Just yesterday, a home owner had found found what seemed to be “just a bit of mud or dirt” on the wall of their bedroom.
With suspicions that it might be termites, she asked us at Conquer Termites Gold Coast to investigate.
With the use of our high resolution E50 FLIR thermal camera, it was easy to see that a termite nest had existed there for quite some time before this visual evidence had become apparent.
After we had permission from the home owner to remove some items on the floor to investigate this further, we found……
Termites just walking around like this was a normal thing to do!!!
For other termite specialists reading this, there was actually no item directly on top of these coptotermes colony but only a little built up in front of them. This is quite exactly how I found them. The room conditions were nothing outside standard conditions and even though I had seen this a few times inside a sub floor before, this was the first time that I had seem them literally just walking around on top of a surface inside an area such as a bedroom.
I gave the home owner 2 practical options in regards to treatments and future protection and since, we have prioritized this treatment plan, as clearly, something needs to be done and quickly. With our plan, we are determined to cease the activity as quickly as possible to minimize any further termite damage.
