Guide to Successful Termite Treatment Sydney City
The Australian climate provides a wonderful breeding ground for termites. This is bad news for the home owner. But there are some steps that you can take to avert a disaster, bearing in mind that termites can eat an entire house in just a few months.
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. 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.
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. This process needs professional assistance and we recommend you call pest control Sydney City – 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. There are also non-repellent alteratives that many homeowners prefer, which are also less toxic.
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 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.
