I would like to touch on unsatisfactory service regarding the maintenance and upkeep on termite stations in body corp & strata complexes on the Gold Coast, Tweed Heads & Northern Rivers.
If you are a building or site manager & have a Professional pest business maintaining termite inspections, pest control or termite monitoring with EXTERRA, NEMESIS or SENTRICON i would like to focus on every site we have attended and submitted a free proposal 90% of sites are not up to ZONE PEST standards inspecting and maintaining the site and termite stations.
Why is the service and maintenance not up to standard? In our professional opinion it is either a cheap proposal trying to outbid the other company to win the contract thinking they can onsell other services from their professional pest company not allocating time and materials for a 12 month period maintaining a site correctly or having a "Technician" employed by a franchise or large firm carry out the contract and not the person actually quoting the site and doing the works.
A pest company must come to site and service the stations between the manufactures guidelines and service correctly to get full quality of service making the product work to its maximum, this includes replacing timbers when required and bait live termite activity when found with a 3 weekly inspect and monitor program until colony has been eliminated.
All this takes time and is a unforeseen cost, however if the quotation and proposal has been done correctly the serving costs have been allocated to the site and thus the service to you and the site is visually outstanding with reassurance any termites both on site and any concealed entry is greatly reduced just by seeing the service you should be paying for.
All we recommend is to change your mindset and have a 12 month program with Zone Pest so that you can see what we offer.

Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspections Tweed Coast, Northern Rivers and Gold Coast for Auctions or purchasing of properties.
There are a variety of charges by Building and Pest Inspectors and even a single person or to specialists and guidelines as to what type of inspector or inspection you are contracting to the recommended Professional by the Solicitor,Real Estate or Conveyancer.
Zone Pest Will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours on any property using all the equipment which assists in finding concealed termite and water damages, Thermal Camera and Termatrac are at no extra cost.
The Minority of our purchasers which have called that spend a small amount or as minimal as possible in costs will unfortunately end up with more concealed concerns.
Zone Pest have been surprised on how many people ask what we are doing on site which most have not seen the detail and non rushed methods which are used when spending a small amount more on the inspection.
We conduct our Inspections by myself the specialist in Pests and are fully insured and licensed Termite and Pest Experts and trusted and selected Builders which will have a vast knowledge of building and repairs will work together and Inspect the property using the latest equipment and spend the time to inspect to a above standard and have a discussion on any concealed areas of concern after the Inspection has been complete.
Zone Pest can also recommend and treat any termite activity found on the day of the inspection as we are fully licenced to carry out this work as some claimed building and pest inspectors are not licenced and thus making me assume the field work and knowledge of types of species of termites and what their behaviour and feeding does on a site.
If you are reading this blog and are a solicitor or conveyancer or Real Estate agent i would recommend to have thought into the future reference as to what type of inspector you wish to recommend as this workmanship will reflect negatively on all in question to the purchasers in the future.
If you Wish to have our Inspections carried out on any site we welcome your call and would be happy to carry out our inspections for you in the future.
