Pest Control

Localised Treatment

This treatment is required to treat live termites only. A non-repellent chemical is used for this treatment.

If you locate live termites, you should not try to eradicate them with household or off the shelf pest sprays. While you may succeed in destroying the visible termites, the termite colony will likely be unaffected and will still pose a significant threat to your property.

A localised termite treatment requires locatable active termites to allow the non-repellent chemical used for this treatment to be spread throughout the colony. This will provide the best result in eliminating this termite colony. This treatment can consist of spray, foaming or dusting treatment depending on the location and conditions of the infestation.

This treatment does not provide a blanket protection for your property and is only considered as a first step in protecting your property against timber pests. The cost of a localised treatment can vary between $330 and $550 depending on the severity and areas where treatment is required.

 

Termite Barrier

A chemical termite barrier can protect your home against termites for up to 8 years. The chemical used for a chemical termite barrier is a non-repellent chemical. Some companies may provide a cheap service while utilising a cheaper repellent chemical, however this type of chemical barrier does not provide the same protection as the more expensive non-repellent chemical, which is designed to allow termites to transfer the chemical back to the nest to eradicate the colony. The cost of a chemical termite barrier can vary between $2000 to $3500 depending on the size of the property.

 

Termite Bait Systems

Termite bait systems are generally utilised on properties that are not entirely suitable for a chemical barrier or where it is impractical or difficult to apply a chemical barrier. Termite baiting systems require servicing approximately every 4 weeks on a 12 month program and will usually cost $2000 to $3500 depending on the property size and access etc. This cost includes servicing the bait stations every 4 weeks for the first 12 months. Renewal of the bait station servicing program will be required every 12 months.

 

Which Termite Barrier Should Be Used

A chemical termite barrier is certainly more cost effective as the barrier can last for up to 8 years and the only additional cost is annual timber pest inspections.

Termite bait systems can cost about the same as a chemical barrier, however the ongoing maintenance costs are higher due to the monthly servicing of the bait stations plus an annual timber pest inspection which would be about $750 to $950 per year.

There are pros and cons for any barrier system and selecting the right termite barrier system is very important for the protection of your property.
