Termite Treatment Options

A termite inspection is the initial step in termite management

Termites and the termite swarm have become part of our natural world for millions of years. Also commonly called white ants they are resilient and consistent, being found, on average, in every 3rd property.

Australian conditions are especially ideal for termites. The Australian standard suggests that a termite inspection be performed every 12 months and more often in high risk locations.

Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in specific locations around your house and as soon as termite activity is discovered, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical which contains an active component, so efficient that only a small amount is required. Termites ingest the bait and carry it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Choice Is:

Termite dusting is the very first stage 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 same material used as the food source in the majority of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in infested lumber or straight onto termite routes. Using a little puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested lumber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust getting away and to decrease disturbance of the termites.

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

Termite dusting nevertheless does not offer an on-going security to a structure 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 Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored alternative for eradicating termite infestations. However, soil treatment does depend upon the building and construction design of your house and can be discussed with the technician on the day of the termite inspection.

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

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab borders.
  • External wall borders.
  • Application of soil treatment.

If the range between the soil and flooring lumbers is greater than 400-mm the soiled locations within the subfloor are trenched and dealt with. In any case we usually prefer to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area protection in the subfloor and therefore increases the probability of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

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

These locations might consist of:.

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

There Are Two Main Kind Of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by developing a termite toxic barrier around a house. The treated locations become a no-go zone for termites. In order to work properly, these termiticides need to be applied in an unbroken zone around the foundations. This can be difficult to accomplish due to the building and construction and design of your house and if there is concrete against your home. Repellent termiticides are mainly used throughout the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to discover that an area has been treated and for this reason do not avoid the treated location. When the termites go through the termiticide, they make contact with the active component, 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 placed in specific locations around your house and as soon as termite activity is discovered, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical which contains an active component, so efficient that only a small amount is required. Termites ingest the bait and carry it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The monitoring and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Placing monitoring stations into the ground around the whole external boundary of the property.

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

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