3. Termite Check – Protection of Assets
Termites are nasty creatures that can cause significant damage to your home in a very short amount of time. Although paying for yearly inspections may seem costly and not worth it, it’s an investment that will save you money in the long run. Termites can go unnoticed in your home for some time before they work their way out of the internal structure and create visible damage. At this point the cost to repair the damage has skyrocketed. Most people don’t know the signs or how to properly inspect for termites. That’s where a professional pest control company who has the knowledge, training and experience comes into play. They’ll identify the type of termite affecting your home and the best treatment for them in a way that is guaranteed to achieve results. It’s important to have your home inspected for termites at least once a year to find if termites are affecting your home.

4. Rodents not Chewing on Electrical Cables
Rodents chewing on electrical cables is more dangerous than you realise. Why? Because they can be a fire hazard to your home! Sure, plastic insulation coats the metal wiring, but a rodent makes short work of it, leaving nothing behind except for hot and exposed metal. From there a wire can short circuit and cause a spark or heat up and ignite nearby insulation or the wooden support structure of your home. It is important to have regular pest inspections to identify any issues you may have in your home.
