Inspect and control timber pests

The methods for controlling timber pests, such as termites, are not the same as the methods for eradicating rodents, cockroaches or other types of pests. In most cases, the damage and threat caused by timber pests are larger than those of other pests, hence, a completely different approach is needed to deal with termites.

To effectively get rid of timber pests, a technician should be equipped with the proper training to handle the required tasks for managing termites, including trainings on the proper installation of protective barriers to prevent termites from invading your property.
