Termites Chemical & Physical
Baiting & Monitoring Stations
•Termite baiting stations are put in below ground by ‘appealing’ termites to feed on Trelona bait cartridge (TBC) with the inclusion of the novel active ingredient. The bait stations are placed close by with a non-toxic termite bait until termite activity is confirmed. Termites will feed on the bait and act normally for days after use, then the termites will take the bait back to the nest where it is introduced to the queen.
Pre Termite Treatment
•Pre-treat to a home is a termiticide treatment to prevent active termites from entering between the house slab and the internal walls and into the home. It also averts active workings getting into the bottom plate of the cavity wall. The treatment is applied next to the perimeter of the home, making sure termites don’t get into any hidden areas. Part B treatment is applied to prevent termite activity to acquire access when building a new house or renovation. It is a liquid termiticide treatment around the perimeter of a house or home next to an area where visual inspection cannot be seen with the naked eye, or you can spray the footings of the house. We can attempt to provide this treatment at the same time for part A AS3660.1 For part b is a barrier as well and this must be done after the slab has been finished. Before any compliance certificate can be issued, a termite sticker needs to be installed in the meter box for the building surveyor to pass it.
Physical & Chemical Barriers
•Chemical barriers may be used either by spraying under and around a house or by using a reticulation system around a concrete slab, this can be part a and part b As3660. The chemical spray is applied in two parts: Part A and Part B AS 3660. The Part A treatment is completed before the slab pour. Part B application is done around the perimeter when the concrete is done with a reticulation system. A durable notice sticker is then permanently installed to the electrical box, we normally call it the meter box, to recommend all homeowners and inspectors of the system of installation and this can be called termite management. Physical barriers may be split into two categories: those for those who build with a footing system and another option is the concrete slab. For all houses built on stumps or a footing system, the only form of barrier is ant caps or termite shields. This is a thin metal shield placed on top of brick pierce and foundation walls or concrete stumps. For slab-on-ground construction, part collars need to be installed. The slab is considered a termite barrier. All penetrations (pipes) through the slab must have a collar fixed in and around the slab. On the edge of the slab, before the frame goes up, a plastic termite barrier must be installed underneath the bottom plate.
Termite Control Information
•There are many ways of getting rid of termites? And the most common way is to use a chemical treatment around the perimeter of your home, which is to protect your home from termites for 8 years from entering back in your house in Melbourne. (1) Firstly we find where the termite nest is located or where the damage is done. (2) Then we inject foam in the walls and then wait a few weeks, so it can go back and kill the queen. (3) Last of all we drill and inject Termidor around the perimeter of the house, this is a prevention that when the termites come back, they get in contact with the poison, and they take it back to the queen, and it then dies and kills the lot off.
Termite Part A & B
•A Termite Barrier is a pre-construction physical termite barrier that is to protect homes from termites in Melbourne part a. This is installed in your home during the pre-construction process and is formed to stop termites from coming into your home via buried tunnels at the start of the build. These are used in homes that don't have a physical termite blanket. This involves laying a chemical pipe in the soil around the outside of the house (under the paving or garden). The pipe has dumpers and when bifenthrin is pumped through the hose the chemical is divided into the ground. The barrier is in the soil and becomes an obstacle for termites and that is called a barrier which can be part b. .
•Most homeowners pay $880 approx for basic termite treatment or typically $330 to $880 cost. Larger infestations or difficult systems, like extermination with a barrier, could cost $1,200 to 3,500 or maybe more. Every termite treatment cost varies in price, depending on the size of the home and the land and how many chemicals would go into the treatment, that's how we work out the termite cost in Melbourne.
Termite Treatment & Protection
•After a long cold winter rain in Melbourne, spring can’t come soon enough for many of us. Before you know it, daylight is here on our back door, flowers will start blooming and children will be playing a lot more outdoors in the park. But, as the weather gets a little warmer, people may also start to see termite signs that spring has sprung up in the presence of flying termites and swarmers.
•Spring is the termite of the season as swarmers emerge to mate and establish new colonies up your walls, which often popped up as unwanted guests. Termites can eat out a wall from under their owner's eyes, often without them even knowing how much termite damage have they done. They can chew through timber floorboards and even plaster and can damage the structural timber of a home within several months depending on the type of damage. In truth termites cause $100 billion worth of damage yearly.
How To Get Rid Of Termites
•Luckily, there are many steps you can take to help prevent termites from infesting your home. Here are a few tips to protect the best investment of your life:
1 Stop or reduce moisture in and around the house, which termites need to thrive on to survive.
2 Repair leaking taps, water pipes, and exterior air-con units.
3 Repair gutters, eaves, and rotted roof areas.
4 Replace weatherboard and broken mortar around footing foundation and windows sills.
5 Divert water into drains from the house properly flowing threw downpipes and gutters.
6 Routinely inspect the foundation of a home for signs of mud trails (used by termites to reach up your cavity walls), uneven doors or bubbling paint, and timber architrave that sounds hollow when hit on.
7 Monitor all exterior areas outside, including timber windows, door frames, and skirting boards for any different changes that have appeared.
8 Maintain the gap between the foundation of your home that appears to change.
9 Consider a pest inspector as a professional opinion. Termite damage is not covered by homeowners' insurance cover.
10 Raise firewood off the ground and at least 10 meters away from the house.
•Termites cannot be controlled without helping yourself. If you suspect a termite problem has come up, contact a licensed pest controller ASAP to determine where the problem has come up and receive a quote for an appropriate cost of a pre-treatment. To find a small business, a qualified pest controller to do the job.
•One of the everyday normal house pests that any homeowner should know about is termites. They are small white ants, usually about the size of half a matchstick long which like cool and moist places to breed in walls, trees, and dark places. They feast on wood, timber fences, timber floors, and timber walls. Furthermore, they cannot eat the Heartwood, mostly the inner part of the tree.
•Termite treatment and termite protection jobs are done by rapid pest control Melbourne. We do lots of different termite work from a large termite certificate of compliance protection AS3660.1 2014 to a small termite treatment AS3660.2 2000. All termite certificates are given after the work has been completed.
