Getting the Right Termite Control in Sydney
Termites or white ants are highly destructive pests and can cause widespread damage to wooden components in a structure. Since these creatures are tiny, live in dark and humid placed and bore through walls, detection is not easy. In most instances, the termite infestation is noticed very late in the day and a lot of damage has already occurred.
Across Sydney, almost 25% of structures have been infested with termites at one point or the other. It is crucial that property owners be aware of the tell-tale signs of termite infestations. The signs that you should look out for are:
- Papery or Hollow-Sounding Wood– The termites have hollowed-out the wood
- Wall Skirting gets damaged with the Vacuum cleaner-The vacuum pressure damages the architrave/skirting board/door jamb
- Tight-Fitting Doors & Windows– When termites eat right through the wood, the muddy deposits that their excrement creates becomes a heat and moisture-trap, which causes the timber to swell and become tight-fitting
- Termite Mud– You may notice muddy, tubular deposits on the wooden elements and walls in your home
The one way to stem the spread of these pests is to get Nationwide Pest Control to carry out termite control on your property. When we handle termite control in Sydney for you, your entire property will be thoroughly inspected on an annual basis and preventive termite control will be carried out. That is also one way of nipping the problem in the bud. The recommendation is that termite inspection be carried out at least once a year. In areas that are more prone to termite infestations, the inspection can be carried out at more frequent intervals.
Range of Treatments
Nationwide Pest Control uses a number of methods for termite control in Sydney. The one/s that we use will be based on the location of the termite colonies and the severity of the problem:
- Physical Termite Barriers– These are typically used during the pre-construction phase. The installation takes place in phases, while your home/office building is under construction
- The Reticulation System– We install a wide network of underground pipes; a termite control chemical is released into these pipes which then gets evenly distributed across the building. Precise application & reapplication of this chemical ensures that your house/ office building gets long-term protection against termites
- Chemical Barriers– We apply a liquid chemical in the soil, under concrete flooring as well as along the building’s perimeter. This application can be done during the pre and post-construction phases
- Monitoring and Baiting – Termite bait stations are placed across the building periphery and are very useful in detecting any kind of termite activity. Once these have been installed on your property, we carry out regular monitoring as part of our termite control in Sydney packages
