What to do if you find Termites
If you happen to locate Termites on your property DO NOT DISTURB or REMOVE them. Call us immediately, as any attempt to disturb or remove them prior to treating could fractionate the nest, causing the Termites to relocate into unknown areas which makes eradication more difficult.
Termite nests in your garden or in trees on your property should ring alarm bells – any nest on your property should be considered too close for comfort! Call us immediately to arrange an urgent inspection and eradication.
Do not neglect your annual Maintenance services, saving a couple of dollars in the short term could cost you thousands long term if there are active Termites on your property and they remain untreated.
A termite inspection is applicable to all homes and will cover all accessible areas such as roof voids and the internal and external of the property. A report is compiled highlighting any termite or white ant activity or damage found. It will also make reference to conditions that make your home more favourable to termites or white ants eg poor drainage, plumbing leaks, garden timbers etc. It may also include any treatment recommendations and signs of previous treatments.
