Why is a Termite Inspection in Wollongong so Important?
One of the best preventative measures that you can take for your home is to schedule regular termite inspections in Wollongong; regular termite inspections can catch an infestation in its infantile stages and allow for the quick elimination of these small insects that can cause major structural damages.
It is important for homeowners to realize that termites are timber-devouring and wood-destroying insects. These silent destroyers are capable of damaging the structural supports of the home, compromising the physical integrity of such. Some signs of termites in the home may include sagging floors, pinpoint holes in drywall, bubbling paint, damaged and crumbling wood trim and loose tiles.
The Process of a Termite Inspection in Wollongong
A termite inspection in Wollongong, NSW 2500 is the first important part of any termite control program. When we begin a termite inspection, we try to perform a thorough inspection. During the inspection, we check all areas of the building including the surrounding gardens for termite activity and damage. We look for any possible risk factors that may cause termites to attack your home. These risk factors include things like previous termite activity, moisture and other attractants such as rotting timbers.
A Termite Inspection in Wollongong will take between 1.5hrs to 2hrs.
After finishing the inspection, we will advise methods of control to avoid any future attack. The client will get a complete report of his findings and guidance.
Termite Treatments Wollongong
So before any termite treatment in Wollongong can begin, a full termite inspection must be carried out by a trained technician. The inspection is essential, as there may be other areas in the building that are also infested with termites. Treatment of your home is essential otherwise full eradication is unlikely.
Termite Treatments are complex, so it may take months to complete. The technician will make recommendations and they should be followed perfectly, otherwise, the eradication is highly unlikely.
Treatments must not be tampered with and are only carried out by experienced termite technicians. The cost for a termite chemical barrier averages $1800 and will last between 3 to 5 years. This time depend on environmental factors and soil types.
The Process of a Termite Treatment in Wollongong
There are two types of termite treatments available for the Wollongong area: Prevention and Eradication. A preventative treatment stops 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. The chemicals are poured into the trench and the soil is placed back. We inject the chemical into concrete slabs, pathways and driveways. On average, each home will have over 450 litres of chemicals injected.
Termite Infestation Treatment
A termite treatment to an infested home always consists of two parts. The first part of the actual treatment, for the purpose of avoiding further damage to the building; a chemical is applied directly to the termites. The second part includes creating the chemical barrier or monitoring stations around the house as described above. This part of the treatment is to destroy any termites trying to re-enter the home. The trained technician advises you which termite treatment is suitable in Wollongong.

Pest Control Hints and Tips
Pests will often enter indoors and homeowners will try and control the problem on their own, but the truth is that most pests are better left to professionals. After all, pest professionals have the knowledge, tools and training to safely and properly eliminate pest infestations.
However, there is a range of pest prevention tips for homeowners. These tips can reduce the likelihood of unwanted pests all year round, at little to no cost at all. Make sure you check out our blog for some handy hints and tips with Pest Control.
Common Pest Control Pests
Proven Pest Control technicians are trained to help manage your cockroach issues. Keeping cockroaches out of your home or building is an ongoing process, not a one-time treatment. Proven Pest Control will provide the correct pest control solution to keep cockroaches out of your home or business.
People will often blame a cockroach problem on poor housekeeping. While kitchens, cleaning bins and floors can be useful, it is far more important to reduce food sources used by cockroaches. Cockroaches will hitch a ride on infested items brought inside or enter through cracks in the home’s exterior.
Pest dogs and cats are the main cause for a flea infestation. The flea attaches itself to the animal when, and then it will infest the pet’s fur and the places it sleeps. Flea pest control for both the home and yard normally takes two treatments. Sometimes, fleas may become a problem inside the home when the host they previously fed on is no longer there. The flea then focuses their feeding activity on other hosts that live in the home.
An important aspect of flea treatment is the time and effort it takes to fully eradicate the issue. Dealing with the flea infestation requires treating infected animals, cleaning infested areas, and taking preventative measures to keep the fleas from coming back.
Flies can enter a home through different methods. The insects can drift in through open windows and doors or enter houses on food products (fruit flies). They may also be attracted to and breed in the organic matter in your drains. Flies can also infest dead animals in walls, roof voids, or other hidden places inside your home.
Our pest control technicians are trained to help manage flies and similar pests. Since every home and business is different, the technician will design a unique pest control plan for your situation. Our specialist can provide the right solution to keep flies out of your home, restaurant or office.
Rats and Mice
Rats and mice are warm-blooded mammals that are found throughout the world. They have oversized front teeth for gnawing and back teeth, which are adapted for chewing. They chew on a variety of items available to them and cause great damage in and around homes. In addition to being tough to control, rats and mice carry diseases and contaminate food with waste, fur, and saliva.
It is a fact that mice can contaminate around 10 times the amount of food they eat. If you find a rat or mouse inside your home, it is best to contact a professional pest controller to remove and advise ways to prevent further infestations. The presence of one rat or mouse within a home can signal an infestation.
Ants come in sorts of shapes and sizes with a different method of pest control needed. The type of pest control required will depend on their food preference, which may be either oil, protein or sugar. There will be three different colony castes; queens, workers or males. Queens are fertile females that lay all the eggs in a colony. Worker ants are wingless females that forage for food, feed the larvae, maintain the nest, defend the colony, but do not reproduce. Male ants are winged and their only job is to mate with the queens during the swarming period. Poor sanitation is the primary cause of ant infestations in homes and businesses.
Leaving dirty dishes in the sink, food residue on countertops, crumbs on the floor and trash in the bin for long periods, provide food sources for ants. What starts with a few scavengers entering the home can become a major infestation if ants establish colonies in lawns, walls, or under structures.
Termites that cause damage to Australian homes are subterranean termites.
Subterranean termites are small, soft-bodied insects that build large nests in soil or trees and have underground tunnels that can reach up to 150 metres away from the nest. They cannot survive out in the open.
Termites are great survivors and have existed for millions of years.
They are found in all regions of mainland Australia, both in suburban and country areas. There are over 300 species of termites in Australia.
Termites move underground and live in tunnels of mud that is mixed with their excreta and saliva. Their mud tunnels are built for the purpose of exploring and finding timber to attack. In most areas of Wollongong, they will not build these tunnels out in the open as they must remain in a high humidity environment to survive.
