Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in particular locations around your house and when termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, 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 Alternative 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 exact same material used as the food source in most of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in plagued wood or straight onto termite routes. Utilizing a small puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested wood, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust escaping and to decrease 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 nest. It will generally take 3-6 weeks for the nest to be affected by the dust.

Termite dusting however does not provide an on-going security to a building from future termite attacks. There may be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are continuously establishing brand-new nests.

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

2nd Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored option for eliminating termite problems. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend upon the building and construction 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 locations in which the structure is in contact with including:

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab boundaries.
  • External wall boundaries.
  • Execution of soil treatment.

If the distance between the soil and flooring woods is greater than 400-mm the soiled locations within the subfloor are trenched and dealt with. In any case we generally choose to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage in the subfloor and for that reason increases the probability 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 locations might consist of:.

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

There Are 2 Main Kind Of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by creating a termite poisonous barrier around a home. The treated locations become a no-go zone for termites. In order to work correctly, these termiticides need to be applied in an unbroken zone around the foundations. This can be challenging to accomplish due to the building and construction and style of your house and if there is concrete against the house. Repellent termiticides are mainly used during the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to spot that a location has been treated and for this reason do not avoid the treated area. When the termites travel through the termiticide, they make contact with the active ingredient, return to the nest and infest the unsuspecting 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 style.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in particular locations around your house and when termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, 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 involves

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

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

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