Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

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

The Other Preliminary Choice Is:

Termite dusting is the first stage of a termite treatment as it involves using active termites. Sydney’s Castle Hill Pest Controluse Termidor Dust which is non-repellent and is 95.5% food alpha cellulose, the same material used as the food source in the majority of the termite bait systems.

To Apply Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in plagued timber or directly onto termite tracks. Using 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 typical 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 nevertheless does not offer an on-going security to a structure from future termite attacks. There might be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are constantly developing 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 eliminating termite problems. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend upon the building and construction style of your home and can be discussed with the professional on the day of the termite inspection.

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.
  • Implementation of soil treatment.

If the range between the soil and flooring timbers is greater than 400-mm the soiled locations within the subfloor are trenched and dealt with. In any case we normally prefer to treat the whole 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 roughly 20 to 30-cm centres (1.2-cm holes), injected and re-concreted, as if nothing occurred.

These locations might consist of:.

  • Patios.
  • Courses.
  • Garages.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Bathrooms.
  •  Laundries.
  • External Perimeter 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 toxic 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 structures. This can be challenging to attain due to the building and construction and design of your home and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are mainly used during the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to spot that an area has been treated and for this reason do not avoid the treated location. When the termites go through the termiticide, they make contact with the active component, return to the nest and infest the unwary 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 design.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

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

The tracking and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Positioning tracking stations into the ground around the whole external perimeter of the property.

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

Termite baiting systems work very well, and as soon as a nest is removed or controlled, the termite tracking stations will continue to safeguard your home against new termite activity. The estimated time of nest removal is 3– 6 months.
