Termite Treatment Options

A termite assessment is the first 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 particularly suitable for termites. The Australian standard recommends that a termite assessment be carried out 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 positioned in specific areas around your house and as soon as termite activity is found, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical which contains an active component, so reliable that only a small amount 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 first phase 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 same material utilized as the food source in most of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in plagued timber or straight onto termite routes. Utilizing a small puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested timber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust leaving and to minimize disruption 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 typically take 3-6 weeks for the colony to be impacted by the dust.

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

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

Second Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the preferred alternative for eliminating termite problems. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend upon the construction style of your house and can be discussed with the specialist 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 perimeters.
  • External wall perimeters.
  • Implementation 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 generally choose to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage in the subfloor and therefore increases the probability of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

Concrete perimeters are drilled at around 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.
  • Courses.
  • Garages.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Bathrooms.
  •  Laundries.
  • External Border 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 harmful 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 challenging to attain due to the construction and design of your house and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are primarily utilized throughout the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to spot that an area has been treated and hence do not avoid the treated location. When the termites travel 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 offers a 5-year warranty on non-repellent treatment. Conditions do apply and are subject to the house structure and design.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in specific areas around your house and as soon as termite activity is found, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical which contains an active component, so reliable that only a small amount is required. Termites ingest 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

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

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

Termite baiting systems work effectively, and as soon as a colony is eliminated or managed, the termite monitoring stations will continue to protect your house against new termite activity. The approximated time of colony elimination is 3– 6 months.

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