Termite Treatment Options

A termite examination is the first 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 particular locations around your home and as soon as termite activity is found, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical which contains an active component, so effective that only a percentage is required. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Option Is:

Termite dusting is the very 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 used as the food source in the majority of the termite bait systems.

To Apply Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in infested lumber or straight onto termite routes. Using 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 escaping and to decrease disturbance of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their normal 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 defense to a structure from future termite attacks. There might be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are continuously developing new nests.

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

2nd Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the preferred choice for getting rid of termite invasions. However, soil treatment does depend upon the building style of your home 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 borders.
  • External wall borders.
  • Application 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 treated. In any case we generally choose to treat the whole of the subfloor. This increases surface area protection in the subfloor and for that reason increases the possibility of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

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

These locations might include:.

  • 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 Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by producing a termite hazardous 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 structures. This can be difficult to accomplish due to the building and style of your home and if there is concrete against the house. Repellent termiticides are mostly used throughout the pre-construction stage.

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 location. When the termites travel 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 offers a 5-year warranty on non-repellent treatment. Conditions do apply and are subject to the house structure and style.

Termite Baiting & Tracking Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in particular locations around your home and as soon as termite activity is found, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical which contains an active component, so effective that only a percentage is required. Termites consume 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 involves

  • 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 extremely well, and as soon as a colony is removed or managed, the termite monitoring stations will continue to safeguard your home against new termite activity. The approximated time of nest removal is 3– 6 months.
