Termite Treatment Options

A termite evaluation is the initial step in termite management

Termites and the termite swarm have belonged to our natural world for millions of years. Also commonly referred to as white ants they are resilient and consistent, being found, on average, in every 3rd property.

Australian conditions are especially appropriate for termites. The Australian standard recommends that a termite evaluation be performed every 12 months and more frequently in high risk areas.

Baiting or Dusting Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in specific areas around your house and once termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active component, so efficient that only a small amount is required. Termites consume the bait and bring it to back the nest where they share it with other termites.

The Other Initial Option 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 very same product used as the food source in most of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Small holes are made in plagued 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 typical activities long enough to transfer the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the nest. It will typically take 3-6 weeks for the nest to be impacted by the dust.

Termite dusting nevertheless does not provide an on-going defense to a building from future termite attacks. There may be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are constantly developing brand-new nests.

This is why a termite soil treatment is critical 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 on the building and construction style of your house and can be discussed with the professional on the day of the termite evaluation.

Termite soil barrier treatments are applied to soil areas in which the structure is in contact with consisting of:

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab borders.
  • External wall borders.
  • Implementation of soil treatment.

If the distance between the soil and flooring woods is greater than 400-mm the soiled areas within the subfloor are trenched and treated. In any case we generally prefer to treat the entire of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage 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 areas could consist of:.

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

There Are Two Main Kind Of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by creating a termite poisonous barrier around a home. The treated areas 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 tough to attain due to the building and construction and design of your house and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are primarily used throughout the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are unable to detect that a location has been treated and hence do not avoid the treated area. 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 result in 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 include spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in specific areas around your house and once termite activity is found, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait used is non-chemical that contains an active component, so efficient that only a small amount 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

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

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

Termite baiting systems work very well, and once a nest is eliminated or controlled, the termite monitoring stations will continue to protect your house against new termite activity. The estimated time of nest removal is 3– 6 months.
