Pre-construction termite proofing is the strategic use of shields or membranes, termite baiting, and reticulating systems to keep a new building safe from termites. Pre-construction termite barriers are far superior to chemical termite baiting only as they prevent termites from establishing a colony in your home. By preventing an infestation you can avoid the extreme structural damage that termites are capable of causing in a short time, as well as the high costs of fighting a termite infestation and repairing the building.

Most of our pre-construction termite barriers last up to 25-50 years or the design life of the building, meaning your home or property will get as close to lifelong protection as possible. The exact duration of your pre-construction termite barrier will vary depending on which systems you choose to employ and how the ground and surrounding environment develops over the years. One thing is for sure, you can’t give a better chance to your development to remain termite-free than by investing in a pre-construction termite barrier.

Termite-proofing a new construction is done through a combination of chemical soil barriers, physical barriers, and termite reticulation systems. Chemical barriers kill foraging termites. A physical pre-construction termite barrier like the Homeguard Termite Management System stops termites from entering your house undetected, and a reticulation system is a set of underground piping designed to provide ongoing protection against termites. The exact methods used to termite-proof your build will vary depending on the site, the likelihood of a nearby termite colony, and the budget you have available. Get in touch for more details!

The exact cost will depend on the type and extent of the infestation or pest problem you face. However, we pride ourselves on delivering highly effective and affordable pest control services, so whatever your needs, we can meet them at an excellent price.

While dealing with some types of minor infestations with a DIY approach is possible, we don’t recommend it. If you want to make sure that your home or business is free of pests, call Affordable Pest Control now.

It depends on the type of treatment. Termite treatments can be effective for up to 5 years, and other kinds of infestations may require only one or two treatments or may need to be repeated on a more regular basis. For specific details, please call or email us.

After treatment, it is advisable to wait for 5-7 days before cleaning your house, if possible. We will always advise you of any waiting time before applying treatment, so you know exactly what to do.

Yes. Nobody wants their space to be inhabited by unhygienic pests. The effort required to tackle even the smallest problem alone — especially without professional equipment — is time-consuming, complex and often untenable.

At Affordable Pest Control Nowra, we’ll ensure that your home or business is protected from unwanted pests. Our expert exterminators will work to free up your precious time and deliver a high-quality service so you can rest easy knowing your property is in good hands.

That will depend on your current pest issue and the treatment your premises receive. When we discuss your options with you, we’ll go through the entire process and let you know how long you should wait before ordering another pest control service.

Unless it’s an emergency, it’s best to plan pest control services well ahead of time. Because pests become more active in warmer temperatures, it’s best to schedule pest control in Spring, when most start to lay eggs and resurface.

In colder weather, it’s harder to reach them, as they’re usually hibernating. To avoid reactionary tactics, call us to discuss the best approach for your premises.

To prepare for pest control adequately, you should cover open items and move furniture to give exterminators easy access to harder-to-reach areas. Most importantly, make sure you have proper plans to relocate you and your family — including any pets — for the day.

You shouldn’t have to wait too long — sometimes just a couple of hours. To get an accurate idea of how long you should wait, speak to us, and we’ll give you an accurate figure for your specific service.

There are a few things you should discuss with us before your service:

  • When should I receive pest control?
  • How can I bestprepare my home or business premises?
  • How long will it take?
  • How long until I can come back?
