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 Termidor termiticides.

Termite Baiting - 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.

We recommend Bayer Termite Bait or X-Term Termite Bait.

Termite Dusts - This method involves the dust being applied to the active termites and their infested termite workings. The dust sticks to the termites and the timber they are feeding on. The dust will kill any termites that come into contact with it, either directly or by picking up the dust from treated surfaces or other contaminated termites.

This technique can be very effective in eliminating active termites from the structure.

We recommend Termidor Dust.

Termite Foams -  work on a very similar principle to termite dusts – the product is applied to the areas of termite activity, covering the termites and surface of the feeding sites. 

We recommend Termidor Foam.

NOTE - termite dusts and termite foams are only used to eliminate active termites from an area, they will not prevent a future attack on your property. 

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.
