We specialise in Termite Management Systems ~ installation of chemical barriers, baiting & monitoring systems and physical barriers. Each Termite Management System we recommend we consider to be the most appropriate choice for the property. The Termite Manager bases his recommendations to comply with current industry standards and best practice for the building design, construction and surrounding environmental factors. Each system has its place to effectively offer the building owner the best protection for their property from subterranean termites. Prior to installation we carry out a thorough termite inspection of the property in accordance with Australian Standards 3660 and provide a full report with recommendations.
We recommend Termidor as chemical of choice when installing chemical barriers. We install chemical barriers by way of drill & inject and trench & flood to the external perimeter of the building. We carry out a soil replacement to ensure the Termidor chemical binds effectively to the soil extending the lifespan effectiveness of the Termidor chemical. It is for this reason we recommend that any un-cemented pavers are lifted and relayed rather than drilled.
The photo to the right is of a our technician pumping Termidor chemical under a slab; the holes have been drilled 200mm apart as per the Australian Standards.
We recommend the Exterra Baiting and Monitoring System as our Baiting & Monitoring System of choice. We have experienced very effective results with the system. The picture to the right is of an active station showing how the focus has attracted the termites to the station which we then bait. The termites will feed on the requiem bait which is very palatable to the termites and they take this back to the nest and it is fed through the colony. The requiem bait works effectively by preventing the termites from making chitin; without chitin termites cannot make a new exoskeleton and die while trying to moult.
