Termites Are Everywhere In Perth
When you purchase or build a home, you want to feel safe and secure. You’ve poured your life savings into this investment, after all. But, for many Perth homeowners, there could be a silent, invisible enemy lurking beneath the surface gnawing their way through your walls, ceilings, flooring and furniture, causing devastating, expensive, irreparable damage without you even knowing. We’re talking about termites – a nasty army of white ant-like insects that can attack your property at any time from the inside out, until it’s too late.
The problem is, if a termite colony decides to nest in your home, they move fast. While things may seem fine at the surface, an average colony could be growing out of sight, producing up to 30,000 eggs per day, and destroying up to 2-metres of wood a week. And don’t be fooled by what you hear. It’s not just wood they’re attracted to. They’ll sink their teeth (yes, they have teeth!) into all kinds of materials – from your walls and ceiling, untreated outdoor furniture, electrical cables, paper products, fabrics, clothing, footwear, plastic, building sealants, rigid foam insulation, and so much more. Nothing is off limits!
Defend Through Prevention
At Pesti Pest Control, we have an expert Perth termite inspection team ready to defend and protect your home against these silent destroyers. We understand you may be feeling a wave of panic and hopelessness not knowing if you have a termite problem and the level of devastation they have caused. But don’t worry, we’re here to take away all that stress for you! We believe prevention is the best possible solution for Perth termites, so you have the barriers in place to ensure you’re never in a position where these nasty pests have caused serious damage to your home.
Trust us, when we say ‘we’ve seen it all’ – rotting floorboards and collapsed ceilings and walls when homeowners have been complacent – we’re here to make sure this doesn’t happen to you! The worst part – most home insurance policies won’t protect you against termite damage, so it’s more important than ever to enlist a trusted Perth Pest Management expert to defend and protect your home.
Signs You Have A Termite Problem
Perth’s climate is a hotspot for termite colonies. They thrive in warm, moist conditions, and often live and move underground, meaning you may have thousands of termites in your home or garden and not know it. If you do suspect you have a termite infestation, these are some of the common signs:
Gentle knocking, tapping or clicking sounds in your walls or ceiling
Visible traces of them – flying termites (eek), discarded termite wings, mud trails, termite droppings (small black marks and powder)
Hollow sounding timber – termites will usually eat their way through wood from the inside out
Electrical issues – they can chomp their way through power cables!
Small holes in flooring and walls
Visible damage to structure of home and/or furniture
Important note: If you have seen live termites at your Perth property, do not disturb them as it makes treating them more difficult. Get in touch with our office immediately. At Pesti Pest Control, our technicians have years of training and experience in both exterminating termites and preventing their return.
How We Defend Your Home From Termites
If you suspect you might have a termite problem, call us and a member of our expert team will come out to your property to conduct a thorough inspection.
If there are visible signs of termites, we can offer a spot treatment on the day with a spray and provide further advice on follow-up treatments to eliminate your termites, for good.
Our Perth Termite Treatments
Chemical treatments are highly effective in getting rid of termites. We use Termiticides in different applications and methods and create a custom treatment plan for your property. In most cases, this is used on new homes, as well as treating the soil surrounding new and established homes.
Baiting monitoring system
Another option to deter termites is strategically placed bait stations. Often used above-ground, these bait stations attract termites with food such as dry wood or paper refuse. About 30 bait stations are needed for a typical house, which need to be inspected regularly to assess any termite activity. We offer a $1,000,000 Termite Warranty for every treatment using FMC products!
The Pesti Pest Control team recommend annual Perth termite inspections to make sure termites haven’t got into other areas of your home or yard that haven’t been chemically treated. This will also give you peace of mind, year-after-year.
Pre-Purchase Home Inspections
When you purchase a home, all insurance policies will require you to undertake a pre-purchase assessment and keep up with regular annual termite inspections to protect your investment.
Before you buy your home, Pesti Pest Control Perth can come out to inspect your house in accordance to the Australian standards AS 4349.3 – 2010 to ensure there are no timber pest issues. By conducting this timber pest inspection, you can have complete insight on the house you’re investing in and keep your insurance companies happy!
