Why You Need Termite Treatment

A CSIRO survey found that 1 in every 3 homes in Australia has termites within the vicinity of the property. In fact, Australia is one of the highest risk places in the world, due to the warm, humid, subtropical climate, providing an appealing environment for more than 350 species of termites and more than a trillion termites in total.

 

Termites cause severe structural damage to your building, which can be financially devastating if it continues for long enough. It is estimated that pests infest and damage 1 in every 5 houses in Australia and are responsible for more than $100 million of damage to homes each year, which is not covered by insurance. So what are you waiting for?

How We Can Help

We use state-of-the-art technology for Brisbane termite inspections, to ensure that we treat the entirety of termites within the structure and vicinity of a property to effectively eradicate them to prevent recurrence. Termite treatment needs to target and kill all termites – if any are left, they will quickly proliferate and your problem will return.

 

In fact, the average termite colony exceeds one million and their lifespan is one to two years, with Queens living up to ten. As you can see, its absolutely critical that you seek the best help for termite treatment in Brisbane.

 

If youre wondering whether you have termites, you can look for key signs like hollowed or damaged wood, blisters in wood flooring, termite droppings or mud tubes – but its possible that you may miss any evidence of termites initially, and only notice when the problem has already caused notable destruction. The first move is to get a termite inspection, before moving onto full termite treatment to rid your Brisbane home or commercial property from termites for good.

How Does Termites Treatment Work?

Termites are quite often referred to as the silent destroyers, and unless you are having regular inspections, or the damage they have caused is plainly evident, they can go undetected for long periods of time causing sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.  One of the best lines of defence you can have for your home is a termite treatment zone but how do you choose which one is right for your home.

The first step you should always take is to have a termite inspection carried out and discuss your options with a trained professional pest control technician, who will advise you on which is the best treatment for your circumstances. There are three main options that a pest control technician may discuss with you:

1. Chemical Treatment Zone

 

A Chemical Treatment Zone if a very effective means of ensuring a continuous zone around your property, that acts as a barrier preventing termites from moving through the soil and entering your home.  A Chemical Treatment Zone can be installed at a property via either a trench and treat system where a trench is excavated around a property and is treated with termiticide then backfilled.  The other means of installation is drill and inject which is used when a property is skirted by either paths or driveways or in a concrete slab foundation.  Small holes are injected through the slab which are then injected with the termiticide then sealed with plugs once complete.  The Termiticide is usually a non-repellent chemical which does not kill the termite instantly but gives it time to return to the colony where it infects other termites killing the colony at the point of origin.   A Chemical Treatment Zone can last from 5 to 8 years before it needs to be reinstated.

2. Inground Baiting Systems

 

If your preference is to use a low chemical alternative you may want to look at an Inground Baiting System.  These systems work by providing a food source for the termites by the way of cellulose inserts such as paper, wood or cardboard installed placed in plastic bait stations located around the perimeter of a property.  The food source is treated with a low toxic IGR which affects the termite’s exoskeleton which eventually kills them as they are unable to form a new exoskeleton as they grow.  The termite will also bring the bait back to the colony infecting the termites at the point of origin.  A baiting system requires regular inspection and maintenance to remain effective.

3. Physical Barrier

 

A physical barrier is a non-toxic permanent barrier that requires little to no maintenance or renewal.  A physical barrier doesn’t kill the termites but will make it difficult for termites to enter a home.  There are a number of physical barrier options which will depend on where the barrier is required, these include reticulation systems, termite shields (ant caps), a fine grade stone particle, stainless-steel mesh and a chemically treated plastic or fabric sheeting.

Whichever system you choose it is vital to still have an annual inspection (we recommend six monthly in high-risk areas) as a barrier can be compromised by things such as additional building work to a home, large garden works or leaving items such as timber up against a home

 If you should find termites on your property or in your home, whatever you do, DO NOT disturb them or try and treat them yourself, this will only cause them to move possibly leading to further infestation or damage.

Gerard did a great job of our termite inspection. He was very thorough and while on site was able to pick up other pest issues which he was able to treat on the day as well for a small charge. Would highly recommend!
