Mawson Lakes is one of the newer housing developments in Adelaide. It was developed to encourage families to move to the area.
Waterways are a prominent feature and many locals can be found walking around the lake. This was heralded as win for the environment with the water from rains being harvested and stored.
Many native animals benefited from the permanent water supply. It allowed insects to breed up in significant numbers providing a ready made food source.
Unfortunately, it helped to dramatically increase the number of pests. As pests like spiders, mice and rats relished the conditions.
This has resulted in Jim’s Pest Control Mawson Lakes being very busy treating pests in the area.
Jim’s Pest Control Mawson Lakes – discovering hidden termites
Mawson Lakes was built on an old salt pan. There were various trees that were cleared to make way for new homes.
Most of this timber was simply pushed over and buried under mounds of dirt. A great example of this is the large piles of dirt that back onto the railway lines.
Did you know that buried timber provides ideal conditions in order for termite colonies to establish themselves?
A termite’s main purpose in the environment is to return timber that is not in-service, back into the soil. They are very good a doing this. One termite species has the capability of eating an entire house in a few short months.
It is very distressing for owners and technicians, when we discover sever termite damage.
