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.
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.
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.
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.
“Last year I had Hitman come to my home in Ipswich. I own many rental homes in and around Brisbane and was looking for a company that did both termite prevention and termite control in Caboolture, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane. It was important that I found termite control specialists that could help me with preventing termite infestation and then actually doing termite control in the Brisbane home. The woman I spoke to at Hitman was wonderful. She gave me many practical tips on termite prevention and explained their methods of termite control. She told me that they had franchisees in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich and Caboolture and they would do a free termite check on every home that had a pest treatment. Of course, this suited me perfectly. The termite specialist Brisbane was extremely knowledgeable and did a great job for us. We will always use Hitman for pest and termite treatments.” –LG, Ipswich
