Termites found in property at Avoca

This week we found live termites in a tree stump and garden bed timbers.  This was during a Building & Pest inspection on a 5 acre block at Avoca. 

Things to remember include

  • Untreated timber & timber in contact with soil should be inspected regularly for pest activity
  • Although the site had been inspected 4 months previously, termites were not detected on that occasion
  • Vigilance is paramount.

Ceiling insulation causes a fire hazard – Avenell Heights

Insulation in this roof void is in contact with the back of the recessed light fixtures causing a potential fire hazard. Insulation must be kept clear of the backs of recessed lights by at least 200mm or a cowl (available from all electrical supply stores) should be placed around such lights to prevent insulation from contacting lights.
