TERMITE TREATMENT INSPECTION FAQS
Termites pose a real threat to both new and existing homes and buildings. These silent invaders often go undetected until severe damage is done. Our team will do a thorough termite inspection and treatment to ensure we eradicate the termites.
Coastwide Pest Control recommend that a full termite inspection is carried out al all properties at least once a year.
A termite inspection is recommended at least once a year because if termites are found in this 12 month period the damage is generally manageable. For properties that have had an initial assessment and deemed high risk, the inspections should be more frequent.
There is no 100% guarantee that termites will not return after treatments. This is why it is essential that your property is inspected at least once a year.
We will inspect your property for any signs of termite activity. Once we have determined you have termites we will have you sign a termite agreement to ensure you understand the process involved.
We will then proceed to carry out a comprehensive termite inspection that allows us to collate all detectable areas of termite activity, evaluate the level of damage, determine entry points and record any issues that may have led to your property getting termites in the first place.
After we have established all termite activity we start the treatment phase. There is a range of products we can use here and we decide what is the best based on our assessment of the situation. Elimination of termites can take between a couple of weeks and a couple of months depending on species & scale on infestiation.
Once we have treated the termite infestation we install a management system around your property to prevent future termite attacks. We also recommend regular termite inspections (once a year) to maintain the warranty on the termite management system.
