Finding out your home is infested with termites is enough of a concern, but what about the actual treatment once the termites have been detected?
Will your home be immersed in a toxic cloud of chemicals that takes days to dissipate, meaning you and your family have to find alternative accommodation? What about when you return home? Will your family and pets be affected by residual chemicals for the next few months? Will the termite treatment be worse than the termite problem you started with?
Targeting the Termites
Once you’ve had a professional termite inspection using the latest in pest control technology such as thermal cameras and moisture meters, and termites have been detected, it’s time to target the termites where they live, not in your living areas. Termites are very rarely seen and prefer to hide away in walls, under floors and in roof cavities so it’s the areas where they are a problem that are treated, not the entire house. Often, the main infestation is still confined to outside, so the area is secured and treated to prevent further spread of the termites.
Tailored Termite Control
Every home is different, and every termite problem is different, so tailoring the treatments to your unique circumstances is the best solution. A professional and reputable pest control company will safely eradicate your termite infestation and leave the area in the same, or better, condition than before. If, by chance, the best treatment for your problem involves something that could harm your pets, your pest control expert will provide all the information you need to keep them safe from harm.
Aftercare and Preventative Care
For your peace of mind, and to ensure re-infestation doesn’t happen, you’ll need some follow-up inspections and possibly a regular scheduled service if you’re in a high risk area or you had a particularly nasty infestation to start with. A range of preventative solutions are available such as termite barriers and environmentally friendly bait stations like Sentricon AlwaysActive or Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System to keep termites under control, and annual inspections are recommended.
