Guide to Successful Termite Treatment East Sydney
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?
How much damage termites can cause will depend up the species of the termites, how established the colony is, and the availability of timber for feeding on. Preventing termites is not easy, but there are steps you can take to minimise the possibility. This does not take the place of professional inspections, however, to ensure that your home is in fact termite-free. 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.
Another, and much more effective, way to prevent termites from infesting and eating your house and surrounding areas is soil treatment. Termiticide is added as a barrier around the perimeter of the home. This is achieved by digging a trench around the home, and drenching the soil with this agent. Soil treatment needs an expert pest control service and you
can consult pest control East Sydney – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to ask for an appraisal as the appropriateness of a soil treatment for your home. Termiticide soil treatment repels termites, and a soil termite treatment can last for up to ten years, although an inspection after five years is essential. Termiticide is described as a repellent system, as it repels, and keeps termites outside the perimeter barrier. There are also non-
repellent options for termite prevention that you may wish to discuss with us as well.
