Guide to Successful Termite Treatment Redfern
No matter in which part of the world you reside, termites can invade your houses and offices at any time, but Australia is particularly susceptible. The damage caused due to termites is increasing, and it has even started spreading waves of tremor amongst home owners. So, if you wish to protect your home, office and valuable furniture items from termite damage, do not wait for the symptoms to appear. Take some effective steps right away.
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 requires professional assistance and we recommend you call pest control Redfern – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to arrange an appointment to discuss your soil treatment requirements. 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.
DIY Termite Treatment?
Most homeowners would not attempt to carry out termite treatments or preventative measures bearing in mind the massive damage that can occur from these pests if they don’t place the treatment effectively. It is always recommended to call in an expert for something as important as this.

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 one of the traditional methods used for pest control and it is offered by almost every pest control agency.
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.
