Skilled and experienced Pest Control technicians
Termites are regarded as one of the most destructive pests to have in your home or business. Sometimes referred to as ‘white ants’, termites can cause substantial damage to the structure of a building if they are not managed or controlled by qualified pest professionals.
Termites thrive in an environment that is dark, humid and protected, which is what makes them so hard to find, until it’s too late. Since termites are a species of wood-boring insect, they attack any wood in your property, which weakens the structure of your home.
Termites do - however- leave signs indicating their presence and often it’s the termite damage that is seen, rather than the actual termites themselves.
