Pest Control Services
ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL are termite treatment specialists and we boast extensive experience in locating and eradicating termites from properties in and around Sydney for good.
For nests that are more difficult to spot through traditional inspection methods, we have the latest in thermal imaging technology that enables us to pinpoint internal termite locations with 100% accuracy, and 0% invasion of your home or property. This means we find the little buggers fast, without the need to add further damage to your walls.
How We Work:
First and foremost- we arrive ON TIME, GUARANTEED.
You can count on us getting to you as planned, no mucking around.
Secondly, it is critical to first assess the current condition of your property:
- Are there any obvious signs of termite infestations?
- Are there parts of the property construction that could encourage future attacks?
- Are there any environmental conditions on the property could encourage future attacks?
A full timber pest inspection and a timber pest report is the starting point do decide what is required for effective termite control, wood decay management and borer control.
Termite Treatment after Finding Termites:

Termidor Termite Treatments
Until Termidor was released, protecting those homes involved chemicals that are repellent to householders as well as termites and which have to be applied in a perfect, unbroken barrier. Termidor has quickly established itself as the most effective and convenient protection for homes with no built-in barrier.
This type of termite protection doesn’t depend on a repellent barrier and actually eliminates termites rather than just repelling them. This is because termites cannot detect Termidor. It has the added advantages of low toxicity and no odour. In fact, Termidor is a soil termiticide that does not require occupants to leave the house while the treatment is carried out.
The First Undetectable Termite Trap
Older chemical treatments create a repellent barrier that termites won’t go through, but will try to find a way around. While they are usually effective, they have three main drawbacks; applying them creates a repulsive smell that lasts a day or two and can be difficult to live with; they deter termites, but do nothing to reduce the colony; and even a gap of a few centimetres in the barrier can cause the treatment to fail. Termidor supersedes those barriers with an extremely efficient in-ground trap that termites can’t detect the Treated Zone. Far from being repelled by a barrier, termites forage into the Treated Zone and are killed in one of three ways:
- Termites that ingest or contact enough Termidor can be killed outright.
- Those that only receive a low dose of Temidor become dysfunctional. They stop feeding and grooming each other, neglect their environment, become diseased and die.
- Many affected termites find their way back to the colony. Other termites then receive a lethal dose through normal social interaction or cannibalism.
Heavy spraying is rarely required for termite treatments.
Why Choose ASSASSIN?
After many years in the pest control industry Darryl & his team at ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL have amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to finding termites & appropriating the most effective termite control method. Our treatments are aimed at not only eradicating your current termite problem but also ensuring that the termites will stay away in years to come.
Termites have a 200 million year evolutionary history closely related to cockroaches. They can be found right throughout Sydney and NSW. Knowledge of their biology is crucial for building and home inspections; something the ASSASSIN has finely tuned over the last 3 decades working in the pest control industry.
Termites forage for food over a large area (approximately 100 metres) in search of timber and operate and live in a central nest or colony. The worker termites partially digest the timber before returning to the nest to feed the colony. This can cause considerable damage to our homes and bank accounts, as many Sydneysiders will attest, and can happen in a matter of months. Termites are social insects, and there are multiple castes within the colony.
Along with our number 1 priority- our commitment to you as our customer, we are also certified termite experts with decades of experience. Assassin founder Darryl Quinn and his team were selected as technical advisors to DuPont for the development of their treatment chemical ‘Altriset’. You can trust in our knowledge of termites in Sydney.
