What You Need To Know About Termites

Termites invade homes by travelling from their colonies in trails to the foundations of your property. Cracks or gaps around pipes, in the mortor are often the point of access for termite entry. Homeowners can also get termites from:

  • Wooden structures, like porches and decks, in direct contact with the ground
  • Stacks of firewood that lean against the house
  • Damp soil near foundations from leaking faucets, gutters, or downspouts
  • Trees and shrubs planted close to the building.
Above ground locations in the house that remain damp enough to support termites without them needing to return to the moist conditions found in the soil.

Termite Treatments

If you’ve located active termites it is very important not to disturb them in any form. We recommend a full inspection of your property to confirm if any other activity maybe present.

The method of treatment can vary dependent on the location of the termites, the methods used to treat the termites could be either by use of a Termiticide liquid, foaming agent or a dust. After the affected areas have been treated we will conduct a follow up inspection on the treated areas to confirm that the desired result was achieved.

Termite Prevention

Chemical Barrier
The property/building can be protected against concealed termite entry by installing a chemical barrier using an approved Termiticide. For existing homes a chemical barrier has to be installed manually . This involves digging a trench around the external perimeter of the property.

Termite Baiting
This requires installing a bating system around the external areas of you property. The maintenance of the baits would require property owner to commit to a program of monitoring the baits on a frequent schedule.
