Talk about some extreme termite damage! We came across this extensive damage at a home that had a termite infestation with live termites in various areas throughout the house. This timber framed wall had been taken apart to make the damage visible however would be completely invisible if the plasterboard wall covering was still fitted.
Bestwest Building & Pest were successful in removing the termite infestation from this home. We provided the customer with an extensive termite barrier to ensure we had the best possibility of killing the termites, this included drilling around the internal perimeter of the room with all of the visible damage. This home did not have any prevantative termite protection before our treatment!
You can see the extensive termite activity within the walls in the photos below. You can also see the massive termite trail in the roof frame. The termites had travelled higher into the roof frame and completely destroyed this section, as well as traveling across to the other side of the house and damaging more roof frame timbers there.
This is another example of why all homes need to be protected with an external termite barrier to minimise the risk of infestation! Contact Bestwest Building today for all your Pest Control needs. Call us now on 0894449562.
