Guide to Successful Termite Treatment Kingsford
Termite treatment in the Eastern Suburbs is very important, especially considering the prevalence of termites in Australia. You need to be aware that termites can cause devastating effects in a very short period of time. Indeed, they have been known to eat through a house to the extent that it is fit only for demolition in a matter of months. And you will not be covered by insurance!
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.
The good news is that termites can actually be prevented from colonising your home and surrounding areas, with a professional 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 Kingsford – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to arrange an appointment to discuss your soil treatment requirements. Termiticide soil treatment repels termites, and the effects can last for several years. 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?
Although it is possible to buy termite treatment products that you can apply yourself, this course is not recommended. If the treatment fails, you will not be covered by your household insurance, whereas if you get a licenced pest control expert, not only is there much less likelihood that the treatment will fail, but there will be insurance there as a backup in the event of a catastrophe.

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. This method is far less popular than other less toxic and less disruptive methods of termite control.
Another option are in ground termite baiting systems. These have the advantage that the process is completely non-toxic to humans and pets. These baiting systems are used for active termites.
