It’s very important that the person doing the termite baiting should have many years of field-work experience in termite control and be professionally trained in related subjects, such as termite biology, ecology, building construction and associated likely termite entry points, termite detection and reporting, along with integrated termite management procedures. With so much at stake, the home-owner should NOT risk do-it-yourself amateur treatments or baiting for termites.
The termite baiting and monitoring systems are usually installed in the gardens, around the building where they are working 24 /7 monitoring for termite activity on your property, the in ground stations initially carry the timber monitoring devices. Endapest Services can supply and install all the commercially available systems and will advise you on which one we think would be the best to use for you situation and property. There is also a very good low cost termite baiting and monitoring system now available that our company can supply that you can monitor to reduce your cost and then when termites become active in the station our company will do the baiting parts of the work that requires an intimate knowledge of termite behaviour. The bait is replenished as required and when sufficient consumption of bait has accrued the entire termite colony will be eliminated.
All termite bait used by Endapest Services is a registered product under the requirements of legislation administered by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.
Experts say there is an 80% chance of a subterranean termite nest being within 25 metres of every home on mainland Australia (not Tasmania). Recent CSIRO survey reports 32% of Aussie homes have a history of termite attack and if you check out www.archicentre.com.au their website lists the average cost of treatment and repairs in 2006 as being $6000.
