Effective Frankston Termite Treatment
When you are in need of effective termite treatment, there are various products available on the market that includes a number of chemically based products. It is highly advisable that you always consult with professional operators who specialise in pest control.
In addition, it is advisable to find out information regarding the chemicals and methods used to rid your home of these pests.
Options For Termite Treatments
There are a number of termite treatment types available for homeowners. Deciding which treatment will suit you best should be based on options recommended by a trusted and experienced termite specialist. Every home and the area are unique, which means your termite treatment must be customised in order to be effective.
Treatment Options For Subterranean Termites
Liquid Application Along With A Monitoring And Bait System
The treatment plan for subterranean termites involves a liquid treatment that is used on infestation sites and entry points around the home. In addition, the use of monitoring stations positioned at specific locations around the property can be used in order to detect activity.
If the termite controller discovers signs of any termites, the monitoring system is then replaced with a bait station. Termites will then ingest this bait which they share with the colony in the nest. This method leads to an effective control of the termite colony.
Liquid Application Using Non-Repellent Or Repellent
These specific treatments are suitable for use outside and inside the home. The treatment can also be directly injected to an area that is infested. The repellent products are designed to deter the termites.
Any termites that come across the repellent will be move away from the vicinity of the home.
The non-repellent products used for termites are not easy for the pests to detect. Forager termites are generally the first to come into contact with the chemical, which they then transport back to the nest.
The chemical is then shared among the colony during grooming and feeding. This method leads to an effective control of the termite colony members.
Treatment Options For Drywood Termites
This treatment is odourless and effective immediately and offers protection from any future termite infestations. The treatment is applied to the wood directly or can be injected into the wood.
Fumigation Or Entire Structure Treatments
An “entire” structure treatment or fumigation is recommended when the presence of multiple colonies are discovered. The fumigation treatment uses a tent that envelops the entire home before gas is pumped in.
This gas then spreads into the home reaching all the crevices and cracks that are harbouring the termites.
Termite treatment inspections are generally performed for when you have decided to sell your home or you suspect a termite infestation. If you suspect that only certain areas of your home are vulnerable, you can request a targeted or limited inspection.
If you need the inspection for selling or buying a home, you will require a “full” inspection. Expect the cost of a termite inspection of your home to be in the vicinity of $250 to $350.
Full And Limited Inspections
Full inspections cover an examination of the entire home for any termite vulnerabilities and damage. This inspection will involve the exterior and the interior of the home that includes areas such as your shower stalls, ventilation, attic area and your foundations.
Limited or targeted inspections are usually conducted on localised areas in the home in order to determine whether there is an infection present. The inspector will examine your wood and then determine the damage and provide you with a quote to remedy the damages.
Other inspection types include re-inspection and supplemental. Re-inspections are conducted in order for verification on any findings from another extermination firm.
Termite Baiting And Soil Treatments
When using a baiting system, worker termites will find the system and think that the bait is a source of food. They then transport this bait back to their colony which they feed to the other members. This leads to the death of the termites within the colony.
In addition, to the baiting system pest controllers can supplement this treatment with residual barriers to decrease any damage in active areas.
When subterranean termites are discovered within structures, exterminators will position monitoring stations inside the soil. These stations provide a method in detecting areas of high-traffic, where the control bait can be used.
This control bait contains slow-acting insecticides that will progressively kill the termites over a course of weeks or months. This baiting system is extremely effective for ensuring colonies perish, but using only control bait can prove to be a long process.
Soil Treatments For Termites
Many home-owners are often unaware that their home-insurance policies will not cover damages caused by termites to “structural” timbers. However, indemnity insurance for professional pest or termite controllers is available that covers damage caused to timbers by subterranean termites that gain entry to a structure through soil that has been chemically treated.
When there are termites present in the home at the same time of a soil treatment, they are unable to return to the nest safely. Termites will return to their colonies every couple of days to obtain the necessary moisture that is needed for them to survive as well as to groom, and feed the other termites, queen, king and nymphs.
The installation process involved in a “chemical” soil barrier will require specialised equipment and expert knowledge to create a continuous and complete barrier to protect the home against infestations and termite entry.
The Right Termite Treatment For Your Property
To begin with an inspection of your house conducted by a trained pest professional is essential to a successful treatment approach. After the treatment, your termite controller from Frankston termite control will provide you with an inspection report to confirm the effectiveness of the treatment.
