Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in particular areas around your house and when termite activity is discovered, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, so efficient that only a percentage is required. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The Other Preliminary Choice Is:

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

To Use Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in infested timber or directly onto termite routes. Utilizing a small puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested timber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust escaping and to reduce disturbance of the termites.

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

Termite dusting however does not offer an on-going defense to a structure from future termite attacks. There may 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 option for getting rid of termite problems. However, soil treatment does depend on the building 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 areas in which the structure is in contact with including:

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab perimeters.
  • External wall perimeters.
  • Implementation 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 typically choose to treat the whole of the subfloor. This increases surface area protection in the subfloor and for that reason increases the likelihood of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

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

These areas might consist of:.

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

There Are 2 Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by developing a termite poisonous barrier around a home. The treated areas 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 attain due to the building and style of your house and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are mostly utilized throughout the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to identify that a location has been treated and thus do not avoid the treated area. When the termites go through the termiticide, they make contact with the active ingredient, return to the colony 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 & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are positioned in particular areas around your house and when termite activity is discovered, baits are positioned inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, so efficient that only a percentage is required. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The monitoring and baiting is a complete system that includes

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

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

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

Most of the times your house is the most pricey item you might own; don’t let it be gnawed by termites!
