Termites are an essential part of our pest management service. Australians, often tend to refer to termites as “white ants” due to their colour and close physical similarity to ants. They are one of the most destructive pests to a home owner causing unbelievable amounts of structural damage to Australian homes.
There are a number of termite (white ant) control solutions and each individual situation needs to be considered. As with cockroaches and ants, there are many different species of termites (white ants). Some are particularly aggressive (with regards to timber attack) and others not so aggressive. Therefore, proper identification of the termite (white ant) species is essential in developing a successful treatment plan.
In solving your pest problem, we believe there is a process that needs to be strictly followed. Firstly, we start with the pest identification stage. This is essential because we need to determine exactly what your pest problem is so we can recommend the correct and safest solution.
Some of the more common pests which we are called upon to treat are spiders (the most dangerous species being Red Back spiders, White Tail or White Tipped spiders and, of course, Funnel Web spiders). Other spiders, although not as dangerous as these 3 mentioned, can still cause problems and include Huntsman spiders, Black House spiders, Garden Orb-Weaving spiders and St Andrews Cross spiders.
Ants are always a major problem as are cockroaches . Different species of cockroaches (and ants) infest buildings in different ways. It is, therefore, imperative that we identify exactly which ant or cockroach species is infesting your dwelling. As an example, the treatment for a “german cockroach” infestation differs greatly to the treatment of an “Australian Cockroach”, “American Cockroach” or “Smoky Brown Cockroach” infestation. Similarly, treatment for “Common Black Ants” would be different to treatment for “Coastal Brown Ants”.
