Termite Treatment Options

A termite evaluation is the primary step in termite management

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

Australian conditions are particularly appropriate for termites. The Australian standard recommends that a termite evaluation be carried out every 12 months and more often in high risk areas.

Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in specific areas around your home and once termite activity is discovered, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a percentage is required. Termites ingest the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The Other Initial Alternative 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 exact same product used as the food source in the majority of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in infested lumber or straight onto termite routes. Utilizing a small puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested lumber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust leaving and to decrease disruption of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their typical activities long enough to transfer the Termidor Dust to unsuspecting termites within the nest. It will usually 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 structure 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 important following termite dusting.

Second Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored alternative for eliminating termite invasions. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend on the building and construction style of your home and can be discussed with the technician on the day of the termite evaluation.

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

  • Subfloor.

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

If the distance between the soil and flooring lumbers is greater than 400-mm the soiled areas within the subfloor are trenched and treated. In any case we usually 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 perimeters are drilled at around 20 to 30-cm centres (1.2-cm holes), injected and re-concreted, as if nothing took place.

These areas could consist of:.

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

There Are Two Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

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

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to identify that an area has been treated and thus do not avoid the treated area. When the termites pass 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 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 placed in specific areas around your home and once termite activity is discovered, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a percentage is required. Termites ingest the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The tracking and baiting is a complete system that involves

  • Putting tracking 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 once a colony is eliminated or managed, the termite tracking stations will continue to protect your home against new termite activity. The estimated time of nest elimination is 3– 6 months.
