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.

Exterminating a termite colony will take time depending on its size, but with good choice and application of treatment, the first results will be visible in one or two days. It will only be a matter of time until your property becomes completely termite-free.
