Pest Control - Termites
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 close with a non-toxic termite bait until termite activity is confirmed. Termites will feed on the bait and act normal 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. Chemical spray are 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 a termite management. Physical barriers may be split into two categories: those for who build with on a footing system and other 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. In 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 permiter 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 the 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 a 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 a basic termite treatment or typically $330 to $880 cost. Larger infestations or difficult system, like extermination with a barrier, could cost $1,200 to 3,500 or maybe more. Every termite treatment cost vary 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 costing 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 get a little warmer, people may also start to see a termite signs that spring has sprung up of the presence of flying termites and swarmers.
•Spring is the termite of season as swarmers emerge to mate and establish new colonies up your walls, which often popped up as unwanted guests. Termites can literally eat out a wall from under its owners eyes, often without them even knowing how much termite damage have they done. They have the capacity to chew through timber floor boards and even plaster and can damage the structural timber of a home within several months depending on the type of damage. In truth is, termites cause $100 billion worth of damage yearly.
