What Makes A Suburb Bad For Termites?


Recently, we did an investigation into the suburbs of Brisbane worst effected by termites. However, for some people, there still remains a burning question about why these suburbs are hit so hard by the pests. Fortunately, Conquer Termites Northside and our team of experts can help you understand what attracts termites to any given suburb. For help with all termites in Brisbane, call us on (07) 3356 8801.

Termites don't spread out evenly across the country, and instead have regions they prefer to congregate. As with most pests, termites are attracted to any region where they can find food, water, and shelter. This means that suburbs with lots of trees, such as gumtrees or melaleuca quinquenervias (commonly known as paperbark trees), or with regions with high moisture retention, like creeks or rivers, can quickly find themselves swarming with termites. Alternatively, in suburbs with a lower average build quality, termites might be more easily able to slip into your home and begin to build a colony before spreading into the rest of the community, creating a high termite incidence. Either way, once termites have become common in the region, it can become very difficult to eradicate them entirely, and it is best that you do everything you can to protect your home and assets from termite damage. With termite hotspots spread around the country, it's important that you understand what will attract the pest to any given suburb.
