Termite Treatments Protect Heritage
Amalgamated Pest Control Caboolture was contacted by a property owner in the Somerset Region. This was a special property with a lot of heritage.
He had termites in a very old hay shed. We set up an Exterra baiting system to treat a few nests that were located in the timber hay shed.
We have since carried out 4 visits to the property and glad to report that we have the termites under control.
The owner did not want to demolish the shed or have to rebuild it as it was very old, and the shed along with the whole property carried a lot of history with it.
After several visits the termite activity slowed right down until all termite activity in the old hay shed ceased.
This does not mean that termites can’t return.
It’s vital that a continual program of termite inspections is carried out to make sure that new termite colonies don’t pick up where the others left off.
A bit of history about this property
This property has been in the family for over 100 years and back when the property was first settled it was actually a township.
The small area boasted at one stage up to 12 houses, a black smith, butcher, store, stables, main homestead and several single men quarters. It was a busy little village in its era.
Over the years a lot has changed. Most of the houses have been removed and the ‘township’ as it was known has since been down graded to a cattle property.
Several of the original buildings still exist on the property.
The butchers, black smith and general store all still stand in the original spots where they were built.
The Hay shed that we were called out to treat is one of the first buildings that was put on the property when it was first settled.
We were privileged to be able to help preserve a piece of history and save it from the termites that were slowly destroying it.
We are very lucky to be welcomed into people’s homes and proprieties on a daily basis.
