General

Not at all. The amount of active ingredient we apply to the treatment is very small. For peace of mind, we recommend you keep your pets out of the way while the spray is being applied.

Termite removal

Pick up the phone and call us! And in the meantime, leave them alone. Often if you interfere with them, spray them with fly spray, or try to kill them in other ways, you’ll move them to another area of your property. Don’t disturb them and you’ll be better off for it.

Nope! Termites will attack and eat anything that contains cellulose. Even homes that are still under construction can be susceptible to termites. Unlike a good vintage wine, age doesn’t matter.

There’s actually no difference. Termites are sometimes incorrectly referred to as ‘white ants’, simply because of their colour, but in fact they’re not ants at all.

Inpsections

This will depend on the size and structure of your property, but on average, our termite inspections take about 1 hour. Have a look at our inspections page for more details.
