Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in specific areas around your home and once termite activity is discovered, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so effective that only a percentage is required. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Option Is:

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

To Apply Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in infested timber or straight onto termite tracks. Utilizing 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 decrease 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 nest. It will generally take 3-6 weeks for the nest to be impacted by the dust.

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

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

Second Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored option for removing termite problems. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend on the building and construction style of your home and can be discussed with the service technician on the day of the termite inspection.

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 typically prefer to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage 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 might consist of:.

  • Patios.
  • Paths.
  • Garages.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Bathrooms.
  •  Laundries.
  • External Perimeter 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 developing a termite hazardous barrier around a home. The treated areas become a no-go zone for termites. In order to work properly, these termiticides require to be applied in an unbroken zone around the structures. This can be tough to achieve due to the building and construction and design of your home and if there is concrete against your home. Repellent termiticides are primarily used during the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to discover that a location has been treated and hence do not avoid the treated location. When the termites travel through the termiticide, they make contact with the active ingredient, return to the nest and infest the unwary termites, which will lead to 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 include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in specific areas around your home and once termite activity is discovered, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so effective that only a percentage is required. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The tracking and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Placing tracking stations into the ground around the entire external perimeter of the property.
  • Placing special stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

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

In most cases your home is the most expensive item you may own; do not let it be eaten away by termites!
