A homeowner’s worst nightmare comes to life when they accidentally stick their hand through a windowsill or doorframe and find live termites. Not knowing what to do, they panic and often spray the termites with fly spray, bug spray or other household cleaning products. However most homeowners don’t realise that this is the complete opposite of what they should be doing.
Although it may seem hard to just walk away, this is exactly what Sandgate Pest Control recommends. If an owner continues to disturb the area, they will disturb the termites causing them to flee and this makes a professional treatment and identification harder.
Call Sandgate Pest Control immediately, they will be able to send a technician who can treat the termites appropriately and also give advice on what should be done. If you have already disturbed the termites, your next step should be to have a full timber pest inspection completed at your home to ensure that termites aren’t nesting in other locations within the property.
Sandgate Pest Control is experienced in all termite matters and can assist you by inspecting, treating and protecting your home. Their website www.sandgatepest.com.au has more information on termites and they can also be contacted on (07) 3269 6198.
