When it comes to protecting your home from termites there are many options, some of our more popular and most successful options are:
1. Termite Chemical Barrier
A full termite chemical barrier around your property is the only way to fully protect your home from a termite attack. The Drilling and Injecting of a repellant or non-repellant chemical around your home is the number one tried and tested method to prevent an invasion. Termite barriers are not limited to solely house slabs, we can also effectively treat garden sheds, house extensions and granny flats.
2. In-ground baiting
In ground baiting stations are designed to intercept any foraging termites and to concentrate their feeding to inside the small plastic bait stations. In-ground Stations contain timber interceptors which termites find irresistible. These need to be inspected on a regular basis until the termites have been intercepted and have begun feeding. At this point we will add a Requiem Termite Bait to the In-ground Station. Requiem is a Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor designed to prevent the growth and natural moulting process of the termite .This results in the elimination of the colony whilst avoiding the use of toxic chemicals in the environment.
3. Tree Stump/Spot Treatments
If a Termite nest/colony has been detected on your property then the simplest and often the most cost effective method of treatment is to Spot treat the problem. Termites love to build nests in and around wooden fence posts, old tree stumps, wood piles and in heavily mulched garden beds. Once located a non-repellent chemical will be applied directly to the nest to destroy the colony.
Tree Stumps if left untreated will provide an ideal habitat for a termite colony to thrive as the slowly decaying wood will now become food for the entire colony plus the trees hidden root systems now operate as an underground highway for termites to freely move along and remain completely undetectable to any known inspections techniques and potentially cause a breach of your homes termite barrier.

Timber Pest Inspections
Did you know that timber pests are the number 1 cause of structural damage to all homes in Australia. The only way for a home owner to ensure that their home is free from a Termite or a Timber pest infestation is with an Annual Timber inspection. Having a full home inspection carried out at least every 12 months is essential as very few Insurance companies will cover your home for termite damage.
