As a home owner in Sydney’s North Shore or Northern Beaches you need to know your home insurance does not cover you for pest damage. Termites can destroy the wooden frame of a house before any signs appear.
A regular termite inspection is essential. Finding out your home needs major repairs and that home insurance will not pay you is a shock to owners.
A home termite monitoring system places baits around the perimeter of your home. This allow easy detection of termite activity. Once detected it is much easier to add poison to these bait areas. The termites then carry the poison back to their nest. This is far more effective as kills the colony rather than just a few.
Most home owners pay insurance thinking they are safe. The cost of regular pest inspections and monitoring is small compared to the cost of repairs.
