If you find Termites DO NOT disturb them!!

If you find termites in or around your property, it is essential that you DO NOT disturb them. People often react by removing damaged timber or spraying exposed termites with household insecticides. This drives termites away from where they were discovered and makes eradication much more difficult. If you do find an infestation it is ideal that you leave the infested area alone and contact Reliance Pest Management immediately for an inspection of your property and advice on the best protective measures available.
