Australia’s Termite Management Standard Revised

Termite Pest Control Mandurah

Standards Australia has recently published a revision of AS 3660.2—2017, Termite management Part 2: In and around existing buildings and structures.

This Standard works with AS 3660.1–2014 Termite management Part 1: New building work providing tools to manage termite risks to both existing structures and after construction of new buildings.

Australia is home to approximately 350 species of termites, about 30 of which have achieved pest status. Termites eat cellulose and many will eat timber and timber products, and common items around homes such as furniture, paper and fabrics.

Termite colonies that infest structures usually begin outside and gain entry to structures via the ground. This Standard seeks to provide guidance for the detection and management of this type of termite activity in and around existing buildings and structures.

In commenting on the Standard, Chair of Standards Australia Technical Committee BD074 and representative of the Total Environment Centre, Dr Don Ewart, said “termites pose an often overlooked threat to health and safety, and their weakening of structures increases the likelihood of serious damage in the case of a storm, flood or fire.”

“The revision of this Standard has meant the management of termites is no longer just a matter of choosing what chemical for which situation, but consumers can now make decisions based on inspection data and management proposals to decide on the best way to manage termites in homes, offices, and buildings right across Australia,” added Dr Ewart. “The Standard also aims to facilitate better communication between specialist timber pest managers and building owners and managers.”

Industry, government and consumer representatives all contributed to the work of Committee BD-074, and should be commended for their efforts in revising AS 3660.2.

With the impact of termites so widespread in Australia, industry and consumers are reminded to remain vigilant in managing these damaging pests.
