What do I do if I find termites?
Please DO NOT SPRAY WITH FLYSPRAY. For some reason, almost all of our callers who have found termites instinctively spray with fly spray. Unfortunately this is the worst thing you can possibly do because as termites are very shy creatures they will automatically retreat when they see light. If they are sprayed, they can retreat and hide making it almost impossible to work out the species of termite and how to treat them. In most cases they will pop up somewhere else in the house and you may be unaware that are continuing to eat your home. Whenever you see evidence of termites, it is always best to get a professional in to conduct a comprehensive termite inspection.
