Termite Treatment Options

A termite evaluation is the initial step in termite management

Termites and the termite swarm have been part of our natural world for millions of years. Also commonly referred to as white ants they are resilient and consistent, being found, typically, in every third property.

Australian conditions are particularly ideal for termites. The Australian standard recommends that a termite evaluation be performed every 12 months and regularly in high risk areas.

Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are put in particular areas around your house and as soon as termite activity is discovered, baits are put inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so efficient that only a small amount is needed. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Option Is:

Termite dusting is the very first phase of a termite treatment as it entails 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 Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in infested wood or directly onto termite trails. Utilizing a small puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested wood, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust getting away and to reduce disturbance of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their typical activities long enough to transfer the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the colony. It will usually take 3-6 weeks for the colony to be impacted by the dust.

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

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

2nd Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the preferred alternative for eliminating termite infestations. However, soil treatment does depend on the construction design of your house and can be discussed with the specialist on the day of the termite evaluation.

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

  • Subfloor.
  • Concrete slab boundaries.
  • External wall boundaries.
  • Implementation of soil treatment.

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

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

These areas might include:.

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

There Are 2 Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by developing a termite harmful barrier around a house. The treated areas end up being a no-go zone for termites. In order to work correctly, these termiticides require to be applied in an unbroken zone around the structures. This can be hard to achieve due to the construction and design of your house and if there is concrete against the house. Repellent termiticides are primarily used during the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to detect that a location has been treated and hence do not avoid the treated area. When the termites go through the termiticide, they make contact with the active ingredient, return to the colony and infest the unwary termites, which will lead to their extermination.

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

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are put in particular areas around your house and as soon as termite activity is discovered, baits are put inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so efficient that only a small amount is needed. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The tracking and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Putting tracking stations into the ground around the whole external boundary of the property.
  • Putting special stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

Termite baiting systems work very well, and as soon as a colony is eliminated or managed, the termite tracking stations will continue to secure your house against new termite activity. The estimated time of colony removal is 3– 6 months.

In many cases your house is the most pricey item you might own; do not let it be eaten away by termites!
