What’s involved in a Termite Treatment
1. A visual Termite Inspection must be completed internally and externally by a professional Licensed Inspector prior to any Treatment, this is to ensure all activity is located and from here a Termite treatment program can be put in place.
2. A Treatment for active Termites using an approved Termiticide is required, the treatment involves treating live termites so they can travel the solution back to the nest to eliminate the colony. Careful consideration is a must to ensure an effective treatment, minimum disturbance is critical.
3. Termite Nest,
Finding the nest – This is not always possible, as in most cases the Subterranean Termite Nest can be 40 – 50 metres away from the current infestation. It is possible that the nest maybe in a neighbouring property or in a tree over the road. Termites build nests underground, behind retaining walls, in tree stumps and in trees that may not be visible by the untrained eye, it is even possible that a professional may not be able to locate the nest if no signs are visible.
4. Whether Termites are located or not, recommendations are always to protect the property. There are options available when it comes to protecting a property from Termites with systems such as, Termite Barriers, Treated Zones and Interception and Baiting Systems that surround the perimeter of the property al play an important part of a Termite Management program.
