Where in Sydney do you service?

We service the entire Sydney metropolitan area. Contact us if you are outside this area.

Why do you need to perform regular inspections?

Getting termite inspections at least once a year is important to ensure your home is protected from termite damage. Not only can termites be difficult to find, but the structural damage they can cause is also severe. Some homeowners only notice the damage once they rearrange furniture or once costly repairs are already needed.

What are the signs to look out for?

The most common signs of a termite infestation are mud tunnels and damage to wood. Once you notice these signs the termites could virtually be anywhere. The mud tunnels can often be hard to find as they are hidden (for example, behind a cupboard, under the sink or carpet).

How long will it take to rid my property of termites?

Ridding your home of an infestation is certainly not a simple process. Before treatment, it is important for the pest control professional to identify the species of termite, the number of leads and which places to treat before selecting the treatment that will offer the best results. The process duration depends on many factors including the:

• Size of the colony.
• Time of year.
• Type of treatment being used.

It roughly takes around two or three months for results from significant infestations. The sooner we discover and treat the problem, the less damage there will be for you to repair and the shorter the treatment process will be. This is why regular inspections are essential. Prevention is key.

What treatment methods do you use?

We pride ourselves on offering a range of treatment methods to suit our client’s circumstances. We provide environmentally friendly and organic solutions such as DuPont Altriset or the baiting method along with responsibly applied chemical treatment alternatives. All our treatments are compliant with Australian standards.

 

Once an inspection is complete, we thoroughly discuss the treatment options with our clients, including each of their benefits and disadvantages, to allow them to make an informed decision.

What prevention methods do you use?

Talk to us about physical and chemical barriers. These can be installed when you are building a new house, doing a substantial renovation, and depending on the house, can be retrofitted. We also have years of experience and plenty of great tips on things you can do to deter termites from moving into your house.

How long will the inspection take?

Inspections usually take around two hours.
