More than one in every five homes in Australia has had termite damage. It can take as little as 3 months for a termite colony to severely damage almost all the timber in a home.
The annual damage bill, to homes in Australia from termites, is estimated at more than $100 million every year, some even say that it could be as high as $950 million annually.
