I had a really good experience! Lee answered all of my questions and made sure I had a good understanding of the step by steps. Not only proving a good service but also educating his customers. I can’t thank you enough. I was also away, so to see the invoice in so much detail was really good!

Termite Inspection Ormeau

Governments and building authorities recommend termite inspections at least annually, but more often in areas of high termite pressure. At Richards Pest Control we use thermal imaging cameras with all our termite inspections (at not additional cost), to make sure our termite inspectors get all the necessary information for a comprehensive termite inspection.

After the termite inspection you will receive a comprehensive, multi-page report which will detail any termite activity, areas of termite damage, building faults and conditions on the property that may make a termite attack more likely. Complete with accompanying photographs we will also provide recommendations on how to minimise the risks of a termite attack in the future.

Termite Treatment Ormeau

Richards Pest Control guarantee termite elimination for active termite infestations. Once a termite infestation has been eliminated its important to have a termite management system installed to prevent a future termite attack.

There are two types of termite management systems that provide long lasting protection for buildings: termiticide (chemical) applied to the soil around and under the building (if you have a sub-floor) or the installation of a termite baiting system in the soil around the property.

The best termite treatment for your situation largely depends on the construction of the building and soil type on the property. Even after the system is installed, annual termite inspections are required to maintain any warranties and ensure that the integrity of the system is not compromised.
