There are five different termite treatment options. Surekill techninians will explain all options for eliminating the termites. They will advise which is the best option for the location and demographics of the property.
Termite treatment options include
monitoring and baiting
drilling and injecting
Termite Treatment Options
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.
Termite Foaming is used to kill the termite colony by direct application to termite activity and to kill termites exisiting within a struture by treatment of infested timbers and voids.
The foam is applied into the wall by drilling into the wall where the active termites are found. Then a non repellant chemical is mixed with a foaming agent and the B&G Foaming Machine makes the non repellant chemical foam with compressed air. It is injected into the wall cavity. Upon completion the holes are sealed.
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.
Drill and Treatment of Trees title
Drilling and Treatment of trees should be undertaken if there is 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.
Termidor Dust is applied on to the termites, either inside your house or onto activity around the yard (trees, fences etc). After treatment the termites carry the dust particules on their bodies and eventually back to the nest (where ever that may be) via the unique Transfer Effect TM. Extensive Australian research proves that it takes as little as 2 to 4 weeks for total termite elimination.
