This survey is conducted to understand the cause of pest problems, type of pest, the area infected by pests and how many pests have been there. After that, the Geotermix team will report to the property owner the cause of the pests. Andre said that the cause of pests on property was caused by various factors, both internal and external factors, such as the property being near rivers and forests.
After discussing with the property owner, if the property owner agrees with the Geotermix team plan to fix the pest issue, they will immediately execute it. Typically, the Geotermix team recommends a 3 months treatment with 2 visits per month to property owners for low pest population. They will recommend several services like sanitation, prevention, and exclusion if it has high pet population. The duration of treatment depends on the type of pest and the severity of the pest problem on a property, but the average system contracts their treatment with their clients is 3 to 6 months.

Treatment is done by injecting termiticide into the soil, especially in the potential area of termite mud tubes that usually appear. Termiticides in the soil will spread throughout the building and termite workers will be exposed when approaching the building in search of food. One exposed termite can pass termiticidal fluid to other termites through physical contact and eating. As this process continues, the termite colony population will decrease significantly.

Last thoughts for property owners
Andre advised all of us to be more selective in choosing pest control services because many pest control services are illegal, do not have a license and will harm you property owners. Legality is important for you to question in order to believe that the pest control services you are using are truly professional.
The way to see the legality and professionalism of pest control services is:
- Ask for evidence, do they have permission? You need to ask for their permission papers.
- Ask for evidence, do they join pest control associations or are they related to this service?
