Ask RiotACT: Termite inspection services

Ask RiotACT

Hello Rioters

I read a couple of old (2008, 2010) posts on termites, where several commenters stressed the importance of getting a termite expert to inspect (as opposed to cowboy operators 😉 ).

Can anyone provide me with a recommendation for a service they’ve used in the last year or two? We use Canberra Pest Control on a semi-regular basis for spider control, but given the damage termites can do, I want to be sure I get this right. The only sign of a problem we have is a small amount of very fine wood dust collecting at the bottom of a doorframe.

Apologies if this is a “where to buy a cup of coffee” post, but I’ve done my due diligence with Google and the yellow pages and am none the wiser.

We use Shane from Mann’s Pest Control. He helped us get rid of a couple of termite nests in some gum trees in front of our house as well as in our old wooden sleeper garden beds. He inspects for any evidence of termites any time he comes back to do a pest spray. Haven’t had termites in 6 years now. Very lovely man too.
