We found out that we had termites so we organised a pest guy to come and fix the problem. We went and told our neighbors on all sides, they were all in shock and thanked us for telling them and said they would check their properties. Well imagine my disappointment when the pest guy arrived and told us that he had treated 2 of our neighbors within the past year and a half…….They never told us!

  • One of our neighbours was doing house alterations and had a pest control company there. A few days later we discovered our garden next to adjoining fence was absolutely alive with cockroaches. Out came the strong spray from the garden shed in a great hurry. It had been used to kill some weeds that had been very hard to kill off. No more cockroaches. Would have been nice to have been warned.

  • A little bit of courtesy goes a long way, if they had told you, it could have been caught earlier. Wow, at least you are the bigger person, maybe it will cause them to think twice next time something like that happens.

  • well it was very good of you to tell them and hopefully they will learn in the future it is better to be honest.

  • Not everyone is that thoughtful. Just goes to show what kind of people they are.. A little kind gesture goes along way when you think of others…. Hopefully next time they are more thoughful.

  • Just shows how much of a better person you are!


    • to be honest we told everyone because its a community problem. It is no good us getting rid of them if the neighbors have them

  • We have had the same problem, the termites we had are gone after treatment but who’s to say they aren’t still active elsewhere in the neighbourhood as a few people have told us their problems. We now have the termite baiting system monitoring our home.
