Tahmoor Pest Control Termite inspections
Arrange a thorough termite inspection by our accredited team of termite control specialists for your peace of mind today.
Termite inspections should be conducted at least annually, and more frequently depending on the termite species suspected, building construction type, environmental conditions, property location and geography, and history of any termite-related issues within or surrounding the property.
The results of termite inspections are delivered in a detailed written report and include as a minimum:
- Termites’ detection or non-detection
- Environmental or conducive conditions for termites
- Any termite damage found during the inspection
- All areas that had limited access or were restricted for the inspection
- Any risk factors that may increase the chances of a termite
- Recommended termite treatments
Termite control methods
Chemical termite barrier treatments
A chemical termite barrier involves applying a liquid chemical, a termiticide, to the soil, either under the concrete flooring or around the entire perimeter and foundations of the building to create a continuous and complete solid barrier.
Some chemicals are designed to kill termites and others are designed to deter and/or repel them. Engage with your termite professional about choosing the right type of termite chemical barrier for you.
Termite reticulation system
A network of underground pipes designed to distribute termiticides evenly across building foundations and around its perimeter. The reticulation system allows continued reapplication of the chemical barrier and ease of chemical top up every 3-5 years.
Above-ground monitoring and baiting
Above-ground termite monitoring involves the use of unobtrusive termite bait stations, which are placed on identified feeding sites and are then removed once the colony is controlled.
Suitable for homeowners and businesses if termites are already active within the property
- Suitable for implementation at any time
- Designed for baiting only
Termite monitoring and baiting stations
In-ground monitoring and baiting
In-ground termite stations are installed in strategically important points around your property, applied to areas at most risk of attracting termites, such as moist soil or mulch, old tree stumps, irrigation sprinkler heads and downspouts. For some devices, they are inspected regularly and when active termites are detected, a baiting program will commence. Other devices contain active baits and are inspected regularly regardless of whether there is termite activity.
Worker termites take bait – which contains termiticide – back to their nests as a food source, feeding it to and shortly collapsing the colony.
Is my property at a high, medium, or low risk for termites?
Termites are a destructive pest – they can cause major structural and costly damage to commercial buildings and homes. It’s incredibly important to have thorough termite inspections of your home and business to detect the early signs of termite activity.
