Termite Treatment Options

A termite evaluation is the initial step in termite management

Termites and the termite swarm have belonged to our natural world for millions of years. Also commonly called white ants they are resilient and relentless, being found, on average, in every third property.

Australian conditions are especially appropriate for termites. The Australian standard recommends that a termite evaluation be performed every 12 months and more frequently in high risk areas.

Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in particular areas around your home and once termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active component, so efficient that only a percentage is needed. Termites consume the bait and carry it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The Other Initial Choice Is:

Termite dusting is the very first stage of a termite treatment as it requires using active termites. Sydney’s Castle Hill Pest Controluse Termidor Dust which is non-repellent and is 95.5% food alpha cellulose, the exact same material used as the food source in most of the termite bait systems.

To Apply Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in infested timber or straight onto termite tracks. Using a little puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested timber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust escaping and to minimize disturbance of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their regular activities long enough to move the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the colony. It will generally take 3-6 weeks for the colony to be affected by the dust.

Termite dusting nevertheless does not provide an on-going defense to a structure from future termite attacks. There might be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are continuously establishing new nests.

This is why a termite soil treatment is crucial following termite dusting.

Second Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored option for eradicating termite invasions. However, soil treatment does depend upon the construction design of your home and can be discussed with the professional on the day of the termite evaluation.

Termite soil barrier treatments are applied to soil areas in which the structure is in contact with including:

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab boundaries.
  • External wall boundaries.
  • Execution of soil treatment.

If the range between the soil and flooring woods is greater than 400-mm the soiled areas within the subfloor are trenched and dealt with. In any case we normally choose to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area protection in the subfloor and for that reason increases the possibility of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

Concrete boundaries are drilled at around 20 to 30-cm centres (1.2-cm holes), injected and re-concreted, as if nothing occurred.

These areas could include:.

  • Patios.
  • Paths.
  • Garages.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Bathrooms.
  •  Laundries.
  • External Boundary Walls.
  • Soiled areas will be trenched or rodded.
  • Concrete areas will be drilled.

There Are Two Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by producing a termite toxic barrier around a house. The treated areas end up being a no-go zone for termites. In order to work correctly, these termiticides need to be applied in an unbroken zone around the foundations. This can be challenging to attain due to the construction and design of your home and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are mostly used throughout the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to find that a location has been treated and for this reason do not avoid the treated area. When the termites travel through the termiticide, they make contact with the active component, return to the colony and infest the unwary termites, which will result in their extermination.

Castle Hill Pest Control provides a 5-year warranty on non-repellent treatment. Conditions do apply and are subject to the house structure and design.

Termite Baiting & Tracking Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in particular areas around your home and once termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active component, so efficient that only a percentage is needed. Termites consume the bait and carry it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The monitoring and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Positioning monitoring stations into the ground around the whole external perimeter of the property.

  • Positioning special stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

Termite baiting systems work effectively, and once a colony is eliminated or controlled, the termite monitoring stations will continue to secure your home against new termite activity. The approximated time of colony removal is 3– 6 months.

For the most part your home is the most costly item you may own; don’t let it be eaten away by termites!
