Termites are relatively common in Victoria, including in certain suburbs of Melbourne. However, providing an exhaustive and specific list of suburbs where termites are more common is challenging due to various factors that influence termite activity, such as local environmental conditions, construction practices, and termite species distribution. Additionally, termite populations can fluctuate over time.

That being said, there are some general factors to consider when assessing termite risk in Melbourne suburbs:

  1. Coastal Areas: Suburbs near the coast or bay areas, such as Brighton, Sandringham, and Beaumaris, may have higher termite activity due to the proximity to moist environments and potential termite nesting sites.


  1. Bushland and Greenbelt Areas: Suburbs with extensive bushland or greenbelt areas nearby, such as Eltham, Warrandyte, and Templestowe, may have a higher likelihood of termite presence. Termites can thrive in natural habitats and potentially extend their foraging range to nearby properties.


  1. Older Suburbs: Older suburbs with established housing stock, such as Camberwell, Kew, and Essendon, may have a higher risk of termite infestations due to the age and construction methods of buildings. Older homes may have more vulnerabilities that can attract termites.


  1. Suburban Interface: Suburbs that lie at the interface between urban areas and natural habitats, such as Doncaster, Ringwood, and Eltham, may have an increased risk of encountering termites. These areas provide a transition zone where termites from natural habitats can potentially come into contact with residential properties.


It’s important to note that the presence of termites can vary within each suburb, and termite activity can be found in other areas not specifically mentioned. To accurately assess termite risk for a specific property, it is recommended to consult with Professional Termite Control Melbourne, your or termite specialist, who can conduct a thorough inspection and provide tailored advice based on the property’s location and construction characteristics.
