Termite Control Options

HOME OWNERS who find signs of termite activity inside a building have several options for professional protection from continued termite infestation and timber damage in the building...

 Initial Inspection & Report to A.S 3660 - a thorough inspection of buildings and surrounds - detailed written report to Australian Standard 3660.

 Chemical Soil Treatment around the perimeter and sub-floor of a building - to eradicate termites attempting to gain entry into the building - we recommend Premise or Termidor termiticides.

Termite Baiting - installation - monitoring of termite bait stations - this method relies heavily on the termites "finding" and consuming sufficient bait - recommended in some limited circumstances, particularly in homes where a subfloor treatment is not practical.

 Building Modification & Maintenance - termite risk reduction measures - may include improving subfloor ventilation - removal of timber in contact with the soil - improving inspection access areas.

 Subsequent Inspections to A.S.3660 - essential - at least 6 - 12 month intervals where signs of termite activity has been previously located close by susceptible buildings or timber structures.
