Our key pest control services in Belmont
Having a general pest treatment once a year is an easy and cost-effective way to protect your home and family from common pests such as cockroaches, ants and spiders. But while an annual “spider spray” is effective at keeping most pests away, termites are a different story. The threat level from termites is high in Belmont, which means an annual termite inspection is essential. Having a termite protection system in place is also highly recommended.
Termite Inspections Belmont
Termites are active in all states of Australia, which is why all homeowners are advised to have a professional termite inspection once a year. Termites are experts at concealing their presence, so a professional eye is required to tell if termites are present or not. Once they’ve gained access to a property – usually out of sight, sometimes via the subfloor – they can cause extensive damage in as little as six months.
During a professional termite inspection, we will closely examine the property looking for indications that termites might be present. We will also assess the home as a whole, looking for faults or conditions that might make it easy for termites to access the property. The full written report will document our findings and will also give clear recommendations about how to make the property more secure against termite entry. For example, the report may recommend fixing a leaky exterior tap (which provides an easy water source for termites) or to relocate a pile of firewood.
Termite Treatments Belmont
The best way to keep termites from entering a home is to install a termite protection system around and under the property. A few different kinds of systems are available; the one that’s right for you will depend on the age of your home, the style of construction and the location. Usually it comes down to either a soil treatment (where termiticide is applied to the soil around the property) or a baiting system (where termiticide rods are placed at regular intervals around the property).
Properties on the lakeside, especially those which are prone to flooding, would be best with an in-ground baiting system as they are extremely durable even in flood conditions.
Belmont – Key Pests
With its sub-tropical climate, the warm weather and good amount of rain makes Belmont a perfect location for pests. Ants, cockroaches and spiders are never far away!
Belmont’s lakeside position means mosquitoes also cause plenty of irritation in the warmer months. European wasps likewise make outdoor areas challenging at times, being both a nuisance and a health risk due to their aggressive behaviour.
Although they are the hardest pest to spot, termites should always be considered the number one pest to safeguard against due to the risk they pose to people’s homes.
