Protecting your home or business from termites is essential to avoid costly repairs and structural damage.
At Termite Specialist, we provide a range of termite protection methods to suit your needs and budget.
Common termite protection methods
Termite Dusting/Foams are a popular method of termite protection that involves applying a dust or foam product directly into termite activity areas. The dust or foam is designed to penetrate deep into the termite tunnels, killing the termites on contact. This method is ideal for treating localized termite infestations, and the application process is quick and easy.
Chemical soil treatments
Chemical soil treatments (often referred to as termite barriers) involve applying a liquid termiticide to the soil around your property. The termiticide forms a barrier that termites cannot penetrate, preventing them from entering your home or business. This method is long-lasting and can provide protection for several years. It is also effective in killing termites that come into contact with the treated soil.
Termite baiting is a method of termite protection that involves placing bait stations directly where termites are currently. The bait stations contain a material that is attractive to termites, typically a cellulose matrix. Once termites start feeding on the bait, they will carry it back to the nest, where it will be shared with other termites. Over time, the bait will reduce the termite population until the nest is completely eliminated.
Physical barriers involve the installation of a physical barrier around your property to prevent termites from entering. Examples of physical barriers include stainless steel mesh, termite shields, and stump caps. These barriers can be installed during construction or sometimes retrofitted to existing properties.
Termite Monitors are non-invasive, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly termite protection systems that detect the presence of termites in the vicinity of your property. They work by luring termites to a monitor station that contains wood or other cellulose material, which they feed on. Once termites have been detected, we can take appropriate action to eliminate them before they cause damage to your home.
