Here are some of our most common questions our clients ask
Get at least one annual termite inspections by your licensed and insured Epest termite inspector. Remember, your home is likely the biggest investment you will ever make, much larger than your car which also requires regular servicing.
Do not let anyone tell you termites will not eat hardwood. We have seen termites that avoid pine and only eat hardwood timbers, and some species are not fussy at all. Steel framed homes are not exempt from termite attacks either.
Do not disturb active termites inside your home as it can cause them to leave the damaged area and move elsewhere within your home. DIY treatments of termite infestations seldom work and can cost you more in the long run. Leave the termite treatment to your professional termite control technician to eradicate the infestation.
Do not store conducive materials against the external walls of your home or under buildings that may attract termites eg, firewood, cardboard boxes, timber pallets etc. Be sure to fix any signs of leaky outdoor taps too.
Reduce areas of moisture in or around the home and fix any signs of leaky taps. Implement your termite inspector’s recommendations, after all, that is why you engaged the termite inspector to inspect your home in the first place.
