Free Termite Check
Hitman includes a free annual termite check as a part of Our Complete Package. We do this because it’s imperative that you have your home checked at least once every 12 months. Termites cause a lot of damage in a short period of time.
Although pests can be extremely irritating termites are deadly to your home. About 18 years ago we decided to include this free check as part of our annual pest service and is a big reason for why our clients use us every year.
The technicians will thoroughly check your home for live termites and termite damage which is evidence of past activity. They will also advise you on how to make your home less attractive to termites so that the chances of a termite infestation are minimised. All Termite work and checks are done by Hitman Termites Pty Ltd (BSA 1129193) or a BSA licenced Hitman pest technician.
A lot of people believe it’s all about the type of chemical used or the type of monitor. At Hitman we’re all about the expertise. Anyone can put down chemicals or place monitors but what you’re paying for is our understanding of termite activity, our knowledge of how the treatments work and the ability to manage the prevention of termites in your home over the long haul. We offer conitnuous management of your property rather than a one-off bandaid approach
20 years ago we did mainly termite barriers which are now called treated zones. We moved away from these 15 years ago because
1. We don’t believe in saturating your home in chemicals;
2. The effectiveness is hit and miss as the zone can be disrupted as easily as a dog digging in the garden;
3. It is a very intrusive method of treatment.
Termite Monitoring Programme
We now use a monitoring program that we have improved continuously over the past 18 years. The Hitman approach of inspecting your home anywhere between 5 and 10 times in the first year ensures the absolute success of the program. This approach is unheard of in our industry and yet we have been doing this for 15 years. After the first 12 months you have the option to continue the Hitman’s ongoing management of your home at an affordable cost.
It is impossible to eradicate termites . It’s a matter of effective management and that only comes with constant monitoring. All Termite work and checks are done by Hitman Termites Pty Ltd (BSA 1129193) or a BSA licenced Hitman pest technician.
