Detecting and finding a termite infestation is half the battle. As their nests are usually obscured within walls or underground, and their entry points often covered up by paint or wallpaper, it can be hard to notice that your house is slowly getting chewed up.

If you need extra help or tips for fighting against termites, don’t hesitate to give Active Pest Control Management a call!
After getting your call, we’ll come to your location and do a pest inspection in Sydney for termites. Besides looking for common visual cues, we use specialised equipment to detect termite activity underground or in the walls.
If you’ve seen where the termites are or have an idea of where they might be nesting, tell us to speed up the process. We will still be thorough with the rest of the building, however, as there could always be more than one nest, or multiple types of pests.
Once we know for sure where the termites are, we get to work exterminating them.
Depending on how large the hive has grown, drastic measures may need to be taken. Either way, the goal is to get fast results, as termites multiply and cause damage at an alarming rate. Our professional methods can kill off swarms of termites in a matter of days, all the while remaining eco-friendly and non-toxic to humans or pets.
After some time has passed, we can come back to check if the termites have died off completely yet. It’s important to make sure that the termite hive has been destroyed entirely to be certain that there won’t be a resurgence.
After this stage, it’s a good idea to get the wooden structures devoured by termites replaced or repaired. The new wood needs to be kept dry so that a new hive of termites doesn’t come along to restart the issue.
Pre-construction termite treatment can be done any time before the actual construction starts. Ideally, this should be done before raw materials are transported onto the site so that there is no chance of exposure to termites.
The design of the building does change where the optimal locations for pre-construction termite treatment would be. Communicate with your building contractor to help give us an idea of what to expect, so we can plan out the best anti-termite strategy.
Both physical and chemical termite barriers are highly effective for pre-construction termite treatment. Which one is more suited to your property depends on the design of the building and other factors.
