North Adelaide, Prospect and the surrounding areas have fantastic parks and parklands. There are some great attractions like the Adelaide Swimming centre and Adelaide Oval.
The North Adelaide area comes alive of late, as there is so much to do in the area. If you want to have a lazy day then the local restaurants and cafes are fantastic. For the sports enthusiast, football and cricket are just a short distance away.
Due to the large number of restaurants in the area, we are seeing a dramatic rise in cockroach and rat numbers. This is causing some major issues for restaurants in the area.
Possums love the area as well because there are so many trees in the area. Older houses have lots of entrance points for these critters to enter through and we are constantly getting calls about them.
Houses over 100 years old, which have never seen termites, are now seeing termite damage. This may be because of the changing environment. New housing developments are disturbing termite colonies. Termites get evicted when buildings are demolished and quickly search for a new home.
Jim’s Pest Control North Adelaide – Helpful tips
The biggest tip we can give our customers is the importance of having an annual termite inspection. It is also extremely important that a chemical barrier or termite monitoring system be put in place.
We see every week the damage that termites cause to houses in North Adelaide and Prospect. We tell owners weekly that we have found major termite damage. They are shocked to learn that it is going to cost tens of thousands of dollars to fix.
There is no insurance for termites. People can’t believe that termites cause 1.5 billion to 2 billion dollars worth of damage to Australian properties every year. A simple annual visual termite inspection can detect termites in the very early stages. Termite monitoring systems or chemical barriers can dramatically reduce the risk to your property.
Client unknowingly builds termite nest
The local Jim’s Pest Control technician received a call for termites in a pile of wood. When he arrived, he found that the owner had stacked some timber off cuts, neatly into a pile. The pile was 6 foot high by 4 foot wide and 3 foot deep.
The client had gone to get some timber for his fire and couldn’t get any as they were stuck together. It turns out that termites had found the timber pile and had built a nest.
A crowbar was needed to remove two layers of timber and a massive thriving termite colony was uncovered. It was an eye-opener to the client as this pile had only been there for 5 months. Even having the timber up off the ground did not stop the termites.
