There are a number of options available for the treatment and control of termites in and around buildings but before proceeding with any Termite Treatment, it is critical to asses the full extent of the termite infestation and damage by having a Termite Inspection and possibly an Invasive Inspection carried out by a fully licensed and insured Pest Management Technician.
Termite Treatment Options
There are four common methods of Termite Treatment, these are Termite Baiting, Termite Dusting, Termite Foaming and Chemical Barriers.
The method best suited for you will depend on the location and species of termites, the construction of the building, environmental conditions and your budget.
Dusting termites involves puffing a dust into termite mud leads to coat the termites present in the dust which is then carried back along the leads and transferred to other termites along the way. In order for dusting to be effective, a significant amount of termites have to be coated with dust, this is a long and meticulous process that requires a high degree of activity in the leads.
Due to it’s expanding nature, a termiticide foam is typically be used to treat areas that would otherwise be difficult to effectively apply termiticide to control termites, such as wall cavities and other hard to access areas.
We work with all of the major Australian Termite Monitoring and Baiting brands including Exterra, TermatriX, Nemesis and Sentricon AlwaysActive. We will help you choose the system that is right for you based on your budget and your participation, for example you may prefer to have your system professionally managed or you may prefer to check the stations yourself .
The soil surrounding the perimeter and sub-floor of the building is chemically treated to eradicate termites trying to gain entry inside the building. This is often known as a Chemical Barrier or Treated Zone and dependent upon the soil type, the slab construction and sub-floor situation this treatment may not be ideal for a chemical treatment.
What is the difference between Termite Treatment and Termite Protection?
Termite Treatment is about elimination whereas Termite Protection is about prevention
Termite Treatment is focused on treating and eliminating active termite colonies from your property whereas Termite Protection is focused on preventing active termites from infesting your property and minimising termite damage.
