Learning how to find and detect a termite infestation is half the battle. Termite nests are usually invisible, located inside walls or underground. When they burrow into wood, their entry points might be covered up by paint or wallpaper as well, making it hard to notice that your house is losing its integrity.
If you need extra help or tips for fighting against termites, don’t hesitate to give Active Pest Control Management a call!

If you see any of these, then it’s time to act fast and call Active Pest Control Management for Termite Treatment Services Sydney. Even if you don’t spot any now, it’s a good idea to remain vigilant.
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.
Termite bait is usually placed outside of the property some distance away, so that the termites are not directly attracted to the building itself. For termite barriers, they form a perimeter in the soil around your property, repelling the insects from burrowing towards you.
While it would be too soon to say whether or not your house also has a termite infestation, the fact that your neighbour was affected may mean that the general area you live in is suitable for termites to live in. Keep an eye out for them, and call Active Pest Control Management to do an inspection if you suspect anything.
Once a year is enough for periodic termite inspections. Termite barriers can last for up to five years, which means there generally isn’t a need to have termite prevention redone actively.
