Termite Control

Standard Termite Inspection

Standard termite inspections are recommended to be carried out at least once every 12 months. If there is current termite activity then the recommendation is every 3, 6 or 12 months depending on the severity. The report is confined to disclosure of the discovery or non-discovery of termites present on the day of inspection and the identification of possible problem areas that could be a point of attack. Standard inspection include areas of the property that are accessible, such as:

  • interior/exterior of the building
  • roof void / sub floor
  • tree stumps / garden timber

Chemical Barriers

Chemicals which kill termites are called termicides. A termicide is applied to the soil under the slab and around the footings, pipes and other structures of the building to create a barrier which will kill the termites on contact.

Termite Baits

Termite baits or baiting systems are a very effective way to kill off the colonies that are causing the problem. The bait is a cellulose food which is treated with a inhiditor type insecticide.. The termites are attracted to the food and take it back to the colony. Over time the size of the colony will reduce.
