Guide to Successful Termite Treatment Vaucluse
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! There are steps you can take to ensure that your home is not an active termite attraction. 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. With soil treatment, you need to add Termiticide to the soil that surrounds the area to be protected. This process needs an expert pest control service and we recommend you call pest control Vaucluse – Able Pest Abaitment – 0419 941 994 – to arrange an appointment to discuss your soil treatment requirements. Termiticide acts by repelling 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.

Seeking Professional Help for Your
There are a large number of pest control agencies offering wide array of services so it is not difficult to find one to suit your needs and requirements.

The chemicals used by professionals are very powerful and most of them are not available to the public directly. So, if you want to preserve your precious house and other buildings and keep them termite-free, appointing professionals is really the only option for any type of termite treatment.
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.
