Guide to Successful Termite Treatment Clovelly
If you live in Australia, termites are a fact of life. They are more prevalent in some areas than others, but all of Australia is prone to the problem. Eastern Suburbs termite treatment is therefore an important expense that the homeowner should budget for, even after taking all reasonable precautions to prevent termites from colonising in or around your home in the first place.
Prevention is better than Cure!
Prevention or Termite Treatment?
The extent of damage that termites can cause can vary greatly depending on the species of termites, the size of the colony, the age and vigor of the termite colony, as well as availability of food sources – the timber in your home! The best thing one can do to prevent household items from being damaged due to termites is to control, and preferably eradicate, the growth of termite population. Termites love moisture, so keep all timber sources in and around your home as free from moisture as you can, and of course, do not leave pieces of timber around for months on end.
Can termites be prevented with preventative termite treatments? Yes, they can! There are soil treatments which, when done properly and by a professional, can indeed prevent termites for several years at a time. With soil treatment, you need to add Termiticide to the soil that surrounds the area to be protected. This process needs professional assistance and we recommend you call pest control Clovelly – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to arrange an appointment to discuss your soil treatment requirements. Termiticide acts by repelling termites, and a soil termite treatment can last for up to ten years, although an inspection after five years is essential. Alternatives to Termiticide exist that have advantages, as Temiticide can actually trap termites inside the perimeter if there happens to already be an active colony that went undetected.
DIY Termite Treatment?
