If you discover termites on your

Sydney property, you need to get onto the problem promptly! Left untreated, termites can run right out of control, and cause untold damage to a property. You need to know how to apply termite control methods eliminate these pests from your place.

Termite control treatments

For a start, repellent products are not recommended. The fact that these are repellents means that termites can detect them, and they are smart enough to find a way to move around them.

Chemical barrier products

A better way than repellents is to use chemical barrier products such as Termidor, Premise or Biflex. These are environmentally-safe termicide treatments used at a low concentration. The treatments are applied in areas of termite activity and travel, and as the termites cannot detect them, they pick up the termicide substance on their bodies and carry it back to the nest. The feeding and grooming habits of termites result in the termicide being spread to the whole colony. Depending on the product used, chemical barriers can take a little time to eradicate the colony. Termidor is one of the most effective, having been shown to exterminate a colony in as little as a few weeks.

Baiting stations

Termite baiting stations are another method used by pest controllers. The stations contain timber baits that attract the termites and cause a toxic reaction, although they may work more slowly than chemical barriers. Baits may be suitable for smaller infestations or in cases where other methods are not practical or feasible. They may also provide a good preventive measure to add on top of a full treatment program.

The ‘how to’ of termite control using a preventive strategy

Good termite control may also involve removing timber stacks and old tree stumps from the property, clearing away pooling water, and ensuring you have good sub-floor ventilation. Termites love warm, moist conditions and lots of cellulose to feed on. If that cellulose comes in the form of untreated timbers in your building, then without a prevention and treatment plan in place you may be a ripe target for termite activity!

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."
