Lee from Richards Pest control provided me with great communication via email including very informative quote, satisfactory answers to my questions asked as well as courtesy reminder via email and SMS. Hayden from Richards Pest control is a nice and hardworking gentleman who delivered fabulous pest control service in our house, including general pest treatment, termite inspection and rodent inspection and baiting. Hayden went into detail and answered all questions I asked and advised me of the issues he identified inside and outside of our house which can potentially attract termites and other pests and his proposed solution to fix up those issues. Moreover, Hayden helped us solved the mystery in our garage, which turned out to be Gecko poop rather than rodent droppings. Overall speaking, great service from Richards Pest control, punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient professionals. I highly recommend this pest control company.

Brett arrived on time. He is courteous, well spoken and to explain any questions I had and checked out any troublesome areas I mentioned. Nothing was a problem to him. I find it very reassuring to know that there is a twelve month warranty on the work and that I can make contact if I'm concerned about anything. Thankyou for making the whole process easy.

Lee and Team are so thorough and ultra professional in everything they do. Their after care service was second to none - took 30 minutes out of their day to explain termite barrier treatment options and cost to us. Reviewed another company’s work and responded with a comprehensive email after work hours to give us confidence with house purchase. Would definitely recommend! Would recommend

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.
