Many of the new enquiries that Maximum Pest receives, usually have an existing Pest Control contract. Many of these enquiries are recommendations from our existing clients, neighbours of our clients or have seen our reviews and want to engage a more professional and expert service provider.
The first thing that we do for any enquiry is to conduct a site visit. We do this to understand the scope of work, assess the pest infestation and be 100% sure that we can solve your pest problem. Afterall, that is why you are calling us right?
Termites, though tiny are a huge problem. They cause trillions of dollars in damage each year. Once termites find a way into your property, they will not stop till they consume all cellulose within your premises. These tiny pests are extremely organised and systematic in their approach to get their food source.
Just like any organism, termites do everything in their ability to survive. Each time a nest is threatened with extinction, the queen will go into survival mode. To sustain their species, the Queen termite will produce winged reproductives, also known as alates or swarmers. Home-owners will usually find them flying around a light source after a heavy downpour. These winged reproductives have one purpose, it is to find a suitable environment to start a new nest or colony. One male and female will tunnel into the soil, close to a food source to establish their very own colony.
As time goes on, this new colony will grow larger and much more established. A mature nest can consist of millions of termites. A single mature nest can also have multiple kings and queens. A threat to a nest can come in numerous ways.
