Termite Inspections, Termite Treatments and Termite Protection in Harcourt

Termites are always foraging for food, building networks of tunnels to find new food sources to feed their growing population. The main pest termites are subterranean termites tend to remain well hidden, their presence often only being spotted once significant damage has been done. 

It is recommended that homeowners have a professional termite inspection every year, to check for evidence of termites in or near the house. During the inspection, one of our professional inspectors will thoroughly inspect the building and surrounding area for signs of termites, noting potential ‘weak spots’ that might allow termites to gain entry e.g. a wood pile stacked close to the house, or fence timbers in contact with the soil. If activity is identified and a termite treatment is needed, our inspector will clearly outline the options available and explain how the treatments work. 

With termites, defence is the best form of attack. Installing a termite protection system is the best way to deter termites from gaining access to a property. The two common options are: a baiting system, which sees bait stations pushed into the soil at regular intervals around the property; and a soil treatment, where are liquid termiticide is applied to the soil around the perimeter of the property, essentially creating a “termite barrier”. The choice of system depends on a number of factors, such as the building construction, soil type, susceptibility of the area to flooding, to name a few. Termite protection systems such as these are the most effective form of defence against termite attack.

About Harcourt

Harcourt is a small town 31 km south of Bendigo, traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung tribe. Harcourt lies at the foot of Mount Alexander and is a historic goldrush town, after a shepherd first discovered gold in 1851. The decline of gold mining saw Harcourt becoming an apple growing town, known for its premium fruit. Today, Harcourt is still considered the apple centre of Victoria, with cider and wine production growing in popularity.

As well as apples, Harcourt is well known for its granite stone, which was mined extensively in the 1860s and is used widely across the country. Granite from Harcourt was used for many high profile buildings in the country including Parliament House in Canberra and the John Flynn Memorial at Alice Springs.

Mount Alexander Regional Park is 3 km east of Harcourt and features scenic bush walks through Harcourt Valley. It also includes the historic oak forest that was established by the tanning industry for producing acorns.

Harcourt was named after Sir William Vernon Harcourt who was the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the British parliament at the time.
