Termite Inspections And Termite Treatments

Some suburbs are more prevalent to termite attack and regular termite inspections are the only way to ensure that they have not set up residence in your home.
These small creatures can cause expensive damage to a home and in some cases, the property cannot repaired and the only option is to demolish and rebuild.

Termite Control And Treatment

Termites are relentless creatures that can cause severe damage without being detected. These tiny creatures are not always seen and can be doing irreparable damage without you knowing. They work tirelessly, traveling up to 100m from their nest to feed their queen. ​It’s crucial to be aware of these key indicators of a termite infestation:.

  • Mud Trails
  • Soft floorboards/architraves
  • Consistent power shortages
  • Cracked paint/plaster
  • Swarm of flying insects outdoors
  • Clicking sounds coming from the walls

At So Pest Off, we specialise in termite treatment and pest control to help protect your home.
Our annual termite inspections and prevention plans are designed to keep your biggest asset safe. As an accredited Termidor provider, we only use the best products to ensure effective protection.

What Do Termites Look Like?

The termite that causes 70% of termite damage to homes is the Coptotermes acinaciformis species and they are extensive foragers and will travel up to 50 meters from their nest in search of food.
Termites, including Coptotermes, rely heavily on chemical signals called pheromones for communication and they use chemical signals to communicate and coordinate their activities, including marking trails to food sources.
Coptotermes acinaciformis do not indiscriminate in its feeding. They primarily feed on cellulose-rich materials, particularly various types of wood. They have been observed consuming both softwoods like radiata pine and hardwoods like ash and Tasmanian oak.

The most obvious sign of termite infestation is the presence of mud trails on the exterior walls of your home. If you notice small piles or tubes of “Mud or Dirt” on any part of your walls that is above the ground, then get it inspected – DO NOT DISTURB it.
The mud trails act as a protected tunnel that allows them to travel from the outside to the inside of your home. It will lead to a small crack, gap, or a weep hole that has direct access into the house.

The most common areas to find mud trails are usually around the walls edge, coming up from the ground around the lower edges of the brickwork. Another common area to see them is under the house on concrete stumps or uprights.If you find these mud tubes inside your home, then there is a termite infestation which requires immediate actioning.

TERMIDOR

We use Termidor, a highly effective termite control solution. Unlike older style chemicals that termites can detect and avoid, Termidor remains undetectable, ensuring that termites pass through it and ultimately perish. It is highly effective in eliminating termite colonies, as it can be passed on from termite to termite through contact and ingestion.

Termites can detect older chemicals in the soil, and in turn can avoid them. Termites can’t sense Termidor, which means they will continue to pass through the chemicals, killing them through contact & ingestion. Termites are social insects that live together in large colonies and feed and groom each other. So termites that have come into contact with Termidor soon pass it on to others. Even those secondarily affected termites can also pass Termidor on through feeding or contact.

$2 Million Dollar WARRANTY

The Termidor Assurance Warranty is unique. It covers your home for structural damage up to $2 million. It also guarantees that your home has been treated by an accredited Termidor applicator using genuine Termidor – not one of the many inferior copies. All you have to do is speak to your accredited pest controller who will start the warranty process.

Trelona® ATBS and Termidor® – Combined protection, unmatched piece of mind

The unique advantage of Trelona® ATBS is that it can be used in combination with Termidor® Residual termiticide and insecticide and Termidor® HE high-efficiency termiticide.

Termidor® has been the most trusted name in termite control since 2002 and has been the benchmark for termiticides in the Australian market. This trusted technology can now be combined with the most advanced baiting system available.

Due to termite risk or construction design, a combined treatment may provide the most adequate and thorough protection for your home. Where required or in instances where additional “piece of mind” is desired, your pest management professional may design a treatment plan combining the power of these two trusted technologies
