How to prepare for Termite Pest Treatment Service?

Experienced DIY-ers with extensive knowledge of termites can successfully detect, prevent and treat termite problems in their home. However, if you're not knowledgeable in the different types of termites and the best methods to eliminate them, you're better off calling Perth's finest pest control operators to help you out. Depending on the method used, your technician will provide you with a set of steps you'll need to follow to successfully prep your home for the treatment.

Once you complete all the steps, you can leave it up to Perth's professional pest control operators to get the job done right and on time, providing you with excellent results and pest-free home.

Regardless of the pest control method used, you'll be required to follow a set of preparation steps to get everything ready for your pest control technicians to do their job.

Insecticide injections

Your pest control specialist will let you know which method will work best for your home. If they decide to go with insecticide injections, here's what you'll need to do to prep:

  • Prepare to leave your house for most of the day, as treatment may involve drilling into the concrete to treat the soil beneath, depending on the type of termites found.

  • Following your technician's instructions, you'll need to move all appliances and furniture away from the walls in the areas where they're planning to conduct their treatment.

  • You'll need to clear out and store any loose items, such as books, clothes and toys, as well as breakable items in areas that will be treated.

  • You'll need to clear out all closets and cabinets that will be treated.

  • You should also note down and mark any areas where you've noticed termite activity, so your technician can have a clearer picture of all affected areas.

Fumigation

If they decide to go with fumigation, here's what the prep process will include:

  • Prepare to leave your home for at least a few days. The fumigation process is quite different from insecticide injections and requires the use of lethal gas to eliminate pests from the entire structure. Because your entire home will be completely filled with gaseous pesticides, known as fumigants, you will need to relocate your entire family, and all pets, including fish.

  • You'll also need to remove all plants from your home. Do not return to your home before you get the green light from your pest control specialist.

  • Depending on the extent of the infestation, the fumigant will need to stay inside for up to 30 hours. Afterwards, your home will need to be aerated for at least 12 hours, and once it's safe to return, you can enter your home.

  • You'll need to also remove any food and medicines from your home or pack them up in fume bags.

  • Water the ground around the perimeter of your home so that the fumigant can go into the soil beneath and around your home.

  • Follow any additional steps that will be given by your pest control specialist to make sure your home, your family, and your possessions are safe during the fumigation process.

These are some of the main preparation steps you need to complete according to Perth's leading pest control experts. Once you've gone through each of the points on the list, your home will be prepared for treatment, and you can leave the rest of the process up to your technician, so you can have your home pest-free and ready in no time.

Termites: How to Identify and Control Them

If you're worried that you might be dealing with a termite infestation or you've noticed some termite activity but aren't sure what you should do about the problem, we are here to assist you every step of the way and provide you with useful information on proper inspection and pest control so you can get rid of your problem for good. Before you seek treatment and start addressing the termite damage that's occurred, you will need to know how to properly identify termites and what action to take to get the situation under control. Here's what you'll need to know.

How much does a termite treatment cost?

There are several factors that influence the cost of termite treatments which is why the average price can range from $150 up to $5,500. While the main factors that determine the price of a termite treatment are mainly the size of your home, the extent of the problem and the treatment method used, location can also play a role in the cost. That's mainly because some areas tend to be more prone to termite infestations, and therefore typically require a more aggressive approach. That's why a termite treatment may cost  $200 – $4,000 in Sydney, whereas in certain areas which are considered as hot spots, you may expect to pay up to $5,500.

How do I know if I have termites? Top 5 signs

Termites can be a serious threat when it comes to home damage. While they mostly target the wood in our homes, they can also cause damage to insulation, books and other items in the home, since aside from wood, they can also eat paper, drywall, and even plastic. In extreme cases, termites can cause a lot of structural and aesthetic damage, and can even bring down an entire house. That's why the first step in dealing with this problem is to learn how to spot termite infestations and find the right baiting or chemical termite treatments that will take care of your problem.

Let's take a look at some of the most common signs to look out for when it comes to termite colonies and termite damage so you can determine if you require termite protection and termite management without calling pest control services right away.

1. Damaged or hollowed wood

If you're dealing with a termite infestation, the first signs you might spot would be wood damage below or behind wooden surfaces, such as floors and walls. As thermites feed on the wood, over time they cause structural damage that can even be seen with a naked eye. Once they hallow out or damage the wood, you will need to act fast to prevent further damage to your home's structure and integrity.

2. Blisters in wood flooring

Noticing blisters on the surface of your wooden floor is yet another sign of active termites that are causing damage to your home. Blisters caused by termites are easy to spot and may appear similar to water damage at first glance.

3. Wood dust

The biggest telltale signs of a termite infestation are the mysterious piles of pellets and wood dust that appear to be sawdust at first glance but are actually termite droppings. If you notice droppings resembling sawdust or coffee grounds, you may be dealing with drywood termites.

4. Wings

Termites can fly their way into your home, and once they settle on a certain spot their wings will fall off. If you see a lot of wings on your window sills or any other entry point to your home, but no actual insects, this might mean that they are already hard at work on your home's wooden structures.

5. Mud tubes

Other common signs of subterranean termites include mud tubes that can be found in areas where your home meets the ground. They can be the size of a pencil and are a result of the tunnels termites dig underneath the surface of your home, or underneath trees or sheds, so they can maintain a certain temperature and humidity level required for them to thrive.

To help you determine the best treatment option, you will need to conduct a thorough inspection of your home, looking for termite entry points, and signs of termite action so you can treat the issue accordingly and on time. Before we discuss the best treatment plans for termite infestations, let's take a look at some of the best ways of preventing and managing the risks of termite attacks.

Other signs you can look for include:

  • termite bodies

  • swarms of termites

  • clicking sounds coming from your walls, and

  • uneven or bubbling paint

Frequently asked questions

How do you kill termites?

One of the most common ways to get rid of termites is using Boric acid. You can use Boric acid on an open infestation or on pieces of wood and furniture you suspect might be infested. You can also use beneficial nematodes, which are unsegmented worms whose sole purpose is to hunt down termites and other garden pests. They’ll be able to eliminate the infestation within 48 hours of planting them.

What are the signs of termites in your home?

Before you take any necessary measures to get rid of termites in your home, you’ll need to track down the infestation. Signs like holes in woodwork, sagging floors and hollow parts of your foundation are more than enough evidence that you have termites in your home, and you need to take action before things get out of hand.

Where do termites live?

Termites thrive in warmer climates. There are over 360 types of termites in Australia, classified in three main categories according to where they nest and feed: subterranean, drywood and dampwood. Subterranean termites live in a wide range of areas, dampwood termites can be found in coniferous forests, while drywood termites can be found in hardwood forests.

Can you see termites?

While they are very tiny, termites are visible with the naked eye. They have a soft body and can be grey, white or brown. Same as with other insects they have a head, a thorax and an abdomen. What differentiated them from other insects the most is the fact that their waist and antenna are straight and their wings are the same length (this goes for winged termites).
