Guide to Successful Termite Treatment Maroubra
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! 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. Moisture catalyzes the growth in termites and you should begin your termite treatment from here. Think of ways that protect things such as doors, cabinets, beds, and tables from the affect of moisture.
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. 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. This process needs an expert pest control service and you
can consult pest control Maroubra – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to ask for an appraisal as the appropriateness of a soil treatment for your home. Termiticide acts by repelling 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.

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.
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.
