Termite Prevention Options
There are three different termite prevention options. Surekill techninians will explain all options for preventing termites entering a building. They will advise which is the best option for the location and demographics of the property.
The prevention options include
Monitoring and Baiting System
Chemcial Barrier Treatments
Drilling and Injecting
Baiting for termites is a very effective and affordable method of termite control. With baiting we can now eliminate the termite colony with minimal amounts of termiticide and to continue monitoring the site without the use of toxic chemicals. Surekill technicians are trained, qualified and happy to use a monitoring and baiting system.
Drilling and Injecting Trees r title
A complete Chemical Barrier Treatment is created by trenching or drilling around the external and internal footings of your home and applying liquid termitacide as per label directions and to the Australian Standards. There are two main options with chemical barriers repellent or non repellent chemical.
Repellent Chemical the termites know the chemical is present, termites keep moving along the barrier to find a break in the chemical barrier.
Non Repellent Chemical means the termites don't know the chemical is in the soil and once they come into contact their days are numbered.
Drilling of trees is undertaken to determine if there is termite activity in a tree. To determine if the tree has termites the technician will firstly inspect the tree externally. Some species of termites eat the bark or form nests on the outside of trees. Whereas other Termites species nests can be found inside the tree and no evidence of them on the outside. To find out if there is termite activity in a tree we then drill in strategic places to determine that they are present. If activity is found then the activity is treated with Termidor.
