No matter how old or new your home is termites can damage your property. Termites commonly enter properties, undetected usually through below ground soil tunnels. Termite colony populations can range in size from very small to enormous societies with several million individuals working together to chew through timber structures of your home, shed and other buildings, leaving paper-thin supports.
Entry points into buildings are normally concealed by poor design or building practices, gardens, stored items or they can go unnoticed during some out dated inspection techniques. This is why Radar Pest Control use the latest technology and are thorough with termite inspections of your home or business.
Many termite species can do great damage to buildings and other wooden structures if they are not stopped. Their habit of remaining concealed often results in their presence being undetected until the timbers are severely damaged, leaving only a thin layer of wall that protects them from the environment.
