Termite Management

It is estimated that one in five Australian homes has been treated for termites at some stage in its life and this rate is high in Queensland due to the hot moist climate. 80% of Australian home are at risk of termite attack. On average, termites live in every 3rd property.More than 150,000 homes are damaged by termites each year.

Our baiting service offers you the flexibility of purchasing your own self checking stations which we can install but you have the option to check them yourself and contacting our office when activity noted. Alternatively we can install and monitor on a 3 monthly inspection program for a contracted 12 month period.

Termites are subterranean (under ground) and detection of termite activity is sometimes difficult to see and require and professional to firstly, determine the presence of termites on the property. Secondly, identify elements of the building structure in terms of potential susceptibility to future termite activity and/or physical conditions conducive to termite activity that can be rectified to reduce the risk of termite activity and/or damage.

This integrated Pest Management approach will aid in the long-term management of termite activity while also reducing a heavy reliance of high volume chemicals on the property. (this said, sometimes a liquid termiticide treatment is the only protection for some structures).

Using our experience and wide range of termite management systems at our disposal we can advise on the right system for your property and building type, budget, preferred reduced reliance on chemicals due to immediate delicate ecosystem, health issues, etc…

A small range of our Integrated Termite Pest management services include; install termite baiting and monitoring systems, improve internal inspection access (walls vents, traps, doors, etc..), Chemical reticulation systems, treated zone/s, Homeguard termite membrane/s, Term-seal or Protectacoate (cracks, expansion joint/s, saw cuts, etc…), on-going termite inspections, penetration protection and collars, direct nest injection etc…

Due to the ever changing regulations, standards, building codes, licensing requirements, technology, etc… you can be confident in the knowledge that the technicians and staff at Organic Pest Control are always updating knowledge through on-going courses to adapt and strive for more environmentally friendly and safer treatments for the long term control of termite activity now and into the future.

Here at Organic Pest Control, we firmly believe, that being proactive about termite management is the best way to protect your home.

 


Termite Baiting + Monitoring Stations

Termite baiting and monitoring stations are both an effective and environmentally friendly way of initially detecting, then treating (by way of consuming the bait) termite activity entering your property. They are an ideal way of monitoring your property for the presence of termites before there is any visible signs of termite activity and/or damage.

We offer a choice of stations and baits to cater to any budget, property, building, location, sensitivity, etc… We can offer complete systems around the perimeter of the house, or we can install a single station. These are normally installed to areas of known termite activity or to an area that you want to monitor for whatever reason. (adjacent bushland, known areas of activity, neighbouring property overgrown, arboreal nests visible, obvious termite activity/damage, area is historically active, etc…)

 



They are ideal to monitor activity in areas that are potentially susceptible to termite activity such as, fence-lines, ornamental tree/s, retaining walls, common areas and gardens, areas of high soil moisture, tree stumps, trees, outbuildings, sheds, garages and of course houses. We can also install the bait into concrete areas by core drilling a circular hole to install the bait matrix to potentially all areas.

Our baiting service offers you the flexibility of purchasing your own self checking stations which we can install but you have the option to check them yourself and contacting our office when activity noted. Alternatively we can install and monitor on a 3 monthly inspection program for a contracted 12 month period.

Termite baiting and monitoring stations compliment a termite treated in terms of the treated zone directly protect the building structure but strategically placed stations (property boundary and known areas of activity/damage, stumps, overgrown gardens, etc…) can detect and eradicate termite activity remotely, both taking pressure off the treated zone and also ready for the next round of termite activity. Either way, it is an ideal way of managing termite activity entering your property and potentially your home.


Organic Pest Control has been baiting for over 20 years and has seen first-hand the results from termite baiting and monitoring stations. (especially with the new age always active baits) The bait matrix has changed the way we bait termites and moving forward will only get better. In the past I have had customers use full toilet rolls, garden stakes, timber studs, broccoli boxes, pallets, boxes, etc.. to aggregate termites to an area and then gently treat (dust) as many termites as possible and through their transfer effect, (ie, feeding, grooming, cannibalism, direct contact, etc…) contaminate the colony causing colony eradication.

Baiting is a relatively old form of treatment, but effective. If you would like to consider baiting then please contact our office for further information.
