just the naked eye. So often a piece of wood can look like this:-

Here at Conquer Termites Gold Coast, we use a combination of high resolution thermal cameras, moisture meters and old school techniques to detect termite activity inside walls and give home owners the most accurate information available on our inspections.
