Having a general pest treatment once a year is the best way to keep homes free from unwanted pests. That’s not the case for termites, though – termites can easily gain access to a property without being seen. Having an annual termite inspection by one of our experienced termite inspectors is the best way to ensure your home is free from termites.
To save costs, a general pest treatment can be carried out at the same time as the annual termite inspection.
Although termites prefer humid, moist conditions, they still thrive in areas with moderate rainfall, such as Lockwood. Having a regular termite inspection, at least once a year, is the only way to be sure that termites are not quietly chomping their way through structural timbers!
When our professional termite inspectors visit a property, they are looking for evidence of termites being present. They also highlight any potential termite access points and give clear advice on how to minimise the potential for termites gaining entry to the home. This might be as simple as moving a pile of firewood away further from the house or sealing a gap in pipework.
Having a termite treatment is the best way to safeguard against termites. This usually means applying termiticide to the soil around the property or installing termite baits. The best treatment will depend on the home construction, soil type and environmental conditions.
A termite protection system can be installed during new builds or at the same time that renovations are carried out. Our team at Go Pest are always happy to discuss the options that are available.
Although termites present the biggest risk to homeowners, several other pests can be a problem.
Spiders are probably the most unpopular visitor for homeowners. During the warmer months, and particularly after a prolonged wet or dry spell, spiders will can find their way indoors seeking moisture or shelter. Having a general pest spray once a year is an easy and relatively low cost way to keep homes free from spiders.
Aggressive European wasps are a problem in some areas, particularly after a mild winter, as wasp nests can continue to grow year on year. A wasp nest should always be dealt with by a professional due to their ability to attack and repeatedly sting. Our team at Go Pest are highly experienced at wasp nest removal, and can deal with wasp (and bee) problems swiftly and safely.
As those living on rural properties know, rodents can be very challenging to manage, especially in the autumn as rodents seek shelter in warm spaces, such as outbuildings. Go Pest offer a number of rodent control solutions that are tailored to each specific situation. We know how to eliminate rodents and keep them out of buildings for good.
Together with Lockwood South, Lockwood covers an area of about 40 square kilometres within the area of Greater Bendigo. It is a small rural location that has a long agricultural history and has long been visited by travellers looking to avoid travelling through Bendigo. The Uniting Church (pictured above) is a well known landmark in Lockwood South, built by European settlers.
The Jaara Jaara people are the traditional custodians of the land. The district was first settled by Europeans around 1840, with shepherd Jack Kennedy establishing the first Happy Jacks Hotel in Lockwood South, which operated until 1916. Despite having a small population of around 2700 people, there has at one stage been as many as nine hotels in the area, serving locals and passing travellers.
Its inland location means Lockwood escapes the cooler weather that plagues the south coast, with hot summers and moderately cool winters.
