Over grown or mature plants are the perfect hiding places for tree stumps.
Tree stumps may look normal on the outside but we can never be sure with out drilling and testing whether active termites are present within the stump.
Whilst carrying out an inspection in Currumbin Valley I located a tree stump under a mature Elephant Ears plant. Without carrying out a thorough inspection of the property the tree stump would have never been located.
After carrying out a further inspection of the stump an active termites nest was located in the base. The termites located in this stump were attacking a house located on the property 20 metres away.
As you can see from the photo we drilled the stump and treated the active termites. Thankfully no more problems for this house.
