Don’t Forget Those Regular Termite Reports

“Regular termite reports are often the difference between preventing termite infestation, which saves thousands of dollars, or having to shell out more money to repair damages from an undetected termite infestation.” – Bruce Gow

Most people will arrange to get termite reports when they first purchase a new home. But a lot of these people tend to forget to arrange regular inspectons some years down the track – and that’s when they run into problems with undetected termite attack and subsequent timber damage.

Are you diligent when it comes to protecting your home from termites? How often do you arrange your termite reports? It’s an unfortunate fact that in the past couple of years, many people have found themselves struggling financially, and have found it necessary to cut back expenses wherever they can.

But regular termite inspections shouldn’t be on the ‘optional’ expense list because it’s a budget cut back that may leave you much worse off in the future.

Termite inspectionsshould be conducted at least once a year, and if you live in an area where the termite problem is well known or homes have been damaged in the past, then consideration should be given to scheduling the inspections twice a year, or even investing in a termite barrier or another appropriate termite control solution.

Good Reasons to Keep Up Regular Termite Reports Many home owners are unaware of just how quickly subterranean termites can damage the wooden structure of a home. These troublesome insects live in large colonies, often containing hundreds of thousands of ‘soldier’ and ‘worker’ termites. They have voracious appetites and if they remain undiscovered in (or under) a home for several months, the damage bill can be in the thousands of dollars.

Of course, having your home inspected for timber pests every six or twelve months won’t prevent termites from attacking your home but what it may do is alert you to their presence so that you can arrange termite extermination promptly if need be. If you want to take termite protection a step further, and you can afford to, then you might consider a more pro-active approach like installing a termite barrier or termite baits, or a combination of the two.

This may cost in the vicinity of $3000-$5000 for the average suburban home however, if termites are known to be active nearby, it can be a very worthwhile investment. If, like so many other home owners, you’re struggling financially at the moment, do try to keep up your termite inspections at the very least. It’s an inexpensive measure that could save you from a hefty repair bill for termite damage.

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."

"Bruce solved our commercial pest control problem in Castle Hill. Cockroaches were throughout our factory and they were completely gone after two visits from his exterminators. Just seeing one cockroach can lose us clients. I know now everyhing is ok, and our reputation is intact"
