Termite Prevention, Geelong
Pre-construction termite prevention
Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control offers pre and post-construction termite treatments and uses the most environmentally-friendly pest control products available today.
Fortunately, there is a lot that can be done to prevent termite infestation. The process begins even before a builder starts to work on a house. The ground at a building site can be treated with a substance that kills or repels termites, and usually offers protection from termites for many years. Pre-construction termite protection can be achieved using either a chemical treatment or a physical barrier, and all treatments are carried out adhering to the current Australian Standard 3660.
Biflex AquaMax is the first professional-strength, multi-insecticide and has a unique water-based formation that is non-staining, odourless, non-sensitising and non-allergenic, giving both the user and the customer comfort without sacrificing efficacy or longevity. It repels termites for a minimum of 10 years.
Post-construction termite treatments
For existing homes, Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control uses two approaches. The decision to use one approach over the other depends upon the structure of the home, and whether the building has termites already present.
Premise SC200 Termiticide is a soil-applied liquid termiticide providing long-term protection for your home. The termiticide provides an effective and reliable treated zone, killing termites rather than just repelling them.
With no odour, Premise SC200 Termiticide:
- Is safe for you and your home
- Has been proven effective and reliable with more than a million homes treated nation-wide
- Provides long-term protection of your home.
Interception and baiting system
Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control uses the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System – the only baiting system that creates a complete termite interception zone around your home and is the world’s number one termite protection system.
Exterra in-ground stations are placed around you property, in the ground or under the concrete to intercept termites. Once intercepted, Requiem termite bait is added without disturbing the termites. Requiem bait is highly palatable to termites, and they readily consume it in preference to timber. The bait is also non-toxic to you and your pets.
The termites feed on the bait and take it back to the colony. There it is fed slowly throughout the entire colony, ensuring its elimination.
Once the colony is eliminated, any remaining bait is removed. Fresh interceptors are placed into the in-ground stations. To protect your home against the constant threat from new termite colonies or other established colonies, the Exterra system works on an ongoing process of monitoring, baiting and eliminating, providing you with peace of mind.
