Do Termites Eat Treated Timber?

Termites won’t eat Treated Timber… FALSE!

Yes, you are better off using treated timber but it does not mean you are not at risk of termite attack & decay.

Here is a retaining wall which has suffered termite damage, decay & movement. This is due to age, poor construction & poor drainage.

When looking at prospective properties you wish to purchase, it is always important to not just look at the house itself but also inspect retaining walls, fences, surface water drainage, swimming pools and other areas to prevent unexpected surprises at your Building & Pest Inspection.
