Protect the second most important asset you have!! Your home…of course, your family is first.

Here at red centre pest control we pride ourselves in giving our customers a professional and friendly service together with advice based on what is right for you. Each home owner has different needs and requires an idividual approach to their pest management. One thing they all have in common though is the need to have regular termite inspections.

The building code of Australia highly recommends 6 monthly and no longer than 12 monthly inspections of properties. Here in Alice Springs we highly recommend 6 monthly inspections for high risk properties. How do i know if my home is high risk you ask?

There are some things that you can assess yourself to see if you fall into this category. These are; do you live in Alice Springs and…

  1. Is your home built on a slab?
  2. Are the walls built with a timber frame?
  3. Is your roof truss made from timber?
  4. Does any timber contact the ground and attach to the house?
  5. Has it been more than 12 months since your last inspection?
  6. Does your property have large trees or are there any nearby?
  7. Has there been any previous termite treatment done?
  8. Are there any garden beds adjacent to the home?
  9. Is there any prolonged moisture (leaks etc) around the home?
  10. Are you aware of any neighbours that have a problem?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions then unfortunately you fall into the high risk category, don’t panic.
