Termites are very prevalent on Mainland Australia. While they are found everywhere, they’re most common within 100km of the coast which coincides with the vast majority of our urban areas. Experts say that more than one third of all properties in our urban areas have termites present somewhere on that land and that at some stage or other, as many as half the properties will have termite activity inside the homes.
The risk of termite damage inside your property is relatively high and the damage bill can start under $1000 but easily exceed $10,000 if there is structural damage.
So what is the best way to protect your property?
Think of your termite control strategy as an insurance policy
Whether you need to protect your own home (primary place of residence or PPOR) or your IP (investment Property), you’ll need to decide the level of risk mitigation you want to take in relation to termites. The best way to do it is think of your options as different levels of insurance policy. If you go naked you save money by not having to pay for an insurance policy but the risk the most in terms of costs if you do get an infestation. Like insurance policies, the higher the premium you pay reduces the risk of termite damage.
There’s three strategies you need to consider
