| There are no species of termites in Tasmania which are destructive
However, there are a range of other pests that inhabit domestic
and commercial premises.
The older style acute toxicity pesticides (usually solvent based
with an awful smell) are commonly used by the fly-by-night
"cut-price" operators as an overall "blanket-spray" for
general pests or in the subfloor area for termites. Some of
the insect pests show chemical resistance given the widespread
use of these pesticides over the last 30 years.
Unfortunately, the AUSTRALIAN pest control industry has a mixed
reputation ... good and bad. It is far too easy to start up
a pest control business employing people to use the hazardous
pesticides who do not have the training to provide a safe and
effective service. Further information in the Consumer
Advice section of this website, including some important
tips from The
Australian Pest Controllers Association Inc. on selecting
a professional pest controller.
