We deal in all aspects of pest control management from insects to arachnids, cockroaches and rodents. Our main area of focus is termites as approximately one in every three houses are affected in some way. Termites have the potential to cause major structural damage and financial expense to the average home owner.
Since the 1995 barring of organo chlorines (aside from physical and chemical barriers) bait monitoring systems have been widely used in the identification and eradication procedures and are less intrusive. With extensive experience in Nemesis and Sentricon systems we can offer a range of termite management alternatives, including HomeGuard and Termidor applications.
Many home owners are unaware that termites fly. Colonising flights occur during periods of moderate temperatures and high humidity, often before or after a storm. The colonising flight usually originates very close to the main nest. With warmer weather approaching, that is the time of the year that insects become more active and commence their breeding cycles, so now is the time to take action.
