Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are put in specific areas around your house and as soon as termite activity is discovered, baits are put inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a percentage is required. 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 requires using active termites. Sydney’s Castle Hill Pest Controluse Termidor Dust which is non-repellent and is 95.5% food alpha cellulose, the same product utilized as the food source in the majority of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in infested timber or directly onto termite tracks. Using 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 regular 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 affected by the dust.

Termite dusting nevertheless does not provide an on-going security to a structure from future termite attacks. There may 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 favored choice for removing termite problems. However, soil treatment does depend on the construction design of your house and can be discussed with the professional 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 boundaries.
  • External wall boundaries.
  • Implementation of soil treatment.

If the range 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 normally choose to treat the whole of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage in the subfloor and for that reason increases the likelihood 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 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 Two Main Types of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by creating a termite harmful barrier around a home. The treated areas 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 foundations. This can be challenging to achieve due to the construction and style of your house and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are primarily utilized during the pre-construction stage.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to find that an area has been treated and thus do not avoid the treated location. When the termites go 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 & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are put in specific areas around your house and as soon as termite activity is discovered, baits are put inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical which contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a percentage is required. 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 special stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

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