White Ant Control Sydney – What You Can Do

Are you concerned about white ant control? Do you have a problem with white ants in your area or on your property? White ants – more correctly called termites – are a common pest in suburban Australia. The risk of infestation is quite high in many areas so it’s important to have a white ant control strategy in place.

Those who don’t undertake some type of white ant control can end up paying a high price. White ants may be tiny but they have voracious appetites and can leave a hefty repair bill for the homeowner. White ant control and prevention is essential if you want to protect your home.

How to Go About White Ant Control

White ant control really begins when you purchase a new home. If you’ve built a new home, some sort of white ant control will most likely be in place but it’s up to you to take responsibility for future white-ants control.
If you’re purchasing an existing home, consider making it conditional on a satisfactory termite inspection report – if you don’t and termites are present, white ant control and treatment along with repairs to your new home may cost much more than you planned on spending!

Once you’re in your new home, your white ant control strategy should involve a professional inspection once or twice per year. At just $200 – $350 for the average suburban home, it’s great value for money. You can also participate in your own strategy by learning about white ants and the tell-tale signs of their presence.

Not only can white ants be highly destructive, but the type of white ant most likely to attack your Australian home – the subterranean termite – works undercover and is hard to spot, making your white ant control strategy very important.

If you’re in an area where termites are prevalent, you may prefer to take your white ant control a step further than regular inspections and have a ‘termite barrier’ placed around your home. Chemical barriers are frequently used as a means of white ant control.

Chemical Barriers

Pest control methods have come a long way in recent years. Increased understanding of termite behaviour has brought about the development of new white ant control methods that utilise the termites’ grooming and feeding habits against them.
One of these modern methods is a chemical barrier that cannot be detected by termites, allowing the poison to be transported into the termite colony and passed on to others. Many pest controllers believe this is a very effective form of white ant control.

Other Things That Assist White Ant Control

Using only timbers and wood chips that have been treated to deter termites, ensuring you don’t stack wood against your home, removing old tree stumps, and not having shrubbery up against the home can aid white ant control by making the area less attractive to termites.

"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."
