Did you know that termites can devalue your property by more than 25%? Termites can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building and go for years undetected without a monitoring and inspection regime. They can significantly devalue your property and cause large costs in repairs to any building containing timber.
At Rentokil, our termite treatment plans are tailored specifically for your particular needs. Spotting termites is difficult to the untrained eye, until the damage is considerable and expensive. Our timber pest specialists are highly qualified, experienced and trained in identifying evidence of termite activity and provide recommendations and treatment options to reduce the risk of termite attack as well as ventilation, dampness, wood decay and fungi issues that create termite conducive environments.
A comprehensive annual termite inspection by Rentokil is the best protection against termites by providing early detection of termite activity, saving you from serious damages on your property.
Our Rentokil Termite Monitoring Solution (TMS) is specially designed to provide a holistic approach to minimise the risk of termite infestation in your property. Termite monitoring involves the use of effective termite monitoring stations, which are placed around your property to detect termite activity. Our termite expert will routinely monitor these stations for activity. Adopting a proactive measure, this solution monitors your property for any termite activity before it becomes a problem, ensuring you the peace of mind you deserve.
Designed to scientifically eliminate subterranean termite colonies, termite baiting stations exploit termite biology and behaviour. Worker termites take and transfer the bait throughout the nest, eliminating termites at the source. Unobtrusive above-ground and in-ground bait stations provide continual protection without causing damage to your property.
Termite chemical barrier treatment involves liquid chemicals applied to the soil beneath flooring and/or around the perimeter of your property’s foundation. A long-lasting chemical barrier in the soil reduces the risk of concealed termites entering into the structure and pushes them out into the open so that a fully trained, qualified and competent timber pest inspector can detect them before they enter your property.
All Rentokil technicians are highly qualified and trained to industry standards. Rentokil Hong Kong fulfills the global standards and was awarded the ISO Certifications by BSI - ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001. Our local teams offer a wide range of global innovations and termite control solutions for the most effective outcome.
Your termite control costs will ultimately reflect the time and effort it will take to manage them in your home or business. The first step in determining the cost of termite control is fully understanding the problem. How serious is a termite problem? What attracts termites to a house? Is it bad to live in a house with termites?
To answer all the above questions, Rentokil will need to visit your property to inspect for termites. Following this, the below factors will determine the most suitable termite treatment and its associated costs.
The three types of termite are subterranean (reside in the ground), drywood (nest inside the wood they’re infesting) and dampwood (infest damp and often decaying timber). They have very different habitat requirements and will infest properties in unique ways. Treatment will vary depending on which termite species is identified.
The square footage of your property and premises will have a direct impact on the type of termite treatment used and the number of follow-up treatments required.
The location of the termites, be inside or outside your property, will affect the type of termite management treatment. A combination of treatments may be selected to target all lines of defense.
Sometimes termite management requires multiple treatments for successful control. This can be reflected with the pricing of the termite control service.
If many termites are present, or they are largely established within your property, you may require more extensive treatment. Our treatment may also recommend other solutions such as engaging a plumber to reduce or rectify a drainage problem, or the installation of vents or the removal of scrap timbers found in a subfloor. All this forms part of our termite management solution.
