On the road with Kiki – Episode 51
Welcome back for our latest episode of Out the Road with Kiki. In this series, we follow pest consultant Kristian as he visits homes and businesses across Adelaide that are experiencing pest outbreaks. Today, we have pesky termites on the agenda!
The first client of the day has noticed some active termites in their doorframe, and they’ve even managed to dig out a hole in the wall. As they are small in size, the client mistakes them for nesting termite offspring, but when Kristian takes a look, it’s definitely fully grown active adult termites. He finds that they’re also active in the garage, and recommends treating the problem with a termite baiting system attached directly to the affected wall. As the house is semi-detached, Kristian offers both the client and his neighbour a quote for a combined baiting system package deal to ensure that they are both protected from termites in the long term.
The next client wants a quote for a Sentricon Always Active termite barrier system, which is Allstate’s preferred choice for comprehensive termite protection. While they already have a termite barrier system installed by a competitor, Kristian notes that the stations seem to be located further away from the house compared to Allstate’s preferred approach. This means positioning each station no more than 300mm away from the house, 3m apart to better protect the house. He leaves the client with 2 options: the first is to have the existing stations reactivated with Sentricon as they are, or to reinstall new stations following Allstate’s method.
Finally, it’s time for the last job of the day! The client bought their home about 3-4 months ago, and is looking to safeguard it from termites. They had a termite assessment completed as part of a pre-purchase inspection, which did not show any problems, and Kristian confirms today that they are still termite-free. He measures up and leaves the client a quote for a preventative termite baiting system. And that’s a wrap for another week!
