Termites form an important part of our environment. Their main role is to consume timber and turn it into nutrients for other plants and animals. There are over 360 species of termites in Australia with approximately four subterranean(ground dwelling)species considered an economic pest in the South-West of WA. Due to construction methods and materials most WA homes are at risk. CSIRO studies show that one in four homes is subject to termite attack.
At Southcape Pest Management we care about the safe and responsible use of pesticides. When a product appears on the market that not only eliminates termites but has little or no effect on the surronding eco system then we want to use it. We are able to offer our clients the choice of two proven methods for termite control which are non-toxic to both the technician applying them and also your family,pets and the environment. The first is Exterra Non-Toxic Interception and Baiting System and the second Altriset which is a truly revolutionary chemical which is the first to be classified a non scheduled poison. Not just any pest control company has the right to use these products. Southcape Pest Management has met the requirements to become accredited to use both Exterra and Altriset. This means that we are willing to undertake on-going professional development to give you the client the best service possible.
