It is a common knowledge across all businesses, regardless of industry, that good staff can make or break you. For instance, have you ever been to your favorite coffee shop, only to be greeted by a new barista, who isn't quiet up to scratch. It can be an instant put off. The same applies to our choice of trades people, the trusted electricians, plumbers, pest controllers you let into your home, to carry out what you know will be quality work. 

So how do you tell the good from the bad when it comes to pest control technicians? How about starting with a little background knowledge into the training that is involved in developing one of Multipests knowledgeable, professional & hard working technicians.

New Product changing the Termite Game

This month sees the much anticipated release of BASF's newest product in the war against Termites, Termidor HE. This new product will drastically change the way Termite Treatments can now be completed. 

For over 15 years, Termidor has been recognised as one of the best Chemical Termite Treatment products on the market in Australia. Which is hardly a surprise when we look at the Product Manufacturer BASF.  BASF is a German chemical company and the largest chemical producers in the world. The BASF Group comprises of subsidiaries and joint ventures in more than 80 countries and operates six integrated production sites and 390 other production sites in Europe, Asia, Australia, the Americas and Africa. Its headquarters is located in Ludwigshafen, Germany. BASF has customers in over 190 countries and supplies products to a wide variety of industries. Here is Australia, BASF has been actively 'creating chemistry' for over 90 years. 

So what's so great about Termidor HE?

HE stands for High Efficiency. So like the name suggests, this product is designed to be more effective, more convenient and provide customers and technicians alike a new level of confidence.  

What does this mean for you the consumer?

Termidor HE has opened the door for Applicators to rethink the way they apply Termite Treatments. The Advanced Formula developed for HE allows the treatment to more effectively disperse throughout the soil. Therefore increasing the projected coverage zone, whilst reducing  the number of drill holes required to perform an effective treatment. In particular one of the best kickbacks from this technology is the preservation of tiled areas & more importantly less chance of damage to these areas. 

Just like Termidor SC, HE has a labelled life expectancy of up to 8 years and where applicable, BASF will warrant this product for coverage up to $2 million dollars under their Termidor Assurance Warranty. 

Specialty Training required

BASF requires all companies to have their technicians & staff out complete specified training in order to become a recognised Accredited Termidor HE Applicator.
