Pestforce was established in 1983 by Max Clarke. Max foresaw the urgent need for an Australian Pest Control Company specialising in termite infestation management, using environmentally sensitive control programmes to be carried out with the maximum possible safety to both Pestforce clients and staff. Shortly after establishment, Pestforce acquired Hills District Pest Control of Dural, N.S.W, who had built up an excellent service and safety record in their previous 18 years operation. Highly experienced staff from those early days are still members of the Pestforce Team, which is still headquartered at Dural and proudly remains a medium sized, family owned business. We began to use the Sentricon Colony Elimination System in 1996 when Dow AgroSciences commenced field trials and development in Australia. Since then we have carried out constant evaluation, and developed enhancements to the system to improve performance. Pestforce played a key role in the development and effective use of Sentricon above-ground baits, and the development of the use of underground wings to increase hits and reduce abandonment of in-ground baits. This culminated in a baiting strategy so radically different from the basic systems being used, it became known as the SafeTNet Termite Management Strategy. No other strategy can match its performance in the interception and elimination of termites. Pestforce continues to be at the leading edge of termite management: Pestforce has successfully used search dogs to locate termites within buildings for a number of years. We use the latest state-of-the-art termite detection devices including Thermal Imaging, Borescope, Termatrac (a microwave termite detection device), and moisture meters. With this arsenal of tools and our depth of knowledge we provide termite detection that is second to none. We have been called upon to provide special reports and non-intrusive inspection techniques to heritage houses such as Government House, Vaucluse House, the Sydney Art Gallery, and the Old Sydney Mint, as well as many other museums and heritage houses around NSW. We have also provided advice and termite detection services to assist CSIRO research. In 1999 the New Zealand Government engaged our consulting service to address a quarantine issue they had been unable to resolve for over twenty years. After we assessed the problem and made recommendations, we were employed by the New Zealand Government to install the Sentricon Colony Elimination System at seven properties. We continue to be contracted by the New Zealand Government to manage further termite incursion sites found in 2006 and 2007.
