Termite Removal for Suburban Australian Homes
Termites are tiny, but will cause a great deal of damage in a short amount of time that will cost you a great deal of money, if not treated and removed by a trained professional. Get the best advice on termite removal from the experts who have various options that they can offer to discuss with you to ensure you have all of the options.
What’s involved in termite removal?
There are several techniques available to remove a termite invasion in your home. First of all the type (species) of termite needs to be identified and their central location and the depth of the invasion will determine the technique best fitted for your particular situation. Termites are tiny and are rarely seen with the naked eye, as they dine on wood from the inside out.
Subterranean termites are usually the species that get into your home via a tunnel that they built under the earth. They travel (through these homemade tunnels) from your home to theirs (known as colonies). Colonies are located away from your home, so a complete removal requires more than a lethal spray in a central location. A termite inspection will also make it a priority to find and kill the colony of it.
How is this accomplished?
Bait boxes are used to attract the termites and then dusting the area with a product that will not kill it immediately – it is designed so that the termites will bring the poison back to colony.
This technique has been proven to be highly effective, because of the grooming habits of termites, and the fact that when the termites that are initially infected begin to die, the remaining termites eat them, and in turn digest the poison themselves.
In conjunction with this strategy, a barrier of chemicals is placed in the soil surrounding your home. This chemical is not detected by termites, so instead of avoiding it, they walk through the poison and once again carry it back to their colony.
Can termite removal be done by the home owner?
It is not recommended that you undertake this task on your own, termite removal should always be done by a trained professional. Not only are termites a challenge to be located, but some of the chemicals used by pest controllers can only be used by a pest controller that is properly licensed in the field and also carries termite inspection tools.
