Termite Protection

Termites come to your home looking for food; they get there by travelling through the ground from a nest that may be hundreds of metres away. Almost most homes will be at risk from termites.
That is why there are several ways we can help to protect your home from being destroyed from these termites.

Options include:

  • Termite Interception and Baiting System is non- intrusive and a long term protection for your property, a station are placed around your property to intercept termites and creates a complete termite interception zone around your home. These stations are monitored on a regular basis over 12 months; you will receive a report from the Consultant on each visit stating the outcome of the checks to all the stations.
  • Chemical treated zone for inside and outside your home is safe and effective to complete termite nest elimination and full protection from future termite attack. Because termites cannot taste or smell the liquid treated zone they walk through it, ingest it and carry it on their bodies, spread the liquid throughout the colony. As a result, your home is termite-free within three months and fully protected.

Termite Prevention Tips

  • Fix leaking taps broken downpipes, overflow pipes from air condition units can be plumbed into a nearby down pipe, this will take away a potential moisture source for foraging termites.
  • Don't store termite food such as firewood, newspaper, timber or cardboard. Don't let any stored items create hidden pathways to the structure above or the interior of the house. Don't let stored items block termite inspection access or subfloor ventilation.
  • Sub-floor ventilation will minimise moisture which helps to discourage termite attack, be free of building debris, provide cross ventilation.
  • Termites like moisture, weep holes can be obstructed by pavers, timber decking and/or vegetation which can result in a build-up of moisture conditions. Arrange for weep holes to be cleared from obstructions.
  • Don’t provide termites with extra food, use only treated or naturally resistant timbers for landscaping, fencing, posts. Other timbers only encourage attack.
  • Don’t take any chances have your home inspected each year by a professional. It doesn't take long and can mean early detection, which can save you time and money. It might even save your home.

Chemical Barrier

Termite attack is rarely recognised in a building, by the time the termite infestation is recognised, there could be substantial damaged occurred to the timbers, which insurance does not cover. Having a treated barrier around your home will prevent future damage so you live free from the worry of termites.

What’s Involved
A liquid chemical is applied to the soil to form a continuous treated zone to the entire foundation of your building, which could include under concrete around piers. Pesties termite consultants will coordinate the installation to suite you and your family’s requirements, this will ensure a complete safe and effective barrier to your home.

Which Chemical Barrier
Pesties termite consultants will offer you the best choice to suit the needs for you and your home, chemical design do differ and can give a life expectancy from 5 to 10 years; some chemicals do deter the termites away, while others have a transfer effect. Warranties offered are from 5 to 10 years depending on the chemical used.

Termite Colony and its Castes

A colony consists of several castes.

Queen and King Termite

 


One Big Production

Their primary function in the colony is to reproduce, whilst establishing a colony they must also feed and care for their young until their sufficient numbers to take over the duties.

 

Worker Termite

 

The Excavator

The colony’s largest number of the castes, they perform all the duties except defence and reproduction, this wingless and blind worker is the cause for so much damage to homes.

 

Soldier Termite

 

The Defender

Front line defence is the sole purpose of the Soldier, protect against all predators they have large mandibles and heads, and strong jaws, some species can spray to defend the colony.


Alates

 

The next generation

At certain times of the year these winged termites leave and take flight from the colony to find a suitable site, mate and start a new colony.
