Termite Control Overview
There are two different termite control methods. Soil barrier treatment where the perimeter of the foundations of a house is treated by chemicals. Termite baiting system where termite feeding habits are exploited. The workers share what they have found with the other colony members. When offered bait, workers inadvertently pass it to the rest of the colony, thereby killing them.
Inappropriate choice of a termite control method will not only be ineffective but most likely result in termites changing location within your house. If that happens termites are likely to remain out of sight, continue causing damage until the problem becomes visible and costly to rectify.
However, before any treatment is undertaken it is crucial to carry out a full termite inspection. This is because successful termite control is dependent on several very important factors:
• Proper identification of the termite specie that is causing the infestation.
• Species-specific treatment, certain termite control methods and products are not equally effective on all termite species.
• Appropriate choice of treatment type, according to environmental and structural conditions.
• Complete eradication of colonies with more than one nest.
