According to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) approximately 32 percent of all houses in Australia currently have some termite activity, or about 130,000 homes per year. In other words, about one in three homes are affected by termites at the moment. This makes termite pest detection and eradication a priority for all homeowners.
Termites may build their colonies as far as 100 metres away from your structure and enter through any gaps at ground level, such as cracks in mortar joints, but more often they enter from below and are undetected until the damage is already done.
This is why annual high tech inspections by expertly trained Control Pest Management specialists will give you protection from expensive building rectification. We are equipped with the latest in termite detection tools and bring the years of experience that make us the best in the business.
Termite management strategies consist of either creating a chemical barrier between the termites and the building to be protected or eradicating the termite colony by baiting.
The choice between baiting and interception or chemical treatment can be difficult. In buildings with many expansion joins in a concrete floor, floors with split levels and other more intricate construction methods baiting quickly becomes the most logical choice. For buildings with a simple construction method it will generally be more cost effective to apply a chemical treatment while a baiting and interception system provides a better long term protection.
We will assess the construction dynamics including expansion joints, multiple levels and the connections between different building materials to determine what is optimal in your specific situation so you can be best advised.
