|Internet Specials for new customers|
|WELCOME... to our solution to your pest control problem|
Be careful in selecting a pest controller: it's far too easy to get a pest control licence in Queensland and start up a pest control business employing mainly trainees with inadequate knowledge or experience in professional pest control matters - more details.
|Termites attack 1 in 3 homes in the Townsville region|
|Termites are a major worry: Recent industry surveys suggest that about 1 in 3 homes in the Townsville region will suffer a termite infestation. To make matters worse your home insurance policy will NOT cover the damage which may involve costly replacement of structural timbers in the building.
Most homes in the Townsville region are at significant risk of termite attack, especially where eucalypt gum trees are close by - within a 100 meter radius of the building.
Your best protection is to arrange for a Termite Inspection and Report to Australian Standard 3660, including written specifications for a complete Termidor soil barrier treatment, where practicable, to protect your home. Prevention is better than cure.
Where live Termite activity is found POD's will install especially designed termite bait stations containing the Nemesis brand termite bait. We closely monitor at 2 to 3 weekly intervals the stations to assess bait consumption and replenish bait therein.
Nemesis termite bait contains an IGR insect growth regulator that prevents the worker termite from regrowing it's external skeleton after moulting. Worker termites ingesting the bait will feed partly digested timber and the bait to other termites in the central nest. Termites cannablise other dead termites thereby hastening elimination of the entire colony ... more details.
|We use the safest, most effective products|
|Safety first: Recently a new range of
pest control products have entered the marketplace, including hi-tech
baits for the control of termites, cockroaches and ants. Although much
safer to use in and around the home these products require a far higher
level of skill to ensure an effective result.
Beware: The older style more toxic pesticides (solvent based) are commonly used by the dodgy "cut-price" operators. Refer to the Consumer Advice section of this website for consumer protection advice on selecting a professional pest control service.
|Why it's important to know about termites|
|WARNING: Termite damage
to a building or other timber structures can be severe and your home
insurance does NOT cover the repair costs. Termites are known to destroy
roofing and wall framing timbers within a few months in the
