Over the years clients move from one property to another. Now that in itself is not unusual; but how would you feel if you have moved 3 times and sometime down the track you get TERMITES not once nor twice but 3 times?
This recently happened to one of our most loyal and valued customers. Their first termite infested home was in 1998, at which point we performed a safe termite treatment whilst the happy coupled stayed in their first residence with their young & first born child. Having a young & growing family gave them a strong desire to implement safe pest control with minimal risk to them & their child. The client stayed at that location for 3 years before deciding to move on to a bigger property, due to the family rapidly growing from 1 daughter to 3 daughters due to the arrival of their twin girls.
It was a another 7 years before they were to experience another termite problem. By this time it was 2009, their girls had grown up quickly as all children do, and the experience of their first termite infestation was little more than a distant memory. Nonetheless when it came time to devise the management of their latest pest problem, the need for a safe chemical treatment was prevalent. Due to ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL being selected by DU PONT to be involved in the trial work with a new termiticide called ALTRISET we were able to offer them a perfectly safe termite treatment if they were willing to be involved in ongoing trails with leading chemical producer DU PONT. Greatfully they accepted. Needless to say, we at ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL never look a gift horse in the mouth and our happy clients were delighted to receive their termite treatment at no cost whatsoever.
The success of our Altriset field testing had both Dupont & our clients smiling. With the threat of termites behind them once more the happy family could get back to their normal lives. Within 2 years of our successful pest removal, it was time once again to go house hunting due to the arrival of yet another set of twin girls! 5 girls in a 3 bedroom home was a bit small for the growing family.
Home number 3 and it's third time unlucky with yet another termite problem! People often say everything happens in threes. At least this time the termite infested area was confined to a timber retaining wall and fence line, so instead of the traditional chemical soil treatment we installed a termite baiting system to eradicate the entire termite colony before they invaded the house.
14 years, 5 baby girls, 3 houses, 3 different treatments & in 2012, no termites! If these guys ever decide to move again, regardless of any evidence of termite activity, the first thing they will be doing I'm sure will be arranging a professinol termite inspection.
