    Hello

    Somewhere along the line we lost contact with our regular pest control service.

    Which included:

    Routine inspection/spraying

    Also

    Perimeter pipping topped up with poison.. Etc.

    Can we use another service and do I need to find a firm that does them both?

    Assuming it would be OK as we are out of builders warranty period now.

    Thanks in advance

    Do you not have an old invoice?

    Does your protection system (If you have Kordon etc) include the need for specially accredited inspections?

    No old invoice.

    And yes they were accredited inspections.

    Thanks for your help

    In that case, check your termite barrier warranty conditions to see if you have to select one of those accredited inspectors to maintain your termite protection warranty.

    I can’t recall how long this warranty might last but it might be a different duration to the builder’s warranty.

    Usually you will find a durable notice (yellow or orange sticker) in the electricity meter box.
