Termite control is being vigilant in protecting your most valued investment from termite attack. Termites are often referred to as white ants. Termites are soft-bodied social insects with three castes differing in body shape and size. The three types are called workers, soldiers and reproductives (the Queen).
Termites are silent destroyers and reproduce rapidly which makes them all the more dangerous; they eat away at the timbers in and around your home without you knowing they are there. It is estimated that in Queensland one in three buildings will be attacked by termites during their life span. We recommend at least annual pest inspections to homes and in some instances our termite technician will recommend more frequent termite inspections depending on the surrounding environmental pressures affecting the structure.
We carry out our termite inspections in accordance with the Australian Standards AS3660.2 providing an electronic report with recommendations and advice on how to protect your home from termites by reducing conditions conducive to termite attack.
Our inspections are complemented if required with the use of a thermal imaging camera and/or a Termatrac T3i. The thermal imaging camera detects what the human eye cannot see; this infrared camera identifies heat generated from termites within the areas of the home that are not visible for example your wall voids.
The Termatrac T3i is a multi-function device with a termite detection radar, thermal sensor and moisture sensor. Both devices offer our customers state of the art technology when inspecting their homes. We can also provide an obligation free proposal for the best suited termite management system.
One of the termite management system we recommend is a Termidor Termite Barrier which we install around the perimeter of the the home by way or drill and inject & trench and flood. Termidor is the number one sought after product used when installing termite barriers. BASF is the manufacturer of Termidor and have carried out extensive studies with proven results claiming Termidor to be Australia’s leading termiticide. When installing a baiting and monitoring system we recommend the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System.
Exterra claims to be the world’s most effective termite baiting system offering total termite colony elimination. Exterra is environmentally friendly and donates to Australian Wildlife Conservancy each time a system is installed. Both systems work extremely well and we back them one hundred percent in protecting your home against termites. We will recommend the system that best suits your building design, construction and environmental conditions. Be vigilant with managing termites; termites can cause extensive damage!
