Termite Inspections Rutherford

Annual termite inspections are a must for all homeowners, as termites can cause significant damage in as little as 6 months. Termite inspection are like a “health check” for your home and our inspectors will look for areas of termite activity, termite damage, building faults and conducive conditions around the property that may make a termite attack more likely. Most importantly it will also provide recommendations to address these issues promptly and efficiently. Our experienced termite inspectors will take their time to carry out a comprehensive termite inspection.

Termite Treatments Rutherford

Annual termite inspections will provide you with the termite status of your property, but in order to prevent a termite attack, it is necessary to have a termite treatment to install a termite management system. There are two types of preventative termite treatments; chemical treatments to the soil around the building (and underneath if you have a sub-floor) or termite baiting systems (which include installing bait stations in the ground around the building). Homeowners should consider the investment in a termite management system as part of their home insurance plan, as termite damage is not covered in a standard buildings insurance policy.

Rutherford – Key Pests

Rutherford can have warm to hot summers, sometimes dry and sometimes wet. Winter are a lot cooler, but dryer. From a pest point of view this means Spring to Autumn is the main pest season, along rodents become a problem in winter when they come inside for warmth and shelter.

Spring is the start of the spider season and you can expect a big spider season after a wet winter, as there will be lots of insects around (food for the spiders!). Flies, cockroaches and ants build up with increasing temperatures and in the areas near the creeks and lakes, mosquitoes can be a problem in summer.

Termites tend to be more active in the warmer months, especially if it’s wet and humid. Although they are less active in winter, they will continue eating through your home! In the Hunter Valley, the main termite species are Coptotermes and Nasutitermes. They can form colonies of over 1 million individuals and are capable of causing significant damage in a matter of months.
