Environmentally Safe Solutions

by Bruce Gow

Hi Bruce,

I like to thank you and your team for a pest control job well done. Peter’s customer service was just outstanding.

"Knowing that we have small children in the house, he took the time to explain in length the treatment he was about to do for us and that is was safe for us and our kids. He was on time, professional and polite."

"I highly recommend A1 Pest Control to anyone looking for great customer service, safe and effective treatment and to top it all off at a very good price."

Thank you,

Michaela & Dave Marsfield

Below is a small clip where our pest control operator, Peter Donnelly, describes termite activity and evidence on a property in The Hills District, NSW.

We have now acquired the best termite inspection & detection tools in the industry, a Fluke Thermal Imaging Camera and Termatrac's latest detection device, the T3I. Less than 5 firms in Sydney have this powerful pest management combination!

Visual termite inspections are only guesswork as the pest inspector can only rely upon sight, tapping timbers with a plastic donger, and moisture meters that pick up moisture readings!

Wouldn't you rather have the most accurate inspections available in the industry for your most valuable asset?

Termite Inspections?

If you are ever required to undergo a home building inspection when you are buying or selling your home, we are able to provide very concise pest reports, (also knownas a pest inspections) termite reports and of course, advise you on your best protection against TERMITES.

We also consult to other timber inspection firms for problem jobs that have undertaken certified inspection reports that haven't picked up problems because of lack of access.

Pest Management Sydney

Safety, environmental care and customer service are our foremost concerns when treating your home or business.

We will never, ever any use fuming-type insectides that will help drive you right out of your home. Also we promise NEVER to slop pools of spray all over your floors. Some of our competition have a really bad reputation for that sort of negligence, and we will not go down that path.

Only environmentally aware are responsible treatments are ever performed by our firm, and our informed pest management breaks down the breeding cycle using very low or non-toxic insecticides & pesticides.

How long does it take to finish a typical treatment?
Normally a trained, licensed technician will take around an hour or less for most suburban homes and a little longer for termite inspections and pest reports.

Most businesses are serviced in under an hour, as we will only treat the infested areas of the property.

We are worried about the smell. are there any smells inside after treatment?
No, there is no chance of that. Our low-toxic insecticides are 100% odour-free inside the interior of buildings and on the outside there may have a slight odour until it is dry - on most days it will dry in under a half an hour.

What does a service cost?
The cost will vary depending upon your individual needs and your situation. Call us any time to find out exactly which of our plans will suit your needs. You are welcome to talk to at any time to our informed technicians or our office staff who will quickly guide you to your best plan.

Below is a video detailing some of the equipment used in our General Pest treatment.

Super Accurate & Economic Detection of Termites is our Methodology!

Do you know that standard moisture meters will only pick up moisture, Thermal imaging cameras may detect just sources of heat, but only our Termatrac equipment can pick up actual termite activity! See some of the astonishing Termatrac Case Studies

Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide

Easily detect termite risk areas by accurately identifying heat sources generated by termites within common building structures. Excellent distance-to-spot ratio for quick area scanning.

Moisture Sensor

Easily detect potential termite risk areas by the concentrated presence of moisture. As easy to use as a traditional Moisture Meter.

Bluetooth wireless link to PDA Unit

PDA data analysis, storage and easy report generation. Additional customer data on hand. Basic PDA / Handheld computer functionality also accessible.

Home Inspection, Pest report or Termite Inspection. What’s the difference? Call us today about these terms and get great advice about drainage problems and ventilation.

We have fully accredited Termidor technicians who use Integrated Pest Management (I.P.M.) for your low toxic and non-toxic solutions.

Eliminate your white-ant concerns faster, saving you time, expenses and heartache.

We use Termidor for Sydney termite control - a new environmentally safe breakthrough in termite management. "People are in the habit of getting pest reports and termite inspections when they purchase a new home, but a lot of the time, that is the last inspection they ever get".

For Pre-construction termite protection we use "HomeGuard" and are proudly Eflex Accredited Operators. HomeGuard products must also be installed by a FMC HomeGuard Accredited Operator to qualify for the FMC Million Dollar Warranty.

Bruce Gow says; "I often inspect homes after the damage is already done and the owner finds signs of infestation. When I find active subterranean termites and ask about what sort of termite protection is in place, I often get confused looks on the faces of clients.

They often say that their pests such as spiders, cockroaches, rodents, fleas, etc are ok and have always been treated yearly.

That doesn't actually mean that their homes are going to be safe from termite infestation!

If you want an accurate account of your best asset (your home) you will need to at least have 12 monthly termite inspections according to the Australian Standard 3660. Pest reports by competent technicians are more important in today's world than ever before."

Termidor termite barriers combined with termite baits are our best recommendation for long term white ant management. If you are renting, moving out, and fleas need to be treated, see our page on End of Lease Flea Treatment
