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! 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. With soil treatment, you need to add Termiticide to the soil that surrounds the area to be protected. Soil treatment requires professional assistance and we recommend you call pest control Edgecliff – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to arrange an appointment to discuss your soil treatment requirements. 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. 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.

Another, becoming less, common termite treatment is fumigation, which can again be performed only by pest control professionals. During this process, the pest control professional visits the affected area and sprays the area with a special chemical. Once the area is sprayed, no person is allowed to enter it for some time. Fumigation is considered too toxic by many professional pest control experts today, who prefer other methods of termite treatment.
In ground termite baiting systems are another fairly common method of termite treatment. This option will be used in various circumstances, including when soil treatment is impractical or not desired (e.g. if the homeowner has pets and are concerned about exposing them to chemicals placed in the soil). Termite baiting systems are only effective once termite activity has already been detected.
Lastly, the choice of the method for treating termites vary from one household to another, and you should discuss with your pest control professional the way which best matches your requirements and the nature and extent of your termite problem.
