Termite Control

 

There are a number of different termite control methods available including Chemical or Conventional Barrier Treatments and Termite Baiting Systems.

 

Chemical Treatments, Conventional Barrier Treatments and Termite Baits are the most common procedures to control termites.

Chemical Treatments involve the drenching of soil around and underneath buildings high volumes of termiticide to establish a 'treated zone' that helps to minimise the chances of termites gaining access by travelling through the soil and up the footings.

Chemical Treatments are designed to prevent concealed entry into the building rather than kill termites and their colonies.

 

Failure to form a continuous treated zone would open gaps in the treatment and open up the possibility to termites still gaining entry.

 

Termite activity to surrounding areas such as landscaping timbers also remains a possibility. 

Conventional Chemical Treatments usually employ repellent chemicals which allow the termites to detect the treated zone and avoid the area completely. 

                                                               The more modern termiticides are non-repellent chemicals and are undetectable                                                                        which increases the chances of termites entering treated zones and becoming                                                                             contaminated - lowering the risk of termites foraging through untreated areas.

                                                                MASH Pest Solutions is an accredited user of Fipforce HP - the most advanced non-                                                                    repellent formulation in Australia.

                                                                Fipforce HP incorporates minute non-repellent particles in the soil where termites                                                                         unknowingly enter treated zones and collect product molecules which they then                                                                          distribute through the colony and begin the process of colony eradication.

Termite Baiting Systems consist of plastic stations placed approximately 3 metres around the perimeter of the building.

 

These stations are installed with an attractant to entice termites into the stations where they are then baited and left to digest the poison before they return to the main nest to spread it and eradicate the colony.

                                                          

Baiting systems can be applied to a variety of construction types and conditions, are resistant to weather as they are not affected by flooding and do not use chemicals, safe for children and pets as the bait is non-toxic and are also environmentally friendly because the bait is specially designed only for termites.
