Professional Termite Treatment

With colonies that range in size from a few hundred individuals to enormous societies with over a million, termites are perhaps one of the most successful groups of insects on Earth. They’ve colonized most landmasses except Antarctica and their queens can live up to 50 years which is the longest known lifespan of any insect.

The issue with these insects is that they are detritivores or detritus feeders. This means that they feed on dead plants and trees, including the wood that most homes and businesses are made of (including yours). These components attract those insects that are looking for the nutrients in cellulose, an organic fibre found in wood and plant matter. While some prefer dry wood and others prefer damp materials, the best cure in any case is to prevent them from getting into your residence in the first place!

We’re all about helping homeowners stave off these insects and treating any termite infestations that might make their way past your existing perimeter. We’re tops when it comes to aggressive, effective termite treatments with over 30 years of experience and options that are kid and pet safe.

Available treatment types

There are two main kinds of termite treatment:

  • Sprays that kill on contact
  • Baits that help infiltrate larger nests.

Barriers, designed to prevent an infestation in the first place, can also be used as a component of the remediation.

The type of protection you’ll need will depend on the state of your home along with how bad an infestation is. For example, if the termites have already made their move, you’ll want a spray treatment to kill the pests while installing a barrier to prevent future incursions. Let’s take a closer look at each.

Termiticides

Usually applied in a liquid spray form, termiticide treatments are designed to kill off any termites on contact. Those that manage to survive will carry the poison back to the nest, where they will spread it once they die. Termiticides can also include a repellant component to help keep newly approaching these insects at bay while treatment is underway. This makes the sprayed wood unappealing, prompting the pests to move away from the structure.

Sprays that do not contain repellant are actually designed to go undetected by the these insects, who pass the poison along by contact and allow it to infect others in the nest. While all of these sprays can be effective at eradicating an existing infestation, they are not used on their own as a preventative measure.

Baits

The baits are also used to combat an infestation. The bait is actually a poison packaged in an appealing wood or cellulose compound that termites would find appealing as a food source. By consuming the bait, the poison can make its way back to the nest, similar to a spray. However, this process is often slow to act since it relies on the these insects themselves to distribute the treatment. As such, baits are often used in tandem with termiticides or other methods.

Barriers

Barriers are designed to keep them out of your Toowoomba home in the first place. As a preventative measure, these can be used along with any treatments with bait or sprays, since you’ll want to keep any new termites from slowing progress. It’s also critical to safeguarding your home moving forward.

Barriers are physically installed around the perimeter of the home, usually dug into a trench so that the insects passing through the soil en route to your structure are stopped in their tracks. The barrier contains a liquid chemical that kills the them and prevents them from moving forward. The barrier can be refilled with chemicals as needed over time, roughly every 5 years, making them a more long-lasting alternative to frequent spraying or bait that only lasts a year.

How much does the treatment cost in Toowoomba?

A few factors come into play when it comes to pricing out termite control. First, the type of treatment will dictate the cost range. From there, a service will be able to price out the total cost based on factors such as total area, type of termite, and the extent of the infestation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Toowoomba Termite Treatment

Pests will always leave tell-tale signs of their presence. For termites, this would be seeing winged insects called swarmers indoors. This usually indicates an infestation warranting treatment. People often confuse winged termites with ants, which tend to swarm at the same time of year. They have straight antennae, a uniformly thickened waist, and wings of equal size. Conversely, ants have elbowed antennae, constricted waists, and forewings that are longer than the hind wings.

A recent survey suggests that one in three homes in Queensland suffer from this type of infestation, but the actual figure for the Toowoomba region may be higher. From homes sampled in Toowoomba, 26% showed outside incidence of termites and 14.6% showed inside occurrence, with many of the high numbers attributed to older homes (aged 30+) and variations in dry and damp climates.

Treating your property could require hundreds of liters of termiticide. This is a liquid pesticide that’s injected into the ground along the foundation, beneath concrete slabs, and within foundation walls. DIY products, sold to homeowners at retail stores or bought over the internet, will seldom eradicate an existing problem.

Though termites are not harmful to humans, colonies of these notorious insects can cause billions of dollars of damage each year. They are also difficult to detect before they create structural damage to a property, causing huge financial and property loss. If you notice any signs of these insects, call the pest control professionals.

With other jobs we would even provide you with tips on how to DIY this task, with this one, it’s a straight-up no.

Eliminating these insects will require special skills. This is important as identifying critical areas where they are likely to enter and affect the structural integrity of your home or business is of top priority. Termite treatment would call for specialised equipment for the job to be done properly and protect your home.
