If you suspect there may be termites in your home or you live in an area where there are a lot of termites then Ipswich Termites can perform a Termite Inspection Report and provide recommendations and options to manage Termites.
If you have found termites in your premises Ipswich Termites recommend a professional termite baiting program be performed for a period of up to two months prior to a chemical soil barrier being installed.
Ipswich Termites can install a continuous chemical barrier around your building. Any termites that travel through the treated area will carry the chemical back to the nest and spread the deadly effect of the chemical barrier throughout the colony.
If termite activity is found, an above ground baiting system can be used. Termite bait stations installed by Ipswich Termites are placed close to termite activity and the termites consume the bait and take it back to the nest, therefore infecting and eliminating the colony.
“A CSIRO survey reported that almost 33 percent of Australian homes had a history of termite attack”
Termites are an ancient group of insects whose origins date back more than 100 million years to the Cretaceous Period and although they are commonly called “white ants” their resemblance to ants is superficial and are more closely related to cockroaches, only the young nymphs and workers could be called white. Termites in Australia cause great economic losses to timber in service, however most termites are grass feeders or feed on decaying wood in service. BEFORE applying a costly soil-barrier treatment to existing buildings, it is important that the termite species has been correctly identified, as non-pest termite species and pest termite species occur in the same area.
