Knowing how to detect and find a termite infestation is half the battle. As they reside inside of wood, with their entry points sometimes completely obscured by paint or wallpaper, it can be hard to notice that your house is crumbling at this very moment.
Be extra alert for these signs:
For true peace of mind, take up these measures to prevent an infestation:
If you see any of these, then it’s time to act fast and call Active Pest Control Management for Termite Inspection Services Sydney. If not, you may not be completely in the clear, but you can breathe a bit easier.
If you need extra help or tips for termite prevention, 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.
If the infestation has been resolved, you may cover up small holes in wood with wood hardener. If the damage is too extensive, however, you will need professional wood restoration services for this.
Sydney tends to have very humid weather around June. It’s a good idea to schedule a yearly termite inspection with a pest control expert a month or two after the end of the peak rainy season so that you catch potential termite invasions early on.
Killing off the entire colony will take time depending on how large it was, but with effective application of treatment, you will begin seeing results in one or two days. With a bit of patience and trust in expertise, you will soon have a termite-free home.
