Which is why, having a regular termite inspection by the professional is your first step in preventing major damages to your property.

Termite inspection also helps to correctly identify the termite species, which will then enable the professional to choose the most effective method to get rid of them. Helping to save you time, money and worry.

  • DIY Termite Control Solutions

    Nowadays you can easily find DIY termite control solutions that are marketed as a cheaper method to get rid of your termite infestations.

    Many homeowners who encountered termites infestation for the first time would choose this alternative instead of engaging a termite control specialist. However, there are risks involved when using these DIY kits:
    - Incorrect application may endanger you, your family and pets’ health.
    - Some DIY kits claim to eliminate the whole colony but if bait is not palatable to the termite species, you might end up with an ineffective solution.
    - It is crucial to check the DIY product label and ensure that you are using are in line with the Pesticide Act 1974 - Pesticide (Licensing For Sale And Storage For Sale) Rules, 2007.
    - Regular monitoring is needed during and after the treatment process because although visually you can’t see the termites anymore, it is still possible that they are infesting other areas of your home.

    Contrary to common beliefs that DIY termite control method can save you money, it actually costs you more in the long run. Besides that, termites may have built an extensive colony beneath or outside of your home, which can make treatment and prevention a complex job that is best left to the termite control professionals.
