Termite Treatment Options

A termite evaluation is the primary step in termite management

Termites and the termite swarm have been part of our natural world for millions of years. Also commonly known as white ants they are resilient and persistent, being found, typically, in every 3rd property.

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

Baiting or Dusting 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 used is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, 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 Option Is:

Termite dusting is the first phase 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 exact same material used as the food source in the majority of the termite bait systems.

To Apply Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in infested lumber or directly 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 reduce disruption of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their regular activities long enough to move the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the nest. It will generally take 3-6 weeks for the nest to be affected by the dust.

Termite dusting nevertheless does not provide an on-going protection 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 vital following termite dusting.

Second Phase of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the favored alternative for getting rid of termite problems. Nevertheless, soil treatment does depend upon the building design of your house and can be discussed with the specialist on the day of the termite evaluation.

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 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 typically prefer to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area protection in the subfloor and therefore increases the probability of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

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

These locations might include:.

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

There Are Two Main Kind Of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by producing a termite toxic barrier around a house. The treated locations end up being a no-go zone for termites. In order to work properly, these termiticides need to be applied in an unbroken zone around the structures. This can be tough to accomplish due to the building and style of your house and if there is concrete against your home. Repellent termiticides are primarily used throughout the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to discover that an area has been treated and for this reason 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 style.

Termite Baiting & Tracking 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 used is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, 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 monitoring and baiting is a complete system that involves

  • Placing monitoring stations into the ground around the entire external boundary of the property.

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

Termite baiting systems work very well, and when a nest is gotten rid of or managed, the termite monitoring stations will continue to secure your house against new termite activity. The estimated time of nest elimination is 3– 6 months.

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