ProGuard Pest Control
When it comes to Termite control, you can only trust the experts. Termites are highly organized social insects that can travel over 100m from their nest in search for food – which is your home. Although they are small, Termites are incredibly destructive and can destroy your home if left untreated.
Although finding Termites in your home can be quite distressing, rest assured that we’re experts in termite control and we will have the right solution for your home.
WHAT INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF A TERMITE INFESTATION:
Trees or stumps close to your home
Leaking taps or water run off pipes
Use of timber in landscaping (retaining walls, garden edging etc)
Stacked firewood or scrap timber
Some construction types which conceal Termite entry points
SIGNS OF ACTIVE TERMITES:
Visibly damaged timber inside or outside your home
Bubbling paintwork on your walls
Damage to timber cabinetry
Mud tubes (leads) around the edge of your slab or on piers.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I FIND TERMITES:
Do not disturb them in any way!
Do not attempt to control them yourself using general household insecticides!
Do not begin repairing damage or replacing timber!

OUR TERMITE CONTROL PROCESS
All of our treatments are as per the Australian Standard – we are also bound by the label of each termiticide we use.
Firstly we will conduct a thorough Visual Timber Pest Inspection and compile a detailed report and a Termite management proposal for you. Every home is different so the proposal will change as per the level of infestation and construction type.
We will then eliminate all live Termites from your home by completing a ‘Stage 1’ treatment. This is completed by using specialised formulations of foam and dust in the points of activity.
Finally, once there are no longer live Termites within your home, we will complete a ‘Stage 2’ treatment which involves protecting your home from future attacks.
Our technicians will work with you on a monitoring and inspection strategy moving forward.
PLEASE NOTE: Even if you don’t have live Termites, it is important to protect your home! We can advise the best solution for your home.
Regular Termite inspections are important to ensure an infestation is discovered as early as possible. Our technicians will carry out all Visual Timber Pest Inspections in accordance with AS4349.3. A timber pest inspection by ProGuard Pest Control won’t only be looking for active Termites, but also conducive conditions that may attract Termites, signs of wood decay fungi, borers and borer damage.
Upon completion of the inspection, you will be provided with a detailed report, which will include all findings and recommendations.
