FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here Are Some Of Our Most
How Often Should I Have My House Inspected For Termites?
Australian Standards recommends a termite inspection to homes and buildings at least annually. High risk homes (that have had a past termite issue or those near bushland or affected gardens/landscaping) may require a termite inspection more regularly. The purpose of a termite inspection is not only to determine if your property has termites, but also identify risks or areas that are conducive to termite attack. Most homeowners are unaware they have 3 or 5 areas around the home that will attract termites. So regular termite inspections are essential in lieu of a termite barrier.
What Are The Common Signs Of A Termite Infestation?
Because so much of the damage caused by termites is within the inner walls of a structure, it can be difficult to know if you have a termite problem. However, there are three warning signs to help you determine if you have a termite problem.

Can I Control Termites Or Pests Myself?
Off the shelf pest control products will not successfully remove a pest or termite infestation. They may help temporarily, but for long lasting protection, peace of mind and the benefits of a warranty and guarantee, let the expert technicians at Bug Call handle this problem for you.
Do Your Pest Control Sprays Have Any Odour?
No, our pest control products we use do not have odours, unlike in earlier times when organochlorine chemicals were used. Today we use no odour non repellent chemicals. These chemicals are undetectable to pests, so they naturally travel across treated surfaces and become affected as normal. Smelling products usually are poor quality and are repellent products used for fast knockdown only therefore will not provide a long-lasting residual.
Are Pest Control Sprays Safe Around My Children And Pets?
Yes, all our products we use during pest control treatments are considered safe if applied by our professionals. Our pest control products sometimes contain the active ingredient also used in dog flee & tick tablets. When our products are applied in a fine mist, we will always advise you to keep pets off the treated surfaces for a minimum of 2 hours. Safety for you and your pets and our staff is #1 priority.
How Long Does A Pest Control Treatment Last?
Pest control treatments last for 6-12 months if done correctly using the good quality non-repellent products. Remember pest control is not an invisible force shield around your home there are times when you will see a pest but as soon as pests travel through or into our treated zones they will die off before an infestation starts. Pest control these days is now pest management, managing pests the safest and most effective way using products that pose minimal or no risk to homeowners or pets.
How Much Does It Cost To Get Rid Of Pests Or Termites?
Our general Pest Control Service is $198, and a Termite Barrier treatment will range from $1500 - $5000. A better question might be, how much does it cost to ignore a pest or termite problem? Pests can destroy your ability to enjoy your property and termites can cause thousands of dollars of damage - all without being covered by Home or Contents Insurance.
