Pre Treatment - Termite Treatment
Termite Australian Standards
•The BCA makes it a very easy exercise to find out what termite protection is in order at your home. Your builder must make sure that copies of documents outlining the termite protections is suited to your home, and this is installed to your property. This is called a ‘termite management notice. Most likely, you’ll often find one inside your electrical meter box. The Australian standard with AS 3660.1–2014 code Termite management Part 1: New building work providing tools to manage termite risks to both existing homes and new construction.
Termite Cheap Treatment
•A Cheap Termite Treatment will usually be done using cheaper generic materials that is a repellent type, and this kills on impact. These chemicals will repel (kill) Termites away from the treated area and will not take it back to the nest. Cheap repellent chemicals are not used by us, if you require a long-lasting termite control treatment we highly recommend using Termidor to get the longest lasting work backed up by the manufacturer and the support by the supplier, so that's why we only use recommended chemicals that are backed.
•Rapid is a professional termite company in Melbourne, we only use a water-based product-Termidor fipronil termite chemical. This is a non-repellent termiticide and has a transfer effect by contact through grooming and feeding. Termidor has no smell, odor or effect on soil micro-organisms, earth worms and plants, and has a very long residual against both subterranean termites and dry wood termites. Termidor is a non-repellent, “transfer poison”. It is unnoticeable to termites once it has been put to the ground. Termites will actually unseeingly enter the treated area, where the Termidor course bind to their cuticle. Once this has come into sight, it is only a matter of time before they perish. And time is not on their side. Termidor’s unique Transfer Effect™ provides that the Termidor is passed from one termite to the next and as an outcome, even termites that have not straightly come into touch with the treated area can pick up a poisonous dose.
Termite Chemical Depth
•The termite chemical used must penetrate in the soil around your home to a depth of at least 110mm. To achieve this, the termite guy will dig a small trench around the house. If the chemical doesn't go down all the way, the chemical will not be productive and give you protection from termites that come beneath the ground. We dig a trench around the house evenly at the correct depth, so the chemical could work at full capacity of strength. Treated areas are there to protect both new and existing structures may be installed using a mixture of classical spraying and digging and termite reticulation systems. Spray tools should be calibrated to deliver a continuous-pressure high bulk spray. It is approved the minimum width of any treated soil treated area is 82 mm.
Termite Chemicals Types
•Termite chemicals types can vary in cost and to form an effective termite barrier you have to use 5 liters to every 1 L/M (e.g. the average small house treatment uses 400-500 litres of termite chemical). While other termite companies may apply only 4 litres of chemical per metre (L/M), we use approx 10 litres of per (L/M)). With Rapid you can be sure you're 100% an effective termite barrier treatment of your home. There are 4 types of approved termiticides available for this type of protection is Fipronil, Bifenthrin, Chlorpyrifos and Imidacloprid. They all work unlike to the other, have many unequal brand names associated to them. They also have different life spans, ranging from 2,6,8 and upto 10 years.
•Some termite colony can be repelled easily before the termites enter your home. However, those that are already in between the walls often try to spread through out the house and wall cavity. After applying a liquid foam, termites that are already spread into the cavity wall will die from dehydration due to lack of moisture and will take it back to the colony, and after that we do a minor treatment outside.
Termite Control Cost
•Most homeowners pay $880 for the average termite treatment or typically $220 and $880 cost. Larger infestations or difficult system, like extermination with a barrier, could cost $1,200 to $3,500 or 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.
Termite Control Methods
•There is only a few different termite control options you can do, one is a full soil treatment to AS3660 in the ground at 300mm down and a full perimeter of your home is treated with a long-lasting termiticide Termidor. This kills the termites if they attack and approach your home. The other option is to use termite bait stations that are always active, and this will take it back to the nest and kill the queen.
Termite Do Die On Their Own
•Termites need moisture to last and will die if naked to any light or accessible air for a more short period of time. Their tunnels shelter them from the aspect. Habitat: Normally they live in the ground, but can be raised from ground level as sufficient moisture is current. They need to be in a damp ground, rather in blunt contact with timber, in line to remain.
Termites How Bad Are They
•Termites, how bad they are, is that they can eat about half a kilo of wood each day. It may not seem like a lot, but when they are in your home, you can be in big trouble. The fact is that termites continue invisible when they attack your home. By the time you finally discover them, the termite damage has already been done, and the extensive damage will cost your you more than expected.

If you find live or dead termites in your home disregarding of getting a chemical treatment done soon, it is most likely because they found a gap between chemical treatment, but that is very unlikely to happen.

The subfloor is usually made of yellow tongue or just tassie oak boards and this is called termite food. The floor joists support the subfloor and the subfloor are connected to the top-floorboards. With different approaches can be carried out for the best termite protection can be sprayed, and we need to have at least 400 mm clearance to complete the job.

Termite Worst Suburbs
•The worst suburbs in Melbourne for termite zones are in areas where the ground holds a lot of water and moisture in the ground, and most of all the old suburbs where there is a lot of big gum trees 50-meter radius from your home.

Most inner suburbs are affected and here are just a few examples of the temite hot spots, Caulfield, East Malvern, Footscray, Hoppers Crossing, Mernda, Newport, Parkdale, Port Melbourne, Truganina, Williamstown, Werribee, Yarraville and the neighboring suburbs are the termite hot spots in Melbourne.
Termite What We Do
•As a termite company in Melbourne, we carry out a full inspection before we start. When we locate the termite infestation, and then we will inject the walls with termite foam and then allow 2 – 4 weeks for the queen to die. After a few weeks we will drill holes around the perimeter, dig trenches and then inject and spray around the house for a prevention spray, so the termites do not enter back into the house, and this generally last 8 years with TERMIDOR which is known to be the best on the market AS3660.
