Micropest Pest Control Sydney

Termites Arcadia. It’s November, just about summer and the termites are already here in Arcadia. Micropest pest control has done 3 termite control treatments in Arcadia this month.



With two years of very wet weather and the promise by weather forecasters for a hot, wet summer, can only mean one thing, the termites are going to go berserk this year.

Micropest pest control is based in Wahroonga, but we are only 30 min drive from Arcadia. And I must admit I do enjoy driving along the Galston Gorge and getting out of the city for the day for some peace.

I have noticed all the fruit trees are blossoming right now and we have had a few warm days, but it is still too early for the amount of termite control treatments we are carrying out in Arcadia. It is essential this year more than most years to make sure that you get your termite inspections carried out, especially if you haven’t had one in the last couple of years. Even if you carry out of termite inspection yourself, it is better to be proactive.

The house we are working on at present in Arcadia has termites in a granny flat attached to the main house. The reason for the termites in a granny flat is because the drainage is no good. There are no gutters on the roof and is when it rains the granny flat floods. Moisture is the number one causative factor for termites. The owners of the house found the termites when they were renovating the granny flat. They can be very discreet.

When you live in country areas like Arcadia that have many mature gum trees, the chances of getting termites are extremely high. I will always strongly recommend a termite control treatment every 10 years and termite inspection every year. Make sure your drainage is working, and there are no leaking pipes or showers. Very important to remove any wood around and under the house.
