Do you need a termite inspection?


Termites also known as white ants are small and a similar in size to ants. Due to their size and similarities to ants this can often lead to confusion. Knowing the difference between these two pests is a good starting point for identification.

Termites are secretive in nature which makes detection difficult to an untrained eye. Hence why people are more likely to spot the signs of termite damage rather than live termites.

Correct identification ensures the most effective treatment.  Allowing home or business owners to choose appropriate prevention steps.
