We use Termatrac Microwave RADAR and THERMAL IMAGING to “look” inside your walls and roof areas.
Visual Inspections on their own, are NOT good enough. Make sure you get your Annual Termite Inspection with TERMATRAC RADAR.
Broadly speaking there are two types of termite managements systems that are used to protect existing buildings from termites
- Liquid soil treatments – liquid insecticide is pumped into the ground around the property creating a treated zone which either repels or kills the termites
- Termite baiting systems – plastic bait stations containing wood are placed in the ground around the property. Any termites in the area will start feeding on the wood, when they do, the pest manager adds a termite bait which the termites take back to the nest, killing the colony.
Termite baiting systems have two key advantages over liquid soil treatments
- Liquid soil treatments are not suitable for every property due to the construction type or soil properties
- Baiting systems are the safer, environmentally friendly way to eliminate termites as there is no need to pump large amounts of insecticide into the soil
