Termite Treatment Options

A termite assessment is the first step in termite management

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

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

Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

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

The Other Initial Option Is:

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

To Use Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in plagued timber or directly 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 getting away and to decrease disturbance of the termites.

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

Termite dusting however does not provide an on-going defense to a structure 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.

2nd Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the preferred alternative for removing termite invasions. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend on the construction design of your home and can be discussed with the service technician on the day of the termite assessment.

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.
  • Application of soil treatment.

If the distance 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 therefore increases the likelihood 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 absolutely nothing happened.

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 2 Main Kind Of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by developing a termite poisonous barrier around a house. The treated areas become 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 tough to achieve due to the construction and style of your home and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are primarily used during the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable 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 style.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

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

The monitoring and baiting is a complete system that involves

  • Putting monitoring stations into the ground around the entire external perimeter of the property.

  • Putting unique stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

Termite baiting systems work extremely well, and when a nest is gotten rid of or controlled, the termite monitoring stations will continue to secure your home against new termite activity. The estimated time of colony elimination is 3– 6 months.
