The world has come a long way in terms of the termite or white ant management solutions available on the market, and the success rates of such treatments. However, to utilise them effectively, one needs the skills of a specialist and many years of experience.
The results of choosing an unsuitable termite treatment for a particular situation or not performing the control program correctly can be disastrous.
Before a treatment solution is selected, an assessment must be conducted on the property to determine exactly how serious the problem is and which products or treatments would best suit the situation. A termite attack can only be successfully fought with the most appropriate treatment program.

Commonly asked termite treatment questions
What is the duration of a termite treatment?
This depends on the type of treatment recommended and chosen. A termite baiting system may take around four hours to install and then regular visits over subsequent months to monitor effectiveness.
Elimination of the attacking colony using a termite dust can take several visits over 8-10 weeks. A soil treated zone may take around a day to install and can be active for up to eight years.
How frequently must termite treatments be repeated?
Once you have a termite treatment done on your home, it is usually active for several years, depending on the specific method and formulations applied. Another variable is the residual life of the formulation in the soil, which varies according to the amount of moisture present and the type of soil substrate. However, you should have inspections performed at least once a year.
According to the Australian Standard for termite management (AS 3660), it is strongly recommended to have a property inspected for termites at least once a year or more often in high-risk areas. Having your home inspected regularly enables the early detection of termites, thereby mitigating damage to timber and the cost of repairs or replacement.
Which termite treatment should I choose?
The termite treatment implemented on your property is determined by the pest inspection that our qualified technicians conduct. Our termite specialists will ensure that the termite treatment put in place is specifically suited to your home and the environment. Our termite treatment options include Flixterm Termite Interception and Baiting System, which is an environmentally friendly termite solution that monitors, intercepts and eliminates termites.
