Below are some before and after photos of local weed spraying in creek line.
On completing a visual termite inspection, the above picture shows a termite nest which was concealed behind a gyprock wall. We removed 3 buckets of termite workings. Thankfully for our client, we were able to bait out the termites before they caused further damage to other areas of the house.
The above photo shows active termites detected in the monitoring station. Once activity is discovered in the stations, we bait them out using our specialised bait. This will eliminate the termite colony. The monitoring stations are proving their worth!
This picture shows the timber piers in contact with the soil and are attached to the building. Recommendations would be to fit termite proof ant caps between the pier and the bearer, treat the sub-floor and have at least an annual termite inspections completed to this property.
We install chemical pre-treatments to new building constructions, and also to all post constructions, if you are renovating.
Whether you have a concrete slab base or a sub-floor area, we can update your termite management system in place to protect your home.
It is strongly recommended that you have an annual visual termite inspection completed to your property so any past installed termite treatment zones can be inspected to ensure the barrier has not been breached or bridged in any way.
Active in-ground station is now locked. It will be reinspected 2-3 weeks and replenished if necessary.
This photo shows a large termite mound. These mounds can easily be treated. With termite mounds, what is seen above the ground, there can be a much larger colony below the ground.
A power shortage to this property led to the discovery of a termite mound behind the switchboard. As you can see, termites are very tricky and used the orange conduit to gain entry undetected. The only way to treat this problem was to bait the termites out using an above ground bait station. Please see picture below of the termites eating the bait.
Termites are clever, but not as clever as our termite baiting system!!
Termite prevention starts at home. We see lots of situations of wood piled against the home, close & handy for the wood fire inside, but it is also very handy for termites too!! They have undetected entry to your main investment…..your home.
Keep stored products away from your house. Note below, the termite tunnels running up the slab edge, hidden behind the wood heap. Thankfully the owner of this home had a termite inspection completed to the house and yard and now has a termite baiting system in place.
It is recommended that you have regular termite inspections completed to your property every 12 months for peace of mind.
