Recommendations for treatment will depend upon a variety of factors including the type of building construction, routes of potential or actual termite ingress, accessibility and the home owner’s financial considerations.
Full Timber Pest Inspections should accompany all treatment methods to accurately appraise these factors and determine the current and ongoing risk status of the property.
Chemical Termite Treatments
Localised treatments can be used to halt termite activity and deter further ingress to the treated area but won’t prevent termites from finding an alternative route through untreated areas.
Full Perimeter Treatments offer the best protection from termite ingress as they provide a continuous barrier around the whole building.
Two types of chemical can be used:
These are easily detected and strongly avoided by termites, providing good protection for treated areas. If access prevents some areas being treated, or if treated areas are later compromised, termites can recognise the gaps and gain ingress through them.
Bifenthrin is the most commonly used repellent which has a residual life of up to 5 years.
Non Repellent chemicals
These are not detected by termites. As they don’t avoid the chemical, they will pass through and die from contact with it. Individual termites exposed to the chemical will also pass on the chemical to other members of the colony and cause a compounding effect.
As termites don’t detect non repellents, they don’t recognise any difference between treated and untreated areas so ingress through possible gaps is far less likely.
Fipronil is the most commonly used Non repellent which has a residual life of up to 8 years.
Termite Interception and Baiting Systems
Above Ground systems are used to eliminate termites from buildings by placing stations on termite activity to achieve feeding on the bait matrix instead of the timber they have been eating. Worker termites then feed other members of the colony with the bait and a compounding effect is achieved.
The entire colony (nest) can be eliminated this way, even when the location of the colony is unknown. Monitoring and assessment is maintained so that stations can be added, re baited or moved in response to observed termite activity.
In Ground systems are used in a similar way but are installed around properties to provide early detection of termites. They are particularly useful when building designs prevent effective perimeter barriers as they can intercept termites before the perimeter is breached.
