Termite Inspection Process
A termite inspection in Shellharbour is the most important part of any termite management program. When we perform a termite inspection, all accessible areas of the building including surrounding gardens are checked for termite activity and damage. We are looking for any possible risk factors which may increase the chance of termites attacking your home. These risk factors include things like previous termite activity, damage to the building and conducive items such as rotting timbers.
A Termite Inspection in Shellharbour normally takes between 1.5hrs to 2hrs.
Once we have finished our inspection, we will determine what methods of control might be needed in order prevent any future infestation. The customer will receive a detailed report of his findings and recommendations.
The use of thermal imaging devices allows us to pick up changes in surface temperature which can expose an area of termite activity as well as water leaks, cold spots and also ventilation issues.
Nevertheless, it is important to remember that thermal imaging is not always accurate and can also give false readings. For example if the ambient temperature of the wall is greater than 23 degrees Celsius, the termite activity may not be detected. Another example is reflection from high gloss tiles.
Termite Treatments in Shellharbour
Before any termite treatment in Shellharbour can begin, a full termite inspection must be carried out by an experienced technician. The inspection is required because there may be other areas in the building that are also infested with termites and if these are not treated, then a full eradication is unlikely.
Termite Treatment Process
There are two types of termite treatments available for the Shellharbour area: Prevention and Eradication. A preventative treatment prevents termites entering the home by creating a barrier which kills them as they come into contact with it. This involves digging a trench around the perimeter of the house, the sub-floor, around walls and piers. A chemical is poured into the trench and the soil is placed back. Concrete slabs, paths and driveways are also drilled and the chemical is injected into each hole with an average house requiring around 450lts of chemical to be used.
Termite Infestation Treatment
A termite treatment to an infested home always consists of two parts. To prevent further damage to the building, a chemical is applied directly to the termites and this is considered the first part of the treatment. Once the first part of the treatment is completed the installation of a chemical barrier or monitoring stations which are placed around the structure as described above. This part of the treatment is to eradicate any termites attempting to re-enter the home. Only a qualified and experienced Technician can tell you which termite treatment is suitable in Shellharbour.
