Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in particular areas around your house and once termite activity is found, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active component, so efficient that only a percentage is required. Termites ingest the bait and bring 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 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 Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in infested lumber or directly onto termite trails. Utilizing a small puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested lumber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust leaving and to decrease disturbance of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their regular activities long enough to transfer 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 however does not provide an on-going defense to a building from future termite attacks. There might be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are constantly establishing brand-new nests.

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

2nd Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored choice for getting rid of termite infestations. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend upon the building and construction style of your house and can be discussed with the specialist on the day of the termite inspection.

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 distance between the soil and flooring lumbers is greater than 400-mm the soiled areas within the subfloor are trenched and dealt with. In any case we usually choose to treat the whole 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 took place.

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 2 Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by producing a termite toxic barrier around a home. 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 structures. This can be challenging to accomplish due to the building and construction and design of your house 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 go 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 positioned in particular areas around your house and once termite activity is found, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active component, so efficient that only a percentage is required. Termites ingest 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

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

Termite baiting systems work effectively, and once a colony is gotten rid of or managed, the termite tracking stations will continue to secure your house against new termite activity. The approximated time of colony removal is 3– 6 months.

In many cases your house is the most costly item you may own; don’t let it be gnawed by termites!
