Termite Treatment Options

A termite examination 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 relentless, being found, usually, in every 3rd property.

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

Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

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

The Other Preliminary Option Is:

Termite dusting is the 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 Apply Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in plagued timber or directly onto termite routes. 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 minimize disruption of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their regular activities long enough to transfer the Termidor Dust to unsuspecting termites within the colony. It will usually 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 building from future termite attacks. There may be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are constantly 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 favored choice for getting rid of termite infestations. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend on the building style of your house and can be discussed with the technician on the day of the termite examination.

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

  • Subfloor.

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

If the distance between the soil and flooring timbers 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 whole 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 borders are drilled at approximately 20 to 30-cm centres (1.2-cm holes), injected and re-concreted, as if absolutely nothing took place.

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 Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by producing a termite harmful barrier around a house. The treated areas become a no-go zone for termites. In order to work properly, these termiticides need to be applied in an unbroken zone around the structures. This can be tough to accomplish due to the building and style of your house and if there is concrete against your home. Repellent termiticides are primarily used throughout the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to discover that a location has been treated and thus do not avoid the treated location. When the termites pass through the termiticide, they make contact with the active component, return to the colony and infest the unsuspecting 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 & Tracking Systems.

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

The monitoring and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Positioning monitoring stations into the ground around the entire external boundary of the property.

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

Termite baiting systems work extremely well, and when a colony is gotten rid of or managed, the termite monitoring stations will continue to safeguard your house against new termite activity. The approximated time of colony removal is 3– 6 months.

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