Termite treatments can be carried out in numerous ways and depends on where termites are located, what species they are and the most effective treatment to carry out the eradication of a termite colony.
Before carrying out a termite treatment it is imperative to assess the infestation and damage caused by way of a termite inspection and in some cases an invasive inspection which will determine the course of treatment required. These inspections MUST be carried out by a licensed and insured timber pest technician.
A Termiticide dust is lightly puffed into the workings of the active termites. The termites are coated or pick up the dust when moving throughout these areas dusted.
The dust works by a transfer effect with termites touching and feeding each other which will in time eradicate the colony.
Dusting can be a drawn out lengthy process and patience is required.
Foaming has an expanding nature and is ideal for majority of areas where active termites are located. Foaming is ideal ideal for wall voids, skirting boards, window and door architraves.
The foam works in the same manner as termite dusting in the way of transfer effect.
This process is much quicker and easier way to eradicate the colony.
Chemical Treated Zone/Barrier
A chemical barrier is a treated zone where the soil surrounding the perimeter of your dwelling and subfloor is chemically treated for treatment and prevention of termite attack.
The soil is treated with an approved Termiticide to the Australian Standards 3660.2-2000 and works in 2 ways.
1.Kills active termites if present when installing barrier.
2.Gives your property a treated zone/barrier for prevention of future termite attack.
