Don't be eaten out of house and home … protect yourself with Pacific International Insurance Limited TimberSecure®
Termites can literally eat you out of house and home!
Australia has the most destructive termites in the world. A recent CSIRO survey revealed more than one in every five homes had termite damage, with an estimated damage bill of more than $100 million every year.
What Do You Know About Termites in Australia?
Chances are - very little. In fact, you may not even know you have termites in your home, until it is too late. Our most important termite species live in underground nests containing up to two million wood eating termites.
That's a lot of hungry mouths that travel fifty metres, or more, in search of food. And your home provides them with a smorgasbord to feast upon. The trouble is, as the termites travel underground, and enter your home by concealed mud tunnels, you may have no idea they're ready to devour your place.
Termites get right inside the timber to feed. So they may be feasting away, hidden in your walls, or hollowing out the support timbers in your roof, without you knowing. They could also be dining on the timbers in your subfloor.
And please don't think that just because your home is built on a concrete slab you're safe from marauding termites. Termites build shelter tubes over the edge of slabs, or enter through shrinkage cracks and around pipes. When they're hungry, and that's all the time, nothing will stop a termite grabbing a quick lunch.
It's a Worry
Imagine what it would feel like to move into your dream home, and find it devastated by termites.
It happens, and that is the worry. A big worry, because even after having a timber pest inspection, it is not uncommon for termite damage to be discovered. You see the presence of termites often only revealed when you start to renovate. The other big worry is that your Home Insurance will not protect you.
It's a Bigger Worry to find out the Hard Way.
Greg & Chris Johnson thought they were doing it the right way when they moved into their new home. Well, why not? In their hands was a report showing the house was free of termites. May be so, but within a few months they were confronted with their worst nightmare. Their home had been eaten by termites, a big dinner bill that amounted to $100,000.
