Termite Treatment Options

A termite examination is the primary step in termite management

Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in specific locations around your house and when termite activity is discovered, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a small amount is required. Termites ingest the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Alternative Is:

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

To Apply Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in plagued wood or directly onto termite tracks. Using a little puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested wood, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust leaving and to decrease disturbance of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their regular activities long enough to transfer the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the nest. It will normally take 3-6 weeks for the nest 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 continuously developing brand-new nests.

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

2nd Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the preferred alternative for removing termite infestations. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend upon the building and construction style of your house and can be discussed with the service 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 consisting of:

  • Subfloor.

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

If the distance between the soil and flooring timbers is greater than 400-mm the soiled locations within the subfloor are trenched and treated. In any case we generally choose to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area protection in the subfloor and therefore increases the possibility of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

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

These locations could include:.

  • 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 Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by developing a termite hazardous barrier around a home. The treated locations end up being 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 tough to accomplish due to the building and construction and design of your house and if there is concrete against your home. Repellent termiticides are primarily utilized throughout the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to identify that a location has been treated and hence 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 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 design.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in specific locations around your house and when termite activity is discovered, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a small amount is required. Termites ingest the bait and bring 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 perimeter of the property.

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

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

In many cases your house is the most pricey item you might own; don’t let it be gnawed by termites!
