For homeowners in Echuca, a pest treatment once a year is generally all that’s required to keep homes pest free.

Homeowners in Echuca always need to be aware of the termite threat – a termite attack is many times more likely than suffering from a fire of flood… and termite damage is not covered by your home insurance!
The minimum action homeowners should take is to have a professional termite inspection once a year. This will let you know if there are termites attacking your home, on your property and whether there are any conditions around your home that could make a termite attack more likely. You can then take the appropriate actions.
However, with Coptotermes termites being the key termite species in Echuca, which can cause significant damage in less than a year, we always recommend having a termite treatment and installing a termite protection system around your home.
If you are building a home or carrying out renovations you need to consider incorporating termite protection during the build. Indeed building regulations require it! Please give as a call at the planning stage.
Termites and spiders are the key concerns for homeowners in Echuca – Termite can damage the home and spider can harm your family and pets. The annual “spider spray” is a common service for many of our customers.

Echuca means “meeting of the waters” and is located near the junction of the Goulburn, Campaspe and Murray Rivers and is the traditional lands of the Yorta Yorta nation.
Modern day Echuca was found in 1850 when Henry Hopwood starting ferrying people and goods across the Murray River. Although by the 1870s Echuca had become Australia’s largest inland port, with the arrival of rail transport, it had already started to decline as early as the 1890s.
Although agriculture is very important to the region, the main industry in Echuca is tourism.
The warm summer months can lead to significant pest outbreaks, especially if there have been winter and spring rains. However, although the colder winter months kill off many of the pests, it does drive rodents indoors giving rise to problems with rats and mice.
