Melbourne, Australia – Nov. 7, 2015 – The termite specialists at Everyday Pest Control are masters of their profession who undergo extensive training. Insect eliminators have the knowledge and expertise to identify insects, diagnose and treat a wide range of infestations, primary of which is termites.
Termites are one of the most destructive insects that afflict property owners, causing more than $5 billion in damages each year. They burrow into and eat wood, weakening it as they go. They construct tubes and tunnels, allowing colony members to travel in safety and out of sight. Termites can live up to 250 ft. away from their primary food source.
There are different types of termites, some of which live in the structures they consume while others reside in the soil and commute to their selected food source. The members of a termite hive are voracious eaters, consuming wood 24/7.
No home is immune to an infestation, even those built of brick. The interior frames are constructed of wood and provide a tasty treat for the insects. A single termite queen can live to be up to 50 years old and produce more than 500,000 offspring during her life cycle.
While termites are unwelcome guests for property owners, they perform an important function in the wild. Termites accelerate the breakdown of decomposing and decaying wood that nourishes the soil, providing a rich environment for new growth. They create ventilation systems for the colony that that aerates the soil.
Termites are also methane producing insects, releasing up to 50 million tons of methane gas into the atmosphere each year, a greenhouse gas associated with pollution and global warming. Subterranean termites also create methane, but the majority of the emissions are contained underground and absorbed by the soil. Carbon dioxide is also produced by termites that plants use to conduct photosynthesis.
The Everyday Pest Control termite specialists utilize Altriset® for treating infestations of the insects. It begins to work within a few hours after application and is easily transferred to the colony, while remaining safe for people and pets. A termite infestation can happen to anyone and Everyday Pest Control has the expertise, experience and knowledge to deal successfully with new and existing colonies.
