If termite activities are detected within the property during the inspection, our inspector will recommend the best course of action. Chemical treatment is not the only way of addressing the issue, other options are also available depending on different situations.
Get Rid of the Live Termites
First, A termite nest eradication/live termite activity control treatment need to be carried out. After the treatment, we will return to the property to check again in 2-4 weeks time. Follow-up treatments will be required with No Extra Charges until all termite activities are ceased. Radar sensor will be used to confirm the result in front of the customer. We will revisit the property in 2-4 weeks again after every follow-up treatment. Our customer only need to pay one single fee which is quoted before the job commence and no more other fees or hidden charges after that.
How if termite activities are detected by the property owner before the professional inspection?
Answer: Termites are “silent eaters”. Without annual professional inspections, property owners usually don’t know they’re there until substantial damage has been done. Once termite activities are found in the property, do not disturb them, do not tackle termites yourself by using any types of aerosol or DIY termite spray. Please be aware that a termite nest may have a population of up to 1 million. Chemical spraying can kill a part of its population but will not eliminate the whole nest. Instead, it will scare the termites and result in them beating a hasty retreat to attack somewhere else in the same building. This makes it worse as now the detected termite activities become undetected again. Please note that the property is not safe until the whole population of the termite nest have been completely eliminated. Get expert help once termite activities are detected and make sure to always check BOTH the PMT (Pest Management Technician) license and current CoC (Certificate of Currency) of anyone who claims to be an expert in the area. Only licensed pest control technician that ALSO qualified to carry out timber pest jobs has the CoC that covers both Termite Management and Timber Pest Inspections.
