Going into further detail, Melissa begins by providing us a brief overview of the firm and the award-winning services the team effortlessly deliver. “Operating across New South Wales and South East Queensland (including Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast), Termicide has extensive experience across the board in all aspects of pest control. Whether you have termites eating you out of your home, spiders meeting you in places you would rather they wouldn’t, or even fleas catching a ride in on your family pet, we have solutions for all our clients. Termicide services the preconstruction termite industry through professional builders and private owner builders, and provides quality post construction pest control and termite services through real estates, body corporates and private homeowners. Thanks to our great service, quality products and workmanship, we have an active word of mouth which continues to grow.” For over 20 years, the firm has been able to quickly respond to its clients requirements by utilising the knowledge of its team members and using the latest pest control technology, as Melissa explains further. “Here at Termicide, our highly trained and qualified staff use specialist technology and complete ongoing training to ensure our standard of service is second to none. Over 80 technicians and support staff have been trained in all aspects of their role to ensure that our clients get an outcome that far exceeds their expectations.

Termicide is proud to have a diverse team across all departments working together to be the leader in the industry. Additionally, Termicide’s innovative Termiglass Non-Toxic Physical Termite Management System, made from 100% locally sourced, recycled crushed glass, has ensured the firm has remained at the forefront of environmentally preferable pest solutions over the last two decades.” 2020 was a very challenging year for the business with many changes occurring following the outbreak of COVID-19. However, as Melissa points out, after putting in the appropriate measures the firm were able to thrive. “Adapting to COVID-19 hasn’t been easy, but a strict contact tracing procedure has certainly made everyone feel COVID safe. Many other businesses have been affected much more than ourselves, so we are fortunate in that regard.” Finally, Melissa discusses the firm’s approach to recruitment before outlining some of its plans for 2021 and beyond. “Potential new staff are always of interest to us, so we encourage them to get in touch. Beyond 2021, we will continue to give our clients, both homeowners, and professionals, the quality service they have experienced from Termicide up until now.” Company: Termicide Pest Control Contact: Melissa Quirk Website:
