termite prevention

Termite prevention in Albury, Wodonga, Rutherglen, and surrounding areas

We offer multiple ways of reducing your risk of termite attack – there are many methods of termite prevention, each with different benefits. The best chance you have of termite prevention is a pre-construction termite barrier. If you don’t have one, or are unsure, then this is the page you need.

Our products include termite interception & baiting, chemical soil barriers, and regular termite inspection.

Termite Interception - Our preferred termite prevention

Termite Interception & Baiting is our preferred method of termite prevention.

This method involves placing termite traps in the ground at regular intervals around the entire perimeter of your house. As termites come towards the house, the idea is they find the termite traps first before they enter your home

Our Products

Our company doesn’t use low quality systems. We are accredited installers of the three best Termite Interception & Baiting Systems on the Australian market. 

The fist Termite Interception & Baiting System on the Australian market that includes pre-baited stations. Much more effective than traditional timber-only stations that require baiting when termites are active in the station.

The latest Termite Interception & Baiting System on the Australian market. It also includes pre-baited stations, like Sentricon AlwaysActive. We consider this to be the highest-quality system on the market.

The best timber-only Termite Interception & Baiting System. These systems require the termites to be present in the station before bait is applied (see photos above). Exterra is a cheaper alternative to pre-baited systems. 

Our Guarantee

If termites get past our Termite Interception & Baiting Systems, we will treat the termites for free and repair or replace any structural timbers affected by the termites. 

There are not many pest control companies that can offer this type of guarantee on their termite prevention. We are confident in the quality of our work.

Chemical Barriers - traditional termite prevention

The old ways are still the best ways in some situations. 

We recommend chemical soil barriers when we are confident that we can do a good job. Access restrictions, builder’s rubble under paths, and other factors can make it impossible to achieve a full barrier. When we aren’t confident, we recommend Termite Interception & Monitoring Systems

We exceed the standard when it comes to chemical termite prevention. A full preventative treatment of a standard sized house will often take around two full working days. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Limitations of chemical barriers.

There are often many limitations to achieving a good result with chemical soil barriers:

  • Access restrictions (low subfloor clearance under suspended floors)
  • We don’t know what is underneath concrete paths when drilling. There could be builder’s rubble, clay soil, or cavities where subsidence has occurred.
  • Concrete slab type. In-fill slabs require drilling of the interior slab edge, which is impossible due to fixed cupboards, carpets, tiles, etc.
  • Garden beds against houses. Frequent watering of gardens can dilute the termiticide and reduce its effectiveness. 
Termite Interception & Baiting Systems are not affected by many of these limitations. As long as there is access to the perimeter of the building, termite stations can be installed for effective termite prevention.
 
Non-toxic
The chitin synthesis inhibitors used in termite bait stations are non-toxic to mammals. They are also not sprayed over large areas like chemical soil barriers. 
Termite Interception & Baiting Systems have an extremely low environmental impact, and fit with our commitment to the environment.

Only our Pre-construction Barriers are guaranteed to work.

All post construction termite barriers have limitations due to the construction of the house.

This is why we add our warranty on the top of our Interception & Baiting Systems to add value to the system and make them more attractive to homeowners. We choose to wear the cost of treatment if termites get through.

Our company uses the best products in the pest control industry for termite prevention. We stay up to date with changes to the industry and have changed our favourite products as new ones have come on the market.
